About Janet Newman Ali at PineCone Cottage

I have always dreamed of owning a rental cottage. When I was a child, I used to stay in the deep woods of Northern Michigan. These were the fondest memories of my life. I always adored the historic rental cabins that I saw on my trip. Providing a unique, memorable accommodation to make your vacation even more special has been a lifelong goal of mine. I also teach piano.

Janet Newman Ali at PineCone Cottage purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Janet Newman Ali at PineCone Cottage chose Front Range

We bought this vacation rental for the mountain views, its privacy, acreage (1.78 acres) and proximity to Rocky National Mountain park and the town and attractions of Estes Park.

We looked for two years and know this was "the one" when we saw the amazing mountain views rising on all sides. It feels closer to heaven.

What makes this cottage unique

1300 square foot historic craftsman miners' style cottage with the best views in Estes Park! The 1.78 acre lot is one of the largest vacation rental lots in Estes. Decorated in old world style with a modern flair. New kitchen and granite countertops. Perched on the mountainside with two large bedrooms.

Spectacular panoramic 360 degree views cannot even be captured fully on film. 10 foot rock formation just behind cottage. Nighttime stars are unparalleled. You have the feeling of literally being surrounded by Rocky Mountains.

The property is frequented by white tailed deer, mule deer, elk, hummingbirds, and coyote on a daily basis. We occasionally see bobcats and other wildlife. 5 Minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park, 5 Minute drive to the Estes Park downtown and 1 minute drive to quiet Mary's Lake Recreation and Picnic area or a 10 minute walk.

Story Book Cabin: Beautiful views, fresh air, and the perfect getaway !!

  • 5 of 5

We felt we were in a story book cabin. Evergreens and Pineones everywhere. A hint of christmas was in the air, no matter what season.

We stayed here for 3 days for a wedding, and it was close to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). We hiked, saw many animals, and had a wonderful time with the family and friends.

Beautiful views, fresh air, and the perfect getaway !!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Pinecone Cottage. Once we arrived, we didn't want to leave! The views are amazing, and the cottage is equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It is close to RMNP and to restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay here again.

Proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) and downtown Estes Park can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Pine Cone cottage. The proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) and downtown Estes Park can't be beat. The cottage itself was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We saw several deer, rabbits and many birds around the cottage; a neighbour told us that a bear has been seen nearby. We highly recommend staying at Pinecone cottage.

The Cabin as as beautiful as the nature around it

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Your cabin as as beautiful as the nature around it. Sunsets and waking up to these mountains has been very enjoyable. Up here I noticed when you sit still nature opens up to you, and once open she just starts showing off. Thanks again and hope to come back.

Great Visit!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Pine Cone Cottage. The cottage is located on a hill/mountain side on approximately 2 acres of rustic land. If you are looking for solitude, this is the place. The views, lack of street noise, beautiful sunsets and glorious stars at night were just what these city gals needed. The cabin is close to RMNP and downtown, it is well stocked and very quaint. We enjoyed our stay very much and would stay there again if/when we return to Estes Park.

Beautiful Location and Views. The "extras" were a wonderful surprise (water, discount card, and toiletries). The cabin is charming and comfortable. We made friends with an injured elk who visited us everyday.

Thanks
