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!
The area also supports hiking, biking, and water activities from tubing and rafting to fishing.
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.
PJ Lahn purchased this cabin in 2011
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 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.
Offers everything for total relaxation. The porch is awesome with fantastic books. We stayed in July and opened windows and needed blankets at night. The sound of the river was so nice.
There were more houses closer than we thought there would b but never an issue. Felt completely alone. Can't wait to go back in the snow and use the unreal fireplace.
The Howard family needed a relaxing time away from our phones, digital media and the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We achieved this and thoroughly enjoyed the charm and ambiance of the cabin and all the remote property had to offer. The Log cabin on the river is located so close to the river that literally four steps out the back door and you are on the river bank. The South Saint Vrain river is a clean fast moving mountain stream that roars past the cabin across boulders of all shapes and sizes. Sitting on the bank, on the screened in porch, or on the patio furniture each provide beautiful and unique vantages of this beautiful natural setting. Every evening we cooked dinner on the grill, on the stove and used the microwave to create dinners fit for royalty. then, built a fire in the fire pit, and made SMORES. The owners supplied firewood and matches, and a water bucket for fire safety. The kitchen is fully functional with gas range and oven, large refrigerator and a serious collection of pots pans and utensils. We used paper plates for most meals just because we don't like to do dishes, but if you do there are dishes for every type of meal and serving you may need. The bathroom was an especially pleasant surprise. Most of the properties nearby have outhouses or old tiny bathrooms, by contrast, this cabin has a modern bathroom with a shower that is fed hot water continuously from a gas powered tank-less hot water heater. The owners provided bottled water in 5 gallon containers (3) for drinking and cooking in case you did not like the taste of the well water. We used the well water for everything but drinking and did not have any problems. We drove to Estes and Lyons several times to explore, fish and enjoy the wildlife. the cabin is conveniently located for these activities. Our son and daughter from Denver fell in love with the cabin and plan to come back with their friends soon. If you are looking to unwind and immerse yourself in a log cabin in the woods on a river, this property is a very good choice.
