This Mountain Life @ Redemption Cabin is an authentic rocky mountain village experience. It's an intimate, upscale, natural retreat.
For celebrations, outdoor adventure, perfect peace and complete rest.
Top walkable downtown location.
All season Redemption Cabin is a "smart" historical cabin where its guests feel pampered and challenged, refreshed and inspired.
It affords travelers the unique opportunity to experience authentic mountain village life and endless outdoor adventure from one easily-accessible place.
Inside the cabin you are transported to a simpler, quieter time. It's a storybook experience of search and discovery. The cabin is cozy, comfortable and private. Without pretense, it presents first-class character at every detail.
Outdoors, a feeling of romantic loveliness permeates Redemption's crisp mountain air. You are caught in a poetic picture, an eloquent hymn, a sublime garden all arranged with infinite care, an ancient anthem to the Creator. Fresh verses come to mind that renew and sustain. Like Emerson, Burroughs, Muir, Mills and Fogelberg, our guests are awed by the gentleness and grandeur of the surrounding snowcapped massifs and forested steeps, the deeply cut granite gorges and chaos canyons, the winding streams and hanging alpine lakes. They never feel so strong and alive as from a rocky perch high in the sky. Freedom like most never know.
Redemption Cabin is a "perfect mix of location and amenities." See what other guests say at the end of our Introduction.
It is best suited for singles, couples, friends (up to 3 adults), and small families (up to 3) seeking adventure, revival, or natural escape.
Redemption resides in a picture perfect natural setting. Bright sunny mornings. Moonlit evenings. The cabin is sheltered under the rocky crags and cliffs of Little Prospect Mountain at the southern tip of downtown Estes where two famous snow-fed mountain streams merge. The cabin is on the east riverside Big Thompson leg. The area is travelled by feet, bikes, horse drawn carriages, cars, tubes, canoes, and kayaks.
It has a mature natural landscape with lumpy boulders and rocky ridges, old growth trees, dappled sunlight, singing birds, roaming wildlife, and rushing sounds of emerald water as clear and cold as the high-mountain glaciers that feed it. Rainbow trout included. For more, read Redemption's Neighborhood.
The Cabin is fully stocked with important details. The kitchen, beds, bath and comfort amenities are all new. We provide all the essentials and more, pantry supplies, kitchen condiments, teas and coffee, luxury hotel towels & linens, special lighting, and quality finishes throughout. Not to be missed, we also share our private collection of navigational maps and adventure books, fly fishing gear, mountain bike, golf clubs, local knowledge, and top area picks.
The Hosts keep the cabin exceptionally clean, Eco-friendly, and smoke-free.
With Redemption, you also get a "great walkable location". Getting downtown is a simple downstream stroll along a cabin filled lane. There you will find the best of local attractions, festivals, restaurants, coffee houses, wineries, craft beer breweries, retail shopping, green parks, outdoor concerts, riverwalks, hiking paths, and other exciting places to be active or quiet.
We invite you to experience Redemption and it's spectacular environment, unforgettable moments, and perfect rest. We will do all we can to insure your senses are ignited, body refreshed, heart rejuvenated, and your life perfectly reset; the promise of Redemption at its best.

HISTORY- - - Circa 1914, Redemption Cabin has had a storied existence. It's living history. The cabin logs were harvested, hauled to site, cut, stacked, spiked & chinked into walls by pioneers in the likes of John Cleave- the Park's first permanent merchant, Enos Mills- the naturalist credited as the Father of Rocky Mountain National Park, and F.O. Stanley- the industrialist, co-inventor of the Stanley Steamer and visionary who had a big hand in shaping Estes Park as it is today. Despite all the change of the past 100 years, Redemption Cabin, shroud in nature's glory & simple humility, is still one of the most wild and beautiful places anywhere.
Both Redemption and Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) just celebrated their 100 year anniversaries.

Redemption Cabin is the sweet fruit of an adventure story. We like to share it.
Rick, a romantic renaissance man, fell to the "Spell of the Rockies” while a young professional in Dallas, USA. He was privileged to travel and work in many great cities. Yet, after accepting the existence of God and growing with each family Colorado get-a-way, the allure of the rocky Estes Region made all other dreams fade in comparison. Everything changed about his approach to living life. Rick now resides in Estes Park, Colorado with Cheryl, his Texas bluebonnet "birds & words" sweetheart. They have 3 awesome children who have remained close to them in Colorado.
A few years ago, while preparing for a new era of adventure and discovery, Rick and Cheryl took on the task of restoring 3 connected “Old Estes” mountain traveler cabins. They are clustered at the foot of America’s divine Rocky Mountain National Park in the heart of Colorado’s sublime Estes Region.
This new mountain life of theirs is about exploration, reflection and redemption.
Sometimes they open up “Redemption Cabin” to family, friends, and out of town quests. Rick & Cheryl are the caretakers and attend to every detail. Their House Rules are short and simple. They reflect common sense policies and mutual respect.

Great cabin, great host, great location!
We had a great stay at this cabin! It was clean, fresh, and comfortable! The bed was very comfortable and the linens and towels were of great quality. Rick was a great host. He provided good recommendations on things to do and the cabin was full of information about the park and surrounding areas. This cabin also has a great trail right out the back door that is just a short climb to the top which over looks the town with great views of the mountains. The location of this cabin was also perfect. Short drive to RMNP and a short walk to downtown. We would definitely go back! Stayed: September 2015

This is a lovely cabin. All the amenities you want including a very well stocked and modern kitchen and bathroom. The location is perfect for walking to main street in Estes. Rick is a great host, available but not intrusive. Will definitely be returning to enjoy this gem.

