Property description

Welcome to our secluded mountain retreat on the river. Wade, sit on the rocks, or fish for wild trout in the Big Thompson River and feel your worries fade away. Eat lunch on one of the picnic tables as you admire the mountains, roast marshmallows in the fire pit, or simply relax on the large manicured lawn.

You can enjoy coffee or tea in the morning in the dining room as you watch the wildlife through 5 large windows. Or watch the wildlife from almost any of the other 30 windows in this cozy house - including the five windows surrounding the jetted tub in the master bath! End your day relaxing in one of the large recliners in the sunroom - listening to the river and the other sounds of nature. Views of the snow-capped mountains and the smell of the evergreen trees will stay with you long after you leave.

Our home is in a prime location. We are at the end of a quiet drive with a large private yard that runs down to the river. The entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is only one mile away where you can enjoy the many trails, rivers, and wonderful sights the park has to offer. Shopping also is available less than one mile away with many quaint stores, restaurants, and peaceful walks along the river.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Jim and Gail Shroyer live in Manhattan, Kansas. They are the proud parents of four grown sons and two adorable granddaughters. Both are emeritus faculty at Kansas State University. Jim was an extension wheat specialist and Gail was a science educator. Jim is a native Oklahoman and Gail is a native Californian, but both consider Estes Park 'home away from home'. They have been bringing their children to camp in Rocky Mountain National Park for over twenty years.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
Jim and Gail bought Mountain Haven as their future retirement home. They love the mountains, the rivers, the incredible wildlife, and the people of Estes Park!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Estes Park is a wonderful community with a multitude of activities. You can hike one of the hundreds of fabulous trails in Rocky Mountain Park, drive the Trail Ridge Road, watch animals, talk to friendly people, shop or eat in 'one of a kind' shops and restaurants, or walk along the river and enjoy the many water works in the center of town.
