  • Nice Stay

    "My family of 6 enjoyed staying at this lovely home in Estes Park. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The fire pit was great. Enjoyed sitting out by it at night, making s'mores and listening to the coyotes howl and the elk bugle. Had some late night visits from the bugling elk. Wonderful experience and will look forward to visiting again."

  • Perfect 40th Anniversary!

    "The 1st-floor-only option was the most enjoyable vacation lodging we've ever had. We'd go back in a heartbeat. It was a 40th wedding anniversary for us, and the house was so just right. It's a combination of peaceful privacy and close-to-everything location that we wouldn't have found in a commercial property. We won't forget: 1. Morning tea on the sun porch gazing up at Lumpy Ridge. 2. How clean and fresh everything was! We were completely at ease here, even stretched out on the floor by the fireplace. 3. The luxurious, spotless, spacious ceramic-tile shower. 4. Most impressive, to me, was the cleverness with which the re-design of this old worker's cottage has been carried out. It must have taken months of thought. Examples: You unload the dishwasher just inches from the plate-storage drawer. Photos in each drawer show you where things go. And I still can't figure out how they changed the original floor plan to make the small kitchen and dining room seem airy and spacious. All these make a vacation less work and more fun. 5. Strolling down to Lake Estes in the evening. Estes Park itself did not disappoint. We especially loved the river walk and the Rocky Mountain Nature Association's informative and breath-taking tour over the Trail Ridge Road. This is not Kansas, Toto! And the manager and husband are surely among the most enjoyable people in town. No regrets. We loved it."

  • Awesome relaxing weekend

    "We stayed at the cottage last weekend when we came to the area to visit our son. We LOVED it !! Very nice & clean & just the perfect spot for our weekend in CO. Everything was so nice and comfortable. We had no problems with water pressure or running out of hot water, there was plenty of hot water for both of us. We will stay here again. The weather was overcast and rainy during our stay, can't wait to come back in warmer weather and use the deck ! I miss it already :) Beautiful surroundings, we walked up the road every morning and noticed something new each day. Thanks for a relaxing weekend :)"

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.
