When you are ready to hit the shops, galleries and restaurants, you are only a five minute drive away from the bustle of Elkhorn Avenue in Estes Park, which boasts more that 300 shops displaying treasures from around the world, the region, and the village.
The whole family will be happy to know that when you are staying at the Bear Paw, you are only a mile away from Go-Carts, Bumper-boats, Mini-golf, horseback riding stables and a Rock-climbing gym. A 9 & 18-hole golf course and the Lake Estes Marina are also between the cabin and the town of Estes Park within 2-3 miles.
If you choose to hit nature at its finest, visit the Rocky Mountain National Park. The Bear Paw is only 10-15 minutes away from either Park entrance. Sixty peaks rising above 12,000 feet and up to 14,260 feet, can be seen within the Park. When visiting between Memorial Day and late autumn, many of these peaks dotted with pristine lakes can be seen by driving over the Continental Divide by Trail Ridge Road. Topping out at 12,183 feet, this is the highest, continuous, paved road in the United States.
Bring your hiking shoes! There are over 359 miles of trail that offer endless opportunities to hikers, backpackers and horseback riders. If you choose to visit us in the WINTER, the Bear Paw is snug and warm while you explore the activities of Estes Park and the RMNP.
During the winter, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing abounds in the white-blanketed tranquility of the meadows and forests. Try out the sledding and tubing hill in the Park. All sporting equipment can be rented through many outfitters in town.
The Estes Park and RMNP areas are beautiful all year round, with different festivities going on each weekend. Always sunny and clear, warm days with cool nights make staying in the Bear Paw cabin especially great. Turn on the gas fire place and relax watching a movie or reading a book. In any season, Estes Park can offer a variety of things to do.
Watching wildlife is one of the town's major attractions. Elk, mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, black bears, coyotes, cougars, eagles, hawks, and scores of smaller animals delight wildlife-watchers of all ages. Many elk, deer, and sheep travel the canyon and can be seen on the slope across the river and even walking in front of the cabin. Neighbors living in the area also have reported sightings of bear and moose.
Wildflower-lovers are never disappointed in June and July when the meadows and hillsides are splashed with botanical color. A hike up the boulders in the back of the Bear Paw in early summer will yield a lovely display of blooming cactus and a view of the canyon you will never forget!
Come to the 'Bear Paw' and RELAX on the RIVER in the ROCKIES!
(We ask, if you smoke, please smoke outside, our cabin is a NON-SMOKING property. And sorry, NO PETS.)

About the owner: We live in Minnesota and spend as much time in Estes Park, CO as we can - Although we run a family business, we always find time to fly to Colorado and enjoy our family cabin. Our plans are to retire soon and move to Estes Park and run our one-cabin vacation rental business as a hobby.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park: We chose Estes Park as our home away from home, so why not let others enjoy the beauty of the area while staying in our vacation rental.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The Big Thompson Canyon is one of true beauty. Huge boulder walls, the Big Thompson River and frequent wildlife makeup the awesome backdrop of our cabin. We are close to town and the RMNP - a wonderful place to be in the mountains. 'RELAX on the RIVER in the ROCKIES' is our motto and certainly fitting!
