About Ed or Aaron Acela

My Wife, Father and I purchased our home in Estes Park in October of 2000. My father had traveled to Colorado many times with his parents as a kid. When he shared the mountain experience with me for the first time I knew I would always come back. We chose Estes Park as the people here are great and the atmosphere in town is very warm and inviting. In the spring there is lush green and wildflowers. Summer offers beautiful scenery and cool mountain air. Fall abounds with golden aspen and wildlife to include elk, deer, rabbit and even the occasional bear. Winters are mild and there is even downhill skiing and snow boarding within an hours drive. With just five minutes to downtown Estes or the entrance to RMNP we knew this was home.

Ed or Aaron Acela purchased this house in 2000

Why Ed or Aaron Acela chose Rocky Mountain National Park

Our family enjoys sitting on the deck and watching the clouds roll in over Longs Peak in the afternoon while our three daughters use grandpa’s binoculars searching the mountain sides and looking at the humming birds. The sky is so blue and the smell of pine trees in the air is relaxing while my wife enjoys a favorite book. Many evenings are spent grilling on the deck and eating as a family at the picnic table. Many nights are spent talking and telling stories next to the fire in the living room and planning the next days hike around Estes or in Rocky Mountain National Park.

What makes this house unique

A breathtaking view and herds of elk in the yard, along with the quiet secluded area and large moss rock fireplace are a few of the unique features of our cabin. We also have an arcade size pinball machine this is just twenty five cents per play for your added enjoyment.

Extremely Good Value for Price

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed. Lots of space. Older 1970's property is excellent value for price. Excellent location for RMNP. Only negatives that might influence a repeat visit are condition of carpet throughout and quality of mattresses (very firm, below hotel quality).

Vacation in the Rockies

We had an awesome time, the rental was perfect for our family of 12, Granddad, kids & grandkids. The view was fantastic, especially from the large deck. The rental offered everything we needed and very comfortable. The location was perfect, close to all activities but not too close. We highly recommend this property!

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "the house on the rocks" for a girls trip. There were 6 of us and the house was perfect. All we brought was food and clothes and the house provided everything else. The deck outside has wonderful mountain views and we saw Elk, deer, chipmonks and beautiful birds from the deck.

The location is perfect, it is only a few minutes from the national park and the downtown area. We visited downtown everyday - the foods and shops are great. It's a very clean area and the people there are so friendly.

Aaron was great to work with and we plan to visit "the house on the rocks" for our next CO trip.

I would recommend this house to anyone staying in the Estes Park area.

Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful house - we all loved it!
