About the Property
Two Bedrooms, Two Baths in Two Adorable Cabins
This unique rental has two separate cabins on one property, each with one bedroom, one bath, and living area. The larger "Smiling Elk" has a full modern kitchen with a wonderful gas stove, full bath, queen bed, sleeper sofa, washer/dryer, and a wood-burning fireplace. Free wi-fi and a flat-screen TV with Direct TV complete the package. We provide all linens, towels, a stocked kitchen, and toiletries. The kitchen includes coffee, tea, paper goods, and all the pots and pans you may need. There is also a crock pot so you can have dinner ready and waiting when you return from a long day's hike.
The smaller and adorable "Little Bear" has a partial kitchen (sink, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker), 3/4 bath with tiled shower, two twin beds, and a sleeper sofa. This cabin also has a flat-screen TV and free internet.
This property is ideal for couples, friends, or small families. It is situated near the west side of town, with easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park, yet only three miles from downtown. Several restaurants, coffee shops, miniature golf, and groceries are within walking distance. A free shuttle to downtown stops at the resort next door every hour, so you could leave the driving to others and just enjoy the ride.
Enjoy a backyard BBQ on the gas grill, or visit Smokin' Dave's BBQ and Baba's Burgers, two local favorites. Coffee on the Rockds is open early if you prefer to have your coffee prepared for you. All of these are just down the street and around the corner. Country Market has groceries, gas, and great ice cream. The well-known Dunraven Inn restaurant is a short drive to the west, accessible without navigating the downtown traffic.
If these cabins aren't available the dates you desire, please check out our other property that's right downtown - VRBO # 471009 - Riverwalk Loft Condos.
We look forward to being your hosts for your stay in Estes Park!

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Scott and Karen Thompson live and work in Estes Park; Scott as a real estate consultant and Karen as an executive assistant at Town Hall. We have lived in Estes Park almost nine years, but like many, have been visiting the area since childhoood. Giving back to the community is important to us, and we especially enjoy volunteering for local events like the Estes Park Duck Race, Elk fest, and Catch the Glow Parade. We have two adult daughters and enjoy hiking and serving others in our spare time.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
We do our best to provide our guests with very clean accommodations, and will go the extra mile to make your stay special. it is our desire to make your stay with us so enjoyable that you will return, and feel comfortable referring your friends and relatives to stay at Little Bear Cottages or Riverwalk Loft Condos (VRBO 471009). We truly appreciate your patronage, and hope we have met all your needs.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Enjoy your morning coffee on the east-facing front porch, soaking up the Colorado sunshine. With close to 300 days of sunshine a year and a sky more blue than you'll ever see (and thousands of stars by night), Estes Park is full of natural beauty. Events in town are just minutes away (remember that free shuttle), and the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is less than two miles away. Having two separate cabins allows couples or friends to have private accommodations, while being able to share meals and relax in either cabin. Older children would enjoy being independent in their "own" cabin, while the parents can supervise from a short distance away in the main residence.
