"Located In RMNP past both National Park check points. It is situated right on the edge of Beaver Meadows with great views. The unit has been newly updated, has new furniture, and very clean. We stayed for two nights, but wished we had booked for longer. Would definitely stay here again."

"Our family of four had an incredible experience at Niwot Cabin. First of all, the cabin is situated inside the park! The location makes it a rare gem since only a handful of cabins are allowed within the park. That means you can skip long lines to enter the Bear Lake Coordidor each day. Once you are in your cabin, there are endless opportunities to explore around the location. My husband and I spent hours exploring the property and came across one of our favorite spots in the park right up from the cabin. You can easily see wildlife from the front porch, and the rocks behind the cabin make for wonderful climbing for children and adults. They even bring horseback tours right in front of the cabin daily. The cabin accommodates a family of four nicely. It's updated and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is stocked well for cooking, and there are eating areas inside and outside the cabin. The cabin is also very close to a giant park and ride that will take you straight to the different trailheads in The Bear Lake Corridor. Be sure to check out Bear Lake and the nearby falls. They are gorgeous! Overall, our family rates our stay at the cabin as one of our most memorable family vacations. We are already talking about returning. Trust me; you will not be disappointed! The view from the living room window will take your breath away!"

"Great family vacation at Niwot Cabin. The views are amazing and this is the most relaxing cabin we have ever stayed in. The area is surrounded by some great wildlife. Several trials for hiking or mountain biking. Everyone we met told us how lucky we were to stay inside Estes Park and at this wonderful cabin. Our only regret was that we stayed only two days due to other travel plans. If we would have known how great this place was we would have made initial plans to stay more days. We are now making plans to get back as soon as possible. We highly recommend a stay in the Niwot Cabin in Estes Park."

"Stayed a week in this cabin with family of four. Easy access from the Park entrance and quick drive into Estes Park. Views of Moraine valley are awesome, right out the main cabin windows. Tons of wildlife all around, saw lots of elk and even a moose in the valley. Various hiking trails are accessible from the cabin, either by foot or short drive. Great family vacation!"

"We stayed at the Niwot Cabin last week and it was such an incredible experience for my family and me. We felt like we were living in a Thomas Kinkade painting with the lush mountainous surroundings, and the wildlife all around us in Moraine Park. We saw more wildlife at the cabin than we did anywhere else in the National Park. There is a beautiful stream with a waterfall nearby that we were able to see a Moose standing in, and there are hiking trails just a few steps from the door. We also enjoyed the horseback riding tour through the mountains in the park. The cabin itself was just perfect for us. The beds were comfortable, we had plenty of room for all four of us (two adults and two children), and we made some amazing memories there. All of the local people we talked to inside of the park and outside knew which cabin we were staying in when we described it and every one of them said they wished they had been able to stay there themselves and had always wondered who owned it because the location is so perfect. I highly recommend a stay in the Niwot Cabin and hope we will be able to stay there again too!"
