  • Beautiful cabin

    "This cabin in the mountains is only 10-15 min from Estes Park. It is very quiet and peaceful and yet has Satellite TV and Wi-Fi. The outdoor deck lets you relax and view the scenery."

  • NICE QUIET AND BEAUTIFUL SETTINGS

    "Our stay in this home was very nice and comfortable. The home is very modern and spacious. The house has a medieval look and feel to it that makes it very memorable and cool. The scenery is breath taking and memorable because of all the wildlife in the area. Mule Deer, elks, foxes and rabbits are abundant in the area and will come right near the base of the house. The only comments that I will make are the following. The Estes Park area is not really meant for winter staying. The Rocky Mountains national Park is open but unless your wanting to hike, you are at min 3-4 hours away from ski resorts and snowmobiles. Also if you come to this resort area, make sure you get a car that has proper snow tires and all wheel drive. The roads in the area become very slick and the homes are located on steep hills. There were times we could not get up the hills because of the ice on the roads and driveways. The town below is small and nice, but there isn't much to do. You can do the shining hotel tour and a sleigh ride, but that's about it. Also for some strange reason, we could not take showers at the same time. If water was being used anywhere else in the house, the water pressure in the upstairs bathroom shower dropped to a trickle. So it took some juggling in schedules to make sure you had full pressure. The water was always hot, just low pressure if other people were showering. Also be aware that being in the mountains, you will be subjected to major wind gusts that can reach 80 mph. The gusts pummeled the house and area and shook the house. But the house held up beautifully. Overall, I would recommend the house for spring and summer staying. There is no AC for the summer, but the area should be cool enough for staying. Also the Estes Area opens up more in the Summer than the winter. The owner is very responsive to any needs or issues. We had some issues with the driveway and he responded immediately. I would recommend this house to people wanting to stay in the Estes Park Area."

  • The best...

    "Our family of 17, ranging in age from 2-75, thoroughly enjoyed our week at Rock Mountain Overlook. The house is not only beautiful but very specious...served our family well. We particularly enjoyed the awesome view from both inside the house as well as from the large deck and patio area. The location is perfect for easy access to town and the lake by either walking or biking, as some our family did. Our little ones enjoyed exploring, climbing the boulders around the house, and watching the chipmunks and hummingbirds. On our first morning there, three mule deer were spotted right outside our window. The owners were great to work with in the booking process and even called us the night before we left for Colorado assuring us they were available by phone at any time if we needed something or had questions. This truly is a great house for family gatherings and vacation relaxation. Thanks Chuck and Coleen!"

  • Absolutely Perfect - we didn't want to leave!

    "The house was perfect for our little getaway! It had everything we needed and was in a great location. We were so excited that we could walk to all the little shops downtown. We had breakfast on the patio every morning - it was so peaceful and the kids loved seeing the kids every morning. They came right up to the house. Everything was beautiful, just perfect! Christie was fantastic and we really appreciated everything she did to accommodate our changing travel plans. I have already recommended this rental to other friends and we can not wait to come back myself!!"

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.
