Lovely forest retreat
We had 3 peaceful days in Alices’s cabin and wished we could have stayed longer!
Great stay at a quiet Colorado cabin
Family and I had a great time at an out-of-the-way cabin. Fun in the snow and amazing views
Wonderful and relaxing!
Long Weekend in Colorado
Alice's Acres turned out perfectly for us. We did our grocery shopping and had dinner in Nederland, which is cute. We hiked around at Golden Gate Canyon State Park. We made day trips into Denver and Boulder and went to a concert at Red Rocks. We had our coffee on the deck and campfires a couple of nights. The cabin was a perfect home base for our little reunion weekend.
We had an amazing time at Alice's Acres! Christel was a perfect hostess. The property was beautiful and we enjoyed having our coffee on the porch watching the humming birds. It was exactly what we needed. The road is not paved though so I recommend taking a 4 wheel drive vehicle up there. We took day trips to the national park, Denver and went white water rafting. What a great stay!

About Christel Detsch
I am a native of Germany and came to Colorado in 1974 as an exchange student-a lifetime ago. I have been here ever since but I go back to Europe regularly to visit family and friends. For many years Alice's Acres was our vacation home. Now the children are older, so am I, and we want to share our house with others who love the mountains, the peace and quiet. It is still furnished more like a cozy family retreat rather than a vacation rental. And we still use it as a family now with grandchildren who are learning to love the mountains as we do.
Christel Detsch purchased this House in 1985
Why Christel Detsch chose Black Hawk
There is a little cabin cabin below the house. We stumbled on it in 1977 and spontaneously decided to buy it. We had very little money, barely enough, and it wiped us out. However, we had our mountain retreat. Over the years we added more acres and built the larger home. That's how it started.
What makes this House unique
Of course, I love our house, but I also love the surroundings, the wind in the trees, the fresh air, and most of all the peace and quiet. To step outside in the morning, a cup of coffee in your hand-it is priceless. Our home is authentic Colorado.
