Overview

About the property

Two-bedroom condo in a prime location: close to town, RMNP & on the Fall River!

Vacation rental registration #6122. Located on the beautiful Fall River! Open to responsible couples and small families, you'll love the location of this two-bedroom, two full bathroom condo just steps from river's edge and the soothing sounds of rushing water. The Fall River entrance to RMNP is just 3 miles to the west and the town center is 1.5 miles to the east. The surrounding setting is peaceful without the noise of town but yet you’ll find the condo so wonderfully convenient to everything. The condo comfortably accommodates 4 guests, but is also nicely sized for couples wanting a little more room to spread out. Easy access via major roads and streets makes this a great choice for a winter getaway.

Updated in August of 2017, the two levels of the condo’s interior features the following: sturdy beetle-kill aspen log furniture, two large upper level bedrooms with king beds, two full bathrooms with jetted tubs, a gas fireplace, a full kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and views out the back to the Fall River. Additional amenities include WiFi, gas grill and a washer/dryer. Natural wood ceilings and other rustic touches throughout add warmth and complement the rest of condo’s style to complete the mountain feel you’d expect in a Rocky Mountain getaway.

Adjacent to the property, a paved multi-use path passes by the condo near the road and allows you to take a scenic walk, run or bike ride into town. Nicky’s restaurant is next door and offers walk-to dining or carryout. Elk and other wildlife frequently follow the river corridor and pass through the condo grounds creating exciting photo ops without leaving the property.

What is provided? You’ll find our condo well stocked with most of the items you’ll need for a comfortable stay. You really only need to worry about bringing your own food (condiments included) and personal toiletries. Here is a list of many of the items we provide: bath/kitchen towels, bed linens, cookware, dishes, utensils, dish soap, hand soap, foil, cooking spray, S&P, coffee filters, paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, Kleenex, trash bags, laundry and dishwasher detergent, dryer sheets, hair dryers and more. Please note: we do not provide little bottles of shampoos, lotions, etc. like many hotels provide.

PLEASE READ a few important policies before proceeding: Provide the first and last names of all guests when submitting a reservation. All guests must be 25 years of age or older unless accompanied by a parent or guardian (we check this when in doubt). We allow one dog up to 25 pounds (no exceptions) for a $50 length of stay fee. Check-in is 4pm or later, checkout is by 10am. No smoking!

When you reserve, please tell us a little something about you and your party. We are careful about who we rent to and like to get to know our guests.

** We make an effort to respond to all inquiries and reservations within 24 hours, but we do live very active lives and are sometimes away from a computer or cell service for a period of time. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience if you happen to reach out to us during one of these times. Your patience is appreciated. Thank you!**

We happily offer discounts to returning guests.

Are you wildlife watchers? As you enter RMNP via the Fall River entrance, just 3 miles to the west of the condo, you’ll find yourself in a section of the valley called Horseshoe Park. The meadows found here and nearby hillsides offer some of the best wildlife viewing on the east side of the park. We’ve seen elk, moose, bear and bighorn sheep here on our trips through the park. We also recommend traveling this way when headed over to the trails at the Bear Lake area. The distance is a few miles longer than going through town but it’s much more scenic.

Estes Park has become a year-round getaway destination. There is no doubt summer is a great time to visit, but it is also the busiest time of year. To avoid crowds, think about visiting other times of year. In fall, elk mating season (called the Rut) begins in September and can last into early October. This is such a fun time to visit and observe the behavior of territorial bulls defending their harems. At the same time this is going on, aspen leaves start to yellow, beginning first at higher elevations and progressing down the mountains as October approaches. The already gorgeous landscape becomes magical!

Winter in Estes Park is not as brutal as you might think. Because of its location on the dry side of the continental divide, annual snowfall only averages 33” a year. The average high in January is a bearable 39 degrees. Estes Park is blessed to see the sun about 300 days a year, so this helps melt snow and brighten moods quicker than other parts of the country where gray skies can last for weeks on end. RMNP is open throughout winter and offers opportunities for winter hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and more. Elk tend to stay at lower elevations in winter and are seen more frequently in and around town.

When spring rolls around, you’ll still find town and the park not too crowded. As temperatures warm and days lengthen, you’ll witness an amazing rebirth of the landscape. Elk calves start arriving in May. The combo of fewer people and increasingly nicer weather makes spring one of the premier times of year to visit. The big crowds won’t arrive until June, so enjoy a quieter--but no less beautiful—spring fling in Estes Park.

Thank you for viewing our listing!

About Ron & Kathy

Ohio is the state we call home. We've been in the vacation rental business for over 13 years, also owning and managing vacation cabins in the Hocking Hills of Ohio. We live very active lifestyles with hiking being one of our favorite outdoor activities. Taking hiking trips out West a couple times a year are trips we always look forward to and to now have our own place to stay in the mountains is truly a dream come true! We're excited to share our condo with other outdoor-loving couples and small families and are confident you'll find our condo a comfortable home away from home for your Rocky Mountain getaway.

