MOUNTAIN SETTING & VIEWS! ~ WALK TO TOWN - FREE WIFI - DOGS ALLOWED

Estes Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 8)

Ridgeview Lodge is nestled in the trees atop a hill overlooking the quaint town of Estes Park with stunning mountain views of Lumpy Ridge and the Twin Owls. Here you have the best of both worlds - you can escape to the mountains and relax, yet it’s only a 5 minute walk into the center of town to enjoy shops and restaurants! Open up the windows and listen to the calming sound of the river. Do you love the outdoors? The majestic Rocky Mountain National Park is just a 5 min drive away where you can enjoy wildlife, hundreds of hiking trails, rock climbing, amazing views, beautiful drives, numerous lakes and waterfalls as well as snowshoeing and cross country skiing.

The spacious, open floor plan of this home allows plenty of room for everyone as well as gathering space to spend quality time together. See many more details in the 'Further Details' section of this listing below!

The master bedroom has it’s own half bath for privacy, a plush queen size log bed, dresser, closet and writing desk. The 2nd bedroom is quite large and offers versatility for kids or adults with a log bunk bed that has a twin bed on top and queen on the bottom. There is a large dresser and plenty of closet space as well as a stash of board games and toys. These guests enjoy a full bath with tub/shower just down the hall. This home has a tankless water heater which allows back-to-back showers so all guests can enjoy a hot shower in the morning!

Downstairs is a beautiful separate suite with its own bathroom with shower, kitchenette with fridge and microwave, gas fireplace and private patio. The large suite has a queen size bed, dresser, closet and a futon that folds out to queen size as well. Guests in this suite also enjoy their own flat screen TV. With large windows and the same stunning views enjoyed upstairs, it’s hard to decide who gets to stay in this room! If desired, maximum privacy can be achieved by closing a door atop the stairs to separate this room from the rest of the house. It even has its own entrance from the outside. Overall, we can accommodate 8 guests in this home.

In the living area, enjoy two full size sofas, a flat screen TV with blu-ray player and library of movies to watch, or relax and read a book. We have lots of books about the local area so you’ll have no trouble finding things to do, if you ever want to leave the house! There is a loft above the living room with some comfy chairs and plenty of reading material. Our dining room seats 6-8 with mountain views and warmth from the wood burning stove. If you prefer to eat outdoors, the deck seats 11 and boasts amazing mountain views as well as a view of town. Enjoy the lovely sounds of the river while outside and open up the windows to enjoy it inside as well. The open kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, bakeware, serving dishes, dishes and utensils...just bring home the groceries and prepare a lovely meal for the family. We also have a Cuisinart CrockPot, toaster, blender, coffee pot, electric tea kettle, baking dishes, pizza pan, cookie sheets and mixing bowls. If you want to relax and let someone else do the cooking, we have provided menus from many places in town, including lots who deliver!

We want you to get the most out of your vacation so we have provided lots of information on things to do in town and in the national park. You can also find the events calendar for the town in the links section on our website. We have free wi-fi in the home in case you need to look up activities or even get a little work done if you can’t completely get away. We welcome dogs too! Bring your best friend along. Call us with any questions and we look forward to having you stay!

Just as described!

This was a great cabin for us Grandparents,, and our son & family. They had the privacy of the lower level,, which has everything you might need,, and we could get together on the main level which is superb. Very clean,, beds are comfy,, kitchen is well furnished,, we appreciated all the free standing fans,, in addition to the ceiling fans. We were there over the 4th of July,,, and YES,, you can see the fireworks display over the lake from the deck. It was beautiful and lasted for 20 minutes at least. The younger ones enjoyed being within walking distance of downtown,, it is a steep walk back to the house,, but they didn't mind at all. Just a very nice place.

Family Time in Estes Park!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Ridgeview Lodge was superb. Our family of 3 adults, 4 children, and a dog was very happy and comfortable in this great multi-level home. The kids really enjoyed the Library Loft; I as the Grandmother enjoyed sharing the Downstairs Suite with its great views onto the town and hillside with my granddaughter. We were graced by the sights of a mother Elk and her spotted baby; walked to town every day, usually twice a day; hiked to Bierstadt Lake; walked to the Fun Park; took the dog to the Off-Leash Park. We enjoyed dining at Grubsteak, Baba's Burgers, and Chelito's. We got ice cream cones at Laura's each night before making the steep walk back home. We had a great time listening to the Singing Cowboys in the Park before dinner. The Ridgeview Lodge offered us the joy of being so close to town, to having such comfortable beds and linens, good coffee makers, and clean and wonderful living space. I can easily imagine us making this a regular vacation home for our family. Thanks for sharing your amazing home with us travelers!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location for a vacation getaway. Cabin feels secluded, but also so close to the downtown area. Comfy beds and everyone felt at home, even our 2 dogs. Our daughter loved the loft space to look at books and played board games. We saw elk and muledeer in the backyard almost everyday. Christina was great to work with. We are already planning on when we can come back.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This does feel like HOME! Only sooooo much better because it's the Rocky Mountains! We have stayed at Ridgeview Lodge a number of times and continue to enjoy the perfect location for views, shopping, proximity to the park and nature surrounding the house. We continually experience elk, deer, chipmunks, squirrels and a variety of birds each visit. Our favorite time of the day is early morning drinking coffee and watching the sun come up over the Twin Owls rock formation, along with watching for all our feathered and furry friends to show up. As always the home is superiorly stocked with any amenity you could want. The art fest was going on in Bond Park and we had a wonderful time looking and buying. Our dog Koda thinks it's our second home and that we should have a deck just like Ridgeview's she can lay on during the cool mornings. You can't go wrong with coming to Estes and you can't go wrong staying at Ridgeview Lodge

All we can say is-AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5
Our 16 hour drive was totally worth it! Being able to bring the entire family (dogs included) was fantastic! The house is in the perfect location. Our kids chased chipmunks down the hill and loved every bit of it, especially the loft. The views are amazing!! We were able to make a lifetime of memories at the Lodge. Many thanks to Christie for being a wonderful host. We hope to be able to return in the future.

Ridgeview Lodge Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Ridgeview. My wife and I took my parents and our Yellow Lab Maggie along with their yellow Lab Megan. (the dogs are sisters) The home was beautiful and fit our vacation perfectly. We often decided to just stay at the house for several hours at a time instead of getting out in the car and traveling about Estes and the Park. The views were spectacular and the home was so comfortable. We will be back for sure!
