Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, 1850 ft.², Large Deck, sleeps 12

We felt so fortunate to have this little piece of paradise that we decided to share with others. This charming cottage sleep 12 in beds and is one of three homes on the Estate at Fish Creek. All three properties together sleep nearly 42 people in beds, a wonderful opportunity for family get-togethers. We have built/remodeled/updated to melt rustic and luxury together while embracing quality craftsmanship. Our home 'Newly remodeled' is the perfect spot for your getaway! With 2 levels, there is plenty of space to be together, and plenty of space to have a little quiet time away from the rest. Check out the other 2 on VRBO #653697 and #573004

Main level, new kitchen with all the bells and whistles... large dining room table in the great room, two couches, one has a queen sofa bed with memory foam mattress, additional seating, game table and chairs, two queen bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms, and large windows with spectacular views of the snowcapped mountains and surrounding vistas...

The upper level has 2 queen bedrooms, one with a trundle bed, both have large windows for fabulous views. Also, a charming half bath with the best view in the house!

The location is close enough to Estes Park (a few minutes away) to enjoy it's mountain charm, and just a short walk to the 18 hole golf course, and yet far enough away to be a quiet refuge.

Our home (and everything in it) is top quality, clean, and comfortable! All the furnishings were purchased with quality and comfort in mind. All of the bed linens and towels are luxurious and top quality, All new Serta Presidential Suite mattresses. We have outfitted the kitchen with the best of everything - and everything we could think of...

'Vista View Cottage' feels secluded but is just minutes from everything you'd want to do. It is complete with WiFi internet, stack washer and dryer, beautifully decorated to create a cozy relaxing atmosphere, did I tell you about the fantastic views? ....and is ready for you and your family to enjoy time after time.

About Jody Lockhart

My wife and I are from a warmer and more humid part of North America, our children are grown and we enjoy the flexibility of travel to a cooler climate. Estes Park is one of the best-kept secrets in the country. We feel so fortunate to have stumbled across this beautiful landscape!

Jody Lockhart purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Jody Lockhart chose Front Range

We had traveled to beautiful Estes Park many times over the years, and decided it was time for us to own our own piece of paradise, we purchased our first property in 1980, since then when an adjacent parcel became available, we continued to add to our 'Little World'. We are so fortunate to have the benefits of tremendous views of the golf course, snowcapped mountains and overlook the peaceful waters of fish creek.

Terrific views and saw animals every day

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week with kids and grand kids. The views from the desk were fabulous. We saw elk and/or deer every day. (You have to get up pretty early in the morning to see them.) We also saw some wild turkeys up the hill and a bald eagle down by the lake. The weather was just right- sunny and warm almost every day. The house was nicely furnished and the kitchen appliances were fairly new and all stainless. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and blankets. Very well equipped kitchen with all of the utensils and pots and pans that you would need. Easy access into Estes Park but high enough on the hill to be away from almost all of the road noise. I wish they had more than one TV though. With a large group of people, the single TV in the living room wasn't really adequate. An umbrella or some form of shade on the deck would also be nice. Even though the weather was cool, the sun was strong and the deck was almost unusable for several hours in the afternoon. The entire family had a great time and I would highly recommend this "cottage".

The cabin was very nice and updated! We loved seeing the wildlife in the meadow, like Elk and Deer, it was very cool! The rooms and beds were comfy and nice as well! The cabin had a peaceful surrounding with great views of the mountains!

Estes House

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely fantastic! We loved how it was close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough removed for privacy and space. The meadow surrounding the house was stunning and home to many animals my children loved seeing each day. The views from all rooms were also beautiful. There is a very nice deck, which was perfect for summer afternoons and evenings. It allowed for us to relax and let my children play in the field. Something they don't get to do much of at home and loved the freedom of!

The house was very clean and well supplied. We had everything we needed and if we were in need of something, the property manager, Jody, was very happy to help and quick to respond.The beds were very comfortable. (Something that made us all very happy!) I was also surprised at how comfortably 10 of us fit in the house. We never felt crowded or on top of each other. Overall, wonderful property and experience. We will definitely stay again!

Wonderful home, wonderfully managed

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten stayed here in celebration of my father-in-law's retirement and couldn't have been more pleased. Not only was the home quiet and private with beautiful views, but it was only a short drive to all the hustle and bustle of downtown Estes Park. We were perfectly removed from everything while still having the easy access we needed. We used the grill several times, watched elk walk through the yard, observed several different beautiful birds, and the kids LOVED having the freedom to run. In addition to the home being beautifully kept, Jody, the property manager, was spectacular. She was easy to get in touch with and saved the day by bringing an extra large cooking pot for chili within minutes of us asking for one. She helped us with our trash and was very handy with an Allen wrench ;) Jody, you are doing a great job! All in all, we couldn't have felt more comfortable. This home was perfect for our group and I am confident it will be for your's too.

Great family reunion location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house. It had ample room for all of us and the views were incredible. We saw wild turkeys and a huge bull elk while we were there....so cool! Wayne was incredibly responsive when needed for road advice or trash removal. All in all, a great weekend get away!

About mid-September, the balcony is your front row seat as the Aspen turn the Mountainsides into a shimmering gold and sounds of mating calls fill the air... Elk watching is a very popular at “Vista View Cottage” as we boast having hundreds of elk within a stones throw. Golfing just two football fields away and all the awesome activities associated with being in Estes Park the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park!
