Amazing Rental for an Amazing Trip
My wife and I cannot say enough about how wonderful this location was for our RMNP trip. The location is great being only a few minutes from everything including the park entrance. Walking in my first impression was wow this place is nice. My second impression was when I looked out the window from the living room and saw Long's Peak directly in view and thought, "holy cow you have got to be kidding me!?!" Thirdly, the place was immaculately clean and the furnishings were first class. When we checked out the upstairs our little girl immediately found all the teddy bears whiched she loved. The river directly out back was amazing for both the sound and the serenity it provided every morning and evening. Watching the elk directly from back porch was also amazing. We sat one night literally for over an hour watching the dominant male chase off 3 intruding lesser bulls from his harem of lady friends. We will DEFINITELY BE BACK. Thank you so much to the owners for providing this location!
We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed our home and it’s serenity. What an amazing experience watching the bull elk! We hope you can come back and visit soon.
Perfect location and amazing views!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We are a family of 4, with kids ages 4 and 15. Waking up to the breathtaking views and fresh coffee was wonderful. We fished in the river multiple times and caught rainbow trout. We saw deer, mink, turkeys and many hummingbirds. We felt at home from the time we arrived and will definitely be back.
Glad you enjoyed the critters and beautiful views. We hope you and your family can come back and stay with us again soon!
Very comfortable, scenic, and peaceful vacation home
Our group of 5 adult family members had a great stay at this duplex condo along the Big Thompson River. The home was spacious and spotlessly clean. The furniture was very comfortable and the condo was decorated in a very tasteful way with plenty of artwork and photography. It was also very nicely furnished with plenty of kitchen items, games, books, and puzzles. We cooked in the kitchen a few evenings and it was spacious enough for 3 people to be working in at a time. The kitchen table is photographed with 6 seats but there are actually 2 other matching chairs available.
I was a little concerned about not having air conditioning, being from a hot part of the lower Midwest, but at night it was cooling down to the low 50s and day time highs in mid-August were in the 70s, so we did not miss AC at all. In fact, it was cool enough we kept windows open on the river side so we could hear the peaceful sound of the river rushing over rocks, which was a great way to fall asleep. There was a gas fireplace with a switch to turn on, which we used for a couple hours on the coolest evening.
The river is about 25 feet from the back railing of the deck, and the condo has great view of the curve of the river, with Longs Peak in the background, just as depicted in the online photos. It was really the most scenic view, and the location was peaceful about 5 minutes from both RMNP and shopping in Estes.
The deck was a nice place to sit and enjoy the view and sound of the river. There were two rocking chairs and about 4 other chairs out there, plus a small table and grill. There was a nice level area behind the deck with lush grass that was pleasant to walk around. However, when we were there in mid-August, the river was several feet deep with a strong current by our lawn area, so kids should be supervised. It's not a wading stream on that side of the river close to the condo. However, there were some boulders you could sit on if you carefully stepped down the bank to dip your feet in the cold but refreshing water.
We particularly enjoyed the views of Longs Peak at different times of the day, from the first morning sun hitting it to evening sunlight angling across part of the peak. We also really appreciated the green space and large green hills across the river from where we were staying.
Beds, sheets, and blankets were very comfortable. Overall, it was a great place to stay and I highly recommend it!
Thank you so much for your review! We are happy to hear that you were comfortable, enjoyed the amenities, and appreciated the peaceful river and mountains. We hope you can stay with us again soon!
The condo was exactly what we were expecting. Comfortable atmosphere, all the amenities and most importantly the beautiful view from the back deck. Great location as well.
So happy to hear you were comfortable and enjoyed the beautiful view. We hope you can come back and stay with us soon!
