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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ed,

We had a lovely time getting to know our future daughter-in-law and catching up with our sons. The view is spectacular as promised.

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!

Close to it all

  • 5 of 5

The perfect Estes Park location. Just two minutes from the south entrance to RMNP and not much farther from downtown Estes Park make this an ideal location for exploring the area. House was very clean and supplied with most everything you will need. Spent most days hiking RMNP and the house made a nice place to come back to and relax. Nice deck to enjoy your morning coffee and sunrise, grill and eat dinner, and do some stargazing. Would return here again.
