Estes Park Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, sleeps 6 adults

From one of our guests (Somerset, England):

'We spent a fantastic week in this home. The house itself is excellent in terms of location, setting, decor and equipment with many thoughtful touches that added to the overall quality of our stay. The bedrooms are spacious, the den is excellent for children wanting their own space and the lounge and dining room make for a relaxed setting for a holiday. The house setting is picturesque whilst it is well located in relation to Estes Park...I wholeheartedly commend this home to anyone wishing to visit Colorado.'

The AlpineHaus is situated in the quiet, gated Blue Spruce Village Victorian community that has the Big Thompson River running through it and is ¼ mile outside the Estes Park city limits. The Rocky Mountain National Park Beaver Meadows Visitor Center and Park Headquarters are two miles from our vacation home and it is just a five minute drive to downtown Estes. The AlpineHaus is only ¼ mile from the original early 1900's entrance to the Park and a trailhead that leads to the Bear Lake/Moraine Park area, on the edge of the YMCA of the Rockies Conference and Activity Center.

Built in 2002, our three-level townhome has 2200 square feet of living space. The main level offers a greatroom with a stone fireplace (gas burning) and opens to a large deck with a picnic table and gas grill. Oak wainscoting and large windows adorn the greatroom and separate dining area with a large dining table. The fully-equipped kitchen and dining area have wood floors adding to the warmth and charm of this beautiful home. The main level greatroom also has a large LCD TV with a DVD player. Sit on the large deck to relax and view the elk, an occasional bear and other wildlife!

The upper level has three large bedrooms and a loft area with a game/puzzle table. The master bedroom has a king-size pine log bed and furnishings with a large bay window and jetted whirlpool tub in its private bathroom. The second bedroom also has a pine log queen bed and furnishings, two dormered windows and a private entrance to the second full bath (which also opens to the loft/hall area to share with the third bedroom). The third bedroom has a queen sized bed and a twin sized bed and dormered windows - perfect for a third couple or children.

The walkout lower level has a recreation room great for kids young and old with a LCD TV, DVD/VCR, video games, and patio area.

Walk fifty yards to the Big Thompson River for fly-fishing and relaxation. While our home is not directly on the river, the river runs through our private community and all owners and guests have access to common areas with picnic tables and seating areas.

Free Internet access via our broadband wireless connection (bring your laptop with wireless card if you need to check in at work occasionally or just want to surf the Net for various events going on in Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park while on vacation). Or perhaps you'll want to check the weather forecast prior to departing for a climb up Long's Peak!

The following are just a few more of the comments from our guest registry:

“It was great to come ‘home’ to this beautiful home each day. We travel the mountains every summer, and this is the best place we have ever stayed at!”

“One of the nicest places we have ever stayed in! You have a lovely home.”

'What a surprise to walk in your beautiful home!! Booking it on the internet was a bit scary but as soon as the door was opened, you could feel the warmth! A gorgeous setting and close to shopping, hiking and sightseeing. Can't wait to come back again!'

“We had a lot of wildlife here with a bear the first morning, deer and a fawn, beautiful birds…”

**Sorry, pets are not allowed and this is a no smoking residence**

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am so glad I chose your place to stay in over the others. My eyes lit up the second I walked inside your lovely home. We are here because my best friend is getting married this weekend. While other guests stayed at the Stanley, we are so glad we chose your place all to ourselves.

Like being home!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful place. Very cozy. We felt welcome and comfortable the minute we walked in the door. The house had all the necessities. We didn't want to leave.

Kathy and Conrad provided excellent instructions and information about everything we needed to know. They have been great to work with, as well as VRBO.

I world definitely recommend this home to others looking for a rental in Estes.

Thank you for making our vacation/anniversary trip an enjoyable one.

We so enjoyed our stay at Kathy's and Conrad's condo in Estes Park. It was beautiful, well kept and everything we needed. It was very peaceful. Two mornings our alarm clock was the bugle of a majestic bull elk right outside of our deck. What a wonderful experience.

Great home for a big family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our week in this lovely home.

My 9 year old grandson was over the moon with the arcade and video games.

My husband quickly claimed the table upstairs for tying flies for his fishing excursions.

There is ample room for family togetherness or a little quieter time with the two living room areas and large bedrooms.

We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook for 6, and grilled several times on the deck.

This house is in the part of Estes Park that is our long time favorite, along the Big Thompson river. Nothing beats falling asleep to the sound of that river!

We will definitely stay here again!
