Property description

A great little original Estes Park cabin from 1910. Of course all updates have been added , but it still has the
'Back in the day ' charm. The interior is mostly all log, has a new kitchen, 3 bedrooms (one queen , full, twin ) back covered porch and private hot tub with a roof over for privacy. We are only 2.5 miles from downtown Estes Park on US 34, 100 feet from the river (NOTE !!! NEAR THE RIVER NOT ON OR TOUCHING THE RIVER, ) with great fishing, catch and release only. Incredible rock outcroppings in the back yard.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My daughter and I moved from MN almost 18 yrs ago. We lived in a tiny 650 sq foot cabin where I still live today with my husband Kevin. Married 3 yrs ago. He is so very talented at building. It works well because I have all these idea's and he just makes them for me !! We did loose an entire property in the 2013 flood. We were so very devastated. Everything we had worked on for 10 yrs was gone. Not even the land was left. We began working on what we had left and trying to be thankful we still had our little cabin ' HOME ' I have 3 children, grown and gone, but now spend almost everyday taking care of my grand kids shown above. I enjoy playing music and singing. I play bass guitar, acoustic, and a little piano. Have been in bands for 28 yrs .Kevin enjoys building which is a great thing !!

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
I bought this property because so many other people were doing the vacation rentals here. I just knew I would love this, and still do very much !
