  • Downright Perfect.

    "My wife and I, who have explored nearly every nook and cranny of Colorado, decided to do a last minute getaway and relax up in the mountains before the holiday rush. Could not have asked for a better location that is easily accessible from Denver; that is secluded and quiet; that provides intimate interaction with nature; feels like a clean, comfortable and cozy relative's vacation home (as someone else noted in their review); and has what you need for pretty much doing nothing or serving as a launching pad for mountain exploration and adventure in Roosevelt National Forest or Rocky Mountain National Park. The chalet is as advertised and the reviews are accurate, with 5 stars deserved. There are hikes close by; it is close enough but far enough from civilization in Estes Park; and there is excellent nature watching. Was a little chilly for us for hiking, especially since we did not pack the right equipment, but we set our goals on relaxing and certainly achieved them. The hot tub was great. A couple deer pleasantly surprised us just as we got out. Lots of birds and more deer, including a pretty big buck with a nice rack. Debi told us there was a bobcat hanging around the day before we came, so you know you are in a good spot for nature. Saw some big horn sheep down in Estes on 34 / Wonderview / Fall River Road and had a nice brunch at Claire's in town. Bring some food, wine and bathing suits and you are set for a nice, relaxing and/or romantic getaway and do not even need to leave the property. Thanks for letting us use your place! A return trip will more than likely happen."

    "We loved our week here. Enjoyed the beauty and sound of the river right by the cabin. All the furnishings were nice and comfortable. Away from town yet close! Lovely in every way!"

  • Northridge Nest was just right for our family reunion in Estes Park this October!

    "For our first VRBO rental we were so pleased with the Nest in Estes Park, Colorado. We had families from the East coast and the Northwest descend upon Colorado for a five day reunion in the town where many of us had spent happy years growing up. It was dark when we arrived and we had to warm the house up. Once we got all the thermostats working it was fairly cozy. We would suggest keeping an eye on the temperature during your stay so you stay warm. We were able to access the key and suggest returning it in to the holder in case you forget to take keys with you when you venture out to the park. We forgot and it saved us a couple of times! We had four family units and each group had just the perfect place to stay in the house. Our teen girls loved their aero beds, with extra blankets, in the garage where they had their own space and a heating unit that kept them comfortable. The rest of us spread out in the house. We fixed our own food during our stay and had a bit of a problem with a burner on the stove not working. We made do and enjoyed the counter space and table near the kitchen where we spent a good share of our time. The kitchen was fairly well stocked and had plently of pots & pans and casserole dishes to use. The refrigerator even had some items we purchased and wouldn't have if we had known. The fireplace was nice and we purchased wood and fire logs to use in it a number of evenings during our stay. The big screen TV was nice to view from the kitchen as well as the living room. The décor is very nice with birds and trees and nature tying the Nest theme together. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms seemed adequate. There was plenty of bedding and towels for everyone to use. A special treat was the elk herd that bedded down around the north side of the house each day. The bull was beautiful with his rack of antlers and there was even a little calf. The views were nice and one morning we took a walk around the neighborhood, a neighbor stopped by to say hi and asked where we lived. He said the owners were real nice folks. We will certainly consider staying in the Northridge Nest for future trips to Estes Park. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

  • Nice Stay

    "My family of 6 enjoyed staying at this lovely home in Estes Park. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The fire pit was great. Enjoyed sitting out by it at night, making s'mores and listening to the coyotes howl and the elk bugle. Had some late night visits from the bugling elk. Wonderful experience and will look forward to visiting again."

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.
