  • Great Thanksgiving!

    "Our family really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful cabin. We spent a long Thanksgiving weekend here. The cabin is immaculate. Everything in great condition. We used the kitchen which was well stocked with everything you need. The internet and TV were perfect. We enjoyed the unusually warm weather and took several walks around the area. It was really fun to have our small "city" dog with us. She really enjoyed the nature. Working with the owners was easy they would e-mail me every time I e-mailed them with a question. When we got there we were greeted by the owner and he showed us around and was very accommodating with us. We enjoyed going into Estes Park which was just a short drive away. We really enjoyed the location of the cabin and liked being a little out of town. The cabin is very well maintained and very unique. We really hope we can visit again."

  • 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"!"

  • We Love to Cook!

    "We chose Eagles Landing because it was large enough to accommodate a crowd, had beautiful views, and was near RMNP. The drive up the hill, thouigh, was a bit of a shock, especially the first time, and after arriving in one piece, we were not inclined to go back out, for the 15 minute drive into Town. As a result, we did mostly cook and eat in, the entire time we were there. If the House sleeps 10, there could be a couple of larger pots. A small food processor, like the B & D Handichopper, would be welcome. The coffee maker was adequate, but small. Instructions on making the televisions, with satellite channels, work, would be appreciated. On the whole, though, a great vacation. Memorable."

    "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."

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.
