  • always great!

    "This is our second time staying at the little Brown cabin, it was just as great as the first! Is always so clean and well kept. We loved the addition of wifi! Again, we had multiple wildlife "friends" come and visit, making it extra special for our daughter (who has named one of the mule deer Geoffrey :) the location is also perfect, close enough to downtown but far enough away to feel tenor and just mere minutes from RMNP."

  • Wonderful Spring Break spot with our boys & dog!

    "We recently spent 4 nights in the 2 bedroom cabin over our Spring Break. We have been to the Estes Park area countless times and we feel we found a real gem at Overlook Ranch! Our cabin was clean, comfortable and didn't smell at all like dogs! (I had wondered if it would but it really didn't.) We enjoyed making a fire in the wood burning stove. We did lots of fun things at the ranch -frisbee golf, basketball, hiking, horseshoe and just relaxing. We saw deer and elk on the property. Ed let us see the other cabins are we are already trying to arrange a gathering to use the whole property! The big cabin and the little studio are very impressive with the attention to detail. We can hardly wait to go back. Our sons thought it was the perfect vacation. Thank Ed!!"

  • 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."

  • Wow! All I can say is wow!

    "We had such a great visit, this was truly one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in! The bedrooms are all well appointed and the beds are all comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well stocked, I brought my food processor from home only to find one in one of the cabinets! This location would be great for RMNP visitors, as well as vacationers to Estes Park. We had a family reunion of sorts, and this house was absolutely perfect for our needs. My 79 year old mother proved she still had ping pong skills that rivaled all of us youngins! The plethora of televisions in the house came in handy as well with all of the college and NFL football games over New Years weekend. The guys watched countless games, while the ladies watched movies in the basement. This rental house deserves an easy A+, and we would have no hesitation to book it again or recommend it to our other friends and family. We took a family field trip to the Stanley Hotel for their 90 minute tour, very interesting and informative. Was less than 10 minutes from the house. Our two kids are 8 and 10 and they really liked it, wasn't too scary at all...although apparently Jim Carrey refused to set foot in the place after an incident while shooting the original Dumb and Dumber!"

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.
