About the property

Enjoy Our Cozy Modern House Located In The Beautiful Mountains Of Colorado.

** Summer **

Kick back and relax on an acre and a half of outdoor fun. You can hang out on one of the two decks to BBQ or just take in the view. Be sure to lounge on the over-sized deck furniture at night to take in the spectacular view of our bright shinning stars. Shoot some hoops with the kids or knock some balls through some wickets. Throw some logs in the fire-pit because it's a hit for people of all ages. S'mores couldn't taste any better than roasting over an open fire in the cool mountain air. Laughing around the fire will leave ever-lasting memories for you and you loved ones.

Colorado is known for our beauty and being outside. Surrounded by beautiful parks like Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Roosevelt National Forest and lots of others too! You'll find this is a wonderful place to hike, bike, and fish.


In the winter enjoy the gentle slopping driveway which makes a great place to sled, snowboard or ski. Pull out one of the many board games to keep everyone entertained. Sip tea or hot chocolate snuggled up watching a movie with the warm glow of the fire nearby.

Eldora Ski Resort less than 15 miles away. Other ski resorts like Loveland, Keystone, Copper and Winter Park are roughly an hour or less away.

Enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, PS3, High Speed WiFi, Stereo with sub, and the master bedroom's adjustable massaging mattress after a day of fun outdoors!

Outdoor items available on the property:


Fishing Rods

Basketball and hoop


Croquet Set

Propane Grill (+extra tank)

Charcoal Grill (charcoal not provided)

We will almost always be within an hours drive if you need us, otherwise please feel free to text or call with questions while in your private retreat.

Enjoy the quaint town of Nederland for weekend movies, dinning and shopping.

Black Hawk is roughly a 7 mile drive for gambling and entertainment. Over 4th of July weekend Black Hawk puts on the largest firework show in Colorado. You can watch in 'Awe' as they sparkle over the beautiful mountains. However, if you're like us and don't gamble, you'll never know Black Hawk exists, even on the 4th!

Take a day trip to the city, as the Denver Metro area is less than an hour away. Lots of unique and fun attractions like the Butterfly Pavilion, Aquarium, Denver Stock Show and many more are available!

Plenty of off street parking for as many cars as you need.

Take i-70 west from DIA to Central City Parkway exit, head through central city into Black Hawk and make a left on CO119, head appx 7 miles, take a left into the Colorado Sierra neighborhood.

Cell phone service is limited usually only AT&T and Verizon will work.

About Andrew Duncan

We're fun, goofy, laid back folks who love the outdoors. We believe in re-purposing and living healthy. Yep, there's a little bit of hippy in us! Some things outside our home were made from recycled materials, if that's the sort of thing you're into just ask and we'll happily tell you all about some of the projects we've done. My wife is a Colorado native and I'm from Michigan. I work and commute to Boulder everyday and get to soak up some of the amazing views Colorado has to offer on my drive. My wife takes care of our wonderful little boy.

Andrew Duncan purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrew Duncan chose Black Hawk

We wanted to live in the beautiful mountains of Colorado and also wanted to be near a Ski resort. This home fit our tastes and lifestyle perfectly. We love snowboarding, hiking, biking, fishing, having BBQ's and just kicking back sometimes. Our house allowed us to have all the things we love and still be near enough to the city for work and fun.

What makes this house unique

The day we first saw this house was a gloomy rainy day. However, once we came inside, the sun came out and a beautiful big rainbow hovered above our backyard and a young deer crossed underneath the rainbow. We knew this was the house for us and no sign could be clearer.

Lovely, well stocked home with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in this home for a week and were very pleased. It was very well stocked with everything you need and the view from the back patio was amazing. It was great to sit out there and drink my tea in the mornings and soak up the beautiful view before the rest of the family got up.

Wonderful cabin with great owners!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is super compfortable with plenty of room for our family of five. My kids enjoyed the high speed wifi (especially since we had no cell service in the mountains) and my husband and I loved the porches and all the thoughtful touches Andrew and Marie provided in this out of the way location such as laundry pods and toiletry items which a lot of owners might not have thought about. They thought of everything!

The smart tv in the living room stopped working the first night we were there. I emailed them and they responded very quickly. After determining that it really was dead, they replaced it less than 24 hours after the first email. You can't ask for better service than that!

My favorite part was sitting on the porch watching the chipmunks play.

I highly recommend this quiet and cozy cabin!
