About the property

Never fight for parking to enjoy Estes Park! Location, location, location!

There are not many rentals closer to the city center than this beautiful, centrally located 3-bedroom unit on the edge of downtown Estes Park (Estes Park Vacation License Permit #3076). Location, location, location! You can't go wrong with this gorgeous unit nestled in pine trees on the side of Prospect Mountain with views from the front patio to Lumpy Ridge. It's half a block from the edge of downtown & a 5 min drive to the main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Don't fight for parking and enjoy Estes year round!

There's a lot to love about this unit -- recent updates include luxurious memory foam mattress toppers and a smart TV loaded with Netflix, Sling and Amazon Prime -- but my favorite thing is its utterly perfect location. If you stay here, you can leave your car behind and walk to pretty much everywhere in downtown Estes Park along the banks of the scenic Big Thompson River. This wonderful rental is not smack dab in the middle of downtown; instead, it's a half block away from the edge, and three blocks away from the center. That means you get all the benefit of being downtown without the noise and congestion.

This is a perfect rental unit for families. The kids walk to some of the nearby attractions (mini golf, big slide, adventure park, go carts) while the adults can relax in the cozy space. And the entrance to the National Park is a 5 minute drive. To get there, you avoid almost all of the crazy Estes Park traffic!

Once you walk into this warm vacation rental, you're greeted with a rustic, spacious living room with cozy chairs and a large leather couch, gas fireplace, and beautiful pine furnishings. The open floor plan leads to a modern kitchen that's fully equipped so you can cook your own meals. You'll have your own fridge, oven, and pots/pans/plates/dishes.

Attached to the living room is a large master bedroom suite with comfortable king size bed, lots of closet space and a great bathroom. Adjacent to the kitchen is a second full sized bathroom, a cozy and very quiet bedroom with a queen bed, and a third bedroom with two twin beds. You'll also have access to a washer/dryer in a closet next to the second bathroom.

This is a fully furnished, private space that you have complete access to, along with private parking. It includes cable television and super fast WiFi as well.

A few things I love about this unit: first, the location. It's really close to down, so you can walk pretty much anywhere and leave your car at the unit and avoid fighting for parking, which can be a hassle in the summertime.

Some of my favorite restaurants in town are easily accessible within a block or two: China Garden, Rock Cut Brewery, the Donut Haus, and Sweet Basilico (Italian -- great pizzas!). You're also right next to the big Estes Park slide and some fun family entertainment options (you can walk to a go-cart track and an adventure ropes course).

About Nathan Welton

I'm a full time wedding and portrait photographer based in the high mountains of Estes Park. I've been living here for more than a decade now, and I'm still discovering little secrets about this slice of paradise. I have hosted so many cool people and I've even shot some of their family portraits, engagement sessions, and surprise proposals when they come through my beautiful town. To learn more about me and see my work, search the net for "dreamtime images estes park"

Why Nathan Welton chose Estes Park

This is a wonderful property with one of the best locations in town! It's set along a quiet road about a half a block from the edge of downtown Estes Park. You can park here and walk to shops, restaurants and attractions in the city, yet you don't have to fight with traffic or parking. It's also 5 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park, and it's located on a road that allows you to bypass the city traffic.

Cozy, comfy, close to town

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your place in Estes Park with us. It was the perfect size for 3 friends to call home base during a visit to hike RMNP and get in a little shopping. It is close to town for groceries, dining, shopping, yet quiet and still with easy access to the highway. Only things we would recommend are extra bath linens and some more kitchen basics (spatulas, cookware, paper towel, etc.) so we could cook at home and enjoy eating in (at the cool rustic table!). Thank you from Michigan!

Spacious condo close to town

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely 3 bed, 2 bath condo in a quiet location, within a couple minutes of town. Plenty of space for your family with a full kitchen, separate dining, and living room. Also had the convenience of a washer and dryer in the unit. First floor so easily accessible and very quiet neighbors. Owner was very easy to work with. Would love to stay again!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, close to town, well maintained and very good features. The only thing i would change is the television set up. I couldn't get live news with the ROKU set up. ROKU had nice features it just didn't have live news, at least I couldn't figure out how to get live news. Other then the TV issue the condo with spacious and confrontable.

Owner's Response: Hi Mark, thanks for your visit! Just wanted to point out to other guests in the future that you can indeed get live news on the TV. There's actually quite a variety of news! Please give a shout to your host next time you're on a trip -- I'm sure they would love to help!!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Great place. Comfortable. Only negative comment was the cleaning folks forgot towels in one room but we had enough from the other room to make it work. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks for your feedback. We do leave towels all over the unit for people to use and ensure there are more than enough -- some are in bedrooms, others are in bathrooms, etc.
