Property description

Perfect Mountain Getaway in a private community. Recent upgrades include new kitchen remodel with stainless steel appliances, new lighting fixtures, ceramic tile, new carpet, new paint, new roof, new remodeled bath. This one is CUTE,CUTE,CUTE! If you have been looking for that place to relax and escape from the stress, then look no more! Community has a lake, streams, tennis courts, pool, basketball courts, and playground.
Master bedroom is 14x10, has a very comfortable king size bed and dressers. The second bedroom (bunk room) is incredibly spacious, 17x11, and includes two sets of bunk beds and a day bed with a pull-out trundle bed (day bed and trundle bed can convert to a full). The bunk room has a large television, dvd player, plenty of dvd's, and lots of board games. This room also has a washer and dryer. The master bedroom and bunk room are opposite sides of the house and separated by the kitchen area and living room, creating privacy.
The house has a full bath with amazing water pressure in the shower. The kitchen is an eat-in kitchen with an adjoining dining room. The living room has a beautiful moss stone fireplace and looks out through two sets of sliding glass doors to an open meadow that can often be full of wandering elk. There is a large furnished front deck to enjoy drinking coffee at sunrise or a glass of wine at sunset. The small back patio has a gas grill. Right out the back door you can hike up the mountain through National Forest.
We have plenty of bikes, tennis racquets and outdoor toys to enjoy. Internet and Dish TV included. The cabin has a land line that allows you to receive long distance calls and call forwarding from your cell phone, as some cell carries do not work at the cabin.
Take a day trip to nearby Estes Park, Lyons, Boulder or Denver and return to the beauty and peace of our mountain home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a family of five with three children, ages 9-14. We absolutely love this area and it is amazing for kids!

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
Big Elk Meadows is a very private, mountain community with about 165 homes and cabins. About 1/3 of the properties are occupied year around. Big Elk is located 5 miles along rustic roads from US Highway 36 between Lyons and Estes Park, Colorado. It is surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of Roosevelt National Forest. The National Forest offers hiking, biking, mountain biking, hunting, horseback riding and lots of peace and tranquility. It is a great place for the children as the community offers a lake, 2 tennis courts, a basketball court, volleyball court, a baseball field, heated swimming pool, a picnic pavilion, and a playground. There are hiking and horse trails in many directions into the National Forest. This forest area is known as area 20 by hunters. It is the most prolific elk hunting and deer hunting in the state of Colorado. Some residents bring their horse down from the common horse pasture and ready themselves for an extended horseback ride into the National Forest. There they can hunt, enjoy fishing in a mountain lake, watch deer and elk wander near. There is some world class trout fishing in the N. Saint Vrain River, not far away. Off road vehicle enthusiasts can also enjoy the designated trails in the surrounding forest. There is a camp at Johnny Park, nearby, for ATV, four wheel drive and ORV lovers. Big Elk Meadows is about 45 minutes from Boulder Colorado, about 1.25 hours from Denver and Denver International Airport. It is about 25 minutes from Estes Park and the continental divide. Enjoy your vacation in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Our cabin is located 16 miles from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, 15 miles to Lyons, and 30 miles to Boulder.
