NATIVE FLOWERS ABOUND AT HILL HOUSE NEAR RMNP WITH GREAT VIEWS

Estes Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come and stay at the Hill House - a stone's throw away from the National Park Boundary. Enjoy wildlife on your doorstep and carefully tended native perennial flowers while staying in a cozy, homey environment.

The house faces south with a sweeping view of Longs Peak and neighboring mountains. Our large wrap-around porch is the best access to the yard of flowers and reflecting pond. It is perfect for reading, dining, being entertained by our visiting hummingbirds, or watching the elk and mule deer pass by. You can even grill or eat outside during our afternoon thunderstorms.

The National Park is just out the back door. The entrance station can be reached without having to negotiate downtown traffic and you can even hike in on foot. If you do want to go downtown and don't want to hassle with parking (a momentous task in the summer months), you can take the town's free shuttle. There is a stop just at the end of the road.

The house boasts three bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. The two bedrooms on the second floor offer privacy, a queen size bed, heated floor in the bathroom, a sitting area, and an eastern or western exposure. The third bedroom is on the ground floor with a queen bed and a private bath.

A well-arranged baker's kitchen offers a large island, two ovens, a microwave, dishwasher, and other small appliances.

On chilly evenings the wood stove warms the dining room that seats (6) with a view of Longs Peak from the oversized door.

The cozy living room offers pull-out couches, cable TV, a combo DVD-VHS player, books of the area, movies, and games.

Wireless internet is also available.

I returned to Estes Park because of fond memories of earlier days working at Dude ranches in the area. I purchased Hill House in 2007. I have the good fortune to work in Rocky Mountain National Park with the Resource Division. I tend to the native plants during the day and then to my own at home. My background is plants so the yard around Hill House has a mixture of native and other perennials.

I have spent the last 5 years improving Hill House. What was once a little house with an attached rickety cabin is now a simple but comfortable home. I salvaged all I could when I dismantled the cabin addition and have reused much of the paneling, trim, and exterior siding. I was able to build a small green house using the old windows, siding for the floor, and reused roofing. I also frequented building material recycling yards and have purchased items such as sinks, vanities, the sliding door in the kitchen, as well as other doors. After this long road of never-ending projects, I am excited to share Hill House with you.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Hill House is close to my beloved Rocky Mountain National Park (I can walk to work). Longs Peak and surrounding mountains can be seen from the front porch. The neighborhood is in a quaint older area of Estes.

If you are tired of driving or didn’t bring a car, free transportation is conveniently available from Hill House during the summer season. After a long day of hiking or hitting the shops, Hill House is a great place to relax. The comfy chairs on the wrap-around porch offer not only views of the mountains, but the continuous entertainment of the local birds enjoying all the flowers in the yard.

LOVED HILL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Excellent house with 3 separate bed and bath rooms plus an additional 1/2 bath. Awesome view of Longs Peak and there were elk and wild turkeys to watch in field in front of the house from beautiful wraparound porch! It was very clean and well furnished...everything we needed. We would highly recommend Hill House and would definitely stay there again!

WOULD LIKE TO VISIT AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
I and other members of my family had a wonderful time. The location is perfect - close to town but far enough away from the crowds too. The cabin suited all of our needs and the large porch was were we spent a great deal of time relaxing and watching the wildlife that ventured by.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at Hill House with our adult children and their spouses. As another reviewer stated, the house has character and rustic charm. Just what we wanted for our vacation getaway. And it is very clean. The three bedrooms each with a private bath were perfect for our three couples. The kitchen was terrific for cooking some delicious breakfasts and dinners. The view of Longs Peak from the front porch is spectacular. One day a herd of elk was grazing in the grass across the street.

The house is in a very quiet and peaceful location between Estes and RMNP, which was perfect for us as we went hiking in the park every day. Estes gets very busy, so it was great not having to drive through town to get to the park. We had a great vacation, and Hill House is a great base to experience and enjoy the Rocky Mountains!

VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
After attending our son's wedding in Denver, we escaped for a week to Estes Park. My wife, son and his family (including two grandsons under 4), and daughter loved the house. The location and view from the porch of Longs Peak was perfect. We had elk walk by the house, as well as deer. We saw a double rainbow the night before we left. Everyone appreciated a bathroom with each bedroom. The house was very comfortable and I couldn't help but think about how nice it would be to sit in front of the fireplace on a winter night looking out the window at the mountain. Close to town, yet very private. Owner was great. We definitely recommend this house.
