Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Rocky Mountain National Park - ASPEN MOUNTAIN CABIN

4 bedrms/ 3 baths -- 3 queens 4 twin beds

This charming two story log cabin is on 1.3 acres of wooded property nestled in an aspen grove near the quaint little mountain town of Allenspark, about 17 miles from downtown Estes Park. Enjoy all the amenities provided by Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park without the crowds! Play all day in Estes Park or Rocky Mountain National Park or any of the dozens of nearby attractions and then retire to this quiet piece of heaven where you can sit on the deck, unwind and actually hear the sounds of the mountains. WiFi is available.

Allenspark has a wonderful cafe for breakfasts and lunches as well as a five star gourmet restaurant for fine dining! The village is a perfect place - easy to reach from the Denver International Airport and yet a spectacular, serene, relaxing mountainous retreat.

This house has been visited by many and loved by all. Come see for yourself!

Things to do: On the doorstep of the Rocky Mountain National Park, you can enjoy a variety of activities all year round -- from leisurely hikes to vigorous mountain climbing, horseback riding, fly-fishing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing, ice skating, cross-country skiing, sleigh rides and much more.

Alternatively, you can simply relax in your romantic cottage and enjoy the peace and beauty of your surroundings, the wildlife and the mountain views. By night, enjoy wine by a crackling fire in the stone hearth. By day, explore the majesty of the Rockies. Wake up to a sparkling mountain view through the aspens. Cook traditional family recipes in the well-equipped kitchen. Play games in the sunroom.

This cabin is romantic for just two but able to handle a crowd. Glorious in the summer; intimate with warmth in the winter, it is a peaceful retreat.

Cabin layout gives private space to guests: The bedroom layout allows for private space for guests. The Master bedroom has a private balcony overlooking a secluded view od aspens and pines. The second bedroom on the main level has it's own upstairs room, and the upper level bedroom has an attached loft.

About the owner: The owner family (consisting of parents, two grown boys and their small families) regularly gathers for bonding time where their heart is -- Colorado.

Scattered around the US and abroad, they decided to re-establish a home base in Allenspark in 2005 -- skiing, snowboarding, 4-wheel driving, water rafting, hiking, camping, exploring -- celebrating the best of amazing Colorado..

They fell in love with this adorable vintage 1950’s log cabin in the middle of everything they enjoy of the Rockies. The family of ten absolutely loves this cozy, romantic, and spacious cabin and, because of that, believes that everyone will. They are thrilled to share the mountain experience with others, hoping that all will enjoy laughter and love there and build indelible joyful lifelong memories.

About jessie webster

Jessie Lois Webster is the mother of two grown boys and four grandchildren. Thanks to the Air Force, much of her family’s growing up years was spent in Colorado – skiing, snowboarding, 4-wheel driving, water rafting, hiking, camping, exploring -- celebrating the best of amazing Colorado. Her boys and their families never left the area.

Jessie’s graduate education from the University of Colorado, Boulder, led to a career in Corporate Training and Development which in turn, led to worldwide assignments with Hewlett Packard and Motorola. Even though her last position, CEO of a software company specializing in tools for human resource development, brought her to reside in Chicago, the family regularly gathers for bonding time where their heart is -- Colorado.

In 2005 they decided to re-establish a home base in Allenspark. They fell in love with this adorable vintage 1950’s log cabin in the middle of everything they enjoy of the Rockies. The family of ten absolutely loves this cozy, romantic, and spacious cabin and, because of that, believes that everyone will. They are thrilled to share the mountain experience with others, hoping that all will enjoy laughter and love there and build indelible joyful lifelong memories.

Why jessie webster chose Rocky Mountain National Park

Our family loves this cabin and its remarkable location, because it accommodates us all, yet is intimate and cozy..

