Estes Park Registration/ Business License #3067.
The cabin is only a 15 minute walk to downtown Estes Park shopping and restaurants. It is 1255 square feet and is bordered on the north by a forest that was recently part of Rocky Mountain National Park, and was deeded to the Historic MacGregor Ranch conservation easement in a land exchange that enabled the Park to add hiking trails. These trails are 1 mile north of the cabin on MacGregor Ave/ Devil's Gulch. The MacGregor herd of elk live near the Ranch which is 1/2 mile from the cabin.
The Fall River and Beaver Meadows entrances to RMNP are approximately 2 miles from the cabin.
Since Rocky Mountain National Park built the cabin as a one room cabin, the cabin has quite a large living room with a fireplace. From the backyard sandstone patio, you have a magnificent view of Lumpy Ridge and Twin Owls; Said to have the best granite rock climbing in the state (Rocky Mountain News, Jan 20, 2009). People have seen elk, deer, abert squirrels, hummingbirds, wild turkey, numerous varieties of birds, chip monks, foxes, coyotes, a bobcat, pine martens, and other wildlife very close by, sometimes 2 feet from the kitchen table when the lights are off in the kitchen during the day.
Enjoy a morning cup of coffee on the front deck beneath the pines while looking at the views of Lumpy Ridge and Twin Owls. At night sit on the front deck while looking at the stars.
Although close to downtown, the cabin is in a secluded, quiet setting at the end of a street. Since you can walk or drive less than a mile (9/10 of a mile) into town, you will have both easy access to Estes Park's downtown shopping and restaurants and the enjoyment of nature's tranquility and beauty. You also have quick and easy access to Safeway (the town's large grocery store), fast food, and the visitors center (5 minutes away).
The cabin stays cool during the day as long as you close windows and west blinds during the day and open the windows at night. I have 2 small fans, a large fan and a ceiling fan. No air conditioning is needed.
The driveway can fit 2 cars.
PLEASE NO PETS OR SMOKING -- I have severe allergies.
