Amazing property for big get togethers.

  • 5 of 5

This property is so much more than the pictures show. Great outside space to hang out for nights on end. Only thing was the home came by the house multiple times a day which become annoying. Home owners are nice, but when your rented your space out, you shouldn't be there as much as the guests. Not anything to ruin the stay though. It was fabulous.

Owner's Response: We are glad Jackies wedding was a success. Aside from the ten maximum overnight guests there were several camping tents in the front yard which is not allowed and created increased vigilance on our part. Nevertheless Jackie took good care of the property and managed to put almost everything back where it belonged with a little encouragement from us

This place was fantastic. Our group of 10 fit well. We had one child sleeping on the couch. This place was stunning and very very well maintained. Great drive to Estes Park so we could enjoy Estes Park daily. We ate every meal outside on the patio next to the pond. We will be booking back for years to come. The kitchen had every seasoning, pot, or pan we would ever need. Thanks for a great vacation!

Absolutely amazing property in a serene setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Mr. and Mrs. Houston's beautiful property in the canyon! There was more than enough space for the 9 of us between the main cabin and the guest house. Immaculate views of the mountains to the west, and being right on the Big Thompson River was such a great experience! Or family has already planned to make this an annual stay as long as it's available! Would recommend this to anyone looking for a better alternative to a cramped hotel room. Can't wait to go back!!!

Fell in Love

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more pleased with our stay at this property. It was so beautiful and peaceful. The house was clean, spacious and so comfortable. Just felt like a home away from home, but with incredible scenery and character. If it wasn't snowing, we would have spent all our time outside enjoying the amazing patio, and relaxing by the fire pit out by the river at night. I can't wait until our next visit to Colorado so we can enjoy another stay here. Thank you to the Houston family for sharing your amazing home, and being so wonderful to work with.
