This Mountain Life Basecamp

is a beautiful blend of natural diversity, rugged frontier history, and luxury amenities.

The Basecamp opens to wide open natural spaces, bluebird skies and sights and sounds of the “Big T”.  The compound sits among beautiful and diverse natural wildlife.

This landmark property was recently restored to its most excellent character and historical significance. It’s totally reconstructed with luxury creature comforts and finishes throughout. Each Cabin is extraordinary in its own special way. They are a great setup to write your story and to experience authentic “best days ever”.

Our Idyllic Setting


This Mountain Life rests on the historic E Riverside Drive of Estes Park CO tucked between river and rocks in a picture perfect setting with bright sunny mornings and moonlit evenings. It’s an area where life flows peaceably and the chipmunks, rabbits, mule deer and wapiti (elk) roam daily.


With rocky mountains surrounding us— the Lumpy Ridge to the north, the Continental Divide west, and Longs Peak south— world class mountaineering adventure is never far away.  All of Rocky Mountain National ParkIndian Peaks Wilderness, and Roosevelt National Forest are easily accessible by short drives.

Our Most
Desirable Location

For shops, eats, drinks, sweets and small-town culture, take a simple downstream stroll north along a cabin filled lane. Once downtown you will find the best of Estes Park restaurants, coffee houses, wineries, craft breweries, green parks, outdoor concerts, festivals, hiking paths and other exciting places to be active or quiet.
