Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

NOTE: If less than the minimum nights (3 in peak season) are available between other bookings we can usually reserve two nights for you if you contact me. The system will not allow online booking for less than the minimum.

With views and rock outcroppings all around, the cabin is located one mile west of downtown Estes Park and approximately three miles east of Rocky Mountain National Park.

This non-smoking log cabin has a warm knotty pine interior and is spotless, with lots of character. The wood-burning fireplace is the focal point of the living room, adding a cozy touch on those chilly evenings. Enjoy a good night's sleep on our quality mattresses in the two bedrooms, each with a dresser and closet.

The kitchen is inviting with lots of windows - and great for enjoying the many mule deer and elk that often wander through the area, as well as the birds that come to our feeders. Cabinets are thoroughly stocked for your convenience. The bathroom has a large shower. We also have a picnic table and barbecue grill in the back yard. The south-facing deck is a perfect spot to relax with a cup of your favorite beverage.

Our guests have commented 'Comfortable and inviting, it is the nicest cabin we have been in,' and 'This was by far the most comfortable and homey cabin we've ever stayed at in Estes Park.'

Here is the perfect place for a vacation (or holiday)getaway to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Rocky Mountains.

About The Owner

We love going to Estes Park to kick back, relax, read by the fireplace, watch the deer and elk and hike or snowshoe in the mountains. This cabin fit our ideal image of a cozy place to relax in.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1999

Why The Owner chose Estes Park

Estes Park is a wonderful, quaint, picturesque town with lots of outdoorsy things to do.

We love this knotty pine cabin . To this is the epitome of what a mountain cabin should be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time exploring the park-great hiking and trail running! Great location-right by the park entrance and grocery store. The cabin was the exact feel we were looking for-very much the idea of a mountain cabin anybody would have! Thanks again.

The Shawnee

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest little cabin I've ever stayed in. Situated only a few miles from the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park it is perfect for a family of 4 visiting the National park or the town of Estes Park. We were very impressed. The owner Sue was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was very neat, clean, and cozy. It had everything you would need to fix a meal and then relax on the porch and watch the elk roam through fields. I would definitely stay hear again. And VRBO made the whole process of securing the accommodations easy.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our little family. My lone complaint would be it can be difficult to find in the dark. We arrived around 10 PM to check in but had some trouble finding the turn. We called the owner and she was able to direct us in however. Estes Park is a "dark sky" town so not much you can do about that though. Great little place.

Perfect little simple cottage. My favorite room is the Kitchen/Dining.

  • 5 of 5

My only suggestion is that the two beds need better pillows.

Perfect little get away!

  • 5 of 5

Love this little cabin, it's perfect for couples, or a small family retreat. With easy access to town and lots of local attractions you can't go wrong. Plus they've provided everything you need to stay in and be cozy by the fire too! We even had the pleasure of seeing lots of wildlife right outside the windows - lots of deer came into the back yard and even came right up to us to say hi! The accommodations and recommendations for the area are great - they've really thought of everything!!! :)

Estes Park Wildlife Haven

Charming little cabin, close to town, great owner communication, nicely appointed, good sized for a couple. Wild turkeys, deer, elk came daily. Decent bedding, big big fireplace, the real rocky mountain experience. Could use a small coffee table thats all. Thank you.

Cozy and quiet cabin stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wow...we were impressed at how quickly the owners responded to questions and the detailed notes in the cabin about the surrounding area! The cabin is cozy and quaint...we absolutely loved all the windows in the kitchen and breakfast area! We heard elk bugling nearby two nights and the Elk Festival was fun and informative. We also slept more soundly than we have in a long time...comfortable queen bed. We will be back! Thank you!
