Estes Park condo description

Labor Day Aug 29-Sep 3 (5 nights) still available! This condo features 3 bedrooms. The lower floor has two same sized bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom is set up with a king bed and the other has two twin beds. The twin beds can be joined to make a king bed if you desire. On the main level there is a very open floor plan perfect for groups from 2-8 people. There is one futon style sofa (makes out to a full bed) and a sectional in the living room. The living area opens up to a large balcony with a picnic table and a glider for outside dining and relaxing. You will not believe the incredible views from the balcony of Prospect Peak. There is a large dining table and there are two bar stools at the granite bar in the kitchen. The gourmet kitchen is a cook's dream. If you prefer not to eat out every meal, purchase groceries at the convenient Safeway in town and cook up a storm! There is a half bath on the main level as well. Upstairs is the master bedroom, a large loft style room w/ a private bathroom and walk in closet.

Guest Comments: 'Great place you all have up here. Beds were comfy and we enjoyed the conveniences of home up in the mountains. The moon/mountains last night behind the house were amazing! We'd love to come back again for sure!' Guest from Highlands Ranch, CO - 'Awesome Accommodations. So much to do and so little time. We will come back again and stay much longer. Enjoyed the cool weather and the convenience to the park.' Guests from Mandeville, LA and Colorado Springs, CO 'This place was perfect. Our stay in Estes Park was a lot of fun. Close to downtown and R.M.N.P. made out travels very easy. The recommendation of Dunraven was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay. The kids really enjoyed the Big Thompson being so close. Thanks for sharing your home with us.' Guests from Lee's Summit, MO

                          The VRBO Bear relaxing on the Big Thompson River 08/12/2008

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:

                          The incredible location of this townhouse will make you never want to leave Estes Park. Just steps from the Big Thompson River, it is a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature.

                          The kitchen was big enough for our large group to hang out, cook and eat together. The pictures do not do this home justice. There are many amenities that make this place feel like home. I could have hibernated all season in these comfortable beds!

                          The local YMCA and downtown Estes Park are about a 5 minute drive. There are hiking trails and beautiful scenery all around, including a great view of the gondolas.

                          If you are looking to have a place to relax and get away from it all; or a place to eat, shop and enjoy downtown Estes Park, this is the place for you!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Being originally from Nebraska, Lois and I always loved vacationing in Colorado. I worked in Estes Park one summer in high school and two in college. When we were looking for a place to get away from the hot, humid summers in Virginia, we naturally decided on Estes Park. The condo is a perfect way to have a worry free second home. Being close to everything: hiking, fishing, eating out, river walking. There is nothing like sitting on the deck gazing at the mountains or by the river to let the cares of the world wash away.

                          Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
                          Proximity to Denver Airport, Rocky Mountain National Park, the cool dryness of Estes Park and all of the wild animals and breathtaking views.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          The Big Thompson River runs next to the property and it is less than a mile to the center of downtown Estes Park.
