A historic 90-acre Boulder County mountain resort with ties to Chief Niwot is up for sale.

Frequently visited by the Arapaho tribe as a summer retreat, Gold Lake has also served as a mining camp, girl’s camp, resort and mentoring center for young men since the 1800s, according to Boulder County records.

The property just east of Ward is now for sale, with Colorado real estate firm Slifer Smith & Frampton attaching a $12.5 million price tag and extensive redevelopment plans.

While the resort at 3371 Gold Lake Road was listed for sale in 2015 for $11.5 million, it was last sold in 2005 for $4.5 million, according to Boulder County property records.
