The owners are long term Estes Park locals and history buffs, and immediately fell in love with the Twin Owls Cottage. It’s in an historic neighborhood and is one of the older buildings in the Estes Park Valley, so this is your chance to stay in an authentic home that still has convenient access to downtown and the National Park. It’s been fully restored and modernized, with fast wifi, proper heating, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Twin Owls Cottage is a two story gem just blocks from the town’s best restaurants and shops. The main floor features a large, open dining and living area, complete with comfortable sofas and chairs, and lots of natural light. A cozy fireplace is great for the winter months. The kitchen, plus a bathroom a and bedroom are on that main floor. The lower level features another bathroom, bedroom and a media room.

There’s a well-equipped kitchen, plus outdoor living space for your family and friends to have outdoor meals.

Past guests have raved about this home:

“… The house was spotless, which was huge for us. The bedsheets, bathroom… everything looked and smelled clean.”
“… We absolutely loved this home! Our family of 5 had lots of room to sprawl out. Plenty of parking, great location (even better than expected), nice cozy furniture with two areas to watch movies, and very clean.”
“… Wonderful stay in an impeccably clean, well-equipped and perfectly located house in Estes Park! Will certainly return..”
“… We loved staying here! The house is super cute and it is seriously only 5 minutes into town. Can’t beat the location. Very quiet neighborhood.”

The best part of the home is its perfect location. A picturesque drive up the canyon, along the banks of Fall River, takes you to the entry to Rocky Mountain National Park in about five minutes. Meanwhile, it’s just a short, leisurely stroll to town for drinks, meals and shopping.


Twin Owls Cottage offers 3 bedrooms. There’s a cozy main floor bedroom with comfortable queen bed and warm, inviting wood walls. A second bedroom downstairs features another queen, as well as a third bedroom with two twins. Downstairs features a second bathroom. We do provide a pullout sofa bed for more options.


Outdoor Spaces – The home features a nice outdoor dining space off the front door (see photos), perfect for summertime drinks or meals after a long day of hiking. There’s also a BBQ for outdoor cooking. The home offers views of the surrounding mountains.

Living Room – The home has a cozy living room with indoor fireplace, comfortable sofa, dining area, luxurious reading chair, and lots of natural light. A smart TV offers lots of streaming options (bring your own accounts).

WiFi – You’ll enjoy a strong 1 gig internet connection for streaming, entertainment and work.


Kitchen – The galley kitchen is fully equipped for all your meal prep needs while you’re staying here, though restaurants are so close that you may never cook here anyway! There are two interior dining areas, one off the kitchen and one in the living area.

Laundry – There’s a washer and a dryer the lower level that you are free to use. Please do! We try to keep the detergent stocked but don’t guarantee it, so it may be wise to bring a little of your own.


This location was just great! The home had a lot of character and was in an excellent location for going into town or RMNP.


We loved staying here! The house is super cute and it is seriously only 5 minutes into town. Can’t beat the location. Very quiet neighborhood.

A beautiful house in an unbeatable location! Downtown is a walkable distance and RMNP is just a couple minutes drive away. The house itself was spotless and so cozy.

We really enjoyed our stay! The house was spotless, which was huge for us. The bedsheets, bathroom..everything looked and smelled clean. The location was perfect.
