Property description

Outstanding newer home just minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. Relax on the deck and enjoy breathtaking views of Twin Sisters and Estes Cone. Don't expect to enjoy the views alone - deer, elk and a variety of birds frequently visit. If you are feeling more active, walk out through the backyard and pick up the Prospect Mountain hiking trail to enjoy a 360 degree view of Estes Park, RMNP and the Continental Divide.

The 4 bedroom, 3 bath home includes a spacious open living, dining and kitchen area. Don't worry about going over your checked bag allowance because the home has a laundry room with newer front loading washer and dryer. Directv, wireless internet service, and local calls are also included with your rental.

When you aren't exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, the town of Estes Park is just 3 miles away. Enjoy shopping, restaurants and bars. Most weekends, you can head down to Bond Park to enjoy one of the many festivals. Visit the Stanley Hotel to see for yourself the inspiration for The Shining, or head to the hotel's whiskey bar to sample one of the best selections of whiskey in Colorado.

Summer might be the most popular time to visit Rocky Mountain National Park, but all four seasons have something special to offer. Summer opens up the whole park for hiking, driving over Trail Ridge Road, or flyfishing. Fall is a photographer's heaven with the spectacular autumn colors and the elk bugling all through the park and downtown. Winter opens up a new playground, with snowshoeing, cross / back country skiing, access to the Eldora ski area, and no crowds.

Please note that I only accept reservations for a maximum of 8 guests.

Car: Recommended

A short drive and you are in Rocky Mountain National Park, with hundreds of miles of hiking trails, backcountry campsites, wildlife viewing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and backcountry skiing. There is something to do year round. The town of Estes Park features a festival most weekends, a beautiful downtown with restaurants and shops, and Lake Estes where you can go for a jog or rent a paddle boat.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Sometime during the last decade I developed a wanderlust. I love to travel and my job keeps me moving around the globe. Through my journey, I found that my favorite place to be is lost in the mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Sunny Hills (Estes Park, CO, USA):
In 2013, my wandering brought me to Estes Park for a couple of months and fell in love with Rocky Mountain National Park. RMNP kept a special place in my heart as I continued to move around and live out of a storage unit. When I decided it was time set down roots somewhere, Estes Park was the only town on the list. Until I can enjoy my home full time, I invite you to make this your home base for your vacation and I hope that you fall in love with Estes and RMNP like I did.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The close proximity to RMNP and Estes Park. The views from the front porch. Being able to walk out my door, and enjoy a 1 hour hike to the top of Prospect Mountain without having to set foot in a car.
