Property description

Come and stay at the Hill House - a stone's throw away from the National Park Boundary. Enjoy wildlife on your doorstep and carefully tended native perennial flowers while staying in a cozy, homey environment.
The house faces south with a sweeping view of Longs Peak and neighboring mountains. Our large wrap-around porch is the best access to the yard of flowers and reflecting pond. It is perfect for reading, dining, being entertained by our visiting hummingbirds, or watching the elk and mule deer pass by. You can even grill or eat outside during our afternoon thunderstorms.
The National Park is just out the back door. The entrance station can be reached without having to negotiate downtown traffic and you can even hike in on foot. If you do want to go downtown and don't want to hassle with parking (a momentous task in the summer months), you can take the town's free shuttle. There is a stop just at the end of the road.
The house boasts three bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. The two bedrooms on the second floor offer privacy, a queen size bed, heated floor in the bathroom, a sitting area, and an eastern or western exposure. The third bedroom is on the ground floor with a queen bed and a private bath.
A well-arranged baker's kitchen offers a large island, two ovens, a microwave, dishwasher, and other small appliances.
On chilly evenings the wood stove warms the dining room that seats (6) with a view of Longs Peak from the over sized door.
The cozy living room offers pull-out couch, cable TV, a combo DVD-VHS player, books of the area, movies, and games.
Wireless internet is also available.

A stay of less than 5 days is $250.00 a night, I require a 4 day minimum unless I have a gap in my calendar.

NOTE: While we have a "Book it" button on our listing, we strongly recommend that you contact us first via phone or the "Send e-mail" button. We want all our guests to love staying in our house as much as we do, and to that end, we'd like the opportunity to answer all your questions and make sure it is the best fit for your party, before you make any monetary commitments.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I returned to Estes Park because of fond memories of earlier days working at Dude ranches in the area. I purchased Hill House in 2007. I have the good fortune to work in Rocky Mountain National Park with the Resource Division. I tend to the native plants during the day and then to my own at home. My background is plants so the yard around Hill House has a mixture of native and other perennials. I have spent 5 years improving Hill House. What was once a little house with an attached rickety cabin is now a simple but comfortable home. I salvaged all I could when I dismantled the cabin addition and have reused much of the paneling, trim, and exterior siding. I was able to build a small green house using the old windows, siding for the floor, and reused roofing. I also frequented building material recycling yards and have purchased items such as sinks, vanities, the sliding door in the kitchen, as well as other doors. After this long road of never-ending projects, I am excited to share Hill House with you. During the winter of 2015 I added a garage to the back of the house. Check out Hill House on facebook to see the before and after pictures.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
Hill House is close to my beloved Rocky Mountain National Park (I can walk to work). Longs Peak and surrounding mountains can be seen from the front porch. The neighborhood is in a quaint older area of Estes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are tired of driving or didn’t bring a car, free transportation is conveniently available from Hill House during the summer season. After a long day of hiking or hitting the shops, Hill House is a great place to relax. The comfy chairs on the wrap-around porch offer not only views of the mountains, but the continuous entertainment of the local birds enjoying all the flowers in the yard.
