Situated on 1 acre facing the magnificent Longs Peak and the dominating peaks of the Mummy Range, our home will embrace you with space without losing the cozy feeling of a mountain retreat. There are three focal areas for you to spend your time depending on your mood. The main floor consists of a vaulted ceiling pine-paneled moss rock fireplace family room with skylights (one that opens for fresh air) that accommodates a lazy evening or cool day daydreaming about what the rest of the world is doing. Three bedrooms flank this room: the fishing bedroom, the cottage bedroom and the blue bedroom with the upstairs bathroom with an old-fashioned claw foot bathtub for soaking aching hiking muscles. Climbing four stairs brings you into the large great room consisting of a dining room, small bay window table for games and quick snacks, tv and sitting area. Continuing through the sliding glass door puts you on the front deck that provides plenty of sun and views of the magnificent Rockies (one of the best views of Longs Peak), wild life and fresh pine air. Going down the stairs will bring you to the open walk-out basement that consists of a sitting area, a king-sized bed, a double bed, laundry room and bathroom with a shower. All of this provides enough space for everyone to either be together or to do your own thing.

About the owner: This property has been in our family for over 55 years. It has been an on-going labor of love to remodel and expand to meet our family’s needs. We love to come and just ‘veg’, forgetting about phones and the outside world for a time to recharge our batteries. With the downtown for shopping excursions and the park so close for hiking, we never lack for things to do when we are in the mood. I, for one, love to sit by the fire in the evening and enjoy the quiet sounds of the wind blowing through the pines.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park: Estes Park has been a relaxing getaway spot for over 130 years because it is the closest access to the Rockies from Denver without having to travel freeways and fighting traffic. It has been great for our family because of it's locale and convenience and providing a place for us to enjoy the mountains and the fresh pine air.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our location is between downtown Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park which makes it convenient to either enjoy shopping or hiking. We are remote enough from downtown that you still can feel secluded from all of the other visitors to Estes.
