This was a cool little place to visit and see how the family started their business and left it I guess to the county who now runs it. It was free to go in.

What a beautiful mansion, with lots of easy-walking paths. The view is spectacular, of course! The rangers are very knowledgable about the family, the house, the time when they lived, along with their place in history. Lovely place to visit.

We enjoyed the opportunity to tour this beautiful mansion/lodge...and enjoyed some time in nearby Golden as well...We went to the Buffalo Bill Grave on the same trip...They are quite close together. And then, take the switchback drive back down into Golden! Exhilarating!
