About the property

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

Registration #3275

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 Estes Park

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.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room. The open space allowed for our family to take in the environment including wildlife! We would use this property again if it would work out.

A Cottage With A View!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay in Estes Park! This property had beautiful views! It was very quiet but still real close to Estes Park. We had our family vacation here. The cottage sleeps 11 people comfortably. It is an open and comfortable place, so everyone could relax be together and hear all that was said. It has a big table off the kitchen, so we could all sit together for our meals. This cottage helped facilitate some priceless family moments on our vacation! The property manager, Jody Lockhart, was very helpful before, during and after our stay here. She is very prompt and friendly. If our family vacations in Estes Park again, we will definitely try to book this property again.

Comfortable Quiet Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time together in this quiet setting. It was a first visit to Colorado for a few in our family of 9, and we found the setting beautiful. Estes Park was full of tourists so we spent lots of time in the cottage cooking and playing games etc. The mountains are beautiful and their color changes throughout the day! We especially enjoyed the elk herd that grazed in the meadow near the house. We sat quietly on the deck and watched them. White water river rafting was a highlight, along with the Trail Ridge drive in RMNP. We loved our time in Colorado and our stay in the cozy cottage.

Wonderful place to stay while on vacation in Estes Park!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage! We had a large group, but we all fit comfortably and had room to spread out. The house was very accomodating, with several bedrooms, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms, and amazing views. It was nice to have a place outside of town, making mornings and evenings quiet and peaceful - but it was only about a 5 minute drive to all the action of downtown and 10 minutes to the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book this home again for any future visits. Also, Jody was great to work with and always very helpful.

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!
