“Ultimate” is not an exaggeration!
Our family of 5 loved every minute of our 4 night stay here at the cabin. The location is isolated, yet central to so much. We left the property to do 3 things: 1. Hike St. Mary’s Glacier (45 min drive), 2. White Water raft out of Idaho Springs with Clear Creek Rafting Co. (25 min drive), and 3. Fish a rainbow-trout-stocked pond in Golden Gate Valley State Park (15 min drive).
Each excursion was unforgettable but the time we spent on the Cabin Property was pure magic! We completed both the indoor and outdoor scavenger hunts and were super impressed by the variety of clues and tasks Brian provided. Seriously, not too long ago, we spent way too much for our fam of 5 to do an escape room and these cabin scavenger hunts were 100x more entertaining.
The property is filled with nooks and crannies to explore and things to do. We enjoyed lounging in the hammock, panning for gold, finding the secret fort, quiet in the woods at contemplation rock, hikes on Yoga Rock Trail, happy hours on the patio by the stream, s’mores by the camp fire, cozy movie nights by the pellet stove, family poker around the generously-sized coffee table, dinners on the deck right from the grill, and watching hummingbirds zipping comfortably about from feeder to tree and back again. Each night the kids would count down to 8:35 when Brian’s spectacle of lights brings the property alive.
We feel like we hit the jackpot with this rental and can’t wait to return and enjoy its charms again.
TY so much you guys! That is so sweet and it brings me so much joy to see my guests making memories at this very special place 😊� 👏�🏼� 👏�🏼� 👏�🏼�
Fantastic Long Weekend Getaway!
We spent a wonderful long weekend at this property. First, the communication with the owner Brian is excellent. He's very responsive and provided lots of information upfront. The cabin has an interesting history and it's obvious that the owners have put lots of work into it and take lots of pride in ownership - as they should. They've done a wonderful job creating an ambiance of casual elegance. The property itself is exactly as described in the listing. My favorite things about the time we spent there were having wine at night next to the water, enjoying the indoor/outdoor sound system and basking in the beautiful setting and the lovely, romantic coziness of the cabin. One thing we really appreciated is that the house was exceptionally clean when we arrived. In the era of Covid, that is even more appreciated! If you're looking for the perfect, private getaway outside of Denver, you can't do any better than this cabin gem.
You won’t regret staying here! <3
We left a piece of our heart at this cabin! Our family loved the seclusion, trails, fire pit, indoor and outdoor hunt, hammock, hummingbirds, games, stream, sound system, lighting, helpful tips everywhere, and more. The owner’s attention to detail and love for their cabin makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you for sharing it with others.
Thank you Mary! Without a doubt, my ❤️ is in every aspect of this Cabin... it is a labor of love for me. 😊�. Thank you for staying and appreciating it!
We felt so well taken care of. And the treasure hunts are something you would not believe. Out of this world!
And the private trail just outside the door is a luxury!
Cozy cabin experience
Nice cozy cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed being near the water and feeding the hummingbirds. Unfortunately it rained a lot so we couldn’t hang outside much but we did get one round of corn hole in and had fun with the indoor/outdoor sound system.
Blackhawk, Central City, Golden Evergreen. The Cabin feels like it is in a very isolated area, yet Blackhawk/Central City is only 5 miles away. Thick forest and 100-foot tall Evergreens surround the cabin in all directions. Your own gushing stream will make you want to spend all your time outside!. There is also a 100% private 4 mile hiking trail going up the mountain for Cabin guests only! Information on dining, attractions, trails, etc. is all at the cabin. Activities: Hiking, 4-wheelers, Snowmobiles, Fishing, Campfires, Skiing (Eldora Ski Area), Gambling, Shopping, Restaurants, Wildlife Viewing, Cross-Country Skiing, and Sledding... or just Relaxing!
About Brian Richards
I purchased the property in 2002. It was never listed publicly... a friend was selling it. I had NO idea what I was going to do with it...I just knew it was so special I couldn't let it go or I would always regret it :-)

Why Brian Richards chose Black Hawk
This place was like a childhood dream come true for me. Everything about it...is...perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. My wife is a real estate agent, and she's been looking in the mountains for years for another property like it for us to buy in addition, and we just can't find anything like this one. Its so special in that it has the river, ultimate privacy, the true 'log' home feel, big & open, no neighbors, the private hiking trail, surrounded by national forest, etc. Its not hard to find most of those...but getting all of them in 1 property without spending $2M is not easy.
What makes this Cabin unique
This Cabin is a labor of love for me and my family. We constantly upgrade it without hesitation. Because we use it so much ourselves...its so worth spending $ on to make it better. I've had families that have stayed here every year for the last 10 years, and its really fun upgrading it for them too so there is always something new to enjoy :) You can just feel the love that went into making this property an experience when you are there, and its not just the grandiose things, its the finest minute details that we think help make your stay here magical. No effort has been spared to make this the most amazing visit that we possibly can for you. The compliments and endless thank you's I get from my guests warm my heart and motivate me even to make everyone's stay special.
