About clare Ann Bauman

Colorado is in my blood and I've always wanted my own home in the mountains. Now I finally have it. I cannot live in it now, so I want to share it. I love this Cabin, Rustic, with all the comforts you could ever want.

clare Ann Bauman purchased this cabin in 2013

Why clare Ann Bauman chose Rocky Mountain National Park

My husband had Polio and I always wanted to find a pool for him to swim in. I also have always loved Colorado as I was born here. I knew when I saw a swimming pool in the mountains and it was the place I wished for forever.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is private. There are no neighbors in site. Our Sonos Stereo System both inside and out provides an amazing atmosphere of peace, tranquility, and that nothing bad can get to you. Do as you wish, turn the music up by the pool, bother no - one. Swim all night if you wish. There's no place like it in all of Estes.

There's nothing like Barbecuing, watching the kids swim, listening to a good song on the stereo and looking up at the majestic mountains.

Catch and keep fishing, Plenty of great Mountain and river views. Mountain Goats, Elk, and Black Bears can be seen occasionally in woods around the house.

Just relax in the wonderful bedrooms, with Flat Screen TVs/with cable in every room bedroom. It is amazing!!

We realize that this is a cabin out in the wilderness near Rocky Mountain National Forest. We make sure we have everything we can think of to provide you with all those small things that you can't buy on every trip. The new crockpot is great for cooking a roast while your out hiking or laying by the pool. You will never wake up in the morning without a good cup of coffee to enjoy while you look out at the nature and mountains. NOTE: with 8 person or more, water becomes an issue. Laundry is the biggest culprit. We do have a extra water tank for summers.

An idyllic cabin located in the heart of Colorado's wild landscape

  • 5 of 5

The Big Thompson Pool Cabin is not only a location to visit, but an experience. I was lucky enough to visit here with family during the early autumn. The natural landscape is certainly a major attraction, with its robust mountain sides and full foliage. The amenities of this cabin enhances one's experience of this surrounding wilderness, such as the outdoor pool, spa, and sauna room overlooking the Big Thompson River. One can even fall asleep listening to the constant, soothing rushing of this river flowing a few yards away.

Televisions, Wifi, and a wireless stereo system are provided for one's enjoyment, along with such timeless delights as a billiard table, a guitar, and an eclectic collection of books. Bathing in the stone shower in the lower level is an experience that matches that of any professional spa resort.

This is a true retreat for travelers desiring an unforgettable experience in the midst of northern Colorado's natural landscape.

Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

I just LOVE this cabin. What a relaxing and beautiful pace to get away to. This was a much needed vacation and I feel completely rejuvenated. Being able to enjoy a heated pool and hot tub in the middle of all this natural beauty is a priceless experience. I really did love this house and all its amenities. It was very clean and had everything I needed including kitchen items for cooking. Plus, there were these awesome mountain goats that came by. So cool! Everything was beautiful, the views are majestic. I can hardly believe this places even exists out here and I can't wait to come back!!!

Picturesque views with endless luxury amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the perfect picture of fall. Driving up the,all the leaves are changing,the river was rushing and the large cabin was just nestled perfectly in the canyon. It couldn't have been more beautiful. I came here for an Autumn visit and couldn't have been more pleased.Owners provided, PLENTY of wood for cozy cracking fires. They have a heated pool that we swam in under the stars,a massive hot tub and beautiful wood sauna that is built directly into the canyon side with panoramic views. They provide delicious coffee , and I love taking a steaming cup outside in the morning while watching the rushing river. Great way to start the day. There is so much to do in the area,but I honestly never wanted to leave. This is not a place to just sleep at night,this is an all out experience. Every normal activity turns into something special. Taking a shower in their massive walk in shower built around the actual canyon stones is WILD. It's like a subterranean luxury spa from another planet. The entire house,even the patio is connected with a booming Sonos system which is great when swimming or soaking outside. The beds are even more comfortable than home! We were even able to listen to records in our room. Pool table downstairs, and horse shoes in the picnic area outside too! Such a gem,will definitely be back.

Great time at Big Thompson Pool Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at the Pool Cabin. The weather wasn't that great, but because of the wonderful amenities at the cabin we were able to have a fun and relaxing time. Sat in the pool and hot tub during the rain and chilly evenings and soaked up the warmth of the water. House was very accommodating to a large family. Would recommend to anyone going to Estes Park, CO!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful choice for our family gathering. Close enough to Rocky Mountain Park, but away from the tourist bustle. Clare and Armando were excellent hosts.

We are 10 miles from Estes Park in the Big Thompson Canyon. We have the river and the Canyon in front of us running through the Roosevelt National Forest; which our cabin is on. If you hike up the back of the property, you will hike onto the portion of our land where it meets The Rocky Mountain National Forest land. This is one of the most beautiful spots in Estes. I was concerned about the traffic at first. Now I just don't hear it unless I go out to sit and watch it and think how I used to sit and wish I had a cabin like that. It just feels so private that you feel very safe.
