I am a VRBO regular. And I have to say that our stay at Twin Pines was the BEST EVER!
First in meeting Kami, setting the scene for a friendly and comfortable level that just continued through our stay making us all feel like we were "home" in the mountains. Then to follow... an adventure that will stay in many hearts and memories for a life time.
My daughter was getting married in Estes Park and we used the cabin for our family to stay before and after.
We saw a mother moose and her baby walk through the property, elk surrounding the area, deer bouncing across the roads, fish jumping and even a bird (not sure what kind) swoop down and catch a fish. Our out of state visitors were very impressed... little did they know we were too. :-)
The large dinning room table was the place of great card games, wonderful food, and smile inducing laughter. The adjoining living room area...a place of deep conversations and a place I often found myself just sitting in the great leather chair, eyes closed... listening to all the happiness.
It rained most the time we were here. No worries... in between the rain all the lake goers ran outside and still canoed, kayaked, paddle boated and paddle boarded. The grand kids went on adventures (fairy house, interesting rocks, and made sand castles on the beach). Others went for bike rides, hikes.... and when the rain came back in... we were all around the table again... playing and laughing, cooking and singing.
One night... it was a perfect night for a bonfire... we all surrounded the fire under the incredible stars and sang and enjoyed each other-family. :-). One song, my niece sang (a Celtic ballad) quieted the entire lake... as I sat with my sweety in the chairs on the dock-holding hands, the water still and glassy, everyone in all the other homes around the lake became still.... and her voice blanketed the entire night... it was just her voice and the stars. People cheered for her to continue. It was a time I will remember forever!
I could go on and on about this place. It is a place for anyone that is looking for magic! It's a place to come together and enjoy what matters in life...FAMILY!
I will come back again with my family...DEFINITELY!
I almost didn't want anyone to know how great this place was so we could enjoy it all ourselves... but I couldn't. :-)
