COZY CABIN STEPS FROM ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

Estes Park Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7)

This 1935 Cabin retains its old world mountain charm with restored original hardwood floors, cedar wall accents, and split log siding. At the same time it incorporates all modern conveniences necessary for a comfortable stay including a new kitchen, bathroom and energy efficient windows, one of which is a picture window allowing perfect views of the sunrise. Heating units keep the cabin cozy even on chilly nights.

Get away to this quiet retreat just steps away from Rocky Mountain National Park. Why not climb Eagle Cliff Mountain, rising behind the cabin. Or shop the unique stores in quaint downtown Estes Park. In the evenings, relax on the patio with 365 degree views of the mountains and watch for the family of deer that meanders through the property most days.

The cabin is open year round, allowing you to experience the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in any season or during any holiday.

About Ruth

My husband & I own the cabin along with my retired parents. My husband is busy as Principal of a K-8 charter school in the Denver area, so my parents and I are the primary managers of the property. My parents were linguists, living in Peru, South America, for over 40 years. I was an English/Writing teacher for years but now work part time out of our home. We love to get away to our mountain retreat and hope that you will enjoy the peaceful quiet as much as we do.

Ruth purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Ruth chose Estes Park

My Great-Great Grandfather was a homesteader in Estes Park. Our branch of the family moved away from Colorado, but my father remembers spending summers in Estes park in the 1940's. Several of our family are living back in Colorado, and now we're thrilled to have a cabin in Estes Park where we can build memories with our children. In our completely unbiased opinion, Estes Park is the most beautiful year round vacation spot in the U.S.

What makes this cabin unique

Because the cabin faces Southeast, I love sitting in front of the picture window and watching the sun rise over the mountains. Likewise, the patio offers stunning views at sunset with the clouds turning pink and orange all around. And on full moon nights, the view is spectacular! The full kitchen and gas grill help to make life easy for us: eating dinner outside on the patio is always refreshing. Most afternoons, a family of deer meanders through the property on their way down the mountain. Our children love to climb the mountain behind the cabin and even play cellphone hide-and-seek among the trees, rocks, and outcroppings. As a family, we often walk the 20 minute trail skirting the mountain and ending up at the Moraine Park Museum. From there, we can take the summer shuttle bus almost anywhere in the Rocky Mountain National Park. Also a short walk away but at the bottom of the hill, we can take the free Estes Park shuttle bus into town in the summer and not worry about parking. Other times of year, we are a short 5 minute drive from downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed wonderful days in the cabin in Estes Park and in the Rocky Mountain National Park with its magnificent scenery-- appreciated all the more when there is a comfortable "home-away-from-home" to return to in the evening. You have decorated and furnished it so great. Don't think you have missed anything.

Perfect Location/ Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5
This cabin was perfectly located in the heart of Estes Park! It is within 5 minutes of the Rocky Mountain National Park entrance and downtown Estes. The cabin is comfortable and very well stocked of kitchen supplies, towels and linens. It is very clean and has a beautiful view. There are many cabins close by--but it was extremely peaceful. We had elk right outside the cabin! The only downfall we can think of is the mattresses were not comfortable to our liking and we had difficulty sleeping. Other than that, it was definitely one of our most favorite vacations and plan on returning in the near future! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us!

Owner's Response: We're disappointed any time our guests are not 100% comfortable in the cabin. However, mattress preferences are as varied as the number of guests who stay in our cabin. Both the queen mattress and the double futon mattress are firm for support with foam toppers on both.

Nice Getaway

  • 4 of 5
This cabin does feel very cozy and was clean and well maintained. It was great for a weekend getaway and we felt right at home! I would slightly caution people who are traveling with small children or dogs as the deadbolt on the front door has been disabled, and with very strong winds and cold temperatures, we had a hard time getting the door to latch shut. It blew open early in the morning and our dogs got out. Fortunately, the cabin is tucked away in a nice quiet area so we found our dogs safely roaming around close by. Other than that, we very much enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: We have installed a second lock for double security. We checked the existing coded lock and found no issues. The only thing we can figure is that Feb saw some unusually low temps (-15 degrees F) which must have caused the wood to expand around the lock, making it difficult to latch properly. The secondary lock will maintain security no matter what the temperature outside.

Great little cabin

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is just what I expected. Very cute and located in an older neighborhood. I am from Estes Park, so I was very familiar with the locale of the cabin. There are other cabins very close, but we actually hardly ever saw a soul. We pretty much had the neighborhood to ourselves. The cabin has almost everything you need. It is adorable. Shower is very tiny, but otherwise everything is very functional and was clean. The only thing I would recommend is better tv channels on the satellite t.v. Otherwise, perfect for our needs. We really liked the little gazebo area out front. We appreciate that it was pet friendly as well!

Would recommend staying here

  • 5 of 5
What a cute cottage and in a fun and convenient location. Our boys first comment when we walked in: "this is awesome". It was clean and well-stocked. It was nice to have our own place versus a hotel room. We would definitely stay here again, and we would definitely recommend this to others. It was very convenient to get to Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park as well as downtown Estes Park. Thank you!

Mountain Hiking

  • 5 of 5
I spent five nights at the cabin with my wife, a friend, and his 14 year old daughter. There was plenty of room for the four of us and a fifth person could have slept on the pull out couch. The location was great! We were a short drive into Rocky Mountain National Park and a few minutes away from restaurants and shops in Estes Park. The cabin was very comfortable and the owner was very helpful in answering my questions and assisting me with a specific request. We were able to save money on food by making our own meals at night and packing lunches for the day. We used the gas grill a couple of nights and my friend enjoyed sitting outside in the morning drinking coffee in the gazebo. We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!

So cute!!!

  • 5 of 5
We came to the cabin with 6 people. Was a little concerned when I saw it driving up thinking that it would be too smal. But as soon as we opened the door we fell in love!!
It was such a cute little place and we all had enough room.
Had an awesome little BBQ and really enjoyed drinking our coffee underneath the gazebo in the mornings! The hummingbirds were out all day long and we had such a good time watching them buzz around.
We can't wait to come back again!!

There is no better place to relax then on the back side of Eagle Cliff Mountain! You can hike into the Rocky Mountain National Park or drive in without having to fight the tourist traffic in town. Eagle Cliff Mountain offers easy access to the YMCA of the Rockies, many nice restaurants and a grocery store, once again, without having to fight the tourist traffic in town.
