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.

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 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.
