Allenspark cabin description

Willow Creek Cabin is a privately owned log-sided home in the little town of Allenspark, Co, just 5 minutes from the Wild Basin Entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and only 15 miles from downtown Estes Park. After a long day of hiking or biking, sightseeing, fishing or golfing, relax on the private deck that straddles Willow Creek or fire up the propane gas grill with suspended steam rack and side burner for a tasty meal made more scrumptious by the clean mountain air. When it gets chilly go inside and put your feet up and read a book next to the fire in the native stone wood-burning fireplace. Or play one of the extensive of variety of family games we provide.

This house will sleep 6 people comfortably. All bedding and linens are provided and the kitchen is fully stocked and has a self-cleaning oven.

Come play in the Rockies and stay at Willow Creek!

A sampling of comments taken from our guest books : 'We had a lovely time at your cabin. We played Taboo and Scrabble and Chess around the table, enjoyed the hummingbirds and met the ranger down the road who chatted with my sister, the bird watcher, had lovely times on the deck, and looked for shooting stars. Allenspark was a wonderful setting off point to the Park. Thank you for sharing your cabin. We happened upon weather that was most beautiful.” Eric

“Vicki & Gordon - Our week is nearly up and we're wishing we could stay longer! The weather's been perfect and we've enjoyed staying at your cabin in the peace and quiet of Allenspark. We've made some hikes . . . it's [Rocky Mountain National Park] a great park for hiking. We especially enjoyed the Moraine Park area. In fact, we've been impressed with the generally 'unsullied' appearance of the Park. Thanks!” Ona & Roger I., Sioux City, IA, - P.S. Enjoyed some of your books, i.e. Ogden Nash, Willa Cather, etc. Our tastes are similar.

More guest comments: “Thanks for allowing us to stay at your rustic mountain cabin. We really enjoyed our stay in the Rocky Mts! The bubbling brook by the cabin gave that extra special peaceful touch to our stay. We really loved the Allenspark Community Church. It was a blessing to sing the hymns of faith and hear a message out of God's Word by Pastor Rex Roth. Our first hike was up to Ouzel Falls. Beautiful. We loved the Old Trail Road up to the top of the mountain. We experienced a thunderstorm with rain, snow, and hail. We saw Grand Lake with the quaint shops. We hiked to Bear Lake, Cub Lake, and many others. What pleasant weather . . . cool! We saw many elk, hawk, squirrels, rabbits, jays, chipmunks, pikas, etc. Hope to visit up here again in the future.” Merl & Nancy, & daughter Julie - 30th Anniversary and family trip,

Yet More Guest Comments: “For our stay, Willow Creek Cabin was base camp for a July 30th ascent of Long's Peak. Three of us are 50+ high school friends seeking to re-kindle the flames of youth and adventure. We successfully climbed the peak and walked the long way back to the Long's Peak trailhead. Two sons, Stephen and John, joined us on the climb along with Christie. All of them performed commendably under strenuous circumstances. The red Tibetan prayer flag that we hung on the deck was divided among them as a memento of their first climb of Long's. . . . Our climb lifted our spirits in the grandeur of nature. Life is good.” David, Topeka, KS, (a regular guest of Willow Creek Cabin)
“Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful cabin. This would have been the perfect writer's retreat had the photographer and adventurer in me not come out! Your cabin was a wonderful home base & it's so centrally located! . . . If I ever return to Colorado, I will definitely check here first.” Tasha

                      Willow Creek Cabin is in the lovely 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.
