Drake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Looking for a couples getaway, this is the place. Quaint and quiet rustic cabin located on 1.7 acres off of Storm mountain. Sit and relax by the wood burning stove and enjoy the hues of the fire reflected off of the beetle kill pine wood. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee off of the huge deck and smell the pine trees. View the night sky lit by a galaxy of stars. Travel to Estes during the fall and check out the changing of the leaves and hear the elk bugling.

Only 20 minutes from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Prime location for fishing off of the Big Thompson river, rock climbing, 4 wheeling/ATV'ing, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, back country boarding, horseback riding, shopping, Estes Park Tramway, family fun at the FunPlex, and grabbing famous cinnamon rolls in Glen Haven.

A great home base

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin, it was such a great location but still secluded. We liked the little adventure getting up & down Storm Mountain and that we were happy that we weren't staying somewhere right along the highway. We didn't cook at all but the kitchen had just about everything we would have needed. Also, the VHS collection was great!

What a GREAT place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children) stayed at the cabin for 5 nights while vacationing in Colorado this summer. The pictures do not do the cabin and the scenery justice. You are literally up the mountain staying in a beautiful cabin with wildlife, mountains and beautiful sunrises at your fingertips. The owners have thought everything through as far as what you need during your stay. We grocery shopped in town and cooked meals at the cabin and enjoyed our coffee on the deck in the mornings. Our kiddos loved all the movies that were in the cabin, too. We didn't get to use the wood burning fireplace because the weather was already perfect, but it was there, if we needed it. I could write for days, but at the end of each would be the same summary, we loved, loved, loved the cabin and beautiful Colorado!!

We had a great time here. The view is lovely. The hummingbirds and stars kept us entertained and in awe. The cabin is cute and homey with all the amenities we needed. Although it's a distance from Rocky Mountain National Park, we went back and forth with no problem to hike and enjoy the high mountains, and we then really liked coming back to our peaceful cabin away from the crowds.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

we could not have had a better experience with our first cabin rental. The cabin was very clean and very nice. The area was so quiet and peaceful. We saw different wildlife every day. We even saw a black bear on the first morning. We felt very at home and enjoyed our stay. I will recommend this to our friends and family. We loved it! A great getaway!!

Quaint Mountain Oasis

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. I would have given it 5 stars, but we lost power a couple times (once for over 8 hours) which was inconvenient. The cabin, however is lovely and very cozy, the deck is in need of some repair, but certainly has a beautiful view. Overall, it was an enjoyable, and memorable stay.

Small cabin just north of Drake

  • 4 of 5

It's part of a neighborhood, but you can only see 2 houses in all directions. The porch is nice to watch the sunset and you are far enough away from everything that the stars are out, even the Milky Way. I was planning on working remotely from here, but the Internet connection wasn't fast enough. It's fine for email and Facebook, just not work. It's about 25 min from Estes Park and 25 min from Loveland. The caretaker said you could walk down the road and just walk into the National Forest, but I didn't try. My wife found plenty of viewpoints to paint while staying here. We would return!
