This Mountain Life Basecamp
is a beautiful blend of natural diversity, rugged frontier history, and luxury amenities.
Perfectly situated between dancing whitewater of the Big Thompson River and granite crags of Prospect Mountain, this historic Estes Park cabin compound has now been completely transformed into a serene Extraordinary Mountain Town Getaway and Grigsby Family Basecamp.
This Mountain Life Cabins present an ideal mix of location and amenities. The Cabins transport you to a simpler, quieter time and propel mountaintop vacation dreams into living color. Whether relaxing by the winding snow fed river or hitting the trails hard, This Mountain Life is flush with picture perfect moments and whole body wellness for all.
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. From towering Blue Spruce and Quaking Aspen to a Grand Champion Balsam Poplar stand. From Mountain Chickadees and Green Winged Swallows to Red Tailed Hawks. From Colorado Chipmunks to roaming Mule Deer, Black Bear and Wapiti Elk.
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 Park, Indian Peaks Wilderness, and Roosevelt National Forest are easily accessible by short drives.
This Mountain Life Basecamp located at the southern outskirts of Historic Downtown Estes Park on E Riverside Drive where the Big Thompson River turns north to meet Fall River. It’s 33 steps east of the Big Thompson’s river bank and a short riverside walk to downtown.
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.
