About Dan Heard

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.

Dan Heard purchased this house in 2014

Why Dan Heard chose Estes Park

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.

Very nice house and property. Very quiet. Loved the sun porch in the back of the house.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house and property were very nice and of the 30 trips we have made to Estes the beds were the best. Would recommend this house to anyone going to Estes.

Amazing property with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rivendell. The entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is less than a 5 minute drive. We had elk, deer, and turkeys on the property every day of our stay. The house is spacious and well stocked. The views from the decks are amazing.

Great home in beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Large home in gorgeous setting. Fit our party of 5 adults and 4 children well. Very well appointed kitchen. Beautiful views of the mountains, especially from balconies. Good location near RMNP but away from congestion of Estes Park. Many locales within the house for individuals or small groups to converse, read,

play games. One problem: Satelite TV signal did not work. Also dozens of light switches confusing to figure out; should be labeled. Lacks sufficient smoke detectors, especially in bedrooms. But overall we loved the house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at Rivendell. We hope you made lots of great memories with your family. Unfortunately during your stay the weather may have contributed to poor satellite reception. We do have smoke detectors in all bedroom and the town/county completed an inspection prior to the rental season to ensure they were up to snuff. Please come back again.