Allenspark is a perfect place - easy to reach from the Denver International Airport and yet a spectacular, serene, relaxing mountainous retreat. In this quaint little town near Estes Park, we found an authentic vintage log cabin perfect for antiques and woodsy furnishings where wildlife is abundant.and the space is mountain-clean.

Here abound a multitude of activities: Horseback riding, kayacking and whitewater rafting, down hill skiing, cross country skiing, easy hikes and challenging climbs.

The cabin is surrounded by the Roosevelt National Forest and the Rocky Mountain National Park and its myriad of famous hiking trailheads.

We make memories here, love and laugh, inspire and bring out the best in each other.

It is a joy to share it with others. We know it is a perfect place for families to enjoy their time together,so we've stocked it with dress up clothes, toys, movies and games. It is a huge pleasure to make this sweet and wonderful cabin available to you.

* a luxurious bathroom with a hot air massage tub for two, walk-in shower, electric fireplace and flat screen TV, heated floors.

* Each bedroom is a suite with its own space

- Private, serene property with aspen groves, pine trees and meadow spaces. Although you can see other cabins in the distance, they do not encroach on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed Dec 30, 2015 -- Jessie's cabin was so lovely and exactly as described. It was warm and cozy and had plenty of games and movies and so many little items that make a house a home. My family and I had a wonderful time and all our needs were met. Communication was great and we had all the info we needed beforehand plus a wonderful binder in the house explaining everything we could ever need explained. Wonderful experience!

Remarkable

  • 5 of 5

This place was remarkable. She thinks of everything including so much for the children to do. The wildlife everyday by the cabin was amazing. She calls to make sure everything is OK and to just check on you. The cabin is amazing. If you are ever going to Colorado this is the perfect get away. My family had the most relaxing time at this cabin. Thanks for this experience

Family together time

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a vacation rental in Colorado, I wanted a cabin that was somewhat secluded, by a mountain stream and has that "cabiny" feel. My husband didn't think I'd ever quit browsing VRBO for the perfect cabin! I think the Aspen Mountain Cabin fit perfectly! Our family has 7 adults and 2 grandson's (7 1/2 and 6 years) the bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were very adequate. We spent most of our time in the sun room area when we were there. We went hiking part of 2 days, weather was great. One of Jessie's recommendations of local restaurant's was the Meadow Mountain Cafe. We had breakfast there one morning, the food was great and servers were very friendly. Our son and daughter in law saw a moose just down the road from the cabin. We also saw deer close by every morning.

My husband and I enjoyed staying here with our family to celebrate our 40th anniversary! It was hard to leave!

Gobble, Gobble

  • 4 of 5

We were bringing our bags into the cabin when a family of wild turkeys showed up to help. Since we are pretty much city people we didn't even know what they were at first. The were looking at the open SUV doors like it was their big chance to get the ride of their lives. Maybe they were auditioning for a State Farm commercial. During our stay they showed up almost every day. Somebody must be feeding them.

One evening after a long day of hiking, we crossed paths with a family of moose on Ski road. A bull, a cow, and two calves. Crazy stuff! We also had the usual encounters with Elk in Estes Park. We went to Estes for Elk fest, which is turning into a huge event for such a tiny community. We did notice there were no Elk for Elk fest. Wondering if they move them out of town when so many humans are around.

The cabin was great. Took some getting used to the night noises, but we found a fan in the master bath that helped with the sounds. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to keep us out of the local restaurants.

The Aspen were at their peak when we arrived, and gone when we left. So much natural color that it blows your mind. Photo-ops out the wazoo. We got over 700 images in two weeks.

Thanks for sharing the cabin, it has provided lots of great memories for us.

