The Black Monarch was re-built after a fire in 1899 as a brothel, casino, and saloon. It is a storied slice of Victorian era Americana , nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountain gold rush city of Victor, Colorado. The building is exquisite in its design and well preserved with original windows, doors, tin ceilings, and stairs. Local legend states that the building is haunted by the ghost of a miner who died in a gunfight, and was originally wired by electrical genius Nikola Tesla.
“This is an experience and I recommend anyone passing through Victor to stay at least one night here. Super eclectic place and the stories behind each room are creepy and awesome if you like the strange and unusual or just true crime. The town does kind of shut down after dark. A lot of the stores and restaurants close at 5 so you will have to head to Cripple Creek but that is a fun town to hangout in. More places to eat and lots of casinos. We had a nice experience staying here and would definitely stay again if back through town!”
Adorable A-frame cabin with stunning views of Pikes Peak. Quaint but not too remote. Close to numerous hiking trails, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Minutes from Cripple Creek/Victor and Woodland Park.
“I went to stay at Erik’s place with a couple friends from out of town and had a wonderful experience. We chose this place because it was very reminiscent of a cabin we used to stay at near the Seattle area and the place met every need we wanted. The cabin was perfectly ready for us upon arrival with clear instructions for everything and even included a good amount of food and drinks for us. Erik spoke very kindly and answered every question we had right away. Would very much recommend this place to anyone looking for a mountain getaway like we were.”
Pineridge Cabin is a cozy honeymooner's get-away nestled on a wooded hillside at 9,400 feet above sea level. It is located nine miles from Cripple Creek, to the south, and nine miles from Divide, to the north, and thirty-fives miles west of downtown Colorado Springs. Approximately forty-five miles from the Colorado Springs Airport and 122 miles from the Denver International Airport. It offers all of the amenities of home except a washer and dryer but the scenery and views well make up for it.
“The location can't be beat if you are looking for a true mountain getaway. It was super cozy with all the amenities you need. The hot tub was amazing for soaking after a long day of snowshoeing at nearby Mueller State Park. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and utensils and even a few basic oils and spices. I would highly recommend staying at this cabin if you are looking for a relaxing retreat!”
