What a great location! Couldn't be easier to walk out and hike. Easy to drive to RMNP also. We saw our first MOOSE on the Ouzel Falls trail at Wild Basin! Thank you

Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at this beautiful mountain home. It is close to Boulder and to Estes Park. Large dining table was great for family dinners every night. Loved the large deck. It was wonderful to sit and drink our coffee outside on the deck in the morning.

Never got a hold of the owner to get the keys

  • 4 of 5

The place was beautiful and clean and had plenty of space! What a great location with so much to see and so much fun for the kids. We did a lot while in this area but the cabin was very nice to come home to every night. The only issue we had was that we could not reach the owner so we did not have keys to lock up when we left. Thank goodness it's very secluded so this wasn't a problem but just made us feel uneasy. We would def stay again!!
