B is for...

Built in 1917 as a summer home and seasonal hunting lodge for Charles Boettcher, one of Colorado’s most prominent entrepreneurs, the Boettcher Mansion is a well preserved example of the historic Arts & Crafts style popular in the early 20th century. The mansion is located on the top of Lookout Mountain in Golden. It has views of Denver and the Continental Divide.

There are three locations for your event: The Mansion, Carriage House and Gazebo. You can rent them individually or together. Here is some information from their website: “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 150. 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 wild turkeys, deer and elk that once roamed the property, is a rustic spot for intimate gatherings of 20 or less.” The cost to have a reception here varies depending on the room you choose and the time of day.

There are 12 on the list of approved caterers; it includes: Catering By Design, Colorado Catering Company, The Food Guy, Footers Catering, Gourmet Fine Catering, The Gourmet Kitchen, LeBrian's Catering, Occasions by Sandy, Sage Creek Catering, Tony Rosacci's Fine Catering.
