As a rental property owner myself, I can tell that the property owners have put a lot of thought and effort into making Ponderosa Cabin a comfortable and accommodating vacation destination. We used and enjoyed the outdoor space as well as the indoors. Our daughter was getting married at Wild Basin Lodge located nearby Ponderosa Cabin which made it easy for my sister in law (florist) to prepare all the flowers so close to the venue. The kids loved the outdoor space (hillside and giant rocks) to climb around on. There were a couple things to be aware of(no AC -we were there during a heat wave and found it difficult to sleep in the upstairs room even with the box fan (and we’re from hot, humid Texas! We do know that the weather was not the norm). The bathroom windows on the 2nd & 3rd floor(located in the shower) were without shades or blinds and face the house next door which made us uncomfortable. Some frosted window film would take care of it. There is also a piece of equipment in the smaller downstairs bedroom that cycles loudly and often which makes that room and the sleeping space above it somewhat inconvenient to use. Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay at Ponderosa Cabin. The drive to Estes was beautiful and we enjoyed cool mornings on the deck with the many area hummingbirds visiting! There was a lot to see in the area and Lily lake so close by made for many fun walks with the kids anytime you weren’t ready to do a big hike. Thanks!

Unique property in the woods near Rocky Mountain National Park. Not right in town so very quiet but close enough to get into the park or town easily. Very comfortable and lots of sleeping options.

Overall, we really enjoyed our 10-night stay in this beautiful home. We loved the cozy feel. The weather was perfect to enjoy the balcony and view the surrounding forest. We saw elk and wild turkey! If you like a very well-stocked kitchen, then this house is for you! However, every single cabinet is full of stuff and there is no place to store your own groceries (crackers, chips, non-perishable items. We had to use the counter-space, which was at a premium and could make preparing meals challenging. It would be nice to have at least one side of a cabinet empty. The hot tub was a dream and we were able to get four of us in it comfortably, although it did lower the water level when we were done. :) They keep it nice and hot and it was very relaxing! The entry from the kitchen to the sitting room (not sure what to call it) is not for people over 6-feet tall. My husband is 6'6" and he had to crook his head to walk between the cabinets and the low ceiling on the other side. It wasn't that big of a deal and sometimes he went around to get to the sitting room, but he did bonk his head a couple of times. The beds were a little hard for all of us, but we got used to them and were sleeping well after the first couple of nights. Collin, the manager, was very responsive when we needed to reach out to him (which wasn't often). All in all, this is a well-loved house as evidenced by the cleanliness and care that has gone into it.

We had a combination of events that inspired us to book this house; Celebrating a milestone birthday with family, working remote, hiking in the mountains and being close to our kids. The house was perfect for all of this and Susan and Colin were very helpful throughout our month long stay.

Wonderful getaway
This cabin was the perfect place for my family to unwind from the daily stresses. My kids were able to play on the rocks around the property and it’s very close to Estes for convenience.

Great stay
The gas grill wasn’t safe as the propane “bridge” between the burners had deteriorated. The property manager Colin was contacted and he promptly replaced the grill with another one. He also brought a fan which was needed due the excessive heat this summer. The kitchen was the best equipped of any property we have stayed at. The only negative is the staircases to the different levels were steep and narrow which could cause an issue for some people. We loved having our dogs with us and they enjoyed exploring the property. The area is quiet and private. We have been coming to the Allenspark area for 40+ years and love it! We will be renting this cabin again!

Cant wait to go back!!!!
Cabin was awesome, slept my family of 5, parents and brother and sister in law with their child perfectly (had 5 rooms to sleep **including the oversized office). Enjoyed the hot tub and grilling out - the adults enjoyed waking up and drinking coffee on the porch - we saw several Mule deer around the house. I was initially concerned on the 20 min drive from the house to Estes however the drive not only is not bad but your right down the road from multiple different hikes, additionally each time we drove to or from Estes park we saw either Elk, Moose or Mule Deer - and you dont need to go into Estes park for great views, the drive from the house into the park was fantastic. We had a great time and are going to plan on coming back in a couple years. ***FYI their is a disclaimer the internet isnt that great, that's debatable, no its not 1Gig fiber and you shouldnt be downloading movies or streaming through the internet provided however - for light internet usage (ie. facebook, email, web surfing) it is perfectly fine - there is 0 cell service however at the house when connected to the internet I was able to place wifi calls without issues. ***To the owners - thank you for letting us stay, we are very thankful you let us enjoy your house - had a great time and made many memories - Thank you.

Quiet and Relaxing
The Ponderosa Cabin is nestled nicely in the woods and we enjoyed a quiet and relaxing stay. The proximity to the Wild Basin area was great and it's just a short trip to Estes Park! Our family of 6 was very comfortable in this home.

Great Property!
This secluded cabin was perfect! Close to Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park but secluded in the woods for some nice privacy.
