40th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
I rented the Elk River Retreat as a surprise for my husband's 40th birthday celebration. We invited friends and family to celebrate the week with us. This cabin was amazing and we were all extremely pleased with the accommodations. My husband is a huge hunter and fisher, so this house fit him like a glove. I loved the river that runs in back of the house. Nothing like falling to sleep to the natural sounds of the running river. It drowned out all other sounds. Hats off to the Sharp's for opening their lovely home to us and providing exceptional decor, kitchen appliances/table ware, and location. Anyone looking for a great log cabin to rent, I would say this is the house to stay at. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a fun filled week with family and friends! PS, my husband loved the personal visits from the local wildlife. A true bonus for us.
****note: The house was exactly as the picture portrayed. The owner was prompt in answering all questions related to the house. I was overly pleased with all the extras the house had to offer regarding towels, beds, extra blow up mattress, outdoor seating and extremely clean/well kept.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family had a great time! This is truly our "get away from the world" retreat! We are so glad the resident wildlife stopped by to say hi! We look forward to sharing our home with your family in the future!

Wonderful retreat home

Our stay at Sharp's Elk River Retreat was all and more than we anticipated -- because they had anticipated our every need!! The description and photos of this lovely home are as described -- maybe even better!! Our extended family of seven (20s to 80) had a memorable time together -- cooking in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen, hiking the many RM trails and discussing our active days over dinner on the deck overlooking the Big Thompson or in the comfortable large living area. We couldn't have found a more relaxing place for our busy family (Med and Law School students) to gather and enjoy each others company for a week of togetherness. The weather was also perfect for July hiking in one of our very favorite destinations -- Estes Park and the Rocky Mtns. We were all thankful to be able to share the Sharp's lovely home and hospitality!!

What we enjoyed the most about this wonderful property was the abundance of comfortable "gathering space". Our extended family enjoyed the generous open space between the kitchen, dining, living and library area. There was so much comfortable seating and dining space.

All the rooms were well decorated. immaculate and very comfortable. We could easily access downtown activities or head for hiking in the mountains.

We would definitely like to stay at this property again!

Fun Times in Colorado

Three couples - all buddies from our days at Texas A&M over 30 years ago - got together for a long weekend in Estes Park and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Elk River Retreat. We cooked all of our meals at the cabin and prepared picnics for lunch. We grilled each evening and enjoyed eating out on the porch, listening to the sound of the river and watching the deer. We found Elk River Retreat to be very accommodating with a fabulous kitchen, plenty of seating, and comfortable beds. The owner was very helpful to reply quickly with anwers to questions. They have done a great job with the cabin. Plenty of great quality towels in bathrooms, roomy accommodations and everything was very clean. Easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park, very close to Estes Park Brewery - both of which our group enjoyed! We liked the pictures we saw online - but once we got there we found the interior of the cabin to be even better than the pictures!! We would recommend this property to others and are anxious for a return visit.

Great Family Friendly Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 27, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
Our bicoastal family decided to "meet in the middle" for a family vacation in Estes Park. Elk River Retreat was the perfect place for us to unwind and make up for lost time. It was one or two minutes away from downtown Estes and had all the luxuries of city living with the allure of mountain life (female elk and their babies liked to hang out right outside the master bedroom window!). We visited in the summer and if we come back, we would like to stay during the winter months so we can get the full effect of the snow, fireplaces, and winter wildlife.

We brought along our 13 month old son who loved the open floor plan and watching Special Agent Oso on the big screen tv! For the most part the home is baby-proof (lots of fun drawers to hide mommy and daddy's things in), but those families with a toddler may want to bring along or purchase a baby gate to close off the open stairwell to the downstairs in the living area. One of us was on "stair patrol" at all times. We left an umbrella stroller in the front closet for families to use. Enjoy!

The Sharp family seems sweet and genuinely interested in making sure we had a good time. And we did. The only surprise was that the home was not as secluded as the pictures made it seem. It is the most secluded of the homes in the complex and it was private, but it overlooked the coffee shop across the river and was it sits off a main road, which you see from the balcony. But I think our expectations were inaccurate here. The home was indeed in Estes Park, a tourist area, not "in the mountains". It is just as secluded as any other vacation spot in Estes, so I don't think this is a negative. We just didn't have an understanding of what this area of Colorado was. The home is right outside of the national park, so we took many scenic drives and day trips through nature. So, I was happy that we ended up with the "best of both worlds"...the city and the Rockies.

Thanks again for good memories.

Owner's Response: We are extremely glad a great stay was had by all! The elk are always fun and entertaining to watch, especially up close!! We look forward to having you and your families stay at our home again in the future!
