The perfect Colorado newly rebuilt log cabin for family vacation or romantic getaway. October 21, 2020 the East Troublesome Fire burned our cabin along with many other cabins and homes. After two years of hard work our cabin, Whispering Pines Lodge, is ready to be booked. Whispering Pines Lodge is bigger and better, close to Rocky Mountain National Park and is your perfect year around getaway providing many recreational opportunities including boating, fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to name a few. This get-a-way cabin is nestled in the mountains at 8,700 feet between Rocky Mountain National Park and Arapaho National Forest, where the elk and moose roam freely. This relaxing cabin is located by Sun Valley Lake (a private 22-acre non-motorized lake), just a few miles North of Grand Lake, Colorado where you can use the owner’s boats and bikes.
Relax enjoying all the comforts of home including fully equipped kitchen with dish washer, refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, washer & dryer, coffee makers, toaster, and many more conveniences. The dining area has a large dining table that will seat 12 and an island counter that seats 4. Enjoy a good night sleep on our quality mattresses. The cabin features two levels with the main level having two bedrooms (the Elk room with King bed & bunk beds and the Bear room with a king bed.) The lower level has three bedrooms (The Moose room has a King bed with bunk beds. The Cowboy Bunkroom has a Queen bed, and a Full bed with a Twin bed above it. And the Mountain room has a queen bed and twin bunk beds. The cabin main level offers a wide-open area with a loft which has a log futon couch and chair for extra guests. For an extra discount we can close off the lower area, where you would only use the main level. For your convenience and laundry needs washing supplies are provided. No smoking inside and no pets.
Those who enjoy the outdoors will truly appreciate our Whispering Pines Lodge. Watch Elk graze in the front meadow off our decks or occasionally see Mule deer. If you are lucky, you may even see a Moose wander by the cabin or down by the lake. You can also drive in to RMNP and observe mule deer, big horn sheep, moose as well as elk and sometime a bear. Hikers, bikers, motorcyclists, and ATV riders have access to many miles of trails in Arapaho National Forest and RMNP is for hikers only. For winter fun, enjoy 130 miles of groomed snowmobile trails just yards from our cabin. For snowmobile or RTV renting, "On the Trial Rentals" is just 1/2 mile from cabin. Winding River Resort, also 1/2 from cabin, offers horseback rides into RMNP.
Anglers have access to our private annually stocked, trout lake by our cabin (no fishing license required.) If river fishing is more your style the Colorado River is only 300 yards away. Other activities within a few minutes of the lodge include golfing, sledding, white water rafting, snow-skiing (Winter Park and Granby Ranch), snowmobiling and cross-country skiing, and hunting.
