Overview

About the property

Sleep To The Sound Of The Big Thompson River Outside Your Windows!

We have two properties in Estes Park at Blue Spruce Village. Unit #11 and this one unit #2 which we just purchased early July. While this is a new property for us we have owned Unit #11 for several years and invite you to view the comments other vacationers have written at VRBO #199878.

The Pinehenge is a beautifully appointed and decorated 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home. It is located right on the Big Thompson River in a quiet, private and gated community in the 'Blue Spruce Village'. The Big Thompson runs just a few feet away from the back deck. Enjoy your morning coffee or happy hour drinks listening to the rushing river from your wrap around, spacious wrap-a-round deck. Open the windows and hear the river all day and night! We stock the river with rainbow trout every 2 weeks between late June and late Aug.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, Private balcony overlooking the river and a gas fireplace. The second master has a queen size bed. The third bedroom is a good kids retreat as it has two queen size beds, walk-in closet and room to play games on the floor area. All Bedrooms are upstairs. The downstairs sofa opens to a queen size bed for two.

This home has it all. The kitchen is fully equipped with top quality dishware, cookware and utensils. Outside you'll find a New Weber gas grill. The living area has a TV/DVD/DVR plus a gas fireplace. We also provide WIFI internet access and Free long distance service should you need it.

Blue Spruce Village is approximately 5 minutes outside Estes Park and two miles from the entrance to the spectacular Rocky Mountain National Park. Only one quarter mile from the original entrance to the park, you can walk to a park trail that leads to beautiful Moraine Park. You won't be disappointed!

About Donna Claypool

We are a family that just moved from San Antonio to Austin, Texas only a few weeks ago. We love the wonderful weather in Texas but spending part of the summer in Estes is a wonderful climate change.

Donna Claypool purchased this house in 2013

Why Donna Claypool chose Front Range

We are a family that fell in Love with Estes Park. After renting the same home in Blue Spruce Village for 8 years we had the opportunity to make our dream become a reality. We purchased both Unit #11 (VRBO#199878) and now unit #2.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite things to do (during the cool crisp mornings) is enjoy a great cup of coffee watching the river flow by while the kids feed the fish.

Beautiful, riverside relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A very lovely home by the river. It was clean and had everything we could have wanted and more, including a gas grill and a variety of cooking spices. We loved sitting on the porch by the river, it was beautiful outside as well as inside. We did not meet Donna, but she was very friendly and easy to work with via email. If we are ever fortunate enough to come back to Estes Park, this will be the first home we will check for availability!

Beautiful house. Quiet neighborhood. Nice to sit on the patio by the river.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house if you're going to RM National Park. Close to town but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city.

Owner's Response: Hi Richard, Thanks so much for your review! So glad you were able to enjoy time by the river and escape hot weather! We look forward to your return! Regards, Lloyd & Donna

Beautiful river location, delightful interactions

  • 5 of 5

My family just got back from Estes Park. We had a wonderful time. The house location on the river was very peaceful and I caught a few rainbows with the kids. The house is well taken care of and supplied and the Donna, the property manager was a pleasure to work with. Location is perfect. Just outside on Rocky Mountain National Park, just close enough to downtown for convenience but far enough away to avoid the bustle. We hope to come again.
