We’ve talked about Estes park before, but I wanted to talk about the cabins today. Many people go the traditional route and stay in one of the more well-known hotels or resorts in the colorful Estes Park, Colorado area. But you are missing out on a lot of the natural experience if you do not stay in a cabin or resort. Choosing to stay in one of the cabins offers you a chance to see the beautiful sites “up close and personal” and take in the fresh mountain air in style.
I talked to the owner of Fawn Valley Cabins recently and he told me about their amenities. They offer a lot of amenities that make your stay truly unique and enjoyable, such as hot tubs on the deck, 2-bedroom cabins with WI-FI access, and cell phone service (very important to a traveling writer with online publishers!) I was very impressed with their offerings so you might want to check that one out. Their website shows some of the beautiful scenery you will encounter while there and I got the sense that it is similar to a “bed and breakfast.”
Estes Park Main Attractions
Estes Park’s natural outdoor beauty is reason enough to go. It’s an excellent opportunity for writers, artists, and photographers to take some of the best photos or write some of the best descriptive pieces of their careers. I’m a writer myself, so I love to go to places that show off Nature’s glory as you see at Estes Park. But, in addition to this, there is also plenty of shopping, dining, and sightseeing to behold as well.
