The Surroundings


This Mountain Life cabins are 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. They sit 33 steps east of the Big Thompson’s river bank and a short riverside walk to the very best Estes Park has to offer.

Take in your beautiful mountain setting at the outdoor seating frontside or back. Or, take a short scramble up the rocky crags of Little Prospect Mountain for a spectacular panoramic view of a Continental Divide sunset, cup of tea in hand.

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