About the property

Right downtown with a short drive to RMNP!

Please read this description thoroughly before booking as many questions and concerns are addressed below.


This is a brand new to us listing so there aren't many reviews yet. Please scroll down to see the VRBO numbers of our other condos in the same building so that you can see our great reviews! We have great customer service and care a lot about our guests!

You must be 24 years of age or older to rent/stay alone in this condo. We are very strict with this policy.

Steps from Estes Park’s beautiful downtown Riverwalk, this condo is a 3-bedroom, 2 bath loft with a full kitchen, jetted tub, two living spaces and vaulted ceiling. This condo sleeps 6. However, there are a combination of sleeping options. You have the choice of 3 bedrooms with beds that each sleep two people or you can use the queen size sleeper sofas (2 of these). Though technically this condo could sleep more, we only allow 6 at time (we can make some accommodations for families with young children, but please talk to us first. We will not make exceptions for more than 6 adults, please don't ask.) There is a washer and dryer in this condo.

While you sit on the deck out front you can gaze at a majestic mountain view. This building has one private patio off upstairs bedroom and a shared deck/patio spaces which include chairs a picnic table and shared gas grill.

This is a DOWNTOWN condo. This means that there could be traffic noise from the road. Most of our guests to not notice or mind but we like to be up front about it. The appeal to this place is its location to shopping and restaurants. Parking in Estes Park can be difficult in the busy summer (it's much better the rest of the year). Here, you can park once and use the free shuttles that the city provides to make for a laid back vacation experience.

When reserving, double check that the email address is correct or you will not receive email responses from VRBO and we will have no way of knowing that you are not receiving these. We ALWAYS sends a personal confirmation, if you do not see a message within 24 hours of booking, go into VRBO/Homeaway and verify that you entered your email correctly and look for messages from us.

Happy Family Rentals would like to treat you to one of the treasures of Colorado, Elkins Whiskey. Your first drink is our treat. You will get more info. on how to take advantage of this when you check into the condo.

**If you choose to reserve, please tell us a bit about yourself. We are careful about who we rent to and like to know a bit about our guests. Thanks!

*Cancellation Policy: Cancellation refund of a 100% outside of 30 days. Then, 50% if outside of 15 days, with $50 charge for credit card processing that we are charged by VRBO. If inside of 15 days you will forfeit your entire payment.Your deposit and cleaning fee will be returned to you. We recommend that you consider trip insurance if there could be a chance for late notice cancellation.


We do not have central A/C. Most places in Estes Park do not as MOST days and evenings are very mild and the mountain fresh air is preferred. We have installed two stand up air conditioners which help with the heat during the times that it's unseasonably warm.

Check-in is 4pm and Check-out is 10am. Please do not ask for an early/late arrival/departure as it is rarely possible due to the schedule of our cleaners, especially in the summer. Owner will notify you if an early arrival is possible.

There is no smoking inside or within 50 feet of the building and no pets, please.

There are occasional times when we need to enter the condo for a repair, to restock something for our cleaners, etc. We always do it during the day and always make an attempt to contact our guests beforehand but if we don’t get a reply, we may knock and if no one is there, let ourselves in to do the brief maintenance. If we get reports/complaints of rowdiness, smoking or pets, we will come check on our property without notice to the guest.

About Kelli Gambee

We are the Gambee's and we live about an hour away and love our Colorado home in Estes Park. We enjoy downtown events and shopping after a beautiful day of exploring Rocky Mountain National Park.

Kelli Gambee purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kelli Gambee chose Estes Park

This is a great condo for a couple of small families to get together or one large family with three bedrooms and 2 baths and great views of the mountains.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about this home, besides the comfortable living space is the short distance to everything downtown. Don't worry about trying to find a parking space in town because you can just walk anywhere.

We enjoyed just walking to shops and restaurants, coming back to freshen up, relax by the fire, then head out exploring again. Great location.

Christmas in Colorado 2018

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the Loft for our Christmas visit to Estes Park. Kelli's unit was perfect for us. Had all that we needed and was situated perfectly for morning walks around Lake Estes and evening walks with snow falling, experiencing the beautiful Christmas lighting throughout the town. That combined with trips into RMNP to hike and snow shoe made it a perfect winter wonderland for our Christmas Holiday with our son and daughter. Thanks Kelli.

We loved the location and the beds were very comfortable. We had a really good time and enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

The gathering area was fun to play games in with the big table. The place was nice and clean. The only thing we needed was a full length mirror for six women. A mirror in one of the bedrooms would have helped when we were all getting ready to go. The location was perfect though!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this nice review. We've never thought about installing a full length mirror as no one else has mentioned it but it's a great idea! Thanks for the suggestion.

Very nice accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, well stocked and comfortable condo. Clear instructions for use of condo. Great location!! We were pleasantly surprised by a tree lighting in the square just across the street. Only negative was not being able to check in until 4 pm. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad that you found the condo suitable for your needs. We too wish we could always offer an earlier check-in. Unfortunately, unlike a hotel we do not have onsite cleaning staff. There are few cleaning companies in EP and because of that our housekeepers clean over 40 places in the city which means their schedule varies greatly from day to day. Sometimes they get to us early and other times they can't get to our places until later in the day. When they clean our condos early we always message our guests to let them know they can enter before 4pm. Unfortunately, this just wasn't the case on the day you visited. Glad you had a nice time.

A Fine Place at the Gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park

  • 5 of 5

My grandson and I planned on hiking at altitude for three days, and wanted a place to stay in to cook and rest for the next day's activities. This place met our needs. There were separate bedrooms and bathrooms for each of us, and two common areas, one on each floor, to allow us space between us as needed. The kitchen was fully outfitted, and the grill worked fine. We ate quite well with no hiccups during preparation and cooking. The place was clean and comfortable. It also was well-located for everything we needed. It was within easy walking distance froms shops, restaurants, and other features in downtown Estes Park. We really enjoyed the place and highly recommend it.
