We are completely booked for summer 2017 June through August. We do have some dates in September and October. Contact owner directly with any questions. 757-879-5439.

OVERALL HOME: With over 6600sqft in living space, this log style two story home is one of the largest and nicest rental homes in all of Colorado. It is situated on over one acre natural lot with trees, rock outcroppings, and abundant wildlife. It is on a paved street and has a large paved circular driveway. Including the master suite, it features 8 bedrooms, 4 baths, 3 living/sitting areas, 2 fireplaces, outdoor fire pit, a game room, over 2400 sqft in decks, and yes… even a one-of-a-kind indoor basketball court!!!

THE VIEWS: The house is situated right at the base of the continental divide and is surrounded by panoramic views of Twin Sister's (13,000'+), Long's Peak (14'000'+), and the continental divide itself. Most of the view is of Rocky Mountain National Park peaks.

THE BEDDING SET-UP: Yes... eight bedrooms! Enough for everyone to have their own. And they are all very nice size...all larger than the average bedroom and all with larger than average closets. The bedrooms feature the following bedding set-ups all with themed décor that match native animals in the park including master(king), elk(king), bear(king), bear cub(2 twins), mountain lion(queen), trout(queen), moose(queen) and bunk room with two sets of bunk beds for a total of 18 beds.

THE MAIN LIVING AREA: The huge professional kitchen features granite counters, maple wood cabinets, double oven, professional series separate refrigerator and freezer, desk area with wireless internet, and a unique outdoor kitchen (10’ by 10’ upper deck with built-in 8ft stainless steel grill – just outside the main kitchen through glass French doors). The main living room features lots of open space with comfortable furniture, a billiards area, a nostalgic winter sports décor, and a large screen HDTV, 2 gas fireplaces/200+ DVD library all built into a dramatic slate wall.

SPECIAL FEATURES: The over 2400 sqft+ in decks (three upper and two lower connected with a wood bridge) feature an outdoor ping pong table, a large hot tub, wood/log furniture including gliders and swings, and 2 picnic tables. Also outside is a very nice horseshoe court, and a 1800's rustic trail wagon. Other features include a 2.5 story atrium with bear water fountain, a 2nd living room with fireplace, 4 bathrooms, and a two car garage.

INCREDIBLE MASTER SUITE: 1000sqft master suite is It features the master bedroom (with king bed, built in TV, desk, sitting area, and 2.5 story ceiling), a deluxe wet bar (with granite counter, double sink, small fridge, and maple cabinets), an amazing master bathroom (with huge garden tub and large extended tiled area with 4 shower heads), and a private deck.

THE WILDLIFE: And despite the excellent all around qualities of the home, the best feature may just be the wildlife. Sited on the property have been coyotes, foxes, marmots, badgers, ground squirrels, black bears, and literally hundreds of birds and mule deer. And of course too numerous to mention... the herds of elk. As a matter of fact, over 50 elk were counted on the property at one time (actually multiple times!).

Events: Please be aware that we have lots of 50th wedding anniversaries, retirement and other celebrations. We also have many families celebrating weddings stay at our home. Please be aware that we are not allowed to have weddings or other events where others are invited to the home. We will allow a family to have relatives come for dinner but that must be requested when booking. The Town of Estes Park currently regulates parking so we are only allowed to have 3 cars in the driveway and 2 in the garage for a total of 5 cars. Please feel free to call or email with any questions. We will do our best to accommodate you.

About Julie Reichle

We are a family of 5 and we love to be active and surrounded by nature. Wether it be the mountains, ocean or the desert, we enjoy visiting new places and meeting new people.

Julie Reichle purchased this house in 2011

Why Julie Reichle chose Rocky Mountain National Park

We visited Estes Park in 2011 and decided we eventually wanted to live here. An opportunity arose for us to purchase a home. We decided we had to have a piece of paradise for ourselves.

