Car: Recommended

The log home was built in 2006. It is nestled at the bottom of the Fish Creek Valley which protects it from the wind during harsh months of cold and blowing snow. The cabin sits right above Fish Creek which flows year round through the property. The home faces south with excellent exposure to the sun. The rap around pourch and windows face the south as well, giving you a tranquil view of Twin Sisters mountain, aspens and pines.

There is a fire pit located on the ground level of the property. Lighting in the trees provide a wonderful night of relaxation with peace and quiet.

The log home is located in Larimer County. Access to the golf course 1 mile north, Public Pool 2 miles north , downtown Estes 3 miles north, Lake Estes Marina 2.5 miles north and RMNP 7 miles NW are some of the more popular spots to visitors. Winter months provide beautiful 2 or 3 day get aways with a roaring fire and hot cup of coffee. Check out our winter rates for the off season

Golf: Estes Park Golf Courses

18 hole located 1 mile north of the property

9 Hole located 3 miles north from the property.

Ski: Snow skiing is available at Eldora Ski Area. Located approx 40 miles south on Hwy 7 towards Nederland/Boulder.

Great for family and very reasonable pricing. Advanced runs available. Breckenridge, Vail, Keystone, Etc. About 3 hour drive from the log home one way.

There are some hills that offer good tubing experiance if the snow is cooperating.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: I am the owner/builder of the home. I designed this home to meet all of the needs that I found important while living in Estes Park over 24 years.

Why Estes Park:
I loved this lot and place that it resides. Living in Estes Park can be very beautiful,however, because of the wind, it can turn into something very different, very fast. I chose this property because of the three factors, wind, water and fire. The home is built in a protected area just off of Fish Creek, about 2.6 miles south of Estes Park. The house is protected from the violent wind storms that sometimes hit the mountainous area. While other areas of Estes will see up to 50 mile per hour gusts, my home rarely feels any of this. Water is always a treat. With moderate snow in winter and spring, Fish Creek will run all year long. This cute little creek runs right through the property and attracts all types of wildlife such as deer, elk, moose, bear, bobcat, beaver, and racoons. As per fire, again, because of my low setting, the house is protected from common mountain fires that will make their way up and over my property. After the flood of 2013 we now have a beautiful water feature in a waterfall that lines the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Again, the house is located in a very protected spot. I have spent many days suntanning on my front porch December through March just because of the protection I get from my trees and surroundings. You will find the creek, fire pit, bbq grill, porch swing, bikes, fishing poles and Rocky Mountain fresh air all to be special gifts that will make your stay a paradise for romance and family fun.
