Enjoy a mountain lake with lakefront rental by Estes Park

Located on the northern edge of Colorado is the statutory town of Estes Park. It primarily serves as the headquarters for Rocky Mountain National Park, so you'll find no shortage of lake Colorado cabins in the area. Lake Estes' shoreline stretches around 4 miles, and there are quite a few cabins along those shores ranging from affordable rentals to luxurious accommodations that can serve as a satisfying home away from home. The lake itself is a reservoir, so you can also visit the impressive Olympus Dam.

 
Things to do

Attractions near Estes Park vacation rentals

If you want a day off from the trails, there is plenty to do near your Estes Park vacation rental. Motoring aficionados shouldn't miss the Stanley Steam Car Museum, which houses a beautiful collection of century-old steam vehicles dating as far back as 1905. If you love all things equestrian, you can swing by Sombrero Ranch and be a cowboy or cowgirl for a day. Wearing the classic wide-brimmed hat is mandatory, or at least should be. You can complement it with a morning at the MacGregor Ranch Museum, a working farm dating back to the 1870s.

Activities

Activities during your stay in Estes Park vacation homes

The Rocky Mountain National Park provides a playground for outdoor adventures. Whether you're coming for a couple getaway or bringing the family on an adventure vacation, the vast national park is ready to be explored by all. If you like to hike, there are few places as inspiring as the Rockies, a landscape of ragged granite peaks carpeted by conifers and punctuated by azure mountain lakes. Alternatively, you can saddle up your horse to trot along the equestrian routes or hop in your car and drive up Trail Ridge Road, the highest paved highway in the US.

Weather

Local weather for your trip to Estes Park getaway cabins

If you're looking to explore the Rockies without the below-freezing temperatures, try to nab an Estes Park vacation rental between June and September when the snowmelts have all but disappeared and the trails become accessible once again. That said, if you like the idea of visiting a winter wonderland, the colder months see far fewer vacationers and you can hit the mountains with snowshoes or cross-country skis. There might be less wildlife to spot, but the landscape is arguably at its most scenic. The toasty log fires at your Estes Park vacation rental will await you on your return.

Natural features

Estes Park wildlife

If you travel at the right time, it's unlikely that any day spent in the Rocky Mountain National Park won't result in spotting the odd critter or 2. Herds of mule deer are common, as are sightings of chipmunks. Visit at the right time and you can spot elk rutting during mating season, a wonderfully photogenic scene in the early morning mist. The eagle-eyed might spot bighorn sheep or coyotes on the mountain ridges, while hawks circle overhead in search of prey below. Those that like watching wildlife won't come away disappointed.
