The cabin is located only miles from wild basin entrance to rocky mountain national park and roosevelt national forest where you can hike, fish, picnic, 4x4 and in general, get lost for an afternoon. Allenspark is a small mountain community with other log cabins and homes sprinkled around the area. The local businesses work hard to make guests and visitors feel at home and welcome....From horseback riding, massages, good food, local music, theater in the summer, there is plenty to do right in your backyard. Venture into estes and rocky mountain national park for more outdoor adventures!

 

Owner info

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!
