About Jan Evans

After growing up in Iowa, a marketing career with Caterpillar took us around the world, allowing us to live outside of the US for almost 20 years. Upon retirement, there was no question where we would spend the rest of our lives.... Estes Park, which we believe is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Jan Evans purchased this house in 2008

Why Jan Evans chose Estes Park

We fell in love with Estes Park in 1969, when we honeymooned here. We bought our home here 20 years later, in 1989. Then we bought our rental 20 years later and spent several months refurbishing it the way we wanted. It is about 500 yards from our present home.

What makes this house unique

The rental home sits at 8,500 feet altitude with a clear view of the continental divide. Vacationers can enjoy whatever kind of holiday they want... solitude or a multitude of tourist activities, from horseback riding to hiking to shopping.

Best Stay in Estes Park!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly exceptional property. The views of the Continental Divide are unmatched, and with three decks it is impossible not to have every opportunity to take in these great views. Also, because the neighborhood is very private, it is very quiet. At night all we could hear were the elk bugling and coyotes howling. Inside, the property is immaculate. Very comfortable and spacious. The hosts could not be any more gracious. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in the Estes Park area.

Best Vacation Home Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I strongly recommend this home if you are considering...The owners take great care of their home, and exceptional care of their guests...meeting us upon arrival, checking in with us to make sure all was well. The pictures of the home can't do justice for the actual beauty its renters are in store for...the views are the best we've ever seen and we've stayed in several properties in or around Estes Park. From this point forward, we will only be staying at Fjellheim when visiting Estes Park area! Don't wait, book now!

Great Home with Amazing Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5

Jan & Carolyn were great hosts. The house was the right size for our family of 8 (7 adults and one child under 2), the kitchen was well stocked with initial supplies and the hosts had thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The views were incredible, the hummingbirds were wonderful to watch and the location was perfect for getting into RMNP or town.

Wonderful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

Jan and Carolyn were wonderful hosts and Fjellheim was THE BEST. They meet us when we arrived, and led us to Fjellheim. Their home is beautiful, and was very well stocked. And what a wonderful surprise; they left us a gift basket of Norwegian items to try! The view from the home was breathtaking; there are three decks for viewing, with a table and a grill on the middle deck, and hammocks on the lower deck. The hummingbirds kept us entertained as well as the deer we saw daily! It was both remote, but close to everything as well, 10 to 15 minutes from the entrance to RMNP. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Amazing Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

Jan & Carolyn were wonderful hosts. When we booked, they asked us what we were interested in doing on our trip, and, to our surprise, we soon received a large mailing including all sorts of brochures and information about Estes Park! They made arrangements to meet us on our day of arrival, and they showed us into a home that was neat, spacious, and well stocked with essentials. They also had a nice gift basket of Norwegian fare for us to sample. The view from the home is amazing, and it is very close to the YMCA of the Rockies and is only 10-15 minutes from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and downtown Estes Park. There are three decks to enjoy the view, with two hammocks on the lower deck and a grill and patio set on the main deck, along with an active hummingbird population at the feeder. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Our Fjellheim experience could not have been more enjoyable. Our hosts Jan & Carolyn were incredibly gracious and easy to work with. We made a last minute decision to arrive a day problem. We were delayed by weather that kept us from arriving until problem (Jan stayed up and met us at the front of the neighborhood to escort us up to the home.). The house was cozy and comfortable, even for our large family of eight. We found milk, eggs, bread and other basics to get us started. The home was clean and tidy. The views are 5 star and we have been blessed to travel extensively in and out of the country. You will never get tired of watching the sun rise and set over the front range of the Rockies, from any of the three beautiful decks. We had elk and mule deer inside our neighborhood daily. The value for our stay was incredible and we will look forward to visiting Fjellheim again soon. Thank you and God bless you Jan & Carolyn!
