About Donna Brannan

Don, born and raised in Colorado married Donna, a New York Native over 34 years ago. Don has enjoyed the cabin since childhood, hiking, biking, skiing, hunting, fishing, climbing and exploring with his parents. We found a trail behind the cabin where a covered wagon had once tipped over. To this day old glass bottles can be dug up at this site. The trail opens to a large meadow and bubbling stream.

Why Donna Brannan chose Black Hawk

A family jewell passed on, now for others to enjoy as well. Colorado history abounds in the area. It is near Peak to Peak Highway which has the most beautiful sights available on the front range.

What makes this cabin unique

A huge feature is that the back door leads onto the Roosevelt National Forest. Hiking & mountain biking trails are feet away to springs and a nearby river. Wildlife prevails in the area; moose, dear and elk are common. Ghost towns and 4 wheel drive trails surround the area, and are a short drive away.

Quiet mountain nights in a cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved loved loved the cabin! Thank you for all your help making sure we knew how to enter after a late night arrival time! The pictures do not do the cabin justice at all-it is so cozy and tucked away far enough to see the stars, hike a bit, and relax but yet close enough to reach several places within a short drive.

Thanks again and we will definitely be back one day soon!

Dan, Misti, Lexi, and Drake Gaston

Nice location, great cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. It is in a central location for what we wanted to do. From Estes Park to Pike's Peak, it is about the same distance to all.

The cabin was just the right size for us. The parking area was large enough so that we could turn our Suburban around. We didn't get to take advantage of the hiking outside the back door.

Hope to stay there again.

So sweet and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin, but the very sweet and accommodating owner made our trip! We Felt like we were in great hands the whole time. Donna is the perfect balance or being available but not intrusive. We had a lot of chaos going on and needed this weekend in the mountains badly. Donna was there at every turn trying to help us get settled and relax.

I would recommend downloading your GPS map to your phone while you have service because you won't have any until you get on the WiFi at the cabin.

Great Weekend! We will be back :)

Cozy cabin in the woods with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We aren't fancy people with a fancy house, but when we travel, we tend to stay deluxe. My husband is a bit OCD and finds most hotel rooms gross. We needed a pet-friendly place to stay and wanted to be closer to nature than Boulder and were so lucky to find Dancing Bear. More spacious than a hotel suite, very comfortable furniture, all the modern conveniences of home, cuter than cute decor and located in a beautiful forest. We saw humming birds at the feeders every day we were there. The owners were more than accommodating and seemed to think of everything. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.

Relaxing and fun get-away.

  • 5 of 5

The property is in an ideal location for enjoying the beautiful state of Colorado. My friends and I appreciated the quick access to Nederland and the wonderful Golden Gate Canyon State Park. The Peak to Peak scenic drive would be gorgeous any time of year. The cabin's accommodations were comfortable and I hope to make it back for more visits in the upcoming years! Thank you Don and Donna!
