About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If you are planning to spend time in the amazing Rocky Mountains, our home is the best of all worlds. The gorgeous views, comfortable amenities and quiet location near town provide everything you need to relax after a long day hiking, cross-country skiing, fishing, climbing, sightseeing or wildlife-viewing. We are just a 20 minute walk to Mary’s Lake Lodge for great entertainment and dining. The property is surrounded by beautiful snow-capped peaks and plenty of blue skies and bright stars. You can sit outside on the expansive deck and enjoy watching wildlife passing by or shooting stars in the cool summer evenings.

Our home is complete with lovely furnishings, comfortable pillow-topped king beds in two of the bedrooms and set of twins in the third bedroom. From the bedroom windows you can often see deer and elk coming down from the Roosevelt forest as you wake in the morning. Since our dining room and den is completely surrounded by picture windows, dinners are complemented with sunset views of Lumpy Ridge, the snow-capped Mummy Range and the beautiful Estes Valley, as well as frequent visits from hummingbirds, blue birds, elk, deer, rabbits and occasional bear, coyote or mountain lion (very rare).

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare even the most complex meal. You will also find a propane grill just out the back door for a warm summer barbeque along with a huge deck; perfect for an outdoor picnic.

About Karen Hare

We love the beautiful Rocky Mountains anytime of year. Bob loves to fly fish. We both love hiking, cross-country skiing and just enjoying sitting by an alpine lake reading a book. When the opportunity came for us to purchase our own piece of paradise, we couldn't resist. We loved every moment we spent renovating this lovely cabin that was originally located in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Karen Hare purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Karen Hare chose Front Range

When we found this cabin, we knew it would be the perfect home for us. It needed a bit of work, but the mountain views from the picture windows and deck sold us on the home. The quiet location in a private treed neighborhood sealed the deal. Being close to the activities of Estes Park without any of the hustle and bustle was exactly what we were looking for. Wildlife roam through the property regularly and often decide to stay for a while. The cabin itself is spacious and with the hardwood floors and beautiful warm decor, we can't imagine we could have found a more perfect home for us to enjoy and share with our guests.

What makes this cabin unique

We love waking to deer, elk, wild turkeys, and/or hummingbirds outside our bedroom window, then sitting out on the deck for breakfast breathing in the fresh mountain air. Typically, we head out for a hike to an alpine lake early so we can get back to enjoy a relaxed BBQ on the deck. Later we might spend the evening watching for shooting stars while we build a small campfire in the fire pit and maybe roast a few marshmallows. It is our place to relax and get away to the quite solitude that nature has to offer, yet still have all the comforts of home.

What a wonderful place to relax and have some quality family time! Our family, with kids ranging 13-2, fit perfectly. The house has almost everything you need. We felt very cared for.

Lovely cabin - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in a perfect location - minutes from RMNP in one direction and Estes Park in the other. The cabin has all the necessities as well as amenities desired. The beds are SO comfortable - best night's sleep away from home ever! We saw mule deer and turkeys every day and the views are excellent. You will not be disappointed!

Very clean, inviting and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to downtown shops and Estes Park entrance yet private and out of the tourist traffic. Loved that Karen called us when we made the reservation. Great personal touch which made us feel welcomed before we ever got there.

Beautiful & Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at the cabin! It was cozy, clean and has wonderful views! There was a lot of wildlife that wandered through the property. The cabin had everything we could possibly need. It is close to downtown and Rocky Mountain National Park, but tucked away in a quiet and peaceful area. Karen is a very nice and responsive host. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!

Peaceful cabin with a view

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect base for our Rocky Mountain adventures. As others have said, the photos do not do justice to this homey, comfortable cabin. We felt away from it all, yet in reality, we were only minutes from the center of Estes Park and the Beaver Meadows entrance of RMNP. The neighborhood is very quiet, and we enjoyed the visits from the turkeys and mule deer. The large windows over the front deck provide a restful view of the Lumpy Ridge The Hares are wonderful, responsive hosts and have created a comfortable, well-equipped get-away. I hope to return to this lovely cabin.

Very nice cabin in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family - 2 adults and 3 teenage children. Plenty of room for everyone. Nice cabin in a beautiful location. We really liked the full sunroom; when we weren't out hiking or exploring, that's where we stayed. Thanks so much for a great stay.
