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.

The Perfect Fall Colorado Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Two adult nieces and I stayed at Deer Mountain Estate for a fall holiday. I selected this property because of its location, and for "the best views of Rocky Mountains". Communications with Curtis the homeowner before and after the trip were pleasant and timely.

The views from the home were indeed spectacular and filled our eyes whether inside the house, on the deck or walking outside. Fall was in full swing, and the bull elk were in rut, so appreciated our proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park. By day we hiked in the park and took the thrilling drive up Trail Ridge Road. We also took a day trip loop to Boulder on Hwy 36, then up Boulder Canyon to Nederland and back to Estes Park on the Peak to Peak Highway (beautiful views of the fall colors and the other side of Long's Peak). We grocery shopped in Estes Park and spent a fun afternoon at their fall festival, did a bit of touristy shopping and dropped into the public library to print our boarding passes.

Back at the house we had ample space for both alone and together time. We cooked in the well-equipped kitchen, played pool, watched movies (we loved the downstairs couch for this purpose), relaxed in the hot tub and spent memorable evenings on the deck talking, listening to the elk bugle and were even treated to coyotes howling. One evening we played the Game of Life. The wifi was solid. Everything we could have possibly wanted or needed was there. Our stay was beyond what I'd hoped for and set the backdrop for a perfect fall Colorado getaway.

This is a great place in a great location.

The things that we loved about this cabin are the fabulous view, accessibility to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, the updated amenities and the responsive and kindness of the owners. We could truly come back after a long hike and just relax as if we were at home. This is a larger cabin and had more space than we needed but we would stay here again with or without a larger party.

We absolutely loved our stay here! Every night we would all sit out on the front deck & enjoy the view :) Plenty of room for everyone in the rooms & a great kitchen where we made a few meals. I would definitely recommend it to any good size group :) Note that check in time is @ 5pm, so we had to rearrange our plans a bit for the late check in time. Other than that it was perfect!

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.
