~Enchanted Cabin in the woods on 10 private acres~

Treat yourself to the Real Rocky Mountain Experience in our secluded cabin in the woods with the perfect location and ambiance to set the stage for that memorable vacation in the mountains.

The moment you pull into the driveway you are welcomed to the truly magical forest that surrounds the cabin.

The deck beckons you to relax and enjoy views of the majestic Twin Sisters peak in RMNP. Once you pass through the front door you will be pleasantly surprised to find the same majestic view from every corner of the home through huge picture windows...

The living room is centered around a native moss rock fireplace, ready to go and stocked with wood.

Around the corner, the window seat in the Dining Room is the perfect spot to watch the sunrise with a latte or catch the sunset with a glass of wine. The dining table easily accommodates 6-8 for fantastic meals and fun games.

You'll find everything you need in the fully equipped mountain-contemporary kitchen, including a latte maker for that special treat whenever you want...

The master bedroom boasts a king bed with sitting area, huge corner windows and two closets. 'Moss Brook's' rolling waterfalls will lull you to sleep, especially in the early season.

The neighboring full-bedroom will find you waking in natures' reach as well, with large picture windows that gaze across ancient granite formations.

Completing the main level is a newly remodeled full bath with granite counters, travertine floor and shower/tub surround, along with a laundry room across the hall.

The winding staircase leads you up to the enclosed loft, perfect for Kids with the 2 twin beds and within rambling reach of the games and upstairs TV area.

The quaint upper queen bedroom offers a tree-house vantage from the large picture window, overlooking the forest. The upper level also has a full bath.

We have enjoyed many homes ourselves on vacations and strive to provide you with all that you'll need in this relaxing get-away.

There are magical trails throughout the land, leading to the little creek or out to spectacular vistas. You'll find Lily Lake, with its native Greenback Trout population, a few minutes away. Endless hiking into RMNP from Twin Sisters trailhead, Longs Peak, Wild Basin or right out your back door... Our beautiful Downtown Estes Park is just a 12 minute +/- drive away and was recently voted Top 25 Family Finds!

Beautiful cabin, very secluded

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was in a fantastic location. 10-15 min from Estes Park, it is set in an area that has a few neighbors, but none that you can see. Elk bugling at night was especially surreal. Diane was very helpful, and the rental process was very smooth. Highly recommend this place.

Beautiful home in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Estes Park area for many years and this is one of the best rental homes that we have stayed in. Communication with the owners was stellar and they provide in depth information on the house before we arrived. The house is thoughtfully stocked not only in the kitchen area but also with games, CDs and outdoor equipment.

The house has a beautiful wrap around deck on two sides where we spent our mornings drinking coffee and our evenings sipping wine. The views from the deck are breathtaking and serene. The surroundings were very quite, especially in the evenings and we experienced very little drive by traffic.

The house is very close to RMNP and the town of Estes Park, so we shopped for food on a daily bases on the way back from our daily activities. If you are looking for a nice, quiet stay in the mountains, we would highly recommend this home.

Perfect Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Enchanted Cabin. Diane and Christian were great hosts. The check-in and check-out process were smooth and hassle-free.

The home was exactly what we needed for our two families. The kitchen was well-stocked for cooking meals; there was plenty of room for everyone; and we enjoyed building a fire in the fireplace every night after a day of hiking in the park. The kids loved the upstairs “kids loft” with children's furniture, toys, and a closet hideout.

The location was perfect for us. The huge property with boulders, trees, etc. was just beautiful and provided a play area for the kids. We were just far enough from the crowds in town to feel like we were on a mountain adventure, but were still within easy reach of everything we needed. It was only a 20 minute or so drive into the Beaver Meadows park entrance. And we were even closer to the less-crowded Wild Basin park entrance (with the kid-friendly Ouzel Falls hike) as well as Lily Lake (a great short evening hike and wildlife spot for the kids).

I can't imagine a better location for our family's Rocky Mountain vacation. We even woke up one morning to find a herd of elk enjoying breakfast right outside the cabin windows! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was just a lovely little cabin that's close enough to Estes Park, but far enough away as well. It's an older property, but beautifully updated. We were greeted with a handwritten welcome note and had no issues while there. Close to hiking, close to town, and so nice to hang at the house, too!
