Peaceful and Accessible.
This was my first experience using the VRBO website and I was not sure what to expect. You know when you look at brochure pictures, you wonder if the “real thing” will be what you expect. I can say that the pictures of Redemption Cabin were spot on….it was everything I was expecting and more! I wanted a peaceful, quiet getaway, and Redemption Cabin delivered. Downtown Estes Park was accessible within walking distance. The cabin is not isolated, but the area was quite peaceful and it felt rather secluded (which for me was a good thing!). The river is across the street and during my visit it was very active so I could sleep to the sound of rushing water.
The house itself is quaint and the Grigsbys did a great job of keeping an authentic 1914 cabin feel in terms of décor and style. They did put in brand new appliances in the kitchen. Other than a dusty floor (part of living in the dry atmosphere of the mountains), the place was immaculate. It is a small cabin – probably best for 2 people (maybe 3). It is ideal for the solo traveler.
The location of the cabin is ideal. It is close not only to the downtown area but it is also close to the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, YMCA of the Rockies, and more.
I have already recommended this place to several of my friends. I cannot give it a higher recommendation! Any VRBO from this point forward has a HUGE standard to live up to! I look forward to scheduling my next visit!
