  • Son's Wedding, family gathering

    "What a spectacular venue for a special event and a family gathering! Our four adult children, their spouses and our 6 grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our time together. Besides our immediate family, we hosted numerous friends and family during our stay - everyone feeling right at home. Spacious, yet comfortable with amenities for everyone, and an impressive collection of antiques. Whether entertaining or just relaxing with our children and grandchildren, we felt very much at home. Bob and Carole were most helpful as we planned our time in Estes Park, and gracious hosts during our stay! For something special we highly recommend Fall River Lodge. Thanks very much for wonderful time in beautiful Estes Park!"

  • Wedding

    "Very nice place! Clean and well maintained. Rented for 2 nights for a family wedding - stayed with extended family, using all 3 bedrooms and open areas with air mattresses. Downstairs TV could only be used for watching movies (not TV), but that wasn't a problem. Beautiful view of Lake Mary. Only complaint was that we couldn't get the hot tub above 98 degrees - buttons didn't work."

  • Family Reunion

    "The Bear's Lair is an excellent place to rent for a fabulous vacation. The layout of the house makes it great for multigenerational groups. Most of the bedrooms lay away from the main area to give privacy and quiet. Then the 2 living areas are right above each other in the 2 floor house to give an area for different activities but keep you away from ones trying to sleep in or go to bed earlier than others. We enjoyed the openness of the kitchen and living room area. With 5 children ages 4 or below it made a great area to let children play while cooking or playing games at the table. The second living area gave the older children room to watch movies or play pool, etc. The area is a great area to travel just a bit and enjoy many mountain activities such as white-water rafting, hiking, tours of gold mines and picnicking while being close enough to Golden and Denver to be able to go to the zoo and amusement park. Just a few of the many activities our group were able to enjoy doing."

  • Spacious well-stocked house, great price & location

    "We stayed in this great place for 5 nights. Wonderful owners, spacious home, decorated nicely with all amenities including great coffee. A 20 minute walk to the downtown area, close to bike trails, hikes, shopping, all is easily accessible. This home is located on a lovely quiet suburban street. Fit 4 adults very comfortably."

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!
