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

AspenHaus 'Wanderer' is located in the Estes Park community of Aspen Brook with shared access to the Big Thompson River. From our cozy mountain home it's 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 less than 1/4 mile from AspenHaus Wanderer!!

Our 1,075 sq ft home has a main level vaulted great room which is an ideal gathering space...enjoy the ambiance of the gas log Colorado moss rock fireplace situated in a warm and inviting living room setting complete with an adjoining fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops 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 it through the pine trees along with the Continental Divide's Notchtop Mountain... 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, mule deer and wild turkeys!

The main floor bedroom has a king-sized bed with an adjoining full bath. Also on the main floor and adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry with full washer and dryer.

The second level of AspenHaus Wanderer has two bedrooms (a king bed in one and a combination queen/twin bunk in the other); sharing a full bathroom located off the loft hallway.

As our guest you will enjoy access to shared common fishing, picnic and playground areas along the Big Thompson river... all just a short walk from our cabin.

While you are at it you can 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 Wanderer is perfect in every way... not just another vacation rental but our perfect mountain home!

Of Note: AspenHaus Wanderer is down the road from AspenHaus Lodge (owned by our friends Mark and Sue Werder who will be facilitating your stay for us). We are all committed to providing you with the same ultimate Rocky Mountain experience you have come to know from AspenHaus!

About The Owner

We are life-long flat-landers (central Indiana) that discovered and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains well over 40 years ago. Our two daughters grew up hiking the trails in Rocky Mountain National Park on family vacations and we are delighted to see our 5 grandchildren now having that same experience with their parents. We are avid hikers (Wanderer!) and we enjoy the Park’s trails in boots or snow shoes. Many of our hikes begin right from the Wanderer’s doorstep and continue deep into the Park from trailheads less than ¼ mile away.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1993

Why The Owner chose Estes Park

We bought the cabin over 20 years ago because of the location. As they say “location – location – location”. RMNP is one of our country’s great hiking parks and from the cabin’s front deck you have the Big Thompson River, the YMCA of the Rockies, the National Park trails and the Dunraven Inn all within a short walk...with the Beaver Meadows entrance to the RMNP, the village center of Estes Park and some of our favorite restaurants all within a short drive. We knew immediately that AspenHaus 'Wanderer' was the one for our family!

What makes this cabin unique

While it’s a beautiful cabin that’s been entirely updated within the past couple of years the most significant benefit in our view is that you can walk directly into the RMNP or access the shuttle bus by foot to avoid summer traffic and delays! Come on up…park your car…and hit the trail. Or grab a good book and settle in on the deck to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Rocky Mountains.

This is our 12th year back to Estes Park and we loved the extra touch of kindness delivered by the caretakers of this wonderful cabin! From the emails with great information to the coffee waiting on our basket, the week was marked with above and beyond! Thanks for a great trip!!

Sister Trip '17

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The weather cooperated. The cabin was plenty big,and fully stocked.

We enjoyed playing games at the big dining room table,reading out on the deck,and hiking the trails at RMNP. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The only 2 things we suggest would be a grab bar in the downstairs bath/shower and a mirror with lighting in the bedroom. We found since 6 women had to get dressed at the same time,a mirror on the closet would have helped. I personally want to thank Sue for her concern when I got ill on the last day. I am on the mend,and doing fine. Thanks again for a wonderful and memorable trip with my sisters.

Excellent location and pristine accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This property was in an excellent location and in pristine condition. We loved every minute spent there. The ability to walk from the cabin into RMNP was such a convenience. Having all the cooking supplies and full kitchen was so great to be able to feed our family of 4. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to really enjoy Estes Park.

Wonderful House with EVERYTHING we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful!! We came with 5 teenagers to hike and play at RMNP for 4 days. Unfortunately, we got one day, then the "Great May snowstorm of 2017" hit and we were snowed in for a bit. The house is literally steps away from hiking in RMNP, and a short drive to the visitor center. It has a wonderful location to use as a basecamp for exploration. Even though we were snowed in for a couple days, we had everything needed to hang out for a few days. We were able to make our daughter a birthday cake on her 18th b-day, and there were plenty of games to play when the TV got old, or they got bored with their devices!! Although they did go out and build an igloo in the snow! Everything in the house worked well, and it was clean! The locally roasted coffee was a wonderful touch! Mark and Sue even stopped by to check on us to make sure all was well and we had power!

It was nice (on the first day!!) to have coffee on the deck and listen to the river and the birds singing. Very peaceful!

All in all, a wonderful stay. I would definitely stay here again as a base camp for all that Estes has to offer!!
