About Steve

Our Family vacationed every year in Estes Park, staying at the YMCA of the Rockies. Dad stumbled upon this property while exploring the area. Originally, the intention was to buy 7.5 acres, but survey revealed that cabin was set over the property line, thus purchased 11 more acres that the property currently rests on. The well water comes from a mountain spring that provides pure delicious drinking.

Steve purchased this cabin in 1977

Why Steve chose Estes Park

As a place for families to gather, this place has special meaning to many of those who have stayed here. Wildlife abounds as they move up and down the nearby Wind River. Here Aspen, Spruce, Ponderosa, lodgepole pines and fauna change with the seasons, never looking quite like the same space each time you visit. Hike up the river to hidden mountain meadows, serene lakes and breathtaking views starting from the doorstep.

What makes this cabin unique

Many travelers take advantage of the YMCA of the Rockies many activities including swimming (indoor pool), horseshoes, craft center, tennis, miniature golf, zip lining, library, disc golf, talks around a fire, to name a few. visit http://ymcarockies.org for full details.

You will feel as though you are in a secluded cabin, million miles from anywhere and yet have downtown Estes Park a mere 5 mile drive. This is set in and among natures finest with fresh clean air and water as natural as intended.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Great location, even better views. Super nice being so close to Estes Park/RMNP and yet far enough away to enjoy the solitude and quiet of nature. Fun to watch the 18 turkeys walk within11 feet of us as we relaxed on the Adirondack chairs. Inside accommodations were as described, clean and felt like 'home'. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us.

Wonderful location

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful location; very quiet and lots of wildlife. The furniture, linen, towels and cutlery are very outdated and some of these things should be replaced.

Perfectly Named: Intensive Care!

  • 5 of 5

I secured this cabin along with the larger one for our mini family reunion! It was the perfect size to accommodate those family members that were our "early birds" and those that wanted to take a Nap during the day...much like Intensive Care patients who need their rest!

Nice Fire Pit area with plenty of seating for everyone outdoors. We really enjoyed our stay.

Located within YMCA of the Rockies and neighbors Rocky Mountain National Park. Trails begin outside the door. Take a short hike along Wind River and watch beaver, stumble across deer eating berries from bushes or an elk or moose feeding. Aspen and giant spruce abound in this ever changing valley.

The YMCA facilities may be accessed by anyone who is a member of their local YMCA or a small daily fee can be paid. The "Y" offers programs for kids to entertain and educate them throughout the week. Horseback riding, mini golf, frisbee golf, indoor pool, craft shop and many other activities welcome you. Stop into the Administration building and ask for the weeks program to see what interests you.

A more extensive hike may be had following Wind River up to waterfalls, grassy meadows and the twinkling of the aspen trees. Lily lake can be accessed and set up a point to look over the town of Estes Park & Lake Estes.

Emerald mountain is steep but affords a great vantage point of where you are staying and the area around it. Going over or around it affords you greater access to some of the more popular destinations within Rocky Mountain National Park.
