ROCKY MOUNTAIN TRANQUILITY ON THE BIG THOMPSON RIVER

Estes Park Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Discover 'Rocky Mountain Tranquility' at our luxury retreat on the Big Thompson River, only a mile from Rocky Mountain National Park, in Estes Park, Colorado.  Perfect for your family vacation or a girlfriend getaway! Our home has central air conditioning - hard to find in Estes Park. You can fish right outside the back door, but this is not your father's fishing lodge... Our 1800 ft2 riverfront duplex-style condo (in Park River West) is modern and up-to-date. The home has a dramatic two-story layout with light-filled rooms and hardwood floors on the main level.

Our home was not affected by the September (2013) flood event in Estes Park. Although we are located next to the Big Thompson River, our back deck is about 80 feet from its banks - close enough to hear its pleasant babbling but safely above its flood plain. The river today is just as beautiful as ever.

Because we, the owners, personally manage the rental of our home, you can expect to get rapid response, accurate answers to your questions, and a problem-free vacation. We live only one hour from Estes Park, and we keep a close eye on our vacation home.

Enjoy our open floor plan with master bedroom suite (king-sized bed) on the main level.  The fully-equipped kitchen is open to the great room and features granite countertops with a breakfast bar.  Our dining table seats six comfortably.  The sun-filled great room has comfortable furniture, a flat-screen TV and DVD player, vaulted ceilings and a river rock gas fireplace.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms, a full bath, and a cozy loft.  One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, the other has two extra-long twins.  The loft has a sofa and rocking chair, another flat-screen TV and DVD player, and a large table for games, puzzles, or laptop use (with wireless high-speed internet). 

Enjoy beautiful views from every room.  Central air conditioning and ceiling fans make hot summer days more comfortable.

Pine trees line the river outside our back door.  Deer and elk are frequent visitors.  The sunny deck is great for outdoor dining, watching wildlife, or just relaxing to the sounds of the river and the whispering pines.  Deck furniture and a gas grill are provided. Our neighborhood provides benches and picnic tables along the river for your use.  In addition, we have lightweight folding lawn chairs that you may take next to the river for a relaxing afternoon in the shade.

Choose a movie from our large collection of family-friendly DVDs and watch on one of our three flat-screen TVs.  Plug your ipod into the docking station (in great room) and listen to your music in one, some, or all of the rooms.  We also have plenty of books, puzzles, and board games for you to enjoy.  We provide four tennis racquets for your use at the high school courts.  For dining out and shopping, the charming village of Estes Park is only a mile away.

Your cell phone should work here, but we have a land-line just in case.  

Although Colorado usually gets lots of sunshine, we occasionally have spells of bad weather. After one rainy week in early June, we read this entry in our Guest Book: 'We are very sorry to take up three pages of your Guest Book, but we enjoyed your home so much that multiple family members felt the need to share their thoughts and thanks. Your home is absolutely beautiful. As you know, we could not have picked four days of worse weather. Your home saved our trip.'

Scrapbookers: Our home is perfect for your group's scrapbooking retreat. Refer to our website (www.RockyMountainTranquility.com) for details.

We are fifty-something empty-nesters who live about an hour from Estes Park. We have lived in Colorado since 1979. Both native New Yorkers, we met during our college years at SUNY Fredonia, but moved to Colorado a week after our wedding. We now have two grown children, one living in Denver, one in Chicago.

Kathy purchased this condo in 2008

We love the charming little town of Estes Park, gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Our condo is in a quiet neighborhood, right on the Big Thompson River, with abundant wildlife and picturesque views. It offers easy access to town and to the national park.

It would be a shame to allow our Estes Park home to sit empty most of the year, so we love sharing our home with other people. You help us pay the bills and we provide a tranquil and spacious 'home away from home' for your vacation.

We travel a lot ourselves, and wherever we go, we expect our accomodations to be clean, comfortable, and convenient. That is exactly what we strive to provide in our vacation home. We want you to have the most restful and relaxing vacation ever!

This is where you want to stay in Estes Park. All of the pictures and positive reviews are exactly what you will get. Traveling with my 3 young children I appreciated having a kid friendly space, and adult friendly space and one where all of us could be together. We also really appreciated having the light switches and remote controls labeled. It took the guess work out of trying to find the correct switch. They even thought of the little things that make your stay more enjoyable from games and movies to puzzles and books. Forget something? No worries, you will find it there as well. It was like having a small store right there in the unit. We will definitely be staying here when we come back.

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This house is great. It was perfect for our kids (2, 6 & 8 years old). Inside there was everything we needed for cozy evenings and the kids loved playing at the waters edge, building small dams etc. All aspects of the property were more than we expected. Highly recommended.

RELAXING AND AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
This place is beautiful. Very well stocked and available for anything. We truly just wanted some quite time away and that is what it was. The setting perfect by the river. Almost anything you want to do. Enjoy the great outdoors, read, watch tv, play games, or just relax in this very comfortable home. Convenient to Rocky Mountain National Park and also restaurants and town. Thanks - we hope to be back.
