Property description

Enjoy your vacation at our peaceful home on the Big Thompson River, just a short walk from Rocky Mountain National Park. You'll have access to 12 acres of shared wooded grounds, a playground and picnic area with fire ring, plus a quarter-mile of private river frontage!

Our home is light, bright, and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and lots of windows to enjoy the views. The Wind River cabin is fifty yards from the river and offers mountain views as well.

On the main level you'll find a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a comfortable living room where you can watch cable TV or build a fire in the moss rock fireplace. This level has BEDROOM 1, with a king bed and adjoining full bathroom.

Upstairs are Bedrooms 2 and 3, both with vaulted ceilings for a spacious feel. Both bedrooms have doors to a connecting bathroom with double sinks and an oversized walk-in shower. BEDROOM 2 has a queen bed and views of Eagle Cliff Mountain. BEDROOM 3 is quite large and decorated with a bear theme. It can sleep up to four in one queen bed, one twin bed, and a twin-size trundle that pulls out from under the twin bed. The trundle is a great option for young children who aren't quite ready for a 'big bed.' This room has its own TV with DVD player. We also have a booster high chair and pack-and-play available for your use.

What's a day like at the Wind River cabin? Start with morning coffee on the deck as you watch the hummingbirds. Then put on your hiking shoes and walk along the river and into Rocky Mountain National Park. A short walk takes you to Moraine Park, one of the prime wildlife viewing areas in the national park. In summer, you can avoid traffic altogether – walk 1 mile to the Moraine Park Museum, catch the shuttle bus, and ride to any trailhead on Bear Lake Road.

If you fish, you'll enjoy the quarter-mile of private river frontage just steps away. Cook up your trout on the grill and dine outside at the picnic table on the deck. Our kitchen has bakeware, pots and pans, and a full complement of utensils. When you don't feel like cooking, you can walk across the street to the Dunraven Inn, a family-friendly Italian restaurant. Or, downtown Estes Park is only 2.5 miles away.

Stay at least a week if you can – you'll find lots to do. Thanks for visiting us. We look forward to hearing from you!

ANSWERS TO FAQs ABOUT OUR HOUSE AND LOCATION:
We affectionately call our home the 'Wind River Cabin,' but it is a fully modern house built in 1998. It is one of about 25 houses in a small, covenant-protected community spread across 12 private acres. As our guest you have full access to the shared grounds, including the large picnic area and playground by the river, volleyball and horseshoes. We do have neighboring homes on either side, about 30 feet away, but NO homes in front of or behind our house. We have incredible views! Our home sits up above the Big Thompson River, and your view down to the river is unobstructed except for a few beautiful Ponderosa pine trees. You can see and hear the river from almost every window in the house, and it is a very short walk to the water. You can fish on the property. Our community is a mix of vacation rentals, second homes, and full-time residences. The location is private and quiet yet only a 5-minute drive to town. Our deck has an outdoor grill. There is no hot tub.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: This is not just a rental property, it's our second home, and because we live nearby we can ensure that our home is always in top condition for our guests. After a long search we found the perfect blend of wilderness and convenience, adventure and amenities. We enjoy sharing with our guests what we love about this special place.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
We can walk out our front door and sit by the water, or stroll up the river to watch elk and other wildlife - no car needed! Nearby trails take us to some of the wildest and most scenic areas in the country, yet we can walk to a restaurant or drive to town in less than 5 minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love sitting on the deck and looking down to the river and up to great views of Colorado's snow-capped peaks! Inside, we've completely updated all furnishings and decor to provide the best vacation getaway for our guests.
