  • Perfect, comfortable, great location

    "What a beautiful property! Just a few minutes from downtown and a great location. The view is amazing and we couldn't have asked for better weather! (i know that's not really about the home, but it was a plus!) The beds were very comfortable, nice linens, and everything was roomy. The property is immaculate and the owners provided everything to make you comfortable. Thanks so much!"

  • A great location but I expected a little more... The good and the bad

    "If I could I would give this home 3 1/2 stars, but I don't have that option. The Good: This house is in a great location. Convenient to the park, town and many of the better restaurants The house is spacious The home is beautifully decorated with great furniture The property management team was very responsive Even with all this I will a bit disappointed. With a high end rental I expect the little things to be taken care of and in high quality. I would have liked to give the property 5 stars, but I can't. The bad: There was no cell reception at the house (which is fine, but...). They have a land line in the house for guests to use but you can't call long distance or anyone who does not have a local number without a calling card. This was an annoyance. Since there is no or spotty cell service at the house I wish that there was a phone to use to call my family and friends without the hassle of trying to find/buy a calling card. I don't watch too much television, especially in a beautiful place like Estes Park, but occasionally after a long day I will watch a football game. There is one very small flat panel (probably 27 inches) in the living room that you must sit at a distance from to watch (Based on room configuration). It was hard to see the small TV from this distance. All the rest of the TV's in the house were even smaller and CRT (You know the old black boxy TV's). Most of the houses I have rented with a fire place come with a starter set of firewood, so that when you arrive you can have your first fire. This house did not, immediately after I arrived I had to go back out and buy wood to have a fire. The lighting in the living room was poor making it hard to read at night. They could easily put in brighter lights. The quality of the extra blankets was very poor, they looked like airplane blankets. The kitchenware was mismatched and below average. The plates were a plastic. The stove was a very small, poor electric stove. The towels were poor quality, rough and scratchy. All in all this is a beautiful house in a great location. It has great furniture and is big and spacious. However a lot of the small touches such as TV's, blankets, kitchenware, phone, firewood, etc. are non existent or below average. Not what I expect from a high-end rental."

  • Northridge Nest was just right for our family reunion in Estes Park this October!

    "For our first VRBO rental we were so pleased with the Nest in Estes Park, Colorado. We had families from the East coast and the Northwest descend upon Colorado for a five day reunion in the town where many of us had spent happy years growing up. It was dark when we arrived and we had to warm the house up. Once we got all the thermostats working it was fairly cozy. We would suggest keeping an eye on the temperature during your stay so you stay warm. We were able to access the key and suggest returning it in to the holder in case you forget to take keys with you when you venture out to the park. We forgot and it saved us a couple of times! We had four family units and each group had just the perfect place to stay in the house. Our teen girls loved their aero beds, with extra blankets, in the garage where they had their own space and a heating unit that kept them comfortable. The rest of us spread out in the house. We fixed our own food during our stay and had a bit of a problem with a burner on the stove not working. We made do and enjoyed the counter space and table near the kitchen where we spent a good share of our time. The kitchen was fairly well stocked and had plently of pots & pans and casserole dishes to use. The refrigerator even had some items we purchased and wouldn't have if we had known. The fireplace was nice and we purchased wood and fire logs to use in it a number of evenings during our stay. The big screen TV was nice to view from the kitchen as well as the living room. The décor is very nice with birds and trees and nature tying the Nest theme together. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms seemed adequate. There was plenty of bedding and towels for everyone to use. A special treat was the elk herd that bedded down around the north side of the house each day. The bull was beautiful with his rack of antlers and there was even a little calf. The views were nice and one morning we took a walk around the neighborhood, a neighbor stopped by to say hi and asked where we lived. He said the owners were real nice folks. We will certainly consider staying in the Northridge Nest for future trips to Estes Park. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

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.
