About the owner: I have been an outfitter for 29 years and have been in the Estes area for 35 years. This is my 'Jeremiah Johnson' dream cabin that needs to be shared. I offer summer horseback rides, fall hunting, and winter snowcat tours as well as back country snowshoe/skiing activities from this property.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
This is a one in a million piece of property right outside of Estes and totally off the grid. It is only an hour and 20 minutes from Denver International Airport.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
While town is only 6 miles away, getting to and from is a true adventure in itself. I can easily go a week without seeing anyone else. Sitting on the deck in the morning with a good cup of coffee and no sound at all except the wildlife is a soul changing experience. Some days are active with every conceivable outdoor winter activity right on property, but others are curl up with a book and watch the snow fall.
