“Charming 1814 Cabin: Lovingly Restored”

Super!

We stayed at Redemption on a River for six nights over the Labor Day holiday. From the initial time that I emailed Rick, his communication was timely, thorough, and thoughtful. Indeed, we chatted a couple times over the phone as well as texted each other.

He and his wife Cheryl have carefully restored / modernized this little cabin (which predates Rocky Mountain National Park by one year) while maintaining its authenticity. A couple of examples:

The small but efficient galley kitchen has been totally modernized - dishwasher, microwave, large refrigerator, range with an oven, granite countertops, plenty of pantry space. It's complete with new contemporary dishes and glassware, including wine glasses of varying sizes. Likewise, necessary utensils offer chefs their important tools. Minimal counter space
did not hamper us; our food prep was kept to coffee, fruit and yogurt.

On the other hand, the rest of the cabin exudes its 101 years of history. Old books abound (and serve aptly as decoration); most pieces of furniture would look perfectly at home in an antique store. Creative touches make use of appropriate aged and/ or local "stuff" -- a pair of wooden skis, old photos likely displaying a high school graduating class of young men 100 years ago, a worn leather suitcase serving as a medicine cabinet in the bathroom, finished tree stumps renewed as tables in the living room. Many more treasures speak of the owners' TLC in this restoration of Redemption.

We chose this cabin for its excellent location, smack in the middle of town within walking distance of Estes Park's shops, attractions and restaurants. You can't beat it! The parking spot could not have been any closer or more convenient.

One thing that we hadn't thought through? We were in Estes Park to attend our niece's wedding, necessitating dress attire two nights during our stay. This posed a couple of challenges, especially for the female member of our duo (moi!). Applying make-up was close to impossible. Silvered mirrors partnered with low lighting from the period lamps. Yikes. In addition, the clever suitcase medicine cabinet and its attendant mirror was hung too high for this vertically challenged woman. The top of my hair was all that I could see of my 5'. Naturally, this would not be an issue for most people going to Estes Park. (Who goes to the mountains to dress up? ). However, this is only meant to be cautionary tale: You might want to save this charming place for your laid back long weekend, flip flops and jeans.

Our family of three found this to be a perfect place to stay while visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a bit less expensive than our hotel in Golden CO and with the full kitchen it was much better for us. It also is cleaner than any hotel I have stayed in and I felt like we were 'at home'. I missed having a laundry but there are two great laundromats in Estes Park so no worries. Rick and Cheryl are superb hosts. We hope to return!

Great spot! Super clean rustic cabin with all the modern amenities.
Full kitchen to make your own gourmet food in.
3.5 miles from RMNP.
Absolutely loved this place.Perfect stay for couple traveling with one kid; though there was room for a second if needed. (We had the place to ourselves; no kids)

The owners are very cool - met them on the way out of town. They were available for any of our needs and did not fail to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Do yourselves a favor and book this place today!

The cabin was clean and well equipped and located in a convenient location. However if you're traveling with others that want to stay up late or early risers it could be an issue. The bedrooms do not have a door and the floors are extremely creaky. Rick kept in touch and was very helpful.

Just as advertised: Clean, well equipped, and situated in the very best location for a perfect mountain village get-a-way. Redemption Cabin has all the character of a hand finished old growth wooden floor, squeaks and all. Its a museum piece over 100 years old. Best regards, Rick

This is a great, quirky cabin in the heart of Estes park. Within walking distance to village and tons of restaurants. Comfortable beds, great kitchen with everything you need if you plan to cook. Right across from the Big Thompson river. Close to the park. If you like TV, there is no cable...only a DVD player. Great for relaxation though. Easy to work with owners who are eager to please. You won't be sorry if you stay here!
