About the property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

City of Estes Park Registration 3033

Why stay in the same old cabin or condo when you can stay in our beautiful, clean and unique A-Frame surrounded by trees and abundant with wildlife.

The location of this home is perfect for your Estes vacation. It is located in a very quiet collection of a few cabins just a few minutes hike into Rocky Mountain National Park or the the YMCA property and a 1.5 mile drive to Downtown or the Beaver Meadows entrance into RMNP . You can also walk to the very popular Dunraven Italian Restaurant (the one off Hwy 66).

You will have a marvelous Rocky Mountain vacation in this clean, quiet, fully appointed vacation home. We have two bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a balcony where you can hear the Big Thompson River through the trees. The second bedroom has a full size bed. Downstairs is tastefully decorated with newer furniture with a pull-out queen and pull-out twin bed. Downstairs is great for kids to sleep in while the grown-ups sleep quietly upstairs.

We have a brand new remodeled full kitchen w/ gas stove, dishwasher and microwave. We also have a newer full sized washer and dryer too.

You can relax and read a book by the wood-burning stove, watch DVD's on the TV (we have a large selection of DVD's stocked), play classic Atari video games or sit on the front or back porches and watch the elk, deer, bears, foxes, coyotes, wild turkeys, rabbits, hummingbirds etc. that are frequently seen on the property.

If you want to hike, this is the location for you. You can hike into Rocky Mountain National Park along the picturesque boulder strewn Big Thompson River and be in the Moraine Park area (prime fishing and elk viewing area) in about 15 minutes. You can also hike along Glacier Creek for more fishing and beautiful trails. The YMCA has numerous trails where mountain biking is allowed. We are close to quite a few restaurants, shopping, horseback riding, fishing, miniature golf and all that Estes has to offer on Highway 66 (Tunnel Rd) into downtown Estes.

About Andrea or Stephen Velasco

Sales person extraordinaire. Mother. Skier. Hiker. Dog lover.

Andrea or Stephen Velasco purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Andrea or Stephen Velasco chose Estes Park

We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it. We have always loved Estes Park, and wanted our own little piece of it to enjoy. We love being able to easily hike into the park. The wildlife in the immediate area is abundant. The balcony off the bedroom is fantastic for sitting outside with a cup of coffee listening to the roar of the water nearby. We have always loved the unique look of an A-Frame. It's like owning a Harley or an Airstream. Why have a home like everyone else!

What makes this chalet unique

Walk into the RMNP Morraine Park area. Walk to the best restaurant in Estes Park - The Dunraven. Enjoy local wildlife.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Had family of three and a mother-in-law. Everyone had their own space which was wonderful. The location is close enough to town getting there is easy, and there are enough businesses south of town, closer to the home, if you want to avoid Estes Park traffic. Easy entrance to the park and trailheads. Lots of wildlife around so keep your eyes out. Awesome classic movies to watch on the DVD player, our 20 year old son watched "One flew over the Cuckoos Nest," it is now one of his all-time favorites.

Can't thank the Valescos enough - great at answering questions, and the house it wonderfully decorated and homey, and just what we needed for a week away from the day-to-day grind.

My family had a wonderful experience at the Estes Park a-frame and were sorry to leave.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights at the cabin and enjoyed the convenient location that is also off the beaten track. We hiked in RMNP, read on the front porch, watched movies, played games, and ate really good food. We didn't cook a lot, but would have if our stay was longer because the kitchen was well-equiped. Estes is a beautiful place to unwind and this cabin would make it possible to avoid the crowds of the town altogether if one wanted to. However we enjoyed shopping and the old mini golf place near Marys Lake road for entertainment. The two beds in the cabin were very comfortable, but the pull out beds less so.

There really wasnt anything we lacked and there was plenty of space for us to find solitary moments. We hope to return for a longer trip soon and appreciated a clean, comfortable, and charming place to go back to after a day of hiking.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for your review and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay in our cozy A-Frame. We are going to replace the mattresses on the pull out beds with memory foam mattresses this year, so thank you for the reminder! We look forward to having you as guests again in the future. - Andrea Velasco

Perfect Honeymoon Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our honeymoon. We loved the views and wildlife. It is packed away just enough for privacy but not to far from town. This is the ideal location to disconnect from a busy life and just get away. We can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: So glad our home was perfect for your honeymoon. We would love to have you back.

Mountain Simplicity

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at this adorable hidden A frame. There were five of us and it was perfect. Everything we needed was there for us and to get into town was easy as well. The best was that the entrance into the Rocky Mountain National Park was right down the road and along with that came plenty of animal sightings. We would definitely stay again. Thank you Andrea and Stephen!!
