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.

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!

We LOVED our stay in Estes Park and this beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

The Elk Ridge home provided a great landing spot from our family to meet from four states. The beds were super comfortable and the rooms quiet and dark. We cooked several meals in the well equipped kitchen. The home was just a mile from town and several miles from RMNP. Highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice place in Estes Park.

The property and home were lovely. A lot of space to spread out in.

  • 5 of 5

It was a great space for a great week-end. The children loved the tree house. I have two minor suggestions. First, it would be helpful if TP was provided. Your notes on the property stated to provide your own but packing that is rather a nuisance. For the small additional cost to you, it would add to the convenience of your property. The bathtub does not have a slip proof floor and there is nothing to grab or hang on to if one began to slip. I am not sure what you call the "rails" or "safety" things you find in most bath stalls, but I suggest you put these up. It would be a minor task and could prevent and unwanted fall. Thanks again for the use of your space. I would recommend it to others.

Well kept, clean, comfortable, beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our needs and was very clean and inviting. Great location for downtown activities and close to the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Beautiful fireplace in the cozy living room. Sun room and balcony were special places to enjoy the views. Bedrooms were quiet and bedding was comfortable. We would be happy to return to this rental again. Only downside was the pool table had seen better days and air hockey did not work.

Beautiful house - perfect for a mini college reunion.

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and had the right accommodations for our group of five women. It was easy to find and had adequate parking for our two cars. The ONLY complaint is that there was no extra toilet paper. Seemed strange.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed my property. It is stated in my short term rental agreement that the tenant/renter is to provide toilet paper, soap, shampoos and other consumables. I do provide one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom for your arrival as well as Kleenex, napkins and a roll of paper towels.

Lovely and spacious home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and loved the view from the front balcony. We came for the Sottish festival and were close enough to walk. Though there is some uphill on the way back :) .

There were 8 of us and there was more than enough room. We would love to stay here again.

Family relaxation in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We met as a family group and stayed here, it worked perfectly for us. We had not had such a gathering before and first thought about getting hotel rooms; that would never have been as good as this. The house has four bedrooms, so we all had privacy; a large living room, so we could be together, a pool room downstairs, and it is tastefully and comfortably decorated so we felt at home. The patio and backyard are spacious and have fun details like a water feature, string lights that look like pine cones, a fire pit and a hammock. The neighborhood is quiet and the house has a great view of the mountains. It's also easy to find and just a couple miles from downtown. We loved it! Thanks!
