About the Property

4 Bedrooms Including 2 Master Suites, 3 1/2 Bathrooms

A magnificent mountain home with outstanding view of Longs Peak. The rambling house provides many nooks from which to enjoy exquisite views or a leisurely cup of tea or coffee. The patio offers a quiet and serene atmosphere for grilling, gathering the family, relaxing, and keeping watch for wildlife. The blue spruces, pine trees, and juniper provide a sense of seclusion while just an easy walk to downtown. The garden and green lawn provide another area to relax or play as you enjoy the view of the gondola on Prospect Mountain, views of Longs Peak, and its neighboring peaks.

Cook traditional family recipes in this well equipped kitchen with stainless steel pots and pans, four-slice toaster, microwave, Cuisinart blender, Keurig coffee maker, wine glasses, kitchen tools, slow cook cooker, and more all complementing this beautiful kitchen.

The cabinets and bench seat are beetle kill from a local wood mill in Drake, Colorado. The knotty pine cabinets and walls are in the dinning room. The rich woods add a warm atmosphere to our home.


The sizeable and unique dining-sunroom-living room has rich oak floors that accent the elegance of tradition and the invitation of comfort. The lengthy living room allows for two separate seating areas with twin leather sofas that speak of western hospitality. Adjacent to this area are two bedrooms with queen beds and a classy stone bathroom.

Upstairs are two beautiful master suites. One has an adjacent sitting room with an east balcony plus lounge chairs for an early cup of coffee. There is a private bathroom with two sinks. The second master suite has a cabin atmosphere with pine tongue-and-groove paneled walls and oak flooring. This suite also has a private bathroom.

Available for your outdoor activities is the use of day packs. There is always extra ice for packing up for a day activity. If you should decide to have an evening “at home”, there are board games, yard darts and Corn Hole Toss.

This vacation site is a seven minute walk to our downtown shopping and restaurant area. One of our oldest stores (70 years) is the Indian Village. The proprietor, Toni, can share her expertise of Indian background with jewelry and other specialty items in the store. Safeway and the historic Stanley Hotel are within walking distance as well.

The home is peaceful and serene with an abundance of mountain birds in the early morning hours or gathered at the birdbaths among the native wild flowers. It is the perfect spot for gathering
three or four couples, a small family, holiday gatherings or a small company retreat. It's a home for a writer, photographer or artist will find it a nesting place for creativity.

This house can handle your family of 8 guests or a romantic getaway for two—glorious weather in the summer and intimate with the warmth of fireside winters. Come, relax, refresh, and refocus as your enjoy the recreational wonderland of Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1954

About the owner: Paul's grandmother bought the original cabin after she retired from teaching English literature at University of Colorado. As we assumed ownership, we both added to and updated the original home. With our grandchildren coming into the home, five (5) generations of Romigs have enjoyed the house, the grounds, the Town of Estes Park, and the restful and yet stimulating beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Paul was born in Denver but grew up in the Northern Virginia suburbs. Ellen was raised in the near suburbs of Washington, D.C.. We met at an elementary school in McLean, VA where we both were employed. We vacationed here several summers before finally moving to Colorado in 1988.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
This house has been a part of my (Paul's) life since my high school days.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the views from the large picture windows from which we see Twin Sisters, Long's Peak, and the majestic high country peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park. As place to vacation, we enjoyed getting up early, going for hikes, coming back to the house for food and rest, playing Uno, and enjoying a stroll downtown to wander through the shops in the evenings...maybe stopping in one of the ice cream parlors for a cone.
