'It's not just a transaction...for us it's our passion!'
AspenHaus Lodge is perfectly situated overlooking the Big Thompson River, with snow-cap views of the continental divide while backing up to Giant Track Mountain for the ultimate in end-of-road privacy. From our home it is just a short walk into the Rocky Mountain National Park, 1/2 mile to the YMCA of the Rockies, 2 miles to the Beaver Meadows entrance of RMNP and 3.5 miles to the town center of Estes Park. Or simply leave your car at our home and take the FREE Estes Park Summer shuttle from a stop located within 1/4 mile of AspenHaus Lodge!!
The main level great room has a spectacular floor-to-30 ft. ceiling river rock gas fireplace which is flanked by a surround sound audio visual system (with 2 flat screens); simply the ideal family gathering place with its adjoining fully equipped kitchen and dining room area.
From the great room you can step out to the fantastic wrap-around deck to enjoy excellent mountain views along with the sights and sounds of the Big Thompson River... or take it all in from the 6-person hot tub or while cooking dinner on the Weber gas grill!
The cozy master bedroom has a double-sided gas fireplace shared with a jetted tub en suite. Open the deck doors and let the sounds of the Big Thompson lull you to sleep or step out to take in the perfectly clear Colorado sky where you might want to reach out to grab a star!
The second level of AspenHaus has two bedrooms (a king-sized bed in each), 2 private bathrooms and an amazing open loft area with picture windows framing the river, pine forest and snow-cap views. No artwork needed on these walls!
A second family room is located in the lower level where you can walk-out to meet wild turkeys and spot other wild life coming up the driveway! The bunk room with a full bath is also located on this level.
A one car attached garage space (with a spare refrigerator) comes with this rental. We also have a main floor laundry room.
As our guest you will enjoy access to shared common fishing, picnic and playground areas along the Big Thompson river.
From the doorsteps of AspenHaus enjoy a short woodsy walk along the Big Thompson River and emerge to expansive views of Moraine Park. Visit the museum, catch the shuttle to other RMNP destinations or continue your hike on to Cub Lake where you will have extraordinary opportunities to view herds of elk along the way.
Need we go on... our family thinks that AspenHaus Lodge is perfect in every way... not just another vacation rental but our perfect mountain home!

About the owner: We are diehard fans of the St. Louis Cardinals & Blues, Buffalo Bills & Sabres, world cup soccer, Pittsburgh Penguins (some of us!), VT Hokies and the Rocky Mountains!
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park: We have spent many of our summer vacations visiting national parks and the RMNP is our hands-down favorite! After 2 years of searching for a home in Estes Park we knew that this was the perfect one for us!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Location, location, location...walk directly into the RMNP or access the shuttle bus by foot to avoid traffic and delays! We have views of both the Big Thompson River AND the Continenal Divide...to have one is special to have both is extra special and rare!
