Best Priced for 4 Bedrooms and 3 Baths


Home Description

     Our vacation home complies fully with all current Colorado, Larimer county and Estes Park licenses (registration #3296), codes and taxes!

     Do you want a place to make memories?  Roasting hot dogs, making smores, and singing songs around a campfire in the evening?  Enjoying the sky full of stars at night?  Eating breakfast outside on the deck while you watch the birds and wildlife?  Catch some sun on the south or north deck.  Or make snow angels!  This is a magical place! 

     This is not a condo/townhome//apartment -- no noise above, below or beside your vacation home.  This is a full four bedroom, 1400 square foot home with three baths.  No shared space, and lots of amenities you won't find in most rentals -- Academy Award movies, every small appliance you could want, sunflower shower heads, luxury towels, hiking trail information, and bird, tree, flower and animal books.

     ONE ADVANTAGE OF THIS PROPERTY IS THE PRIVACY AND SPACE; indoors and outdoors -- one whole acre is yours!  ANOTHER ADVANTAGE is the proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park -- no travel through town to get there!  We also have high speed INTERNET.  Lots of wildlife, too!

     A return guest of 2009 says,"We look forward to spending time in your lovely cabin.  We plan on the first week in August (2010).  I hope I can retire in Estes Park because every year I love it more and more.  I have never had a vacation area feel so right as Estes does."  (They rent every year for a week.)

     This vacation home is available year round.  FALL is a beautiful time when the ELK BUGLE during the rut, and the aspen turn GOLDEN.  When the sweet of the pines drifts through your window, the birds flock to the feeder, your campfire softens those marshmellows just right, the coyote runs up the road, or the deer and elk greet you in the front yard, you won't want to go home!  Our private home is on ONE ACRE with tall pines, rock outcroppings, and mountain views.  Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are wonderful year round!

      In summer, you may hike or ride horses in RMNP(3 miles away) where wildflowers bloom in abundance, or you can enjoy the hummingbirds(just outside the north picture window), wrens(just outside the kitchen window), bluebirds and other birds that visit our property.  At any time, you may hear owls or hear/see coyotes.  Estes Park offers shopping, concerts, live theatre, rodeo, horse shows, tours, and a wide range of restaurants.  The Scottish Highlands Festival is held in early September.  Horse shows, concerts, and special events -- often free of charge -- are held regularly May through October in Estes Park.

      The master bedroom has a king size bed, TV/VCR/DVD, prints from the National Western Art Show, and adjoining private bath.  Our home has a queen-size beds in two bedrooms.  One bedroom has quilt art, the other has two prints by Bev Doolittle. The Private Guest Room has a twin bed with a queen size hide-a-bed, and a bath with shower.  (PRIVATE GUEST ROOM NOT AVAILABLE OCTOBER THROUGH APRIL).

       The living room has a fireplace, TV/VCR/DVD, southwestern prints by Pena, a sofa, two recliners and a rocking chair.  The kitchenhas everything you would want -- see listing below.  We have a new (July 2012) Fridgidaire range with ceramic top and large oven, and an over-the-range microwave.  There is a full laundry with Maytag washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. 

       The decks on the north and south sides of the cabin offer full sun (south) or shade (north).  There are chairs, lounges, outdoor tables on both decks.  The south deck has a gas grill.  The north deck has a bird feeder year round and hummingbird feeder in summer.  A fire circle and a large picnic table in the north yard are perfect for weiner roasts and smores where the veiws are outstanding. 

       Need a backpack or an insulated bag for a picnic?  Need bibs for the kids?  They're here.  Need hiking poles, canteens, compasses, bear bells?  They're here!

       Even electric blankets--so no cold sheets on your first night--just turn them on and warm up the beds before you jump in--nice in the wintertime!

       Our location is central to RMNP(3 miles), Estes Park South Park Village(1 mile), Big Thompson River(1 mile), Giant Track Mountain(1/2 mile) and Mary's Lake(2 miles).  Estes Park is a couple miles away--far enough from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to shop, dine, and be entertained conveniently.  There is a free trolley that runs in summer and is 1/2 mile away.

       We have lots of good references from satisfied guests--the quotes in the guestbook are taken from notes left by guests.  Many guests have rented for years and they book next year's time when they leave this year.

Wonderful location in Estes Park!

We were so happy to have found this cabin in Estes Park! It's a wonderful and quiet location, and had everything we needed! It was clean and smelled great, and both of those are very important to me because of health issues! It was homey and the views out the big picture window were fantastic!!! We'd be happy to stay again!

peaceful, well equipped home in an ideal location

We couldn't have been happier with our stay. The Martin's obviously beloved home is a perfect place for a restful (and energetic) stay in the Rocky Mountains. It's less than 10 minutes to the Park entrance, and you don't have to go through town on the way, which was ideal for getting to the Park early (a must in summer months). We spent every day hiking in the Park, and every evening enjoying home cooked meals (prepared in the Martin's well equipped kitchen), sometimes on the back deck or back "yard," with a view through the trees to the mountains. One time, we had a dinner guest - I looked up and saw a female elk quietly making her way across the "yard," foraging as she went. Two other days, coming back from the well-stocked supermarket (which is about a 5 minute drive from the house), we had to stop for a herd of female elk (including a nursing calf) while they crossed the road. The house is on the outskirts of the town, very near to the action if you want (we didn't), but on a gravel/dirt road with not too many neighbors. I say back "yard" because it's not a yard per se but rather a part of the forest/meadow landscape ... spread out pine trees, some wild grasses and flowers. The house itself is super comfortable - a well lived in and cherished home. Sitting on the sofa or recliner in the living room, there's a view out the large window to the back "yard" and mountains beyond. And the artwork is wonderful!! A mixture of native American and Western - authentic, inspiring, lovely. Missy Martin is managing things now for her in-laws, the owners, and she made communication and arrangements easy. This is not a fancy house, but if you're looking for a restful, inspiring place to call home on your visit to the Rockies, you have found your spot.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We are incredibly grateful to find such a warm and cozy cabin. We had 2 very successful fires in the firepit and loved the board game collection. The location was incredibly convenient for visiting RMNP. The open and well-equipped kitchen made meals easy and the grill works fantastically. All in all, we loved it and in my opinion, this has been the best Colorado trip; we've been here twice before but not in the same place. I would like to come here again maybe next year.