What makes this house unique

Simply one of the best locations in one of the most beautiful mountain towns in the country, The home is located between the downtown of Estes Park and the main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The setting is natural and park-like itself with abundant wildlife passing through year round. Even with limitless outdoor activities in the area, there are also extensive activities in the house including: ping-pong, billiards, basket ball court, air hockey, hot tub, and over 2000 sqft in decks with views that are just plain stunning!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to the Reichle's mountaing cabin to celebrate life and our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. We appreciated the fire pit, the hot tub, all the games/activities and the Awesome views! Thank you so much you were so kind and cooperative.

Love the views

  • 5 of 5

We came to Estes to celebrate my Mom’s birthday! The house was amazing, the views were spectacular and you could not get any closer to RMNP! Almost every room in this home has a view of the mountains! We enjoyed all the amenities especially the pool table and the basketball court. The home was ideal for us because it allowed us all to be together but had enough room for us to spread out. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds very comfortable. We cooked several large meals in the kitchen and really enjoyed the large table that sat 14 easily! It was the best stocked kitchen we have seen in a rental home with many dishes and appliances. We especially loved the full sized refrigerator and freezer. We loved this home and plan to come back. Julie was so easy to work with. She checked in with us when we arrived and made sure we could contact her if we needed anything. This is an amazing place to soak in the wildlife the views of Rocky Mountain National Park. A great time was had by all! This trip will not be forgotten!

Quick trip to the mountains

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This place was immaculate and the views are breathtaking. Our family decided to meet in CO last minute and we had to find a place that was large enough to hold us. The owners were super nice and easy to work with and provided everything we needed without any issue. The house was very clean and everything was in order. I especially enjoyed being outside and the decks provided a panoramic view of the mountains. The price was not too high considering the size of our group cause we certainly could not find a nicer place for less than we payed per couple. Will be back soon....Thanks Julie and Scott!!!!

a wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered to celebrate our mom's 90th birthday. Hard to find a lovelier place to accomodate all of us- arriving from all over with an age spread of 1 year olds to a 90 year old! We all had space and lots of activities available right under the roof as well as being so close to the gorgeous Rocky Mountain National Park. Julie was so helpful, easy to work with and I would love to recommend staying at her fabulous home!

Terrific vacation home with views, amenities galore

  • 5 of 5

This property is located very close to the entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park, and has spectacular views from virtually every room. The house was very well equipped for a large group, the bedding was very comfortable, and there were plenty of "toys" for our kids of all ages to enjoy throughout the week.

The owner was very attentive and informative.. Our group enjoyed lots of hiking, a horseback trail ride, golfing, and walking the downtown.

This is a high recommend house for large family gatherings or groups of adults looking to share a special vacation home.

Beautiful home. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

To sum up this property in one word: WOW! Perfect for a family reunion. We rented as two couples. With the 2 king bedding rooms upstairs we both had sufficient privacy. Great location to the park. But if the weather is rainy the home boasts ample games and family fun activities. The home is equipped with all the cooking gear you need. House is clean and well maintained. Back deck fire pit wasn't working so the property manager came by with a new one. Lower level spa was heavily chlorinated, however that was reasonable per the prior guests being a family reunion. Wildlife comes to visit every evening in the back. Such fun to see the deer and elk. This was our favorite rental over the 6 years we have come to Estes Park. We hope to rent it during our stay next year.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $425
Refundable damage deposit $500
Tax Rate 10.55%

Damage Deposit:
We require a separate refundable damage deposit which is due 2 weeks prior to rental and returned after rental. We do not include this in the damage protection section because the website payment section is set up to collect it much
earlier than the rental.

Payments:
Required payments may differ than those listed on the VRBO quote. We often book up to 2 years in advance and we like to be able to change payment terms for these rentals because they are so far in advance. Please send an inquiry instead of a Request to book so that we may make these adjustments. If you use Request to Book or Book it Now we are unable to make some of those changes.

We prefer payment via echeck through VRBO or paper check. We will accept credit card for the first payment with no fee. For the second and later payments we require echeck or paper check. If you would like to use credit card for the second or later payments we charge a 3% fee which is what we are charged. 01/11/2017
