Property description

Off the beaten path, rustic but updated log cabin on several wooded acres, beaver ponds and spectacular views of Mt. Meeker and surrounding valley. One and 1/2 hours from Denver International Airport and fifteen minutes from Estes Park, up and into the mountains on Highway 7, towards Allenspark, Colorado.

Enjoy the amazing views from the large sun deck over morning coffee or evening cocktails. Cabin sleeps 6 comfortably, with master bedroom (king bed) and ensuite downstairs and small bedroom with daybed/twin. Roomy upstairs loft has a king bed, twin bed, 1/2 bath and opens to small deck with great views of the eastern slope. Living room, dining room with expandable table for more guests, full kitchen, microwave, laundry room with washer-dryer and satellite TV and internet. Carport for one car.

Cabin borders Rocky Mountain National Park and is close to its eastern entrances for hiking, horseback riding and outdoor activities. Several quaint restaurants in the area and a lodge that provides day passes to its gym, outdoor swimming pool, hot tub and rec room.

This is the perfect place for those who want to be close to the activities of Estes Park, but far enough away from the summer tourists and traffic to have a peaceful and private mountain getaway. Thirty minutes from Lyons, and 45 minutes from Boulder, Colorado.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Allenspark:
This cabin has been in our family for generations. On a fishing trip to Alaska, my grandfather got a call from a good friend who owned a nearby cabin who told him this cabin was for sale after forty years of ownership by the same owner since it was built in the 1930s. Grandfather loved the area so much, he bought it that day, sight unseen, over the phone, from Alaska. This is where my grandfather taught me to fly fish, where Grandmother annually cursed the hummingbirds that dive bombed her red robe during morning coffee on the great sun deck...the same hummingbirds that made me joyous as a kid when I could get more than six to land on my fingers, outstretched over the feeders. Over the years, family and friends have seen their first elk, bobcat, or even a bear and, more recently, moose near the cabin. My grandfather, who passed away in the 1980s, knew this cabin would be a place for building memories for a lot of folks, some he would never meet. He was right...and I think that would make him happy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Hands down, most everyone loves the spending time on the large sun deck with its spectacular view of Mt. Meeker. From morning coffee or a breezy brunch to afternoon reading or sunset cocktails, the deck is where everyone congregates, chats, birdwatches or simply gazes at the majestic mountain to the West. Hanging out at the beaver pond is fun for all ages and it still amazes us we can just walk out the front door and keep going all the way to the western border of Rocky Mountain National Park (not that it has ever been done since the pioneering days of local legend, Enos Mills!). It is a peaceful and private mountain getaway, close enough to the attractions of Estes Park, Lyons or Boulder, but far enough away to leave it all behind...
