  • Great Heat Escape 2014

    "My family and I escaped the Houston heat for July 2014 and stayed at 130 Alpine Dr. After researching several properties in Estes Park, I decided on this one and it did not disappoint. Everything met and in most cases exceeded my expectations. We had plenty of space and the ammenities were fantastic. The views cannot be beat! It truly is a short drive into town but you are far enough away to really enjoy nature."

  • A great time again in a super comfortable home.

    "This was our second extended stay in Irene's home. We stayed there in September 2013. As before, we were super comfortable and very relaxed. The neighborhood is quiet and away from other houses, but not isolated. And a great view. Lots of wildlife around the house. Downtown is about a 7 minute drive. The location is also convenient to entrances to RMNP and to hiking locations like Twin Sisters, the Estes Cone, Lily Lake, and the Allenspark area. As with September 2013, we met more neighbors while out on walks around the area. The home is beautifully furnished. I never feel like I am in a rental. Irene is wonderful to work with. Quick and complete responses. We are right now planning additional stays in her home."

  • 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."

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.
