Writing up an Airbnb Estes Park guide today! Estes Park is pretty much the gateway to the Rocky Mountain National Park and is a super picturesque place to stay. Nearby, you’ll have access to a number of natural wonders, from Longs Peak and Lake Estes to Roosevelt National Forest.
The town is fun too—think taco trucks, Thai restaurants, bars, and breweries. Staying here is definitely not about the hotels. There are so many cozy historical cabin rentals (and modern ones, too) that it would be crazy to pass up on the opportunity of staying in one of them.
So, to give you an idea of what to expect, I’m sharing my favorite Airbnbs in Estes Park!

This large, modern, super clean cabin has a location on the Big Thompson River with stunning views. I'm all about those high ceilings and modern furnishings.
There's an outdoor hot tub for evening soaks among the tranquillity of nature; there's an outdoor dining area; there's a cozy fireplace inside, too. It's an easy walk to downtown from this cool Airbnb—so you can explore the restaurants and bars.
This 1BR Downtown cabin is a great option if you're a couple looking to book somewhere cute and secluded near Rocky Mountains National Park. It's basically like a tiny home, but with the countryside touch of a cabin.

This is an Estes Park cabin with a difference. It's like a super contemporary take on a lodge or cabin style home—and I'm 100% into it.
