  • Masterpiece of Heaven

    "Our family came here to spend the New year in Estes Park. The house was spectacular! The view from the deck is out of this world. we saw Deer and elk every day. The inside of the house is very cozy and clean. There is a great game room for the kids and adults. this home sits on a beautiful piece of property. The outdoor hot tub was very relaxing and it even snowed while we were in it(that was a bonus). every bedroom was done in good taste. The reservation staff was friendly and made out choice an easy one. they recommended this home and it was worth it!! We will be back and will recommend it to all of our friends. Thanks for having this little piece of heaven in Estes Park."

  • Quiet and peaceful

    "What a great place to have a honeymoon! We were there about 15 minutes when we saw two elk walk thru the back yard. The next day we were greeted by a black bear and the rest of the week is was not uncommon to have deer in the yard! With no cable TV it gave us time to put the real world behind us. We highly recommend anyone to stay here. There are no pictures of the bathroom and there should be, it was very nice as was the rest of the house. We hope to stay here again."

  • Perfect Family Cabin with Unbelievable Views

    "The pictures don't do this place justice. It was a perfect getaway. The house is super clean and well taken care of. It sits in a great location so you have easy access to town and short day trips but the privacy of being away. There was plenty of space for our family to hang out and be together and private enough to escape from each other if needed!! It was just perfect to relax and enjoy a perfect view from every window in the house. Our family would return again in a heart beat!"

  • Absolutely the best!

    "Our stay here was absolutely amazing! Linda and Bob were the kindest and most welcoming people we have met. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect! The house is beautiful! There was plenty of room for everyone and the house had everything we needed to entertain our friends. We will be back there every year from now on for our annual get together with our friends. We absolutely loved this place."

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.
