This historic cabin was built and owned by the first Park Ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park, Dixie MacCracken. Many of the antique furnishings and items in the cabin belonged to Dixie. If you are okay with floors that are a little uneven and true mountain rustic, you'll love this sweet cabin.

Enter the rustic cabin at the back door into the enclosed mudroom complete with the original wood box. The country kitchen is next with Dixie's original wood cookstove - this no longer works but is part of the historic charm. The spacious kitchen has all the modern appliances that you'll need to cook meals during vacation. The dining room, surrounded by windows that let in the mountain light, features a charming antique oak table for six people.

The Great Room is at the heart of the historic cabin. The first thing you notice in the Great Room is the original log walls, wood beamed ceiling and large stone fireplace. The fireplace is not operational but adds to the rustic authentic charm. A Queen sleeper sofa with a comfy memory foam mattress provides extra sleeping space for your party. This room is filled with antiques along with many of Dixie's original photos, art, and mementos. From the Great Room, step into a hall and just past a stack washer/dryer you'll access the first bathroom, complete with a shower. Just past the bathroom, you'll enter a pine-paneled bedroom that features a comfy Queen bed with a comfy quilt comforter that you will want to sink into. Several antiques and a big closet add to the cabin comfort of the room.

Just off of the Great Room is the door to the second bedroom. This rustic bedroom features original log cabin walls, a wood-beamed ceiling and French doors to the large screened porch. This bedroom contains a Full/Double bed with Twin trundle bed underneath. Golden oak antiques give you a spot to settle in for your stay. Now step into the attached bath and you are really in for a treat. You'll love the original extra long clawfoot tub for hot soaking bubble baths. A shower ring and attachment have been added if it is showering that you prefer.  

Head back into the Great Room toward the front of the cabin for the best part! A large screened front porch spans the entire front of the MacCracken cabin. You'll love the gorgeous views of Lake Estes and the backdrop of Longs Peak along with the Continental Divide. Wicker seating provides the perfect spot to hang out with friends or curl up with a book. A corner table provides the perfect spot to play a game of checkers. 

The MacCracken Homestead is a real treat - you'll feel like you are at camp. This cabin is historic and a true rustic experience with some modern day conveniences. There is no air conditioning but fresh mountain breezes and fans for each room will keep you cool at night. Book the experience of one of Estes Park's original historic cabins!
