About Desra McDonald
A recent empty nest couple from Arizona with a thirst for adventure yearned for somewhere they could get back to nature, as a retreat from their busy professions, with visions dancing in their heads of bring their family together for hikes and holidays….. when their long time Colorado friends called about partnering on owning a real log cabin (already renovated for full time living) , next to Rocky Mountain Wilderness…. WOW, they were intrigued but once they saw this log cabin home in the mountains above Estes Park with the cascading creek flowing out back, they were enchanted and are now living happily ever after as partners sharing this dream with families & friends from all parts of the world.
Desra McDonald purchased this Cabin in 2015

Aspen Autumn Glory
Our experience at Cascading Creek was better than we could have ever imagined! The aspens were in the peak of their autumn glory! Jack and Desra have created the authenticity of an historic log cabin, but with all the modern comforts and conveniences. The cabin was immaculate, and it was apparent that they had anticipated the needs of their guests, giving every attention to detail. Thank you for sharing this log cabin with us! We hope to return!
Lovely mountain cabin
The cabin is in a great location to enjoy the mountains without the crowds. It is vintage but with modern amenities. If you are looking for a 5star hotel with lots of shopping and food within walking distance this is not the place for you. If you want to enjoy nature and the mountains in a charmingly decorated cabin then this one is your place
Peaceful and enchanting
I don’t think I could have found a better cabin for my Colorado trip! Set in an historic mountain locale, this cabin offers modern amenities while remaining an authentic (and great) mountain cabin. I loved sitting in the peaceful little grove in back and listening to the little mountain brook. The woodland walk also features lovely gardens. A very tranquil and beautiful setting overall. Yet this cabin is conveniently close to interesting towns like Lyons and Estes Park. I especially like that it is just a few miles from Wild Basin, my favorite area in Rocky Mountain National Park. I also greatly enjoyed driving the Peak to Peak Highway, which I regard as one of the most scenic in America.
I hope to return next year!
nobody does it better .... carly simon
That song came to mind. Nothing left out ... best appointed VRBO we have stayed in. Totally gracious, informative hosts.
Even though the cabin is between a highway and a business highway, I felt as if I was off in the deep forest. The porches and the little stream in back were perfect peaceful places to read my book and sip my coffee. We enjoyed our stay greatly!
Summer vacation in the Rocky Mountains
This cabin is everything I had hoped for in a cabin in the woods experience. The cabin was very clean and stocked with everything we could possibly need during our stay. The hosts went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. I am looking forward to coming back!
Make a break for the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and try something new this vacation! Enjoy authentic creekside log cabin living as you explore all there is to do!
Integrate yourself into the small Colorado mountain community of Allenspark, elevation 8,500ft on this vacation adventure. Our neighborhood is full of other unique cabins and cottages. There is a sweet little cafe half mile up the road, where you can enjoy delicious breakfasts and lunches. Also in town is a fresh water spring, a pizzaria, an antique - gift shop and community center where local happenings are always taking place.
We are mindful and respect the wildlife that abounds here and shares our neck of the woods.
Your cabin retreat is about 2 hours north of Denver, 15 miles from Lyons, 20 miles Estes Park and 10 miles from Wild Basin / Rocky Mountain National Park.
