Enjoy magnificent views, serenity and privacy from this charming cabin just outside Rocky Mountain National Park. Perfect for your family vacation or artist's retreat, this home is a beautiful one mile walk from the park where you can hike for miles, and it is a short walk to the shuttle pick up spot close by!
You will feel as though you are taking a step back in time as you enter this historic cabin in a beautiful alpine setting but know you will be greeted with all of the modern amenities to make your stay comfortable and convenient. The cabin has an incredible history; it was built by the current owner’s grandparents back in the early 1900s, around the time of the opening of Rocky Mountain National Park.
The owners have kept the charm of the original cabin while adding in modern conveniences. The living area, kitchen, a bedroom, bathroom with claw-foot tub, and game/art/movie room are all part of the original cabin. The modern master suite has been added on and, in addition to having fabulous views of Longs Peak while relaxing in bed, it also has a gas fireplace, reading/artists area, additional bathroom with shower, and washer/dryer. There is even a twin bed in the same room for a child or family member.
Outdoors, there is a covered outdoor seating area, gas grill, and a wraparound deck from which you can breathe in the fresh air, view abundant wildlife and native birds, take in the mountain views, and feel as though you are a part of the wilderness. Elk, deer, bears, and an occasional bobcat come to visit frequently.
The cabin also has a croquet court with seating for everyone to watch or jump in and play. There are mallets, balls and instructions to get you started on this fun family game. After a few games of croquet, enjoy the perfect picnic spot on “The Rocks”; a natural stone dining area along with a table nestled under the pines. Or for a change, have your picnic first then light the croquet court with lanterns and play a game in the evening. Don’t forget to get in some star gazing between games of croquet!
Watching storms coming and going over the mountains, and the sun rising and setting on majestic Longs Peak will be experiences you won't forget. Located just minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park where outdoor adventure awaits, there is no need to drive or deal with traffic from this private yet accessible location.
Just a short jaunt into the town of Estes Park which offers shopping, great restaurants and activities for all ages, this cabin will be perfect for your Rocky Mountain vacation!
