Stunning 4-br Home on a secluded 2.5 acres of river by Estes Park & Allenspark
About kelly degnan
We are a family of 4 (plus puppy!) that bought and are now sharing our dream mountain property! We live down the road in Boulder and enjoy the retreat of the Mountain House with family and friends often. While Boulder life involves elementary and middle school, work, sports, schedules and general business, the Mountain house is a much needed respite from the noise! Mom (Kelly) is an artist, Dad (Don) is a recovering lawyer now in the restaurant industry, and kiddos (P & R) are simply awesome.

Why kelly degnan chose Lyons
You'll know from the minute you get there! The 2.5 acres of riverfront give a constant backdrop of soothing, bubbling happiness to play around on, or sit and sip by. There's a large field in the front with new volleyball posts for your selection of games. There are 2 large decks to hang, grill and lounge on. Then...there's the 4 bedroom house (including bunk room and pool table lounge) that we've meticulously redone to give the right sense of cabin chic!
What makes this House unique
Hellooo tipi! As a birthday surprise, my husband installed a gorgeous tipi, unveiled 2 summers ago by a crew of our friends to my delighted squeals! So in the summer, you now have an outdoor sleeping/lounging/storytelling/pretend-you-live-in-a-tipi option in an aspen grove by the river!

Loved the property. We had 6 adults and 1 infant in our group so the downstairs space worked perfect for privacy for all. Everyone said their beds were comfortable, which has been a problem with other places. Absolutely loved having the stream running through the yard, it is so peaceful! Wonderful place for our family vacation!
House, wilderness, location, peace and quiet. 5 stars on all

Beautiful House on beautiful river
This is a great house in a perfect setting. Roomy, comfortable, beautiful and perfect for a group. Take note! There is wildlife here so be aware (last Friday morning, there was a mountain lion on the porch who considered walking in our open patio door, a bear tried to get in the trash two nights before that. But. That's exactly why we loved it. It's a bit remote, but not too much, and it's lovely and quiet, except for the lovely sounds of the river. Keep your cars gassed up - you're not within a mile or two of fuel, food, etc. My daughter came very close to running out of gas on her way to Lyons. Plan accordingly since you will be driving to most if not all activities. Also, be organized and make sure you have your groceries when you get there. You really don't know what the house will have on stock. The Lyons market is absolutely nice but very small. No matter what, it's fairly inconvenient to go to the grocery store for a gallon of milk. Great news, you can be more than happy to go nowhere when you're at this house. Sit by the beautiful river in the chairs or hammock, sit on the deck with it's comfy couches, look at the mountain, look out the windows, read and relax. You'd be plenty lucky to do nothing here but breathe in the air and take in the beauty. The house is close to Boulder, (35mins?) where there are great restaurants, shopping, and sites; it's close to Lyons which is a pleasant but small town, and close to Estes Park which is wonderful but a typical old-school tourist town. Estes is still a not-to-be-missed for us, in spite of that tourist thing. Additional note: lots of construction on 7 highway, be aware, we had a couple of long waits. We recommend Meeker Park Stables (we've ridden there for years), boat/canoe/paddelboarding on Lake Estes, pies from Colorado Cherry Company, lunch or dinner at Chautauqua Dining Hall in Boulder, eating at Lyons Fork, dinner or drinks at Rock Inn in Estes, and of course it should go without saying, do not miss hiking or taking a picnic in magnificent Rocky Mountain National Park in all its glory. And I do mean glory. (The house is "close" to WildBasin entrance.)Let's just say, I wish I was there now, not at work, listening to the river and enjoying the soft afternoon rain and crisp air.
Beautiful Mountain Getaway
This is an excellent property in a fabulous setting. We could hear the mountain stream in every room. The house was just perfect for our group of 5 adults and 4 teens.
