Overview

The Boettcher Mansion provides a rare combination of historic authenticity and modern amenities from its secluded setting inside the Lookout Mountain Nature Preserve in Golden, CO, only a half-hour drive west of Denver. Built in 1917 as a summer home and seasonal hunting lodge for Charles Boettcher, the former "Lorraine Lodge" was donated to Jefferson County in the 1970s for public use and enjoyment. In 1984, the Arts and Crafts estate was listed on the National Register of Historic Places External Link Icon and now serves as Jeffco's premier historic events venue. A division within the Jefferson County Parks department, the Mansion is self-sustaining, supporting itself primarily from event fees. An impressive example of adaptive re-use, the one-time family residence is perfectly suited for all kinds of social gatherings, including weddings, receptions and commitment ceremonies, along with memorial services and other commemorative milestones. Carefully preserved and sensitively updated in 2005-07, this rustic yet polished architectural gem offers a stunning backdrop for conferences, dances, executive retreats, family reunions, film shoots, fundraisers, lectures, musical performances and trade shows...to name just a few of our ongoing functions.

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!

More for someone looking to book an event. Not really a tourist attraction. Could be more but I think they are just happy to make money on events.
