Estes Park cabin description

Taking Reservations NOW for stays starting June 1, 2014 - Due to the September 12, 2013 flood in the Big Thompson Canyon, the river banks and roads were damaged. Driveway access has been restored, however the river route and banks are continuing to be restored through 2014. - Come to Estes Park and enjoy a vacation in the Rocky Mountain National Park while staying in the comfort of the Bear Paw Cabin on the River! If you are planning a vacation, we have some 'Specials' for you 'ASK FOR OUR COUPLES DISCOUNT' on a one week stay - on standard rates. We will discount a weekly rate $25! for a party of TWO!! Check our website for additional rate reductions for off-season stays!

FLY-FISHING on Private Waters of the Bear Paw Cabin on the Big Thompson River is the best fishing around! We will set you up with fly-fishing lessons with Kirk's Fly Shop, Estes Angler in town or Sasquash Fly-Fishing from the YMCA! (Links to both on our cabin website.) Or try it on your own, our neighbors are always willing to share their secrets in fishing the river frontage.

Nestled directly into the canyon rock wall, the Bear Paw Cabin on the River is only a step away from the Big Thompson River. We are open all year. Rent 2 nights to a week or month. Located only three miles from Estes Park, in the beautiful Big Thompson Canyon. You can relax in the canyon, listen to the river, hike the scenic backdrop, grill a steak and relax on the patio, have a campfire on the river and enjoy our river swings. Now is the time to start planning your get-away.

This spacious, one-bedroom cabin has a queen-size bed, with an newly remodeled bathroom and shower. There are two futon sofas for extra sleeping space. All linens, pillows, towels, etc. are furnished. Our cabin is VERY suitable for one couple or couple with 2 children.



The Bear Paw has a clean, fully equipped kitchen and dining area with everything you will need away from home. Wood and ceramic floors adorn this unique cabin complete with a sunroom area that soaks in the southern warmth of the canyon. Lots of windows to watch the world and river go by as you have your morning coffee! Outside, is a nice patio tucked under the huge boulders behind the Bear Paw. This patio has a gas grill, lots of seating and an unbelieveable view of the river. Stroll along the river and watch the trout jump! There is a rock patio on the river with a swing and sitting area for your use.

There is a great livingroom/entertainment area with a free-standing gas fireplace for the cool evenings. This area is equipped with SATELITTE/DISH TV, VCR/DVD player, bookshelf stocked with books, games, videos, and DVD's for your use. Don't forget to try your hand at some catch & release fly-fishing; we also include, for your convenience a cooler, flashlight, and first-aid kit for your use.

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.)

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  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!
