About the owner: We live in Minnesota with our teenaged children and two big dogs. We love to kayak, hike, fish, cook as a family and just hang out. The ranch is our dream home for retirement and we are so happy to share it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park: Christopher used to live in Tahoe and loves mountain life. Heidi has traveled to Estes Park with a close friend over the years and fell in love with the area. We have looked at properties over the years and this summer we just fell in love with the ranch. We knew we found something very special.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: We can feel ourselves relax as we wind down the road to the ranch. We feel like we are in the middle of the Rocky Mountain National Forest yet we are 5 minutes from hiking or shopping with all of the local activities at our fingertips. We enjoy the rustic charm with modern amenities. It is the perfect setting for gatherings.
