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.

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.

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!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! First and foremost Andrew and Marie were a pleasure! All our needs were met during our stay and they were always willing to accommodate us if we needed them. About the location and home: even though the home was only on 1.5 acres with neighbors around us, it felt very very private. The location was great—just a 15-20 min drive to the town of Nederland, which was a wonderful, quaint little town that gave us a much needed break from the big city life. There was a large grocery store and several shops and restaurants Everyone we encountered was so nice. Back to the home...The accommodations of the yard were great for our dogs. They had ample room to play in the terrific fenced in side yard which we discovered our second day in. The home itself was really nice and well maintained. It was a little too cold to enjoy the patio and balcony, but I would imagine it would be great to sit outside in the other seasons. We always had hot water and heat, which is important for us south Floridians in the winter :). The house interior looked a little bigger in the pictures so it was a little cozier than expected for 5 adults and our dogs, but we adjusted quite nicely. We were able to cook a nice Christmas dinner in their good-sized kitchen but found using my own pots/pans and such was more comfortable for me. A lot of the kitchenware items were old and worn and there were a lot of expired spices and left over foods from previous guests—Nothing we couldn’t adjust to by bringing in the things we needed. The bathrooms were well-stocked, and bedrooms clean. The master bed was very comfortable! The modern front load washer and dryer was a true blessing for such a long stay. We had everything we needed to keep our clothes clean and dry. All-in-all the 10 day stay was wonderful, and we even got the white Christmas we were hoping for! Thanks Andrew and Marie for sharing your home with us!!

Warm and cozy mountain home, highly recommandable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 rented the cabin the beginning of December. We're from Florida and the kids have never seen snow. It was truly a winter wonderland. We could not have picked a better cabin for our family. Andrew and Marie were exceptional host and was available for questions at any time. The cabin was accommodating to all of our needs and then some! The kids loved having the PS3 and the croquet set; even in the snow! We will definitely be making this an annual trip. Highly recommend!

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.
