About Dan and Kelly Heard, owners, Mark Mattson, property manager
I discovered Colorado in 1972 when hiking and camping in the San Juan Mountains, but I fell in love with it in 1994 when Kelly and I visited with friends at the YMCA here. We found Alberta Falls, and the Bear Lake, Nymph Lake, Dream Lake, Emerald Lake hikes to be great ways to introduce our young new family to the outdoors. Then later we discovered more difficult hikes like Sky Pond and I climbed Longs twice. We have brought a bit of Texas hospitality with us, and we hope you enjoy our paradise in the mountains!

Why Dan and Kelly Heard, owners, Mark Mattson, property manager chose Estes Park
The spirit of Estes Park is one of helpful caring cooperation. We love the people here. And though there are dozens of homes, cabins, condos and lodges for you in the greater Estes Valley, know you are a full 2200 feet above the Town of Estes Park, and in the summer we are cooler, which is important. We are at 9500 feet elevation, you find serenity and peacefulness you just don't find in the bustling town. The special views of Twin Sisters, Battle Mountain, Tahosa Valley down toward Boulder and Denver, and a peak of the famous Long's Peak are breathtaking. This place is truly tranquil, a wonderful respite from all your stress and burdens.
What makes this House unique
Visitors love the wrap around deck with a view of the pine trees and surrounding mountains overseeing the lovely Tahosa Valley. Few places border Rocky Mountain National Park, and are near the great overlook of Estes Cone. And of course the rarely seen "Goblin's Castle" - a rock formation ON OUR PROPERTY! Get your rappelling gear out and climb the 80 foot formation! (warning - you must be trained and properly equipped to rock climb and we don't recommend for anyone underage).

Our group of 11 truly enjoyed this property. The 6 young boys were in heaven with all of the rocks to climb and the deck to play on. The views were amazing, and it was beyond peaceful. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out, but the lack of bathroom space was a little tricky for all of us.
A beautiful property with amazing views!
This property was exactly what we were looking for. The house was very comfortable and met our needs well and the views were breath taking. I was looking for seclusion and this property delivered it in spades while not being too far out of the way. We loved it and look forward to booking it again some day if we can.
Really enjoyed the location & the comfortable property-
Beautiful property with an absolutely stunning view. Came here with my sisters and our families for a week in the Rockies and we were not disappointed! Hope to come back next summer and possibly enjoy the same home! Owner is so friendly and really makes an effort to respond quickly and make sure you have anything you need. Wonderful place to stay!
We had such a great week long stay here. The house is beautifully updated and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Exploring the 6 acres around the house and the short walk to the creek/Goblins Castle was a great bonus. The views from the decks are outstanding, and the location really makes you feel like you’re out in the mountains, but still not too far from town. Great location for accessing any of the 3 eastern entrances to RMNP. Overall a wonderful place!
Thank you, Kelly!
Remarkable Stay and Beautiful Views
If you want to get away from everything, stay here! The owners are great people and make sure you are 100% happy. There’s a great view from every window. On their property is a beautiful creek called the “Inn Brook”. You can hear the Brook rumbling down the hill, such a peaceful sound. This house is truly a rare find!
