About Heidi Welsch

We currently live in Minnesota. We have two children - one in college and one in high school. Our next chapter will be in Estes Park!

Heidi Welsch purchased this house in 2014

Why Heidi Welsch chose Estes Park

We were seeking a private mountain home in Estes Park, centrally located, within town limits with easy access to RMNP, downtown, and all of the local attractions. We fell in love right away and knew this was the one!! The size and construction of the huge logs captivated us. We value our privacy and appreciate the very private setting of our new home!

What makes this house unique

We hope you will love the rustic charm and modern day amenities with awesome mountain views and, of course, a hot tub for relaxing those muscles after a full day of hiking or shopping.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what our family was looking for during our stay in Estes Park! The location was perfect...private and remote enough so that we were able to see lots of wildlife, yet minutes away from town if we were wanting to dine out, hit the shops, or go to the grocery store. It was very clean and included all of the furnishings and amenities we needed. It truly felt like our home away from home. Also, Heidi was just a phone call or text away when we needed something. If we return to Estes Park, this would be my first choice when booking our accommodations. Thanks for helping make our vacation wonderful!

Lovely, comfortable, nicely appointed home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy our stay in this home. It's location was off the beaten path--and therefore quiet--but 10 min from the grocery store and center of town. The hot tub is the icing on the cake!

The main living area and master bedroom/bath have vaulted ceilings and great views of the mountains. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make our meals at home, and the grill on the porch added to that. The deck around the upper level provides a great space to enjoy the sunsets over the mountains and additional space to enjoy nature.

Downstairs is 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Beds are comfortable, linens nice, blankets warm and bathrooms nicely done. Plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable.

Two quirks to be aware of, but they definitely wouldn't prevent us from returning, this would be our first choice when we return to the area....

*The master bedroom/bath/powder room walls only go up 9-10', not to the vaulted ceiling, so sound can go from the living area to the bedroom and vice versa.

*The roofing panels pop with temperature changes (thankfully the owner warned of this in the welcome materials). It can be a bit unsettling until you get used to it. Again, not a deal breaker by any stretch of the imagination, just unexpected.

Wish I could post some of the pics we took from the deck, the views are beautiful! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the home, my family said, "The pictures don't do it justice!" Meaning, it was so much more than the pictures showed. Our family each had their own bedroom and bath, perfect for families with children. The kitchen was wonderful. The deck was a favorite, sitting and viewing the mountains. It doesn't get any better than this!!

Amazing beautiful clean home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Clean, secluded, and beautiful wild life. We decided to stay extra 2 days because this house was so nice. The hot tub is amazing! Everything is up to date and organized. We will be back.

Winter in the Rocky Mountain spring

  • 4 of 5

My wife, son and I enjoyed the experience of renting this log home in Estes Park. It is a beautiful log home. We were impressed and appreciative of all the amenities the home is furnished with. Especially all the wood work throughout the home. The property owners have gone to a lot of thought and expense to equip the home well and make it comfortable.

Expect to see a lot of deer! We were very fortunate to get out of the mountains with the snow that fell in mid-May! Suggest a 4WD drive vehicle to anyone visiting during the snow season.

We left the home in better shape than we found it. The property was essentially clean, tidy and in good working order... but we wonder if it would have met the property owner's standards?

Property owner seemed a tad slow or unconcerned in responding to reasonable questions or suggestions for improvement for the benefit of future guests.

Overall this is a beautiful log home in a private, but not secluded area of residential Estes Park to call home base for exploring Rocky Mountain National Park.
