We are a family of four from Denver. My husband and I are environmental professionals who enjoy being active outdoors, cooking big meals and playing games with our kids. Our two boys enjoy relaxing in the cabin, finding adventures and hiking/ biking/ playing nearby. We spend summers river rafting and traveling as much as possible.

Beth purchased this house in 2005

This is a sort of hidden corner of paradise on the Front Range - only 80 minutes from Denver (45 from Boulder) but very peaceful, dark night sky (stars!) and relatively untraveled, with lots of wildlife and great things to see and do. It's a nice alternative to the I-70 corridor mob scene and not too far from town if you need supplies. Great antique and coffee shops nearby.

Cabin is just four miles (in either direction) from the Wild Basin entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Long's Peak Trailhead, and has great hike and bike options out the front door, as well.

This is a quiet community of mostly summer residents, but is great to visit year-round. Ours is one of a few year-round weatherized houses in the area, and is bright and comfortable. The Meeker Park Lodge just up the road is open in the summer, and offers a small shop, square dancing, horseback riding and movies.

Our cabin is one of the newer places in the area - built in 1994 from old logs, with an open floor plan and furnished with antiques and comfortable seating and bedding. The floors on the first floor are all cork, with colorful oriental rugs. The large sitting room and open kitchen/ eating area are the main part of the house, with a high ceiling. Upstairs is a large loft that has a ping-pong table, a writing desk and a sofa-bed and futon. In the rear of the downstairs are two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom, with tub, shower and a washer/ dryer.

Most of the houses in the area are in the woods. There are fantastic rock formations throughout. Ours was built in a meadow with a pond and creek. From the front picture windows and large deck (also visible from the loft) the views are unparalleled. Both Mt. Meeker (the south side of Long's Peak) and the Twin Sisters area of the national park are visible, and change constantly with the light and the season.

Listing very accurate. I would absolutely return, and recommend to others. I hope they still rent it out when I retire so I can go back for a month!! The property was clean, and the kitchen well stocked with dishes, pots and pans. We went to Indian Peaks or RMNP everyday. The cabin was in a great location for hikes in both places. Must take a dip in the swimming hole...really cold, but oh so invigorating! Beth was prompt with her communication, and answered questions. Beautiful property.

Perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5
While this cabin is close to trails and activities, I didn't go off the property because being there was so perfect. The cabin is comfortable and so quiet and peaceful. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. Views from the bedroom invite lazy mornings and the living room invites curling up with a book or family card game. I sat on the porch watching the sun on the mountain and the pond while reading for hours. A chilly dip in the creek's "swimming hole" was so refreshing. Treat yourself to this wonderful cabin in a beautiful location.

Beautiful cabin in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5
The photos are for real -- Mt. Meeker fills the view from the living room window. The cabin is beautifully built and nicely decorated, and with the loft it's quite spacious. The location is unbeatable -- reasonably near Estes Park if you need to get there for supplies, far enough away tha the hordes of tourists are nowhere in sight. Highly recommended.

Imagine coming from the low lands, The Netherlands, staying in the Rockies is overwhelming. We can't think of a better place starting your Rockies adventure than this great cabin. We hope to visit again in the future. The cabine has a wonderful atmosphere and a gorgeous view. You feel at home immediately. We can highly recommend this property.

Beautiful location, great cabin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this cabin in August of 2010 for 5 days. It is a great location - close to town and the national park but off the road enough to be very quiet. The pond and creek are fun to play in and the cabin itself is really pretty and very comfy and spacious. Highly recommended!

Peac, quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
This cabin hits it on all cylinders - clean and comfortable in a fabulous setting. The log cabin itself has a charming wild west feel, with big peeled logs and a soaring cathedral ceiling. Extra amenities include a polished cork floor (the color and feel of smooth, worn leather). Best of all: unimpeded views of Long's Peak! The cabin is close to great trails in RMNP and elsewhere. I stayed in the winter, and found it warm and cozy and easy to access. I highly recommend it.
