What a great location for a relaxing get-away! Close enough to Estes to enjoy the shopping, but away from the hustle and bustle when you want a quiet evening to relax. Conveniently located near Rocky Mt. National Park. Saw a beautiful coyote come across the front yard!! Kitchen has got to be the most well stocked around!! We loved the built in outdoor stone table and the nice side yard to have plenty of room for outdoor games, especially corn hole!
Beautiful views from front porch. Easy access to town and RMNP. We used the fire pit, with provided wood, every night. So nice!
Mary (owner) was amazing from the very 1st phone call I made to her, asking questions about the cabin. It is BEAUTIFUL. We woke up to the snow capped mountains to the left, and deer, elk, bunnies, blue Jays in the front yard. Beds are cozy, cabin is clean, fireplace is welcoming and the atmosphere is quiet. Mary (owner) was available at all times if needed, even for just ideas and directions. I can not wait to come back and stay.
My daughter and I have been making trips to Colorado for surgery every 1-3 months for the past 6 years. One of our favorite places to go while we are in the mountains is Estes Park. We have stayed in multiple cabins and hotels in Estes just her and I as well as our entire family over the years. This past week we planned to stay in Denver the duration of our trip and at the last minute changed our minds and decided to try to find a cabin in Estes for a couple of nights. We are so happy that we did! While searching for places I happened across Aspen Acres and Mary. She immediately responded that the cabin was available and she was more then willing to allow us to stay just a couple nights which is highly unusual for cabins around RMNP. This trip we had 6 of us: myself, my husband, our 18 year old daughter who has the surgeries, her boyfriend, and our 14 and 9 year old sons. Mary and the cabin made this trip one of the best we have ever taken to Colorado! As soon as we pulled in the drive we were in love! The cabin is located in a very peaceful and quiet setting with a beautiful pond and gorgeous views of the mountains only a couple minutes drive to either downtown Estes Park or RMNP entrance. She has the cabin stocked with almost everything you could possibly need. We loved feeling like we were at home and being able to just enjoy our time together. The kitchen is fully stocked, there are two bedrooms upstairs, one had a single bed and one a queen as well as a master bedroom downstairs. The couch also pulls out into a sleeper and Mary has inflatable mattresses if you are still in need of sleeping space. There are 2 full bathrooms and a dining and living room. The layout and decorations in this cabin are absolutely perfect! Downstairs has huge picture windows allowing you to see clear through the house at the gorgeous Rocky Mountains and small pond! We loved the covered porch! There are plenty of things at the house so that if you want to just stay there and enjoy time together, you can. She has it stocked with books, games, puzzles, coloring books and coloring pencils. We really enjoyed both the indoor fireplace and the outdoor fire ring. Our first night we used the fire ring to make hamburgers, hot dogs, bacon wrapped asparagus, marshmallows and s’mores. On the next morning we had over 20 mule deer walk through, one walking right up to within three feet of me. After a drive through RMNP seeing more mule deer and elk, we were all excited to get back to the cabin and spent the day in front of the fireplace playing games. That afternoon we got snow so the boys and I went sledding in the yard and made snow angels and had a snow ball fight. Waking this morning to the snow covered ground, trees, and mountains was a gorgeous sight! All of us were extremely sad to leave, my dear daughter and I both cried as we locked the door! We have already booked a week in September as well as a week over New Years and another week next year over Christmas and are counting the days until we get to go back to our new “home” in Estes! Don’t think twice, I promise you will be begging to stay longer and come back sooner! Mary, again, thank you for allowing us to stay and making us feel like we have finally found a place where we will stay EVERY time we are back to our beloved Estes Park and RMNP!
