Live the life of leisure in a brand new second floor loft, situated in a fun neighborhood just blocks from downtown. This apartment was specifically built for vacationing guests in mind, and construction finished in mid-2020. Close to the National Park, featuring a 4K smart TV, kitchenette, open floor plan, 1 BR, 1 bath, and views of Lumpy Ridge from the huge picture windows.
- Private entry and porch
- 1 bathroom
- 1 bedroom
- Walk to town
Within blocks of the home are the best street tacos in town, a great Thai restaurant, and two of Estes Park’s best breweries. You can also walk a block and a half to Lake Estes to fish or just hang out. The convenience can’t be beat.
The owners, who live in the attached home, wanted ot create an inviting space that makes you feel like you’re high up in the air. They are avid rock climbers, after all! The massive second-floor picture windows offer commanding views over our neighborhood to the mountains of Lumpy Ridge and the twinkly lights of the Stanley Hotel.
The space features an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, so it feels big for its 600-ish square feet. The kitchen/dining/living area encourages socialization and it’s got a funky, modern vibe. At the same time, the cozy bedroom in the rear of the building is quiet as can be.
After a long day in the National Park, enjoy the loft’s speedy fiber-based wifi — one of the first homes in Estes to have it — as you stream your favorite shows on the big 4K smart TV.
While the neighborhood is residential, it’s frequently overrun with elk, deer and other wildlife that venture over after drinking from Lake Estes, about a block away. Animal sightings are common, so be ready.
All access is plowed and flat, so, you will be fine year round with whatever car you choose. We do recommend AWD however.
Note that this is a private guest suite in an accessory unit above the garage. It’s attached to the owners’ home, and they live there year round. There are no shared spaces, however, and they give guests privacy.
Also note that the fully stocked kitchenette has a 2 burner cooktop but no stove. It does feature a microwave, fridge and freezer, and assortment of pots and pans, cooking utensils, glasses, cutlery and plates.
A FEW REVIEWS
This beautiful home is the perfect place to relax after busy days in the hustle and bustle of Estes Park and RMNP. The sunrise views are definitely worth waking up early for! We loved the location – only a short drive to town but still far enough away to escape some of the hubbub that comes with a town bordering a wildly popular National Park.
We did some hiking in the area, cooked a nice meal for the two of us, and we saw an amazing sunrise without even leaving the bed. There’s some amazing photography on display, some great books, and a the views off the deck were beautiful!!
NOTE BEFORE BOOKING
Note that owners do live on site in the attached home. You will be renting a fully private and separate unit above their garage with no shared spaces. You may see them as you come and go, however.
No pets, no AC
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in the Loft of Leisure AirBnB apartment. And like nearly every other home in Estes Park, there is no air conditioning. Evening mountain air cools things quickly.
The Loft of Leisure is located on the second floor, and you will need to climb a flight of stairs to access it. The stairs are on the exterior of the garage.
