Estes Park cabin description

Granny's House is a cozy 2 bdrm cabin in a secluded, quiet location with a true feeling of being surrounded by forest. Visited and loved by many, Granny's House, in the little town of Allenspark is just a 5-minute drive to the Wild Basin entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Forest and only a 20-25 minute scenic drive along the peak to peak highway to downtown Estes Park. You only need to read the guest comments to see how much visitors love the house and all the little extras provided.

Here's an example: “Kathy & Gene, Thank you for opening “Granny’s House” to us. We felt at home from the minute we walked in. Between enjoying the hikes and wildlife (elk, deer, etc.) of the National Park, we found time to go see the Colorado Rockies baseball team. All we can say is this has been a great vacation for our family and staying near Allenspark is the “frosting on the cake.” Thank you. ” Paul, Dinise & Amber, Oregon, WI. 7/17-22/2008

Guest Comments: “Kathy & Gene, Thanks so much for a wonderful place to stay. It was very quiet & peaceful. It took some time to adjust to the elevation. We were always thirsty and did not sleep well at first. The last few days were much better. After cooking on the grill, a large black bear showed up and we were very excited. We made a sound with the back door and he went running. We never saw him again. It was very exciting! We were cautious for a while, but realized we must have scared him more than he scared us. The hiking was great and we will never forget our trip!” Don, Peg & Alisha, Seminole, FL. 6/18-25/2008.

“Kathy & Gene, we had such a wonderful week at your cabin. It was so quiet, cozy & peaceful. We really enjoyed being away from the crowds. The kids loved your selection of games & movies! Thanks again for letting us stay here. We hope to be back in a few years! ” Omaha, NE. 7/24-31/2008

More Guest Comments: “Kathy and Gene, Thank you for making Granny’s House such a cozy, well-appointed place to stay. We loved the fireplace, the deck, the grill, movies at the end of the day. We ran into a lot of snow at Brainerd Lake and could not even hike to Isabelle so we took the St. Vrain Trail which was nice. The next day we were enchanted by Bear Lake, Nymph Lake, Dream & Emerald Lakes. Saw elk very near to trail at Dream Lake as well as Clark’s Nutcrackers and a water ouzel. Today we hike the Fern Lake Trail and saw more elk (a herd of 30 females & young), hummingbirds, bluebirds & a scarlet tanager. Also trout leaping at the pool! Granny’s House was perfect for us. The drive to the park was lovely. I wonder if you’d consider putting wildflower and bird identification guides in the cabin? We had so many questions that the volunteers at RMNP could not answer. Aloha! ” Kendal, John, Hannah & Justin, Hilo, HI. 6/26-30/2008

More Guest Comments: “Thanks for everything! ” Cindy, Longmont, CO. 7/31-8/3/2008 “Once again, thank you Kathy & Gene. Our stay was everything we expected and then some. We love this house; it’s as if it’s an extension of our own home in Illinois. After a few ”acclimating” hikes we hiked to Lake Chasm–spectacular. A little challenging but oh the reward is so worth it! Thank you for your suggestion to hike to Lulu City on the West Side–it was very serene & pleasant without too many visitors. We saw a variety of wildlife including Mr. Black Bear who made a cameo appearance–that was exciting for us! We made new friends (John & Lois) who we anticipate keeping in touch with. All of the above was made possible by your hospitality & generosity. All our love. ” Pam & Kevin, Elwood, IL. 8/3-17/ 2008

                  Granny's House is in the quaint little town of Allenspark Colorado which sits at the national park's southeast corner, along the breathtaking Peak-to-Peak Highway. The highways itself is 55 miles of curves and scenery rivaling the postcards from Estes Park, 12 miles to the North. Established in 1918, this scenic town shows the way to some of Colorado's most famous and beautiful areas. Chief among these is the craggy, 14,255-foot Longs Peak, as well as Rocky Mountain National Park, host to alpine vistas, glacial basins and 3 million visitors annually. In addition to visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, visitors enjoy horseback riding at many nearby stables. Fishing during summer months, and cross-country skiing in the winter makes the town an attractive year-round destination. While peak tourist season occurs during the summer months, this town's hiking trails, located at an altitude of 8,521 feet, provide wonderful views of the changing aspen trees in autumn.
