Why Jane Fox chose Estes Park

I chose this home the moment we drove up and I saw the floor to ceiling windows. Beautiful Mary's lake and mountains seemed to come right into the house when I first walked in. I've done lots of renovations to update the kitchen and the bathroom and added a gorgeous master bath. I had the front deck expanded and covered, built a garden area. I can keep going. I love my home. And, I'm happy to share it with my guests!

Charming house with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

House is so inviting and comfortable with tons of windows to enjoy the beautiful lake & mountain view. Kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals, house has a great wraparound deck, and this was a very easy place to stay with our little dog.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Larissa, for your lovely thoughts about my Estes Valley Cottage. I enjoy the the deck and-all the windows, too! The windows are why I bought the house in 2006. Nature is always on display here. I had part of the front deck expanded and covered so we could relax and watch the beautiful water spouting into Mary's Lake in comfort. It is amazing to see. Also, l have 2 Westies and they love the deck. There is wire on the railings so they can't jump off! They are safe and sound! Thanks for coming! I hope you will return again soon!

Great location and views!!!

  • 4 of 5

It snowed on us this time, lots of windows make for beautiful views!! The dryer wasn’t working this time but Host offered to come pick up our clothes and dry them for us! Only thing to make it cozier would be if the fireplace was working and more comfy chairs to gather around it in! For all you sports fans, My husband missed having the sports channel to watched football, so we streamed it live on my computer because there is a smart TV to plug it into!! Where there is a will, there’s a way!! Yay!!! We come every year to Estes, love it here💜?💜?💜?

Owner's Response: So good to have you visit Estes Valley Cottage once again! The snow storm in October was an early surprise but so beautiful. I agree, those floor to ceiling windows do bring in the gorgeous mountain views and you can watch the pretty snow falling while being toasty and cozy. The 60" smart tv isn't too hard to take either. Always a pleasure to have you! P.S. The brand new washer/dryer is now in good working order! Thank goodness!!

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything that we needed. The master wing was beautiful as the bathroom was recently renovated. We also had a door to the deck that wrapped around the house. The view from the front windows was breath taking. We had a bull elk out front the morning that we were leaving. It was an easy trip into Estes Park. We would love to go back someday.

Owner's Response: I hope you will come back to Estes again - soon! It is always amazing to me to see the wild animals walk by. It happens all year long. I recently added some wire fencing around the deck to protect our doggies from jumping off the deck when they get curious about those visiting wild elk and mule deer. Come again!

Cozy cottage with great porch

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay in Estes Park. The house was comfortable and we loved sitting on the porch as much as we could. Jane was a great host and made us feel right at home. We definitely want to come back soon.

Owner's Response: So good to meet you during your visit to Estes! Its so good to meet my wonderful guests. Vacations are a great time to relax and visit and make new friends. I am so fortunate to have the nicest guests! I especially enjoyed sitting out on the deck with you and seeing Mary's Lake. The water was so blue that day! Hope to see you again!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our son, his wife and dog, Munk spent Labor Day weekend at the Valley Cottage. The pictures of the Estes Valley Cottage are quite nice, but do not quite capture how perfect it is. This is the perfect place to come back to after a few hours of hiking.

The nice deck wraps around 3/4s of the house. A nice dinning area, an area to view Mary's lake with its interesting water show and a little area to curl up and read. The three bedrooms are quite comfortable and I had some bathroom envy over the master bath. The cottage could not have been cleaner and Jane, its owner, is wonderful to work with. She stopped by on our first day to apologize for the washing machine was not working. She took our comfort and satisfaction very seriously. Thank you, Jane.
