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.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is older and basic, but very clean and has everything you will need! The best part about the cabin is it's location. You feel very secluded, yet you are plenty close to the center of town and the Rocky Mountain National Park. The area immediately surrounding the cabin is breathtaking. You can't beat the price for a cabin right in the mountains. Also, Steve is extremely responsive and easy to work with. This was our second visit to the cabin and if I had more money and more vacation time, I would come here every year! We will definitely be back someday!

Intensive Care was a terrific getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Best parts of this wonderful getaway were the elk that were frequently grazing nearby, and freedom from annoying telephones and television. The quiet solitude was refreshing. Everything in the cabin worked well, and the two beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the pleasant walks through the YMCA property, and beibg able to be in RMNP with only a quick ride. Groceries and any other necessities were also only a quick ride away.

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.
