Welcome to the Ellsworth Creek Guest Suite!

Nestled off the beaten path between Black Hawk and Nederland at 8,300 feet elevation, this is your base camp for miles of Jeep trails, hiking, biking, and skiing.... or just relaxing in the creekside cabin sauna or around the flagstone patio fire pit.

We are also just 15 minutes from over 25 casinos in the historic towns of Black Hawk and Central City!

No matter your reason for visiting, this rustically modern log home will provide the perfect ambiance to your Rocky Mountain getaway!

***The Space***
Ellsworth Creek Guest Suite is the garden-level guest apartment of Ellsworth Creek Lodge, which may be occupied by other guests.

The Guest Suite has all of its own amenities (kitchen, bath, laundry room, patio, BBQ, private entrance). There is no interior access between the Guest Suite and the main Lodge.

Despite the home's rustic log exterior, the guest suite is very modern.

Both the living room and the bedroom are equipped with 50-inch Roku TVs and have access to Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, and Vudu.

Custom beetle-kill pine kitchen with concrete counters, range, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and dish washer.

Dining seating for up to six at the table and bar counter.

The guest suite naturally stays cool (65-70 degrees) even on the hottest summer days. You will not need or miss air conditioning.

Coffee, tea, sugar, dry cereal, and oatmeal are provided.

No need to mess with keys as you will have your own access code for the front door.

****PLEASE NOTE****
The main upstairs lodge may be occupied by other guests. Ceilings were insulated and sound-dampening underlayment was installed under the wood floors upstairs to minimize sound transmission from the main lodge. However, the wood floors and HVAC ducts still conduct noise so expect to hear noise from upstairs. We do ask that all guests respect quiet hours from 9:00 pm to 8:00 am.

****Guest Access****
Gilpin County road maintenance is very good after snow storms. Better than Denver Metro most days. However, winter mountain weather can make roadways challenging at times. The driveway is short but is up hill to get out. Even when roads and the driveway are plowed, snow often compacts creating icy surfaces. Two-wheel drive vehicles may experience difficulty during winter months.

Four-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles are typically not necessary but are recommended between November and April due to unpredictable weather and road conditions.

****Neighborhood****
Forest and mountain-side views are all around the property. The adjacent neighbor's property includes a scenic pond that feeds Ellsworth Creek.

Ellsworth Creek runs through the back yard of the property. Typical of mountain streams, water flow can be low in late summer and fall.

Two neighboring homes are visible from this property. Peak to Peak Highway 119 is also visible from the back yard half way up the mountain side.

Conveniently located close, but not too close, to everything the mountains have to offer:

1.0 miles - Ellsworth Gulch Road Trailhead - jeep, hiking, and biking trails
2.1 miles - Town of Rollinsville
2.2 miles - Last Shot Restaurant
2.3 miles - Mid County Liquor Store
4.8 miles - Golden Gate Canyon State Park (hiking, biking, fishing)
6 miles - Town of Nederland (groceries, food, brew pubs, shopping)
7 miles - Eldora Ski Resort
12 miles - Black Hawk and Central City (over 25 casinos, restaurants, historic scenery)
23 miles - Boulder
25 miles - Idaho Springs (rafting, zip lining, hot springs)
26 miles -Golden
33 miles - Red Rocks Amphitheatre
35 miles - Rocky Mountain National Park
45 miles - Denver (Denver Int'l Airport - 61 miles)
49 miles - Loveland Ski Resort
52 miles - Estes park
56 miles - Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort
58 miles - Winter Park Ski Resort
59 miles - Silverthorne (factory outlet stores)
69 miles - Keystone Ski Resort
73 miles - Breckenridge Ski Resort
742 miles - Las Vegas (I'd just go to Black Hawk)

Neighborhood is 1.6 miles off of Peak to Peak Highway 119 down a gravel road.

***Phone and Internet***
Not many cell services work in Gilpin County except AT&T. However, onsite WiFi allows for WiFi calling from most phones.

The home's internet is a 37 Mbps DSL land-line service through Century Link. Service interruptions are very rare as there are no dishes, satellites, cell towers, or portable WiFi devices to worry about. The router is on a battery backup so you should have internet service even in the event of a power outage, which is also very rare.

The property does not have land-line phone service.
Located in Black Hawk, this guesthouse is in a rural area and in the mountains. Howlin Wind Brewing & Blending and Eldora Mountain Resort are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Manchester Lake and Thorn Lake. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
