Estes Park house description


No Flood Damage.
We are very thankful and blessed that our home was not damaged by the flood.

Our recently remodeled awesome river retreat home, 'Dancing Bears', is located on 300 feet of beautiful Big Thompson River frontage with views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the mountains. There is Rocky Mountain National Park land located across the river from our home. Estes Park is a little 'slice of heaven' and we are creating a comfortable, warm home to enjoy with your family and friends.

The home is laid out so that there is nice separation when
desired - 3 bedrooms and on one side of the family area and 2 bedrooms on the other side by the family area. There are 4 bathrooms.

The great room has large windows to the west with views of the mountains and large windows overlooking the Big Thompson River. A large rock fireplace. two sofas, a rocking chair, a big screen TV, DVD and stereo furnish the living room area of the great room. Play air hockey, pool or ping pong while watching the river from the great room. One of the sofas is a queen sleeper.

The dining room table is in the dining area of the great room and expands to accommodate 14 people and overlooks the Big Thompson River. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and opens into the great room and dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for your culinary delights. There is a small powder room with a shower by the great room, dining area and kitchen.

The deck has new patio furniture for taking in
the beautiful Rocky Mountain sky, mountains and surroundings while listening and watching the river. There is a large grill for cooking your fresh caught trout. Enjoy the stars and the river as you relax in the hot tub after a day of hiking or snowshoeing.

The family area has a 40 inch TV, DVD, game system and a log twin sofa with a twin trundle.

The master bedroom, 'Bears', has windows overlooking the river, a door that opens onto the river front deck and a rock fireplace. There is a King Log bed and a TV for Mama and Papa Bear :). 'Bears' has an ensuite bathroom with a steam shower so Mama and Papa can have a very relaxing steam after a long hike.

Bedroom two, 'Trees' room has windows overlooking the river and has a King Log Bed.

There is a bathroom across the hall from 'Trees' and it has a bath tub with shower.

Bedroom three, 'Moose' is a second Master Suite and has a sliding glass door to a private balcony overlooking the river. 'Moose' has a king log bed, TV and an ensuite small bathroom with a shower shared with the 'American Flag' bedroom.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I consider myself to be very blessed and fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy our freedoms. I am a lucky mom to a wonderful teenage son. I find the world and people fascinating and relish the time I can spend traveling and exploring.. I love to travel, experience the world and spend time outdoors.

                  Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
                  I worked at the YMCA of the Rockies one summer while in college and I almost stayed rather than going back to college. I think Rocky Mountain National Park has some of the best hiking in the world. I love being by the water and soaking up the outdoors while listening to the soothing sounds of the river and taking in the spectacular rocky mountains. The energy around our home and along the river is awesome and being so close to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park is wonderful.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  August Sale! All remaining nights on sale for $295/night plus departure/cleaning fee and tax! We are 1.5 miles to Rocky Mountain National Park and less than that to a grocery store and shopping. Relax by the river while reading a good book and being mesmerized by the spectacular beauty of the mountains and the sounds of the river. Sit on the river patio while fishing to your heart's content. Soak in the hot tub after hiking or snowshoeing while watching and listening to the river. Enjoy a soothing, peaceful steam shower anytime you desire. Relax with your morning cup of coffee on the patio taking in all the beauty. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as the sun sets behind the mountains while cooking those fresh caught fish on the grill.
