About the property

Cabin, 4 Br, 2 Full Bath, Sleeps Up To 10 People. Great Location And Free Wifi

Estes Park vacation home registration # 3131

Enjoy our beautiful furnished 4 bedroom, 2 full bath 1274 sq ft cabin, located just 1.14 miles to the gates of Rocky Mountain National Park. Nestled just off the beaten path of downtown Estes Park on a wooded .7 acre lot with mountain views, you will often see deer and elk on the property sleeping under the pines in the front yard. Pan for gold with the kids in the Big Thompson River just a 1/2 block walking distance. Grab your fishing pole, Mary's lake is .8 miles up the road. Or discover popular downtown Estes which is a short 2 mile drive.

Outside there is a large deck for relaxing, reading, sunning or eating. There is also a large fenced yard for plenty of playing. The garage has an extra fridge, ping-pong table, darts, grill, and backpacks for hiking. Also behind the garage is a horseshoe court.

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.

There is plenty of fun awaiting in Estes in the winter. Eldora Ski Mountain Resort is only 44 miles South of Estes Park. Rocky Mountain National Park offers trails for snow shoeing, cross country skiing, sledding, horse back riding and downtown Estes is always decorated for the holidays.

There's plenty of room to accommodate your whole family! With a 'kid's loft' upstairs with 5 singles, there is a total of 11 bed spaces. There are 2 fold out couches too!

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.

This cabin was perfect for our family get together 6 adults and 4 little ones. Very accommodating !

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and great for our gathering! Owners very responsive, thank you Blaine. Loved Estes Park and the Stanley hotel, and the downtown located so close by. We had one day of snow so we all stayed in and played games. The next day was beautiful and we were greeted by a very large elk in the yard! Then off to explore the town. The kids loved the toy store and candy shop. The upstairs dormitory was a hit for the kids. We would love to come back in the summer. Thanks for sharing your cabin.

Owner's Response: Probably wouldn't rent again? I just read your review and ouch! I really want your feedback on how we can improve. I really want to know what was dirty. Our housekeeper does a great job and a haven't heard a complaint all summer. I was there three weeks ago and all was good. We just had the exterior repainted. All new appliances, tankless water heater, new mattress bedding, pillows, and the carpet is 3 years old. You never complained during your stay and we had a 5-star review the week before you. If you had a complaint I would've sent the housekeeper over to fix it. If you read our listing we never claimed to have a dishwasher. Never claimed to have timber or secluded. Our property is almost an acre with many large pine trees. We are very close to RMNP and downtown. We are in a great location. We have over 90 reviews and never heard blah. The images on our website say taken at RMNP or in our yard. We have wildlife almost every day in our yard. I'm really not sure what your electrical comment is about. Our home passed inspection when we bought the home 5 years ago. We want every family to have a great stay at our home.

Our 19th year at this cabin...and will continue to vacation here as long as we are able. Close to town with easy access to the Park...yet far enough away for a bit of down-time. So many opportunities to explore in Colorado and the never ending beauty.

Owner's Response: Awww! We love the history of this cabin and we are so happy you are back every year. You are so much like us! I feel like we have only explored 50% of what this park and town has to offer. You are always welcome!

Wonderfully Warm Experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the warmth of this family cabin in Estes. The outdoor seating was perfect for our 4th of July family cookout. The short walk to stores was perfect. The owners were attentive and available for questions. We saw deer from the front of the home each day!

We would definitely repeat our stay in this lovely home.
