Enjoy peace and tranquility on ten private acres in our secluded mountain hideaway. Moss Brook Cabin is a 3br sanctuary in a magical forest with abundant trees, jaw dropping views, a gorgeous stream, and lots of wildlife. It’s a place to unwind and recenter. Ten miles from downtown Estes Park, but in an entirely different world.


  • 10 heavily forested acres
  • 500 yards to Park boundary
  • Wildlife abound
  • Incredible views
  • Private stream
  • Isolated and secluded

The owners bought this home nearly twenty years ago with a dream to retire in it and spend their evenings watching the sun gracefully set over the Rockies after the kids moved out of the house. They’ve got a few years to go, so in the meantime, they’d like to invite you to live that dream of theirs!

Moss Brook Cabin sits on ten completely secluded acres teeming with wildlife and huge pine trees, with enormous picture windows everywhere so you can enjoy the most epic landscapes imaginable. There’s a gorgeous creek bisecting the lot with a small picnic table next to it so you can dine with your family while listening to the sound of the water. The deck offers some of the most breathtaking views anywhere near Estes Park.

There are almost no vacation homes around that offer this kind of privacy and mountain experience. If you’re looking for a true secluded mountain getaway, this is it. Moss Brook is a special place.

The owners spent early 2020 giving our home a bit of a facelift to create an even more relaxing sanctuary than it was before. Improvements include:

  • Fresh paint throughout
  • New rugs
  • New linens and bedding
  • New outdoor living amenities

You will enjoy 3 bedrooms (a queen, king and full), a living room, laundry room, kitchen with picture windows, dining area, and a gorgeous moss rock fireplace that’s the centerpiece of the first floor of the home.

The deck has a great grill so you can stare at Twin Sisters Mountain as you BBQ, and the magical lot will bring peace to our soul. Our favorite part of the home is, of course, its seclusion. You won’t see or hear anyone during your stay. The property is ten miles from Estes Park, with views straight into two huge mountains. There’s no light pollution, so you’ll likely see more stars each night than most people have in their lives.

Moss Brook offers 3 bedrooms, each with an attached private bathroom.

There’s a large king bedroom on the main floor of the house, closest to the property’s namesake Moss Brook. If you’re looking to fall asleep to the sounds of a the creek’s rolling waterfalls, this is the place to rest your head. A second bedroom with a full size mattress faces two huge picture windows with views straight into the forest. This is a good option for the kids who’ll be excited to peek out into the woods for bears, elk, deer, bobcat, or, if they’re lucky, a mountain lion. A super cute second floor queen bedroom lies at the same level of the forest canopy. You’ll fall asleep to the wind howling through the pine trees, and you’ll feel like you’re in a treehouse.

The deck is a hallmark of our home, with views, views, and more views. It’s raised up a full story above the walkout unfinished basement, so you can see through the forest below and to the mountains above. The owners provide outdoor seating and a grill. Relaxing out here will make you feel like you’re in a wildlife sanctuary — the national park boundary is about 1500 feet away, so while the property technically isn’t part of the park, it feels like it is.

In the living room, a sectional couch partially encircles a gorgeous moss-rock fireplace. During winter snowstorms you’ll love lighting a raging fire and watching the warm glow dance on the walls. Feel free to enjoy a massive book and games collection, or simply settle in for a movie on the flat screen television.

In the dining area, the picture windows afford the same jaw dropping views as in the rest of the house. The owners have spent countless mornings sipping coffee as the sky comes alive.

A short way down the hill from the home is Moss Brook. On its bank sits a picnic table in a shaded area nestled in the pine trees. The sounds are incredibly peaceful, especially during the early summer when the snow begins to melt.

A mountain-modern kitchen has everything you need to prepare an incredible meal. It features a range, a full sized fridge/freezer, a microwave, dishwasher, lots of small appliances, cutlery, dishes, utensils, bowls/pots/pans and virtually anything else you may need or want.

There’s also a laundry room with a washer and a dryer that you are free to use. 


We watched a bobcat chase a rabbit right outside the living room window. We were awoken to the sounds of elk bugling every morning and watched a herd walk through the property on their way up the mountain for the day.

You have to see this place to believe it. The peace and tranquility of the mountains and location are just amazing. BEST sleep I’ve had in years. Our party of four all agreed. Amazing views from all windows.


My family and I have stayed in numerous VRBO rentals but this one tops them all. We were looking for a private cabin in the mountains and this one exceeded our expectations . Beautiful, comfortable and well kept cabin with all the amenities we needed.


Staying at this house was amazing. The location was so secluded and private. I enjoyed coffee on the deck every morning in the total peace and quiet. The house was beyond well equiped and had so many little extras. The kids LOVED the books and games!


Winter Conditions

This home is secluded, near the end of a dirt road that gets heavy winter snow. It is plowed, but you will need AWD/4WD as well as winter-rated tires or chains. We cannot offer assistance if you get stuck.


Part of Moss Brook’s alure is its seclusion. As such, wildlife abounds. Ensure you do not leave anything with odor in your cars, as bears will find it and break in. Bear damage is expensive!

Fires & Smoking

High wids blow off the nearby peaks, so outdoor fires are strictly prohibited. So is smoking of any kind, either inside or out. Thank you for abiding by this important rule.
