  • always great!

    "This is our second time staying at the little Brown cabin, it was just as great as the first! Is always so clean and well kept. We loved the addition of wifi! Again, we had multiple wildlife "friends" come and visit, making it extra special for our daughter (who has named one of the mule deer Geoffrey :) the location is also perfect, close enough to downtown but far enough away to feel tenor and just mere minutes from RMNP."

  • A great weekend.

    "The cabin was very affordable and Very clean and we'll managed. It was very well stocked-had everything we needed. It was also the cleanest cabin I've ever rented. It did not have that musty damp cAbin feel. We were very pleased and look forward to rent this or another of Diana's properties again."

  • Wonderful location - beautiful stunning home

    "My husband and I stayed here with our twin girls who are 3 1/2 along with my parents. This place was simply perfect. The location was quick to town and quick to Beaver Meadows entrance station. On Thanksgiving morning we had Elk in our back yard and across the river; it was the perfect morning. Out our living room windows and bedroom windows we have the most beautiful view of the mountains. I couldn't have asked for a more accommodating home. Furnishings were the nicest I've had and spotless! We will definitely stay here again. Thanks for the most wonderful stay."

    "Great location, with easy way to go around Estes Park to get to Rocky Mountain National Park without going through town during the busy season. The house is comfortable, with all household items needed provided. Great views through wall of windows."

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.
