  • Amazing group getaway cabin for Labor Day weekend

    "We booked this cabin for the Labor Day,2014 weekend. Our group sought some quality nature and outdoor experience and this cabin served a great purpose to that. Nestled in the woods, one can hear the trees humming with the flowing wind and the night calmness was really soothing. It had a great combination of solitude yet close to gas station, Safeway and the Estes Park market. The booking process was very smooth and the confirmation email had all the details. The cabin itself was very well equipped for our group with enough kitchen and bathroom amenities. The kitchen had every equipment and we enjoyed cooking on the outdoor grill in the cold of night. We also spotted a dear on one morning which was a great sight. This CO trip was a first for most of us and this cabin kept us pretty close to most of the Rocky Mntn NP point of interests. Everyone was very satisfied by the stay. I will highly recommend this cabin for anyone seeking peace and quiet with easy access to worldly needs :)"

    "Nice home approx. 1 mile fron RMNP entrance. Close enough to be able to drive in for dawn & dusk animal movement. One morning we had 32 Elk on the front lawn. Home is well laid out, could use some updating, but it was spotless & well stocked. We would rent here again. Owner was great to deal with."

  • Downright Perfect.

    "My wife and I, who have explored nearly every nook and cranny of Colorado, decided to do a last minute getaway and relax up in the mountains before the holiday rush. Could not have asked for a better location that is easily accessible from Denver; that is secluded and quiet; that provides intimate interaction with nature; feels like a clean, comfortable and cozy relative's vacation home (as someone else noted in their review); and has what you need for pretty much doing nothing or serving as a launching pad for mountain exploration and adventure in Roosevelt National Forest or Rocky Mountain National Park. The chalet is as advertised and the reviews are accurate, with 5 stars deserved. There are hikes close by; it is close enough but far enough from civilization in Estes Park; and there is excellent nature watching. Was a little chilly for us for hiking, especially since we did not pack the right equipment, but we set our goals on relaxing and certainly achieved them. The hot tub was great. A couple deer pleasantly surprised us just as we got out. Lots of birds and more deer, including a pretty big buck with a nice rack. Debi told us there was a bobcat hanging around the day before we came, so you know you are in a good spot for nature. Saw some big horn sheep down in Estes on 34 / Wonderview / Fall River Road and had a nice brunch at Claire's in town. Bring some food, wine and bathing suits and you are set for a nice, relaxing and/or romantic getaway and do not even need to leave the property. Thanks for letting us use your place! A return trip will more than likely happen."

Estes Park Travel Tips

At the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in Colorado thanks to stunning mountain vistas and a charming downtown. Situated 7,522 feet above sea level, the entire area is home to breathtaking views, incredible natural scenery and plenty of skiing and hiking adventures to be had. The town itself has the feel of a quaint mountain village yet allows for a range of phenomenal cuisine and culture in the middle of an outdoorsman's paradise. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a memorable family vacation or just isolation from the fast pace of the city for a few days, Estes Park is the perfect destination.

Estes Park Attractions

Known by many as the gate to Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is a veritable treasure trove of activities based around its immense natural beauty. Featuring guided tours, world class camping, great hiking and an absolutely endless supply of beautiful backdrops for family photographs, Estes Park is perfect for those who appreciate the great outdoors. The four trailheads accessible from the town offer fantastic access to the local hiking trails and phenomenal ski slopes, as well.

Within Rocky Mountain National Park alone there are over 100 separate peaks that rise above the height of 11,000 feet. As a result, Estes Park has become a prime destination for climbers and backpackers from across the globe. Strap into a harness, don't forget the crampons and scale some incredible rock faces or, if you're looking for a slightly more tame experience, take some of the winding backpacking trails to the top of these beautiful peaks. Since many of these peaks run directly along the continental divide, climbers can take in the unforgettable sight of watching snow begin its long journey either east to the Atlantic or west to the Pacific.

Estes Park Things to Do

If you're visiting Estes Park in either the spring, summer or autumn, then you'll want to take part in the fantastic trail running scene. While the city does offer a variety of trails that cater to all skill levels, some of the most beautiful scenery is found on two of the more challenging routes, Black Lake Trail and Lumpy Ridge Loop. While the former is an intermediate, 9.6-mile trail, Lumpy Ridge Loop runs for over 10 miles and features a nearly 3-mile change in elevation from start to finish. Black Lake Trail is recommended for those desiring water-centric viewpoints, as it passes by two lakes and a series of waterfalls. Lumpy Ridge, considering its changes in elevation, caters more to those looking to view the world from above as they pass through mountainous ridges and rugged terrain.

Of course, some people will prefer to experience the beauty of Estes Park from the valley below. Since its official sanctioning by the United States government nearly a century ago, Rocky Mountain National Park has served as a habitat to both domesticated and wild horses. A variety of options are available through the park for horseback riders of all levels, including day trips and backcountry horse camping sponsored by the National Parks Office. Those who would prefer to be a bit more independent can set off alone and will find over 260 miles of beautiful wilderness trails for their enjoyment. Both Thunder Lake Trail and Finch Lakes Trail are popular among vacationers and locals. These trails are accessible from the Wild Basin Trailhead, which is easily found from multiple park entrances.
