This home is 2.9 miles from the center of Estes Park. Music, Art and festivals along with great shopping and dining are minutes away. The entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is 2.5 miles with its Hiking, wildlife, and sight seeing.
Mary's lake shore is about 1200 feet away. Mary's Lake Campground is about 2500 feet, and Mary's Lake Lodge about a mile by car around the south side of the lake. Mary's Lake Lodge has excellent dining.
We are on over an acre in an area where most properties are an acre or more. Our neighbors are mostly hidden from view by the trees and rock outcroppings.
It is very private, but not remote.
Bureau of Land Management public land is four hundred feet from our driveway. You can hike and explore for miles on Rams Horn Mountain and Giant Track Mountain.
Estes Park's 18 hole Golf course clubhouse is three miles from our driveway. The nine hole course is about four and a half miles away.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We live an hour away in Fort Collins. We have vacationed all over and often rented homes to stay in, and those were our best vacation memories.
Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
It's all about the view! This area of the Rockies is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and one of the few very beautiful locations that has year-round activities. The location and convenience are a nice bonus, but the views were the main consideration in choosing this property.Every room, every window in this house has a great view. We looked for years at Estes Park and Grand lake for a second home that would be an investment and eventually a retirement home for us. We saw lots of properties with no nice view, or tiny windows, or neighbors too close,too small,or too 'inconvenient' to get to. This home is in a perfect, very quiet spot. Our neighbors are few, they are not close by, and do not spoil the view. Getting to the Park, the restaurants, and the shopping are easy from this location. On Summer weekends when the town is jammed with tourists, it is easy to bypass the traffic by using Peak View and Riverside drive. We love to go hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park, and access to the park is quick and easy from this location. The drive to the Park from our property does not go through town and traffic is never an issue even on Summer weekends.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have gone a bit overboard with guest amenities. No vacation home has more entertainment options. The home theater with video games and movies will occupy the kids down stairs while the adults enjoy the view and 50 inch plasma tv upstairs.
