Estes Park cabin description

We have more than one cabin and that is why we do not keep up the calendar. You can go to our website at www.lrtaylorcabins.com and then go to the rates page and click on the 'Book Online' tab in the middle, top of the page to see our availability calendar. Convenience is what you get with Mabel's Cabin at L.R. Taylor's Estes Park Cabins. Mabel's is located on a hill just above the downtown of Estes Park with private steps leading to the center of town. But get away from it all on your private, covered deck and enjoy the view of Longs Peak and the mountain range. So park your car and walk to restaurants and shopping. Mabel's is also just minutes away from the famous Rocky Mountain National Park. 2.5 miles to Beaver Meadows Visitor Center. 4 miles to Fall Creek Entrance. (so enjoy all that it has to offer)

Originally built in the early 1900's by Mabel Van Hook, one of the four children of L.R. Taylor, to be her summer home and vacation spot. The cabin has been renovated to include all the modern conveniences, but still retains some of it's original charm.

Mabel's has a beautiful space outdoors to roam with trees, rock out-croppings, deer, elk and chipmunks. The elk have their own path right beside the cabin and enjoy resting under the trees.

Estes Park is the perfect vacation spot and there is something to do for everyone. You can rent this cabin year-round and enjoy the seasons of Colorado. We also have 4 other cabins next door if this one is occupied, all of which are part of LR Taylor Cabins. You can see our availability calendar by going to the rates page on our website at www.lrtaylorcabins.com and clicking on 'Book Online' at the top of the page. We do not keep up this calendar because we have other cabins as well.

              Nearest Restaurant
              walk to eat, no need for car.

              Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park have too many activities to mention. You need to spend at least a week to to even experience a part of all there is to offer. In the winter there is snow-shoeing(in the park), ice skating(in town) and downhill skiing (an hour away). In the summer there are scenic drives, hiking, back packing, Estes Park's River Walk, rodeos, music venues, art galleries, fly fishing, horseback riding, white water rafting, bicycling, wildlife viewing, festivals and much, much more. The spring and fall are beautiful, also. The fall, especially, with the aspen trees turning and the elk mating season, with their bugling. We also have great shopping and restaurants. However, in our cabins you can relax on your private deck and enjoy your coffee, wine, beer or dinner. Our cabins will be your home away from home.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: This cabin was sold out of the family for quite a few years. We were lucky enough to purchase it so that it is back in the family. I have been coming to Estes Park for vacations since I was a toddler. I never tire of it's beauty and endless changing scenery. I hope you can build the same memories at our little heaven on earth.

              Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
              Mabel's Cabin is one of 6 cabins with LR Taylor Cabins. My great, great Grandfather came to Estes in 1911 to start building his vacation home, along with his wife and 4 children. He died shortly thereafter, but his children each built their own cabin. Luckily, we were able to buy the ones that had left the family. The cabin we stay in has never left the family and has been passed on through the generations. Nell's Cabin was not in our family, but we bought it because of it's proximity. Each of the cabins has old photos of the family and Estes Park. Come enjoy the history.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              This cabin has a perfect location in a private neighborhood. You can relax on the deck and enjoy the surroundings, watch the wildlife, walk downtown for food or shopping, or drive a short way to get to Rocky National Park. It is the best!
