Great home, thoughtfully appointed

  • 5 of 5

First, it's a great looking home, well kept, and with wonderful views. That's what hits you initially. But what really stands out over a few days' stay is how thoughtfully appointed it is, especially in the kitchen. We're used to having to make a special run for a spice or two or for some of the other kitchen basics. You end up spending a lot of extra money for something that you use 1% of. Not here. Really a nice surprise on top of a beautiful and comfortable home.

The house is even more beautiful and convenient than expected

  • 5 of 5

This was a top notch luxury Rocky Mountain experience for me and my three friends. We each had our own room with plenty of space and privacy. The beds and linens were comfortable and good quality. The house has quality finishes throughout and is modern and relatively new. The kitchen was well equipped. There were plenty of incidental supplies like paper towels and spices. The views from the living room and deck are gorgeous and expansive. We saw deer in the yard and elk a couple hundred yards away. Owners communicated well. My only suggestion for improvement would be to get rid of the air freshener sticks. They are not needed. The house is clean. So we just stuck them all away in cupboards. Good wi-fi included too. Thank you! I recommend this place and would come back again.

Perfect location and stunning stars!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this cabin! The home itself is full of beautiful furniture, has a fully stocked kitchen, and has very comfortable beds (our group only used used the king and queen beds). The master bathroom has double sinks and showers and so much room to spread out. We enjoyed watching playoff baseball in the basement and used the fireplace on our last day when the wind made it impossible to venture out. The deck was perfect for star-gazing. I had never seen the Milky Way until my stay in Colorado - really incredible! (Estes Park keeps the light pollution to a minimum in order to maximize the experience). Overall, we have zero complaints, many compliments! (Our only suggestion would be to extend the deck around the front of the house one day!)

The real treat is the location - we were close enough that we could zip in and out of the national park in just a few minutes. It was really convenient and we had a perfect home base for all of the hiking and animal watching that we did. The owners were also kind enough to provide us with a list of the best hikes, the best restaurants, the best places to see animals, etc. We used their list religiously and we were not disappointed - great food and lots of stunning scenery on our hikes! (Not to mention the elk, but they were sort of everywhere we looked, so we didn't really have to hunt for long!)

I fully recommend the cabin. It is 'as-pictured,' but even better. We have great memories and will definitely return during our next visit to Rocky Mountain National Park! :)

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer! It's sometimes hard to explain the view of the stars out here especially from the deck and you are spot on. Glad you enjoyed that and happy to hear that the recommendations came in handy. Thank you for staying! (And yes, how about those elk this time of year?!?)

About Mary Ann Denninghoff and Mike Plackemeier

Midwest boy meets east coast girl, add 6 children with a variety of interests and that's pretty much us!

Mary Ann Denninghoff and Mike Plackemeier purchased this house in 2012

Why Mary Ann Denninghoff and Mike Plackemeier chose Venner Ranch Estates

We chose this particular location to build for its breathtaking views and proximity to the Park and downtown. Having spent most our vacation time since 1986 here in Estes Park we couldn't choose a more comfortable location. Lots of memories and traditions were built here along with tons of outdoor activities to please our large family

What makes this house unique

The elevation of this property gives a feeling of being 'away from it all'. This is a large lot with beautiful pines and rock outcropping which attracts all kinds of birds and wildlife. It borders BLM ground giving it an even more spacious setting.
