Property description

Davis Hill Longs Peak Cottage. Lovely, private, modern, well equipped cottage with spectacular views of Longs Peak and the Rockies. Located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of downtown Estes Park.
Enjoy modern conveniences and amenities in a historic setting. The ''Upper Cottage” has a bedroom with king-sized bed and full bathroom. There is a living room with two recliners, flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD/VCR, dining area and well equipped kitchen. The living room has a full-size pull out futon/couch and a single rollaway is available for a fourth guest.
Off the living room is a lovely private balcony with stunning views of the Continental Divide and an especially unbelievable view of Longs Peak, the only ''fourteener'' (14,259 feet) in Rocky Mountain National Park.
The cottage is within easy walking distance (two blocks) to downtown shopping, wine tasting and restaurants allowing you to leave the car and avoid the hassle of parking.
Rocky Mountain National Park is less than two miles away making this location absolutely unbeatable. The setting is private and has abundant opportunities for close up wildlife viewing of bears, elk, deer, coyotes and many other little critters.
We have a commercial grade wi-fi and a fully stocked, complementary, on site shared laundry facility available 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Mon-Fri. You will have a gas grill and access to a shared camp fire (skewers provided for your use). If there is a city or county wide fire ban in effect the gas grill can still be used., Reserved outdoor parking for two cars. No on street parking, RVs, trailers or large campers. Estes Park Shuttle runs between the Denver airport and our front door and back. We answer all calls and emails promptly! We accept Discover, Visa and MC or VRBO/Homeaway "book it now" for payment. Our calendar is fully updated. No pets or smoking (anything) in the cottage or on the deck.

What a quaint cottage with A SUPER MARVELOUS VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS! We loved sitting on the deck just looking and looking. The inside facilities were very complete-so we had a super enjoyable stay! Thanks for helping us relax and renew our energies. Perhaps we will see you again. Dan and Ardie, Ames, Iowa

July 28-August 11, 2012
We very much enjoyed our stay here in this lovely cottage. The location was perfect and the views amazing. After a long day of hiking it was so nice to come “home” to such comfortable accommodations. Favorite hikes: Easy-The Pool, Moderate-Deer Mountain Summit, Difficult-Andrews Glacier (so worth it!) We love Estes Park and we’re planning to return as often as possible. Thank you to Jim and Lois for your kindness and hospitality. Joanne and David, Holmes Beach, Florida

What a perfect home away from home. The location is perfect for trips to RMNP and town. Anybody up for a gorgeous yet challenging hike should check out Sky pond. Last night here we went to Sundeck for poached trout since Larry caught seven trout in the catch and release area today. We would definitely stay here again. Someday we would like to try it in the winter for snow shoeing. Right now the elk are bugling and this feels a little bit like heaven. Sandy and Larry

Sept 29-Oct 4 2012
It has been so lovely to have this “home” away from home. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage could not be more perfect, but the best part of it all was the delightful and accommodating Lois and Jim! Thank you ever so much, Monya P.S. The kids are already planning their return!

Oct 8-13, 2012
Wonderful stay in a relaxing and homey cottage. We loved our stay and felt rejuvenated by the mountains, clean air and bubbling streams. We hope to come again. We could not ask for a better vacation. Amy, Phil and Taras, Boston

''This was the perfect location for our first vacation with our 10 month old son. The proximity to RMNP and the downtown were excellent features of the cottage. We enjoyed breakfast at Molly B's, pizza from Poppy's, Sweet Basillico's was excellent (and very close) and the Donut Haus was a perfect sweet start to a morning. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed ours!'' A Family from Detroit.

''We don't want to leave. The snow is on the mountains and we've had a wonderful time hiking, exploring, and relaxing! We'll be back. Thanks for all the suggestions. It has made it really enjoyable. We've felt at home here.'' A Family from Austin

''Thank you for a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. What an incredible setting to wake up to each morning.'' Hendrickson Family

''The setting for your home is wonderful. My family had a fantastic time while visiting Estes Park. Your facilities were very warm and comfortable, much like home. We enjoyed the views of wildflife(bears and deer) and snowcapped mountains while sitting on the deck.'' Davis Family

Guest comment from September 2008:
''We loved the place! It was perfect! Clean, homey and quaint with everything one needs....and a great location. I would have been happy just sitting on that deck staring at the view all day. We cannot wait to come back to your place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: As youngsters both of our families spent vacations in the mountains. I worked in Estes Park one summer in high school and two in college. Because we loved Estes Park so much, Lois and I bought our first vacation home here ten years ago. After spending two summers in a condo, we decided to make the plunge into the bed and breakfast business. Being a career military couple, we knew we enjoyed entertaining people. We bought the adjacent Davis Hill Band B (Davis Hill Historic House), the oldest in Estes Park, in 2006. We are from Nebraska where Lois grew up on a farm with a big family so making breakfasts and beds was a part of life. Davis Hill B and B came with this lovely modern cottage which we recognized as a great rental asset because of the location providing gorgeous views and the design for easy living. Guests often rent the entire B&B and this cottage together for large family reunions and weddings.(When they rent the entire B&B they have have full access to the kitchen to prepare their own meals.) Managing these properties is a wonderful retirement activity for us because of the terrific people we meet and the beautiful surroundings. During the summer season we reside in an owner's suite below the cottage where we act as caretakers of the property and are available to answer questions.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
Wonderful mountain views, proximity to down town Estes Park, comfortable interior. Commercial grade wireless wi fi and complimentary laundry facilities on site.
