Mountainbrooks Ranch Boulder Cabin is one of 2 cabins (also see Mountainbrooks Aspen Cabin) on our family guest ranch located on 9 acres with trees, meadows, streams, and wildlife—just 3 miles north of Allenspark and 12 miles south of Estes Park, Colorado, on Highway 7 near Rocky Mountain National Park. This modest, rustic, and quirky cabin is great for a quiet mountain getaway or a family vacation. We also have free WiFi, free USA long distance phone service, and a TV with Chromecast streaming.

The space
Mountainbrooks Ranch is a family-owned guest ranch which has been in operation each year since the late 1940s. Boulder Cabin is a modest, rustic, and quirky mountain cabin in a wildlife area - not a new luxury condo or hotel. The surrounding acreage is a delightful sample of high-country beauty just off the world-famous Peak to Peak Highway.

Please take a look at our photos which were all taken on the Mountainbrooks Ranch property. Please note that interior photos usually make rooms appear larger and better than they are. For example, the kitchen and bathroom in Boulder Cabin are small rooms - and some rooms have stained ceilings or floors from water and other damage years ago. Over the years, we have put our efforts into function instead of appearance. So the roof, fixtures, and appliances are all in good working order, but paint and other finish details have a lower priority (like many old mountain cabins). But unlike many old mountain cabins, Boulder Cabin has free WiFi internet service and free long distance phone service to anywhere in the USA. There is also a TV with a Chromecast device so that you can stream on the TV any compatible video services that you have on your smartphone like YouTube or Netflix. In 2020, we were finally able to get faster internet service.

In 2019 we installed new flooring in the kitchen, bathroom and porch room. The new luxury vinyl floors look like maple wood or gray stone. We did not disturb the previously-existing wood floors in the living room and bedrooms. We updated some of the fixtures in the bathroom and repainted the bedrooms. We also applied new stain to all of the exterior walls of the cabin.

Boulder Cabin was actually built on a very large boulder! Although the floor is very slightly sloped, it has never moved. The story is that it was started as a project for a high-school shop class in the late 1940's. Granddaddy bought the property and hired a builder to complete the cabin and the beautiful fireplace after the class had abandoned the project. But since the floor had already been built, it was left with the slight slope.

Both bedrooms have private doors to a very small hallway which leads to the bathroom and the living room. There is a large sofa in the living room and a single bed in the porch room. Each bedside has an extension cord (for your phone charger or other electronic device) and a lamp for each person.

There is a small deck outside the porch room's back door which is a nice place to sit and enjoy the meadow with its very large ponderosa pine trees.

Our cabins are cleaned and checked before and after each guest. However, there is no way to prevent occasional bugs, moths, flies, mice, etc. from getting inside the cabin - or in any mountain cabin! We sometimes keep a covered mouse trap hidden behind the trash can in the kitchen. We just want to make sure you are aware of this.

Where you’ll be

Allenspark, Colorado, United States

Granddaddy called our property Mountainbrooks Ranch. The property has been owned by our family since the late 1940’s. We consider it very special. We would like to be here all summer if not for our other commitments. It is our home away from home. Mountainbrooks Aspen Cabin and Mountainbrooks Boulder Cabin, at elevation 8,500 feet, are located just off the Peak to Peak Highway near the Rocky Mountain National Park, the Roosevelt National Forest, Allenspark, and Estes Park, Colorado. Relax on the property among the trees, meadows, streams, and wildlife or adventure in the mountains nearby!

A lawyer can also be a musician! ...and a mediator, a teacher, a business owner, and a proud father... I like to keep lots of irons in the fire. That way I can put a lot of heart into what I am doing and I don't get burned out on any one thing. I am the owner and host of a family-owned guest ranch with two vacation cabins between Allenspark and Estes Park in Colorado. We call the property Mountainbrooks Ranch and my family has operated it since the late 1940s. My wife (and Co-Host), Faeda, and I have also enjoyed visiting other Airbnb listings as guests during our travels. We prefer Airbnb listings over hotels. I am an attorney with a private practice in Fort Worth, Texas, and I am also a professional guitar instructor, a member of a band, a qualified mediator, a graduate-level mediation trainer, the owner of a mediation and training business, a former adjunct college professor, the president of a professional association, a licensed pilot, the executive director and founder of an educational and charitable 501 (c) (3) community music organization, and a devoted husband and proud father.
