Welcome to Ellsworth Creek Lodge!

Nestled off the beaten path between Black Hawk and Nederland at 8,300 feet elevation, Ellsworth Creek Lodge is your basecamp for miles of Jeep trails, hiking, biking, skiing, and snow shoeing... or just relaxing in the cabin sauna or around the creekside 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 for your Rocky Mountain getaway!

Ellsworth Creek Lodge is a modernized log home that retained its Rocky Mountain character and charm through its stone and wood finishes, historic mountain decor, and vintage wood stove. Its huge main level windows bring the mountain's natural beauty indoors, though enjoying that beauty from the wrap-around covered deck is even better.

The living room and the master bedroom are each equipped with a 50-inch TV with DVD/Blueray player that have access to Netflix, Youtube, Vudu and other internet channels.

Dining seating for up to 10 at the dining table and kitchen counter.

The house naturally stays cool (65-75 degrees ) even on the hottest summer days. You will not 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.

******Separate Guest Suite*******
The property includes a separate lower level guest suite that may be occupied by other guests. If interested in booking both listings together (4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 10), please check out our "Rocky Mountain Retreat" listing.

The main Lodge has its own deck, BBQ, and a private entrance. There is no interior access between the main Lodge and the Guest Suite.

Floors were insulated and sound-dampening underlayment was installed under the wood floors to minimize sound transmission from the guest suite, but you may still hear hear occasional noise.

The wood floors and HVAC ducts conduct noise downstairs. We ask that guests strive to keep noise levels down when the guest suite is occupied. Removing your shoes at the door helps considerably.

The guest suite does not share any space with the main home as it has it's own kitchen, bath, laundry, patio, BBQ, and entrance.

***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 38 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.

***Neighborhood***
This neighborhood of about a dozen homes is nestled in the bottom of a valley just below Peak to Peak Highway 119. Surrounded by trees and the Roosevelt National Forest, it's sheltered from much of the wind that folks higher up the mountain have to deal with.

Forrest 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.
