Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Bierhaus is a fantastic family vacation home 200 feet from the Big Thompson River. It has been recently updated with new paint, living room furniture, all new comfy mattresses, kitchen island granite, and charming remodeled bathrooms. Bierhaus boasts many repeat visitors as well.

Our cabin is a fully inspected and permitted Estes Valley Vacation Home (operating permit #6023)

It is just a very short walk, less than 1/4 mile, to get into Rocky Mountain National Park and begin your hike. You can sit on the sofa and look out the picture window and watch elk and deer stroll by (this is actually very common). Bierhaus sits at the base of Giant Track Mountain and looks out across the Big Thompson River towards Eagle Cliff Mountain and the continental divide. It is a relaxing stay with plenty to do. Bierhaus is in the Aspen Brook community with very private grounds you can walk, including an area for bonfires as well as a playground for an absolutely great family vacation. The Aspen Brook community sits on the Big Thompson River.

Location, Location, Location. One of the truly unique features of Bierhaus is its location. You can avoid any Estes Park traffic simply walking 5 minutes and you are in Rocky Mountain National Park (see map on the right). One of the most common areas visited by elk, Moraine Park, is a brief hike from the house. The RMNP shuttle bus stops at the Moraine Park Museum during the summer. You can use the shuttle to get to many other trail heads further into the park. No need to find a parking spot at a crowded trail head!

Bierhaus is beautifully furnished and equipped to make your stay relaxing...or as active as you desire. It has a master bedroom (queen bed) on the first floor with a full bath. There are two bedrooms on the second floor that share a bathroom. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a queen bed and the other is a 'bunk room' with a set of bunk beds that are twin-size. Each bedroom has its own closet. The great room has a sofa and loveseat with a large table for games and a great fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped for whatever you might need. Bierhaus has a complete laundry room with a large clothes washer and dryer. The home also has a deck with a gas BBQ pit and fantastic views. You can relax on the deck with a book and clearly hear the Big Thompson River, or just watch the wildlife.

As a guest in Bierhaus you will have access to a playground and large picnic area, all adjacent to the river.

Things to do (besides relaxing and hiking):

Hire a fishing guide

Rent a bike in town

Check into a white water rafting trip in town

Take a rock climbing lesson

Try a snowshoe adventure

Go on a horseback ride

Take a day trip to Eldora to ski

About Greg Bier

While vacationing in Estes Park for the last 35 years it has been our family's dream to 'own a piece of the Rockies'. Bierhaus is that. It has been in our family for about 23 years. While our piece of property is very small it has a large history. There is a mineral claim on it from 1875. It was part of the Dunraven Estate. If you read the history of Estes Park you'll see how it all fits in.

We believe the Colorado Rockies are as beautiful as the Alps and more beautiful than the Canadian Rockies.

This - is heaven.

Greg Bier purchased this cabin in 1993

Why Greg Bier chose Estes Park

Location, Location, Location. Bierhaus is its own trail head...there is NO NEED to drive into Rocky Mountain National Park and find a trail head parking space. Bierhaus is about 3.0 miles from the center of Estes Park. It is part of the small Aspen Brook community which is on the Big Thompson River.

What makes this cabin unique

Bierhaus is a unique jumping off point for the whole family. It is convenient to Estes Park yet within walking distance of great restaurants such as the Dunraven Inn. You can walk to the YMCA of the Rockies and take full advantage of all the programs they have to offer (nominal membership may apply).

Bierhaus is its own trail head. From the cabin's deck you can hike directly into Rocky Mountain National Park without having to drive into the park.

The cabin is very close to Estes Park yet it sits in a very quiet, family-friendly area without the town's summer crowds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time staying at Bierhaus! The cabin was awesome and located within walking distance of Rocky Mountain National Park. This was one of the best vacations we have ever had, and we are excited to come back again in the future!

Perfect location for RMNP

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here over the week of the Fourth of July. This cabin was great for the 4 of us...clean, comfortable, and a perfect location to explore Rocky Mountain National Park. Also an easy 10 minute drive (or less) to the heart of the town of Estes Park.

The rooms and bathrooms weren't huge, but had all the space we needed. The cabin is not "remote" . . . you will have neighboring cabins around you . . . but perfect location and we still had deer peering in our windows some mornings.

The owner, Greg, was very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again if we return to RMNP (which is amazing).

Great family vacation property

  • 4 of 5

The house was well stocked and maintained, clean and organized. The layout was great with a nice kitchen and good size dining area, master and full bath downstairs. Great location, not too far from RMP and downtown Estes, with the river just down the hill from the property. There was a kids play area down the road that we utilized. We walked to our favorite restaurant, Dunravens, loved that. Overall a very nice stay.

A Great Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family just finished a great week at this well-appointed, comfortable cabin. There were 5 adults in our group, so we didn't want to feel crowded. And, we didn't. The 3 bedrooms provided plenty of room and the kitchen and living areas were good-sized. Estes Park was just a few minutes drive and the entry to RMNP was even closer. The owner, Greg, was very helpful and responsive to any questions we had. He even offered us an additional night's stay for free as it looked like we'd have a hard time leaving because of a surprise late-May snowfall. We had a great week here, and would highly recommend you choose it, too.

Elk and deer are extremely common on the grounds. It is important that guests, especially children, understand the dangers of getting too close...or trying to feed the wildlife.
