About Jolene & Jim

Jim and Jolene are retired from Corporate America. Jolene now works with nonprofits and is a life coach putting her years of business experience to work to assist helping others be at their best. Jim (originally from upstate New York) loves the Colorado sunshine and enjoys keeping up with the latest IT technology, working in the yard, and walking our two rat terriers.

Jolene & Jim purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jolene & Jim chose Estes Park

Jolene's dream was to have a vacation property in Estes Park. We live just a little over an hour from Estes, We love to hike, golf, bike, participate in the Estes Park festivities and relax on the deck taking in the beauty and nature that surrounds us. Jim's favorite vacation is near the beach so we do travel to Sanibel or Hilton Head once a year to satisfy his need for the hot weather and beach.

What makes this condo unique

The views are magnificent. Easy access to hiking and climbing trails. We are far enough from downtown Estes area that you'll feel secluded but with an easy 1 mile walk you can be downtown to immerse yourself in the latest festivals, tours, events, golfing and enjoying the great outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for inquiring. We did enjoy your condo very much. It was well equipped and nicely furnished and it was nice to know that the ice cubes were fresh. Your guest information book was great, explaining how everything worked and your basket with maps and local information did help us out. Being former resort condo owners ourselves (Copper Mountain) we can't think of anything else that you really need to furnish. We will recommend it to any friends that are going to Estes. Your pre-registration information sheets were very precise and thorough.

Thanks for your great hospitality.

Rocky Mountain Views from this great Estes Park 2 bedroom Condo!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Oct 26, 2010

The drive up to Estes Park is one of the best drives in Colorado…and this drive was no different. Walking up the steps to the condo, we could look over our shoulders and see the amazing mountain views and clear blue skies. The view from the deck is magnificent and a perfect place to spend the morning, drinking coffee! The 2 bedrooms were comfortable and were nicely decorated. The bathrooms were fully stocked with plenty of towels. Every amenity was covered, from matches to coffee to plenty of dishware. If I needed something, I could find it! There are menus and tourist recommendations so you can make a choice as to what you want to do. In case you want to check your email, the Wi-fi is really fast and works great! The condo is clean, quiet, comfortable and very accessible. Making my way through town and up the road to the house, I knew that this condo was perfectly located. The historic Stanley Hotel is less than a 2-minute drive away. The condo is close to Safeway and the Estes Park visitor center. Rocky Mountain National Park is about a 5-minute drive to the entrance, where there are many hiking trails to choose from! The trail I hiked was only 20 minutes from the condo. Drink plenty of water, get rest and enjoy your time here. I will be back! The VRBO Bear

Perfect Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that we stayed at this lovely 2 bedroom chalet. The location is perfect as it is close to Estes Park yet at the same time it is in a private, quiet area overlooking the mountains. It is clean and comfortable with plenty of space, fully furnished kitchen, wifi, laundry facilities and outdoor grill. The owners are easily available. If we return to Estes Park, this chalet will be our number one choice.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my mom and I to stay during New Years. It is only a few minutes away from Downtown Estes Park, but it feels so quiet and secluded. Since it was a little further away from the shops and everything, you have an AMAZING view of the mountains. We would look out and just stare, because it was such a beautiful view that it almost looked fake. The house was in wonderful condition and had everything you would need to cook your meals. Check-in was very easy and straight forward, especially with the keyless entrance. My mom is hoping to come back to visit in June and said she has to stay here again! Thank you so much for letting us borrow your beautiful Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

Slept 5 over Thanksgiving Holiday. Very comfortable. Nice kitchen where we prepared several meals. Excellent instructions from owners made the stay fun and easy. Nice location, close to center of town, but away from crowds and hustle bustle. Saw many elk and deer on property. Great view of mountains from large picture window!
