About Steve Ferrante

Kelly and I are happily married with 4 kids and have spent many happy summers in Rocky Mountain National Park – going back to 1993. We usually stayed at the YMCA and we would often dream of having a cabin right on the property there.

Steve Ferrante purchased this house in 2014

Why Steve Ferrante chose Front Range

This cabin’s property shares the Wind River, and we border the YMCA property, so we’ve achieved our dream. This home is also special to us because within 10 minutes you can hike right into the Park without getting in your car. The back of the cabin, especially the master bedroom balcony, gives a nice view of Mt Ypsilon.

What makes this house unique

Getting in and out year-round is achieved because we are on Highway 66, also called Tunnel Road, but this is not a “through” road – it ends about 500 yards past our property, so the traffic is minimal.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Getaway for our extended family! Spacious, beautiful and perfectly equipped. The location is just far enough from town to be private yet convenient and close to park entrance. Stunning views!

Excellent retreat, close to RMNP

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here while hosting a retreat with 3 guests. The property was better than expected. Kitchen is well stocked with enough plates, wine glasses, flatware, and serving ware for a large group. This house would work well for 2-3 families.

Here are the only negatives I have about this house:

- We had to bring our own firewood

- The driveway might not be passable for a 2wd car in winter, and there is no where else to park

- When we arrived, the wifi info given to us through VRBO did not have the correct password. There is no cell reception at the house, and since we couldn't access the wifi, I had to drive back into Estes Park to call the owner to get correct wifi info.

- The rooms were too warm when we arrived, even though the thermostats were below 60.

Despite all of the above, we would happily stay at Rivendell again!

Prefect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 13 people, ranging from 91 to 20 months. The youngest being the only one under 22. The house worked our great for all of us. We were able to enjoy meals together. People could have quiet time if they wished. We enjoyed the mule deer and elk that came into the yard and surrounding areas. We all enjoyed time outside, walking, sledding and just playing in the snow. There are different areas in the house so you can have games in one area, quiet activities in another and still have a place for just viewing the outside. We loved the big back room with the electric stove. The house is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Very well maintained. We all thought we would stay here again. Worked out fantastic. Thank you for sharing!!!

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely wonderful! We love the decor and the feeling of home. There is a space in the back that had a fireplace and it was great for us to gather around. There was plenty of space for a larger group and was furnished well in the kitchen. Definitely recommend!

A wonderful place for family retreat.

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family of 14 to this house in early December. The house is beautiful and located in a beautiful location. There was plenty of room for all three families with their children. Close enough to town (Estes Park) to get to restaurants and amenities. I have already had two other families contact me about this house after seeing our pictures. I highly recommend this home.

Luxury with a View

  • 5 of 5

Ideal place for our 3-generation family to share Thanksgiving. Hiked, played games, cooked, laughed, caught up on sleep. Quiet location. Kitchen had everything we needed for cooking for 10. Plenty of comfortable beds. Well-appointed bathrooms. Our favorite room was the sun-porch with the view. We hope to return.
