About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Nestled against a mountainside and near the beautiful Big Thompson River, the D&J Victorian Townhome offers beautiful surroundings and a relaxing atmosphere. The cabin has a victorianized exterior, an immaculate, beautifully decorated interior, and a front porch with swing to enjoy the refreshing Colorado air and wildlife that frequent the area.

The townhome is located in the Blue Spruce Village - a quiet, private community just outside of the city limits of Estes Park. Rocky Mountain National Park is just a quarter mile to the west of the property, allowing an easy 20 minute hike directly to Moraine Park within Rocky Mountain National Park.

The Big Thompson River is about 50 yards away, and guests have full access to both sides of the river, including picnic tables.

Please note:

* The D&J Victorian is a no-pets, no-smoking property.

* Children over 12 are welcome.

* 6 person maximum occupancy.

* A 5th and/or 6th person are $15 extra per person, per night.

The following are some of the comments we've received from past guests:

'Thanks for letting us share a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with out-of-state family in your beautifully appointed townhome. The photos on the web don't do it justice.'

'How lucky can you be? Browsing through the internet for leads, a few telephone calls, a long cross-country drive. A spot on the map became reality - Estes Park, gem of Colorado's Rockies. Then over strange streets to Blue Spruce Village and our home for one wonderful week - the D&J Victorian. It was truly a pleasant surprise to walk into such a warm and homey place. And it was immaculate!! We hate to leave, but have enjoyed every minute of our stay here and look forward to a repeat performance.'

'We had such a wonderful time in Estes Park. And we couldn't ask for a better place to stay. All the personal touches really made us feel welcome. We hope to come back in the near future. Thanks for making our time in Colorado really special. God Bless!'

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an amazing time exploring Estes Park and RMNP. This was a very lovely place to stay and we enjoyed sitting outside to enjoy the sun. We also watched elk walk through the neighborhood! This is the first of many trips to Estes Park!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and beautiful home in a quiet peaceful location. Everything you need to enjoy your stay and feel totally at home. Very good location--just outside of Estes and close to Bear Lake and all the area attractions. I would check on air conditioning if planning on staying in July and August--maybe they put in portable air conditioners during that time? I don't know, but worth checking on. Totally enjoyed this Townhome--we were here 2nd weekend in June with amazing weather--worked out great for us!

Perfect Blend! 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

A perfect blend between a nice property, great location and reasonable pricing. We could not be happier. Property is about 2 minutes by car from downtown Estes Park. very! easy quick drive with lots of Elk , wild Turkeys, foxes and more to see. We saw them all with an abundance of Elk. We even had Elk right at our front window one morning. Sooo cool. The Elk appear to be very at ease with people and cars. While we would not try to touch one (just to be on safe side) they all appear calm and happy (are Elk Happy? lol).

Anyway, everything was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Each bedroom has it's own private full bath (nice!). There is another bathroom downstairs. The bedrooms are upstairs so the only small caution would be to anyone who may have health issues with a small flight of stairs.

There are many places to stay in Estes Park but most are just overpriced in our opinion. This was an excellent property blend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. When we return to estes Park we will rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing D&J Victorian Townhome. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay, and that you got to see some of Estes Park's diverse wildlife while you were there (and you were wise not to touch the Elk - they can be very aggressive during calving and rut seasons in Spring and Fall!). We hope that you'll stay with us again soon!

Best gem in Estes Park!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place! The four adults in our group had a great time really enjoyed this very cozy place! The fireplace with firewood is wonderful and each bedroom with its own bathroom was just awesome! The kitchen is fully equipped and the location is the best so close to downtown to enjoy many great restaurants and we were close to some great trails for snow shoeing! (Or hiking in the summer). Truly a wonderful stay and the owner very attentive and communicates very well if there is anything needed. We highly recommend this little gem in Estes Park!!
