About Ed or Aaron Acela

My Wife, Father and I purchased our home in Estes Park in October of 2000. My father had traveled to Colorado many times with his parents as a kid. When he shared the mountain experience with me for the first time I knew I would always come back. We chose Estes Park as the people here are great and the atmosphere in town is very warm and inviting. In the spring there is lush green and wildflowers. Summer offers beautiful scenery and cool mountain air. Fall abounds with golden aspen and wildlife to include elk, deer, rabbit and even the occasional bear. Winters are mild and there is even downhill skiing and snow boarding within an hours drive. With just five minutes to downtown Estes or the entrance to RMNP we knew this was home.

Ed or Aaron Acela purchased this house in 2000

Why Ed or Aaron Acela chose Front Range

Our family enjoys sitting on the deck and watching the clouds roll in over Longs Peak in the afternoon while our three daughters use grandpa’s binoculars searching the mountain sides and looking at the humming birds. The sky is so blue and the smell of pine trees in the air is relaxing while my wife enjoys a favorite book. Many evenings are spent grilling on the deck and eating as a family at the picnic table. Many nights are spent talking and telling stories next to the fire in the living room and planning the next days hike around Estes or in Rocky Mountain National Park.

What makes this house unique

A breathtaking view and herds of elk in the yard, along with the quiet secluded area and large moss rock fireplace are a few of the unique features of our cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ed,

We had a lovely time getting to know our future daughter-in-law and catching up with our sons. The view is spectacular as promised.

Still Daydreaming...

  • 5 of 5

It doesn't get any better!

The House on the Rocks was perfect for us. Everything we needed was supplied. The house was clean and we felt very comfortable. For one week, it was our special home. The mountain views are just amazing! The property had a secluded feel and was a resting place for many visitors. We had a couple herds of elk take a break in "our" yard in the evenings. We also had one visit from a small herd of deer. There were also many colorful birds (compared to what we see at home), including a few humming-birds. Lots of great pictures!

The area/RMNP is amazing. We hiked the Deer Mountain, Gem Lake and Ute trails (way up there!). We went horseback riding one day and rented ATV's one day. We enjoyed downtown Estes Park and found ourselves there just about every day. All these great places were just a short ride from the house.

We talk of returning, and when we do, we will try to secure the House on the Rocks!

Thanks for the memories!!!

Spectacular House on The Rocks

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and 4 adult children . The panoramic view of the Rocky mountains from the balcony was astonishing. There was plenty of private space for all of us.The house had all the amenities of home.My kids commented how quite and peaceful it was and the occasional herd of elk in the yard.Just minutes to the entrance of the RMNP and downtown. My family had a great time here and it was hard to leave. For the size of the property it is probably the best deal in Estes Park. We will be coming back here in the near future.

Great location and wonderful owners to work with.

  • 4 of 5

Location was easy to get to and it does have great views of The Rockies! We had an issue with locking the door, but literally within a minute of contacting Aaron he called the house to help resolve the issue! The house is dated, as can be seen in the photos, and the sofas in the living room were a bit uncomfortable to us. We only used the single bed bedroom upstairs, as it was the most convenient. Unfortunately, we had an issue keeping the bottom sheet on the bed each night. All the appliances worked well and the gas grill made great steaks. It's on a quiet road, as we only met one car and that was as we were leaving. Definitely, the best thing is its location. A few minutes from town and to Beaver Meadows entrance to RMNP!

Glad you enjoyed your stay and the view. Thank you for choosing to stay at House on the Rocks in Estes Park. We appreciate that you took such great care of our home while you were there and are welcome back anytime. Sincerely, Aaron, Heidi and Ed

Extremely Good Value for Price

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed. Lots of space. Older 1970's property is excellent value for price. Excellent location for RMNP. Only negatives that might influence a repeat visit are condition of carpet throughout and quality of mattresses (very firm, below hotel quality).

Owner's Response: Thank your feedback and appreciate you staying with us. The carpet is scheduled to be cleaned two weeks from today. The mattress in the upstairs master was replaced 4 years ago and the two queens in the other upstairs bedroom were replace this year Spring of 2016.

Vacation in the Rockies

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time, the rental was perfect for our family of 12, Granddad, kids & grandkids. The view was fantastic, especially from the large deck. The rental offered everything we needed and very comfortable. The location was perfect, close to all activities but not too close. We highly recommend this property!
