Property Description

Located near both the Wild Basin Entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and Long's Peak trail head, this cabin is ideally suited to anyone looking for a base for hiking, riding, climbing, hunting or just lazing and star gazing.

The first floor includes a combined kitchen, dining room and living room, as well as two bedrooms and bath. Upstairs is a large loft overlooking the living room that most guests use as the master bedroom because of its large windows, the king size bed and it's stunning views of Mt. Meeker.

The house sits on an acre and a half lot. It is adjacent to Ponderosa Lodge (Property # 803298) which we often rent in tandem (it is about 100 yards down hill) and which can be accessed by a path. Many families have rented both houses together for family reunions and weddings.

We bought the house in 2001, although Susie had hoped to purchase it since first setting foot in in 1967, when her parents brought the family to meet the builder before purchasing the house next door.

There has always been something very special about this cabin. It feels isolated while still being close to amenities. Its an easy 15 minute drive to Estes, 45 minutes to Boulder, and 5 minutes to the booming metropolis of Allenspark (population 250!). The Meeker Park Lodge Livery is a short walk and in summer the lodge has a small grocery store for last minute items.

We are surrounded by Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest so there is hiking in virtually every direction, from easy strolls to the trail head for one of Colorado's magnificent 14'ers. The Long's Peak trail head is just a brief drive.

Susie's family started coming out to this area in 1955 and have enjoyed the wonders of this area in every season. The abundance of wildlife (moose, elk, mule deer, bobcats, hawks, owls, chipmunks, squirrels, seen them all!) can be enjoyed from the deck.

The house is fully furnished and includes satellite and wifi, a flat screen TV, DVD, games, books and a welcoming wood burning stove in the living room.

Perfect mountain getaway

Beautiful mountain views! This was a very cozy cabin close to Wild Basin, definitely family friendly. Close to the park but far enough that you can relax and be part of the beautiful landscape. I would stay here again for sure.

Vive la tranquillité

Chalet situé dans un environnement de pins qui embaument. Lits confortables. Beau puit de lumière à la mezzanine avec vue sur le mont Mecker. Maison assez bien équipée, mais certains équipements sont un peu fatigués (grille-pain, poêles). Se trouve à 18 minutes d'Estes Park. Susan répond rapidement aux demandes d'information.

A gem in the Rockies

First, the location of this propertty was great - not right in the touristy Estes Park, but close enough that it was convenient to get there. Quiet, airy location. Loved waking up to the beautiful sunrise lighting up Mt. Meeker while still laying in bed! Make sure you open the windows whenever you're in the house to let the mountain breezes drift i...
