About Mike Travis
We relocated to Colorado from Dallas, TX in 1999. My wife and I met in Dallas and were heading to Colorado about 4 times a year so we finally decided to move there. We chose Estes Park to start and then decided where we wanted to live permanently and we fell in love with the community and the area and decided to stay. It is a great place to visit.
Mike Travis purchased this House in 2004
Why Mike Travis chose Estes Park
We live in our house 3 months a year and we live in North Carolina the remainder of the year but we always love coming back and being here.
What makes this House unique
We remodeled the house when we purchased it in 2004. We used sustainable materials and opened up the main living areas and added lots of windows so you really feel like you are in the mountains when you stay here. Lots of wildlife to view as well.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Very nice, clean home, decorated nicely. Did love the art work. Kitchen very well stocked, and the bathrooms had plenty towels and unlike other comments, PLENTY of toilet paper.....a whole closet full.
Mike contacted us upon arrival wanting to know if there was anything we needed and to not hesitate if we had any issues or questions.
There were comments about it being secluded. While the house is not in a "typical" neighborhood, I would not classify it as secluded. There are enough pines to give you a barrier of sorts, but not private.
Our stay was 3 nights. The additional fees, (cleaning fees, VRBO fees and in our case, pet fee) are the same no matter how long you stay. Unless your staying at least a week, it's not very cost effective for 2 people. It would be a GREAT rental for families. Close to town and the National park.
The house was our home for 7 days. it was everything and more for our family. We had great views of the mountains and the wild life showed up every day elk, deer and even a bear. It was a wonderful stay. Highly recommend.
Wonderful family vacation!
We loved this property! The views were spectacular and we loved that we continuously saw wildlife, including rabbits, deer, elk, hummingbirds, etc. Mike was available if needed; he was a great host. The house was beautiful and clean. And, the kitchen was nice and big so we could cook big family meals. Great place!
Over priced. We stayed in a luxury house with 5 bedroom for a week in Colorado Springs for the same.
The kitchen was nice and had plenty of cooking supplies. The grill was out of propane and we needed more toilet paper and we got it as soon as I let the owner know. The only complaint which is a big one is the beds. The mattresses to all the bed were awful.very uncomfortable, time for new ones. Thanks for sharing your home.
Great location and lovely house
This home was conveniently located but also in a quiet neighborhood where we saw deer in the morning and enjoyed the quiet seclusion. Everything you need to cook with and the house was well cared for. I might recommend throwing in a roll of TP in your suitcase because there were about 12 squares left on one roll for both baths, and 4 people to split it, until we could make it to the grocery store the next day. But loved our stay and the house!
beautiful views - great location
My family just loved staying here. Plenty of room with all amenities. Wildlife very near...elk came in late afternoon. Easy drive to town and park entrance. All listed items/services were available (and enjoyed by us).
