About Marvin Hart

We have owned this property for a very long time. We only lived in it for 5 years and then we converted it to a long term rental. After moving back to the area (we now live in Fort Collins) we did a total renovation of the property in 2012 to make it a vacation rental that we could also enjoy when it isn't rented.

Marvin Hart purchased this house in 1973

Why Marvin Hart chose Estes Park

We enjoyed this property when we lived in it raising our two sons. They now have their own families and they too enjoy coming back to Estes Park and staying here and remembering those wonderful early years.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy views of Longs Peak, Twin Sisters or the Mummy Range from the different decks. This property is close to many things that can be found in Estes Park, but yet it is away from the downtown summer crowds and bumper to bumper slow moving traffic. You can easily reach the 18 and 9 hole golf courses. an indoor swimming pool, Lake Estes, Big Thompson River, the Fish Creek/Lake Estes walking trail, biking, hiking, Rocky Mountain National Park, shopping, observatory and so many other activities.

Great home-lousy weather

  • 4 of 5

There is an awesome deck that we didn't get to use near enough due to rain and didn't get to use the great looking fire pit . The house was well stocked with all the dishes and such needed our family. The owner was friendly and helpful. The house is close to everything in Estes Park but not close enough to walk to town unless you like long walks.

Great, comfortable getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views. Quiet location. Pictures do not do justice to amount of space & freshness of the house - it is lovely, well cared for and very comfortable. We had 7 adults and 3 kids stay comfortably in the upstairs & downstairs. Owner was super responsive and even met us upon arrival to show us around. Owner clearly cares about the house & that guests have a good experience. Would definitely stay there again.

Great place for a family to stay and enjoy the mountains and wildlife

  • 5 of 5

There were deer and elk that walked through the property and sitting out and grilling on the deck was great. My grandchildren really enjoyed their first visit to the mountains.

A great place to stay in Estes Park

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space, a beautiful deck and yard, good kitchen facilities. Helpful owner who gave us some great advice on what to see in the area. Our kids really liked it here.

Not near downtown - you aren't going to be walking to much, but we were mostly using it as a base for travel to Rocky Mountain National Park

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 young boys (8,5,2) had a great time at this house! Marvin greeted us upon arrival and was very helpful showing us around the house and telling us about the area. The house was well furnished. We purchased some groceries in town and were set. The fire pit was great for evening smores and we had lots of deer and one elk come right through the yard.

The best thing is the proximity to RMNP. It was less than 10 minutes away. We were able to arrive early at the park, hike and explore the area, make it back to the house for lunch/naps and go back to the park in the evening.
