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 shining 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 your 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 sloping 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 a 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, dining, 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.

Wonderful peaceful cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Andrew and Marie’s cabin. It is clean and they have everything you would ever need. It is located within an hour to Denver and there is some great hiking very close by. It was the perfect place to take our family for some relaxation and outdoor fun. We loved it!

We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and fairly comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the house and the general location of the property. It had just about everything we needed and the house was clean and comfortable. Andrew and Marie answered any questions very quickly. Just a couple of negatives. The house does not have air conditioning which would have been ok if there had been a couple of fans. Could not cool off the upstairs very well. Also the large deck that is seen in the pictures is on the road side of the house which is not a very nice view and very dusty because the road is a dirt road so we couldn't really spend much time on the deck. There was some food in the cabinets but several things were out of date. We brought our own food so this was not a huge issue.

The weather was great while we were there and it is a beautiful area! (No bugs! Yay)

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Good cabin with nice view. Close access to several trails in Golden Gate Canyon State Park and 45 minutes into Boulder. Being situated midway between Nederland and Black Hawk was very convenient.

Exceeded our expectations in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Great place in a mountainous neighborhood. Flew in to Denver from New Orleans with my wife. Joined our 2 nieces and a nephew who live in Denver and hiking is their gig. They all loved the place and so did we! Plenty of hot water for showering and great hiking surrounded us. Nephew tried to get us into Black Hawk for a casino tour, but we didn’t make it. Drove through Black Hawk on the way back to Denver and I think my nephew was right:-) but we were all too busy hiking and yearning for the outdoors, which we got. Black Hawk is there if you need it! Owners are great, responsive and accommodating. Oh, Huge plus with the high speed wi-fi. I had to work remotely some and I worked looking out the window with the view you see on the Website. Very Nice!! WiFi was faster than I have at home- Super Fast! Great Place and this is our new go-to spot in the Rockies!

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Marie and Andrew were most accommodating. House is close to state park, in a quiet neighborhood and has all the amenities. This time was just the two of us but this would be a perfect house to bring our son, his wife, and their children.

We absolutely loved our stay!!! They were great! They answer our questions very fast! They had a lot of things that I would have never thought about. I forgot the bubble bath for the kids and they had some! We loved it! Lots of room for the kids to run around!
