About the Property
Quaint Riverfront Property, 3 Beds, 1 Bath Mountain Views, Horsehoes
Quaint riverfront cabin built in early 1900's. 3 beds, 1 bath, fully stocked kitchen and linens. Sit on the screened in porch and read from the small library of books while swinging on the porch swing. Enjoy the big yard that abuts the St. Vrain River. Watch as the hummingbirds buzz all around. Play horseshoes right next to the river. If you are visiting in the cooler months enjoy a fire indoors in the fireplace insert.
There is also plenty to do if you are done relaxing. Head up the road to Allenspark (7 mi) or Estes Park (20 mi) and enjoy a variety of amenities from small a mountain town museum in Allenspark or the locally renown Fawn Brook Inn restaurant. Estes host many attractions to include shopping, restaurants, The Stanley Hotel (the inspiration for Stephen King's 'The Shining'). Take the ghost tour or enjoy the fabulous Sunday brunch. Estes is also the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, one of our country's gems!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We reside in Boulder, CO and enjoy spending time at 'The Little Cabin that did'. We call it that because even though it sits just steps from the St. Vrain river, it survived the Colorado flood of 2013 that devastated much of the area, with not a scratch. Please browse through 'A Thousand Year Rain' a book that depicts the severe damage (and great courage) of the events of the flood when you visit the cabin. We offer the cabin to travelers as it was meant to be shared and enjoyed by many.
Why the Owner Chose Lyons, CO, USA:
Spending time next to the river is so calming and the town and surround area have so much history both in the properties in the area and the local towns and attractions. You can sit and enjoy the river and mountain views and read and relax during your stay or you can go explore the area, be it in the bustling town of Estes, or hiking near Brainard Lake, or biking the mountain roads.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
'The Little Cabin that did' is unique for its large riverfront access along with its rustic log construction. It has all the amenities of home and a beautiful old fashioned stove nestled in the kitchen. The screened in porch calls for you to sit and drink your morning coffee from the porch swing. You are secluded, but can go adventure close by.
