~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!

Hidden away yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what we wanted...comfortable amenities in a cozy cabin feel that felt remote yet was close (10 minutes) to Estes Park. With hiking trails and Longs Peak less than five minutes away it was ideally located for our family's outdoor adventures. Fantastic stay and excellent communication from owners. Thank you for a wonderful stay...we'll be back!

Beautiful Cabin, Perfect Location - Vacation to Remember

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect way to unwind and refresh in the mountains. We brought 2 couples and our 2 daughters, both under 12 yrs old, to this perfect cabin for a fun summer vacation. There was the plenty of room for all of us, all the amenities you could want with no neighbors in sight. We spent days hiking the various trails, horseback riding or exploring Estes Park, CO which was only a 15 minute drive away.

In the evenings we would play board games, sit on the beautiful porch or have a smore by the fireplace inside. The creek out back was a special treat and the girls spent most mornings discovering the creek and exploring the rocks and area around the house. We were greeting by a calm Moose out the back of the house on one of our last days and a sweet family of Elk grazed in a field on our way in to the cabin. This was the perfect mix of things to do and relaxing breezes as we spent one day lounging and resting in the cabin.

Everyone was in love with our trip and there were many "I don't want to leave!" and "Can we please come back again!" comments on our final days of the vacation. Thank you Diane for checking in with us, providing a relaxing home and being attentive to us as we planned our vacation.

This cabin is on our list of Must Come Backs!

Amazing cabin and property!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a gem tucked away on a beautiful, quiet hillside - made our stay in Estes even better! Close enough to Estes but far enough away to get out of the hustle and bustle. Loved that we had so much room around us- our own creek running through the backyard. Elk walking through our yard in the evening. This cabin has it all! We had 6 adults and 2 children and plenty of room. Don't miss out on this cabin!!! Diane and Christian were perfect hosts

Great Place / Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with the location, it's very pretty and private. There was rare May snow storm that dropped 4 feet of snow in May. The hosts handled the situation very well and were attentive, fair, and made sure someone came by to check on us. I was very impressed with how they approached it.

Very clean, comfortable place. Good location, pretty easy to get to town and it was a nice drive. probably another 1500 ft of elevation.

First, the owners are great, Diane was super responsive and answered any question I had before and during the stay. Second, is the house itself, the location was fantastic, and you can really tell that the owners care about the house. It was super clean and there was no detail missed, everything we needed was there, which I find is rare in my experience with renting vacation homes. It was definitely the most well appointed home we've rented and by far had the most comfortable bed. Getting a good nights sleep and feeling rested for the days adventures is important so one thing I like to point out is whether or not a bed is comfortable, and this one was :) We will definitely consider this our first choice place to stay should we find ourselves in Estes Park again!
