Description of the Taos vacation cabin rental
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 14 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. Free WiFi.

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.

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 Master bedroom with queen bed has a private balcony overlooking a secluded view of aspens and pines and an attached large luxurious master bathroom with a hot-air massage tub for two, walk-in shower, electric fireplace with ambient lighting and a flat screen TV.

The second bedroom on the main level has a queen-size bed and has an attached full bathroom. It also has a staircase that leads to an upstairs bedroom with two twin beds.

An additional upstairs suite on the other side of the house has a queen bed and an attached loft with two twin beds.

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.
Area Information
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 (1 and 1/2 houra) 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.
Attractions within Walking Distance
The cabin is in the midst of numerous hiking trails. Walk out of the door of the cabin and you can set off on a scenic hike. The road leads to several trails in the Roosevelt National Forest. You can also turn the opposite way and walk to the cafe in the center of the Village.
Nearby Restaurants
The Fawn Brook Inn: Award-winning international 5-star cuisine is served in this rustic lodge. The restaurant thrives with a clientele that comes from all over the world to experience the magical experience of dining at the Fawn Brook Inn - the quaint log cabin nestled in the town of Allenspark, Colorado, surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

Meadow Mountain Café: a log structure painted purple and yellow, this popular town gathering place serves a scrumptious breakfast and lunch. Outfitted with a pot belly stove, built of pine logs, its interior is warm and cozy. . . and usually full. Cinnamon-scented coffee. Giant fluffy pancakes (hint: order *one* per kid). Yummy omelets. Thick toast made from home-baked bread – it gets five stars from internet raters far and wide.
Best Time of the Year to Travel
Our cabin has appeal in all seasons. Autumn with its glorious forests of golden aspen trees is a favorite time. Summer is mild and sunny so people from lower elevations seek to vacation in the mountains and stay at our cabin. Winter is alluring for people who love snow and want to cross-country ski and snowshoe on the many trails in the area. Spring is the quietest time. Snow is still possible; the weather is crisp. This is a popular time for small groups to get together -- Bible study, crafts, knitting, personal development groups.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We loved Everything!

What a wonderful cabin. So homey andcomfortable with all of the amenities, including comfy mattresses, well supplied kitchen and games and videos for the whole family. The little town of Allenspark is a gem too. Together they made the perfect vacation package. We would love to come back again!

?Cozy and charming, perfect for a winter retreat!?

Tucked away in a stand of aspen trees, this charming cabin was the perfect spot for our family trip. The cabin had plenty of room for all five adults in our family, and was spotlessly clean and beautifully stocked with everything we could possibly have needed, from kitchen needs to games and books. There was even a bucket of bird food to attract the amazing variety of winter birds that we enjoyed watching through the wrap around windows. Our trip was a "bucket list" trip for our father, the last trip he ever took, and fulfilled every wish on his list, from the gorgeous snow falling, to the fireplace with a warm fire every night.
The location of the cabin was ideal! Estes Park is only a few miles north on a scenic drive, with Rocky Mountain National Park making a wonderful day trip. The Meadow Mountain Cafe in Allenspark had wonderful food and service. And it was so nice to come back to the secluded cabin at the end of the day to sit by the fire and relax.
When we had questions about the cabin, the owner or her manager were immediately available with answers. In addition, the cabin had a notebook filled with tips and notes about the local area and places to visit.
All in all, we had a wonderful time and definitely plan to return in the future. We would definitely recommend this beautiful retreat to anyone looking for a quiet, yet accessible vacation home in the mountains!

Our fourth visit!

What a wonderful "another" stay we had at the cabin. This was our 4th time here. All of us needed a little R&R from our busy lives and this is just the place. The new bathrooms are simply gorgeous! Much more than we expected. We also met a cabin owner up the hill. Jerry Patterson is a glassmaker in Estes Park. We even had the opportunity to visit his gallery, watch his glass blowing demonstration and purchase a piece of art glass to take home with us to remember our trip and cabin stay. We are already making plans to return in June 2014. Can't wait!

We want to move here!

This is our second visit within a month. This time we brought our twin 11-year old boys with us. They want to move here from the Army base in Colorado Springs. We all agree that's a great idea. It is so peaceful, comfortable, and relaxing.

We sent our guys out hiking -- and they came back with stories of wildlife. It is awesome how our boys are homebodies but they love being here. We always hate to leave. Our time seems to go way too fast. We'll be back.

Breathtaking for our engagement!

We've had a great family vacation! We've been through the Rocky Mountains, Denveer, Pikes Peak & many more. Celebrated a birthday, followed by an engagement in front of the fireplace! It's beautiful and breathtaking up here. I'm so sad to go back to the float Lincoln Nebraska. Thanks for the wonderful time. I'll never forget it!!!

We had such fun!!

