STAY NEAR THE RIVER AND WALK INTO ROCKY MTN NATIONAL PARK

Estes Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Bierhaus is a fantastic family vacation home 200 feet from the Big Thompson River. It has been recently updated with new paint, living room furniture, all new comfy mattresses, kitchen island granite, and charming remodeled bathrooms. Bierhaus boasts many repeat visitors as well.

It is just a very short walk, less than 1/4 mile, to get into Rocky Mountain National Park and begin your hike. You can sit on the sofa and look out the picture window and watch elk and deer stroll by (this is actually very common). Bierhaus sits at the base of Giant Track Mountain and looks out across the Big Thompson River towards Eagle Cliff Mountain and the continental divide. It is a relaxing stay with plenty to do. Bierhaus is in the Aspen Brook community with very private grounds you can walk, including an area for bonfires as well as a playground for an absolutely great family vacation. The Aspen Brook community sits on the Big Thompson River.

Location, Location, Location. One of the truly unique features of Bierhaus is its location. You can avoid any Estes Park traffic simply walking 5 minutes and you are in Rocky Mountain National Park (see map on the right). One of the most common areas visited by elk, Moraine Park, is a brief hike from the house. The RMNP shuttle bus stops at the Moraine Park Museum during the summer. You can use the shuttle to get to many other trail heads further into the park. No need to find a parking spot at a crowded trail head!

Bierhaus is beautifully furnished and equipped to make your stay relaxing...or as active as you desire. It has a master bedroom (queen bed) on the first floor with a full bath. There are two bedrooms on the second floor that share a bathroom. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a queen bed and the other is a 'bunk room' with a set of bunk beds that are twin-size. Each bedroom has its own closet with plenty of space. The great room has a sofa and loveseat with a large table for games and a great fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped for whatever you might need. Bierhaus has a complete laundry room with a large clothes washer and dryer. The home also has a deck with picnic table and fantastic views. You can relax on the deck with a book and clearly hear the Big Thompson River, or just watch the wildlife.

As a guest in Bierhaus you will have access to a playground, large picnic area, volleyball, horseshoes, and a fire-ring for campfires, all adjacent to the river.

Things to do (besides relaxing and hiking):

Hire a fishing guide

Rent a bike in town

Check into a white water rafting trip in town

Take a rock climbing lesson

Try a snowshoe adventure

Go on a horseback ride

Take a day trip to Eldora to ski

Cook some smores at the firepit

Take a wildlife drive/hike

Altitude: 7,800 feet!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Greg- I haven't had a chance to write you regarding our stay in Estes Park. I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our short vacation. Much wildlife in complex it self (including a herd of mule deer that walked up your steps and then up the mountain behind the house), great restaurants (a favorite was Nepals). and 3 trips up along Trailridge Road where we saw Bighorn sheep for the first time. Your house and it's location were perfect for us. In fact, during our stay we all commented that we would like to someday replicate your cabin in the mountains of Maryland. We did wonder if building plans for your cabin or one similar are available somewhere on line? Thanks again, and we look forward to another stay in the future.

While vacationing in Estes Park for the last 35 years it has been our family's dream to 'own a piece of the Rockies'. Bierhaus is that. It has been in our family for about 20 years. While our piece of property is very small it has a large history. There is a mineral claim on it from 1875. It was part of the Dunraven Estate. If you read the history of Estes Park you'll see how it all fits in.

We believe the Colorado Rockies are as beautiful as the Alps and more beautiful than the Canadian Rockies.

This - is heaven.

Greg Bier purchased this house in 1993

Location, Location, Location. Bierhaus is its own trail head...there is NO NEED to drive into Rocky Mountain National Park and find a trail head parking space. Bierhaus is about 2.5 miles from the center of Estes Park. It is part of the small Aspen Brook community which is on the Big Thompson River.

Bierhaus is a unique jumping off point for the whole family. It is convenient to Estes Park yet within walking distance of great restaurants such as the Dunraven Inn. You can walk to the YMCA of the Rockies and take full advantage of all the programs they have to offer (nominal membership may apply).

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I take a summer trip each year with our four grandsons. The Bierhouse provided the perfect setting for our five-day visit to Rocky Mountain National Park. My husband and I loved our downstairs master bedroom with its own fully-equiped bathroom, and the two upstairs bedrooms with an additional bathroom for perfect for the boys. The kitchen was beautifully equipped with a full compliment of cookware and linens. I especially loved having access to a utility room with top-of-the-line washer and dryer. I can't say enough good about this lovely property. Although the fish weren't biting during our visit, having the Big Thompson River nearby added to the ambience of the location.

Winter Wonderland in May

  • 5 of 5
Somebody left a bottle of wine on the mantle, so things got off to a good start. The house was clean and all appliances were clean and worked as expected. We picked up supplies at the nearest Walmart 40 miles away on the way in from Denver and then we resupplied ourselves from a little, but aptly stocked, country store five minutes away from the house. The downtown area of Estes Park is only about 10 minutes away, as is the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The house is on a quiet wooded hillside near a river, which was flowing pretty quickly while we were there. One morning we saw ten turkeys taking a stroll right outside the house. We stayed there with four adults and had room for two more people. The house has a laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer, which was nice. I would recommend this place to friends, and I would stay there again.

A Christmas to Remember

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent three nights in Bierhaus over Christmas. We had an awesome time discovering the area, and the location of Bierhaus was awesome to be able to head back to for a quick lunch and then right back to RMNP for more spectacular views. The cabin was immaculate, and it had everything we needed and more. If we ever find ourselves back in the Estes Park area, we will definitely stay at Bierhaus again!

Great Location, Clean, Modern

We stayed for three nights during Jan for a quiet winter mountain getaway. Great location that is quiet and near the stream, but also within a few mins of town and entrance to the National Park. The house is well maintained and clean.

Fabulous place - Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous place and a perfect location!! Could not be a better setting for our family thanksgiving and several days of very-special family time. Beautiful views of the mountains from the living room and dining area. We enjoyed a great walk toward RMNP right from the house with the instructions provided in the welcome book. Well-appointed large kitchen and dining area – everything we needed to prepare and enjoy our meal - oh and a flock of wild turkey walked through the Bierhaus’ woods just as we sat down to Thanksgiving dinner! Ha Ha.
This place is beautiful, clean, and comfortable - great floor-plan – lovely interior with special details - just as in the website pictures. Everything is ready for you to walk in and enjoy your stay. Great vibes in this house and wonderful location! Greg was fabulous providing information and helpful suggestions, including an update that highway 36 reopened just before our trip. This is a fabulous house, host, and location.
Thanks to Greg and his family for sharing their lovely home with our family.

Map

Elk and deer are extremely common on the grounds. It is important that guests, especially children, understand the dangers of getting too close...or trying to feed the wildlife.

Fishing on the Big Thompson river, on Aspen Brook's river front, is catch-and-keep, NOT catch-and-release.
