We are very thankful and blessed that our home was not damaged by the flood.

Our recently remodeled awesome river retreat home, 'Dancing Bears', is located on 300 feet of beautiful Big Thompson River frontage with views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the mountains. There is Rocky Mountain National Park land located across the river from our home. Estes Park is a little 'slice of heaven' and we are creating a comfortable, warm home to enjoy with your family and friends.

The deck has new patio furniture for taking in

the beautiful Rocky Mountain sky, mountains and surroundings while listening and watching the river. There is a large grill for cooking your fresh caught trout. Enjoy the stars and the river as you relax in the hot tub after a day of hiking or snowshoeing.

The family area has a 40 inch TV, DVD, game system and a log twin sofa with a twin trundle.

The master bedroom, 'Bears', has windows overlooking the river, a door that opens onto the river front deck and a rock fireplace. There is a King Log bed and a TV for Mama and Papa Bear :).

I consider myself to be very blessed and fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy our freedoms. I am a lucky mom to a wonderful teenage son. I find the world and people fascinating and relish the time I can spend traveling and exploring.. I love to travel, experience the world and spend time outdoors.

Jane Livingston - Owner purchased this house in 2011

I worked at the YMCA of the Rockies one summer while in college and I almost stayed rather than going back to college. I think Rocky Mountain National Park has some of the best hiking in the world. I love being by the water and soaking up the outdoors while listening to the soothing sounds of the river and taking in the spectacular rocky mountains. The energy around our home and along the river is awesome and being so close to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park is wonderful.

August Sale! All remaining nights on sale for $295/night plus departure/cleaning fee and tax!

We are 1.5 miles to Rocky Mountain National Park and less than that to a grocery store and shopping. Relax by the river while reading a good book and being mesmerized by the spectacular beauty of the mountains and the sounds of the river. Sit on the river patio while fishing to your heart's content. Soak in the hot tub after hiking or snowshoeing while watching and listening to the river. Enjoy a soothing, peaceful steam shower anytime you desire. Relax with your morning cup of coffee on the patio taking in all the beauty. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as the sun sets behind the mountains while cooking those fresh caught fish on the grill.

A Winner!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Estes Park for our family vacation. I had no idea where the property was actually located except that it was on the Big Thompson River. We found the location to be excellent. It felt so secluded and from the house you couldn't see anything but the river, beautiful trees, a meadow full of elk and mountains in RMNP. However, everything the town had to offer was minutes away! The home was so big and comfortable with everything we needed for a delightful stay. The backyard area had steps down to the river with two benches at the river's edge. The elk may not always be in the same place but one day there were about 30 across the river. Amazing! I know I always worry that a property that I want to rent may not be as nice as it sounds. Let me tell you with utmost sincerity, that this property is as wonderful as it sounds. Do not hesitate to go for it!! You will have a very memorable time in a wonderful home in a delightful area of Colorado!

Great for large family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5
Great for our large group and family reunion get together! Plenty of open, common spaces and yet, areas for quiet and relaxing indoors and outdoors overlooking the river. The outdoor spaces (deck, patio, riverside patio) were especially nice to enjoy the wildlife and sounds of the river! Close to town but feels like you're in a remote mountain location. Nice perks were the hot tub, Xbox game setup, and ping pong/air hockey/pool table for kids big and small!

Amazing house, great location, so much bigger and nicer than the pictures show.

  • 5 of 5
What we loved about the house:

It was bigger and nicer than the pictures show.
Clean and tidy, tastefully decorated.
Large open common space, kitchen overlooking the dining room and living room.
Large dining room table
Pool/air hockey table was an added bonus.
All Bedrooms on one side of house, away from noise of the common space.
5 bedrooms, each with a king bed!
All basics covered--plenty of towels and a well stocked kitchen.
Minutes from RMNP.
Minutes to Estes Park town center.
Elk sightings in the yard.
The river in the yard, hearing it, listening to it, so peaceful!
A bit cool to sit outside too long, but the back patio overlooking the river was peaceful and beautiful. I can only imagine how nice it is in the summer.

I would recommend this to any small group.

We just returned from Jane's wonderful home. If you are thinking about renting this cabin, absolutely go for it...you will be making a mistake to pass it up. All of the routine worries you would have in renting a home will be gone the minute you walk in the door. Everything will be exactly as descibed (actually better), so you have no concerns over the "What if...." of renting someone else's home. The cabin was more than spacious for all of us (ages 5-70). Plenty of room to spread out and have your own space. Now on to the important things. This house has an amazing secluded feeling where you will enjoy the peace and quiet of the river below without realizing there are other houses nearby. Yet, you are only a couple minutes from Estes Park and all that it has to offer in terms of downtown shopping, restaurants, etc. One quick turn the opposite direction and you are in RMNP in a couple minutes. I mean that literally, you will be downtown or in RMNP in less than 5 minutes. For those of you wanting relaxation, the steam shower and hot tub combined with the sounds of the Big Thompson River will leave you in perfect bliss. The views from the expansive patio and deck are breathtaking. For the wildlife lovers, we saw numerous elk, bighorn sheep, a black bear, rabbits, several mule deer, marmots, & hummingbirds. Fisherman, like me, hear this- We caught several good size Rainbow Trout in the Big Thompson right off the lower patio and backyard. We cleaned one and ate trout that was swimming only minutes earlier. You won't get fresher than river to grill in 25 feet!!! The hiking in RMNP is outstanding and it might as well be in Jane's backyard it is so close. I could go on and on about RMNP or Estes Park, but those two great places are even more enjoyable when you have such an amzing place to call "home" for the week. Jane's pictures are great, but will not do justice to what you are really getting when you rent this cabin. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone who is interested. The only downfall was of our entire experience was having to leave to go back to the real world.
