About Patti and Greg Glasgow

We moved to Estes Park in 1993 to live and play in the mountains of Colorado. We love hiking, camping, and backpacking. We designed and built this home in 1999 and feel grateful to live in this beautiful place.

Patti and Greg Glasgow purchased this house in 1999

Why Patti and Greg Glasgow chose Venner Ranch Estates

We chose this location because of the beautiful, framed view of Twin Sisters Peak and the convenient access to everything. We love the big pine trees and all of the wildlife we see here. We also like sitting on the deck for a relaxing meal in the warmer months. There is over an acre of land which allows for space and privacy, and room for the wildlife to pass through. We are still close to town for shopping and eating out. Also, Rocky Mountain National Park is just minutes from here without having to drive through town. Very convenient, especially in the summer months.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, quiet setting with great views on 1+ acre of land. Frequent wildlife such as deer, elk, and bobcat. Convenient access to Rocky Mountain National Park and the town of Estes Park. Hike up Prospect Mountain (8900') from our home for panoramic views of the continental divide and surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We have had a wonderful time. It's been a blessing to wake up every morning to the spectacular scenery. We are sad to leave but look forward to returning some day.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

While planning our mother/daughter vacation in Estes Park, I found this property and was impressed by the reviews. We were not disappointed! The moms in our group were extremely impressed by how clean the house was. I think they commented on it every day. :) The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare simple meals and they even had a cooler & ice packs for hiking. It was wonderful having 3 bathrooms and I believe this was commented on too every day since there were 5 women in our group! Estes Park and Rocky Mt. National Park are such wonderful vacation destinations and our stay at this property made it even better. Our mother/daughter vacation was delightful!

Thank you to Patti & Greg for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Wonderful Place to Stay in Estes Park!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental home! We've visited Estes Park many times over the past 10 years and this is our favorite rental. It was very clean and very well-stocked with cooking pans, etc., in very nice condition, plenty of towels, extra blankets, etc. The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for our small family of 3. This home could handle a larger family given that it has 3 queen size beds, and 3 full bathrooms. The view from this home is GORGEOUS! Watching the sunrise from the deck was worth getting up early for.

You can get to a convenience store with a grocery department, gasoline, and quite a few restaurants from this home without getting into the downtown EP traffic, should you wish to avoid some of that congestion. The home is about 10 minutes from the main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. All in all, a top-notch lodging choice!

Perfect Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We chose this wonderful mountain home to come from Illinois to meet up with our son from Denver, and other son and his wife from Seattle. The house arrangement worked perfectly for our needs - we could all have our own space and more importantly our own bathroom! Patti & Greg went above and beyond to communicate with us before and during our stay. The location and mountain view are perfect - close enough to conveniences yet secluded and private. The house is well supplied and includes a detailed binder that helps you to feel comfortable with all appliances and functions of the house. Having the TV downstairs did not even affect us - never turned it on! We put together puzzles, played games, and just enjoyed being together the old fashioned way! Much appreciation to Patti & Greg for offering their home as a VRBO in the summer.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and clean. The views were amazing. It was the perfect place to come home to after a day of hiking in RMNP. The kitchen was well stocked with high end appliances. We enjoyed cooking in the evenings and eating out on the deck. Very easy access to the town of Estes Park. Would definitely visit this property again.

Perfect cabin for hiking vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Glasgow's cabin. Clean and updated, with plenty of room for our group of 5. Great mountain views from every window, and the deck was the perfect place to relax each morning and each evening, after a long day of hiking in RMNP. The location is ideal; close to town but away from the congestion of downtown Estes Park. Thank you for sharing your home and making it a key part of a great vacation.

The house was beautiful. It was perfect for our family. We love Estes Park and it was so nice to visit again. The house was in great condition. We saw a bobcat as well as many deer around the house. The humming birds were very friendly as well. We loved sitting on the balcony in the morning and watching the sun come up over the mountains! The owners provided great info in a notebook. We would absolutely recommend this house to others. The pictures on the VBRO site were an exact description of the house both inside and out. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

We are located in Estes Park, gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Must do activities include hiking some of the more than 300 miles of trails in the National Park. Some favorites are any of the trails out of the Bear Lake and Moraine Park areas. The free Park Shuttle Bus System operates in this area from late May through early October and is convenient and easy to use. Check with the Park Service for detailed route and schedule information. Taking a free Ranger Guided Hike is a fun and informative way to get to know the National Park. Pick up a Park newspaper at any visitor center or entrance station for more information. The entrance fee for the Park is $30 per vehicle and is valid for 7 days. A bargain! Other outdoor activities include horseback riding, flyfishing, rock climbing, and photography. Many outfitters are available to assist with these and other activities.

Climbing Longs Peak (14,259') is a goal of many who visit this area. This is a serious hike that involves some rock scrambling and should not be taken lightly. Careful planning and proper conditioning are a must.

No visit is complete without a journey up Trail Ridge Road, usually open by Memorial Day weekend. This paved road tops out at over 12,000' and has several overlooks with spectacular views. Stop at the Trail Ridge Store and Alpine Visitor Center (11,796') then return, or continue on to Grand Lake and back for a full day of exploration.

The town of Estes Park hosts several festivals and events throughout the summer and also has lots of shops and restaurants. Insider tip: Park at the fairgrounds and ride the free shuttle to the Visitor Center. From there it is a short walk to Elkhorn Ave. and the Riverwalk. You can also catch the shuttle bus into the National Park from the Visitor Center. Stop in at the Estes Park Visitor Center.

Other activities might include a walk or bicycle ride around Lake Estes, a boat rental at the Marina, or a round of golf. Bicycles can be rented at Estes Park Mountain Shop just below the Lake Estes dam. They also rent flyfishing gear, guide trips, and have an indoor climbing gym (great fun for kids and adults).

A hike up Prospect Mountain (8900') from our front door affords panoramic views of the Continental Divide and the Estes Valley. This moderate hike with no crowds is well worth the effort and easily accessed through our neighborhood.

Of course you can always just relax and enjoy the views from our deck. Ahhhh.
