About Teresa Latimer

We purchased this historic cabin and began a 6 year renovation working on weekends and vacations to bring our cabin to it's present condition. Robert had a vision for this cabin and did all the work you see. We are very proud of the end result...a rustic, well-appointed, cozy and romantic getaway.

Robert is still employed by Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railroad, while Teresa 'retired' in 2013, acquiring her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training that same year. In 2014 the 'Getaway' cabin became Dancing Bear Cabin with Teresa managing the day to day cabin operations.

Teresa Latimer purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Teresa Latimer chose Estes Park

Estes Park is a beautiful village at the foot of Rocky Mountain National Park. Hiking brought us to Estes Park in the beginning, but we soon fell in love with Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park so much that we married here. It was not long before we knew that this was the place we wanted to retire. And so began the search for a 'Getaway' cabin. Our search had a couple of must haves...walking distance to downtown and a quick drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. We found all of this in this wonderful cabin. We are very proud to be a part of Estes Park and to offer our guests the same wonderful experience we enjoy living the mountain life.

What makes this cabin unique

Our beautiful cabin is tucked away in a quiet, older neighborhood walking distance to downtown. You will love the access to downtown but relish the quiet escape at the end of a day of hiking or shopping. This cabin is a perfect place to restore your senses in a peaceful setting. There really is nothing like coming 'home' at the end of the day in the mountains to Dancing Bear Cabin. The moment you walk in the charm of a true mountain cabin draws you in. A beautiful, classic stone fireplace built in old world style by a Russian immigrant in the 1930's, granite counter tops and the queen size aspen log bed make the cabin a perfect place to spend your time in Estes Park. Attention to detail make this cabin a place you will always remember as a perfect vacation cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Estes Park retreat

This tiny cabin was completely charming for a couple getaway. We ate breakfasts in, using the well-stocked kitchen, packed lunches and walked down the hill for dinner in town. Amenities were great: gas fireplace, HDTV, very clean bathroom, beautiful, creative touches everywhere. The treehouse feel from the bed was delightful. We accessed hiking at Lumpy Ridge and both entrances to RMNP. We especially appreciated the 8 deer who greeted us on arrival and appeared to be checking that all was well. We've already recommended Dancing Bear to many friends.

Very cozy and romantic.

  • 4 of 5

This historic cabin is very well maintained and decorated so tasteful. We loved the quiet area and no noise was heard by street traffic or neighbors. The queen bed is beautiful, but I’m a short person and had difficulty getting in and out as it’s very high off the floor. But it was very comfy to sleep on and the pillows were great. Easy access to town and to the national park. We very much enjoyed spending Thanksgiving and our 41st wedding anniversary there. Would stay again!
