Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

One of our best vacation rentals we have stayed in! We vacationed with our whole family (11 of us) and we had plenty of room, the beds were all comfortable and the house was perfect.

We loved being right on the river and had huge elk literally feet from the front and back patio.

Loved loved our entire trip!

The house is beautiful with every modern convenience. We spent Thanksgiving there and had every utensil and dish we needed. There was more than enough room for the ten of us, and we even came home with clean clothes thanks to the washer and dryer! Do not hesitate to book this home; you’ll be more than satisfied with your stay.

Beautiful river location

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini family reunion with our family who lives in CO. They all came up to Estes. Staying In the house we had 10 adulta and 1 child. Other family came for a day trip to see the family and hike in the National Forrest.

The house was perfect for our group. Some used the hot tub, played pool, used the chess board, and fished every day!

The kitchen is fantastic! We cooked big meals and also grilled out.

This house was perfect for our group! Perfect distance to town, it fit our group for perfectly for rooms and space. Just a wonderful experience!!

And, there isn't enough to be said about being right on the river!! WONDERFUL!!

Perfect Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful time staying at this BEAUTIFUL home on the Big Thompson River! The home is spacious and we had more than enough room for three families. The master bedroom has windows across the wall facing the river! You can relax, read a book, or just watch the hummingbirds swarm the feeder outside the window. Woke up one morning and there were three deer standing in the middle of the stream. The balcony is a great place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is a nice size table with plenty of chairs. The kitchen has EVERYTHING that you could possibly need to prepare a nice dinner. The house is clean and well maintained. We built fires in the fireplace several times and it was so nice -:) My grandchildren ages 6, 9 & 10 enjoyed the river and we caught several trout right behind the house. We loved that Estes Park was so close so we could easily run into town for a scoop of ice cream or delicious taffy. The house is perfectly located for easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park where we saw many elk, moose, & deer. My son and his wife saw a black bear between the house and the short drive in to town. I would highly recommend that this lovely home to anyone. We'll definitely return!!

Pictures did not do justice to the property

  • 5 of 5

This home was great. In perfect shape upon arrival. The pictures did not do it justice. The river was relaxing and enjoyable from the deck, family room and master bedroom. Nicely located with easy access to Rocky Mountain national park. Easy access to Estes Park and a smaller convenience store close by. Home is set up nicely for different groups to have their own space, night owls and early birds easily coexisted. We had eleven adults and never once felt crowded in. Ponderosa realty was great to work with and very responsive to one minor issue we had over a busy 4th of July weekend. Highly recommend this property.
