About Darren

Growing up, both of our families enjoyed many vacations to the Rocky Mountains. As a couple, our first vacation was to Estes Park, and we have been back many times with our sons making wonderful memories. When we had the opportunity to purchase a vacation home it was only natural that we considered Estes Park as our home away from home.

Darren purchased this house in 2016

Why Darren chose Estes Park

After searching with our real estate agent looking at the various properties we began to wonder if we would find the "right" house that had everything we were looking for. The moment we walked through the front door we knew that this was the perfect house for us. It felt like home.

What makes this house unique

Our home is uniquely situated in Estes Park. It is 5 minutes to the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. You can also reach down town Estes Park in about 5 minutes. We are located near the historic Mary's Lake Lodge and have breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found Ann's Chalet to be ideally situated for many, many reasons. The beautiful home is conveniently located away from bustle but close to attractions and stores. The accommodations were perfectly appointed, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and the views fantastic. We enjoyed wonderful family time while staying evenings and nights- and hiked the Rockies close-by during the day. The kitchen had every necessity, and we were able to enter via garage, where our car was parked at night.

Darren communicated with us proactively, remained available to us even when he was on a personal vacation, and really instilled confidence in our choice to stay here- every step of the way. We lived with gusto and left with gratitude, hoping to be afforded another chance to stay here when visiting Estes Park in the future.

Perfectly beautiful inside and outside!

  • 5 of 5

Darren's house surpassed our expectations a million times! The house is furnished upscale and everything you need is there. We were very comfortable there and there was plenty of room for us all. Other people who were with our party stayed elsewhere but ended up coming over and enjoying the house and views with us when we had downtime. The view was incredible! The lake and mountains were framed perfectly by the large window in the family room and we enjoyed just sitting and looking out. Every room had a wonderful view and the serenity was very welcome as we were there for our daughters' wedding (a time that would normally be very stressful). All went off without a hitch and we attribute that to the wonderful accommodations! Thank you, Darren!

Beautiful location and beautiful home

So convenient to access the park. The house was more beautiful than the pictures showed. We got up every morning to watch the sun rise over the mountains. Will be back again.

Perfect in every respect: 10 out of 10 on each and every facet (even the little ones)!

  • 5 of 5

Cleanliness: 10/10. The entire house was spotless including the garage.

Amenities: 10/10. Everything, and I mean everything, we could have needed was there (including a mountain cookbook!)

Instruction clarity: 10/10. Check-in and check-out were a breeze given the detailed instructions we received. Suggested restaurants and places to see were included.

Comfort: 10/10. The beds were amazingly comfortable, the best we've had in several years of renting. Temperature control throughout the house was even. Ceiling fans in most rooms helped a lot.

Ease of use: 10/10. Electronic locks made (losing and sharing) keys unnecessary. Sharing the home with several people was extremely easy because everyone could be on their schedule without concern for who had the keys or where they were.

Location: 10/10. Located in a beautiful, low traffic, residential area near Mary's Lake Lodge. Easy to get to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. The view off the deck was amazing.

Technology: 10/10. Wireless Internet was flawless and a cinch to setup. The only glitch was an easily-fixed Windows 10 issue which set the wireless network to public. TV reception was perfect.

Owner: 10/10. I saved the best for last because it's so critically important to a successful rental. The owner was a perfect gentleman in every respect: communication, willingness to help, flexibility regarding accommodations and especially honesty. We got exactly what was advertised. I never felt anything would be/was amiss. Even better, I truly believed if anything should arise, it would be handled as professionally and courteously as the booking arrangements. That's something priceless when your vacation is at stake. This rental was the most stress-free, reliable and fulfilling property at which we've ever stayed. We can't wait for our next visit. Thank you!!

All around wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough positive things about our stay at Ann’s Challet. First off, Darren was extremely helpful in ensuring that we had everything we needed prior to our arrival. The house itself is super cute and has all the amenities you could need. It has a fully stocked kitchen including tons of spices for cooking. The hand book he put together is extremely thorough in explaining where everything in the house is and how to use various appliances. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are sufficiently dark at night so that falling asleep is no problem. I would return in a heartbeat.
