About John & Sandy Gilfillan

We moved to Estes Park in 1992 to build and operate The Woodlands on Fall River Suites and RiverWood on Fall River Condominiums. Sandy actually has been coming to Estes Park from Nebraska since she was a baby (way too many years to mention).

This has been our primary home in Estes Park for several years. However, our grandchildren increased in number to the point that we required a larger home in Estes, thus the decision to rent our Audubon house.

John & Sandy Gilfillan purchased this house in 1996

Why John & Sandy Gilfillan chose Front Range

We built this home to take advantage of its wonderful mountain views, Blue Spruce & Ponderosa trees, huge rock outcroppings and half-acre mountainside lot.

What makes this house unique

The home offers great amenities, views and gives guests the opportunity to enjoy one of America's best vacation locations while having the advantage of staying in a private home and not a motel or a hotel. Also, this property allows you to walk to town while still enjoying a private sanctuary among the rocks and ponderosa. It is easier to walk down the mountain to town than the trip back up the mountain.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mountain Views...Walk to Town...Close to Rocky Mountain National Park
average rating of 5.0 based on 22 reviews

This was a perfect rental for us to share with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for us to each have our own space and loved having three bathrooms! The location offered beautiful views and such easy proximity to town, shopping and restaurants. We ate out most of the time, but the breakfast we did cook was easy with all of the provided pans, utensils, etc. We enjoyed down time on the deck, as well as the comfortable living room. We give it five stars! Nancy Berry

Our family had a wonderful time in Estes. Our location, all though close to town was up on a hill and very peaceful and quite. The cabin was spacious and furnished very well. You really do have exceptional views from every window and a great deck. We spent our days exploring Rocky Mt. National Park and our evenings relaxing in a place we thought of as 'home for the 7 days we stayed. We are looking forward to coming back again some day. Having the garage for storage of all of our hiking and biking equipment was a nice plus. Thanks for everything, the Bohurjaks!

The place was beautiful and in a great location. We kept joking about something that would make it less than 5 stars but found nothing. And the owners were gracious and responsive. Loved it.

Beautifully furnished home with great view of the Rockies from the living room and deck!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well furnished with anything you would need. Open floor plan was great for our family, and plenty of room with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Master bedroom is outstanding, with large bathroom, closet, and laundry area. Kitchen was well equipped and convenient. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Location is close to the national park and to Estes Park downtown area. Extra thoughtful items such as a welcome goodie bag and a notebook with restaurant reviews and helpful hints. We hope to come back to Estes Park, and we would love to stay in this house again!
