Estes Park house description

Alpentraum, (Mountain Dream) was built in 1927 and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and is a rare example of 'Old Estes Architecture'. Enjoy the mountain views and wildlife from the sunroom, dining room and kitchen, family room and deck. There is a screen porch game room that overlooks the Big Thompson River. The master bedroom has a king bed and is on the main floor, with a full bath. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms. there is a bedroom with 2 twin beds, a bedroom with a queen bed, and a bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds. A 3/4 bath services the upstairs. Under the main floor, there is a separate 'maid's quarters', with a bunk bed and a 3/4 bath. This 'apartment' is the teenagers favorite. The house overlooks the Big Thompson River, and, various game trails cross the property. Please be aware that there are bears, elk, mountain lions, deer, bobcats, coyotes and other critters that live on the mountain.

We have a gourmet kitchen with stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. The kitchen was updated with new appliances (except the stove/oven) and new cooking pots, pans, utensils, dishes, flatware, stemware, etc. in 2013.
