Estes Park house description

Please call owner directly at 757-879-5439 to book a reservation. Do not rely on email alone. If you want an extraordinary mountain home in Estes Park that is perfect for families and has tons of room (not to mention absolutely stunning views)... look no further. We are now booking for summer 2015. There are still a fall dates open so inquire now!

OVERALL HOME: With over 6600sqft in living space, this log style two story home is one of the largest and nicest rental homes in all of Colorado. It is situated on over one acre natural lot with trees, rock outcroppings, and abundant wildlife. It is on a paved street and has a large paved circular driveway. Including the master suite, it features 8 bedrooms, 4 baths, 3 living/sitting areas, 2 fireplaces, a game room, over 2400 sqft in decks, and yes… even a one-of-a-kind indoor basketball court!!!

THE VIEWS: The house is situated right at the base of the continental divide and is surrounded by panoramic views of Twin Sister's (13,000'+), Long's Peak (14'000'+), and the continental divide itself. Most of the view is of Rocky Mountain National Park peaks.

THE BEDDING SET-UP: Yes... eight bedrooms! Enough for everyone to have their own. And they are all very nice size...all larger than the average bedroom and all with larger than average closets. The bedrooms feature the following bedding set-ups all with themed décor that match native animals in the park including master(king), elk(king), bear(king), bear cub(2 twins), mountain lion(queen), trout(2 twins), and moose(queen).

THE MAIN LIVING AREA: The huge professional kitchen features granite counters, maple wood cabinets, double oven, professional series separate refrigerator and freezer, desk area with wirless internet, and a unique outdoor kitchen (10’ by 10’ upper deck with built-in 8ft stainless steel grill – just outside the main kitchen through glass French doors). The main living room features lots of open space with comfortable furniture, a billiards area, a nostalgic winter sports décor, and a large screen TV/fireplace/200+ DVD library all built into a dramatic slate wall.

SPECIAL FEATURES: The over 2400 sqft+ in decks (three upper and two lower connected with a wood bridge) feature an outdoor ping pong table, a large hot tub, wood/log furniture including gliders and swings, and 2 picnic tables. Also outside is a very nice horseshoe court, and a 1800's rustic trail wagon. Other features include a 2.5 story atrium with bear water fountain, a 2nd living room with fireplace, up to 4 bathrooms, and a two car garage.

INCREDIBLE MASTER SUITE: 1000sqft master suite is It features the master bedroom (with king bed, built in TV, desk, sitting area, and 2.5 story ceiling), a deluxe wet bar (with granite counter, double sink, small fridge, and maple cabinets), an amazing master bathroom (with huge garden tub and large extended tiled area with 4 shower heads), and a private deck (with log swing).

THE WILDLIFE: And despite the excellent all around qualities of the home, the best feature may just be the wildlife. Sited on the property have been coyotes, foxes, marmots, ground squirrels, black bears, and literally hundreds of birds and mule deer. And of course too numerous to mention... the herds of elk. As a matter of fact, over 50 elk were counted on the property at one time (actually multiple times!).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a family of 5 and we love to be active and surrounded by nature. Wether it be the mountains, ocean or the desert, we enjoy visiting new places and meeting new people.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
We visited Estes Park in 2011 and decided we eventually wanted to live here. An opportunity arose for us to purchase a home. We decided we had to have a piece of paradise for ourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Simply one of the best locations in one of the most beautiful mountain towns in the country, The home is located between the downtown of Estes Park and the main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The setting is natural and park-like itself with abundant wildlife passing through year round. Even with limitless outdoor activities in the area, there are also extensive activities in the house including: ping-pong, billiards, and over 2000 sqft in decks with views that are just plain stunning!
