Blackstone Rivers Ranch, an upscale riverfront private resort and event center, is currently under construction near historic Idaho Springs, CO, where the Colorado Gold Rush began. Completion of the first phase of construction will be Spring 2016.

Our amphitheater will be an eclectic arts venue with quality entertainment that is ideal for people who prefer the intimacy of a smaller crowd.

“Bookings will begin in the winter of 2015 for summer events starting in June of 2016, including weddings,” said Rachel Betz, owner of Blackstone Rivers Ranch. “This will be a brand-new indoor/outdoor upscale private event center, resort and amphitheater near picturesque and quaint Idaho Springs, and a mere thirty-five minute drive from Denver.”

The Blackstone Rivers Ranch location near Idaho Springs enables those wanting to host an upscale mountain event to forego the expense and long drive to the ski resorts on the western slope, which is why its primary focus is on high-end riverfront weddings and private parties. However, Blackstone Rivers Ranch will also host wine and food tastings, leadership and survival camps for children and adults, fitness and wellness retreats, outdoor and wilderness sport experiences, family reunions and business conferences.

Additionally, its natural amphitheater, built among the aspens and pines above the venue, will feature music events and concerts, plays and other exhibitions. “Our amphitheater will be an eclectic arts venue with quality entertainment that is ideal for people who prefer the intimacy of a smaller crowd,” said Betz.

Once its entertainment and event phase is complete, Blackstone Rivers Ranch will proceed with construction of a boutique creekside hotel with approximately eighteen finely appointed, luxurious guest rooms. The owners anticipate this second phase is two to three years away, and three to four years for the already-approved-by-the-city boutique creekside spa and fitness center.

“Idaho Springs is perfectly poised for a second ‘gold rush’ of sorts, as millions of dollars have been earmarked for infrastructure improvements and plans are in process to re-energize both its historic Old Town and the broader city,” said Betz. “A group of investors are currently analyzing the Argo Mill and Mine for redevelopment in town. We’re very excited for what is to come for our community. Blackstone Rivers Ranch promises to play a major part in these boom times, as we are offering an experience currently not found in Idaho Springs.”
