About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Walk right out the door to world-class hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park! At the foot of trailheads to Longs Peak and Mount Meeker, as well as all of Wild Basin. Hikes range from easy, level trails with picnics along the St. Vrain river, to difficult hikes up 14000 ft peaks and world-class multi-pitch rock climbs.

Outstanding mountain biking available. Fish in St. Vrain river, or one of a dozen post-card beautiful alpine lakes. Then enjoy a country breakfast in Allenspark (~2 min South on Hwy 7) or a gourmet dinner in Allenspark or Estes Park. This place is one of a kind! Horseback riding and fishing guides are available just around the corner.

Cabin is cozy and comfortable, with all of the amenities of home. Comfortably accommodates a family of 2 to 8. Large yard provides quiet solitude. St Vrain river can be heard at night from our back deck.

Wild animals (Elk, deer, raccoons, squirrel, and bear) sometimes roam through the neighborhood.

Absolutely gorgeous setting in all seasons.

Convenient access ~45 minutes from Boulder, Co, on state highways, or about 90 minutes from DIA.

Why Cynthia Frazier chose Allenspark

We absolutely loved this area the moment we saw it! It is 50 minutes from our home in Louisville so just far enough that we are able to truly get away - yet not so far that we aren't able to enjoy it.

What makes this cabin unique

Very quiet, peaceful and comfortable. The setting is beautiful and the access to hiking is superb.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a very belated note, but we just got back from our travels to Colorado and New Mexico. Definitely the highlight for our family was the stay at your cabin. The accommodations were perfect, comfortable, tastefully done and in a wonderful setting. Your porch was our living room.

Our only regret was the shortness of our stay.

Snowshoeing in the National Park is a favorite of ours! Also, backpacking from our cabin is very fun and safe.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this cottage worked very well for us. Just a short ride down the road from Wild Basin walking trails and waterfalls (bring your park pass). Close enough to Allenspark, Estes Park, and the Rocky Mountain National Park to the north. Close enough to access to some back roads to visit Golden and Boulder, as well. Our grown son loved the privacy of the upstairs bedroom and bathroom, while hubby and I were happy with the convenience of the downstairs queen bedroom. Kitchen, eating area, and living room were quite adequate--we just weren't there to use them much. TV and heating take some figuring out. Owners have left instructions, but still takes some tinkering. Missed out on seeing any wildlife by the cabin. Close enough to the main road that it's easy to get to at night time--a big plus, but still wonderfully quiet. That Wild Basin Sign on the main road is the cue to turn towards the cabin. One more turn by the Church mailbox gets you to a fork in the road, turn left and go slow. The short dirt road is eroded from rains and has some rocks, all manageable, but very bumpy. Cabin is second to the left, after fork. Turn around the tree on the property and you are facing the way out, ready to go. Do take the time to go into the business section of Allenspark, using the business entrance closer to the cabin. We found a good pizzeria and a good breakfast joint, plus a cute little odds and ends store right on the corner. Indian store also close by on main road. Would love to come back and just spend some time in the cabin, doing absolutely nothing, and enjoying the outside porch. Here's to next time.

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed here for a wedding this past weekend. Plenty of room, walking distance to wedding venue, and beautiful hikes accessible from the back door! It was perfect and I would definitely book again!

It was Great!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect! We had plenty of room, it was clean and had everything we needed. The location was great - we drove to Estes Park in less than 30 minutes.

We would recommend this venue and would stay there again ourselves!

Quiet, pretty, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is convenient if you have an event at Wild Basin or like being within walking distance of Rocky Mountain or fishing. The rooms were comfortable and the cabin was clean. I would recommend to all!
