About Donna Brannan
Don, born and raised in Colorado married Donna, a New York Native over 30 years ago. Don has enjoyed the cabin since childhood, hiking, biking, skiing, hunting, fishing, mountain 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 still be dug up at this site. The trail opens to a large meadow and bubbling stream.
Donna Brannan purchased this Cabin in 1965
Why Donna Brannan chose Black Hawk
A family jewell passed on, now for others to enjoy as well, Colorado history abounds 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 plus is the the back door leads onto Roosevelt National Forest. Hiking & mountain biking trails are feet away to springs and nearby river. Wildlife prevails in the area: moose, dear and elk are common. Ghost towns surround the area, and are a short drive away.

Great vacation getaway!
We were able to stay in this gem of a cabin for 2 weeks! My dog loved the hiking trails in the backyard and it was special to see moose. Nederland had just about everything that we needed and when not, I loved driving in the scenic mountains to Boulder. Donna was easily available and made sure that our stay was divine. It was wonderful to smell the clean mountain air at 8800 ft, see the stars and hear absolutely NOTHING... Too bad that we only got to enjoy the first ~4 inches of the early October snowfall. It was especially hard to leave the last day as the snow was really coming down!
We really enjoyed our stay, we were only about 15 min from casinos and shopping but a back yard with trails and 3 min from a great sports bar and liquor store. Couldnt have been better!
Chris, It is amazing that Dancin' Bear is remote, but so close to everything. It sounds like you and your family were also able to enjoy Roy's Last Shot.
Great cabin for the price!
Nice size, well stocked kitchen, great deck, hiking trails right behind the house and Nederland is just a short drive away.
Jenifer, I am so happy that you had a great time and were able to enjoy Ned.
The Dancing Bear Cabin is as cute as it’s name. Comfortable beds, right size place

Chad, Thank you for your great review. Hope to see you and your family again soon.
Perfect quiet spot!
I just spent a few days here with my dogs and it was lovely. Great updated home with comfy beds, usable kitchen, and miles of trails right out the back door.
Sarah, I am so happy you were able to enjoy Roosevelt Nation Forest. It is a very nice feature that guests are able to walk right out of the cabin and be able to enjoy it. Thanks for your review.
