This charming mountain town of Allenspark is full of year around residents as well as seasonal cabins. You can see other cabins from your cabin and are on your own full acre of creekside property with views of the creek, pine, aspen and mountain to enjoy.
Less than a mile from the cabins is Highlands Presbyterian property, with access to a gorgeous nature trail, zip line, archery and low ropes courses (call ahead to reserve).
"In town" you'll find a fresh water spring to load up water bottles en route to all your activities, the Meadow Mt Cafe serving up memorable breakfasts and lunches, Distant Harbors gift and antique store. You can also enjoy various activities at The Old Gallery...from yoga to soup supers on Tuesday nights, local art for sale or classes, you are welcome to stop by and see what is going on here, by the fire station.
Allenspark's hallmark is that we are surrounded by Roosevelt National Forest, abounding in trails for hiking or running / mountain biking / 4x4 / snowshoeing / cross country skiing. Enjoy Ski Rd., Trail 932, Allenspark Trail, Bunce School Rd. to name a few.
There are a number of annual events that make Allenspark special: The 4th of July Parade
(which will go right by the cabins, a total stitch), Run Like the Wind 5k trail foot race also in July, and
June is full of musical plays at The Old Gallery.
Not far, you can still Go Explore so much more! See my website and the Go Explore tab for many of our ideas and links to our favorite spots.
Peak time of year to view the change of leaves in the fall is mid-September, don't miss it!
WINTER mountain log cabin living is magical and an adventure! Check out the great off season winter cabin rates.
Skiing is only 45 minutes away at Nederland and Eldora Resort. Sled, snow shoe or cross country ski at Rocky Mountain National Park.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Friends and family have poured countless hours into cleaning and refurbishing this cabin to make it what you see today. Great care has been put into the property by these fine people to fix things big (electric, dry walling, plumbing) and small (spring on the back door, little feet under the refrigerator) and all has been worked on out of hearts of love. Back in the day, we started a road trip tradition...to find the best places ever for what we would call, "fish & camp"adventures. Gradually over the years, we found ourselves returning to the rockies where we decided our "fish and camp" adventures needed a headquarters....and what a better home base than an authentic log cabin to call home while you explore and experience all there is to do in this gorgeous place we call our backyard, the Rocky Mountains!
Why the Owner Chose Allenspark, CO, USA:
We've named the rooms and many property features after all the fine role models and mentors in our lives. You'll learn more about them when you stay with us. Our Promise... is to provide a memorable place where you and your family can experience an adventure of a lifetime!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Nothing like sitting on the back deck listening to the sounds of the creek while you read a book and drink hot chocolate in the morning; nothing like building a tent out of a sheet and some sticks so you can picnic and color with your kids on a sunny afternoon by the creek; nothing like listening to and watching all the hummingbirds of Allenspark swirl around the birdfeeders; nothing like watching chippy (this is who we call our resident chipmunk, and all his family members) scurry around the big pine tree and sit beside you on the front porch. There is just something about staying in a real log cabin on a creek that evokes the spirit of adventure. As Del Gue from the movie Jeramiah Johnson once said, "these here (the rocky mountains) is god’s finest sculpturins...I'll be a mountain man until the day i die." Let the adventures begin!
