  • Great View and Wonderful House!!

    "Rented the house for three nights and was very impressed. Has great views of the Mary's Lake area. House was very clean and had all the amenities that you could ask for. Kitchen had everything you would need if you decided to stay in and cook. Master bedroom and bath on the first floor and the other two bedrooms downstairs both with own bath. Nice family room on main floor with wonderful views and the family room downstairs was quite big and comfy. The only downside was the beds are on the hard side but that would be my only negative about this place. Wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed grilling out on the deck. I would defiantly stay here again."

  • Labor Day in Estes

    "If you are planning to stay in Estes Park, especially during a holiday weekend, this the place to stay. So close to town, it's an easy walk to the center. We were able to join in the fray of the holiday without having to move the car. Easy access without having to go through town to the RMNP. The rooms of this condo are very generous and although we stayed only two nights, you could easily spend a week here without the walls closing in on you. Two comfortable beds, good sized baths, everything in good working order. Would definitely stay here again."

    "We loved staying at Water Dance for our family vacation! The location was very convenient to the town and Rocky Mointain National Park. We walked to town at least once every day, and went into the park numerous times. Sitting by the river was very relaxing. We also enjoyed the eating area outdoors. The hot tub was wonderful, and an added plus to this home! The home was very well stocked with everything you need to be able to cook and eat all of your meals there. They had plenty of towels, including beach towels for the hot tub. We really enjoyed the time there with our family, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again."

  • charming, clean, and up to date

    "We stayed four nights, and felt "at home" right away. The property is very well cared for, and the rules (no pets, take off your shoes at the door) mean that the place is also very clean. If you're particular about where you stay, you'll love 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.
