Recent Front Range reviews
"I stayed for 2 weeks in August to get away from the heat in Phoenix. The studio is very roomy for one. I found the deck area particularly relaxing. It was secured for my little dog to be able to roam and play and chase squirrels. It also provided a cool and peaceful break from downtown Boulder. I loved the constant sound of Boulder Creek and the quick access to the walking path. The Studio was clean and well-cared for. Dorothy and Charlie provided maps and brochures for local attractions that I found helpful. The pictures are very accurate. But be aware there are no screens on the windows or doors - be prepared for mosquitos at night. I purchased groceries for myself but any other essentials I needed were provided for in the compact kitchen. The Studio is attached to the main house but I heard very little through the shared walls. Depending on your length of stay, a washer and dryer would have been an added bonus. The location was very convenient for quick trips to town, hiking and sightseeing. Overall, this was a very relaxing vacation in a most serene setting."Guest: Cindy Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 15, 2014View listing
"Wow, what a nice place to chill out before and after many awesome hikes in RMNP! Estes Elk House is absolutely beautiful. Spacious, comfy, and warm. Great kitchen for cooking. Hot tub was perfect after day-long hikes and horseback riding. Nice location - 15 minute drive to the park. Hope to stay here again. Charlie from Chicago."Guest: Charlie A.

"I arrived here for the Boulder 70.3 on 6/13. This place was just perfect for me for the weekend. It's super close to both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, so I didn't have to go out to eat. It's close to pretty much anything you would need. The kitchen was well-stocked, even with spices and olive oil, etc, which you don't always see. The bed was so comfortable and I really liked the shampoo, conditioner, and lotion that were there for my use. I would highly recommend this place for 1-3 people. Loved it!"Guest: Margaret Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: August 17, 2014View listing
"We wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful -beautiful home. We had a great stay-its a perfect location for us to meet up with friends and old neighbors. We really enjoyed it-your home is so nice and close enough to walk and enjoy downtown Boulder without noise and students. We hope you will let us book again- you have really renovated this beautifully. The thought and care really shows, Tom's sister is an architect in DC and it takes a lot to renovate any home, much less a 100 yr+ one, and you have really done a great job.

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!
