About the Property
2 bedroom cabin with high-end finishes. Forested stream and mountain setting.
For the nature lover, there is world-class hiking, cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, back country alpine touring, snow-shoeing, climbing and fishing right out the front door. Or take a very short drive to the James Peak and Indian Peaks Wilderness Areas and experience beautiful alpine lakes, native wildflower meadows and magical subalpine forest. If you like to ride your ATV or dirt-bike, then the Moon Creek Cabin offers a unique jumping off point to explore the old mining roads of Upper Moon Gulch and the historic mining town of Apex. Ride right from the cabin!
If you prefer a scenic drive, the Peak to Peak Highway is only two miles away and you can take a 10 minute drive to the funky town of Nederland with numerous good restaurants and unique gift shops. Or drive 45 minutes north, and visit Estes Park which is the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. To the south are the towns of Black Hawk and Central City, known for casinos and the Central City Opera. The progressive town of Boulder is only a 40 minute drive to the east where you can visit the famous Peal Street Mall and the hand-painted Dushanbe Tea House. Finally, we are only 75 minutes from Denver International Airport.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Black Hawk, CO, USA:
We purchased this property in January 2014 and completely remodeled it with high-end custom finishes. We fell in love with the cabin's location (at the end of a road) and the privacy it offers as well as the small stream in the backyard.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Moon Creek Cabin is very private, yet only a short drive to nearby towns Rollinsville and Nederland and the big city of Denver. You will be surrounded by nature and have access to great hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling or ATVing right from the doorstep. There is a small perennial stream in the backyard. We are also a short drive from Eldora Ski Resort. The cabin is very secluded and there are no neighbors. If you are looking for privacy in a beautiful forested mountain setting, this is the place!
