There's plenty to do at the cabin when you are not out exploring the national park. We have lots of cards, games, puzzles, books, ping-pong, DVD's, WiFi, Dish Network, or relax out on the spacious deck or front porch. You can also relax by the gas fireplace on cool nights.

About Blaine and Jenny Moats

My wife and I live in Des Moines, Iowa. My cousin and co-owner Bruce, lives in Ft. Collins, CO. Every year my family meets up at the cabin with my mother from AZ and my sister's family from Denver for a family reunion. There is plenty of room for us all and we never get tired of the endless trails and beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Blaine and Jenny Moats purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Blaine and Jenny Moats chose Estes Park

My Dad and Mom have rented this property since I was a teen. It's been 25 years and we still go back to this same cabin every year for a reunion. I have many memories growing up and vacationing here, and now we will have new memories with my wife and two daughters.

We've had a dream of owning a property in Estes Park for many years and have looked at many cabins for sale the last five years. But we always compared them to this cabin and were never satisfied. Recently, the owners we've known growing up decided to sell and we could not let it go. We know you will enjoy this property as our family, friends and previous renters have for over 25 years.

What makes this cabin unique

We love this cabin because we can go to Rocky Mountain National Park within minutes or enjoy quiet time at home with timber and mountain views. If we need to go shopping or decide to head out for dinner, it's a quick trip in the opposite direction to downtown Estes Park. We are very close to downtown and many shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

Home away from Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Blaine was extremely responsive throughout our trip and really helpful answering our questions! The house was easy to find and great for our family of 11 to stay in (including 4 kids who loved the upstairs bedroom area)!! The fireplace is fabulous and we loved using it to stay warm while we were there over NYE. The house does have some staples (salt, sugar, paper plates, paper towels, etc) and we left some stuff there as well for the next guests. If you're looking for some place cozy and a bit rustic, this is a great option! :)

*The only bummer was that may affect some people is that the internet / wifi didn't work on any phones or devices, but the kids were able to get Netflix to stream!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed Estes Park and RMNP! The Wi-Fi had too many users in our modem. The SSID was reset and is back up and running. We hope you decide to stay again!

My family and I booked this cabin for a winter holiday. The property is located in a good place close to town and the park.

The fireplace - that is the primary heat source in the house - broke in a very dramatic way. It started shooting sparks and lights started flickering before it popped its circuit. We contacted the owners and they very nice but they were unable to get a repair person to the cabin before we left. To be fair the fire place broke on Christmas eve which I expect made it an formidable task to get some one out. We managed to keep warm using the space heaters that were in the cabin but we kept popping circuits.

Also we found out that you have to wash your linniins before you go which was a bit frustrating as it takes a bit of time to wash that many sheets and we had to leave early that day.

Owner's Response: I sincerely apologize for the issues you had! I appreciated your patience. The fireplace is 4 months old and was installed by a company in Ft Collins, CO. We are very unhappy with the whole situation too. We answered your calls on Christmas Eve and everytime during the holiday. We called the fireplace company in the morning during your stay to try and get them out to repair. Due to the Christmas holiday, we were unable to get a repairman out during your stay. We called the only two other companies in Estes and they did not answer the phone. We described the issues to our installer and he said they would have to order a motherboard which could take a week. I'm very sorry it stop working but we tried our best to get it fixed. This was out of our control and you been have been compensated for your issues. Every room has a heater in the room. We have extra space heaters in for the living room. You said you were warm and happy. As far as the linens, This is expected of 90 percent of VRBO owners. Or you can pay double housekeeping fee. All we ask is you start a load before you leave. Thanks, Blaine

Girl's weekend of fun and relaxation!

  • 4 of 5

The house and location were just perfect for the eight of us. Very comfortable and cabin like. We loved watching the wild turkeys up the road as they ran and chased one another. The weather was wet but didn't stop us from getting out and enjoying the Rocky Mountain air!

These next thoughts wouldn't have stopped us from choosing this property just feedback.

1. There is no dishwasher which we weren't prepared for since we didn't read the detailed description. No problem though!

2. Be prepared to leave enough time to wash and dry linens.

3. The kitchen could use some organizing but again, no problem!
