Estes Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom. Comfortable, clean, perfect location. View from deck.
Elk Cottage is truly our “home away from home”. This quiet, three bedroom, historic cottage is a short walk to downtown Estes Park. The knotty pine interior is warm and cozy with all the modern necessities. Enjoy views of the Stanley Hotel and Twin Owls from the deck off the master bedroom. Avoid parking hassles by parking at “home” and enjoy the views of the valley as you walk just 3 blocks to the downtown center, which also has a free shuttle bus (seasonal), that takes you everywhere in the Estes Valley. Grocery store is only ½ mile away. There will be Elk and other wildlife viewing opportunities. Peaceful residential street with several homes built in the 1920’s. This home will be perfect for vacationers who want to relax and enjoy Estes Park charm, and be close to restaurants and shops in a homespun atmosphere. It is a quaint and uniquely Estes Park cabin in town. You can even take the shuttle (summer) to Rocky Mountain National Park if you desire to ride and not drive, however, if you prefer to drive into the Park it is a short, easy access to both Park entrances.
In the summer enjoy your coffee on the deck or grill dinner on the barbeque. The fun in the Estes Valley is limitless. Staying in our “home away from home” you can be a visitor and a resident at the same time. Best of both worlds! You can do all of this without starting your car if you wish.
In the autumn enjoy the changing trees, the elk rut and migration through the valley, Scottish festival, Elk Fest, and some really great sales in the shops! Thanksgiving Holiday brings out the picturesque Holiday lights and decorations as well as a Catch the Glow Holiday parade the day after Thanksgiving. A truly heartwarming way to start the Season!
There is simply no better place to spend Christmas than this quaint, beautifully decorated mountain village. Winter is a fantastic time to visit Estes Park. It is quiet and peaceful and there are many things to do in the area such as snow shoeing, sledding, ice skating, playing in the snow, and enjoying a warm meal in the restaurants. January brings the Winter Festival which is something worth checking out.
Spring brings with it the newborn Elk calves and migration through the valley again. All in all, there are just no ends to the things to do in the Estes Park Valley…..oh and did I mention hiking and exploring in Rocky Mountain National Park? This home offers a close and convenient access to all amenities in the Estes Valley.
Please allow us to welcome you to our “home away from home”.

Becky Sorensen purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Becky Sorensen chose Estes Park
We purchased this property because of it's unique Estes Park charm and history. Built in the 1920's it is cozy and warm but with all the modern conveniences of today. Updated but retains the 'cabin' feel that we love.
What makes this cottage unique
The location of this property is perfect for enjoying the Park, beautiful scenic drives, or the many other Estes Valley activities. Close enough to walk or shuttle to almost anywhere in the area, including Rocky Mountain National Park. Quick and convenient access by car to activities. The deck off the kitchen and master bedroom has a great view of the Stanley Hotel and Lumpy Ridge. We have sat there many days and watched elk and deer grazing in the yard. The knotty pine interior is beautiful and creates a warm atmosphere.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Perfect! That's all I have to say.We had a great weekend. It's like home away from home. Went to the Stanley for a ghost tour and ghost stories for our daughter's 13th birthday. She and her friends can't wait to come back. I love the coziness of the your place. I want to come back in the summer. Going back to Colorado Springs and the city life. Thank you for everything.
.These girls are forever friends with "Scary Mary".
