About Susan Medak
Our parents bought this house when it was under construction in 1968 and it has been in our family ever since. For four generations we've been coming out here, bringing children and friends. We now live all over the country but we still come back here at least once a year. While our parents weren't serious hikers, each generation has become more adventuresome, moving from hiking the creek and stream trails to the lakes and then the Peaks. Nearby, Long's Peak, one of Colorado's famous 14,000 ft peaks is just down the road. Although we have finally succumbed to the technological demands of the 21st century and can watch TV and movies, or telecommute to work, what we all love the most is the ability to spend quiet time with each other just reading, looking out the windows, doing puzzles or just talking. Whether the sun is shining or there is rain or snow, this just always seems to be the place we want to be. And we've loved sharing it with others. Having traveled all over the world, we think the Rocky Mountains are among the most beautiful anywhere.

Why Susan Medak chose Allenspark
We first encountered this area when we took our family car trip from Chicago to Southern California. We stopped for a night in Estes Park and fell in love with these magnificent mountains. After renting cabins for ten years, we finally realized we wanted a little more solitude than Estes could offer and bought this house in the Meeker Park area. In 2001, we bought a second house up the hill from this one so that we could accommodate the sometimes 20 plus family members who all seemed to want to spend time with each other. Part of the attraction is the ability to simply walk across the road to be in the National Park, the ability to walk out the door and find a day hike in almost any direction. We have access to Estes without having to be in the middle of it all the time!
What makes this House unique
Over the years, we've improved the house so that it now has plenty of windows and new paneling that is reclaimed from the pine beetle devastation. The unique blue staining from those trees has only recently come to be seen for its beautiful decorative value. It gives the house a warm and distinctive interior. Behind the house is a rock formation that will keep your kids endlessly busy as they 'explore' the area within eyesight of the house. The house also happens to be just about 10 minutes from an excellent diner (great homemade bread!) for breakfast and lunch.
