Built in 1917 as a summer home and seasonal hunting lodge for Charles Boettcher, one of Colorado’s most prominent entrepreneurs, at over 100 years old, the Boettcher Mansion is a well preserved example of the historic Arts & Crafts style popular in the early 20th century. Nestled into 110 forested acres on top of Lookout Mountain in Golden, Colorado, the Mansion offers a magnificent setting at 7500 feet, with views of the Continental Divide and the Denver panorama. Donated to Jefferson County by family members in the mid-1970s, this unique stone-and-timber landmark is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has become a popular venue for weddings and receptions.
The Mansion, Carriage House and Gazebo may be rented separately or collectively for social events. The Fireside Room (the home’s original Great Room), with its cathedral beamed ceiling, inglenook fireplace and adjoining Dining Room, Piano Room and Patio, is used for parties of up to 200. The adjacent Carriage House, with its French doors leading to a flagstone patio, can hold groups up to 30-40. And the outlying Gazebo, originally used by the family to observe the deer, elk and wild turkeys that roam the property, is a rustic spot for intimate gatherings of 20 or less.
Clients may choose from a select list of 8 local caterers offering a wide range of menus, prices and services. It is with great confidence that the Boettcher Mansion recommends these professionals to their customers.
