Jason Miller purchased this house in 2013

Why Jason Miller chose Estes Park

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Great views of mountains all around us and so close to town it is just awesome. We have been looking at Estes for a while now. This property came up for sale, so we took a family vote. With a 16 yr old daughter and 14 yr old son, I thought that I would have a challenge ahead of me with convincing them. Low and behold, 100% = Let's go to Colorado!

There has been no regrets and we Love Colorado.

We have 2 Resident dogs which just LOVE people. Marley is a black cocker spaniel and Daisy is a Golden Retriever Yellow Lab mix. We love dogs and encourage you to bring yours here on vacation.

This property previously was The Black Dog Inn Bed & Breakfast. The Millers will be living in the main home and renting out the unattached units around the rustic acre of property. We are a very FRIENDLY property. We do not judge by gender race, sexuality, or political views. We all just want to Get Along.

What makes this house unique

Located High above the town of Estes Park, our wooded acre has a commanding view of Lumpy Ridge (a well known rock climbing formation), Mummy Range, and Mt. Olympus. We are only a short 5 minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. The footpath in front of the property connects with the scenic Riverwalk and also the 4 mile path around Lake Estes. This property has Luxury accommodations at affordable rates. We are only 1/2 mile from town. We love to hike and spend time outdoors in the wonders of Nature. There are literally hundreds of hiking and climbing trails minutes from our front door. Longs Peak, Twin Owls, Mummy Mountain, Twin Sisters, Lilly Mountain, etc.

Cozy place with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came up from Littleton for our anniversary and just loved the place. It’s hard to find a pet friendly place that is nice. This place checked all the boxes for us and we will definitely be returning. The owners are great and truly care about their guests and the place. Highly recommend.

Nice place, nice folks, easy to rent, pet friendly

  • 3 of 5

Nice place, easy to rent, dog friendly. Central Estes location. There is a lot to like about twin owls...

A couple of issues though: The hotwater heater wouldnt fill the jaccuzi tub, tried twice, so we couldnt use it. The hardwood floors looked nice but were loud, cold, - the place could use some rugs, especially in the bath. We were shorted on washclothes and had no hand towels. The queen bed was superhard and high off the floor- please please get a softer king. The old elec range had its big burner out.

So overall, I would recommend this place. It was a good value. And I would rent it again if a couple of minor repairs/replacements.

Owner's Response: Hi Steven, Thank you for staying with us and Happy New Years A little disappointed in the review, because we strive fo 5 stars. We live on the property so all of those issues could have been taken care of. We didn't have any calls from you. All of our beds were bought a few months ago. We bought all medium.(not Hard or soft) Everyone has their own preference on the bed they sleep in. We checked the electric burner it was just loose and needed plugged in. As far as the hard wood floors, the place was built in 2006, long before we purchased it and are in good condition. We have floor towel rugs for the bath also. I am glad that you found a place that is dog friendly, which is hard to find in Estes. It takes us a little longer to clean a place after a dog has been there, that is why we asked for 15 a day for dogs. Thank again for saying you would recommend us, because it is our pride and joy that we put a lot of hard work into. Thanks Jason and Joanne

Nice property and great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! The location is perfect and our unit was nice and clean. I particularly enjoyed the large bath tub. I also respect the fact that although this property is pet friendly, the furniture, carpet and floors were immaculate. We don't allow our dog on our furniture either so I appreciate that you enforce that among your guests. I did notice that the guests staying there don't pick up their pet's dog poop which made it quite difficult to navigate where to go to let my dog relief herself. That would be the only thing I would strictly enforce. Perhaps guests feel that they don't have to pick up after their pet when paying the $15 daily pet fee, which is standard, but still should be expected. I would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend. Overall a really nice place and easy to reserve through VRBO.

Owner's Response: HI Cheryl, So glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes I agree on the dogs, I have 3 dogs of my own and go out everyday to pick up after them. Was thinking of getting a stand with bags like the city has, maybe that would help. I would hope that guests wouldn't think that 15 dollar fee is for me to pick up after them. The fee is for the extra cleaning its takes when someone has a very fluffy dog and we want the room to look like there wasn't a furry friend there. Just like your experience with your place. Thank you again for taking the time out to write about your stay. Jason and Joanne

Clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I had a great stay at Twin Owls. Jason and Joanne were very responsive with any minor issues. Twin Owls is just far enough out of town to be quiet, but still extremely easy to get to shops, groceries and RMNP. We had a nice view of the mountains, and were frequently graced with early morning visits from elk, deer, ground squirrels and even once from a coyote. The cabin was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable.

We definitely would stay again, and would recommend it to friends.
