Estes Park house description

Experience 'jaw dropping' snow capped Continental Divide views during your Rocky Mountain National Park vacation. Buffalo Ridge Lodge celebrates its 2.5 acres with 150 degrees of snow capped continental divide splendor from Twin Sisters and Longs Peak to Hallets, Flat Top and beyond. Along with the Continental Divide views, this beautiful mountain property boasts views in every direction including the Lumpy Ridge, Eagles Rock, and expansive wildflower meadows. Wrapped with views, evergreens, aspens, mountain flowers and bordered by a stream, you'll be enchanted by the 2 story mountain lodge itself. Your first words upon entering this exquisite executive home will be 'WOW' - because that's what Buffalo Ridge Lodge does - it simply wows everyone that steps inside its 6500 square feet. You'll be greeted by a 2 story log accented entry, hardwood floors, and a formal mountain lodge dining room. You'll discover the open flow leads you into the spacious lodge great room with its designer furniture, a wood burning moss rock fireplace, original buffalo and Native American art, and views, views, views. The gourmet kitchen and butler's pantry is truly every cooks dream with stainless steel Viking appliances, acres of granite and travertine, a corner fireplace, and lots of room for everyone to enjoy meal prep. Buffalo Ridge Lodge boasts 3 unbelievable master suites, all with incredible Divide views and their own moss rock fireplace. The 2 upper level master suites boast cathedral tongue and groove ceilings, huge windows, giant master baths with jetted tubs, tiled showers, separate toilet rooms, and spacious walk in closets. The Lumpy Ridge Suite master walk-in also serves as a nursery-close enough to Mom and Dad yet offering a separate sleeping area for baby. The best views in the entire Estes valley await your stay in the Divide master suite. There is nothing quite like opening your eyes to seventeen mountain peaks and aspen branches beckoning you to coffee on the log balcony. Each master has its own outdoor sitting area to enjoy this mountain sanctuary. The second level of the home also includes an old west sitting area with cathedral ceiling and library with hair on hide furniture, gorgeous mountain views, an office, and a huge covered upper deck with log glider overlooking the front meadow and the ponderosa covered hillside. This is a great area to enjoy an evening glass of wine and watch for deer and elk as they forage along the stream. If one level living is important for you, Buffalo Ridge offers the pine cone master on the main level with it's own master bath. All three masters exist in their own private wing and include king size beds, down blankets and pillows, high thread count linens, and luxurious bath towels. You'll love Buffalo Ridge Lodge inside and out. This lovely mountain home offers loads of unbelievable serenity, along with its outside water feature, log balconies, and stupendous views. Buffalo Ridge Lodge truly has it all!
