Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This 1935 Cabin retains its old world mountain charm with restored original hardwood floors, cedar wall accents, and split log siding. At the same time it incorporates all modern conveniences necessary for a comfortable stay including a new kitchen, bathroom and energy efficient windows, one of which is a picture window allowing perfect views of the sunrise. Heating units keep the cabin cozy even on chilly nights.

Get away to this quiet retreat just steps away from Rocky Mountain National Park. Why not climb Eagle Cliff Mountain, rising behind the cabin. Or shop the unique stores in quaint downtown Estes Park. In the evenings, relax under the gazebo with 365 degree views of the mountains and watch for the family of deer that meanders through the property most days.

The cabin is open year round, allowing you to experience the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in any season or during any holiday.

About Ruth

My husband & I own the cabin along with my retired parents. My husband is busy as Principal of a K-8 charter school in the Denver area, so my parents and I are the primary managers of the property. My parents were linguists, living in Peru, South America, for over 40 years. I was an English/Writing teacher for years but now work part time out of our home. We love to get away to our mountain retreat and hope that you will enjoy the peaceful quiet as much as we do.

Ruth purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Ruth chose Front Range

My Great-Great Grandfather was a homesteader in Estes Park. Our branch of the family moved away from Colorado, but my father remembers spending summers in Estes park in the 1940's. Several of our family are living back in Colorado, and now we're thrilled to have a cabin in Estes Park where we can build memories with our children. In our completely unbiased opinion, Estes Park is the most beautiful year round vacation spot in the U.S.

What makes this cabin unique

Because the cabin faces Southeast, I love sitting in front of the picture window and watching the sun rise over the mountains. Likewise, the gazebo offers stunning views at sunset with the clouds turning pink and orange all around. And on full moon nights, the view is spectacular! The full kitchen and gas grill help to make life easy for us: eating dinner outside on the patio is always refreshing. Most afternoons, a family of deer meanders through the property on their way down the mountain. Our children love to climb the mountain behind the cabin and even play cellphone hide-and-seek among the trees, rocks, and outcroppings. As a family, we often walk the 20 minute trail skirting the mountain and ending up at the Moraine Park Museum. From there, we can take the summer shuttle bus almost anywhere in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Also a short walk away but at the bottom of the hill, we can take the free Estes Park shuttle bus into town in the summer and not worry about parking. Other times of year, we are a short 5 minute drive from downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed wonderful days in the cabin in Estes Park and in the Rocky Mountain National Park with its magnificent scenery-- appreciated all the more when there is a comfortable "home-away-from-home" to return to in the evening. You have decorated and furnished it so great. Don't think you have missed anything.

Bigger than I expected

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful trip. The cabin was bigger than we had expected, stocked with everything you would need to cook and a great location close to Etes Park and the Rocky Mountain National park. We still definitely be back in the future.

Cabin is what the description says. Great value for the price

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is truly cozy, small, but for a family with 1 or 2 kids perfect. Or even just for a couple as a nice get away. Clean and has everything that one would need for a few days stay. Owner is really nice and I would for sure come again.

It is close to town, close to trails and very quiet and peaceful. We had a good time

There is no better place to relax then on the side of Eagle Cliff Mountain! You can hike into the Rocky Mountain National Park or drive in without having to fight the tourist traffic in town. Eagle Cliff Mountain offers easy access to the YMCA of the Rockies, many nice restaurants and a small corner grocers, once again, without having to fight the tourist traffic in town.
