This is unlike anything else you will find in the Estes Valley – this secluded mountain retreat is miles from the nearest neighbor completely surrounded by Roosevelt National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park. You will spend your entire stay and likely see no-one but your host.

During the summer, a 4WD or an SUV is required to access the property.

The lodge offers summer on site horseback tours and winter snowcat tours. Amazing hikes are right out the front door taking you to mountain meadows, hidden ponds, and incredible pinnacle views of Estes, Denver and Rocky Mountain National Park.
The owner lives on the property, and while you have total privacy, there is always someone available by radio to provide help and guidance when needed.

After an exhilarating day in the wilderness, come back and cozy up to the fire in this one of a kind great room, listen to satellite music or watch the big screen and relax to the Bose entertainment system.

Accommodations include: Bedroom 1 has a Queen, Bedroom two has a Queen and a set of bunk beds. There is a full kitchen fully stocked with cookware, dinnerware, and common spices and condiments and a 6 place custom log dining room table big enough for your whole family. This is the mountain lodge of your dreams.

 Available with snowcat/horseback tour. $575.00/per night 

Experience of a Lifetime
What a beautiful place that has all the comforts of home but with the rustic feel of a mountain lodge. Tim met us at the gate and led the way up the mountain (4-wheel drive recommended) to his home. This experience was enjoyed by the family and the beginning of our adventure at 9000 feet. The lodge was full of history which Tim was happy to share. We also enjoyed the amenities on the property; fire pit, hiking, outdoor shooting range, and the many other happening around which you can only experience by taking some time out of your everyday life and reserving a few days away at this location. We enjoyed sharing time with Tim and side kick “Hankster the Prankster” – Tim’s dog. We will stay here again sometime in the future and recommend for anyone wishing to live/feel the real Colorado mountain experience.

Mountain Fun
We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Estes Park cabin. The owner Tim could not have been nicer and his cabin was beautiful and most comfortable. The cabin was very private and we definitely needed our Jeep to get to the cabin which was a fun adventure in itself. This cabin rental is for people who want to get the "real" Colorado experience. If you want to have a restaurant or Starbucks around the corner don't rent this place! Sitting on the deck with our morning coffee and evening glass of wine with just the sounds of nature was a highlight. Our adult children appreciated the satellite radio, internet and dish TV.

We can't wait to come back!
This was the absolute perfect place off the beaten path. I agree with the comments above, getting there is an adventure in itself and a 4 wheel drive is a must! We were greeted by Tim, the owner and he escorted us to the property. Good thing, because I don't think we would have found it. I cant say enough wonderful things about Tim. He is cowboy, mountain man all wrapped into one. He is so kind, friendly and greatly entertaining. We enjoyed his hospitality immensely. The cabin is beautifully appointed, not your typical rental but truly a home away from home. Its cozy and warm with beautiful furniture and decor. Everything in the cabin has a story. The views are spectacular. Coffee in the morning on the deck and drinks in the evening were awesome. My husband and son took advantage of the shooting range located not far from the cabin. Activities from the cabin were plentiful. All necessary medications are available. The hiking from the cabin to twin sisters peak was a true adventure! Tim also has horseback riding packages available. I highly recommend this ride. It is quite different than most trail rides. Tim puts you own his own personal string of horses! They are suitable for all levels. My son and husband have very little experience riding, but my daughter and I are experience. Tim matched us up well with our riding experience. Tim markets the rides as historical because he takes you past some historical old buildings. While that was interesting, the highlight was the scenery and the vistas that you will only experience on horseback! We will book early for next year!

Restful rustic place
What a great place to unwind and relax. I drove in from Denver with my family (a lovely scenic drive) because we just wanted to get away and hang out. We were pleasantly surprised by this house, So much to see both in and out. Lots of history. The views are incredible. The peace and quiet amazing. The sound system in the house was great. Listening to music in this setting was just incredible. The snow cat ride up was a fun adventure. We couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces the whole weekend. We will definitely book this place again in the summer...I can only imagine what it will be like.
