                      Rocky Mountain Views from this great Estes Park 2 bedroom Condo! 10/26/2010

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      The drive up to Estes Park is one of the best drives in Colorado…and this drive was no different. Walking up the steps to the condo, we could look over our shoulders and see the amazing mountain views and clear blue skies. The view from the deck is magnificent and a perfect place to spend the morning, drinking coffee! The 2 bedrooms were comfortable and were nicely decorated. The bathrooms were fully stocked with plenty of towels. Every amenity was covered, from matches to coffee to plenty of dishware. If I needed something, I could find it! There are menus and tourist recommendations so you can make a choice as to what you want to do. In case you want to check your email, the Wi-fi is really fast and works great! The condo is clean, quiet, comfortable and very accessible.

                      Making my way through town and up the road to the house, I knew that this condo was perfectly located. The historic Stanley Hotel is less than a 2-minute drive away. The condo is close to Safeway and the Estes Park visitor center. Rocky Mountain National Park is about a 5-minute drive to the entrance, where there are many hiking trails to choose from! The trail I hiked was only 20 minutes from the condo. Drink plenty of water, get rest and enjoy your time here. I will be back!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Jim and Jolene are retired from Corporate America. Jolene now works with nonprofits and is a life coach putting her years of business experience to work to assist helping others be at their best. Jim (originally from upstate New York) loves the Colorado sunshine and enjoys keeping up with the latest IT technology, working in the yard, and walking our two rat terriers.

                      Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
                      Jolene's dream was to have a vacation property in Estes Park. We live just a little over an hour from Estes, We love to hike, golf, bike, participate in the Estes Park festivities and relax on the deck taking in the beauty and nature that surrounds us. Jim's favorite vacation is near the beach so we do travel to Sanibel or Hilton Head once a year to satisfy his need for the hot weather and beach.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The views are magnificent. Easy access to hiking and climbing trails. We are far enough from downtown Estes area that you'll feel secluded but with an easy 1 mile walk you can be downtown to immerse yourself in the latest festivals, tours, events, golfing and enjoying the great outdoors. Since we recently purchased this property we have upgraded all of the kitchen appliances, purchased new beds and bedding, the carpet is less than one year old, the walls have fresh paint and we just replaced the window and window coverings in summer of 2010.
