"My husband and 2 kids stayed here for the Thanksgiving break. The house was exactly as described. The location was ideal. There is a nice short cut through the local middle school to Pearl Street and the local market is an adorable little Whole Foods. There are 3 breakfast places within a block. We had a great time. Thanks Lorna for the hospitality."Guest: Kate H. Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: December 1, 2014View listing
"We booked the house for a family hiking weekend. 5 adults and 2 young children (4 and 7 years old). What a gorgeous home! The property is just secluded enough to feel like you're away from everything but close enough to the main road to get into Estes Park easily. Everything was clean and well stocked. The beds were comfortable and everything worked fine. The owners live on the property in an RV. They're extremely friendly folks with lots of cool information about the area. (follow their bear advice, it'll save your car from being rummaged through). The kids had a blast feeding the horse and exploring the woods behind the house. We'll definitely be back!"Guest: Jay S.

"This cozy cottage is perfectly located with easy access to Old Town, CSU campus and west side of town. We were visiting our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandkids and wanted to be near their home as well. The cottage had all the amenities we needed (except W/D, but understand why that isn't possible). Very comfortable bed on main floor. Love the desk in the master bedroom as well as I am a Realtor and work always seems to be there even on vacation. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful cottage."Guest: Robin S.

"This place was perfect! We had a group of 6 staying at the cabin (3 couples) and we had a blast. The cabin had everything we needed to cook and to make ourselves at home. It was very close to Estes Park and RMNP. Marilyn was very easy to work with and left very detailed instructions for everything. We were, however, expecting the house to be a little more secluded (based on the pictures). The house was only a few yards from 2 other neighbors and the access to the river was a little farther than we hoped. Other than that, everything was just as the pictures described. Hopefully next time we will can stay more than two nights! Thanks again, Marilyn!"Guest: Krista B. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 15, 2014View listing
Front Range Travel Tips
Colorado’s Front Range, a Great Vacation Destination
The "Front Range" is a colloquial term for the area located just east of the foothills of the Front Range. It covers the areas of Boulder, Black Hawk, Central City, Clear Creek County, Estes Park, Fort Collins, Golden, Greeley, Longmont, Loveland and Nederland. Situated less than an hour’s drive from Denver and its major airport, you will find yourself in the foothills of the Front Range Mountains. Average temperatures here are in the mid-20s Fahrenheit in winter to the high-80s Fahrenheit in summer.
Getting around this beautiful area could not be easier. Good interstate and main highways make accessing each of the wonderful cities and towns simple and convenient. In fact, there are more scenic and historic drives within easy distance of our Front Range vacation homes than any other state in the country.
An Ideal Outdoor Experience for the Whole Family
For a vacation where outdoor activities and sight-seeing are high on your "to do" list, you will be delighted with a Front Range lodging. Wherever you choose as a base your vacation, you will find plenty to do and see. It is said that the Front Range inspired the words for "America the Beautiful" and once here, you will understand why. To see the panorama that inspired these words, take the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. On the trip, you will pass by some of the oldest living things on earth--the bristlecone pines. Some of which are over 2,000 years old! Give the kids a taste of farm life by visiting a real working farm. Or visit the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest and Pawnee National Grasslands for 1.5 million acres of wilderness with activities like horse riding, hiking and biking in summer and snowmobiling in winter.
For less active day trips, there are a variety of wonderful drives. The Mount Evans Scenic and Historic Byway will not only provide glorious views, it is also one of the best places to catch sight of the local bighorn sheep. The historic Lariet Loop encompasses the stunning Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, the town of Golden--famous for the Coors Brewery--and the sight of the grave of Wild Bill Cody, also known as Buffalo Bill. In Central City, the Victorian age opera house is worth a visit along with the historic Moffat Tunnel. A detour will take you to the ghost towns of Hesse and Apex.
The Majesty of the Mountains
If truly spectacular scenery is a must for your perfect destination, the obvious place to find view after amazing view is the Rocky Mountains. Winter here brings world-famous skiing and the fun continues throughout the year. Whether you want to ride a horse or a bike or just hike, there are an abundance of trails to explore, from easy to death-defying! Just imagine choosing one of our Front Range vacation rentals with the Rocky Mountains as your backdrop!
