NO CLEANING FEES- This is a owner operated cabin business. We (the owners) clean the cabins and ensure that the guests get the best experience during their stay. Most cabin owners charge exorbitant cleaning fees and pass these costs to you . We do NOT charge cleaning fees since we want to give the most economical rates to our guests. However, we expect guests to leave the cabin in the same condition they found it. This means that the cabin is left reasonably clean (garbage appropriately disposed, refrigerators and ovens cleaned) and it does not take us more than 3 hours to clean the cabin for the next guests.
CALENDAR and AVAILABILITY- Please go to bottom 3rd of this page and look for 'Links to more information:' section immediately after 'Contact us' section and before the 'Photos' section. Click the link 'AVAILABILITY and ONLINE Booking'. YOU WILL SEE THE MOST UP TO DATE CALENDAR AND MAKE YOUR OWN RESERVATION ON THIS CALENDAR. The Calendar you see during the booking is CURRENT TO THE MINUTE. YOU DO NOT NEED TO CONFIRM THE AVAILABILITY WITH US. If the calender days are showing GREEN, it means if the dates are open. If you BOOK on the available dates, you have SECURED the reservation for those dates. It is first come, first served. If you have issues with booking online, please email us and we will send you a link with the dates to make online booking easier.
THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING in this CABIN. However, this cabin is located by the river and inside the canyon that remain cool even during hot summer days. We have windows that open, and fans that allow guests to enjoy the fresh mountain air.

Historic 1920's Riverfront vacation cottage in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Located just outside downtown Estes Park on the banks of the Big Thompson River. Picturesque surroundings with towering Ponderosa pines, the Canyon, and the Big Thompson river!
Decorated tastefully in a seashell and nautical theme, you will enjoy this newly decorated abode. The bathroom is graced with a claw foot tub and shower.
A picnic area is provided in front of the cottage beside the river. The Big Thompson River is very wide at this point and there is even a small island in the middle right in front of the property. There is a family of ducks living at this point in the river. It is known to be one of the best fly fishing areas too and you have private entry to the river!
Behind the cabin, there is steeper terrain with many rock outcropping, very scenic! A very large rock formation can be found to the right rear of the cabin. Beautiful scenery from every single window.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Drake, CO, USA:
We chose this beautiful location to buy a cabin as it was next to a large, rushing river and surrounded by towering Ponderosa Pines.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our property is unique as there are not many original 1920's cottages left in the area. From the light fixtures the claw foot tub, you won't find another like it!
