NO CLEANING FEES- This is a owner operated cabin business. We (the owners) clean the cabins and ensure that the guests get the best experience during their stay. Most cabin owners charge exorbitant cleaning fees and pass these costs to you . We do NOT charge cleaning fees since we want to give the most economical rates to our guests. However, we expect guests to leave the cabin in the same condition they found it. This means that the cabin is left reasonably clean (garbage appropriately disposed, refrigerators and ovens cleaned) and it does not take us more than 3 hours to clean the cabin for the next guests.

NUMBER OF GUESTS- This cabin can accommodates 4 guests ( 2 adults and 2 children) comfortably (550 sq. ft.). More than 4 guests is illegal as per Estes Park Rental Laws.

Historic 1920's Riverfront vacation cottage in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Located just outside downtown Estes Park on the banks of the Big Thompson River. Picturesque surroundings with towering Ponderosa pines, the Canyon, and the Big Thompson river!

Decorated tastefully in a seashell and nautical theme, you will enjoy this newly decorated abode. The bathroom is graced with a claw foot tub and shower.

A picnic area is provided in front of the cottage beside the river. The Big Thompson River is very wide at this point and there is even a small island in the middle right in front of the property. There is a family of ducks living at this point in the river. It is known to be one of the best fly fishing areas too and you have private entry to the river!

Behind the cabin, there is steeper terrain with many rock outcropping, very scenic! A very large rock formation can be found to the right rear of the cabin. Beautiful scenery from every single window.
