Welcome to Whispering Pines Cabin! Estes Valley Operating Permit #3175- a licensed vacation rental property.
Come relax and enjoy our historic 1928 vintage Estes Park home, a charming rental retreat only 3 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park (and right across the road from the Big Thompson river), which was built with integrity and beautiful craftsmanship that has been maintained throughout the years.
Here you will find Old Estes charm, updated with comfortable mattresses and today's amenities in the quaint mountain town of Estes Park. While the cabin offers all the amenities of a modern comfortable home, there has been a concerted effort in its restoration to retain the look and feel of this wonderful property.
Nestled among aspen and ponderosa pine trees, some of which are hundreds of years old, you will be on 1 1/2 acres with mountain views and rock outcroppings contributing to the sense of solitude. This home is filled with tasteful and comfortable furnishings, original Douglas Fir flooring and the town of Estes Park is only a 1/2 mile walk away. ( There are no sidewalks but we walk along the grassy shoulder; it's a 30 mph road.)
Here is the perfect place to come and escape the summer heat (daytime temperatures are generally in the 70's to mid 80's and evenings get into the 40's and 50's) as well as enjoy the serenity of the mountains year round, and a wonderful place for people who appreciate the grace of years past.
Enjoy the all-season sunroom-- the perfect place to play cards, read, sip a cup of your favorite beverage, visit with friends or family, or just relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Big Thompson River. There are plenty of windows to take in the beauty and tranquility of the mountains, including the deer and elk that often wander through (and even the occasional bear).
The entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is just 5 minutes away, with many, many trails to hike, snowshoe or even for backcountry skiing and sledding. The Eldora downhill ski area is an hour drive away.
We provide a collection of DVD's, games, and books, including mountain interest and local information. We also have extras to make your vacation comfortable and safe-- first aid kit, flash light, fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide detector, cooler, snowshoes upon request, etc.
Much effort has been taken to care for and furnish our mountain cabin and we want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable, and to enjoy it as much as we do. We are proud to provide a clean and smoke-free environment (smoking is allowed outside). This had been a family home for 80 years and has only been made available for rentals in the past 10 years.
This Estes Park home has it all--lots of character, a large wooded lot providing privacy without isolation, across the road from the river with no buildings in-between to spoil the view or muffle the sound, walking distance to downtown, a huge stone wood-burning fireplace, mountain views, high-speed wireless internet and room inside and out to spread out and relax.
Experience the true feeling of Colorado in your home away from home.
Note- two bedrooms are connected, meaning you walk though one to get to the other.
