Great Space for Big Groups and Retreats

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful space for big groups that want to gather for retreat outside the city. The large living room can be filled with traditional furniture, tables for crafts, or left open for yoga/meditation. The kitchen is very large and well equipped and the dining room table is also gigantic.

Perfect for our large group needs.

Our Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathering was really special and the Mojito Creek home offered everything we needed, in a beautiful and convenient location. We had plenty of room, every convenience we city and country brats are used to, and access to nature and adventure all around us. One morning we saw a family of bobcats sauntering down the hill outside the kitchen window. We skied 30 minutes away at Eldora, saw breathtaking panoramas within 5 minutes in any direction, and even shopped in a posh mall an hour away. We had a couple of minor mechanical issues, which Emily immediately resolved, so our fun and comfort were uninterrupted. We couldn't have had a better reunion, in a more central location, surrounded by such beauty and opportunity for family fun. Our group represented Nebraska, Florida, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. This place could become a family tradition!

Fantastic get-away spot!

  • 5 of 5

i recently spent the weekend at Mojito Creek for a relaxing girls weekend. I drove up through Golden Gate Canyon & I cannot wait to go up there again for hiking when the weather is a bit warmer. We took advantage of the proximity to Blackhawk & did a little gambling. They also have great live bands on the weekend! We spent the rest of our weekend working on various crafting projects while watching movies. The kitchen provided plenty of room for snacks as well as having room to prep & cook meals. Having two refrigerators also gave us plenty of room to store everything. The beds are comfy & well spaced. The house is decorated wonderfully. A houseful of women had no issues sharing the bathrooms. The owner was great and easy to work with. She responded quickly to all questions. We had a great time & I can't wait to go again!

Great get-away

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to spend the weekend with a group of friends scrapbooking, knitting, quilting, or just getting away. There are no stairs which is a definite plus when carting totes, luggage, etc. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen spacious and the crafting room is wonderful. If you're worried about getting up there in the winter - no problem as it is off a priority one road which is kept clean. No stairs to deal with as it is all one floor - with a heated floor. Close to the casinos in downtown Blackhawk and close to Eldora Ski Resort and the town of Nedlerland. Highly recommend!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time retreating at Mojito Creek. The cropping room is nice and big so we could all be together. The dining room table seats 14 comfortably. The beds are high quality and cozy bedding too!! The views are amazing. The kitchen is more than adequate with two ovens AND A WARMER!! Everything you can want is available at Mojito Creek.

Make your reservations soon......
