  • Wonderful Few Days


    Well kept property. Owners were very hospitable and provided information about things to do while in Black Hawk. They respond to any needs very promptly. Nice small porch to sit outside on and enjoy the mountain air. Plenty of parking space. Easy access to anywhere in town. It was a great stay!

  • Black Hawk gem


    This is a lovely home in a very convenient, accessible location with a beautiful, well equipped kitchen, quiet porches for relaxing and comfy beds to rest up in after a long day. It seems our every need was thought of beforehand (soft bathrobes & toiletries, cold water in fridge and even chocolate!) Thank you for being such helpful hosts. Next time I visit the grandkids I'll be back!

  • Beauty and comfort


    The house is beautifully decorated with lots of amenities. Our host took care to add a lot of detail in the house from robes to a well planned kitchen. The host had a bottle of red wine and some biscottis for us. Very nice touch.

    The house is walking distance to the casinos. Hiking is a short distance.

    The host mentioned great places to eat.

    Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

  • Mountain Getaway with family


    Beautiful property and gracious hosts! Perfect for our gathering and plans. Easy walk to many things including restaurants, casinos and trails and hiking. Didn't expect the 8 inches of snow but we enjoyed it anyway. Hot tub is a wonderful perk. We will definitely be back!!
