Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We came here on our hunt for a wedding venue. It was soo beautiful that we were set on having it here until we started searching a little more and realized we could do a lot more with the cost. The only real downside besides the expense was that you would have to use their DJ because of a tower nearby that messes with the audio. I would recommend this venue to older couples, who are less concerned about the music and more concerned about the atmosphere.

“Not my favorite spot”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Dark and not very interesting or interactive. Maybe we missed something, but I didn't see much to see, learn, or do.
