Property description

Enjoy breathtaking snow capped mountain views of the Mummy Range, Mount Meeker, and Twin Sisters from this beautifully decorated log home known as 'Moose Mountain Lodge'. This near new home is located on a 'very peaceful' 1.5 acre property with numerous ponderosa pines and rock outcroppings. Wildlife abounds, including elk, deer, coyotes, bobcats, and the occasional bear. The lodge boasts a floor to ceiling moss rock fireplace, log beams, vaulted wood ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows. Enjoy panoramic views of the snow capped Mummy Range from the kitchen and dining area; leather sofas in the great room; the spa; the log swing on the covered porch; and the log rockers, sofa, or log bed in the loft.

Moose Mountain is a wonderful 3 bedroom(2-queen, 1-double + sofa sleeper) 3 bath home, that offers great extras: a gas grill, wireless high speed internet, 46' HDTV, Dolby surround sound system, cable with HBO, DVD, CD, leather sofas, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher. electric range/oven and microwave oven, and a washer and dryer. A ping pong table on the lower level provides some friendly competitive action for guests. After hiking or snowshoeing adventures in Rocky Mountain, you'll really enjoy soaking in the hot tub and then curling up in front of the fire on the reclining sofas for a movie in surround sound.

Moose Mountain Lodge is furnished with antiques, log beds, quilts, books and board games, and original wildlife paintings for a true mountain lodge experience. A 400 sq. ft. covered porch, complete with log rockers and a log swing, as well as a separate deck with a 6 person hot tub provide incredible outdoor living areas. This very secluded property located in Estes Park is only minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park and downtown Estes Park. Moose Mountain offers so much, but it is truly the tranquility of the property that provides your perfect mountain get away.

We are insured and licensed as a legal vacation rental home in Estes Park, Larimer County, Colorado, #27520352-0000. We comply with the vacation rental regulations and codes of Estes Park which includes a maximum of 8 guests.

Just rockin’ in the Rockies! 03/03/2009

VRBO Bear stayed here:

Upon my arrival to this gorgeous Estes mountain log home, I was stunned by its beauty. There were many trees surrounding the home and a handy stone walkway to the stairs which led to the front door. I made my way inside to find that the interior was just as wonderful as the exterior! I was greeted by a hanging antler chandelier in the dining room and an enormous moose head looking right at me from above the fireplace in the living room. The hardwood floors and vaulted wood ceilings were simply spectacular.

Everything I needed was conveniently on the main floor: the spacious kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace and TV (complete with cable and a surround sound system), bedrooms, bathroom and even a hot tub! The loft on the upper level had a stunning view of the Rocky Mountains and I enjoyed waking up to the scenic views each and every morning.

Of course, you can’t go to Estes Park without doing a little souvenir shopping. This home was perfectly situated 5-10 minutes from the excitement of downtown.

Being the busy bear that I am, I needed to work while on vacation but it was no problem at all since the home had free wireless high speed Internet. After I got my work done, I relaxed by dipping my furry feet into the hot tub.

This was one weekend away I’ll never forget and I hope to make it back up the mountain again soon!

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Carriage Hills, Estes Park, CO, USA:
Scenery and Serenity! Wildlife and wild flowers abound. If you want a get-a-way from the hustle and noise of the city you have just found the perfect place - I doesn't get better than this! We are only minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park, yet only minutes from downtown Estes and all the shops and restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are a legally licensed vacation rental home in Estes Park. We are legally required to collect and pay sales tax to the state of Colorado. However, since our property is located just outside the city limits of Estes Park, we are not required to collect and pay the Estes Park city sales tax, only the for the state of Colorado. This will save you money for a meal at one of many restaurants.