Well stocked and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Four adults stayed in this cabin for a week. The cabin is very well stocked, recently updated, and was very comfortable. It is far enough away from other cabins to be very quiet. The owners have obviously thought carefully about guest needs. It is in a nice location, far away enough from the center of this small town to feel like you are in the mountains, but with easy access to town and main roads. There are ample opportunities for hiking. If you are into road biking, the surrounding paved roads are challenging, but very scenic and bikeable. Mountain biking would be good as well. There were only 4 of us and the cabin was larger than our party's needs, but it still worked well. It could work well for a larger party, particularly if children were part of the group. Downsides were minimal. The interior walls were not very soundproof and the road up from the main road was rutted, but driveable in a normal road sedan. All in all, everyone loved the cabin and we would certainly return.

Aspen Mountain Cabin is just outside the little village of Allenspark Colorado which sits at the national park's southeast corner, along the breathtaking Peak-to-Peak Highway. The highway itself is 55 miles of curves and scenery rivaling the postcards from Estes Park, 12 miles to the North. Established in 1918, this scenic town shows the way to some of Colorado's most famous and beautiful areas. Chief among these is the craggy, 14,255-foot Longs Peak, as well as Rocky Mountain National Park, host to alpine vistas, glacial basins and 3 million visitors annually. In addition to visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, visitors enjoy horseback riding at many nearby stables. Fishing during summer months and cross-country skiing in the winter makes the town an attractive year-round destination.

While peak tourist season occurs during the summer months, this town's hiking trails, located at an altitude of 8,521 feet, provide wonderful views of the changing aspen trees in autumn.

Other Activities: Horseback riding is popular in the area. There are many livery stables nearby -- one within 1 mile of the cabin

In nearby Estes Park, you can find white water rafting tours and mountain climbing guides.

Nearest Lakes: Lily Lake is a stunning alpine lake under the watchful gaze of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker. What makes Lily Lake a great family destination is that it’s right along the highway, so it’s easily accessible for people of all ages. The lake has sturdy picnic tables on the east shore. We had a family reunion several years ago and enjoyed a picnic there while watching the sun set behind the mountains. Instead of stopping at the tables, we struck out along the trail around the lake, which is only 0.8 miles long and handicap accessible. It is level and lined with logs, so it’s perfect for a wheelchair or a leisurely stroll. We walked past anglers fishing for the cutthroat trout. Other lakes: Marys Lake (trout fishing), Brainard Lake (fishing), Copeland Lake, Bear Lake.

The Webster cabin is a perfect base for numerous hikes of all levels of difficulty.

Twin Sisters: At the top, you can see the great majority of the RMNP peaks, as well as Moraine Park and many other areas in the Estes Park valley.

Other trails near the cabin: Little Mountain, Middle St Vrain (includes Timberlake Falls), Rock Creek (just a quarter mile from the cabin door), Long Lake, Isabelle Lake and Pawnee Pass, Brainard Lake to Blue Lake, Loch Vale (one of the best hikes in RMNP and offers something for everyone), Ridge between St Vrain and Meadow Mountain. Wild Basin (an excellent hike for small children–and only a few minutes away), Finch Lake (also known as the Allenspark Trail -- have wonderful views across Wild Basin to Meeker, Long’s, and many Continental Divide peaks toward the west), Sandbeach Lake Trail (the reward is rich: a unique and beautiful lake with a llarge sandy beach and wonderful mountain views. And the trailhead is only 10 minutes away from the cabin.) Chasm Lake (certainly one of the very best trails), hike to Fern Lake.

Ski: Eldora Mountain Resort offers skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and is snowshoe friendly! It is 32 miles from the Aspen Mountain Cabin. Here is some information about the Ski Resort:

Eldora opened for skiing in 1962.

Eldora receives 300 inches of snow per year qand boasts Colorado's best snow making system. Coverage is 100% of groomed terrain, more than any other resort in Colorado!

The base area of Eldora has an elevation of 9,200 feet above sea level. Top elevation is 10,800 feet.

The most difficult mountain to ski at Eldora is the Corona Bowl - a double black diamond!

Eldora is only 21 miles from Boulder and 47 miles from Denver.

It has 680 acres of skiable terrain and its longest run is 3 miles long!
