**We manage our own rentals at AspenHaus Lodge and are not associated with Aspen Brook Vacation Homes** Mark and Sue, Owners
AspenHaus Lodge is perfectly situated overlooking the Big Thompson River, with snow-cap views of the continental divide while backing up to Giant Track Mountain for the ultimate in end-of-road privacy. From our home it is just a short walk into the Rocky Mountain National Park, 1/2 mile to the YMCA of the Rockies, 2 miles to the Beaver Meadows entrance of RMNP and 3.5 miles to the town center of Estes Park. Or simply leave your car at our home and take the FREE Estes Park Summer shuttle from a stop located within 1/4 mile of AspenHaus Lodge!!
The main level great room has a spectacular floor-to-30 ft. ceiling river rock gas fireplace which is flanked by a surround sound audio visual system (with 2 flat screens); simply the ideal family gathering place with its adjoining newly renovated fully equipped barnwood kitchen and dining room area.
From the great room you can step out to the fantastic wrap-around deck to enjoy excellent mountain views along with the sights and sounds of the Big Thompson River... or take it all in from the 6-person hot tub or while cooking dinner on the Weber gas grill!
The cozy master bedroom has a double-sided gas fireplace shared with a jetted tub en suite. Open the deck doors and let the sounds of the Big Thompson lull you to sleep or step out to take in the perfectly clear Colorado sky where you might want to reach out to grab a star!
The second level of AspenHaus has two bedrooms (a king-sized bed in each), 2 private bathrooms and an amazing open loft area with picture windows framing the river, pine forest and snow-cap views. No artwork needed on these walls!
A second family room is located in the lower level where you can walk-out to meet wild turkeys and spot other wild life coming up the driveway! Or maybe just sit back and relax on the flagstone patio while enjoy a good book and catching a mesmerizing bird's eye view of the Big Thompson River! The bunk room with a full bath is also located on this level.
A one car attached garage space (with a spare refrigerator) comes with this rental. We also have a main floor laundry room.
As our guest you will enjoy access to shared common fishing, picnic and playground areas along the Big Thompson river.
From the doorsteps of AspenHaus enjoy a short woodsy walk along the Big Thompson River and emerge to expansive views of Moraine Park. Visit the museum, catch the shuttle to other RMNP destinations or continue your hike on to Cub Lake where you will have extraordinary opportunities to view herds of elk along the way.
Need we go on... our family thinks that AspenHaus Lodge is perfect in every way... not just another vacation rental but our perfect mountain home!
Note- No weddings, rehearsal dinners, group events, etc.

About Mark and Sue Werder
We have always wanted to "work where we live versus live where we work"....so in 2010 we took a chance and started our boutique vacation rental service business (Good Neighbor Vacation Rentals, LLC) in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado. In addition to operating our own vacation rentals, we are a boutique service provider to like-minded vacation rental homeowners. As travelers ourselves, we enjoy a high-quality travel/vacation experience; and in that regard, quality & customer service are at the top of our product offering...reflected in what our guests have to say (please check-out the reviews for all of our properties!!). "It's not just a transaction...for us it's our passion!" We are also diehard fans of the St. Louis Cardinals & Blues, Buffalo Bills & Sabres, world cup soccer, Pittsburgh Penguins (some of us!), VT Hokies and the Rocky Mountains!
Mark and Sue Werder purchased this House in 2010
Why Mark and Sue Werder chose Aspen Brook
We have spent many of our summer vacations visiting national parks and the RMNP is our hands-down favorite! After 2 years of searching for a home in Estes Park we knew that this was the perfect one for us!
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location...walk directly into the RMNP or access the shuttle bus by foot to avoid traffic and delays! We have views of both the Big Thompson River AND the Continenal Divide...to have one is special to have both is extra special and rare!

Better than we could have ever imagined!
Sue and her husband have an amazing home ,were extremely welcoming, and helpful! We are already hoping and planning to come back after Christmas. It’s no wonder this cabin is so well reviewed! Believe what you read!
Thank you for the 5 star review! We enjoyed having your family stay at our home and will look forward to your return!! Mark and Sue, Owners
Impeccable AND Breathtaking
This rental home was impeccably clean and highly maintained. The owners corresponded with us clearly with entry details and suggestions before we arrived, and provided the best customer service for not only staying there but suggestions for the area as well. The home comfortably housed 8 adults, the hottub was clean, and we were serviced immediately when the snow fell overnight with plowing and shoveling. It was a beautiful winter getaway, and so close to the RMNP! We all highly recommend this property, and thank the owners for the hospitality.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such an nice review for our home! We especially appreciate your having called-out the "impecably clean" part, as our housekeeping crew takes great pride in that....I will be sure to pass on your having noticed. Thanks again and best!! Mark and Sue, Owners
Beautiful home, spectacular part of the world
The home was just as described, or even better. It was perfect for our family get together! Mark and Sue were great. We had only one minor issue and they took care of it promptly, checked on us, recommended restaurants etc. Couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful.
We would definitely go back, and hope it’s soon!
Thank You again
Thank you so much for the 5 star review of AspenHaus!! We appreciate that you would take the time to tell others about your family's positive experience. We will look forward to your return, thanks again!! Mark and Sue, Owners PS Mark enjoyed meeting everyone!
Perfect Family Gathering
Our extended family gathered at AspenHaus Lodge for Christmas this year and it could not have been a more perfect property! Sue and Mark decorated the entire home with a gorgeous tree, mantle garland and perfect holiday touches throughout! They were beyond helpful in getting us oriented to the area and making suggestions for Christmas eve dinner and family friendly snow activities in the area. The space was perfect for our 2 families with kids plus grandparents. Everyone had their own space with gorgeous great room and fireplace to prepare meals and eat together. I can't imagine a better spot in Estes for a family Christmas! Hoping to be back in the summer sometime to explore more of RMNP!
We were very happy to hear that your family enjoyed Christmas at AspenHaus Lodge; and we loved seeing the photo of your little ones around the tree....thank you!! And thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to write a 5 star review for us!! All seasons are beautiful in Estes Park, we will look forward to your Summer visit!! Mark and Sue, Owners
Perfect house for gathering, cooking and hiking!
The owners were so helpful and made sure our family holiday was a success. We were all comfortable and enjoyed the nearby trails and restaurants. We spent more time at the house than years past at other houses just because it was so cozy - hot tub, card games and easy cooking was the icing on the trip.
Thank you so much for reviewing AspenHaus! We are looking forward to your familiy's 2018 return!! Mark and Sue, Owners
Fantastic mountain atmosphere
This large, upscale and like-new house on Aspen Brook is at the end of a long private driveway. The views from the living area are stunning. The massive fireplace and carefully chosen furniture all fit so well with the mountain theme. The spacious rooms and bathrooms are all very well-equipped, with many thoughtful touches, including games, books, a land-line phone, spices, baggies, napkins, portable crib, wooden high chair, laundry soap, extra towels, extra toilet paper, tissues, etc. The kitchen is a dream; there is plenty of room to store your purchased food. The deck is expansive. Sue could not be more helpful. She emailed lots of information about Estes Park activities, shopping, and restaurants before our stay, so it was easy to make plans. We liked Duraven Inn and Twin Owls Steakhouse. The house easily fit 8 adults and 2 children.
We enjoyed meeting you both! We appreciate your taking the time to write such a kind and thoughtful review, thank you!! Mark and Sue, Owners
