We drove up from Castle Rock, Colorado after visiting with my Sister and her family for a few days and were stunned by the beauty of this mountain home..Restful, relaxing, nicely appointed and well planned are the words we would use to describe this place we called home for a few days. Convenient to town and really convenient to one of the main gates of the Rocky Mountain National Park. The Stanley Hotel was on our to do list and we had a wonderful time there and afterwords we found our way down to Lake Estes where a couple of herds of elk were wandering about. When we returned to the cabin there was evidence that the elk had visited our driveway..Later on we were enjoying the hot tub on the back deck when a group of mule deer strolled by within arms reach of the back deck..This for us is what we came here for..Nature at its best and our thanks and sincere appreciation go out to the owners, Ed and Shayne, for providing such a wonderful place as this for the enjoyment of others. We hope to return again some day soon..
