When visiting Creede, the Last Chance Mine is well worth the stop when exploring Bachelor Loop. Jack will fill you in on the history of the mine and how he came to acquire the property and his plans for restoration. We had the pleasure of staying overnight in one of the quaint, rustic cabins. We enjoyed a glorious sunset over... More

Last Chance was a great time! My girlfriend and I had a nice rustic cabin, great views on the deck, and found some amethyst while rock collecting! Very relaxing and peaceful within just a few minutes from Creede. Can't wait to go back when the underground mine tour is open!

Well worth the stop while driving the Bachelor Loop! The history of this place is amazing. It is very family and pet friendly. We loved being able to actually do some rock hounding and even came away with some beautiful amethyst. The cabins are so cute and the museum is awesome. Everyone there was extremely nice and helpful. We will... More

Four of us (parents, daughter and son in law) both made our second stop at the Last Chance Mine above Creed, CO yesterday. It was a much fun the second time as it was the first. First of all, if you are lucky enough to meet Jack, the owner of the place you will be treated to a real character.... More

We found this jewel while touring Bachelor's Loop in Creede late in the day. We brought our grandsons back the next day/150 mile round trip/so they could gather rocks. We had a picnic at 10,500' with a gorgeous view. There are two rustic cabins where we plan to stay the next time we're in the area. Jack has something great... More

Jack takes you on a tour of the mining history of Creede. He has a vision for development in the future, too! He has room to stay in which are a historical statement in themselves. Look at the museum, too.

When we arrived we were greater by the owner and told the story of how he acquired the mine and his mission to preserve it. We arrived later in the evening and not knowing Bachelor Loop that well wanted to beat the darkness. Will definitely revisit when I am back. The work and efforts to preserve the mine amazing.
