About Dean

We've lived in Estes Park for 20 years and love it! We've both worked on behalf of Rocky Mountain National Park and believe it to be a very special place.

Dean purchased this House in 2004

Why Dean chose Venner Ranch Estates

Estes Park is a great vacation destination - for the stunning scenery and hiking found in Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as for the unique experience of the town of Estes Park, where families enjoy the unique shops, restaurants and area attractions.

What makes this House unique

Views, Views and then some more Continental Divide Views. This Home is unique even to Estes Park with its location on a ridge half way up Prospect Mountain. Elk, deer, bobcat, coyote and bear frequent the area. Enjoy all of this while relaxing in the hot tub on the private deck. At the Overlook House, you are minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as the town of Estes Park.

                                                              Fantastic views and convenient location

                                                              We highly recommend the Overlook House in Estes Park. The views are absolutely amazing, and the house is comfortable and spacious. The location is remote enough to give you privacy, and yet just minutes from downtown Estes Park and convenient to Rocky Mountain National Park and Eldora Ski Resort. We suggest going to the Estes Park Mountain Shop to rent any outdoor gear you need. Their prices are very reasonable, and they are very helpful. Renting microspikes for our March hike in Rocky Mountain National Park made that day just perfect -- well worth the $7 per pair. Eldora is a great ski resort -- the hour drive there was easy with little or no traffic, and the lift lines were so short. We would ski Eldora again. Overlook owner Dean was so nice before and during our stay. We would definitely visit again.

                                                              Awesome Winter Get Away!!!

                                                              The Overlook House was just perfect for our family of 5 from Ohio. We absolutely love hiking in winter and exploring. After a long day of hiking, crosscountry skiing, or sledding in RMNP, we would head back to the overlook house for amazing views and the HOTTUB!!!! Rocky Mountain National Park was really fun in Winter - we stayed for 6 days and were never bored. The house had lots of puzzles, games and fun for our family of older kids. We also skied in Eldora, about an hour away, very nice and not too commercial or crowded. Dean was great and very helpful and reachable as needed. Just a terrific vacation. Can't say enough good things about it - but really the pictures don't do the view justice. Never really seen anything like it in Ohio :) Thanks Dean for a great place to spend our holiday 2017.

                                                              This gorgeous home is located off the beaten path with views to take your breath away. It’s location is close to entrance of park and a short drive to town. The owner is very fast to address any needs. Thanks Dean for your fast response. Perfect place for friends, family to enjoy. Well equipped kitchen.

                                                              The Overlook House is a great place to stay for exploring RMNP. Close enough to Estes Park for the essentials, but far enough away for a peaceful place to rest after hiking. We enjoyed the stunning views from every window and the deck, and were treated to gorgeous sunrises with snow-capped peaks in late September. The house is comfortable and well appointed. Dean was very responsive to my questions and provided detailed instructions for the house. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

                                                              Stunning view

                                                              Two thumbs up for this house! Amazing view from the house and deck. Still very close to all the amenities of Estes Park and the entrance to RMNP. The house was very clean and everything worked properly, very well equipped kitchen. We loved the hot tub at night with views of the Milky Way!

                                                              Perfect respite in the mountains!!

                                                              After a few days in Denver on business, the Overlook House was the perfect setting for a tranquil time relaxing and exploring the Rocky Mountain National Park. On step into the great room with panoramic views of the Rockies, and you see where the name came from. With so many decks and windows, the spectaculat views of the mountains are always on dislay at the Overlook House. As an added bonus, it is in a "Dark Sky" community - so the night sky lit up with millions of stars! Sipping wine in the Hot Tub was the perfect way to end a day of hiking in the Rockies. I look forward to returning to RMNP and the Overlook House!
