  • Great House in Estes Park!

    "My husband and I and our family and some of his siblings had a great visit to Estes Park over the Labor Day weekend for a family reunion. Lori's house is beautiful! I recommend it! There were 10 of us (7 adults and 3 children age 10, 7 and 4). Plenty of room and beds! Grandkids said the house was "awesome"!"

  • A great weekend.

    "The cabin was very affordable and Very clean and we'll managed. It was very well stocked-had everything we needed. It was also the cleanest cabin I've ever rented. It did not have that musty damp cAbin feel. We were very pleased and look forward to rent this or another of Diana's properties again."

  • What a gem!

    "What a great way to spend a long deserved weekend! We had 4 adults, a 3 year old, and a 2 year old and our stay could not have been better! Every detail was thought out and every one of us was more than comfortable! Between the river mere steps outside the door, a connected spa (offering incredible massages!), and a beautiful and bustling town within walking distance, this trip was better than we could have imagined!"

  • We couldn't be more pleased w/ the process & stay!

    "What a marvelous home, away from home. We arrived to be greeted by 2 beautiful bull elk, which loved to pose for the cameras. We were celebrating a significant birthday for my wife, Gail, and had our son's family join us for several days of the week we stayed. We all loved it. The 13 and 11 year grandchildren had every entertainment they could want and mostly chose to be outdoors and fish in the Big Thompson. The 3 bedroom layout was perfect for everyone and the home was both beautiful and had all we needed for our comfort and pleasure. We could not recommend Alpine Haus more highly. It's 5 Star!"

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.
