"We just recently returned from a 9 day trip to RMNP and spent the first 6 nights at Greenbrook while we day hiked all over the east side of the park. I had debated staying in Estes Park, but after leaving our quiet little spot in Allenspark and driving through the crowded Estes Park streets, I'm so GLAD we stayed at Greenbrook!!! We drove the 10 minutes to the Wild Basin area for several hikes there (I HIGHLY recommend the Lion Lake trail) and also took at short stroll on the Mt. St. Vrain trail right down the road (and up another dirt one) from Allenspark.
One night my husband and I left our teenagers to fend for themselves and splurged on dinner at The Fawn Brook Inn, practically across the street from the cabin. The food and atmosphere was superb but the hummingbirds buzzing throughout the flowers in the front made the evening even more unique. We felt like we were in some kind of enchanted garden. 😉
Our daughter stayed in the second bedroom and our 14yr old took the loft where he had PLENTY of room. Two middle school aged kids could easily sleep in that space....or even 3 grade school kids (as long as one didn't roll around a lot). While he couldn't stand up completely to change clothes, he had plenty of space to stretch out. The other two bedrooms were private and quiet - as was the whole cabin. We could catch glimpses of other homes through the trees but still felt completely alone in the woods with a babbling brook nearby.
The drive into Estes Park and the Beaver Meadows entrance took about 20-30 minutes. If you're traveling in the summer I would recommend early starts to those more popular trails. Parking is usually full by 9am, but by driving early in the morning we not only avoided traffic on the roads, but we were also treated to bear, moose and multiple elk sightings.
Greenbrook was clean, comfortable and stocked with all the necessities to cook a good meal after a day on the trails. A binder is provided with additional information about the area. I'm glad we were mindful of the instructions to not keep groceries in the car. One morning there were large bear prints outside and an overturned (but safety locked) garbage can. While I know it's a minor annoyance for people who live in Allenspark, for us it just added to our fabulous adventure!!
I would recommend this cabin to a friend and we would definitely stay here again!!!"

"We've stayed in the cabin twice -- August 2014 and August 2015. Both stays were fantastic. The cabin area is beautiful and private. The cabin is comfortable and well-equipped and good-sized. Debbie has been responsive to our contacts and easy to work with. We enjoyed the local "things to do" such as climb Castle Rock, visit the chapel, visit the ranch and watch the horses and the marmots, and visit the campground and play in the river there.
There are so many beautiful hikes only 10-15 minutes away. We hiked the St Vrain trail last year and it was quite rigorous, but had some wonderful views into RMNP. We, of course, hiked in RMNP park as well, with Wild Basin area only about 20 minutes away and Bear Lake area about 45 minutes. The Brainard Lake area south of the cabin is even closer and has hikes that are just as good as RMNP with fewer people. We hiked to Isabelle Glacier and Blue Lake.
We expect we will stay in the cabin again when we are in the area."

"This cabin was a little slice of heaven. Our family of three (including 9 yr old child) stayed for 5 nights and though we hiked and explored every day, we would have been just as happy (maybe happier) staying at the cabin all day. The views are spectacular! The cabin was very well appointed with cooking utensils & spices. The hummingbirds are AWESOME! We loved feeling them whiz by our head when we were outside or watching them from comfy chairs inside. The little chipmunk family and bunnies were also fun to watch. It felt like such a special and authentic experience from within the huge stacks of logs or sitting on the porch taking in the glorious views. The ping pong table, games, instruments and art supplies were a fun bonus. It seemed every nook and cranny was stuffed with entertainment. I almost wanted it to rain so we could stay inside in front of the fire. We will most definitely be back and will forward this place to friends and family. We feel so appreciative to have found this hideaway and so blessed that the owners share this place!"

"We wanted a relaxing anniversary weekend and that was just what we had! The cabin is wonderful, with everything you need. The wood burning stove works very well-we made a nice fire in it the first night and slept very warm. We scaled back on the fire the next nights and slept well. There was lots of snow on the ground and we had lots fall the first day so it was just beautiful. This area is just so pretty! We went into Estes Park and also the Nederlands, took some nice walks and just relaxed at the cabin. I feel like we perfected the art of laziness, which was just what we were hoping to accomplish. It was a great weekend!"
