Great place to unplug and hear nothing but the wind and owls at night. Great hiking within minutes, close to Estes Park. Comfy home with great amenities.

This property offers a beautiful view, close proximity to the park, and a relaxed atmosphere. We were unfortunately here during the recent outbreak of wildfires, but were still able to enjoy our stay. Numerous trails are accessible from this location, and we enjoyed them thoroughly. I would highly recommend this property.

We loved staying here, as it is very spacious & lots of basic necessities are provide. There is no cell service which would’ve been much more convenient as we were not able to use GPS or contact places in Estes Park until we got close to the city. It was kept very clean & we would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed the Big Owl cabin. The photos on the site are good, but in real life its even better.

We stayed in this very comfortable cabin with our four adult children. It was a wonderful place for a get away, very convenient to hiking trails, Rocky Mountain National Park and going into Estes Park for dinner. Also used the grill one night and had ample utensils, cookware to cook a nice meal. Would definitely recommend it and use it again if we get the chance!

This is a great cabin, with lots of space and in a beautiful setting. The three bedrooms, with loft and basement provided our family of four (two 18 year olds) lots of space and privacy. We didn't realize that there is no cell service at the cabin, and it was a little tough for two teenagers to be completely off the grid, but appreciated the use of the land line to make phone calls. Proximity to Estes Park for grocery and internet access was useful. Very beautiful area.
Thank you for your review, Barbara! We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement. We have made sure to stand out there is no WiFi and no cell service available at this home for our future guests.

Secluded, quiet home nestled in a valley of Aspens. It is close to everything you want to do in Estes Park. Cabin was exactly as described. Only downfall was we could not find cushions for the outdoor seating. Basement is too musty to enjoy.

Big Owl is well appointed, comfortable and quiet. Smell the fresh, cool breeze coming through the lodge pole pines. Watch wildlife from the wraparound deck or balcony. Listen to the aspen leaves flutter and the hummingbirds chatter. We were able to watch 3 different moose from the dining table during our visit. Squirrels, rabbits, birds, chipmunks, etc. are also frequent visitors. Did I mention that the house is great? I should have. It is.

I Liked how private it was and the look also not far from Estes park

Myself and three of my buddies booked this to be near Longs Peak trail for hiking. We have zero complaints about the place. It was clean, well stocked and a perfect location. It’s close enough to Estes Park for an easy drive to food or necessities but far enough away to feel like you are getting away from it all. There is so much to do nearby we didn’t even notice the lack of wifi availability. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved just about everything during our stay.

We had a winter girls weekend with our bookclub and truly enjoyed this lovely home. It was quiet, beautiful and well-kept. Most notably, one of my friends was stuck in the snow while trying to leave to go home and Craig (the caretaker) and his friend spent almost an hour towing her van up the road in the ice-covered slick snow. We really appreciated his kindness and he truly went above and beyond to make sure we were all safe and exited with no difficulties. I strongly recommend this property for anyone looking for a quiet getaway in a serene forest! Thank you Craig and the owners for a lovely stay!!

The cabin is very comfortable. Great location to get away but close enough to Estes Park if you need something
