This is a great cabin just a few minutes outside Estes. We had two couples and there are two rooms with queen beds which was perfect. The setting and house are lovely. We enjoyed the fireplace inside (too cold to use the outside fire pit during our visit).
Mary was responsive throughout the experience, even offering to let us stay a little longer if we wanted. This is one of the few places that we could get in for only one night (though we REALLY wanted to stay for a second night) without charging an arm and a leg for cleaning fees.
Overall, a great stay and we would stay here again.
Wonderful cabin, great views and lots of wildlife. Mary and her family have done an amazing job with their cabin. She provides coffee, tea, coco, laundry detergent, soap, shampoo, conditioner and much more. Lots of acres, fire pit, pond, lots of land/space. She is soooo nice and so responsive to any text or email.
We will definitely be back again - a little piece of heaven!
We stayed in Estes Park over the week end of Colombus day and were so lucky to find this cabin! It is super clean, extremely well equipped, beautiful, cosi, quiet, close enough of the main part of the village to be convenient but far enough to have the deers in the garden. We had a great time by using the grill enjoying the fire pit as well as the fire place inside on the last day! All the room are nicely decorated. Mary is a lovely person who does everything to make you feel welcome! If I am lucky enough to have the occasion to go back in Estes Park I will definitively try to rent that cabin again! Thanks Mary for your kindness.
The only reason not to give Aspen Acres 5 stars is to keep this gem "below the radar" so others won't find it! We had a wonderful stay there in late Sept. with our two adult daughters, son-in-law and 10-month old granddaughter. It was very clean upon arrival and has all the amenities you'll ever need ... and then some! The owner, Mary, has put a lot of thought into what families might need during their vacation stay and has tried hard to fill those needs. Just a few examples: games and books for adults, some toys for kids of all ages, a permanent child gate at the top of the stairway to the 2nd floor bedrooms, desk in the loft, not one but two types of coffee makers, dozens of kitchen utensils and pans and pots, chopped wood in plastic cans (to keep it dry) next to an outside firepit, and even Hershey bars, graham crackers, marshmallows, and stainless steal sticks/skewers to make S'mores. The cabin is only 3-4 minutes from town but with its 3 acres and pond in front, it clearly feels out in the country. There was more than enough room for all of us to spread out, including on the large, covered front porch overlooking the pond. We'll no doubt be back!
There's not enough space here to tell how much we enjoyed staying at this idyllic spot!! What a charming little cabin. It had everything we needed and then some. Location and views were amazing. This is a great family friendly cabin nestled in the woods with majestic views of the Rocky mountains. I would give this rating many more stars if I could.
I highly recommend to anyone wanting to have a relaxing time, but close enough to anything you want in the area. My brother and his wife were in town from Ohio and wanted something more than just a hotel or "chain" place to stay.
I booked Mary's cabin for two nights. It comfortably slept 4 adults and a 3 year old. The house itself was great - it had more than we needed in terms of things you'd find in an everyday home...but what set it apart from others was the wood construction and the property itself. We all had an awesome time there - whether it was sitting on the front porch and just enjoying the views, running around the yard, cooking some burgers on the grill, making a fire in the fire pit and making smores to playing corn hole.
It's a short drive to RMNP and into downtown - so we explored as well. The neighbor across the street had a horse and my son wanted to go see him...so when we saw the owner outside - we walked up to the road she was more than happy to let us approach and feed her horse some carrots.
We had such an enjoyable time! Like stated before - I would recommend Mary's property to anyone who wants a relaxing and enjoyable experience in Estes.
Thank you Mary!!
