About John & Sandy Gilfillan

We moved to Estes Park in 1992 to build and operate The Woodlands on Fall River Suites and RiverWood on Fall River Condominiums. Sandy actually has been coming to Estes Park from Nebraska since she was a baby (way too many years to mention).

This has been our primary home in Estes Park for several years. However, our grandchildren increased in number to the point that we required a larger home in Estes, thus the decision to rent our Audubon house.

John & Sandy Gilfillan purchased this house in 1996

Why John & Sandy Gilfillan chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We built this home to take advantage of its wonderful mountain views, Blue Spruce & Ponderosa trees, huge rock outcroppings and half-acre mountainside lot.

What makes this house unique

The home offers great amenities, views and gives guests the opportunity to enjoy one of America's best vacation locations while having the advantage of staying in a private home and not a motel or a hotel. Also, this property allows you to walk to town while still enjoying a private sanctuary among the rocks and ponderosa. It is easier to walk down the mountain to town than the trip back up the mountain.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Our Guest Book: "Even the highest of expectations would be exceeded by the place you have here. It is a perfect blend of beautiful views and convenience to everything."

Great RMNP stay!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a wonderful property.

John and Sandy were extremely punctual with all communication, going beyond the normal owner outreach with a phone call the last day of our stay thanking us and confirming all was to our expectations.

The house was immaculately kept, well provisioned, and comfortably appointed.

The location, within walking distance of town, yet well enough removed from the tourist congestion, suited us perfectly.

The quiet neighborhood, sited just above the river, provided terrific mountain vistas to the west, as well as, a nice view overlooking town.

We have been renting vacation properties for over 25 years, and this proved as good an experience as we have ever enjoyed.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely gorgeous and pristine! The owners are very nice and have done a fantastic job of making this house feel like a home. Our family of 5 was very comfortable during our stay. The house's location is convenient to downtown Estes Park as well as the RMNP. We had a wonderful week in Colorado - thank you, John and Sandy!

This was a perfect rental for us to share with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons.

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for us to each have our own space and loved having three bathrooms! The location offered beautiful views and such easy proximity to town, shopping and restaurants. We ate out most of the time, but the breakfast we did cook was easy with all of the provided pans, utensils, etc. We enjoyed down time on the deck, as well as the comfortable living room. We give it five stars! Nancy Berry

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in Estes. Our location, all though close to town was up on a hill and very peaceful and quite. The cabin was spacious and furnished very well. You really do have exceptional views from every window and a great deck. We spent our days exploring Rocky Mt. National Park and our evenings relaxing in a place we thought of as 'home for the 7 days we stayed. We are looking forward to coming back again some day. Having the garage for storage of all of our hiking and biking equipment was a nice plus. Thanks for everything, the Bohurjaks!
