About Kris Troxtell

Our family lives in Austin, Texas; however we have traveled all over New Mexico and Colorado searching for the perfect summer home. Estes Park remains unspoiled by “big box” stores and boasts some of the lowest golf fees in the entire State of Colorado. Yet, the golf course is ranked among the most scenic in the country. Good restaurants abound, and you are ensured of the finest vacation of your life! We have furnished our home to meet and exceed all expectations for a rental unit. You can view golfers and a beautiful golf course at many destination golf courses, but only in Estes Park can you also see the elk, deer, and many other 'critters' as well, on that same course; and don’t ignore the beautiful mountains either! The town center is approximately 2 miles away. This property is one of three we own very close to each other. You can view our other properties at vrbo 556488 and vrbo 654289.

Kris Troxtell purchased this house in 2011

Why Kris Troxtell chose Estes Park

Being able to walk out our back door and literally hit a driver to the practice area, golf clubhouse, and starting tee provides a unique opportunity for golfers. Play golf and still enjoy all the amenities of Estes Park downtown within a couple miles, providing non-golfers with the perfect vacation experience. Even in winter months, there are a variety of activities available -- even skiing in nearby Eldora Ski Area where a lift ticket and full rentals is about $100 per day!

What makes this house unique

So many vacation homes provide only a queen bed for guests; we not only have 3 king beds, each bedroom has its own television equipped with DIRECTV. The media room is equipped with a 60' flat screen and DVR plus four recliners in addition to the bunk beds. We love sitting on the deck and watching elk on the golf course.

Excellent Vacation - Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This house was even better than we expected. Spacious, furnished well, and lots of in-kitchen items to make our stay so relaxing and easy. My family of five joined my sister's family and five and my parents - total of 12 people - almost all adult size - and we had plenty of space and even extra beds that we didn't use!

Lots of comfortable places to sit. A huge dining table with chairs. King-size beds for each couple - so comfortable! All the furnishings were top-notch. We really felt like we were in luxury accommodations.

The neighborhood was quiet, yet close to town and lots of things to do.

Kris, the owner, was very responsive and friendly and made us feel like honored guests. Such a great find!

By the end of our stay we were already contemplating another stay together at the exact same house. Loved it so much! Thanks, Kris!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this lovely home was perfect. It is spacious and beautifully furnished. The large dining room table was fantastic for our group. The big deck was perfect for enjoying the view. We saw lots of elk, a couple of coyotes and even a bobcat! The dogs loved the dog beds, the fenced in yard and the nearby dog park. Kris was so nice to work with and very accommodating and friendly. We would absolutely recommend this beautiful home and we can't wait to visit again!

Ideal for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for our family vacation. The location was very convenient to downtown Estes Park and RMNP. We enjoyed the beautiful views and watching wildlife from the large deck. The living areas and bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and nicely furnished throughout. We did a lot of cooking and really appreciated that the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, cookware and appliances, etc. We enjoyed dinners and games at the massive dining table. The owner was great to work with -- very helpful and responsive with any questions and recommendations for recreational activities, trails, etc. We hope to rent this home again on our next trip to Estes Park.

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer rental home for our family vacation this summer. We rented two of their homes for 6 adults and 7 adult children. This home was perfect and WAY beyond all our expectations. House was beautiful with gorgeous views of the golf course, mountains and lots of wildlife. It had everything you could imagine needing. We did a lot of cooking and brought things we couldn't imagine the kitchen would have, but it did! We thoroughly enjoyed the big table so we could all eat together in one house and play games. Rooms were large and nicely decorated and everything was very clean. It was minutes away from everything and yet in a quiet neighborhood when we wanted to relax from the hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding, ATVing and of course shopping. The owner was great and we couldn't imagine coming to Estes Park again and staying anywhere else (I wouldn't change a thing!)

Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal home. Very comfortable for any size family. Everything you could want or need (excluding food). The owner was very helpful with quick resolutions. The wildlife are literally all around the house. Our Great Pyranese had an enjoyable time as well, almost feeling right at home with the exception of the "bigger" animals that he had to watch. Only 5 minutes to local stores & shops. The location is away from the traffic but yet close enough to be at a restaurant, grocery store, sight seeing, hiking, etc. This house is very handicap friendly, inside & outside. Beautiful views from every window in the house. This is one of the best VRBO'S that we have experienced in Estes Park and the owners" are fantastic.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 of us) plus a non-resident couple took advantage of this beautiful property for an annual retreat we take every year. It was WONDERFUL! As stated in another review, the owner was very responsive to questions ranging from walking the golf course to an appliance concern. We had an Alaskan with us who loves big game and we were entertained by Elk the entire time there which made him a really happy as well as the rest of us as we watched the golfers dodge the elk as they grazed the golf course. The house was well equipped and the beds comfortable. Its one of the few houses we looked at that had three king size beds as well as a room with two twins and then four bunk beds in the tv room. The garage provided parking for one of our cars, and the drive had plenty of room to accommodate the other two vehicles we had plus that of the other couple each day. Should we find ourselves considering Estes Park again we will definitely look to see if this house is available. It's location on the south side of the Estes Park Golf Course is convenient to downtown yet in a very quiet subdivision, which was nice since one of the weekends we were there was Elk Fest and the population of the town had to have grown by thousands. We went, but it was nice to retreat to the house to decompress from the crowded conditions of the park and town. The close proximity to the Rocky Mountain National Park also made it a good choice. We could approach the park easily from either the south entrance (via Mary's Lake Road) or the north entrance. This house met and exceeded our expectations and needs as a family. Thanks to the owners for putting it out there!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. I'd like to add these guests were extremely thoughtful and very patient with a freezer issue. Our maid service said they had never seen a home left any cleaner; so all I can please DO come back often!
