About the property

Adding on and closing down so we can move in for retirement

LOCATION, VIEW AND SERENITY....Thank you all for visiting us. It is time to retire. We are starting remodel on October 1st, 2017, so I will not be taking reservations after that date. There are a few days left in August.

This is a dream A-Frame/Mountain Chalet, recent large addition and remodel . Spectacular 3 acre wooded Lot and Large Meadow. The Deck has a wonderful view Rocky Mountain National Park. Private trails galore. Elk, deer, fox, turkeys, black bears, and Colorado Blue Birds and hummingbirds. Enjoy Hot Tub view off large three tired,flagstone patio with rock face wall and glider swing to enjoy. Sled hill in the winter keeps the kids entertained.

Enjoy high A frame with tung and grove ceilings and walls, and spectacular view of the mountain. This might be the most relaxing place you've ever been. Only eight miles into Estes Park with all that it has to offer. Twenty minutes back to the Luv Shack and you'll be glad your away from all the visitors that frequent Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Temperatures are very moderate; summer days are 70's to 80's with evenings in the 40' to 50's. Winter temps are not as harsh in the Mountains; days 20's to 40's nights in the 20's. Estes Park can be windy in the winter, but not at the Luv Shack. It sits on the side of a hill and the wind blows right over us.

You'll want to come back to the LUV SHACK just because it is fun saying it. We put the sign up on our 30th Wedding Anniversary. This was the place we took time for each other, and so can you.

Looking forward to you enjoying our piece of paradise.

About Debi Mausbach

We have been married for 42 years this year. We have two Children and our daughter and grandchildren live in Estes Park. They love to stay at the LUV SHACK, however they call it the Mountain House. We have decided to rent the Luv Shack out so others can enjoy what we love so much. We only get up about once a month or so, which leaves plenty of time for others. Hope you visit us and enjoy it as much as we do.

Debi Mausbach purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Debi Mausbach chose Front Range

Estes Park has always been my favorite vacation spot and only 50 minutes from our home. Estes has a challenging 18 hole golf course, as well as a 9 hole executive course where the Elk frequent. Estes is also the home to the YMCA of the Rockies with swimming pools, rollerskating, horse back riding, craft room, gym and Lodge all available for public use for a nominal fee.

What makes this chalet unique

The peacefulness. You can hear the quiet. is amazing if you have never heard it before. You can actually hear the hummingbirds flying. You can hear the stream running below from the deck. If you can't relax here you can't relax anywhere......EASY CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT

Most peaceful and relaxing home away from home cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd annual trip to Estes Park/Glen Haven and our 2nd stay at the Luv Shack. If the cabin were for sale, we'd buy it in a heartbeat. Loved all the wildlife around the property. Cabin is very cozy and is tucked away from others. We'll be returning to the Luv Shack every year until we find a cabin of our own.

"Hear the silence."

  • 5 of 5

Our priority for a vacation is being away from civilization. The mountains and forest are bonuses. The Luv Shack delivered. It is in a beautiful setting trucked in between forests under rising mountains. The cabin has a kitchen with everything you could need to cook meals. (There is a Safeway before you leave Estes Park. Get your supplies. This is the closest spot.) There were only two of us so we spent hours just sitting on the deck. It was so nice to escape! Try the hike that is available to residents of this neighborhood. It was a bit challenging for us old folks but well worth it. (No crowds like in the park) No cell service. Yea! You won't go wrong with the LuvShack!

Great property, Great home, Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Luv Shack. So many great experiences to be had as a family right on this property. Our three kids (age 9, 6, 5) never wanted to leave. Great views from the deck, porch, and bedrooms. Woke up our first morning to 2 large elk on the ridge. Deer, turkey, chipmunks, everyday. I never would have thought a family of five (with three kids under the age of 10) could have such a relaxing and bonding trip. I would like to thank the owners for allowing us this awesome experience. We have already began talks of dates for our next trip back!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The Luv Shack is a great cabin! We really enjoyed our stay there. The cabin has everything you could want! The kitchen was stocked with pots/pans and anything else you may need to cook your meals. We cooked breakfast all four mornings we were there, made packable lunches for hiking in RMNP, and cooked our dinners at the cabin. Deb has plenty of spices there for guest use. Whenever I book a VRBO I always wonder what we'll need to buy for the stay like coffee filters, salt and pepper, oil etc. The luv shack was stocked and we left our contributions to the inventory as well. The view from the balcony was fabulous and we enjoyed the hot tub! We saw deer and wild turkeys out the back window and enjoyed star gazing in the evening. I was concerned about road work but it's complete and there were no delays. We debated staying in Estes Park prior to booking the cabin and we are so glad we decided to stay a bit north at the luv shack! I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to my family and friends!

In love with the Luv Shack

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Luv Shack. The cabin is secluded and you really are away from it all. Wildlife surrounds the cabin, and the hot tub is perfect for relaxing while star gazing. Cabin is very cozy and kitchen is stocked with almost everything you need for cooking. We definitely did not want to leave and are planning our return.

Thank you for sharing your precious property with us! ♡
