Property description

Discover 'Rocky Mountain Tranquility' at our luxury retreat on the Big Thompson River, only a mile from Rocky Mountain National Park, in Estes Park, Colorado.  Perfect for your family vacation or a girlfriend getaway! Our home has central air conditioning - hard to find in Estes Park. You can fish right outside the back door, but this is not your father's fishing lodge... Our 1800 ft2 riverfront duplex-style condo (in Park River West) is modern and up-to-date. The home has a dramatic two-story layout with light-filled rooms and hardwood floors on the main level.

Because we, the owners, personally manage the rental of our home, you can expect to get rapid response, accurate answers to your questions, and a problem-free vacation. We live only one hour from Estes Park, and we keep a close eye on our vacation home.

Enjoy our open floor plan with master bedroom suite (king-sized bed) on the main level.  The fully-equipped kitchen is open to the great room and features granite countertops with a breakfast bar.  Our dining table seats six comfortably.  The sun-filled great room has comfortable furniture, a 48" flat-screen TV and DVD player, vaulted ceilings and a river rock gas fireplace.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms, a full bath, and a cozy loft.  One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, the other has two extra-long twins.  The loft has a sofa-bed and rocking recliner, another 42" flat-screen TV and DVD player, and a large table for games, puzzles, or laptop use (with wireless high-speed internet).

All three bedrooms have comfortable beds and black-out window coverings. 

Enjoy beautiful views from every room.  Central air conditioning and ceiling fans make hot summer days more comfortable.

Pine trees line the river outside our back door.  Deer and elk are frequent visitors.  The sunny deck is great for outdoor dining, watching wildlife, or just relaxing to the sounds of the river and the whispering pines.  Deck furniture and a gas grill are provided. Our neighborhood provides benches and picnic tables along the river for your use.  In addition, we have lightweight folding lawn chairs that you may take next to the river for a relaxing afternoon in the shade.

Choose a movie from our large collection of family-friendly DVDs and watch on one of our three flat-screen TVs.  Plug your ipod into the docking station (in great room) and listen to your music in one, some, or all of the rooms.  We also have plenty of books, puzzles, and board games for you to enjoy.  We provide four tennis racquets for your use at the high school courts.  For dining out and shopping, the charming village of Estes Park is only a mile away.

Your cell phone should work here, but we have a land-line just in case.  

Although Colorado usually gets lots of sunshine, we occasionally have spells of bad weather. After one rainy week in early June, we read this entry in our Guest Book: 'We are very sorry to take up three pages of your Guest Book, but we enjoyed your home so much that multiple family members felt the need to share their thoughts and thanks. Your home is absolutely beautiful. As you know, we could not have picked four days of worse weather. Your home saved our trip.'

Scrapbookers: Our home is perfect for your group's scrapbooking retreat. Refer to our website (www.RockyMountainTranquility.com) for details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are fifty-something empty-nesters who live about an hour from Estes Park. We have lived in Colorado since 1979. Both native New Yorkers, we met during our college years at SUNY Fredonia, but moved to Colorado a week after our wedding. Our two married children live in Denver and Peoria, IL.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
We love the charming little town of Estes Park, gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Our condo is in a quiet neighborhood, right on the Big Thompson River, with abundant wildlife and picturesque views. It offers easy access to town and to the national park.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It would be a shame to allow our Estes Park home to sit empty most of the year, so we love sharing our home with other people. You help us pay the bills and we provide a tranquil and spacious 'home away from home' for your vacation. We travel a lot ourselves, and wherever we go, we expect our accomodations to be clean, comfortable, and convenient. That is exactly what we strive to provide in our vacation home. We want you to have the most restful and relaxing vacation ever!
