We arrived at Estes Park on a Monday and while waiting for Rockhedge to be ready we took a drive through the immensely crowded village and quickly knew we would not be going back there. Being from Southern California we had our doubts as to whether we picked the right vacation destination to "get away from it all". Rockhedge proved to be the perfect answer to our worries. The long list of highlights of this property include: very private lot, beautiful craftsman style home, comfortable furniture, gourmet kitchen, quiet, and of course the wildlife viewing! We stayed at the house and relaxed the entire time we were not visiting RMNP and cooked most of our meals in the well stocked kitchen. Rockhedge ended up being a great choice for people like us looking to escape crowds, and of course it is within walking distance to the village if you choose to go.
