About Dean

We've lived in Estes Park for 20 years and love it! We've both worked on behalf of Rocky Mountain National Park and believe it to be a very special place.

Dean purchased this house in 2004

Why Dean chose Venner Ranch Estates

Estes Park is a great vacation destination - for the stunning scenery and hiking found in Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as for the unique experience of the town of Estes Park, where families enjoy the unique shops, restaurants and area attractions.

What makes this house unique

Views, Views and then some more Continental Divide Views. This Home is unique even to Estes Park with its location on a ridge half way up Prospect Mountain. Elk, deer, bobcat, coyote and bear frequent the area. Enjoy all of this while relaxing in the hot tub on the private deck. At the Overlook House, you are minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as the town of Estes Park.

Retreat with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

The Overlook House is a great place to stay for exploring RMNP. Close enough to Estes Park for the essentials, but far enough away for a peaceful place to rest after hiking. We enjoyed the stunning views from every window and the deck, and were treated to gorgeous sunrises with snow-capped peaks in late September. The house is comfortable and well appointed. Dean was very responsive to my questions and provided detailed instructions for the house. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

Stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Two thumbs up for this house! Amazing view from the house and deck. Still very close to all the amenities of Estes Park and the entrance to RMNP. The house was very clean and everything worked properly, very well equipped kitchen. We loved the hot tub at night with views of the Milky Way!

Perfect respite in the mountains!!

  • 5 of 5

After a few days in Denver on business, the Overlook House was the perfect setting for a tranquil time relaxing and exploring the Rocky Mountain National Park. On step into the great room with panoramic views of the Rockies, and you see where the name came from. With so many decks and windows, the spectaculat views of the mountains are always on dislay at the Overlook House. As an added bonus, it is in a "Dark Sky" community - so the night sky lit up with millions of stars! Sipping wine in the Hot Tub was the perfect way to end a day of hiking in the Rockies. I look forward to returning to RMNP and the Overlook House!

Overlook House says it all.

  • 5 of 5

5 of us recently stayed at this wonderful home for 3 nights. I wish I would have booked it for longer. Easy communication from Dean and made sure we also had an easy way to reach him during our stay. Directions up the mountain were easy to follow. We really enjoyed its private location, and the views from the multiple decks were expansive, overlooking the valley.

The home was everything we older travelers were looking for.3 level home( two nice bedrooms and bath with shower on first floor. Up a level you had another half back, a large, well equipped kitchen and appliances worked great and flawlessly. It had a small deck of it, another side deck, A large comfortable living area with additional dining table useful for our groups dinners, Wood fireplace looked inviting but had no wood, We will know next time to import some in. Large main deck off of living room with hot tub for our use after multiple hikes, day trips and 29 mile bike rind down the winding road from the top of the Alpine back to Estes. FUN FUN FUN!!!

Upstairs top level very lovely, large master bedroom, again with beautiful views off that deck, too! and a very large double vanity in bathroom which had tub and shower. Used the w/d to catch up on clothes, which is a nice touch if you have more traveling to do,

We would definitely stay at this property again if they will have us, Thanks Dean and Family for allowing us to experience such a lovely home and home we can make it back! Saw Elk and muledeer around the house, but missed the bears,

Lovely vacation home on top of it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (kids age 8,7,3, and 1) just stayed at Overlook House. It couldn't have been more perfect. The kitchen was fully stocked and even had some nice extras like dish soap, plastic bags for sandwiches, spices etc. The loft upstairs had toys (duplos), books and board games that my kids enjoyed at night. Even better is the deck with tons of fun boulders to climb on, a great hot tub, and plenty of outdoor eating spaces. The pictures don't do it justice. The location is great, taking only about 10 minutes to get to the entrance of RMNP. And the views are spectacular! We enjoyed this house and will would love to come back!
