Property description

All season Redemption Cabin is a "smart" historical cabin where its guests feel pampered and challenged, refreshed and inspired.

It affords travelers the unique opportunity to experience authentic mountain village life and endless outdoor adventure from one easily-accessible place.

Inside the cabin you are transported to a simpler, quieter time. It's a storybook experience of search and discovery. The cabin is cozy, comfortable and private. Without pretense, it presents first-class character at every detail. Consistent in theme, its' tome includes brave expeditions by 19th century American figures.

Outdoors, a feeling of romantic loveliness permeates Redemption's crisp mountain air. You are caught in a poetic picture, an eloquent hymn, a sublime garden all arranged with infinite care, an ancient anthem composed to worship the creator. Fresh verses come to mind that renew and sustain. So says Rick, in the likes of Emerson, Burroughs, Muir, Mills, Fogelberg, and their kindred rendered speechless by the gentleness and grandeur of the surrounding snowcapped massifs and forested steeps, the deeply cut granite gorges and chaos canyons, the winding streams and hanging alpine lakes. Never feeling so strong and alive as from a rocky perch high in the sky. Always looking for the wind, always searching for the forks of uncertain trails below. Freedom like most never know.

Redemption Cabin is a "perfect mix of location and amenities." See what other guests say at the end of our introduction.

It is best suited for singles, couples, friends (up to 3 adults), and small families (up to 4) seeking adventure, revival, or natural escape.

Redemption resides in a picture perfect natural setting. Bright sunny mornings. Moonlit evenings. The cabin is sheltered under the rocky crags and cliffs of Little Prospect Mountain (southern tip of downtown Estes Park) where the merger of two famous snow-fed mountain streams begins. The cabin is east riverside on the Big Thompson leg. The area is travelled by feet, bikes, horse drawn carriages, cars, tubes, canoes, and kayaks.

It has a mature natural landscape with lumpy boulders and rocky ridges, old growth trees, dappled sunlight, singing birds, roaming wildlife, and rushing sounds of emerald water as clear and cold as the high-mountain glaciers that feed it. Rainbow trout included. For more, read Redemption's Neighborhood.

The Cabin is fully stocked with important details. The kitchen, beds, bath and comfort amenities are all new. We provide all the essentials and more, pantry supplies, kitchen condiments, teas and coffee, luxury hotel towels & linens, special lighting, and high ranking finishes throughout. Not to be missed, Rick also shares his private collection of navigational maps and adventure books, fly fishing gear, mountain bike, and top area picks.

The Hosts keep the cabin exceptionally clean, Eco-friendly, and smoke-free.

With Redemption, you also get a "great walkable location". Getting downtown is a simple downstream stroll along a cabin filled lane. There you will find the best of our local attractions, festivals, restaurants, coffee houses, wineries, craft beer breweries, retail shopping, green parks, outdoor concerts, riverwalks, hiking paths, and other exciting places to be active or quiet.

We invite you to experience Redemption and it's spectacular environment, unforgettable moments, and perfect rest. We will do all we can to insure your senses are ignited, body refreshed, heart rejuvenated, and your life perfectly reset; the promise of Redemption at its best.

Redemption's rates are discounted below comparable luxury properties.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will respond within 24 hours. As always, you may email or call us directly to book safely, securely and accurately.

To reserve your time at Redemption Cabin, send us a short note about you and your traveling companions.

Estes Park, CO

CABIN HISTORY- - - Circa 1914, Redemption Cabin has had a storied existence. It's living history. The cabin logs were harvested, hauled to site, cut, stacked, spiked & chinked into walls by pioneers in the likes of John Cleave- the Park's first permanent merchant, Enos Mills- the naturalist credited as the Father of Rocky Mountain National Park, and F.O. Stanley- the industrialist, co-inventor of the Stanley Steamer and visionary who had a big hand in shaping Estes Park as it is today. Despite all the change of the past 100 years, Redemption Cabin, shroud in nature's glory & simple humility, is still one of the most wild and beautiful places anywhere.

Both Redemption and RMNP just celebrated their 100 year anniversaries.

