Property description

**Ask about discounts for couples and Winter Weekends.**

Backcountry skiing, snowshoeing and sledding in RMNP plus ice skating downtown are very close by, and we are happy to recommend equipment rental and trail guide locations.

Come experience the majesty of Rocky Mountain National Park (celebrating 100 years in 2015), the abundance of elk, and the quaint village of Estes Park!

Enjoy your mountain get-away in a comfortable cabin nestled at the base of 14,000 foot peaks. Gorgeous mountain views and wildlife such as elk, coyote, deer, and rabbit are yours for year-round viewing from the cabin. Get outside and go hiking or snow-shoeing on one of the numerous RMNP trails on both sides of the Continental Divide, go fly-fishing, horse-back riding, or river rafting with our convenient location as your home base. Great shopping, live music, festivals and art venues are located downtown and the newly renovated event center. We have all the cook- and serve-ware you need to prepare your meals and relax at home. For those of you who prefer not to cook, we can recommend a lovely meal at one of Estes Park's fine restaurants.

Awesome views of the Rocky Mountains are yours from this clean and comfortable cabin. Conveniently located less than a mile of the Rocky Mountain National Park entrance and within a mile from the heart of downtown Estes Park, you can come home after a fun day of hiking, shopping, or exploring and relax in the spacious living room by the wood-burning moss-rock fireplace. The living room has a cozy leather couch, leather chair with ottoman, elk horn chandelier, TV with Dish Satellite, DVD player, and wireless Internet service.

Enjoy gorgeous scenery from every window. The cabin is adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park land and has a peek of the Big Thompson River, so wildlife abounds. The cabin is very private and surrounded by natural beauty, but is also close to the town of Estes Park with all of it's amusements, activities, restaurants and shops.

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need for meal preparation (including a four-burner stove, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and coffee supplies, toaster, pots and pans, dishes, glassware, cooking utensils, silverware, spices and linens) with an adjacent dining area. The dining table seats 6 people comfortably.

You can also barbeque using the charcoal grill and dine on the wooden table and chairs with umbrella in Summer and Fall. Kick back on the Adirondack chairs on the front deck and soak up the views of Long's Peak, Mt Meeker, Twin Sisters and more.

One bedroom on the main level has a queen bed with down comforter, plenty of closet space, walls finished with knotty pine and windows for a great view of the mountains.

The sleeping loft upstairs has a double bed and a futon, a hexagonal window facing the Continental Divide views, and a sloped ceiling. The loft is separate and private, perfect for kids yet tall enough for 2 adults to stand, get dressed, or sit and read. We recommend the sleeping loft for up to 2 adults or 3 children/juniors.

There is also a twin bed in an alcove on the main level with a window and a door for privacy.

Full bath with tub/shower and plenty of towels provided. Laundry room has a washer and dryer.

We can provide you with recommendations for hikes, activities and restaurants here in Estes Park, and we keep maps and brochures in the cabin for your reference. Please inquire if you need further information; we live here in Estes Park and are happy to share local information!

We have posted reviews from our guest books kept in the cabin. We are very grateful to have such special guests come from all over the country to visit. We strive to make every guest feel that their stay at our cabin is an enjoyable and memorable one!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are an active family of four including 2 children (a boy 12 years old and a girl 9 years old) living here in Estes Park. We love the grandeur and beauty of the mountains and the abundance of wildlife in this part of Colorado. We never get used to seeing the herds of elk, snow-capped mountains, streams full from the snow melt, wildflowers and aspens in all their seasonal colors. We love to share in the natural beauty with visitors from nearby and from far away.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
This location has truly amazing mountain views of Long's Peak, Mt. Meeker, Twin Sisters and the Continental Divide. It is also surrounded by open space, bordered by National Park land, close to the Big Thompson River and provides excellent year-round opportunities for viewing wildlife right outside in the front yard, including herds of elk, deer, coyote, rabbit, badger, birds, and even the occasional bear. The proximity to the Rocky Mountain National Park (less than 1 mile to the RMNP entrance) and downtown Estes Park (about a mile) make this a perfect mountain getaway for adventurous exploring or pampered relaxation. Our cabin makes a great base of operations for hiking and touring within RMNP and is also close to restaurants, golf, and other amusements and activities in the quaint village of Estes Park. We trust you will enjoy it as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Excellent mountain views and privacy. Lots of opportunities for seeing wildlife (especially elk, sometimes in large herds) year-round. You can relax in front of a fire in the wood burning fireplace on the leather couches in the living room. BBQ on the Weber charcoal grill and dine at the wooden picnic table outside, or just kick back on the Adirondack chairs on the front deck and soak in the gorgeous views!
