About jessie webster

Jessie Lois Webster is the mother of two grown boys and four grandchildren.

Her boys and their families never left the area.

Jessie’s graduate education from the University of Colorado, Boulder, led to a career in Corporate Training and Development which in turn, led to worldwide assignments with Hewlett Packard and Motorola. Even though her last position, CEO of a software company specializing in tools for human resource development, brought her to reside in Chicago, the family regularly gathers for bonding time where their heart is -- Colorado.

In 2005 they decided to re-establish a home base in Allenspark. They fell in love with this adorable vintage 1950’s log cabin in the middle of everything they enjoy of the Rockies. The family of ten absolutely loves this cozy, romantic, and spacious cabin and, because of that, believes that everyone will.

Why jessie webster chose Rocky Mountain National Park

Our family loves this cabin and its remarkable location, because it accommodates us all, yet is intimate and cozy..

Allenspark is a perfect place - easy to reach from the Denver International Airport and yet a spectacular, serene, relaxing mountainous retreat. In this quaint little town near Estes Park, we found an authentic vintage log cabin perfect for antiques and woodsy furnishings where wildlife is abundant.and the space is mountain-clean.

Here abound a multitude of activities: Horseback riding, kayacking and whitewater rafting, down hill skiing, cross country skiing, easy hikes and challenging climbs.

The cabin is surrounded by the Roosevelt National Forest and the Rocky Mountain National Park and its myriad of famous hiking trailheads.

We make memories here, love and laugh, inspire and bring out the best in each other.

It is a joy to share it with others. We know it is a perfect place for families to enjoy their time together,so we've stocked it with dress up clothes, toys, movies and games. It is a huge pleasure to make this sweet and wonderful cabin available to you.

At the cabin we've created a space that is both romantic but also family friendly. Special features:

* a luxurious bathroom with a hot air massage tub for two, walk-in shower, electric fireplace and flat screen TV, heated floors.

- Within the borders of the Roosevelt National Forest

* Each bedroom is a suite with its own space

- outdoor spaces for individual musing -- a balcony, spacious deck, flagstone patio,

- Private, serene property with aspen groves, pine trees and meadow spaces. Although you can see other cabins in the distance, they do not encroach on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jesse was very responsive to my requests before our trip, and she was especially helpful in giving us recommendations for grocery stores, restaurants, and activities. The cabin was exactly as described... we loved it. The location is fabulous. We felt secluded in the beautiful surroundings, yet close to Allenspark, Estes, and RMNP. We saw elk, wild turkeys, and two mysterious visitors in the dusk: either VERY LARGE coyotes, or wolves. We were thrilled. It was such a joy to sit out on the deck in the early morning, looking for animals that might appear.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 vacationed here and everything was lovely. We had so much snow while there, we were able to sled, build snowmen. It's not completely isolated, but from many vantage points, you have total privacy. The cabin itself was very accommodating to our families needs. Although the walls were paper thin, the layout allowed for us to retreat to the back of the cabin where the huge porch, living room, kitchen, and dining room are if the littles were sleeping. The bathrooms were beautiful and luxurious and the bedrooms were very comfortable. After 2 days of snowstorms, we ran out of food and weren't sure about driving down to Estes Park, so I called Marisol, the cabin caretaker, who was very friendly and helpful. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great Colorado cabin rental.

Beautiful place in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 3-day weekend in January. Nice, cozy, spacious and clean cabin. Close to trailheads and Rocky Mountain NP. We did not even expect that the road to the cabin could be such clean and easily passable when 2-3 feet of snow covers the forest around.

This is wonderful residence for a large group of people. Plenty of lounging space.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this residence for the parents and extended family members of the bride and groom to stay for 2 nights. The wedding was held at Wild Basin Lodge; only a 10-15 minute drive away. The lounging spaces provided ample area for everyone to sit, talk, eat and sleep. The views out the well placed windows were spectacular. The large parking area allowed us to hide the the "get-away" car. I would recommend this property.

