Estes Park is a small town at the north gateway to the park, and has plenty restaurants, shopping, and hosts the famous Stanley Hotel (stop there for a tour or a cocktail).

Why Bellvue, CO, USA:
This property is the perfect get-away. It is an ideal location due to the sense of solitude, being away from the hustle and bustle, yet only a 15 minute drive to Old Town where you can find endless entertainment, shops, eateries, music and so much more. If you are an outdoorsy person, this is an ideal location for you. Not only is the view of the valley and the red rocks captivating, there is an abundance of wild life, biking trails, state parks, lakes and rivers all within a few miles. So much fun for the whole family, or just a peaceful get-away for anyone.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
While we do have WiFi you wont find a television in every room, in fact you wont find one at all. This is a great place to bring people together and disconnect from their busy and sometimes hectic schedules. We have many games available, a beautiful deck with a hot tub that sparks great conversation, peace, quite, and views to die for. It is not a 5 star resort, it is your retreat while at work or play in this awesome place we call home.
