Property description

This charmer was built in 1923 and sits quietly on a hillside tucked back from traffic overlooking downtown Estes Park. It has stunning views of the mountains from the deck, living room and kitchen. There are 2 bedrooms that will comfortably sleep 4-6, but will accommodate up to 8. The kitchen and deck are brand new, but the original hardwood floors add to the warmth and charm. The large stone fireplace warms up in winter, the fresh breezes from the mountains come through in summer. Relax and read on the couch or the new deck or watch a movie on the flat screen TV with DVD player. Enjoy the wildlife that wander through the property. The house is 2 blocks and a 5 minute walk down the hill to the middle of downtown Estes. It is a short drive to the entrance of Rocky Mountain National park.

Car: Recommended

Estes Park is a sleepy little town in the winter, but late spring, summer and fall is Colorado at its best. The sun, the mountains and the lakes are just beautiful. Hiking and biking through the Rocky Mountain National Park is unforgettable. Driving Trail Ridge Road during the summer is a great experience (it is closed during the winter). Fishing on the Big Thompson River is nearby. Downtown Estes Park is loaded with quaint shops, great restaurants, horseback riding, and fun things for the kids to do.

Other Activities: hiking, shopping


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I grew up in Colorado. We love the mountains and really enjoy going to Estes Park. We purchased this house to let others enjoy the area as well. We love that the house works for families and couples as well as crafting groups.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
Guests have come back year after year for a relaxing family vacation in a house that is very close to town, but uniquely private.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is one of the original downtown cabins, lovingly remodeled and used as a summer family vacation, a scrapbook retreat or a weekend getaway in the winter. Come see for yourself.
