Enjoy mountain views while BBQing on a massive deck, lazing in a hot tub, or telling stories under the stars in front of our backyard fire pit (STR #3522).

The owners raised their kids in this gorgeous home near the lake, but recently moved higher into the mountains around town. They are now proud to rent their place out to people who truly wish for the best Estes has to offer. They have so many fond memories from around our backyard fire pit or from family cookouts on the deck, and they hope you experience the same!

Our home is located a few minutes east of town, in walking distance to Lake Estes and all the great fishing below the causeway as the lake empties out into the Big Thompson River just before it heads down canyon. The home is up a small hillside so it’s elevated, and you’ll have nice views of the mountains from the deck, hot tub, and some of the bedrooms. We have parking for three cars at our house, and it’s about a 10 minute walk to the seasonal free bus system that goes around Estes Park and into the National Park.


The home offers 3 bedrooms, plus sleeping for two more on a sofa bed in the living room.

  1. The master suite has a luxurious king bed, views of the mountains so you can watch the sun rise or sun set, and a comfortable en suite bathroom with a shower. It’s on the opposite side of the house from the other bedrooms so it’s got a little more privacy.
  2. A favorite bedroom with absolutely enormous picture windows, a comfy queen mattress, and a door leading out to the deck. It’s raised off the ground and offers a treehouse feel, and if you keep the windows open you can fall asleep to the stars.
  3. Next to bedroom 2, also featuring a queen bed and windows, adjacent to the second bathroom.


Living Room – Guests love the open floor plan! The living room, kitchen and dining area all adjoin each other in one great room, complete with a funky old yellow piano you’re free to use. There is also a massive French patio door opening onto the deck, with the grill and outdoor picnic area. Beneath the coffee table is a great selection of games for family game nights.

Outdoor Living & Hot Tub – The home has two big decks, both of which have staircases leading down to the hot tub and the fire pit in the yard. There is ample space for outdoor dining and grilling on the deck, and the hot tub has great mountain views. Just down from the hot tub is a quaint outdoor gas fire pit for family gatherings.

Media Room – Downstairs is a great media room with a huge flatscreen TV with lots of streaming options as well as a foosball table. Movie nights are the best!


Kitchen – The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, small appliances, fridge, freezer, full size oven and stove, microwave, drop coffee maker, toaster, and more. You may not actually use it that much because you can walk to all the great restaurants in downtown!

Laundry – The home features a full size washer and dryer for you to use!


Gorgeous home ! Super clean and view was amazing. Hot tub was so nice in the cold weather and everything felt like home. Beds were super comfortable and the movie room was super fun.


This was a rental that felt like home. With so many options for spaces to congregate, it made for the perfect getaway in a picturesque and popping mountain town. The house itself was clean and beautifully arranged, and Nancy went above and beyond when responding to questions about the listing. Seriously, I can’t say enough good things – the hot tub was clean and easy to use, as was the fire pit! Thanks for the wonderful stay, we hope to be back soon!

This home is an absolute dream. Beautiful, spacious, full of charm and amazing amenities to enhance your stay. The location of this home is another huge perk–you are perfectly located in Estes Park– just a short drive from all the wonderful things the town has to offer, yet still so peaceful and quiet. It truly is tempting to never leave this place! My wife and I loved it! Worth every penny!

Loved the space. There were great views from all point of the house and the space was nice and clean. Everything was simple to access; the fireplace and the hot tub. Lots of cookware to make your meals. Really great thermostat, the house warmed up very well. The town was a quick drive and great options for food and pie.



Hot tub

Our home features a wonderful hot tub, but do not treat it as a bathtub. It’s a great therapeutic way to relax. You must shower before use, and you cannot drink or eat food inside it. The water will go foul quickly if you do.


Estes nearly burned to the ground in 2020, so while outdoor fires are allowed in the gas fire pit, there is absolutely no wood burning open fires ever! Feel free to enjoy the indoor gas fireplace.


Again, due to the extremely high fire danger smoking is strictly prohibited on the property. Please respect this.
