Having loved Colorado from the very first time my family and I visited when I was just a young girl, I knew then, that Colorado was where I wanted to live when I grew up. And so, at the age of 20, over 40 years ago, I moved to the place of my dreams.
When my mother would come to visit me during the summers, Estes Park was one place that she wanted to visit each year. Her love of the mountains, especially the charm of Estes Park and the peaceful serenity and beauty the mountains especially Rocky Mountain National Park is something that we both shared. Which is the reason, when I had the chance to purchase Two Pines on Shady Lane, I felt this was one opportunity I just couldn't pass up.
My family and I love to visit Estes Park whenever we can. We love our home and the close proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park not to mention the beauty that surrounds this magical place. This a perfect vacation spot for my family and I believe you will find it to be even better than what you expected as soon as you enter Two Pines on Shady lane.
Carol McSwain purchased this house in 2012
Located on one of several migration paths of the elk, hundreds of which pass through this cozy lane. Elk and deer graze in and around Two Pines and often spend the afternoon resting in the yard. Located just one block off the Peak to Peak Scenic Highway. Here is some of the most picturesque scenery in the world. Two Pines offers all the comforts of home with plenty of room for everyone. This home can easily accommodate up to 8 guests comfortably.
We traveled from Tennessee to enjoy the scenery, the climate and hiking with our daughter and son-in-law and 2 grandchildren. At Two Pines we appreciated the fact that you offer a discount to returning guests. The grandkids had a great time and we enjoyed making memories with them. The activities we enjoyed the most were hiking, shopping and the fireworks on the 4th of July.
Tips to future guests: stop and smell the roses!
Our special message to the host: Thank you for sharing your lovely rental home with us. You have done such a great job in decorating it and making it such a wonderful place to stay. Loved your sconces in the entryway. Saw them at Wynbrier home and got them but had them shipped back to TN.
Everything you could want from the great kitchen to comfortable beds, to beautiful decor. Its conveniently located walking distance from downtown or a very short drive. If we ever come back we know where we want to stay!
Perfect location; wonderful home with far more amenities that you typically get a the average cabin rental.
We had a wonderful time at Two Pines. We went to Estes Park for my 6-year old's spring break and despite the weather not cooperating, we were able to get in some horseback riding and spent a lot of time in town. We also enjoyed the herd of deer that would visit the neighborhood daily. Carol did an excellent job of decorating her home with mountain decor and took special care to include all the details, i.e. homemade soap, toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, etc. My children loved the popcorn machine in the basement...it was a great addition to a special movie night. I appreciated that Carol allowed us to bring our dog. We would highly recommend Two Pines to anyone traveling to Estes. Extremely clean and has everything you need!
We had a great time in Estes Park with our children ages 6 and 12, Carol was easy to work with and we appreciated the nice touches, great care was invested in the decor, we loved the beautiful prints depicting local wildlife, and the home had the feel of a mountain cabin in the woods. The children loved the twin beds and the owl pillow on each bed added another thoughtful touch, our 6 year old squeezed and hugged on the owl at bedtime since he didn't bring any stuffed animals from home. The home was conveniently located to town, yet slightly removed enough that we could escape and enjoy the quiet neighborhood away from any noise. The location was perfect for our day trips to RMNP and into town. We appreciated the use of a well stocked kitchen to prepare some meals, the roomy dining table and large windows were perfect for enjoying wildlife! The kids were playing outside one morning as we cleaned up from breakfast when they suddenly ran inside to tell us an Elk was following them, and sure enough we watched the Elk walk directly past the large dining room windows toward the front door just as the children had done. The natural bath soaps were another nice touch and the kids greatly enjoyed the foosball table. The only thing we might suggest is to replace some of the pots and pans with worn Teflon, but this wasn't a major issue since we used the crock pot and glass cookware. Thank you for the use of your comfortable home, we would definitely recommend Two Pines to friends and family, and only hope we could stay longer next time! Had a wonderful vacation and this home was beautiful overall, couldn't have asked for a better home base!
This home was very spacious and fit all 8 of us comfortably. The kitchen was perfect for big family meals. It was missing a few utensils like a liquid measuring cup and some bigger/or extra pots/pans for cooking for 8 people. We got to see deer moving right through the yard and some even came right up to the door. The location of this home was very central for going into town or going out on a hike.
We had a great time at Two Pines on Shady Lane. The house had everything you could ask for and more. Our boys really loved the popcorn machine and the games room. We loved the layout and relaxing atmosphere. There were 6 of us (4 adults and 2 kids) and it was great to all be together in the open plan living/dining/kitchen area. The house is very big, the beds were super comfy and the kitchen and bathrooms come well stocked with soaps, kitchen roll, towels etc. The house was clean and had a nice deck to sit out on and enjoy the mountains.
Estes Park offers many activities year around. Numerous festivals, craft fairs, horse shows, Scottish/Irish festival, elk bugling, the Aspen changing in the Fall, the Parade of Lights the day after Thanksgiving to kick off the Christmas Season, just to name just a few of the festivities throughout year in Estes Park. Too many to list here. Go to The Town of Estes Park website and take a look at the Estes Park Calendar of Events.
