About the Property
3 Bedroom Home with mountain and river views, Sleeps 7 (6 adults)
'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 around...no 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!

The Rocky Mountain National Park Beaver Meadows entrance is within 2 miles of AspenHaus Cabin. Walk into the RMNP from trailheads which are 1/4 mile away.
Year Purchased: 1993
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.
Why the Owner Chose Aspen Brook, Estes Park, CO, USA:
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!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
