Step back in time to a bygone era when vacations were actually relaxing. Whispering Pines vacation home, a charming rental retreat only 2 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park (and right across the road from the Big Thompson river), was built with integrity and beautiful craftsmanship which has been maintained throughout the years. There aren't many of these left.

Here you will find Old Estes charm, updated with 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 old property.

Nestled among aspen and ponderosa pine trees, some of which are hundreds of years old, this is an heirloom historic 1928 property.

The 1 1/2 acres with mountain views and rock outcroppings contribute to the sense of solitude. This home is filled with tasteful and comfortable furnishings, 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 vintage flair and 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. 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 cabin 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.

This place has a sense of history and stands out from the crowd; a place you won't forget.

Note- two bedrooms are connected, meaning you walk though one to get to the other.

Why The Owner chose Front Range

We love Estes Park and have been coming here for decades to relax, hike, snowshoe, shop and take in the mountain air. This cabin fit our ideal perfectly, and we feel so fortunate to have found it. It's great not only for a quiet , peaceful retreat and family gatherings.

. We have kept the character and charm of the home, while updating to make for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Beautiful local views and sounds from the river. We had several Elk and a coyote visit as we enjoyed the hot tub. Close to town and the park made. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. We will definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our time at this property. Sue was wonderful to work with and the home was a great place to relax and unwind after exploring Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. We really enjoyed the hot tub and four seasons room, which was perfect for morning coffee and a good book. Would definitely like to return!

Amazing cabin with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of my favorite places to get away to that I've ever been! Not only is it close to town and lots of area attractions, but there is everything you need to stay in and enjoy this cozy cabin. It's also nice and big so there's plenty of room to enjoy it with lots of family and friends! The owners take such good care of it and have wonderful attention to detail providing just about everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Love that it's a little tucked away and has a big fireplace. Look no further, this is where you want to stay if you're visiting Estes! :)

Wonderful cabin close to Rocky Mountain National Park!

  • 5 of 5

This comfy cabin is in a perfect location, close to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. The owner was quick to respond with questions. There was plenty of room for our family and everything we needed was provided-even a booster seat for our grandson, who really enjoyed sitting at the dining room table with the adults.

And the herd of elk in the front yard on our last day was the icing on the cake. We will definitely visit this cabin again!

Extremely Pleased!!

  • 5 of 5

Whispering Pines was more than we could have asked for. Located just outside of the hustle & bustle of town it is perfectly located to wherever you want to go. The cabin itself is just adorable and extremely well maintained. The rooms were clean and spacious. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay. My husband does not usually like to return to a place he has already visited but has already said "We will definitely be returning to Estes Park and staying at Whispering Pines"! Thank you so much to Sue for making our vacation such an amazing one!!!
