                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We own a few small, family oriented, businesses. We enjoy getting to the mountains to soak up the beautiful scenery, wildlife and the fresh mountain air.

                  Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
                  We stayed at this property back in 2011 during our daughter's spring break. We fell in love with its amenities, location and surrounding area. Once we made the decision to buy this, we wanted to share our little part of Estes Park with all those who wanted to experience the beauty of the area themselves.