Thanks for the great family getaway. We all enjoyed it and the kids had a blast. We are from South Texas and we don't get any snow. We had so much fun in the snow, sledding and making snowmen. This is a very beautiful place and we thank you for sharing it.

Laughter and friendship

Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us. It truly will be a lifetime long memory. From the moment we stepped foot into the cabin, we were in LOVE! We came here with our 2 children (3 & 8 months) and our friends and their 17 year old daughter. There was fun for all! We had a ton of snow which we enjoyed . We took the sleds down the road in front of the cabin. I can't remember the last time we all laughed so much. Thank you for everything and thank you for bringing friendships closer. The view from the cabin is beautiful. I enjoyed waking before everyone and listening to the wind in the trees. So peaceful. I hope to return someday!

Inner peace for our knitting retreat
Our knitting retreat at the Aspen mountain cabin has been the most wonderful respite for the nine harried women. We got a lot of snow and we enjoyed playing in it. Everything was so beautiful that we found our inner peace. . . . love and many blessings

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at your cabin. You have done a spectacular job in making it a special place to visit.

Amazing Mountain Escape
Our trip to the Aspen Mountain Cabin was absolutely wonderful! This was our first experience renting a vacation home, and we couldn't have asked for a better one. If you're thinking about staying at this cabin, stop thinking and book your stay! The cabin has just the right mix of modern and cozy. There were 5 of us during our visit, and we all had plenty of room. The cabin has so much natural light, great views (watching the sunrise over the mountain each morning was beautiful), and all the amenities you could ever need. Jessie was a wonderful host. She prepared us for our stay wonderfully, and gave us great information about the local places to eat and shop, etc. The Meadow Mountain Cafe in Allenspark has friendly people and a breakfast that is out of this world. We also really enjoyed the town of Lyons. It has so many neat restaurants and shops. The St. Vrain Market is also a great place for produce and out of this world sugar cookies and other baked goods. I know we'll be returning to the Aspen Mountain Cabin. I would love to experience each of the seasons from the inviting back deck. This cabin is also a great place for families with young children. The cabin is stocked with toys and games and movies both children and adults can appreciate and enjoy. I would suggest this listing to anyone considering a stay in the Lyons/Estes Park area. You won't regret it!

Well Appointed Cabin
Excellent base to relax or explore the many hiking trails in the area. The master bath is extremely luxurious and the sleeping configuration worked well for our group of 6. Wonderful views of the wooded lot and frequent visits from Elk. Would stay here again!

Just a little bit of Heaven!
Aspen Mountain cabin was even more beautiful than I expected it to be! It was perfect in every way. It was clean, roomy, peaceful with a beautiful view. Everything you could possibly need is there for you. The owner has done everything and more possible to make it very comfortable for guests to enjoy.The master bathroom was newly renovated and oh so beautiful! I honestly could have stayed there forever! If you're looking for a little bit of heaven Aspen Mountain is the place to go.

What a delightful place. We were all pleasantly surprised by the coziness of the cabin. It is very comfortably furnished. I had two wishes when we came ? see animals and a beautiful view. My wishes came true. First morning 5 mule deer grazed just into the trees at the first break of dawn. The next morning four were back and came right up to the back steps. Wow! What a sight! Thank you for thinking of everything. Games, (my, how our girls love the little loft area rooms, bedding, washer/dryer, comfortable furniture, etc. Thank you for wonderful memories.

Our visit at the cabin was amazing!

We got married in the meadow behind the cabin. It was a perfect setting for a nice country wedding with our new combined families. The cabin had everything we could have needed. The kids found the dress-up clothes to be hours of fun. Thank you so much for a wonderful place to have our special day!

Wow! What an awesome cabin! We were so excited to find it somewhat secluded and very near nature. As two moms and four kids, we loved being able to be in different areas doing different things and never feeling crowded. Thanks for everything.

We had a wonderful week at your cabin. We were delighted with the cabin?s furnishings: the cozy bedding, the interesting antiques, the well-stocked kitchen, etc! We were thrilled to be able to have a fire in the fireplace in August. We decided the sky is a brighter blue here than in Iowa. Thank you for a great mountain vacation.

One would think aspens are aspens no matter where they are, but that simply isn?t true. Colorado?s mountains offer something that no other place can. Outside the charming cabin, we found trails to hike, wild life and horses to ride, but from inside we could spend hours just watching the quaking aspens or cuddling up and reading a book by the fires. This cabin was the perfect place to observe God?s wonderful creation. It?s amazing how awesome the mountains are even for those of us who live at 7200 feet in Laramie Wyoming.

I would have to say the place was a perfect fit: the views, the peacefulness, the accessibility to go horseback riding, fishing, hiking, etc. We had a 5 X 5 bull elk about 40 yards outside the kitchen one morning and heard his bugle last night
