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; Said to have the best granite rock climbing in the state (Rocky Mountain News, Jan 20, 2009). You can see elk, deer, abert squirrels, hummingbirds, wild turkey, numerous varieties of birds, chip monks, foxes, coyotes,a bobcat, 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 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).

About Sherry and Steve
We enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, nature and wildlife photography, wildflowers, and nature in general. Guest constantly comment to me how comfortable they are in our cabin and thank us for sharing this wonder place and can tell the cabin is well kept
Sherry and Steve purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Sherry and Steve chose Estes Park
Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the Crown Jewels of the National Park System! Estes Park is such a charming town. We fell in love with the serenity of the location being next to the forest, the large cabin with the large windows with the ability to watch wildlife from the windows, and being so close to all entrances to RMNP.
What makes this Cabin unique
Being within close walking/driving distance of downtown Estes (less than a mile) and close to Rocky Mountain National Park Trails. Living in a peaceful neighborhood at the end of a dead end street that is bordered on the north by a forest, MacGregor Ranch conservation easement and seeing lots of wildlife. But still being 5 minutes from Safeway.

An amazing trip!
Our girls weekend was great! The cabin had absolutely everything we needed and wanted, and was exceptionally clean, cozy, and well-stocked. The location was excellent--and we even got to spend one morning hanging out with the deer in the yard. Thank you so much Sherry for letting us borrow some time in your amazing piece of paradise!!!!
Close to Rocky Mountain National Park, downtown Estes Park, and Safeway! Fabulous cabin! We are already planning a trip to stay here next year.
Great Cozy Cabin for family vacation
My family had a great time in this cabin. It was very roomy with 2 bedrooms and a fold out couch in living room / 2 bathrooms. The kitchen was FULLY stocked with spices / pots & pans / measuring cups, we found everyhing we could possibly need. I enjoyed looking for wildlife in the mornings with my son, we saw a coyote out front on our second morning there. So many fun things to do around Estes, we spent a day walking in downtown Estes along the river walk, it is such a charming downtown scene. We went after Christmas so I enjoyed all the lights that were strung up throughout town. We got a week pass to Rocky Mountain National Park and hiked to Bear Lake which was frozen so we walked out on the lake which my kids enjoyed. Another day we hiked to Alberto Falls and the waterfall was frozen yet you could see running water beneath it - it was magnificent. We borrowed the 2 sleds that Sherry left in the master bedroom closet and then rented 2 more and spent 2 days sledding at Hidden Valley in Rocky Mountain Nationa Park. We did not get tired of racing each other and seeing how far we could go each time, it was a magical place. Then we went to Sweet Basilica for lunch - Sherry had recommended that place and we loved it too. For the price this cabin gives you much more space than other cabins. It is very close to town, we would have walked except my daughter said it was too cold:) so we drove 3 - 4 min to town. The cabin was very very clean. My husband notices that sort of thing more than I do and he commented several times he had never stayed in a place that was so clean. It is an older cabin, but very cozy on the inside, I loved the big family room that we could just lounge in at the end of the day around the fire. I will definitely stay here again. Locals told us to come back and see what it is like in summer months. I don't see how it could be any more impressive, but they claim that it is.
Thank you for the great review. I work hard to make this the kind of place I also really enjoy from it being clean to all the extras I try to have on hand. And yes the summer is even more majical but with more people.
Our Estes Park Home
My sister and I have stayed at Sherry's Peaceful Historic Cabin several times. The last couple of years ('16 and '17), we've brought along our 91-year-old mother. The three of us LOVE this cabin. We love the fact that it is in a quiet area of town, that it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a great kitchen and laundry area, a large and roomy living room, and a comfy patio. We had many lovely warm days during our most recent visit and on the days my sister and I hiked, Mom was able to sit out on the patio and read for a few hours at a time. One of the BEST features of this cabin, though, is its location. The Safeway is a five-minute drive away without having to go through downtown, while Big Horn Drive (a block south of Granite Lane where the cabin is located) can take you all the way to the US 34 Bypass. From here, you can turn west to enter RMNP at the Fall River Station entrance. If you choose to stay on Big Horn Dr., simply cross US 34 Bypass heading south, wind through a residential area in the northwest section of Estes Park, and eventually it'll connect with the US34/US36 intersection on the WEST SIDE of Estes, over by the movie theater. VERY convenient. VERY fast. And the best part is that you'll avoid the congestion of downtown Estes during the crush of tourist season. Wildlife was VERY active this year. Almost every day, deer and elk wandered around the neighborhood or in the open fields that border the property on one side. It really is just a fantastic place to stay.
Very clean, great location, near downtown Estes Park.
We had a wonderful vacation here. Walking distance from downtown Estes Park, the Stanley Hotel. A quiet area. The cabin was perfect for what we needed and comfortable. We would definitely stay again if we visit that area again.
Quiet, comfortable, clean and convenient.
Our experience at the cabin was wonderful. The property was very welcoming and anything we needed was provided. Furnishings were nice and comfortable. A quiet patio to retreat to at any time of the day. Most enjoyable.
Estes Park Rated #1 by Smithsonian for the Best Small Town to Visit. I'll tell your where to find my favorite places, also the locals favorites, to shop/eat and places to find wild life. Rocky Mountain National Park is visited by more tourist than Yellowstone or Yosemite National Park. They are in the know!!!
