Aspen Brook Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom walk into RMNP along the Big Thomson River

'It's not just a transaction...for us it's our passion!'

AspenHaus Cabin is situated in a parklike setting with shared access to the Big Thompson River. From our cozy mountain home it is just a short walk into the Rocky Mountain National Park, 1/2 mile to the YMCA of the Rockies, 2 miles to the Beaver Meadows entrance of RMNP and 3.5 miles to the town center. Or simply leave your car at our home and take the FREE Estes Park Summer shuttle from a stop located within 1/4 mile of AspenHaus Cabin!!

And the AspenHaus Cabin is right down the road from AspenHaus Lodge... purchased in January 2013 we have freshly updated it to provide you with the same ultimate Rocky Mountain experience! Since buying the cabin we have updated the kitchen, painted the entire interior, re-finished the pine floors, had new carpet installed throughout, purchased new furniture for the great room as well as other mountain cabin furnishings, installed gas logs, a new Weber natural gas grill for the deck, updated lighting and stained/painted the exterior deck and trim. Ready-set-go!

The main level vaulted great room is an ideal gathering space with a floor-to-ceiling Colorado moss rock fireplace in a warm and inviting living room setting, an adjoining fully equipped kitchen and dining room area. Picture windows all artwork needed on these walls!

Step out on the deck to enjoy the sounds of the Big Thompson River, just a stone's throw-away; and sneak a peek of Flattop Mountain and Hallett through aspen groves and pine trees... you can take it all in while having your morning coffee, an evening glass of wine or cooking dinner on the grill. And while you are there be sure to say 'hey' to our frequent visitors including elk and wild turkeys!

The main floor bedroom has a king sized bed with an adjoining full bath. Also on the main floor is an off-kitchen laundry and access to the one car attached garage.

The second level of AspenHaus Cabin has two vaulted ceiling bedrooms (a king bed in one and 2 twins in the other); connected by a loft hallway and jack-and-jill bathroom with a separate (double) sink area.

As our guest you will enjoy access to shared common fishing, picnic and playground areas along the Big Thompson river... all within sight of AspenHaus Cabin.

Take a short woodsy walk along the Big Thompson River and emerge to expansive views of Moraine Park. Visit the museum, catch the shuttle to other RMNP destinations or continue your hike on to Cub Lake where you will have extraordinary opportunities to view herds of elk along the way.

Need we go on... our family thinks that AspenHaus Cabin is perfect in every way... not just another vacation rental but our perfect mountain cabin!

About Mark and Sue Werder

Mark and Sue Werder purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mark and Sue Werder chose Estes Park

We have spent many of our summer vacations visiting national parks and the RMNP is our hands-down favorite! After 2 years of searching for a home in Estes Park we knew that AspenHaus Lodge was the perfect one for us... and AspenHaus Cabin is an even cozier version, just down the road!

What makes this cabin unique

Walk directly into the RMNP or access the shuttle bus by foot to avoid traffic and delays!


Exceptional! 5/5 -

I cannot even begin to describe how well this rental is run. This cabin is as perfect as it gets! Close to RMNP for hiking and wildlife viewing. It was very relaxing to settle in after a wonderful day of sightseeing. The kitchen is well appointed and there is plenty of room to stretch out by the fire. I was perfectly content to sit by the large picture window just trying to catch a glimpse of the plentiful wildlife that frequents the area. Your hosts, Sue and Mark, are very special people, who, obviously, love making sure that any guest of their's is well taken care of. I highly recommend AspenHaus cabin! We absolutely hated leaving this little gem!

The perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

I must have looked at a thousand homes when researching our stay in Estes Park. We narrowed it down to a handful and ended up going with Aspen Haus, which ended up being a GREAT decision. Sue, the owner, was absolutely fabulous to work with, sharing helpful tips with us prior to our arrival, like favorite restaurants, favorite hikes, and other things of that nature. The home is nestled in a small and quaint community with a few other cabins, tucked away in a forest right by the Big Thompson River. We saw more wildlife sitting on the deck at our cabin than we did in the park! Each morning we had elk and mule deer grazing right in our yard! One day we were even lucky enough to see a lynx (or bobcat) walking through the front yard. We also saw a great horned owl one evening as we went for a walk through the community. It was so cool seeing all the wildlife! The location of the cabin is perfect, only a few minutes from the main part of Estes Park, and just minutes from the entrance of RMNP. There were some great restaurants nearby and grocery shopping not too far away, in case you want to cook in the very well stocked kitchen. This was a great vacation, and a great cabin - perfect for me and my husband and his parents. Thanks to the Werders for sharing their beautiful home with us.

Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Sue Werder was very attentive to all of our needs. She e-mailed a lot of great information before we ever even arrived and all of the information was very helpful. Saw tons of Elk right in the neighborhood. House was well taken care of and kitchen was well stocked. Gas fireplace was an easy to use bonus. Very close to the park entrance. Overall a great place to stay and close to everything.

Perfect place to stay in Estes!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this cabin! Sue was wonderful and helped answer our questions about places to eat and activities throughout our stay! This cabin is very roomy and was the cleanest VRBO place we have ever stayed at. Sues attention to detail, including a book with favorites and things to do was top notch! My husband and sons enjoyed the fishing just several yards from our door and all of my kids enjoyed the playground area and picnic tables. We would definitely stay here again!
