About the property

House;4 Bedroom 2 1/2 bath with Mountain Views bordering the 18 Hole Golf Course

ESTES PARK BUSINESS LICENSE # 3062 Beautiful, updated house that is adjacent to the Estes Park 18 Hole Golf Course with unobstructed views of the 17th green and fairway. Great mountain views from the family room, dining room and patio. Our home is a short walk to the Estes Park walking and biking trail. Downtown shopping is approximately 1.5 - 2 miles away. The dog park is about 1 mile from our home.

The main level (first floor) has a family room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, 2 car garage, 1/2 bath, Master Bedroom and Master Bath. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and a full bath. The home has 2 bedrooms with king log beds (1 downstairs and 1 upstairs), 1 bedroom with a queen log bed (upstairs) and 1 bedroom with a twin log bunk bed (upstairs). All bedrooms have TVs. We also have a travel crib at the house if you need it. However, our home is NOT baby or toddler proofed!!

We also have a small desk area downstairs and wireless internet for those of you who still need to work a little or check email while on vacation. A full size washer and dryer are located on the main level in the utility room. And yes.... we have an iron and ironing board.

The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, including a blender, crock pot, toaster, regular coffee maker plus Keurig coffee maker (bring your own coffee or K cups), microwave, gas range, all utensils, pots, pans, plates, glasses and coffee mugs.

There is complimentary high-speed wireless internet and DVR. Also included is a 42' LED flat screen TV and DVD player in the family room. Additionally, EACH bedroom has a TV.

We have a front patio with outside seating that is great for watching the Elk or golfers. We have a gas BBQ grill on the side patio if you want to cook burgers or grill steaks.

This is the perfect place for your family vacation including one or two well trained dogs. Sorry.... no cats due to owner allergies. Estes Park does have a strict leash law and is enforced with heavy fines. We have a fenced in potty area but dogs must be on a leash outside of this area. Pets may not be left unattended in the house without being housed in the extra large crate provided free of charge. The crate is large enough for 1 large or 2 medium size dogs.

About Kris Troxtell

Our family of six has been visiting Estes Park since 1997. We return each year because of Estes Park's unmatched beauty, lack of crowds and available activities regardless of the season. In the summer we golf, hike, fly fish, bike and view the abundance of wildlife (including daily visits of Elk outside our windows). In the winter we like to snowshoe in Estes Park or drive 42 miles on an all-weather road to Eldora Ski Resort..... the best kept secret in Colorado!

Kris Troxtell purchased this house in 2014

Why Kris Troxtell chose Front Range

Our family continues to grow as our boys get married so now we have 2 homes side by side and we can all stay together. This home sleeps 8 and the house next door sleeps 12 (VRBO 654289).

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for nicer rental homes for our family vacation this summer. We rented two of their homes for 6 adults and 7 adult children. The homes were perfect and WAY beyond all our expectations. They were both beautiful with gorgeous views of the golf course, mountains and lots of wildlife. It had everything you could imagine needing. Rooms were large and nicely decorated and everything was very clean. We did a lot of cooking and the other house we rented was in walking distance and it had a large kitchen and table so we would all meet and eat there. It was minutes away from everything and yet in a quiet neighborhood when we wanted to relax from the hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding, ATVing and of course shopping. The owner was great and we couldn't imagine coming to Estes Park again and not staying in one of their homes. (I wouldn't change a thing!)

The Destination Wedding

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay! This was our first trip to Estes Park and we loved everything about it. In addition to excellent accommodations, outstanding views, convenient location to Rocky Mountain National Park and the beautiful town, working with the owners of this vacation rental really complimented the trip! Kris was awesome to work with in setting up the rental arrangements and going out of her way to answer questions about the area. The Internet went down at no fault of the owners and she responded immediately to help resolve with the Internet provider. We stay in a lot of timeshares along with owning a unit, however renting this house topped that with having all amenities of home available. We hope to be back someday for a low key vacation. This trip was a destination wedding for our daughter.

Once again, a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying in Kris and Davids' beautiful home the week before Thanksgiving, The views are magnificent from the living room, so if it's frigid outside, we could stay cozy by the fire and still enjoy the scenery. Being across form the golf course is great for walks, or sledding when snow is accommodating. The herds of Elk on the golf course and in the front yard are wonderful! A beautiiful, lovely appointed home that makes our family get togethers so comfortable and fun! We love this place! So convenient and

welcoming! Estes is fun this time of year, with Christmas lights, small trees at the Stanley, great restaurants, the Nepal for take-out and Claires on the Park for local organic cuisine.

Thank you Kris! Your home was awesome! Our families LOVED everything about it! The location was perfect. We woke up to several deer grazing near the golf course! (Even saw a bear next door). Loved all the restaurant suggestions that you provided! I believe we ate at most of them and enjoyed all of them! Fireworks over Estes Park was a spectacular!!!! Estes Park and RMNP are gorgeous! We can’t wait to come back…and when we do…we will for sure be requesting your lovely home! Thanks again!!!!

We had more than enough room for our extended family, and never felt crowded. The home is well appointed and we were able to enjoy the wonderful new grill! The view is beyond sensational. I would highly recommend this home to all. Thanks Kris for making our stay memorable.

This was our very first family vacation with our 2 youngest kiddos (2 yo & 4 yo) and they had a blast!! We also brought Grammy, Uncle and our oldest daughter (13 yo). There was plenty of room for everyone comfortably. The home not only met every expectation but exceeded them! So beautifully decorated, with all the amenities you need for a family. The view, the VIEW... literally closer to the Lord up there!!

This is our first rental Home Away, we were a little skeptical booking a home rental online... but Kris (owner) was wonderful and very accommodating! Right when we arrived, I became pretty sick from elevation and she was kind enough to let us in a little early, VERY helpful :) Thank you again!! The whole process from start to finish was simple and straight forward, no issues. We'll definitely be back!

I don't think I could say it enough, we had an AMAZING time!! Thank you to the Troxtells! :)
