About the property

30'x30' wood floor barn compliments this Mountain home near Golden, CO

This Home and Picnic/Recreation Area makes an ideal location for week long Family Reunions, Wedding Parties, Charity Fundraisers, and Corporate Meetings. The Wood Floor Barn, Picnic Area and large yard are ideal for Organized Group Picnics, Reunions, and other private day-events up to about 50 total.

The main Pine Tree Park Home features a large gourmet kitchen/great room where everyone typically gathers to cook and eat meals, and socialize in a common area. Just off the great room/kitchen is a large living room with 2 couches and a love seat surrounding a gas fireplace and large 4K TV for watching sports or just visiting and catching up. The wraparound log porch has more seating, 2 BBQ Grills, and a 24' long picnic table for outdoor meals. There is also a large hot tub which can seat 6-8. 15 picnic tables are available for outdoor gatherings on the property centered around a gas fire pit for evening ambiance and roasting s'mores. (Only available when there is no fire restriction/ban and MUST be attended at ALL times when burning.)

Master Bedroom 1 has a King Size Sleigh Bed plus Futon and it's large en-suite bathroom includes a 2 person jetted tub, dual vanities, and separate 2 headed shower. This bathroom works well for brides getting ready for their wedding day at any of the 6 wedding/reception venues located within 2 miles of the home.

Master Bedroom 2 has a King Bed and Futon and space for a pack n play. It's en-suite bathroom features a double vanity and triple headed shower with seat.

Bedroom 3 has a queen sized log bed plus a futon. It has a full bath with dual vanity just outside the door.

Bedroom 4 has a queen bed and shares the full bath with bedroom 3.

The wood floor party barn is available as an option for gatherings up to about 50 people. Includes use of a portable 60's vintage bar, freestanding popcorn machine, upright piano (out of tune) and vintage am radio and modern speaker to play music from your phone.

15 picnic tables are available for picnics on the grounds or can be brought inside the barn to supplement the bench seating around the barn perimeter. The historic wood floor barn (30'x30' recreation building) makes an excellent spot for rehearsal dinners, welcoming dinners, family reunions, parties, graduation parties, dancing, or meetings. Contact us for more pictures and details.

We have 2 horseshoe pits and 2 cornhole games along with plenty of space to play catch or just sit outside and watch the deer and elk graze by among the Ponderosa Pines and meadow areas. Also antique swings, monkey bars, teeter totter, balance beam and tetherball available (for use only with liability release signed. Not ADA accessible. Do not meet modern playground safety standards.) If your family wants to spend a few days or a week bonding and getting to know one another again while reminiscing of the good ole days, this is an ideal place to do it.

The home is a comfortable and inviting place to gather as a family and host additional guests for special gatherings or in support of weddings or events at any of the 6 wedding venues located within 2 miles of this home.

Located just above Denver/Golden in the first row of foothills West of Golden and nearest to the cool western town of Golden. One mile off of I-70, it offers a fantastic jumping off point for all of the Denver Boulder Metro Area and the Mountains surrounding. Heading off to the ski resorts is as short as a 40 Minute drive! 20 minutes to downtown Denver and 10 minutes to downtown Golden. 40 Minutes to Denver International Airport or Boulder.

Due to zoning restrictions, we have a 30 day minimum lease but if your need is for less than a full month, we can price it for your actual stay dates. The calendar shown is for actual stay dates but minimum 30 day leases are required for each stay and they can't overlap.

Also available during vacancy- Picnic grounds and/or Barn for day only gatherings. Call or email me separately about those. Reduced rates or donated space available for qualified historic, cultural, or community service non-profits and their fundraising or organizational meetings.

In the foothills just West of Denver and Golden on Lookout Mountain.7 Minutes from Colorado Mills Mall. Very convenient location to Denver Metro and points West via I-70 toward Vail and Breckenridge. 40 Minutes to Denver International Airport or Boulder. 40 minutes to Denver Tech Center. Awesome Hiking and Mountain Biking 1/3 mile up the road is the upper trailhead to the APEX TRAIL which about 10 miles of networked trails with cool views. We are at 7400' and Golden is about 6400' altitude. Near Buffalo Bill’s Grave and Museum, Boettcher Mansion, Lookout Mountain Nature Center and Museum, road bike riding on the Lariat Loop Scenic Byway goes right by in front. Apex Trailhead is 1/3 mile away and offers hiking, Mountain Biking, Downhill Mountain Biking, and snowshoeing (occasionally). It seems far from civilization but is only 5-7 minutes from Colorado Mills, one of the biggest shopping malls in the state. About 40 minutes to DIA, 40 Minutes to Skiing. Loveland 40 min, A-Basin 50 min, Keystone 1hour, Breckenridge 1:15, Copper Mountain 1:05, Vail 1:40. It's about 20 minutes to Downtown Denver and 40 minutes to Boulder. At the hub of 5 major highways so it's super easy and quick to get to all points in the Denver Metro area or to zip up in the mountains on I-70 for first tracks or early fishing, hiking, biking, climbing, or driving up to Mount Evans at 14,000'..

There are no taxes due with this listing. However, this property is on a septic system which is limited and a public water system with very high rates. Day guests that stay on the property more than a few hours should be discussed prior to additional guests arriving. Charges for additional guests are very low if discussed openly and honestly in advance. We are in a High Fire Danger area so Fire Pit may not be allowed by the fire department (check the sign at Hwy 40 and Paradise Rd for high fire danger notices). Generally, the propane BBQ grill is fine to use even during high fire danger times.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
