About Joanne A. Eskildsen

Born in North Dakota, lived in Minnesota, South Dakota, and then Lincoln, Nebraska where I graduated from Union College in 1963. Taught 1 year at Union College in the Business Dept, and 2 years at Glendale Union Academy in Glendale, CA. Married a pilot who became a cropduster, and then we lived in Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Longmont, CO, Fort Collins, CO (flew off of what is now Kechter Road right in the southeast part of town)Steamboat, CO where we were ski bums and wintered, and presently in Greeley, CO and a Realtor for 33 yrs. Two grown sons, Hans & Jack, live in Washington. Built a log home in 1980 in the desirable and coveted Glenmere Park area - so have the mountain feeling while living in Greeley.

Joanne A. Eskildsen purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Joanne A. Eskildsen chose Estes Park

Love the mountains. Estes Park is especially breathtaking. It is only 1 hour from my doorstep. Was driving around one day before joining friends in Glen Haven for dinner, and came across this cabin for sale that I knew was just for me, a 1935 vintage cabin with wonderful bones and a covered porch with awesome views of Longs Peak and only a mile from downtown and yet very set apart, quiet and secluded that needed a ton of updating and redecorating. Peeked in the windows and decided there had to be hardwood floors under the ugly carpet, called the owner, scared myself silly by doing a reverse 1031 Exchange with a duplex I owned in Steamboat, and living happily everafter. Motto: "Destined to be an old woman with no regrets".

What makes this cottage unique

Lounging in the hammocks. Cooking on the outdoor grill. Watching and feeding the hummingbirds. Coming home one day at noon and finding 3 policeman at the property scaring off a bear that attempted to enter through the back screen. Watching a mother elk right after giving birth to her baby just steps from the back door of the cabana. Watched them all day long. Watching a bull elk guard his harem of 10 all day one Saturday just outside the covered porch with friends from Greeley. Watching coyotes and red fox cross the yard. Love the big blue jays. Have white lights up in the crabapple tree that shed the most beautiful pink glow over the tables in the courtyard. Having dinners with guests that invite me up and getting to know them. Having a guest enjoy getting engaged on the front porch, or having a wedding reception at the cabin, and the young families that so enjoy the property. Had a fantastic family reunion with 100% participation - 36 of us from all over the US. Live music, catered food, oh my! Taking a nap on the iron bed on the front porch. Reading a book with a fire roaring and the smell of logs burning in the white brick fireplace. Loud music when I am alone. Snowfalls are so majical. The most cozy and wonderful dining room with place settings, transferware, and candlelight! So enjoy hanging the wash on the clothesline in the sun and the fresh clean linen smell when folding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

8th Annual Women's Fall Trip - Like a cleaning tornado I tore through my desk this morning, only to discover your stamped and ready to go envelope laying upon my desk. Barefooted, I ran to the mailbox and placed our deposit in with good wishes and my apologies for taking an extra couple of days. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us. We've had a flurries of emails transpire, mostly on requests for the hammock, green Adirondack chair and outside day bed; we may have an arm wrestling contest for the privilege to stay in the Cabana.

Best wishes, Greta

Honeymooner's Cottage with Superb Views - very accurate!

Honeymooner's Cottage with Superb Views - very accurate!
  • 5 of 5
Every time we visit the RMNP & Estes Park, we immediately booked this lovely home. Everyone in our family enjoys this home and refers to it as the 'pink house'. It is very warm and engaging - the interior is quaint and well-decorated. It is the perfect home to return to after a long day hiking. We especially enjoy the porch that has a perfect view of Long's Peak! And its walking distance to downtown! And for those who feel the need to keep connected to the outside world - this house has both cable TV and internet!

We recommend that you utilize the cabana - the additional yet separate small house for extra guests. It also has a great view of Long's Peak from a hammock!

Relaxing break with young adult children

  • 5 of 5
We had no problem finding the cute cottage (nice two bedroom) with the directions given. The house, built in 1936 has lots of character and great views of surrounding peaks. Enjoyed seeing the humming birds, chipmunks and elk at visited. We looked for the fox but never saw it. This is a great place to unwind, away from the bustle of touristy downtown Estes Park, but close enough to it and the National Park entrances to be perfect. My two young adult children had a good time just hanging out and cooking. We had a problem with the internet but Joanne was on top of it. We talked of return next summer with the rest of the family.
