Estes Valley Vacation Home Operating Permit License #6022

**We manage our own rentals at AspenHaus Cabin and are not associated with Aspen Brook Vacation Homes** Mark and Sue, Owners

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

We have always wanted to "work where we live versus live where we work" in 2010 we took a chance and started our boutique vacation rental service business (Good Neighbor Vacation Rentals, LLC) in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado.

In addition to operating our own vacation rentals, we are a boutique service provider to like-minded vacation rental homeowners.

As travelers ourselves, we enjoy a high-quality travel/vacation experience; and in that regard, quality & customer service are at the top of our product offering...reflected in what our guests have to say (please check-out the reviews for all of our properties!!).

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

We are also diehard fans of the St. Louis Cardinals & Blues, Buffalo Bills & Sabres, world cup soccer, Pittsburgh Penguins (some of us!), VT Hokies and the Rocky Mountains!

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! We purchased our first home in this location (AspenHaus Lodge) in 2010. AspenHaus Cabin is an even cozier version located just right 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!

Aspen Haus Review

  • 5 of 5

When it says Location, Location, Location - That is exactly what they mean. The area, the neighborhood and home were just fantastic. The home is in a private neighborhood and the scenery is absolutely awesome. The home is far enough from the hustle and bustle of town but you are a very short drive to be in the thick of things in Estes Park or a short drive, or a short hike, to Rocky Mountain National Park. The home is beautifully decorated, the kitchen is well equipped with utensils and dishes (just bring your food if you want to cook). The bed was also very comfortable. The owner of the property was just a phone call away if we needed anything and provides the home visitor with very good general information and instructions. We will definitely put this home at the top of our list to visit again in the future.

Great Place to Stay in Estes Park.

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was very clean and well stocked with all that we needed for the stay. Sue and Mark were more than responsive, they definitely go all out to see that their guests are happy and have a great stay. Even before we arrived Sue was sending us emails of things to do to improve our stay. We will definitely stay there again it we return to Estes Park.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at AspenHaus Cabin. The property was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The bedrooms were roomy , beds comfortable and even with six adults and a toddler we never felt cramped. Details matter and the owners excelled in providing the little things that made AspenHaus feel like home. Sue provided several pre-visit emails about the property and area activities that helped us plan our stay. The location was great for getting into RMNP or the YMCA of the Rockies by foot or car and avoiding the downtown congestion. The neighborhood playground across the street was a plus for our two year old granddaughter.

They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is our best VRBO experience yet! Our family of 6 (3 kids and 3 adults) enjoyed our stay thoroughly! They have a fully stocked kitchen (even provide coffee), clean and stocked bathrooms, and plenty of closet space. All the beds were comfortable. All new appliances, and they even provided laundry detergent. The location in Estes Park felt perfect for enjoying Rocky Mountain National Park. Close to restaurants, and corner grocery store (without having to go into the downtown area). We would not hesitate to return if we ever get the chance!

Very clean and well kept home.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very helpful in planning our trip and the home was very clean and well stocked for guests. The location of the home was centrally located to many excursions. Our family of 4 stayed for 4 nights and we hated to leave. Very quiet community. I highly recommend this home.
