About this listing

Small, basic, affordable cabin perfect for 2; fits, but tight, for 4. Perfect base camp. Backs up to national forest, minutes from national park, 15 minutes from Estes Park. *Stay 5+ nights for $99/night - ask to receive this special offer. For groups of 2 or less only.*

The space

The bathroom and kitchen share a room (our long term renters affectionately call it the "bitchen") and there is a door that separates it from the main room. It's a small, yet efficient space with a shower, sink, toilet, mini fridge, decent counter space and almost everything you need out of a kitchen. It is supplied with everything you need to eat, plus a coffee maker, mini fridge, hotplate toaster, toaster oven, sauce pans and skillets. It is a tight space, but if you can handle it you can cook almost anything! There is a grill outside and propane is provided.

Backs up to national forest. Playground at the bottom of the hill, behind The Old Gallery, for children.

This cabin is the perfect base camp for your outdoor activities! It's only a short drive to Estes Park or Lyons, and there is hiking on site with amazing mountain views! We enjoyed that there is no tv or cell phone service, forcing us to enjoy the amazing beauty surrounding the cabin. It has everything you need for a rustic experience. We are already planning on going back!

This cabin was so amazing. It is hard to describe the scenic beauty, the quiet, and the comfort of the cozy cabin, but it was a perfect place to experience the mountains for me, my boyfriend, and my dog. There are a lot of close dog-friendly hiking places, including the national forest right behind the cabin. It is right outside of "downtown" Allenspark and thus very quiet and peaceful- nothing like the tourist run Estes park. Every morning we would see some sort of wildlife just behind the cabin (mule deer, hummingbirds, flickers) and we really enjoyed being able to have such a clean and safe home base for when we would explore the rmnp and surrounding areas. Rachel checked in with us via text to make sure everything was going well when we first arrived and then provided us plenty of privacy during our stay. The cabin was clean, well maintained, and the perfect size for the 3 of us. Like other reviewers say, be sure to follow Rachel's directions on how to get to the cabin. Once there, rachel has clear directions and house rules posted to answer any question you may have. We really enjoyed staying here and hope to return again soon!!

My boys and wife had fun at the the cozy cabin. Its definitely quaint, and requires contentment in smaller spaces. Even in the rain we enjoyed playing board games and reading books late into the night with the surrounding nature to add to the cozy ambiance.

Rachel was very quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our trip. The cabin was very cozy and clean. Our favorite part was the beautiful forest right in our backyard. It was peaceful and relaxing, just what we were looking for :)
