"Julie's house was absolutely perfect for our small wedding outside of Estes Park. The setting at the top of the mountain provided the best backdrop we could have asked for. The house was very clean on arrival and had very comfortable beds. We very comfortably slept 12 people in the house and had more than enough room to spread out. I appreciated Julie's communication throughout the whole process - she didn't mind all the small questions I had and was always responsive within hours, even minutes. I highly recommend this house for family vacations, company retreats, and small weddings. Thank you so much for providing such a great experience for my family this past weekend!"

More than words can come close to describing - perfect!
"This was our first time to use VRBO, and to visit the Estes Park area. I reviewed more than 100 homes before choosing Overlook. Everything, EVERYTHING was perfect about our visit - the house was absolutely perfect, from its location, it's cleanliness, and it's amenities. We were close to everything yet privately located. We so enjoyed visiting Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains - our favorite hikes were to Emerald, Dream and Bear Lakes. Overlook House was the PERFECT location to come home to each evening. The views were unmatchable, and we sat in the hottub each evening looking out over the Rockies. The view that Overlook House provided was better than any I could've hoped for, and The owners prepared the home to perfection. I love to cook, and there's a wonderful kitchen, in addition to the great bedrooms and huge spacious living room. We also built a fire each evening to take off the chill of the hikes! Not only do we want to return... We want to return SOON, and are planning our next trip to Overlook now! I cannot even imagine staying anywhere else, and we now call this "our" Overlook House.
Everything about our experience was 5 stars - and Dean was amazingly responsive to us both before our stay when I had questions, and during our stay to make sure we were ok and to service the hottub.
110% the best place to be - the most incredible views and home away from home!!! We genuinely loved Overlook House as our own!'"

"We have a group of guys that get together for a trip every 18-24 months. This time, we picked Estes Park, as one of the group had never been. Actually, he picked it. This trip, there were 5 of us, so we needed 5 bedrooms.
I went on VRBO and found this cabin and sent out the info to the group. The hot tub and pool table caught their eye. After getting 100% agreement, I contacted VRBO to see about booking.
The owner got back with me quickly, and we were able to book it for our long weekend (4 nights). A few things were different about this booking. I had never had to prepay way in advance, sign a contract, or pay a damage deposit before. This was not a bad thing, just different than what I have done in the past.
We arrived late on Friday night, unloaded our rent car and selected our rooms. We hit the sack nearly immediately as weather had made some of the arrivals in Denver very late. The next day we had to go back to Denver to pick up our last member (his flight was canceled the evening before).
This cabin is supplied with just about everything you need. It even had a coffee bean grinder that we put to work. We also were able to use the grill and cooked some steaks and ate out on the patio.
As I said before, the hot tub was a huge hit. Soaking up the stars and listening to the river roll by was enjoyed by all. It was also appreciated after long hikes in the park.
If you have a large group, give this place a try. It will sleep 12 easily. You will not believe how nice the back patio is with the river, hot tub, grill, and tables. The view is awesome too.
By the way, wildlife is abundant. We saw a lot of turkey and some huge elk. I also reviewed this cabin on Yelp and was able to post some pictures."

"House is wonderful and views unbelievable! We were there with kids and grandkids and another couple. The house was perfectly arranged for all of us to be together and have privacy too. Two living rooms and the rec room downstairs were all used and sometimes at the same time. The home was very clean.
There are some minor issues with the house that we think come along with renting it out back to back, like lightbulbs out, blinds not working, squeaky ceiling fan, a garage door not working and the covers for the jets on the hot tub were found in the bottom of the hot tub. It still worked fine and we used it everyday! Just needs a few hours with a handyman and then perfection! We would definitely rent again, loved this side of Estes, the elk were amazing, the night skies unbelievable and waking to that view, Wow!"
