About Heidi Welsch
We live in Minnesota with two big dogs. We love to kayak, hike, fish, cook as a family and just hang out. The ranch house 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
We looked at properties over the years just fell in love with the ranch house. 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. There is a renovated horse stable about 20 steps away. It has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. During your stay nobody will be staying at the ranch house - the ranch house the the entire property will be yours and only yours. We do rent the houses out together to accommodate gatherings for groups up to 18 guests so keep this in mind for future stays!

It is beautiful and breathtaking.
The house, hot tub, fire pit, and grill are all you need to have an amazing time with friends and family. The wild life you encounter are amazing elk deer and wild turkeys roaming about.
Our family felt right at home. The property clean and well furnished.
Nice with everything you need
Overall a great experience. House was clean, well stocked and perfect location. Would stay again. Only thing to note was the hot tub needs to be drained, cleaned and refilled. Didn’t affect overall stay. Recommend highly.
Amazingly perfect escape
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
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
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.
