We like to say, “All you need is food and clothing.” Each of our cabins is fully equipped with dinnerware, glassware, silverware, dishwasher, washer, and dryer. So, really, all you do need is food and clothing to enjoy our Estes Park cabins.

We also offer spectacular views of the Longs Peak and many other mountains. A small portion of our cabins are secluded. The majority of our cabins are built to have views. We are not near any other resorts, which makes a great opportunity to feel Solitude at the end of the day. We really try not to compare ourselves to other properties as each has something to offer. We are confident that if you stay at Solitude Cabins, you will enjoy the peace, amenities, and beautiful Rocky Mountain views.

Is Estes Park a ski area?
Estes Park is not a downhill ski area. Rocky Mountain National Park is known for hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing during the winter months. We are also only 1.5 hours from Eldora Ski Area, an easy day trip for family downhill skiing.
Is the wildlife tame?
The wildlife is not tame. All of the wildlife that you see are wild animals. Estes Park does not maintain a herd of elk as many believe. If you see wildlife in town or at Solitude you are a witness to nature at its very best.
Are the winters really cold and snow-filled?
Contrary to popular belief, the winters in Estes Park are very mild; and, as a matter of fact, we have lots of sunshine throughout the winter months. We often have warm temperatures in the 40’s during winter days. Estes Park does get snow but it doesn’t last for very long. It snows much more at upper elevations, so if you want to enjoy snow activities you can always take a short drive and find a snowy Rocky Mountain winter.
