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 :).

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:
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.
