25 miles from Estes Park & entrance to RMNP
3 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park at Wild Basin
is located in the inviting mountain neighborhood of Raymond Colorado, which rolls along the
Middle St. Vrain River and is a collection of unique cabins, cottages, pine and aspen.
Because of our altitude, we always recommend spending at least 1 night in lower near by elevation
to get acclimated. Read here for more
information about altitude sickness.
There are residents who live here year round as well as seasonal cabins. There is a small store "in town"...hours and offerings vary...perhaps a good spot to grab a cold pop as you head out for the day.
You'll see people strolling with their dogs
or riding their bikes along the residential street.
The cabin property is an un-fenced riverside acre butting up to Roosevelt National Forest. Remember there is no cell service in this area nor any marked trails in the forest, so if you explore that direction be sure to check the weather first, tell someone where you are
going and dress / pack accordingly.
From the cabin, you can see neighbors to the north,
a few seasonal log cabins...and you cannot see the neighbors to the south.
Fishing, catch and release, is possible here with a license.
Not far, you can still Go Explore so much more!
