Overview

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.

About The Owner

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.

Why The Owner chose Estes Park

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great views of Longs Peak

  • 5 of 5

After only being there an hour, we were all planning our return trip. The home was clean and inviting. Hill House is very convenient to the RMNP(you can actually walk to the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center in about 15 min)and Estes Park. There are several restaurants nearby, so you don't have to go to Estes Park if you want to eat out. But, the kitchen had anything you would ever want to cook with including lots of spices, condiments and baking items if you chose to cook your meals. We all liked sitting on the porch looking at Longs Peak and listening for the elk to bugle. The elk were very active during our stay and we got to hear the bugling at all times of day and night! Trish was very helpful whenever we asked for information and she had lots of tips inside the home as well. I would highly recommend Hill House for your vacation. It would be your home away from home.

We had a great time at the Hill House and if you like watching animals in nature this is the place to be. The view of the mountains from the porch can't be beat, with both sunrise and sunset. We saw so much wild life from the porch it would be hard to write it all down. Just a few of the many animals we watched up close were Fox, Elk, Deer, Turkeys, Rabbits, and tons of Birds. We have rented many houses from VRBO and this house stands the test with everything you could want. Thanks Trish for a wonderful vacation, we really enjoyed ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thanks for my review. Gotta tell ya the fox is a new addition. Glad you saw it. There was a badger, I only heard about that one never got to see it, apparently it walked across the front porch.

Perfect Place for us.

  • 5 of 5

Hill House was the PERFECT place for our family for our Estes stay. All the amenities of home and such a relaxing environment. It is more like living in Estes Park then visiting.

We did not want to leave and all of the family are asking to go back again soon. Plan on slowing down and drinking a cup of coffee on the front porch each morning.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Hill House. Comfortable and equipped with modern appliances and television service, very clean, everything we needed. The kitchen had just about everything one would have in their own kitchen. We were able to cook meals and bake goodies. We didn't choose to grill out, but there was a grill if needed. The front porch was a great place to take in the beautiful view of the mountains and was very peaceful. I enjoyed sunny mornings and evening sunsets there. That same view of the mountains could be seen from several windows in the Hill House also. The town of Estes Park was a short distance away (a few minutes by car) and a free shuttle was available on the hour during the day. The shuttle came to a pick up point about a quarter mile away from the cabin. The cabin was very quiet and though there were some neighbors, we hardly noticed them. Trish, the owner, was next door, but we never saw her except when we went to her cabin to ask questions about the national park where she works. She pleasantly answered our questions and made suggestions about activities in the park and in the area. We were very close to the entrance to the park, which was very convenient.

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!
