Your family will enjoy our comfortable home with its lovely furnishings and amazing view. Since our dining room and den is completely surrounded by picture windows, dinners are complemented with sunset views of Lumpy’s Ridge, the snow-capped Mummy Range and the beautiful Estes Valley, as well as frequent visits from hummingbirds, blue birds, elk, deer, rabbits and occasional bear, coyote or mountain lion (very rare). The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for preparing a holiday meal or a picnic on the deck. The huge deck is perfect for lying out and watching for shooting stars or just relaxing in good conversation or reading a book.
We have chosen to furnish the bedrooms with firm pillow-topped beds. Two bedrooms each have a king bed and the third has a set of twins beds. From the bedroom windows you can often see deer and elk coming down from the Roosevelt forest as you wake in the morning.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park: : When we found this cabin, we knew it would be the perfect home for us. It needed a bit of work, but the mountain views from the picture windows and deck sold us on the home. The quiet location in a private treed neighborhood sealed the deal. Being close to the activities of Estes Park without any of the hustle and bustle was exactly what we were looking for. Wildlife roam through the property regularly and often decide to stay for a while. The cabin itself is spacious and with the hardwood floors and beautiful warm decor, we can't imagine we could have found a more perfect home for us to enjoy and share with our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:: We love waking to deer, elk, wild turkeys, and/or hummingbirds outside our bedroom window, then sitting out on the deck for breakfast breathing in the fresh mountain air. Typically, we head out for a hike to an alpine lake early so we can get back to enjoy a relaxed BBQ on the deck. Later, we might spend the evening watching for shooting stars while we build a small campfire in the fire pit and maybe roast a few marshmallows. It is our place to relax and get away to the quite solitude that nature has to offer, yet still have all the comforts of home.
Owner Description/Comments:: We love the beautiful Rocky Mountains anytime of year. Bob loves to fly fish. We both love hiking, cross-country skiing and just enjoying sitting by an alpine lake reading a book. When the opportunity came for us to purchase our own piece of paradise, we couldn't resist. We loved every moment we spent renovating this lovely cabin that was originally located in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Bob and Karen live in Fort Collins and feel blessed that they can enjoy everything the Rockies offer - hiking, skiing, cross-country skiing and just embracing the beauty.
