About Curtis Lee Wells

We live and work in Wyoming. Deer Mountain Estate will be our retirement home in a few years but for now you are welcome to enjoy it. It is a great place to entertain our family and friends, walking the 355 miles of park trails, or maybe just a scenic drive on the highest continuously paved highway in the US.

Curtis Lee Wells purchased this estate in 2012

Why Curtis Lee Wells chose Rocky Mountain National Park

For the last a few years, we have been looking for a dream retirement place.Our house has everything. Close to the Park, close to the down town, the privacy of a cul-de-sac, and the best views in Estes Park. Nothing better than having a breakfast on the private patio and enjoying the views into the Park or the sunset from the deck in the evening.

What makes this estate unique

From our back yard you can get on a game trail, walk to the top of the hill and be on the Rocky Mountain National Park trail system. You may go to the Beaver Meadows Entrance (1.5mi) and hop on a bus and ride all day--why not--It's free.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to visit this stunning and relaxing home. We were pleasantly surprised by the recent remodeling. All new paint and flooring and an extensive kitchen remodel. This home has it all, a killer view of the mountains and perfectly located between Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary while there. We loved sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and listening to the elk bugle near by. We shared our vacation with another couple and the house easily accommodated us. We did have a mishap (totally our fought) and the owner answered us immediately and was kind enough to ease our minds. we will definitely be back!!

Five Star Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations! It was beautiful, clean, and spacious. The view from the large picture window was inspirational. The kitchen was well stocked with the cookware that we needed. Everything that was posted was onsite and in great condition. We would recommend this home to anyone longing for time away with family in Estes Park. The owner was helpful and very responsive to our questions. 5 stars.... absolutely! Can't wait to return.

Amazing Views and incredible hosts. My wife and I visisted Estes Park in April 2014 and couldnt wait to return with another couple to share our find. We picked Deer Mountain Estate for the view and accomodations and couldnt have been more pleased. This property is at the end of a cul-de-sac overlooking a bit of the valley with incredible views from the deck. Starting our mornings early with a cup of coffee on the deck listening to the elk bugle in the valleys below is hard to describe. The master bedroom is more like a suite with it's signicant size, large bathroom and walk in closet. We liked that the hottub was located right off of the Master Bedroom. The location couldnt have been better! My wife loved the big dining room table that offered a mountaing view and was right next to the fireplace. A short drive to RMNP (2 minutes) and only a few minute drive to the restaurants as well. As I mentioned, we traveled as 2 adult couples for our trip in September and are looking forward to traveling back in late June to early July with our daughters and know that Deer Mountain Estate will be the perfect spot! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Spectacular Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 adult children gathered with my husband and me for a truly lovely Thanksgiving. The Cub Lake and Gem Lake hikes were spectacular, and the house is comfortable and inviting. We cooked a turkey dinner in the kitchen and served it by the fire.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house to rent for your mountain vacation. This house was in a great location, just out of town and very close to the park entrance. It's at the end of a road and up a good distance so it's very private (even though there was a house next door). The views are fabulous and it was very peaceful sitting on the deck looking at the scenery.

The house was very clean and spacious and had plenty of linens. The master bedroom was huge and comfortable. If upstairs gets too warm, go downstairs, it's much cooler. Temperature was comfortable for us but it wasn't that hot out.

My hubby was pleased with the new pool table. I tried to figure out the TV downstairs to watch net flicks but couldn't get it too work Maybe better directions next to the TV would help. We did use the hot tub. It was just ok. It's small and some of the jets didn't work but it was clean and felt good after a long hike. There is a very nice sitting area right next to the hot tub just outside the master bedroom, great for reading a book and relaxing.

My one complaint would be that it wasn't really stocked that well. It had plenty of dishes but could use some more pots and pans. It also didn't have very many condiments which most rental houses stock. We only cook breakfast so it wasn't a big deal for us. There is a grocery store at the end of the road so it you do need something you don't have to go too far. There is also a great restaurant for breakfast (The Other Side Restaurant) right next to the store.

Overall this is a great rental and I highly recommend it. I would definitely stay here again if I am in this area.
