Come stay in my arty bungalow on a quiet hillside steps from the heart of downtown Estes Park (STR #3516). You can't find a better location! Let your creativity flow through my piano, guitar and other instruments. My place features a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and great views of the Rocky Mountains.

+ Walk to restaurants, shows, breweries and shopping
+ 5 min drive to Rocky Mountain National Park

A 425 s/f space, big on amenities, perfect for your trip!

The space
Real quick -- house rules:

No early check in or late checkouts. Check in is 4pm or later; check out is 10am or earlier. No smoking, no pets, no parties. 1 car only. Guests are to wash dishes before leaving (we have negotiated a lower cleaning fee based on this). Accurate guest count is mandatory (4 max) and the platform will not otherwise generate a correct price for your date. Space is 414 s/f. Also no cable -- bring your own streaming accounts for the smart TV.

Onward!

My newly remodeled artsy bohemian bungalow is perfectly situated on a quiet hillside overlooking downtown Estes Park. There are great views of old Man Mountain and Prospect Mountain right off the deck. It’s rare to find a hilltop cabin with these views that are this close to town, and I can't recall ever seeing a vacation home filled with as many instruments as this one! There's a piano, ukulele, guitar, mandolin, set of bongos, and a djembe drum. Use the mountain vibe to create music after an inspiring day in the Rockies.

You can drive into the park in 5 minutes, walk half a block to restaurants, meander to Bond Park for live music, or just chill out on the deck and watch the hummingbirds fly by after a long day in the National Park.

*** BEFORE CONTINUING, NOTE THE FOLLOWING ***

1) Two can sleep in the queen bed, and there’s a sofa bed that is slightly smaller than a full size bed. That means the place sleeps four people comfortably if two are children. If they are adults, it’ll be a squeeze for the fourth on the sofa bed.
2) By booking, you are agreeing to the house rules in the listing. You MUST read them.

Now, onward! I invite you to stay in my boho-chic cabin. It’s bright yellow and I like to call it Mellow Yellow. You will love its warmth, cleanliness, artsy feel, views, location and awesome lighting!

It's perfectly appointed with comfy furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen, and countless amenities so you can feel at home during your mountain getaway in Estes Park.

I am a long-time superhost and have hosted thousands of people at my other properties. Recent guests have raved:

"... The pictures were amazing but upon stepping in it was like I was in my own world"
"... This place is in the best location and only a short walk to downtown."
"... I was stunned by the interior design and the special touches strewn throughout the space!"
"... The views from the porch are surreal."
"... Communication was easy and the piano was my favorite."

I spent several weeks giving my new cabin a facelift to create a quiet, relaxing sanctuary for your mountain retreat. Improvements include:

+ Updated decor
+ Musician's dream house, with piano, guitar, ukulele, mandolin, bongos and djembe
+ Blackout shades in the bedroom
+ Luxurious queen bed in a romantic nook with cozy lighting
+ New furniture
+ Fun bohemian vibe
+ Super fast WiFi

You will enjoy 1 bedroom, a full bathroom with toilet/shower, a living room with games, puzzles and a smart TV, a dining area with seating for 4, great deck with huge mountain views, and a really inviting living room.

My favorite feature is either the views off the deck, or the incredible lighting that adds a ton of ambiance for a romantic getaway or for those who just need to relax after a long day in the mountains. It’s a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of life.

BEDROOMS

My home offers 1 bedroom plus sleeping for one or two more in the living room.

Bedroom 1 - A great little master bedroom with attached bathroom. The comfortable queen bed is in a little nook surrounded by pendant lights and sheer curtains. It’s relaxing and extremely romantic!

Sleeping Area - The sofa converts to a bed that’s slightly smaller than a full size bed. It’s fine for two kids, 1 adult, or two very very cozy sleepers. Linens are underneath the sofa (it pops up).

LIVING & ENTERTAINMENT

Deck - This is the hallmark of my home, and it's a favorite place to spend time. Because my home is up on a hillside, you will feel like you’re in a treehouse. You can look down over the town, and out across the Estes Valley to Prospect Mountain and Old Man Mountain. You can walk about 4-5 blocks to the base of the aerial tramway that can zip you up to the top of Prospect Mountain (season dependent) and get a great view of the entire National Park..

Living Room - You'll pass much of your time here on the incredibly cozy and comfortable sofa. Twinkly lights and bamboo pendants light up the space, and a beautiful accent wall of plants will keep things alive and natural feeling. There are a few puzzles/games in the hutch if you want to detach from technology.

WiFi - The bungalow has a great WiFi router so you’ll enjoy a strong 60Mbps connection for streaming, entertainment and work, with no dead zones.

COOKING

Kitchen - The kitchen is fully stocked It features an oven, a fridge/freezer, a microwave, various small appliances, cutlery, dishes, utensils, bowls/pots/pans and virtually anything else you may need or want. It opens directly to the dining area so you can socialize as someone's cooking.

ESTES PARK'S MANY AWARDS

Estes has become an awesome year-round destination over the last five years. In fact, a few years ago the town was named to more than 50 lists of Best, Favorite and Top Destinations. Here are a select few:

- Best Mountain Town - Sunset Magazine
- Top-Rated Vacation Destinations in North America - Expedia
- America's Most Scenic Roads - Travel + Leisure Magazine
- Top 20 Mountain Trips - Sunset Magazine

- Best Towns in Colorado - Niche
- Top 10 Adult Spring Break Destinations in America Revealed - World Property Journal

Here's what National Geographic Magazine wrote out our little slice of paradise:

"Rising up along the Continental Divide, Rocky Mountain National Park is a natural overachiever, with 77 mountains above 12,000 feet—including 14,259-foot Longs Peak—and a span of alpine tundra. Snow-packed granite peaks tower over a calm of ponderosa pines, which ease toward meadow and meandering stream—four ecosystems within one park. It’d be simple to cover them all on a drive along scenic Trail Ridge Road, but why not channel Enos Mills and hike some of the 355 miles of trails instead? You might hear elk bugling or spy otters swimming among lily pads."

Location

Estes Park, Colorado, United States

My cabin sits on a quiet hillside that's literally steps from downtown Estes Park. There is no better location in the entire zip code! You can walk to all the best coffee shops, breweries, restaurants and shops in town -- you can even listen to live music at Bond Park -- and still come home to a private, quiet retreat. The cabin's extremely unique location allows you to skip all the traffic in Estes Park and zip straight into Rocky Mountain National Park along Highway 34. What's more, you'll likely see hummingbirds, deer, and even elk off the deck! It doesn't get any better!
