Property description

This is unlike anything else you will find on VRBO – this secluded mountain retreat is miles from the nearest neighbor completely surrounded by national forest and Rocky Mountain National Park. You will spend your entire stay and likely see no-one but the caretaker.

A completely off the grid GREEN property, this lodge has all the modern conveniences: Solar power, satellite TV, internet and radio and full coverage cell phone service. Water is fed from mountain springs at the headwaters of Fish Creek.

During the Summer, a 4WD or an SUV is required to access the property.

In the Summer, on-site horseback tours are available Tues-Thurs for a fee. Cross country guided tours are also available Mondays and Fridays for more adventurous guests. Amazing hikes are available right from the front door that take you to mountain meadows, hidden ponds, and incredible pinnacle views of Estes, Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park.
The owner lives on the property, and while you have total privacy, there is always someone available by radio to provide help and guidance when needed.

During the winter, (mid- December thru end of April). You will have easy off sight parking then transported to and from the Lodge in an 8 person snow-cat. Right out the front door will be 7 miles of groomed trails for cross country skiing/ snowshoeing. On sight snowcat tours are available.
After an exhilarating day in the wilderness, come back and cozy up to the fire in this one of a kind great room, listen to satellite music or watch the big screen and relax to the Bose entertainment system.

Accommodations include: Bedroom 1 has a Queen, Bedroom two has a Queen and a set of bunk beds. There is a full kitchen fully stocked with cookware, dinnerware, and common spices and condiments and a 6 place custom log dining room table. This is the mountain lodge of your dreams.

If you are looking for more than just a hotel stay and want to experience the Rocky Mountains like a local, this is the destination for you. Combine your stay with our on-site guided activities to create a vacation you will never forget.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I have been an outfitter for 29 years and have been in the Estes area for 35 years. This is my 'Jeremiah Johnson' dream cabin that needs to be shared. I offer summer horseback rides, fall hunting, and winter snowcat tours as well as back country snowshoe/skiing activities from this property.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
This is a one in a million piece of property right outside of Estes and totally off the grid. It is only an hour and 20 minutes from Denver International Airport.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While town is only 6 miles away, getting to and from is a true adventure in itself. I can easily go a week without seeing anyone else. Sitting on the deck in the morning with a good cup of coffee and no sound at all except the wildlife is a soul changing experience. Some days are active with every conceivable outdoor winter activity right on property, but others are curl up with a book and watch the snow fall.
