About Cheryl Anderson

We turned our family cabin purchased in 1986 into a vacation rental in 2002. We totally remodeled inside and out and designed with a professional designer to get all of the touches that make your stay more enjoyable. My husband, Dan and I live in Fort Collins, an hour away from Estes and do all of our own cleaning, maintenance,and improvements to make sure everything is perfect for your stay. I know you will love our warm and cozy home and the privacy the location offers.

Cheryl Anderson purchased this house in 1987

Why Cheryl Anderson chose Front Range

Estes Park is just an hour away from our home, a great place for us to get away to one of the most beautiful places in Colorado. We originally built in 1986, remodeled in 2002, and continually work to improve the quality of the rental. Meadowdale Hills is a small subdivision with lots at nearly 2 acres with quiet and space. Elk love the meadow and ranch nearby and frequent our property.

What makes this house unique

Our home is only five minutes from downtown Estes Park making the location convenient but not in a crowded subdivision in town. My front porch is spacious with views that are inspiring. I provide many amenities so you don't have to pack so much for your trip, including condiments, spices, flour and sugar, robes, bag chairs for a picnic and many other items.

Enjoying Snowed Inn Estes with my bear-y good friend

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 27, 2009

Snowed Inn Estes was a great place to stay! While we were still unpacking the car, we were treated to the sight of a dozen elk coming down the hill behind the cabin. When we went inside, we were immediately impressed with the lovely rooms, each with those extra little decorating touches that added warmth and beauty to make us feel very much at home. It was very apparent that the owners love this home and want their guests to enjoy it as much as they do. The kitchen was fully equipped with excellent cookware as well as many spices and condiments. All of the beds were extremely comfortable, ensuring a good night’s sleep. The open floor plan perfectly accommodated the dining and entertainment needs of our large group. Weather permitting, we recommend starting your day eating breakfast outside on the front porch. The guest house offered the perfect solution for additional space if you’re traveling with a larger group. The guest house featured charming décor, a queen bed and a luxurious jetted tub! Again, the owners have truly gone out of their way to make this a special place. Snowed Inn Estes is convenient to Rocky Mountain National Park and a variety of activities including hiking, biking, rafting, and more. It’s an ideal location to seek peace and quiet in the outdoors, but it’s also nearby to downtown Estes Park with its many shops, excellent restaurants, library, and movie theater. Remember to buy some salt water taffy at The Taffy Shop! This comfortable, inviting home had everything we needed in a vacation home and more. Try Snowed Inn Estes for an outstanding mountain getaway destination. The VRBO Bear

A Mountainous Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It's decor and charm were just what we were looking for. We are Floridians so the mountain scenery and vibe of Estes Park were perfect for our trip! Also, the owners were very easy to work with. All and all a great experience.

Beautiful, Clean Home!

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl was so helpful in accomodating our family reunion. She was conscientious in all of her correspondance. The homes were really nice- very clean and tastefully decorated. We had 4 households there (including the guest house), and everybody enjoyed out stay at Snowed Inn. The hill behind the homes was just great for hikes with the children (and adults!). And we always enjoy God's creation in Estes Park. If we come back to Estes, we'll most likely come back to Snowed Inn! Thanks again, Cheryl.

Great Home Base

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great "home base" for Estes Park, Lyons, and Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park activities. We had family wedding-related events in all 3 places, and this location was perfect. Also very comfortable and spacious. The owner, Cheryl, was easy to work with, and she went out of her way to make our visit successful. The best part -- we viewed the eclipse (92 percent ) from the lovely back porch. No obstructions, and no crowds!

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We saw deer in the back of the cabin, and elk across the road. It is very close to Estes Park. I highly recommend it. Thank you Cheryl!
