About the property

Super cute two story house, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, study on 2nd level with deck

Relax on the second level balcony and enjoy the views!

This property was completely gutted and renovated in late 2013. All furnishings and kitchenware are new.

The Virginia House is conveniently located about 3 blocks from downtown Estes Park within easy walking of shopping, dining and the river walk (the river runs parallel to the main street in town). It's a short 3.5 mile drive to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Virginia House has one bedroom on the main level with a queen size bed. The living area includes plenty of seating with a queen size sleeper sofa and a large flat screen HDTV. The living area also has a gas fireplace to enjoy in the cool mountain evenings. A bathroom with a shower is also on the main level.

The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining area has a pub style dining set with seating for 6. An outdoor charcoal grill is available on the deck outside the dining area. A washer/dryer is also on the main level.

A spiral staircase takes you up to the second level with a large master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and a large walk in closet. The bathroom on the second level includes a bathtub/shower, two vanities and a skylight for lots of natural light.

A charming study is on the second level with french doors out to the balcony along with a second flat screen TV.

The flooring is new oak hardwood throughout.

About Carolyn

My husband, Terry, and I relocated to Estes Park CO from Kansas City MO in 2008 and we love it here! (and we do still miss KC BBQ and the awesome live blues bands...) We have three sons with our youngest in his senior year in college. It's been great living in a smaller town and we love walking anywhere and everywhere from our property.

Terry played baseball four years at the University of Oklahoma and continued playing for nine years professionally. He retired as a Parks Director when we moved to Estes Park and has managed our cottages full time. I'm a former IBM executive and just retired in Feb 2015 to focus exclusively on the cottages (wahoo!)

Carolyn purchased this house in 2013

Why Carolyn chose Chamberlain

This property is one block from our main property. We've admired this house since we moved to Estes Park and were saddened as it seemed to deteriorate over time. When we heard in 2013 that it might go on the market soon, we snatched it up and spent a few months completely renovating. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

While we no longer own The Virginia House, we were excited when the new owners asked us to manage the vacation rentals.

What makes this house unique

Everything new. Tasteful and modern decorations. So cozy! About a 3 block walk to downtown and all the fun the village of Estes Park has to offer.

It was clean, very livable and unique. We had a great time over the weekend and enjoyed the fact the property was close to downtown Estes. Thanks.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

The Virginia house was even better than I hoped. It's so cute and cozy and clean!!! The kitchen was nice, the family room was perfect and the bedrooms were great!! Comfy beds and overall just a perfect little find. Loved having a parking place, made it so convenient. It's a easy walk to town and close to all the action. Highly recommend this place! We had two adults and two adult children 19 and 21. We all loved it

We really enjoyed our stay. The home was very clean and well equipped w/ plenty of towels, pillows, blankets and cookware. A fence was being installed the day after we arrived, to compensate us for the inconvenience the property manager ( former owner) presented us with a gift card for dinner, we found this to be so thoughtful. We would highly recommend this home for your next vacation!

Delightful week!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this house with dear friends from Australia. What a delight to share this home with them. It was so comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities we wanted and needed. We loved being able to walk to the village. The shuttle system was so easy to use. A highlight for all of us were the two elk we found munching at the neighbors across the street! We cheered the USA to victory, watched fireworks at the Stanley Hotel, and hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park is always a favorite for my husband and myself. We had such a wonderful week! We all highly recommend this house!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was very clean and comfortable. I thought the owners did a fantastic job on the remodel, and it was very well decorated (LOVE the elkhorn lamp!). My only comment is that it would be really great if the office upstairs had a pullout bed. Other than that, everything was wonderful!

We really enjoyed this house. It was clean, quiet and convenient to everything. The house was nicely decorated and it looked recently renovated so everything was in good shape. We would definitely recommend staying here if you are heading to Estes and the Rocky National Park.
