Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to the Shawnee Cabin! Estes Valley Operating Permit #6031 -a licensed vacation rental property.

Come and relax at this historic vintage 1928 cabin built on what was once Ferguson Ranch. With views and rock outcroppings all around, this cabin is located one mile west of downtown Estes Park and approximately 2 miles east of Rocky Mountain National Park.

This non-smoking log cabin has an original warm knotty pine interior with a wood burning fireplace and lots of character. Enjoy a good night's sleep on our quality mattresses in the two bedrooms, each with a dresser and closet.

The kitchen with original Douglas fir floors is inviting, filled with natural light, and great for enjoying the many mule deer and elk that often wander through the area, as well as the birds that come to our feeders. Cabinets are thoroughly stocked for your convenience. The bathroom has a large shower. We also have a picnic table and propane grill in the back yard. The south-facing deck with views of Prospect Mountain is a perfect spot to relax with a cup of your favorite beverage.

Our guests have commented 'Comfortable and inviting, it is the nicest cabin we have been in,' and 'This was by far the most comfortable and homey cabin we've ever stayed at in Estes Park.'

Here is the perfect place to experience the true feeling of Colorado in your home away from home, to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Rocky Mountains.

About Owner

We love going to Estes Park to kick back, relax, read by the fireplace, watch the deer and elk and hike or snowshoe in the mountains. This cabin fit our ideal image of a cozy place to relax in.

Owner purchased this Cabin in 1999

Why Owner chose Estes Park

Estes Park is a wonderful, quaint, picturesque town with lots of outdoorsy things to do. We love this knotty pine cabin. This is the epitome of what a mountain cabin should be.

                                                                This was the nicest little cabin I've ever stayed in. Situated only a few miles from the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park it is perfect for a family of 4 visiting the National park or the town of Estes Park. We were very impressed. The owner Sue was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was very neat, clean, and cozy. It had everything you would need to fix a meal and then relax on the porch and watch the elk roam through fields. I would definitely stay hear again. And VRBO made the whole process of securing the accommodations easy.

                                                                My family loved our stay!

                                                                Peter F.

                                                                Minutes from any activity in Estes, and a few minute drive to Rocky mountain national Park. Quiet area. Comfortable beds. All the amenities that I enjoyed: wood fire place, coffee Bean grinder, lots of literature on what to do in Estes and rmnp. And we even had a bobcat and an elk up close in our yard! My five year old loved it. Would stay here again.

                                                                Cozy cabin near town

                                                                Great little getaway cabin -- cozy but stocked with everything you'll want or need. We spent the weekend and had a great time. There were just two of us but there was plenty of rooms to bring the kids if we had wanted to.

                                                                The cabin was exactly what we wanted!

                                                                The cabin matched the description and photos. It was what we were hoping for! It was clean, easy to find, cute, comfortable and warm. Private and quiet. Owner provides firewood for only one fire, but kitchen and bathroom are well appointed. We hope to visit again!! Thank you!


                                                                Kolin H.

                                                                The cabin was perfect for our little family. My lone complaint would be it can be difficult to find in the dark. We arrived around 10 PM to check in but had some trouble finding the turn. We called the owner and she was able to direct us in however. Estes Park is a "dark sky" town so not much you can do about that though. Great little place.

                                                                Perfect little simple cottage. My favorite room is the Kitchen/Dining.

                                                                My only suggestion is that the two beds need better pillows.
