Estes Park house description

Welcome to our retreat ...'on top of the Rockies'
Drive to the end of our road and up to the 1.6 acres of private splendor.
As you walk in, be greeted by the huge view of the mass of Longs Peak and surrounding peaks that are the landmarks of our valley.
This warm, inviting family home has room for 10-12 in 4 bedrooms, 2 ensuite queens, 2 huge upper bedrooms sharing a bath, 2 living rooms, a perfect open kitchen dining 'together' area, and a convenient main level powder room.
Outside hang out on the large decks, patio area or walk up onto our private peak for even more views.
In the evenings take time to be awed by starry displays unmarred by light pollution.
The only through traffic to experience may be Elk, Deer, Bobcat, or maybe even a curious Bear.
Ride, hike, jeep right out of the property onto what may well be the most spectacular portions of Roosevelt National Forest.
Day trips to the Rocky Mountain National Park will not be easily forgotten, nor will the huge amount of fun to had in Estes and the surrounding area....but you already know that if you are planning a vacation here.
We, the owners, manage and operate the property and only this property which we built and raised our family in.
The perfect family reunion, vacation or destination for a few small families. Kids will discover the lost art of 'Outside'

We take great care of our special place and it's guests.
Expect to be planning repeat visits!!! Welcome!
