WILD CREEK LODGE

Allenspark Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Colorado custom log home situated on 20 isolated acres on the edge of the Rocky Mountain National Park and the North St. Vrain Creek.

With Mount Meeker towering overhead there is convenient access to trails leading up to waterfalls, high mountain lakes, glaciers and fields of wildflowers. Hiking downstream one can fish for wild native trout through a protected 10 mile canyon. Otherwise sit beside the roaring creek and read, write or paint amongst the deer, elk, ouzel and fluttering aspen.

Walk back through the woods to the lodge and join the folks who never left the cozy Tulakivi fireplace surrounded by ancient Ingelman Spruce and vaulted ceiling gazing out onto the forest and fourteen thousand foot Mt. Meeker. Enjoy barbeque on the sun-bathed deck or quietly around the candlelit table while the kids rampage downstairs on the bunks, ping-pong table and watch movies.

Fall asleep to the sound of tumbling waters and a canopy of stars.

Awaken to the pink hues of dawn cascading down the sleeping Mountain.

After several days of wilderness experience, drive 20 minutes into the resort town of Estes Park and enjoy the full fare of entertainment. Drive further over the highest continuous road in the country which traverses the Continental Divide and drops down into the Colorado River basin and Grand Lake. Enjoy all that the Rockies have to offer on the Colorado River and National Park trails. Return home to our lodge in Wild Basin by way of Mary's Lake, Balpate Inn, Eagleplume's cabin and St. Malo's Chapel on the Rock. Settle back into this cozy log hideaway and enjoy the perfect Rocky Mountain holiday you'll want to relive.

A DREAM.

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas week at this wonderful home and loved every moment! The Wards put up a Christmas tree for us to decorate and even provided Christmas plates. We played lots of games, walked down the the creek, hiked, baked Christmas cookies, talked and laughed. It was everything we hoped it would be. If you stay here you will not be dissappointed!

WHAT A WONDERFUL VACATION FOR OUR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
Our group included my husband and I, our four children and their spouses, fiancee, and boyfriend and our granddaughter, 18 months. We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and had a lovely time with our family. No TV, no cell phones . . . we did puzzles, played games and hiked in the national park. We made great meals in the wonderful kitchen which had everything we needed. One morning we had a visit of a moose family which circled the cabin - so exciting. It was great to have a playpen, high chair, and backpack for our granddaughter. We had no idea what to expect as we have never done anything like this before . . . it was perfect to unwind and have quality family time. The listing on vrbo.com was completely accurate - the photos shown online portrayed the warmth we felt while we were there. It was clean - and the owner was helpful as was the person who let us in and showed us around upon our arrival. Definitely we would recommend this to people. We were a little nervous that Rocky Mountain National Park wouldn't be opened during the shutdown but thanks to the State of Colorado, we were able to get in and do some hiking. Before our family arrived, my husband and I checked out the little restaurant in Allenspark - awesome breakfast. Our children were equally impressed with the place.

BEYOND EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
There are not enough words to describe this wonderful cabin. We had 3 generations, including a 2 month old. Our 2 1/2 yr old grand daughter loved everything from the teepee, trampoline to the creek. We had unusually warm days, but always a nice breeze. Them view is fantastic, sitting on the main patio (or laying in the hammock) is so relaxing. The kitchen is wonderful to cook in, all the rooms are extremely comfortable. Our kids had a great time with the basketball hoop, we have a great picture of our son making a shot with his son in the baby Bjorne, truly great memories. The owners are wonderful to work with, you can't ask for better hosts. We will definitely be back!

AMAZING WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a week-long reunion at Wild Creek Lodge - a week that went by way too quickly! The house is an absolute treasure - so warm and inviting and yet 10 people barely seem to make a dent on the space. The view of Mt. Meeker, the rushing creek and the stars at night make you feel like you are in paradise. The location is also wonderfully secluded - it is such an escape from every day busyness. We all enjoyed the hiking possibilities; there is something for everyone. Then, after an amazing hike, coming back to relax at the house was just our idea of a perfect day. We thought about going out to dinner a couple of nights but we all decided we didn't want to leave the house. We will definitely look to come back - the sooner the better.

EVERYTHING YOU'D WANT IN A MOUNTAIN CABIN

Everything you'd want in a mountain cabin
  • 5 of 5
Our week at Wild Creek Lodge was exactly as we'd hoped. The lodge is comfortable, clean, well appointed, quiet, and very convenient. It's close to great hiking trails in Rocky Mountain NP and is less than 20 minutes from downtown Estes Park. The lodge gives you great views of Mt. Meeker from large living room and master BR windows, from the large (entry) deck, and from the master BR deck. We assume there are good restauants nearby, but we cooked every meal in the wonderfully well equipped kithcen. We enjoyed a memorable family vacation and the hospitality and care of Jonathan, the owner. We enthusiastically recommend Wild Creek Lodge.

VETERAN COLORADO VISITOR HIGHLY RECOMMENDS

  • 5 of 5
I now understand why all the previous reviews gave this property a five star rating. I have been a visitor to Colorado for most of my 60+ years, and without a doubt, this is the best place in which I've stayed. The property is appealing to the senses - the visual elegance of the lodge, the sweet smell of the surrounding pines, the soothing sounds of the rapids on the North Saint Vrain flowing through the property. Although this property has a Highway 7 address, the highway can't be seen from the property, and the distance from it and the local topography prevent any highway noise from reaching the lodge. You are left with a feeling of remoteness, yet you have all the amenities needed for comfortable living and are only a short drive from civilization. One of the many things I like about the lodge is that there are three distinct living areas in which groups or individuals can congregate apart from others in their party, and in nice weather the three outdoor decks attached to the main level provide additional opportunities. You do not have to retreat to your bedroom to enjoy some private time. When you meet the owner (he always greets his guests personally), you will understand why he chose this location to build his wonderful lodge. (Ask him about his scramble up and down Mount Meeker.)

Whether you are a veteran visitor like me who loves all there is about the mountains of Colorado, or if you are a first timer looking for a place that offers the best experience, Wild Creek Lodge is for you. You will return. And so will I.
