Estes Park house description

This lovely home is far enough away to relax and close enough to enjoy all Estes Park and R.M.N.P. have to offer. Come relax in front of the fireplace or on the porch with a view of Longs Peak and nature's sights. Take a walk either into town or into R.M.N.P. and see all the beauty so close to your private getaway. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination in this beautiful home on 2/3's of an acre in Estes Park

As you take in the sights from the front porch you will likely see elk, deer, a wide variety of birds and other wildlife. These beautiful surroundings will beckon you to return time and again to enjoy the serene beauty of this home and its surroundings.

Inside this comfortable home you will enjoy privacy and the spectacular beauty of the Rockies while you escape the stress of day to day living. The sun-room/dining room is the perfect place to start your day, coffee in hand. At night you can relax by the fireplace or wood burning stove when the temperatures cool down. The master bedroom is located on the bottom floor while the second and third bedrooms are located upstairs.

After your stay you will agree, this is home is appropriately named 'The Joy Cabin.'

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 1994

          About: We met during our sophomore year of college at Baylor University. One month after we graduated we were married! That was 45 years, 2 kids and 7 grandchildren ago. During our time together I was a minster and my wife was a high school teacher; now we are retired. We also worked in the mission field for some time. We spent 5 months in Spain and 5 years in Kenya helping the people there and learning many valuable life lessons from them as well.

          Why Estes Park:
          “We were looking for three characteristics when we bought this 1923 vintage cabin twenty years ago…and we found them! A breath-taking view of the big mountains, a moss-rock fireplace, and an expansive covered front porch with panoramic views of Longs Peak = wow!” Located at the end of a quiet street The Joy Cabin renders privacy only 1.8 miles from downtown Estes Park. When some people come to the mountains, they want to relax… they long to spend peaceful hours being refreshed by the mountain air, observing elk and deer in the front yard along with hummingbirds and bluebirds, and hearing the breeze through the centuries old ponderosa pines on this two-thirds of an acre property. Others may enjoy hiking, biking, or climbing while many love to eat out, take in a movie or stroll down the river-walk shopping, eating caramel corn or a delicious ice cream cone! Estes Park is an ideal vacation spot to do what you enjoy. The vaulted ceiling in the sun-room/dining room of The Joy Cabin provides a sunny greeting for a first cup of coffee! The remodeled kitchen includes a front-loading washer and dryer, a stainless Kitchenaide dishwasher, and all the amenities of your home away from home. A cable 46” flat screen TV and WiFi along with a landline telephone enable you to connect with the world (if you so choose) or you may just want to lie in the hammock and read a good book; either is possible on this vacation. Two cozy bedrooms upstairs allow for privacy. The larger bedroom provides one queen bed and a trundle with two twin beds. The other bedroom contains a double bed and a pack ‘n play if necessary. The master suite on the main floor is furnished with a cedar log queen bed, a wood burning stove and its own private three-piece bathroom. A vaulted ceiling and multiple windows simply bring the outdoors inside.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Within walking distance of R.M.N.P., private setting, beautiful covered porch with mountain views, large lot, no street light to obstruct the night time views of nature.
