  • Colorado relaxation trip!

    "Stayed at this Estes Park property for a week in July with two "20+ somethings" for our summer vacation - a pilgrimage we take annually, renting a cabin in various areas of the state. The property is exactly as described in the owner's listing and was the nicest we've stayed in while in Colorado. The in house theatre room was a wonderful addition for the 20+ adults in the evenings with available movies and satellite TV. The cabin is cleverly decorated and has numerous features to make you feel like your at home. The only drawback we experienced was a lack of internet access for me to check-in at work and the college student to do his homework for his online class. We resolved this by visiting Estes Park wifi spots; however, the limited bandwidth provided in most public locations was slow. The fastest public wifi we located was at the library. Cell phone service at the cabin was good at all times (AT&T); however, wifi on their LTE network was much slower than we're used to. While the concept of "unplugging" always sounds good, it's not realistic for many of us even when on vacation. The 23 yoa and 26 yoa have announced that future vacation locations will need confirmed wifi."

    "Our stay in this home was very nice and comfortable. The home is very modern and spacious. The house has a medieval look and feel to it that makes it very memorable and cool. The scenery is breath taking and memorable because of all the wildlife in the area. Mule Deer, elks, foxes and rabbits are abundant in the area and will come right near the base of the house. The only comments that I will make are the following. The Estes Park area is not really meant for winter staying. The Rocky Mountains national Park is open but unless your wanting to hike, you are at min 3-4 hours away from ski resorts and snowmobiles. Also if you come to this resort area, make sure you get a car that has proper snow tires and all wheel drive. The roads in the area become very slick and the homes are located on steep hills. There were times we could not get up the hills because of the ice on the roads and driveways. The town below is small and nice, but there isn't much to do. You can do the shining hotel tour and a sleigh ride, but that's about it. Also for some strange reason, we could not take showers at the same time. If water was being used anywhere else in the house, the water pressure in the upstairs bathroom shower dropped to a trickle. So it took some juggling in schedules to make sure you had full pressure. The water was always hot, just low pressure if other people were showering. Also be aware that being in the mountains, you will be subjected to major wind gusts that can reach 80 mph. The gusts pummeled the house and area and shook the house. But the house held up beautifully. Overall, I would recommend the house for spring and summer staying. There is no AC for the summer, but the area should be cool enough for staying. Also the Estes Area opens up more in the Summer than the winter. The owner is very responsive to any needs or issues. We had some issues with the driveway and he responded immediately. I would recommend this house to people wanting to stay in the Estes Park Area."

  • Post Xmas vacation

    "Our family loved staying at Murray's Hangar! The space was very accomodating to 5 adults. The kitchen is a dream - well stocked and beautiful. Although the location does not seem ideal, the view from the back porches is really beautiful. We did not go to the lake, but it's nice that it's so close by. The heated floors in the bathroom and kitchen are truly wonderful. My tips for the owners would be to put a very long runner rug by the front door to accomodate many wet and snowy boots in the winter. A bigger rug by the back doors would be wise as well. We hated to make a mess. Also, as described by previous reviews, the garage is uber small. We did fit a Subaru and Jeep, but had to back out the Jeep before our family could get in. Not a big deal. The close access to Rocky Mountain National Park was such a bonus. We snowshoed on some great trails. We rented some of the snowshoes from a company 2 minutes from the condo for only $5/day. My biggest beef that required only a 4 star rating was the piling on of a cleaning fee, liability insurance fee AND the requirement of a credit card for additional liability. Really? I was very uncomfortable sending a scan with my credit card info with a signature. That has never been a requirement in previous VRBOs that I've booked. Overall though, we had a very nice experience!"

  • Wonderful Vacation!

    "Our family decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Colorado to have a snowy Christmas vacation. Within hours of leaving my contact information, owner Wendall called and quickly provided all the information that we needed. Our family of 5 found the house to be perfect for us, and very comfortable, with everything we needed. We were traveling from Florida, and Wendell had left sleds out, available for the kids to use, which they loved. The weather turned out to be REALLY cold, but we stayed warm and cozy - Wendall called to check on us and make sure that heat/pipes were all surviving the cold snap. The living room with its large windows was the perfect place to sit and watch the snow fall with a cup of tea. We loved the entire vacation - RMNP sledding, Estes Park lights, the elk and other wildlife. My kids would love to make this an annual trip!"

Estes Park Travel Tips

At the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in Colorado thanks to stunning mountain vistas and a charming downtown. Situated 7,522 feet above sea level, the entire area is home to breathtaking views, incredible natural scenery and plenty of skiing and hiking adventures to be had. The town itself has the feel of a quaint mountain village yet allows for a range of phenomenal cuisine and culture in the middle of an outdoorsman's paradise. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a memorable family vacation or just isolation from the fast pace of the city for a few days, Estes Park is the perfect destination.

Estes Park Attractions

Known by many as the gate to Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is a veritable treasure trove of activities based around its immense natural beauty. Featuring guided tours, world class camping, great hiking and an absolutely endless supply of beautiful backdrops for family photographs, Estes Park is perfect for those who appreciate the great outdoors. The four trailheads accessible from the town offer fantastic access to the local hiking trails and phenomenal ski slopes, as well.

Within Rocky Mountain National Park alone there are over 100 separate peaks that rise above the height of 11,000 feet. As a result, Estes Park has become a prime destination for climbers and backpackers from across the globe. Strap into a harness, don't forget the crampons and scale some incredible rock faces or, if you're looking for a slightly more tame experience, take some of the winding backpacking trails to the top of these beautiful peaks. Since many of these peaks run directly along the continental divide, climbers can take in the unforgettable sight of watching snow begin its long journey either east to the Atlantic or west to the Pacific.

Estes Park Things to Do

If you're visiting Estes Park in either the spring, summer or autumn, then you'll want to take part in the fantastic trail running scene. While the city does offer a variety of trails that cater to all skill levels, some of the most beautiful scenery is found on two of the more challenging routes, Black Lake Trail and Lumpy Ridge Loop. While the former is an intermediate, 9.6-mile trail, Lumpy Ridge Loop runs for over 10 miles and features a nearly 3-mile change in elevation from start to finish. Black Lake Trail is recommended for those desiring water-centric viewpoints, as it passes by two lakes and a series of waterfalls. Lumpy Ridge, considering its changes in elevation, caters more to those looking to view the world from above as they pass through mountainous ridges and rugged terrain.

Of course, some people will prefer to experience the beauty of Estes Park from the valley below. Since its official sanctioning by the United States government nearly a century ago, Rocky Mountain National Park has served as a habitat to both domesticated and wild horses. A variety of options are available through the park for horseback riders of all levels, including day trips and backcountry horse camping sponsored by the National Parks Office. Those who would prefer to be a bit more independent can set off alone and will find over 260 miles of beautiful wilderness trails for their enjoyment. Both Thunder Lake Trail and Finch Lakes Trail are popular among vacationers and locals. These trails are accessible from the Wild Basin Trailhead, which is easily found from multiple park entrances.
