About the property

Private Home, Quiet Location, Sleeps 8

Welcome to 'Elk Ridge Lodge' - a name given to this warm, spacious and beautifully furnished, four bedroom, three bath privately owned home in a quiet location with easy access on the east side of Prospect Mountain. Spend time during the day shopping, hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park, playing golf, horseback riding, fishing or attending events at Bond Park or the Estes Park Events Center (one mile from my property). Relax in the evening with your favorite adult beverage on the deck and/or balcony with wonderful mountain views and watching the local wildlife.

Sitting on the back deck is like sitting in your own private paradise. The front deck is a perfect spot for morning coffee in the sun when the air is just a little cool, or for reading while basking in the gentle afternoon breezes (it is also a great spot to view the Fourth of July fireworks over Lake Estes!). The side patio is a fun place to gather when food is on the grill or to catch some of the great Estes Park Valley views. The back deck is a wonderful place to spend with family or friends, or just relaxing after an adventurous day. A wildlife migration path cuts through the back yard and elk and deer wander through regularly. A branch of the paved Estes Valley Trail system is right at the bottom of Lexington Lane and across the street, which provides miles of enjoyable walking, running, or biking and makes it easy to get downtown without a car.

The Estes Valley Community Center is located a short distance away and has a fantastic indoor pool for kids and many other work out options for all.

This is the place to stay where your family and friends can spread out, relax and create memories - from the full kitchen to the outdoor patio with a large gas grill.

About Lori

My favorite activities in Estes Park are hiking in RMNP, playing golf, bike riding, watching the wildlife, hanging out with family/friends and shopping.

Lori purchased this house in 2010

Why Lori chose Estes Park

Estes Park is the hidden 'gem' of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado!

This home had everything

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home. It had ample space with added touches to make a vacation home complete. The little fountain was a beehive of activity all day long. Three difference outside sitting areas provide ample places for the entire group to enjoy the wildlife, we saw both bears and deer near the home and were able to enjoy a front row seat for all. The large family room, sun room, game room, and four bedroom provides ample room for handing out. Elk Ridge Lodge had it all.

Lovely well equipped home.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home. Good location, close to town. Home was nicely furnished and well equipped. The only minor complaint would be a lack of good reading lighting.

Beautiful House in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The House was beautiful, big enough for our whole family and in a perfect location. It’s 15 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park and only a 5 minute drive from downtown Estes Park. It also close to the walking trail that goes throughout the town. It was exceptionally clean and the owner was a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

One of the ways I evaluate a VRBO experience is by how fast we feel at home upon arriving. The Elk Ridge Lodge accomplished this within the first 30 minutes. From its beautiful and warm decorations to the many little extras, my family quickly stepped in as if they had been living there for years! The kitchen is fully stocked well beyond the basic pots, pans and utensils. The fireplace warmed up these Floridians real quick! The bedrooms are a good size, the beds cozy and lots of drawer and closet space. The downstairs pool table and "temporary man cave" scored bonus points with the guys! We were welcomed nearly every morning by deer or elk in the back or front yard, truly a marvel! Great access to RMNP and nearby Estes Park. I highly recommend this property. The owner Lori was a delight to work with.

Great house in awesome location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family gathering of 6 adults and 2 kids! It was great for the kids to have the downstairs space to themselves! The house is a short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park, and you can easily access a grocery store. Everyone agreed that the bedrooms/bathrooms were great. Thank you for sharing the home with us!
