We realize that this is a cabin out in the wilderness near Rocky Mountain National Forest. We make sure we have everything we can think of to provide you with all those small things that you can't buy on every trip. The new crockpot is great for cooking a roast while your out hiking or laying by the pool. You will never wake up in the morning without a good cup of coffee to enjoy while you look out at the nature and mountains. NOTE: with 8 person or more, water becomes an issue. Laundry is the biggest culprit. We do have a extra water tank for summers.

Picturesque views with endless luxury amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the perfect picture of fall. Driving up the,all the leaves are changing,the river was rushing and the large cabin was just nestled perfectly in the canyon. It couldn't have been more beautiful. I came here for an Autumn visit and couldn't have been more pleased.Owners provided, PLENTY of wood for cozy cracking fires. They have a heated pool that we swam in under the stars,a massive hot tub and beautiful wood sauna that is built directly into the canyon side with panoramic views. They provide delicious coffee , and I love taking a steaming cup outside in the morning while watching the rushing river. Great way to start the day. There is so much to do in the area,but I honestly never wanted to leave. This is not a place to just sleep at night,this is an all out experience. Every normal activity turns into something special. Taking a shower in their massive walk in shower built around the actual canyon stones is WILD. It's like a subterranean luxury spa from another planet. The entire house,even the patio is connected with a booming Sonos system which is great when swimming or soaking outside. The beds are even more comfortable than home! We were even able to listen to records in our room. Pool table downstairs, and horse shoes in the picnic area outside too! Such a gem,will definitely be back.

Perfect Weekend Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We went on a couple's trip over the long weekend, and the cabin was perfect! It was very clean and had all the amenities you could want. The road closure was a little inconvenient, but the pilot cars drive past often enough that we never had to wait long. The cabin is very close to downtown Estes Park, which was great! None of us had cell phone reception in the cabin, but the cabin has Wifi. Clare provided all the information we needed, gave great ideas for what to do in the area, and was very responsive. We would love to come back again!

Outstanding Cabin out of town

  • 5 of 5

I had the great pleasure to stay at the Big Thompson Pool Cabin for a week this February and could not have been happier. The cabin is clean, warm, well appointed and has a well stocked kitchen with all the gadgets you need to create an awesome meal. The construction on Rt34 was not an issue, and we only had to wait to pass about 5 minutes at any time. If you're looking to get into nature, away from the "big city" of Estes Park, this is the place for you.

Exciting but surprising

  • 4 of 5

We loved everything about cabin. The only thing that needs to be clarified is the location of small river. It’s across the street from cabin, and steep to get to. The cabins location is by street. The mountain is practically hugging cabin from behind. You have no 22 acres to explore unless you go mountain climbing. So , practically your enclosed in your cabin space.

Owner's Response: Our beautiful Big Thompson River will be back to its full capacity and width when the road and river repairs are complete this spring. Unfortunately this is something we must go through in the area due to the devastation floods of 2013. George, If you visit our area again, please be honest about party size and type of event. Thank you, Clare

About Clare

Colorado is in my blood and I've always wanted my own home in the mountains. Now I finally have it. I cannot live in it now, so I want to share it. I love this Cabin, Rustic, with all the comforts you could ever want.

Clare purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Clare chose Drake

This is the most amazing, private home and is on 2 National Forests. Rocky Mountain National Forest meets our property on the back side and Roosevelt National Forest is in the front where the Big Thompson River runs through the canyon and is only footsteps away. It is in one of the most beautiful areas near Estes Park. Our amazing full sized heated pool is very unusual for the mountains and almost unheard of. Come and let us show you.

What makes this cabin unique

Where can you go find a 4 huge bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, including an amazing cedar shower with 3 shower heads, fireplace, pool table, 7 man hot tub, mountain side deck and heat sauna, on the river with mountain views. Where can you find all this for under 200 a night. Right here at Big Thompson Pool Cabin! We provide everything, you just bring your clothes and food. We even have fishing poles. Our heated pool opens April 15th. Come and see us location on 2 national forest lands including RMNP in the back of our property and Roosevelt National Park in the front.

Our cabin is private. There are no neighbors in site. Our Sonos Stereo System both inside and out provides an amazing atmosphere of peace, tranquility - as does the mountain side heat/steam sauna. Do as you wish, turn the music up by the pool, bother no - one. Swim all night if you wish. There's no place like it in all of Estes.

There's nothing like Barbecuing, watching the kids swim, listening to a good song on the stereo and looking up at the majestic mountains.

Catch and keep fishing, Plenty of great Mountain and river views. Mountain Goats, Elk, and Black Bears can be seen occasionally in woods around the house.

Just relax in the wonderful bedrooms, with Flat Screen TVs/with cable in every room bedroom. It is amazing!!

We are 10 miles from Estes Park in the Big Thompson Canyon. We have the river and the Canyon in front of us running through the Roosevelt National Forest; which our cabin is on. If you hike up the back of the property, you will hike onto the portion of our land where it meets The Rocky Mountain National Forest land. This is one of the most beautiful spots in Estes. I was concerned about the traffic at first. Now I just don't hear it unless I go out to sit and watch it and think how I used to sit and wish I had a cabin like that. It just feels so private that you feel very safe.
