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!

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.

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!

Home Away From Home!

This is the second winter I have spend thirty days here at Ridgeview. I love it more today than I did last winter. It totally feels like home. Christie is so wonderful. She goes above and beyond to make you feel totally comfortable here. The kitchen is nicely stocked, the couches and beds are very comfortable and the entire home was extremely clean. As far as I’m concerned, Christie has all your comforts handled beautifully. Once again this year, many deer came to visit me here at Ridgeview along with numerous types of birds. I saw a few elk in the neighborhood too. Of course you can always go critter watching in RMNP and see huge herds of elk. Although only my oldest grandson came to visit me this year during my stay, there was still a number of toys at Ridgeview he enjoyed playing with during “grandma rest times”. Please don’t think there is nothing to do in and around Estes Park during the wintertime. We had so much fun going horseback riding, sledding at Hidden Valley, hiking in RMNP, shopping and dining in the numerous wonderful places in Estes. I have to admit that the highlight for my grandson, my son and me was going snowshoeing around the Bear Lake and Glacier Gorge area. None of us had ever been snowshoeing before and what a wonderful time we had! If you have never been, I highly recommend it. Fun, Fun, Fun!!

LOVED IT!

Our family and I had made reservations before all of the flooding, and were unsure about keeping the dates. Christie was so awesome about keeping us updated, working with us, and just being the perfect owner for a vacation rental! It was our 3rd trip to Estes in a year, and Ridgeview Lodge is the perfect place to stay. We brought our dogs, lit fires in the wood burning stove, had cocktails on the deck & walked to the top of the road for a beautiful view of the Rockies! My kids were able to skateboard right in front of the house & hangout in the loft and play. My oldest boy filled the fridge downstairs & tuned out for awhile everyday - he loved it! We always stay at VRBO's when we travel & Christie made this the most personable & genuine experience thus far! See you in the spring! Thanks!

Great Home and a Fun Place to Visit in Winter

I'm a little late getting this review in, but we had such a great time at the cabin and stumbled across the owner's personal thank you card that we received after the stay so I felt compelled to let others know how much fun we had. We were looking to get out of the city for a few days with two other couples and really wanted to avoid the crowds at all the ski resorts. We found this place and it was perfect for what we were looking for. We did a little skiing and snowshoeing and really just loved being up in beautiful Estes Park without the crowds. Anyhow, if you are looking for a great mountain getaway and looking to avoid the crowds, I would highly recommend staying here during the winter!

Map

Car: not necessary

Our home is located in the heart of town, up on a hill. Nestled in a private mountain setting, it is just a 5 minute walk down the hill into the very center of town. You can walk to all the downtown shops and restaurants without needing your car. Estes Park offers festivals and fun events nearly every weekend of the year!

If you do have a car, it is only a 5 minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park which offers endless outdoor activities, hundreds of miles of hiking trails, numerous lakes, ponds, rivers and waterfalls, and tons of wildlife including elk, deer, moose, mountain goats, birds and many more.
