  • A great place

    "Our family loved the home and the location. We enjoyed the views and the close proximity to all amenities. It was obvious that this home is well cared for and the owner was great to work with. We will be going back."

  • We could not have asked for a better place!

    "This was the perfect place to stay in Estes Park, CO! It was super clean, quaint, close enough to walk to town, and Carolyn and Terry were so helpful and accommodating! It is a great place to see wildlife, have a fire, grill outside, and making memories with your family all while taking in the beautiful Rocky Mountains!"

  • Whispering Pines for Thanksgiving

    "My family of five stayed at Whispering Pines for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We arrived on Tuesday and stayed until Sunday. Sue was wonderful about providing information about Thanksgiving meals and events in Estes Park. The details provided about the cabin were extremely helpful. We ended up preparing our own Thanksgiving Meal at the cabin. The setting is very relaxing and we were able to reconnect as a family but still able to enjoy our own space. The kids enjoyed climbing the rocks behind the cabin. We enjoyed the Glow Parade in Estes the Friday after Thanksgiving and took some family pictures in the park. Great getaway and we hope to come back again soon."

  • Great Heat Escape 2014

    "My family and I escaped the Houston heat for July 2014 and stayed at 130 Alpine Dr. After researching several properties in Estes Park, I decided on this one and it did not disappoint. Everything met and in most cases exceeded my expectations. We had plenty of space and the ammenities were fantastic. The views cannot be beat! It truly is a short drive into town but you are far enough away to really enjoy nature."

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.
