  • Absolutely the best!

    "Our stay here was absolutely amazing! Linda and Bob were the kindest and most welcoming people we have met. They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect! The house is beautiful! There was plenty of room for everyone and the house had everything we needed to entertain our friends. We will be back there every year from now on for our annual get together with our friends. We absolutely loved this place."

  • Rustic Charm

    "Six of us enjoyed our stay at the cabin from 8/6 to 8/13. Looking at the pictures, we were a little concerned it might be a tad small for two senior citizens, two adults and two five-year-olds to cohabitate comfortably for a week, but the price was right, and besides, I had read in other reviews that the pictures do not do the place justice, so we took a chance. After seeing it in person, I think the photographer might have used whatever the opposite of a fisheye lens is. The cabin is listed as having two bedrooms, but the sun room can be, and was, claimed as a third by my boys, and they loved it. They got to see the supermoon shining through the wall of windows in “their” bedroom. (There are windows everywhere in that cabin.) The patio and two of the bedrooms sit right on the river. There is nothing quite like sleeping to the sound of that river! My mom, an incurable insomniac, says she slept the best she has ever slept in her life. The property managers were very quick to respond to our request for propane. The kitchen is well stocked. The location is perfect. It is secluded enough, yet minutes from everything. We were visited by a deer that dined right outside the picture window that overlooks the river and a badger that played hide and seek in the tall grass (apparently few in Estes Park mow, better to attract the wildlife I guess); we saw several magpies, hummingbirds and some giant, weird looking flying insect that I still cannot identify. The cabin is lacking in certain modern amenities like a flat screen/digital TV (it’s got an old tube), a dishwasher and laundry but that was okay (and made even more okay by the Wi-Fi it does have). The Laundromat is a quarter of a mile away and in the same building as a grocery store and gift shop. I don’t usually get to shop while I’m doing laundry, so I was happy. For the first few days we were there, we were cussing what appeared to be a fairly new oven because nothing was cooking right. We’re from Oklahoma. We don’t have to adjust cooking temps for altitude. So if you can remember to do that, the oven works great. The only change I would make would be to add another chair, either to the table or to another part of the cabin. The table only seats four. There is another chair in the living room that can be moved to the dining room, but that still left one person standing to eat. I might also update the TV. And get sharper knives. We really loved that cabin."

  • Masterpiece of Heaven

    "Our family came here to spend the New year in Estes Park. The house was spectacular! The view from the deck is out of this world. we saw Deer and elk every day. The inside of the house is very cozy and clean. There is a great game room for the kids and adults. this home sits on a beautiful piece of property. The outdoor hot tub was very relaxing and it even snowed while we were in it(that was a bonus). every bedroom was done in good taste. The reservation staff was friendly and made out choice an easy one. they recommended this home and it was worth it!! We will be back and will recommend it to all of our friends. Thanks for having this little piece of heaven in Estes Park."

  • We loved this house

    "A group of eight fifty-somethings came for a hiking/general outdoor vacation and made MV our basecamp for the week. We had a blast in Estes Park. Tons of hiking, day trips to Hot Sulphur Springs and Fort Collins (breweries), ATV'ing, wildlife watching, etc. This house was perfect for us. It is close enough to town and RMNP that you can be in town in 5 minutes and in the park in 15 minutes. One bedroom is upstairs, and three bedrooms are downstairs, and one of the downstairs bedrooms has its own kitchen, so if folks keep different hours, no problem. The main dining table seats 8, and we enjoyed playing hard all day and then coming home and cooking dinner at the house. Kitchen is very well equipped. Good wireless connection if you need to get some work done or just want to post all of your hiking photos. The view from the living room and deck really can't be captured in the photos here. It's fantastic to get up in the morning and see the glow on the mountains. I would highly recommend this house to groups of adults or to big families that need a good home base. Finally, Range Properties (the property manager) was great to deal with. We accidentally left a camera battery behind, and they sent someone out to get it and sent it back to us."

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.
