Come play in the Rockies and stay at Willow Creek!

A sampling of comments taken from our guest books : 'We had a lovely time at your cabin. We played Taboo and Scrabble and Chess around the table, enjoyed the hummingbirds and met the ranger down the road who chatted with my sister, the bird watcher, had lovely times on the deck, and looked for shooting stars. Allenspark was a wonderful setting off point to the Park. Thank you for sharing your cabin. We happened upon weather that was most beautiful.” Eric

“Vicki & Gordon - Our week is nearly up and we're wishing we could stay longer! The weather's been perfect and we've enjoyed staying at your cabin in the peace and quiet of Allenspark. We've made some hikes . . . it's [Rocky Mountain National Park] a great park for hiking. We especially enjoyed the Moraine Park area. In fact, we've been impressed with the generally 'unsullied' appearance of the Park. Thanks!” Ona & Roger I., Sioux City, IA, - P.S. Enjoyed some of your books, i.e. Ogden Nash, Willa Cather, etc. Our tastes are similar.

More guest comments: “Thanks for allowing us to stay at your rustic mountain cabin. We really enjoyed our stay in the Rocky Mts! The bubbling brook by the cabin gave that extra special peaceful touch to our stay. We really loved the Allenspark Community Church. It was a blessing to sing the hymns of faith and hear a message out of God's Word by Pastor Rex Roth. Our first hike was up to Ouzel Falls. Beautiful. We loved the Old Trail Road up to the top of the mountain. We experienced a thunderstorm with rain, snow, and hail. We saw Grand Lake with the quaint shops. We hiked to Bear Lake, Cub Lake, and many others. What pleasant weather . . . cool! We saw many elk, hawk, squirrels, rabbits, jays, chipmunks, pikas, etc. Hope to visit up here again in the future.” Merl & Nancy, & daughter Julie - 30th Anniversary and family trip,

Yet More Guest Comments: “For our stay, Willow Creek Cabin was base camp for a July 30th ascent of Long's Peak. Three of us are 50+ high school friends seeking to re-kindle the flames of youth and adventure. We successfully climbed the peak and walked the long way back to the Long's Peak trailhead. Two sons, Stephen and John, joined us on the climb along with Christie. All of them performed commendably under strenuous circumstances. The red Tibetan prayer flag that we hung on the deck was divided among them as a memento of their first climb of Long's. . . . Our climb lifted our spirits in the grandeur of nature. Life is good.” David, Topeka, KS, (a regular guest of Willow Creek Cabin)

“Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful cabin. This would have been the perfect writer's retreat had the photographer and adventurer in me not come out! Your cabin was a wonderful home base & it's so centrally located! . . . If I ever return to Colorado, I will definitely check here first.” Tasha

CAN'T WAIT TO VISIT WILLOW CREEK AGAIN!

Can't wait to visit Willow Creek again!
  • 4 of 5
Our family loves Willow Creek! This was our second summer here and we have booked our third. We spent days in Estes Park and hiking in RMNP. Our evenings BBQing, playing cards and board games at the kitchen table.
The creek by the cabin is great to listen to in the evening, sitting on the giant patio with a cup of tea.
We have three kids two are teens and even with no cell phone service or tv they LOVED it and are looking forward to another year.
The property manager answered all our questions quickly and made sure we had everything we needed.

THANKSGIVING IN ALLENSPARK

  • 4 of 5
The cabin was very homey and comfortable. We stayed cozy and warm with the help of the pot belly stove and the fireplace. Allenspark is off the beaten path, it took about half an hour to drive out of the mountains either to Estes or to Lyons. We hiked into Rocky Mt Nat'l Park from the Wild Basin area which is only a few minutes from Allenspark. Beautiful wild country. We enjoyed lunch at the local cafe one day and enjoyed that and visiting with the locals. No cell phones, tv, internet so be prepared for some quiet reading or games. We enjoyed our stay!

Willow Creek Cabin is in the lovely town of Allenspark Colorado which sits at the national park's southeast corner, along the breathtaking Peak-to-Peak Highway. The highways itself is 55 miles of curves and scenery rivaling the postcards from Estes Park, 12 miles to the North. Established in 1918, this scenic town shows the way to some of Colorado's most famous and beautiful areas. Chief among these is the craggy, 14,255-foot Longs Peak, as well as Rocky Mountain National Park, host to alpine vistas, glacial basins and 3 million visitors annually. In addition to visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, visitors enjoy horseback riding at many nearby stables. Fishing during summer months, and cross-country skiing in the winter makes the town an attractive year-round destination. While peak tourist season occurs during the summer months, this town's hiking trails, located at an altitude of 8,521 feet, provide wonderful views of the changing aspen trees in autumn.