Great Place to Stay in Estes!
Rick's cabin is the perfect location for Estes...walking distance to the river, a park, downtown, restaurants, shopping, groceries, etc. The cabin is well appointed with a well stocked kitchen and lots of nice touches (hiking books, teapot/tea out on the counter). Rick is a wonderful host, recommending hikes and things to do that were perfect for our family. We highly recommend Redemption on a River. We've been to Estes many times, and this is by far our favorite location and accommodation. Stayed: July 2015

RELAX RECONNECT & REJUVENATE.
Historic, unique, quaint, cozy, warm and comfortable. A fantastic base camp for exploring Estes and surrounding areas. My wife and I spent three days and three nights relaxing at Redemption Cabin, celebrating a birthday, visiting RMNP, and exploring Estes. Cabin owner Rick is a fantastic host. Easy to connect with, made sure we had everything we needed, recommended some terrific restaurants and made us feel like old friends. We loved it and didn’t want to leave it. If you want to slow down, walk Estes and rejuvenate this is the spot! Stayed: March 2015
Thanksgiving in Estes Park at Redemption Cabin.
As I reflect back on our Thanksgiving Holiday, there is no time more fitting than now to express our gratitude, thank you, Rick. Redemption Cabin represents an earlier time in Estes Park combined with all the modern amenities of today. The cabin is clean, warm, and inviting. It was everything I expected and much more.
Redemption Cabin is not just a cabin in the Rocky Mountains. Upon entering this "gem" you feel like you are entering a home....yours for the duration of your stay. I would recommend a stroll along the village's River Walk either early in the morning, late afternoon, or early evening. Will we return? Definitely. Stayed: November 2014

Peace and Relaxation at Redemption Cabin.
My wife and I stayed at Redemption Cabin for a couple nights and loved it. Rick, the cabin owner, was very nice and accommodating during our stay. The cozy and historic cabin is just a block or so south of the "old downtown" shopping and restaurant area. I loved that there was a couple options for heating the cabin. My wife loved looking through some of the old books that are strewn throughout. The TV/DVR came in handy one rainy evening. We had a great time and look forward to staying again in the future. Thank You, Rick! Stayed: October 2014

What a unique jewel in the heart of Estes Park!
We stayed two nights in the Redemption Cabin, and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about property owner Rick and his cabin. Between the historical design of the cabin and the antique décor, the Redemption Cabin makes you feel like you went back to early 1900's Colorado. Its location is just a short walk to town, but it is tucked away in a spot that makes you feel secluded. There is a rock bluff behind that cabin that is easily climbed for an unbelievable view of Estes Park. Each evening, we sat on top of the bluff and watched the sunset over Estes Park. It was an experience you would never be able to replicate in a condo or hotel. The view from the bluff is priceless. Stayed: October 2014
My friend and I had a fabulous stay at Redemption Cabin. It's charm and modern amenities made for great lodging. Our host, Rick, sought out our needs and questions for enhancing our stay at Estes Park. Location is fabulous, listening to the river in the background as you relax at the end of the day. Kitchen is fully stocked for any cooking need that may arise. Stayed: August 2014
Wonderful Rocky Mountain Find.
Our family of four, which includes two children ages 6 and 9, stayed at Redemption Cabin for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have stayed at four locations and this was by far our favorite. Rick has created a warm, inviting home with many small touches that made our stay comfortable and relaxing. Young climbers will especially love the boulders behind the cabin. We were a close walk to downtown Estes Park and a short drive to RMNP each day. We highly recommend Redemption Cabin! Stayed: July 2014
Very, Very Nice and Charming.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was just as described and Rick was very welcoming and helpful. He is very knowledgeable about all things in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. The cabin is vey cozy and comfortable. It is in a great location and you can walk to town. We would love to return sometime.
My husband and I returned to Estes park for our second honeymoon to celebrate 16 years together. This was the perfect cabin, great personality and attention to detail with unique antique decor that reflects the history of the cabin and town. Downtown Estes is within walking distance and we loved the river walk along the shoppes and restaurants. Short drive to the Rocky Mountain national park making a day hike ending with nice dinner and glass of vino in town a perfect day. Great place to get away. Rick was very helpful with recommendations and making sure we were comfortable, great host!! We also loved hearing the Big Thompson river outside the cabin. Highly recommend this quaint cabin for some R&R. Stayed: June 2014
Quaint and Cozy.
This is the perfect little cabin for a romantic getaway where a couple can be close to the great outdoors and also a short walk to the quaint shops and boutiques of Estes Park. The cabin is extremely well designed with every detail thought out - including the homemade ready to bake cookie dough in the refrigerator. Furthermore, Rick, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating and ready to assist be it with outdoor activity or restaurant recommendations. Stayed: May 2014

Perfect Colorado Cabin.
This was our first visit to Colorado and what a jewel we found in Estes Park! Redemption Cabin is cozy, warm, beautifully decorated. Rick was especially hospitable showing us the great view of the town atop the rocks behind the cabin and lending us a couple of backpacks for our hike at RMNP. The attention to detail in this cabin was unsurpassable from the quality bedding and kitchenware to the stocked pantry! The location of the cabin was convenient too! It is in walking distance to restaurants, shops and Estes Park all by way of a lovely river walk, so no need for a car! We had a great stay and hope to come back to Redemption cabin again! Stayed: May 2014

Great time for the whole family.
We spent a wonderful 4 days at Redemption cabin. Our two kids (ages 5 and 3) had a great time as well. The cabin is cozy, nicely done and very clean.
Rick was the best host one could hope for and made us feel right at home, identifying activities for the kids as well. Kids had a great time with Cody (Rick's dog). We do not have a pet at home, so the kids were very curious but apprehensive. They still talk about Cody.
The location is very good - walking distance to the town and an easy drive to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Highly recommended! Stayed: August 2013
