Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was clean, spacious and had a lovely view of Lake Estes from the deck. Our family reunion group enjoyed the Stanley Hotel tour, pontoon ride on the lake, and all Rocky Mountain National Park has to offer.

Excellent family mountain house in a quiet peaceful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous mountain house for our family of 6. So many great things but what stuck with us most was 1) The location 2) the view 3) the back patio with the hot tub which was wonderful for late night stargazing and early morning coffee 4) the perfect floor plan of the main floor for a family of six - the kitchen/dining area and family room allowed us all to relax with plenty of seating, cooking and dining space. The house is equipped with everything you need for the stay - the only thing you'll need to purchase are your groceries and toiletries. We don't expect super fancy decor - it was definitely a little "dated" but - so cozy and welcoming it made you feel like you could really relax and not have to worry about "messing anything up" that was too fancy. We will definitely be looking this property up again on our next vist. For families with small children - the master bedroom is on the main floor with the remaining bedrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom is HUGE and would definitely allow for a pack and play if needed. Our kids are all teenagers/college so it was no problem for us.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the house as much as I do when I visit. I was there late September and added a new leather sofa and recliner chair which are very comfortable and they even have a portal to charge up electronic devices!

The property was exactly as described. Plenty of room for us.

  • 5 of 5

This house was great. We were in Estes Park for a wedding at The Stanley. It was nice to be in a house but still be close enough to the venue. There was the perfect amount of room in the house for us. The bunk room was perfect for my family of 4. All of the kids really enjoyed the toys. We even got to see some wildlife while at the house. It was better than I expected and the binder with info about the owner and things to do around estes Park was a nice touch. Highly recommended!

Served our purpose

The house was fine but was very outdated and not especially clean. The wifi was down the entire weekend.

Underwhelmed, Uncomfortable, and Harassed by “Estes Park Central – Police? Or Security?”

  • 1 of 5

This house is large and could be very comfortable if some improvements would be done. Our first problem was the filthy bathroom rugs. All of the rugs and carpeting need a good cleaning, or need to be replaced. The upstairs bathroom is old, stained & the shower curtain needs changed. Our small dog made us realize how filthy under the beds and couch were – candy, jaw breakers, gum, tons of hair and dust and dirt. Housekeeping needs to remember to vacuum under furniture between renters. I called and requested some additional towels (We were given one towel each - it would be nice to have a bath towel and a towel to use the hot tub.) I was told no – we should wash them? There are 8 people in our family, and I felt that was ridiculous to expect us to have only one towel each for 7 days and no extra towel for using the hot tub. I requested dish cloths to wash dishes also. Mickey from housekeeping responded very quickly. She did come over and resolved our bath towel issue. Our next big problem was that the Hot Tub was dangerous. The Bromine level was so high it could have caused serious health problems. The sheets on the twin bunk bed were very scratchy & caused an itchy rash. The beds are certainly due for new mattresses - they are old and a bit saggy. There are no window shades on dining room window, this is difficult with the sunshine during the day, and no privacy at night. The kitchen could certainly use some newer and more useful utensils and some large serving spoons. We were able to make do with what we had, but not very easy. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon and were willing to just deal with the situation. We cleaned and worked with what we had in the kitchen. The final problem came on Saturday December 31st. Two people came to the door, and one claimed to be a police officer. My daughter went to the door, and was questioned about the number of people staying at the house – there are 8 of us. The two men told my daughter that a neighbor complained that there were too many people at the house. This seemed very strange to us. My husband also spoke with the men, and then they claimed to be security or maintenance personnel with Estes Park Central. So this made us all very uncomfortable, and paranoid of the neighbors, as if they were spying in on us in the dining room with no window covering.

Not as Relaxing as I Wanted.
