The cabins in Estes Park often remind me of the classic, American-style, road-trip vacation. I think of Chevy Chase in the movie, Vacation, taking to the road in the old station wagon for an adventure out west. The cabins in Estes are everything you’d imagine when you dream of a rustic old cabin. Some of them are actual log cabins with white chinking between the logs. Others are painted red, more like a cottage with shutters and flower boxes under the windows. Either way, you and your family are bound to enjoy the lodging Estes Park has to offer. Living like people did many years ago is fun no matter how old you are.
When was the last time you actually built a fire in a stone fire place? Or how about fishing with a cane pole for trout? Have you ever seen a bear other than on T.V.? If you’re looking for something different this summer that’s not the same old type of vacation you’ve taken in years past, consider the cabins in Estes Park.
During the day, when you head out the door, adventure is just steps away. Many of the resorts have horseback riding, games, stocked fishing ponds, and more. Plus, Rocky Mountain National Park is never far away. Once inside the Park, your opportunities are endless. With dozens and dozens of trails to choose from, there are great hikes for every skill level. If you want a challenge get up early and hit the trail head for Long’s Peak with towering more than 14,000 feet above sea level, the views from the top are spectacular. On a clear day, you can actually see Pike’s Peak more than 120 miles to the south near Colorado Springs. It’s not uncommon in Colorado to see more than 250 miles from the top of a fourteener.
