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 Estes Park

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.

Amazingly perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I loved this property. Her first time to see the Rockies. Our first trip away without kids since honeymoon 15 years ago. Great location to all we wanted to see and do. Cabin was super cute and enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook some meals. The owner is super accommodating, helpful and nice! We will be back with the family during warmer months.

Great SECOND stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying. The first time we rented the “estate”this time around we only rented the house as our party was smaller. We love the location and the house itself. The owners are very responsive to any concerns.

Amazing cabin escape to unplug and recharge

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we needed. An escape in the woods to disconnect. The cabin is gorgeous. The level of detail when decorating was impressive. We loved the long table for meals and playing cards/games. We were in shock when deer came right up to the deck when we were having breakfast the first morning. Amazing animals. Thank you. We will be back.

Amazing Setting

  • 4 of 5

The house was nestled in a great location, secluded yet close to town and RMNP.

There were elk everyday and a few mule deer as well. The hot tub in the snow was an added plus.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home and perfect for 2 couples. Home is clean and had most everything we needed. The hot tub was especially nice after long hikes at RMNP. Really appreciated having washer and dryer. Kitchen had lots of spices and was fully equipped. Also appreciated Wifi as cellular reception was spotty. The only negative was the ice maker wasn't working and after contacting owner, she indicated repair would happen after our stay. Unfortunately there weren't any ice trays so we had to buy ice. Would definitely stay there again!
