Estes Park house description

The CASA RIO VISTA is a beautifully appointed and decorated 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home is located right on the Big Thompson River in a quiet private, gated community, Blue Spruce Village. The Big Thompson runs just a few feet away from the back deck. Enjoy your morning coffee or happy hour drinks listening to the rushing river from your wrap around, spacious deck. Open the windows and hear the river all day and night! The river is stocked with trout by the Blue Spruce HOA.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, a bay window overlooking the river and a recently renovated bath. The second master has its own bath and a queen size bed. The third bedroom (a new addition to the home)can be a children's retreat....a built in bunk bed...queen on bottom and XL twin on top. This bedroom also has its own bath. Bedrooms are all upstairs. The downstair leather sofa opens to a queen size bed.

This home has it all. The kitchen is fully equipped with top quality dishware, cookware and utensils. Outside you'll find a Weber gas grill. The living area has a TV/DVR/stereo, DVD library and games. Our home also has WIFI internet access.

Blue Spruce Village is approximately 5 minutes outside Estes Park and two miles from the entrance to the spectular Rocky Mountain National Park. Only one quarter mile from the original entrance to the park, you can walk to a park trail that leads to beautiful Moraine Park. You won't be disappointed!

Here are former guest comments:
'We had such a wonderful time here at Casa Rio Vista! Thanks for such a beautifully decorated and comfortable place for us to spend our vacation. Our kids were calling it 'home' after our first night.' G.S., McKinney Texas

'Most of all, your beautiful home made our 15 hour drive so worth it. We definately plan on coming again and recommending your home for a guaranteed pleasurable stay.' D. G., Ft Worth, Texas

'Thank you for such lovely accommodations. Our windows and doors were always open to hear the rushing waters.' J.W., Omaha Neb.

'What a magical retreat you have here! We still can't get over the fact that just outside the back door is such a wild, beautiful piece of nature in the river. We have spent countless hours sitting on the porch gazing at it, listening to it from our bedrooms and fishing in it (Chloe caught a trout!). It's an amazement we can't get over.' T.S., Austin, Texas

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About: We purchased this home after visiting Blue Spruce Village for 8 years. We just love having our coffee in the cool crisp mornings while watching the kids feed the fish and chipmunks that visit the area. In July 2013 we purchased another BSV home unit #2 'Pinehenge' just a few doors down. Take a look VRBO #484296.

          Why Estes Park:
          We really strive to have all the comforts of home. We supply coffee, laundry soap, dish soap and many general essentials for cooking. Have your ever been on vacation cooking a meal that needs only 2-3 Tbs of Olive Oil? You just can't believe you have to buy a $8-10 bottle at the local grocery store for a messily 2 Tbs? ... Well we have you covered!
