Estes Park cabin description
This is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom with kitchen and laundry room. It is located along the Scenic Byway known as Peak To Peak Highway at 8000 feet in the vicinity of Raymond and Allenspark, Colorado. 3 private acres are surrounded on 3 sides by State Forest, with 300 feet of the Middle Saint Vrain River in the front yard. With the windows open you will hear the river throughout the house and particularly in the bedrooms. There is a firepit outside, please bring your own firewood and observe local fire danger reports and any fire bans that may be in effect. Relax and listen to the river (it sometimes sounds like a group of people talking in the distance), or explore the immediate surroundings by hiking, bouldering, fly-fishing, etc. Activities abound in every direction.
To get to the house, you will come through Lyons, Colorado. This little town nestled at the base of the foothills has become quite popular. Among the restaurants is Oskar Blues Resaurant and Brewery, famous for Dale's Pale Ale (some say the best canned beer ever!). There are also a few Antique Shops, a pinball arcade, the Lyons Soda Fountan, and South Creek, Ltd., a noted fly-fishing shop and studio where the owner crafts custom bamboo fly rods. Planet Bluegrass, renowned for their Telluride Bluegrass Fesival, is headquartered here and the facility includes their Ranch where they put on the wildly popular Rockygrass Festival and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.
The drive to the property from Lyons will take you past Hall Ranch (mountain bike, hike, horseback, cross-country ski) and up the South Saint Vrain Canyon. Along the banks of the river you will find ample opportunities to fly-fish or rock-climb. And if you enjoy rock-climbing, the access for the Ironclads is just 1.5 miles from the house.
From the property take the Peak To Peak Highway North 22 miles to Estes Park. Along the way you will pass through Wild Basin Area (a great place to fish the North Saint Vrain), the South Entrance (back door) to Rocky Mountain National Park, the stone church at Camp Malo, Long's Peak Area (trailhead to hike/climb the 14,255' peak), fantastic close-up views of Long's Peak including the Diamond vertical approach, and Lily Lake/Twin Sisters Trailhead, among other attractions.
From the property head South on Peak To Peak for 20 miles and you will arrive in Nederland, the town just below Eldora Ski Area. In that 20 miles you will pass Peaceful Valley Dude Ranch, Camp Dick Area with access to the Buchanan Pass Trailhead, Brainard Lake Area with access to The Sourdough Trail (mountain bike, hike, horseback, cross-country ski) and Indian Peaks Widerness Area, and Caribou ghost town where exploring the old town site and 4 wheeling are favorite activities. From Nederland you can follow Boulder Creek down Boulder Canyon and arrive in, if you haven't guessed, Boulder! You can also continue South along Hwy 119 for 20 more miles to reach the casinos in Blackhawk/Central City.
There are many, many places to hike, kayak, ski, sightsee, eat, drink, fish, explore, etc. I cannot possibly mention them all. Please feel free to contact me. This is very comfortable, friendly, private place to spend an entire day, or to return to after an adventure filled day. And you can lose yourself in thought at night gazing at the amazing stars above while the river babbles right next to you.

Excellent Quality and Excellent Price
Excellent Quality and Excellent Price
Prepare to relax! Peaceful, private, and very comfortable. The sound of the water permeates the property, masking most of the highway noise. Nicely appointed with high thread count linens and plush towels. Tall traveler’s delight with high counters in the kitchen and bathroom. Large fridge; oven/range small but clean; microwave new and big, and you MUST try the grill. Well stocked paper goods, dinner/servingware, and most cooking needs. May wish to contact ahead of time if you have specific kitchen supply needs. Shower is a bit cramped, but water pressure and temperature control is outstanding. Owners are responsive and easy to work with. We will be back. Highly recommended!