Ron & Kathy purchased this condo in 2017

Why Ron & Kathy chose Estes Park

We’ve traveled to many nice mountain towns in the western US over the years but simply fell in love with Estes Park from the beginning. When we first saw the view of the valley with the surrounding mountains driving into town from the east on US 36 we said, “This is it!” We knew right then and there this was the place we wanted to own our very own vacation home in. Our search began a few months later in July of 2017 and, on the very first day of vacation home hunting, we were extremely lucky to find our condo available. Being in such a desirable location along the Fall River, we knew if we didn’t act someone else would. Well, needless to say, it all worked out for us. We feel like we were truly meant to be here!

What makes this condo unique

The location: mountains, town and river, depending on your mood. The town center is close enough to walk or bike into but yet far enough away to escape the noise and congestion. The Fall River entrance to RMNP is just three miles the other way on Fall River Road. Staying in? Open the back door and listen to the soothing sounds of the rushing Fall River, just a few yards from the back of the condo.

Pleasant and restful, just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything and more than the description given by the owners. The condo was decorated beautifully with comfort and relaxation in enjoyed hiking mind. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to prepare a big meal or just a snack for lunch. The owners attention to detail was impressive , providing spices and coffee in the kitchen and laundry products for the washer and dryer. We enjoyed hiking during the day and watching the grazing elk in the front and back yards later in the afternoon. Overall great vacation would stay here again and highly recommend this location. Thanks to the owners, Ron and Cathy!

A very nice condo off the beaten track from the busy downtown area. We enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this nicely maintained property. It was nice to be away from the downtown hubbub. It was very clean and comfortable. We will consider this property again if we ever return to Estes Park.

Awesome condo in Estes Park! Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This condo was awesome! It was very clean and cozy. The beds were very comfortable which we very much appreciated. We've stayed at many VRBO rentals where the beds/mattresses were cheap and hard but it is obvious the owners of this place chose above average quality beds. That goes the same for the furniture. It is quite cute and well maintained. The bathrooms were very clean and updated. The location was great for us since we spent most of our time in RMNP. It is just far enough out of town to be peaceful and quiet but only a couple minute drive if you need anything. I loved leaving the slider to the bedroom open at night so we could listen to the Fall river right in the back yard. It did not have a ton of dishes but for the four of us it was just fine. I could not find any trash bags which would have been nice. Overall this condo is a great place and I would definitely rent it again if we return to Estes Park, which I am hoping we will! Thank you for making our time in Estes Park so enjoyable!

Great location. Very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. With Fall River right out back, it doesn't get any better than that! Beds were comfortable, well stocked kitchen, nice BBQ, deck furniture was OK. For the folks in the front bedroom, it was a bit noisy at night with cars on the road and at Nicky's, so they couldn't open the windows. Got pretty warm for sleeping.

As a previous condo owner, let me offer a few suggestions to make it better...

- Need to add a mop and some cleaning supplies (e.g. 409, Windex) for spills, clean-up of deck table, counters, etc.

- Deck was pretty filthy. Should have been swept.and table/chairs cleaned off.

- Upgrade the TP. VERY thin.

- Add small bar soap for showers for the start of the visit

- Add mats for the bathtubs. Floor was very slippery.

- Tried, but couldn't light the fireplace. Igniter didn't seem to work.

- Area behind unit was in need of weed whacking. Foot tall weeds and grass.

- Faster WiFi, if possible. We had little to no cell service, so we were relying on WiFi, but was very slow at times.

Owner's Response: Randy, thank you for the review and offering a few suggestions. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and found the condo comfortable. Nicky’s closes at 9:30 pm during the week and 10 pm on weekends. We’re surprised much noise at all would have been noticed after these hours. We haven’t noticed this during the times we stay. Due to the unfortunate placement of the dryer vent coming out of the upper bathroom wall, sometimes when the dryer is running lint will fall onto the back deck. Perhaps this is what you were making reference to in your comment regarding the uncleanliness of the deck furniture. We stock name brand toilet tissue; however, to avoid waste, if guests buy some and leave it behind we will keep it out for the next guests. Sometimes the quality of what guests buy is not the same as we stock. Our bath tubs have textured floors so we cannot put no-slip mats in them. They will not stick, creating even a bigger slipping hazard. We’ll look into what other options might exist. We apologize for the difficulty in lighting the fireplace. With a phone call we could have offered assistance or had our local caretakers take a look at it. The native grass behind the condo building, although thin, was allowed to get pretty high, but we do know it was cut after your stay. We apologize if the Internet service was slow. There is more than one network to choose from. We personally have found the buildings WiFi service adequate and reliable. No other comments regarding slow service have been received from prior guests. We will monitor this.

Quiet river condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on the Fall River. Close to the park and town. The condo itself was comfortable and well furnished. We loved the sound of the river running over the rocks. Very relaxing.

Great condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two days while attending a wedding. The condo was comfortable and in a great location. Everything we needed. The description is exactly accurate. The reservation experience was very easy and the owners were very helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer.
