About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

You will feel right at home in this beautiful post and beam craftsman home on 2.5 acres located just minutes from downtown Estes Park.

As you pull up the driveway, you will take in the views of the crags of the Twin Sisters, one of the many mountain ranges in Rocky Mountain National Park. Once you pass through the front door those views are beautifully framed in the floor-to-ceiling windows of the great room. A wood-burning stove in the great room is stocked with wood and ready to go. A perfect way to the take the chill off on those fall, winter and cool spring nights. The dining room table, also in the great room, is ready for a gathering of family and friends as the table seats 6-8 comfortably.

Adjacent to the great room is my favorite room in the home, the Scarlet Lounge, a sitting area adjacent to the kitchen. It is the space where you sit, relax and enjoy a morning tea or coffee and a nice glass of wine with appetizers at night. The kitchen comes complete with all new appliances, essential cooking supplies and is fully stocked with spices.

The main floor also is home to another sitting area that welcomes a good book and a cup of tea while taking in the views. This space also includes a table for 4 that is inviting for a family game of scrabble or a puzzle along with a desk to set up a computer for those working and traveling. A printer is available for printing boarding passes.

The main floor master suite with a queen-size bed boasts a sitting area and en suite. Enjoy a bubble bath in the Jacuzzi tub after a long day of hiking or snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park. An adjacent bedroom, with queen-size bed, awakens you with large picture windows and the sounds of elk bugling in the fall and winter. The main floor bath is complete with a full-size bath with sky light, pottery sink and washer/dryer.

As you walk down the stairs to the lower level you will take in a large master bedroom with en suite which includes a sitting area complete with pull-out couch with a pillow-top for extra comfort, TV, Wii and walk-out patio; a space that welcomes 2 people or a small family.

The outdoor vantage from the upper or lower decks encompass expansive views of the Rocky Mountains which are ever changing with the seasons. Whether it is a blanket of snow in the winter, splashes of yellow aspens in the fall or wildflowers in the spring and summer, this view is a true gem.

We have enjoyed many homes on our travels and strive to provide you with all that you will need for your relaxing get away.

We are walking distance to a moderately ambitious trail that leads you up to the Ballpate Inn where a well-earned lunch or dinner can be had before making your way back home. You are also minutes away from down-town Estes Park and Rocky Mountain Park where endless memories are waiting.

Sunny, Peaceful, Well Managed

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The owners are very attentive and went out of their way to help prepare for our infant who was traveling with us.

The property itself is sunny, private, quiet, and peaceful. We were a short drive from all the Estes Park top hot spots without the traffic and crowding we usually run into. I highly recommend this rental house!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this place the moment we walked through the door. The Southern wall of the main room is entirely windows for a full-time view of Twin Sister’s East peak. The lower level master suite matches the main room’s view. Ever thing, except the master suite, is on the main level with 2 bedrooms, one with a bath, laundry, a study with the same view as the main room and the kitchen. The deck wraps around the East and South sides of the main room and is perfect for star gazing. Take your telescope and cameras, we did. We took some time lapse and composite images of the star and where treated to watching Jupiter’s moon change positions on a nightly basis. About 4 miles South of the main intersection of Estes Park and nestled between several of the local mounts, it is quiet and away from the sometimes crowed center of EP. Far enough South that you can bypass EP via Mary's Lake Rd to get to RMNP. During our stay, there was a constant presence of migrating elk in the meadows across the road, including the group of 40+ that walked up the driveway our first night. The house is well stocked with books and games. The galley style kitchen also is equipped for any kind of cooking you might want to do. There is a wood burning stove insert in the main room for an indoor fires and hopefully sometime soon conditions in the area will improve to allow the use of the outdoors fire pit. We spent our mornings exploring the area and afternoon shopping in EP to return here to put up our feet and sip after dinner drinks while watching the wildlife and sunset on the peaks. Thank you, Janelle, and Joe for making you beautiful home available. We hope to return soon.

Perfect Vacation Home for both grandparents and children.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for a week with our daughter, her husband and their two children, ages 7 and 4. The home was spacious and well maintained. It was dirt free and rodent free. The decorating was delightful and we enjoyed time inside and on the deck and patios. The website photos are accurate. The house is well laid out.

There were plenty of games for the children and areas for reading, game playing and conversation.

We would definitely recommend this home.

Beautiful and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the lovely home with beautiful views. Wish we had stayed longer. Spent the time with my family and my sister's family. Plenty of room for everyone with lots of great sitting areas all through the house. Wonderful accommodations in the house and best porches I have ever seen with great views. The owners are so kind and helpful. We highly recommend this home to others and hope to stay again one day!!
