  • 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!"

  • Wedding

    "Very nice place! Clean and well maintained. Rented for 2 nights for a family wedding - stayed with extended family, using all 3 bedrooms and open areas with air mattresses. Downstairs TV could only be used for watching movies (not TV), but that wasn't a problem. Beautiful view of Lake Mary. Only complaint was that we couldn't get the hot tub above 98 degrees - buttons didn't work."

  • Very nice rental home!

    "This house turned out to be great for our multi family vacation. It's a lot bigger inside than the pictures show. Big pullout couch was a nice surprise. It's in a secluded, quiet spot in the trees but still a 10 to 15 minute walk to downtown or the grocery store! A big highlight were the 2 bull elk that were eating and sparring/playing out in the front yard one morning! Also saw turkeys and a fox (and a bobcat but in a different part of estes park). Owners are so helpful and nice. Couldn't have asked for a better place."

  • Wonderful Vacation!

    "Our family decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Colorado to have a snowy Christmas vacation. Within hours of leaving my contact information, owner Wendall called and quickly provided all the information that we needed. Our family of 5 found the house to be perfect for us, and very comfortable, with everything we needed. We were traveling from Florida, and Wendell had left sleds out, available for the kids to use, which they loved. The weather turned out to be REALLY cold, but we stayed warm and cozy - Wendall called to check on us and make sure that heat/pipes were all surviving the cold snap. The living room with its large windows was the perfect place to sit and watch the snow fall with a cup of tea. We loved the entire vacation - RMNP sledding, Estes Park lights, the elk and other wildlife. My kids would love to make this an annual trip!"

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.