CABIN NEIGHBORHOOD - - - Redemption Cabin is in the midst of endless adventure, born out of a picture perfect one-of-a-kind prime natural setting. We have easy access to the best of Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park and surrounding vicinity. It is located in the historic section of the Estes village. It backs up to the rocky crags and cliffs of Little Prospect Mountain and fronts the last bend of the Big Thompson River before it becomes one with the Fall River shortly downstream. Both rivers are sparkling snow-fed streams that have their beginnings high up on the snowy Continental Peaks. Spring run-off peaks between June 6 and the 13th. The rivers flow to the sound of white water all year round. Energetic Rainbow trout school in sandy holes above and below.

This Mountain Life is walkable in every direction. Getting to the Downtown Commercial District and the best venues and restaurants Estes Park has to offer is a downstream stroll north along a cabin filled lane. The Historic Clatworthy Studio, Aerial Tramway to the peak of Prospect Mountain, and Eagles Landing Restaurant are upstream to our immediate South. Piccadilly Square, Rock Cut Tap House, Estes Angler, Hunan’s Chinese Restaurant, Day Salon, Fun City, the Donut Haus, Sweet Basilico Italian Restaurant, Rock Climbing School, Estes Park Microbrewery, out door climbing gym, Smokin' Dave’s BBQ and more are another short walk up and around the bend.

Entrance into Rocky Mountain National Park, its wilderness, alpine lakes, trails and more spectacular scenery is just a few miles west.

Good times are all around. Great mountain vistas also surround. Backyard or back country, wildlife is unsurpassed --- colorful trout, song birds, chipmunks, rabbits, raptors, bobcat, turkey, deer, elk, black bear & moose all hang around.

… Estes Park is a relaxing high mountain resort famous for its parks, cascading rivers, wildlife viewing, heart pounding vistas, outdoor recreation, good times & family friendly values. It is the only place you need to go to enjoy a vacation of a lifetime. It is a unique small town that can put you in touch with big nature and real Colorado. Each season is flush with magnificent days.

… Rocky Mountain National Park is one of America’s crown jewels and offers endless exploring, hiking, backpacking, camping, fly fishing, rock climbing, wildlife viewing, photo taking, snowshoeing, and back country skiing.

Other Amenities

  • Estes is all about the sights & sounds of its two spectacular rivers and mountain top adventures. Redemption Cabin is one of the best sites to experience them all. The headwaters of the Big Thompson River begin in Forest Canyon within Rocky Mountain National Park. The river flows east through Moraine Park to the town of Estes Park. Bending north just before it reaches Redemption, it heads to the center of Town. Then at Confluence Park it bends back East, and together with Fall River, gives the beautiful Riverwalk its name. About a ½ a mile on, its waters are held in Lake Estes by the Olympus Dam before being released into the Big Thompson Canyon. We are also a Home of Champions. Estes Park’s first state champion tree, a balsam poplar (Populus Balsamifera) stands just outside on an open bank of the Big Thompson River. Fall colors are spectacular....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Rick & Cheryl Grigsby first discovered Estes Park in 1983 and returned year after year whenever they could. During the Fall of 1997, they moved to the Estes Valley on sabbatical from 'private practice' in Texas & Oklahoma. Curiously, they never went back; at least not on their love for the Park's picture-perfect natural settings and diverse backdrops for their adventure-filled faith-based lives. Cheryl raised their 3 kids and exercised her gift of teaching. By late 2000, they had designed & built a mountain home exacting to its rocky terrain and their growing young family. Each day began with a new morning. By the Spring of 2009, Rocky Mountain Memories had taken physical form. After the Park Theatre Fire, and then again after the 2013 Estes Park Floods, they rebuilt. Like RMM, Redemption Cabin represents their creativity, attention to detail, gifts of hospitality and faith. Rick and Cheryl will serve as your caretakers and guides. He is an avid hiker. She is artsy. They both are creative.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
'Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.' John Muir

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Property is a great place for quiet times & solitude. Or, for the active outdoorsman, it doubles as a great base camp to experience Estes Park & Rocky Mountain National Park at their fullest. Glorious mountain vistas, rocky crags & outcrops, trees, rivers, birds, wildlife, treasured collection of maps, books, art & outdoors sporting gear are all around.
