About Heidi Welsch

We live in Minnesota with our teenaged children and two big dogs. We love to kayak, hike, fish, cook as a family and just hang out. The ranch is our dream home for retirement and we are so happy to share it with you.

Heidi Welsch purchased this house in 2011

Why Heidi Welsch chose Front Range

Christopher used to live in Tahoe and loves mountain life. Heidi has traveled to Estes Park with a close friend over the years and fell in love with the area. We have looked at properties over the years and this summer we just fell in love with the ranch. We knew we found something very special.

What makes this house unique

We can feel ourselves relax as we wind down the road to the ranch. We feel like we are in the middle of the Rocky Mountain National Forest yet we are 5 minutes from hiking or shopping with all of the local activities at our fingertips. We enjoy the rustic charm with modern amenities. It is the perfect setting for gatherings.

Nice Winter/Xmas Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Rented the ranch house for a long weekend to bake Christmas cookies and send out to family and do some hiking in RMNP. It was a snowy few days and the ranch house was a great weekend for relaxing and baking. The hot tub was a welcomed retreat after a day of hiking in the snow and baking. Great location in Estes Park and close to RMNP entrance, and a hint to get through town to Safeway, take Reservation Road off Mary Lake (it is the back way and much faster!). Our only disappointment was that we wished it was decorated for Christmas, but can't have everything. Nice stay, house and location.

This was our second stay at this property. It is well appointed and in a great location. The property Is isolated and private, with just deer and wild turkeys to keep you company. We can't wait for our next stay.

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful with the exception of the mattress in the second suite. It definitely needs replacement in the worst way. Otherwise it's a great place to stay, very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of town, yet close enough for convenience.

Very nice and cozy feel.

  • 5 of 5

Heidi was very easy to work with and responded quickly to our emails. Home was very clean and had a nice cabin feel. Nice views from the large back deck. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need to cook a meal. Was nice to have a washer and dryer also. Wildlife was abundant around the cabin(elk, Lynx, turkey's,coyote). Many things to do in Estes Park and hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. Overall it was a great week in a great cabin.

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Estes Park. The cabin is wonderful! The setting is close to town but far enough that it is very peaceful. I would recommend staying here. Loved it!

Loved our stay at the Ranch House. We were able to see Elk and Turkeys right off the deck. We also enjoyed stargazing from the hot tub!
