Mountainbrooks Ranch Aspen Cabin is one of 2 cabins (also see Mountainbrooks Boulder Cabin) on our family guest ranch located on 9 acres with trees, meadows, streams, and wildlife—just 12 miles south of Estes Park, Colorado, on Highway 7 near Rocky Mountain National Park. Permission required for pets. This modest, rustic, and quirky cabin is great for a quiet mountain getaway or a family vacation. We also have free WiFi, free USA long distance phone service, and a TV with Chromecast streaming.

The space
Mountainbrooks Ranch is a family-owned guest ranch which has been in operation each year since the late 1940s. Aspen Cabin is a modest, rustic, and quirky mountain cabin in a wildlife area - not a new luxury condo or hotel. The surrounding acreage is a delightful sample of high-country beauty just off the world-famous Peak to Peak Highway.

Please take a look at our photos which were all taken on the Mountainbrooks Ranch property. Please note that interior photos usually make rooms appear larger and better than they are. For example, the bathroom and the small bedroom in Aspen Cabin are small rooms - and some rooms have stained ceilings from water and other damage years ago. Over the years, we have put our efforts into function instead of appearance. So the roof, fixtures, and appliances are all in good working order, but paint and other finish details have a lower priority (like many old mountain cabins). But unlike many old mountain cabins, Aspen Cabin has free WiFi internet service and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA. There is also a TV with a Chromecast device so that you can stream on the TV any compatible video services that you have on your smartphone like YouTube or Netflix. In 2020, we were finally able to get faster internet service.

In 2019 we installed new flooring throughout Aspen Cabin! The new luxury vinyl floors look like maple wood or gray stone. We have also remodeled the bathroom. It is bright and clean!

Aspen Cabin was originally built in the 1920s as a small guest cabin. Over the years, many additional rooms and features have been added to the cabin. Granddaddy even had an amphitheater built outside so that he could entertain guests in the 1950s with slide shows and organ music!

The master bedroom has a private door to the bathroom. The middle bedroom has a privacy curtain to separate it from the small hallway and the other door to the bathroom. The small bedroom has a door to separate it from the living room but is open to the hallway to the bathroom. Each bedside has an extension cord (for your phone charger or other electronic device) and a lamp for each person.

The living room has a single bed and a large sofa. The porch room has an additional dining table and two recliner chairs.

The utility room contains the water heater and other tools and storage items.

Our cabins are cleaned and checked before and after each guest. However, there is no way to prevent occasional bugs, moths, flies, mice, etc. from getting inside the cabin - or in any mountain cabin! We sometimes keep a covered mouse trap hidden behind the trash can in the kitchen. We just want to make sure you are aware of this.

During a winter storm in 2019, a double-topped pine tree blew over and is now leaning over locked into two other trees below and away from the deck of Aspen Cabin.

Where you’ll be

Allenspark, Colorado, United States

Granddaddy called our property Mountainbrooks Ranch. The property has been owned by our family since the late 1940’s. We consider it very special. We sometimes stay on the property in our small travel trailer. We would like to be here all summer if not for our other commitments. It is our home away from home. Mountainbrooks Aspen Cabin, at elevation 8,500 feet, is located just off the Peak to Peak Highway near the Rocky Mountain National Park, the Roosevelt National Forest, Allenspark, and Estes Park, Colorado. Relax on the property among the trees, meadows, streams, and wildlife or adventure in the mountains nearby!

I like to keep lots of irons in the fire. That way I can put a lot of heart into what I am doing and I don't get burned out on any one thing.

I am the owner and host of a family-owned guest ranch with two vacation cabins between Allenspark and Estes Park in Colorado. We call the property Mountainbrooks Ranch and my family has operated it since the late 1940s. My wife (and Co-Host), Faeda, and I have also enjoyed visiting other Airbnb listings as guests during our travels. We prefer Airbnb listings over hotels.

I am an attorney with a private practice in Fort Worth, Texas, and I am also a professional guitar instructor, a member of a band, a qualified mediator, a graduate-level mediation trainer, the owner of a mediation and training business, a former adjunct college professor, the president of a professional association, a licensed pilot, the executive director and founder of an educational and charitable 501 (c) (3) community music organization, and a devoted husband and proud father.