Cozy Cabin Tucked in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The cabin was well set up for us, our daughter, my nephew and his wife and son, and my brother-in-law. The kitchen was well-equipped and everything was clean. We didn't cook while we were there, but one easily could, and there is a very big refrigerator. We loved that it was so close to hiking and enjoyed the board games provided. The setting is beautiful, with Aspen trees all around, and it was very quiet. The stars at night were amazing. The road leading to the cabin is rutted, but we managed by driving up it very slowly. We had a nice breakfast at Meadow Mountain Cafe, and my brother-in-law was thrilled to get a gluten-free vegan pizza at the Tavern (they have regular pizza as well).

The two reasons I didn't give it a 5 star is that the internet was too slow for my husband to work (it kept hanging up on him), and even getting gmail was tricky. The mattress in the second ground floor bedroom was starting to sag in the middle. We would consider staying again once my husband is finally retired!

Nice cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to this cabin. It was nice to wake to a view of golden aspens. Loved the family of turkeys that walked thru the yard. Downside is there is no dishwasher so we ate out.

Owner's Response: I am so glad our guests enjoyed their stay! That's our goal! I encourage renters to understand that for the joy of staying in a gorgeous mountain setting, there are some limitations. Mountain cabins depend on wells for their water supply, hence no dishwasher.

Aspen Mountain Cabin is just outside the little village of Allenspark Colorado which sits at the national park's southeast corner, along the breathtaking Peak-to-Peak Highway. The highway 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.

Other Activities: Horseback riding is popular in the area. There are many livery stables nearby -- one within 1 mile of the cabin

In nearby Estes Park, you can find white water rafting tours and mountain climbing guides.

Nearest Lakes: Lily Lake is a stunning alpine lake under the watchful gaze of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker. What makes Lily Lake a great family destination is that it’s right along the highway, so it’s easily accessible for people of all ages. The lake has sturdy picnic tables on the east shore. We had a family reunion several years ago and enjoyed a picnic there while watching the sun set behind the mountains. Instead of stopping at the tables, we struck out along the trail around the lake, which is only 0.8 miles long and handicap accessible. It is level and lined with logs, so it’s perfect for a wheelchair or a leisurely stroll. We walked past anglers fishing for the cutthroat trout. Other lakes: Marys Lake (trout fishing), Brainard Lake (fishing), Copeland Lake, Bear Lake.

The Webster cabin is a perfect base for numerous hikes of all levels of difficulty.

Twin Sisters: At the top, you can see the great majority of the RMNP peaks, as well as Moraine Park and many other areas in the Estes Park valley.

Other trails near the cabin: Little Mountain, Middle St Vrain (includes Timberlake Falls), Rock Creek (just a quarter mile from the cabin door), Long Lake, Isabelle Lake and Pawnee Pass, Brainard Lake to Blue Lake, Loch Vale (one of the best hikes in RMNP and offers something for everyone), Ridge between St Vrain and Meadow Mountain. Wild Basin (an excellent hike for small children–and only a few minutes away), Finch Lake (also known as the Allenspark Trail -- have wonderful views across Wild Basin to Meeker, Long’s, and many Continental Divide peaks toward the west), Sandbeach Lake Trail (the reward is rich: a unique and beautiful lake with a llarge sandy beach and wonderful mountain views. And the trailhead is only 10 minutes away from the cabin.) Chasm Lake (certainly one of the very best trails), hike to Fern Lake.

Ski: Eldora Mountain Resort offers skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and is snowshoe friendly! It is 32 miles from the Aspen Mountain Cabin. Here is some information about the Ski Resort:

Eldora opened for skiing in 1962.

Eldora receives 300 inches of snow per year qand boasts Colorado's best snow making system. Coverage is 100% of groomed terrain, more than any other resort in Colorado!

The base area of Eldora has an elevation of 9,200 feet above sea level. Top elevation is 10,800 feet.

The most difficult mountain to ski at Eldora is the Corona Bowl - a double black diamond!

Eldora is only 21 miles from Boulder and 47 miles from Denver.

It has 680 acres of skiable terrain and its longest run is 3 miles long!
