Cabin Holiday Rental
2 BR 2 Bath Cabin - sleeps up to 6 MacCracken Homestead -- EV #3259 - a SkyRun Estes Park Property This historic cabin was built and owned by the first Park Ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park - Dicksie MacCracken. Many of the antique furnishings and items in the cabin belonged to Dicksie. If you are okay with floors that are a little uneven and with mountain rustic, you'll love this sweet cabin. Enter the cabin at the back door into the enclosed mudroom complete with the original wood box. The country kitchen is next with Dicksie's original wood cookstove - this no longer works but is part of the historic charm. The spacious kitchen has all the modern appliances that you'll need to cook meals during vacation. The dining room, surrounded by windows that let in the mountain light...2 BR 2 Bath Cabin - sleeps up to 6 MacCracken Homestead -- EV #3259 - a SkyRun Estes Park Property This historic cabin was built and owned by the first Park Ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park - Dicksie MacCracken.

The country kitchen is next with Dicksie's original wood cookstove - this no longer works but is part of the historic charm. The spacious kitchen has all the modern appliances that you'll need to cook meals during vacation. The dining room, surrounded by windows that let in the mountain light, features a charming antique oak table for 6. The Great Room is at the heart of the cabin. The first thing you notice in the Great Room is the original log walls, wood beamed ceiling and large stone fireplace. A queen sleeper sofa with a comfy memory foam mattress provides extra sleeping space for your party. This room is filled with antiques along with many of Dicksie's original photos, art, and mementos. From the Great Room, step into a hall and just past a stack washer/dryer you'll access the first bathroom, complete with a shower. Just past the bathroom, you'll enter a pine-paneled bedroom that features a comfy queen bed with a thick plaid comforter that you will want to sink into. Several antiques and a big closet add to the cabin comfort of the room. Back in the Great Room, you'll find the door to the second bedroom. This rustic bedroom features the original log cabin walls, a wood-beamed ceiling and french doors to the large screened porch. A country quilt covers this full bed and a twin trundle beneath adds to a spot for the little ones. Golden oak antiques give you a spot to settle in for your stay. Now step into the attached bath and you are really in for a treat. You'll love the original extra long clawfoot tub for hot soaking bubble baths. A shower ring and attachment have been added if it is showering that you prefer. Head back into the Great Room toward the front of the cabin for the best part! A large screened front porch spans the entire front of the MacCracken cabin. You'll love the gorgeous views of Lake Estes and the backdrop of Longs Peak along with the Continental Divide. Wicker seating provides the perfect spot to hang out with friends or curl up with a book. A corner table provides the perfect spot to play a game of checkers. The MacCracken Homestead is a real treat - you'll feel like you are at camp. There is no air conditioning but fresh mountain breezes and fans for each room will keep you cool at night. Book the experience of one of Estes Park's original historic cabins!
