Decorated with Pink Flamingo and Cockatoo Turner prints like Aunt Kate had.

2. COZY COVERED FRONT PORCH overlooks Old Man Mountain, Long's Peak, The Beaver, along with other peaks and the Continental Divide. Porch has 2 high back rockers, and patio table for two. The three more outdoor seating areas and a hammock give guests lots of choices to read, sun, and relax.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Born in North Dakota, lived in Minnesota, South Dakota, and then Lincoln, Nebraska where I graduated from Union College in 1963. Taught 1 year at Union College in the Business Dept, and 2 years at Glendale Union Academy in Glendale, CA. Married a pilot who became a cropduster, and then we lived in Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Longmont, CO, Fort Collins, CO (flew off of what is now Kechter Road right in the southeast part of town)Steamboat, CO where we were ski bums and wintered, and presently in Greeley, CO and a Realtor for 33 yrs. Two grown sons, Hans & Jack, live in Washington. Built a log home in 1980 in the desirable and coveted Glenmere Park area - so have the mountain feeling while living in Greeley.

              Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
              Love the mountains. Estes Park is especially breathtaking. It is only 1 hour from my doorstep. Was driving around one day before joining friends in Glen Haven for dinner, and came across this cabin for sale that I knew was just for me, a 1935 vintage cabin with wonderful bones and a covered porch with awesome views of Longs Peak and only a mile from downtown and yet very set apart, quiet and secluded that needed a ton of updating and redecorating. Peeked in the windows and decided there had to be hardwood floors under the ugly carpet, called the owner, scared myself silly by doing a reverse 1031 Exchange with a duplex I owned in Steamboat, and living happily everafter. Motto: "Destined to be an old woman with no regrets".

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Lounging in the hammocks. Cooking on the outdoor grill. Watching and feeding the hummingbirds. Coming home one day at noon and finding 3 policeman at the property scaring off a bear that attempted to enter through the back screen. Watching a mother elk right after giving birth to her baby just steps from the back door of the cabana. Watched them all day long. Watching a bull elk guard his harem of 10 all day one Saturday just outside the covered porch with friends from Greeley. Watching coyotes and red fox cross the yard. Love the big blue jays. Have white lights up in the crabapple tree that shed the most beautiful pink glow over the tables in the courtyard. Having dinners with guests that invite me up and getting to know them. Having a guest enjoy getting engaged on the front porch, or having a wedding reception at the cabin, and the young families that so enjoy the property. Had a fantastic family reunion with 100% participation - 36 of us from all over the US. Live music, catered food, oh my! Taking a nap on the iron bed on the front porch. Reading a book with a fire roaring and the smell of logs burning in the white brick fireplace. Loud music when I am alone. Snowfalls are so majical. The most cozy and wonderful dining room with place settings, transferware, and candlelight! So enjoy hanging the wash on the clothesline in the sun and the fresh clean linen smell when folding.
