Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, sleeps 6 adults (Reg # 3248)

From one of our guests (Somerset, England):

'We spent a fantastic week in this home. The house itself is excellent in terms of location, setting, decor and equipment with many thoughtful touches that added to the overall quality of our stay. The bedrooms are spacious, the den is excellent for children wanting their own space and the lounge and dining room make for a relaxed setting for a holiday. The house setting is picturesque whilst it is well located in relation to Estes Park...I wholeheartedly commend this home to anyone wishing to visit Colorado.'

The AlpineHaus is situated in the quiet, gated Blue Spruce Village Victorian community that has the Big Thompson River running through it and is ¼ mile outside the Estes Park city limits. The Rocky Mountain National Park Beaver Meadows Visitor Center and Park Headquarters are two miles from our vacation home and it is just a five minute drive to downtown Estes. The AlpineHaus is only ¼ mile from the original early 1900's entrance to the Park and a trailhead that leads to the Bear Lake/Moraine Park area, on the edge of the YMCA of the Rockies Conference and Activity Center.

Built in 2002, our three-level townhome has 2200 square feet of living space. The main level offers a greatroom with a stone fireplace (gas burning) and opens to a large deck with a picnic table and gas grill. Oak wainscoting and large windows adorn the greatroom and separate dining area with a large dining table. The fully-equipped kitchen and dining area have wood floors adding to the warmth and charm of this beautiful home. The main level greatroom also has a large LCD TV with a DVD player. Sit on the large deck to relax and view the elk, an occasional bear and other wildlife!

The upper level has three large bedrooms and a loft area with a game/puzzle table. The master bedroom has a king-size pine log bed and furnishings with a large bay window and jetted whirlpool tub in its private bathroom. The second bedroom also has a pine log queen bed and furnishings, two dormered windows and a private entrance to the second full bath (which also opens to the loft/hall area to share with the third bedroom). The third bedroom has a queen sized bed and a twin sized bed and dormered windows - perfect for a third couple or children.

The walkout lower level has a recreation room great for kids young and old with a LCD TV, DVD/VCR, video games, and patio area.

Walk fifty yards to the Big Thompson River for fly-fishing and relaxation. While our home is not directly on the river, the river runs through our private community and all owners and guests have access to common areas with picnic tables and seating areas.

Free Internet access via our broadband wireless connection (bring your laptop with wireless card if you need to check in at work occasionally or just want to surf the Net for various events going on in Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park while on vacation). Or perhaps you'll want to check the weather forecast prior to departing for a climb up Long's Peak!

The following are just a few more of the comments from our guest registry:

“It was great to come ‘home’ to this beautiful home each day. We travel the mountains every summer, and this is the best place we have ever stayed at!”

“One of the nicest places we have ever stayed in! You have a lovely home.”

'What a surprise to walk in your beautiful home!! Booking it on the internet was a bit scary but as soon as the door was opened, you could feel the warmth! A gorgeous setting and close to shopping, hiking and sightseeing. Can't wait to come back again!'

“We had a lot of wildlife here with a bear the first morning, deer and a fawn, beautiful birds…”

**Sorry, pets are not allowed and this is a no smoking residence**

                                                                    Wonderful Home

                                                                    Tonya D.

                                                                    We had a wonderful stay at Conrad and Kathy's home. It had great space for our family to spread out and it was very much a home that we were comfortable in from the fully stocked kitchen and the spacious bedrooms down to the books on the shelves, and Netflix for the kids. The old school arcade machine was also a hit with kids and adults alike. We loved that it was close to RMNP, as well as town. This would be a property that we would stay in again in a heartbeat. Thanks for being such gracious hosts Conrad and Kathy!

                                                                    Peaceful get away

                                                                    Right away you feel at home. The house is comfortable and well layed out. We brought dvd's, books, and games and there was no need. This house has everything needed. We enjoyed the river, fishing, and all the wildlife. There was a herd of elk roaming the property, along with turkeys, chipmunks, butterflies, and birds. The property is close enough to town to get there in minutes, but far Enough away to have the peaceful sounds of the river instead of cars. The neighbors in the community were very friendly and helpful. Our group ranged in age from 5 years to 65 year. Everyone was comfortable and had a great time.

                                                                    Loved the house

                                                                    Donald F.

                                                                    We very much enjoyed staying at this location - everything was clean and well maintained, enjoyed the classic video game console in the lowest level. Our only regret was that we had to change our schedule due to a funeral and shorten our visit, the hosts were incredibly accommodating in helping us out due to the forced change. Thanks very much for a wonderful vacation and we look forward to coming back again, for a longer stay!

                                                                    Nice house.

                                                                    Linda G.
