With the snowy peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park as a backdrop, this charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin offers the best in high altitude living. The Spirit of this home invites you to experience its fusion of the rustic and traditional... with all of the modern conveniences. As you walk down the path to the cabin, you will feel at home right away with the first of 3 patios for hanging out in the mountain air.

From the moment you step in the door, you will love the Lazy Elk's bold rugged charm and its open concept great room, dining area and large kitchen. The homeowner has just repainted the entire interior of the home! The western-influenced great room features gorgeous hardwood floors, a floor-to-ceiling wood-burning stone fireplace, large light-filled windows, and beamed vaulted ceilings. You will want to sink into the delightful mountain chic furnishings, put your feet up and enjoy the large flat screen TV next to the fireplace. The sofa is a Queen sleeper sofa. This is a great cabin for family or friends to kick back, relax and enjoy a Rocky Mountain escape!

You can expect great meals at the rustic dining table that is surrounded by 6 canary yellow bistro chairs. A sliding glass door leads to the second patio where you can sit and listen to the summer breezes rustling through the aspen leaves. Or watch the snowflakes fall during the winter evenings while you dine. The kitchen is extra spacious and offers touches of vintage decor throughout. You will appreciate the modern stainless steel appliances including double ovens. The new stainless steel refrigerator is a plus! Dishes, cookware and convenient small appliances complete this nature-infused vacation home. With the open design, there is plenty of room for everyone to hang around the kitchen to share food and good times. At the end of the kitchen is a breakfast bar for 2 - perfect for morning coffee and watching the wildlife wander through the yard - especially the wild turkeys known to the neighborhood! 

Just off the kitchen, a bathroom with a granite-topped vanity and shower shares space with a full-size washer/dryer for doing a bit of laundry during your stay. The beautiful hardwood floors continue throughout the open hallway and the three bedrooms. The first bedroom at the left features a sumptuous Queen bed and a lofty shelf with whimsical vintage decor. The spacious second bedroom features a King bed and a convenient chest of drawers for unpacking. A sliding glass door opens from this bedroom to a long covered patio - perfect for summer hangouts. The playful third bedroom features a daybed with a trundle that can sleep 2. The second bathroom offers a shower/tub combo and hickory cabinetry topped with a granite counter-top. You'll love the surrounding aspen grove as you relax or dine outside at the patio table and chairs. A propane grill is provided for those summer BBQs.

The cabin is less than 2 miles (5 minutes) from Rocky Mountain National Park and 2 miles to Estes Park. The Lazy Elk Retreat is the perfect Rocky Mountain getaway! Book it now to get the best dates whether you want a winter escape or a summer adventure!
