My quirky, cozy little home (1,500 sq ft)is sitting on a knoll over looking Mary’s Lake in Estes Park, CO. It is available for your Rocky Mountain getaway.

Only four miles from all the events and shopping of down town Estes. Available for Memorial Day and Labor Day Craft Shows, Rooftop Rodeo, Scandinavian Festival, Scottish/Irish Festival, Elkfest, on and on.... The Cottage is just a 5 minute drive to the south entrance of Rocky Mountain State Park for all the hiking, fishing and outdoor activities you can think of. You’ll be seeing elk everyday and even get to pet one if you like.

There are 22 feet of floor to ceiling windows for a clear view of glorious mountain ranges. The beautiful, glistening Mary’s Lake can be seen from this bright, high ceiling living room. You can walk down the hill to the lake for picnicing, fishing for trout and wading. Wild elk and deer are known to walk right up to those windows to munch the grasses.

The wrap around deck is great for sipping your morning coffee in a beautiful setting and perfect for sitting out at night under the moon and stars – The stars seem so close you might think you can reach out and touch them.

The kitchen is at your disposal and a grill outside is perfect for the barbeque chef. Three comfortable bedrooms give plenty of room for sleeping. There is a queen pillowtop bed in the master bedroom with 50"flatscreen TV. There is a pillow top full bed in the second bedroom and the third bedroom has a full bed with a comfort topper. A gueen Aero bed is available. There is a 60" flatscreen TV in the living room with Direct TV and plenty of DVD movies to watch. Wireless internet is available for those who can't leave the computer home.

Your small doggies are welcome, too! So, bring the 'whole' family! Just let me know who's coming. There's plenty of empty space outside for walking and playing with your doggies.


Keywords: Cozy, Homey, Comfortable, Convenient Location, Close to town, Close to Rocky Mountain National Park, Close to hiking, close to Mary's Lake for fishing, picnicking, wading.

Great location and views!!!

  • 4 of 5

It snowed on us this time, lots of windows make for beautiful views!! The dryer wasn’t working this time but Host offered to come pick up our clothes and dry them for us! Only thing to make it cozier would be if the fireplace was working and more comfy chairs to gather around it in! For all you sports fans, My husband missed having the sports channel to watched football, so we streamed it live on my computer because there is a smart TV to plug it into!! Where there is a will, there’s a way!! Yay!!! We come every year to Estes, love it here💜?💜?💜?

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything that we needed. The master wing was beautiful as the bathroom was recently renovated. We also had a door to the deck that wrapped around the house. The view from the front windows was breath taking. We had a bull elk out front the morning that we were leaving. It was an easy trip into Estes Park. We would love to go back someday.

Cozy cottage with great porch

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay in Estes Park. The house was comfortable and we loved sitting on the porch as much as we could. Jane was a great host and made us feel right at home. We definitely want to come back soon.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our son, his wife and dog, Munk spent Labor Day weekend at the Valley Cottage. The pictures of the Estes Valley Cottage are quite nice, but do not quite capture how perfect it is. This is the perfect place to come back to after a few hours of hiking.

The nice deck wraps around 3/4s of the house. A nice dinning area, an area to view Mary's lake with its interesting water show and a little area to curl up and read. The three bedrooms are quite comfortable and I had some bathroom envy over the master bath. The cottage could not have been cleaner and Jane, its owner, is wonderful to work with. She stopped by on our first day to apologize for the washing machine was not working. She took our comfort and satisfaction very seriously. Thank you, Jane.

Great Mountain & Lake View Cottage wit Close Proximity to Estes and RMNP

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, great views, great indoor/outdoor sitting areas and close proximity to Estes Park and RMNP. The décor on the inside makes the house cozy and warm. This property receives high marks and highly recommend if staying in Estes Park.

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family totally enjoyed staying at this delightful cottage. Jane has gone to a lot of effort to make this a wonderful experience for her guests. She was great with communication throughout the process, answering questions promptly and clearly. We were close to everything: Estes Park, YMCA of the Rockies, and Rocky Mt NP. The home was spotlessly clean and well-maintained with all kinds of extras in the pantry and kitchen area. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and ate breakfasts out on the sunny deck. This home accommodated 3 adult couples and a 7-year-old with no problems. We actually created a little sleeping pallet for the child in the utility room and she thought it was great to have her own cozy space. We've stayed in other home rentals and this was definitely the nicest. The price was reasonable for such a high demand area.
