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 Carriage Hills

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.

                                                              We had a wonderful holiday getaway in this house in Estes Park. Very clean with all of the necessary amenities and great views.

                                                              Beautiful home- lovely town!

                                                              Valerie H.

                                                              Lots of space- beautiful home! If you are here in the winter you’ll want to be in 4 wheel drive the drive way can be slick.

                                                              Absolutely loved it!!

                                                              Although they don't consider shorter people with their mirrors and we prefer daylight lighting. It's an absolutely beautiful place to get away. Waking up to deer and elk was a site to see for someone who loves the outdoors and taking pictures. The home was just what we were looking for. I will say at first driving in we felt disappointment because of the location. But that turned out not to be an issue AT ALL! It is very peaceful and quiet. The view is actually very amazing. Too bad there isn't an upload option to download pictures. If we ever decide to go back to Colorado we will definitely rent again.

                                                              Lovely cabin

                                                              The cabin is very nice and modern. Views of the mountains are beautiful. Very easy access to town. The hot tub was not functioning when we arrived, but owners arranged for repair while we were there. The hot tub was still pretty dirty, even after the fix. Also just FYI—this cabin has several close neighbors. The walls in the master bedroom and both baths on main level do not go to the ceiling, so this does not provide quiet/privacy between these rooms and the main entertaining area and kitchen.

                                                              Beautiful Vacation Home

                                                              We truly enjoyed this vacation home. Very comfortable and spacious. The hot tub was very nice. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. The WiFi worked well. We saw mule deer out in the yard each day. Beautiful views from the deck. Easy to get to from Estes Park. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                              A great log cabin feel but close to town
