About Jason Miller

They took this Property which was formerly a B & B and then turned it into what it is TODAY. A Colorado Friendly Property with a lot of BENEFITS. We have a great website to show you additional info concerning The Rustic Acre. It is With multiple listings on VRBO, you are sure to find the right one. #505516, 505517, 505518, 511596,

Jason Miller purchased this house in 2013

Why Jason Miller chose Rocky Mountain National 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.

Perfect Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband, and our 2 dogs stayed here for 5 days and it truly was like a home away from home. The location was absolutely perfect! Just far away from the crazy traffic, but just close enough to be within 3 minutes of everything. We specifically chose this place because of it's proximity to RMNP and other places where we could take our pups hiking and it couldn't have worked out better.

The house itself was decorated in the most adorable way. You can really tell the owners take great pride in their property and put a lot of work and love in to make this place perfect for their guests.The couches and beds are very comfortable and the bedroom was very quiet, allowing us to rest up for our big hikes. The kitchen and bathroom were very well equipped with everything we needed too. Sitting in the jacuzzi tub to soak after a long day of hiking might have been one of my favorite things! This place was obviously very well thought out.

The owners gave us great instructions before checking in, which made things so easy and stress free. When we pulled up, we were pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to find our home for 5 days. One thing I really appreciated was that they put a list together of their favorite restaurants, stores, and hikes - which we used a ton! They said to call or text if we needed anything, but there was absolutely nothing more that we could have asked for. The place was perfect.

We absolutely will be back and I truly can't wait. This was by far the best place I've booked through VRBO. Thank you Jason and Joanne for putting so much love into this place. Our family made very special memories that we'll never forget.

First time VRBO renters, great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was out first vacation as a family of 5, of which three small kids, aged 3 to 7. Our last vacation was before kids many years ago, me and my wife only, and we used hotels.

We really enjoyed staying at the Owl's Lodge. The view of the mountains was great. The lodge is very "lodgy" :-) It is spacious (can host upstairs many more than 3 kids provided that you bring inflatable beds), it has everything a family needs (plates, pots, pans, silverware, etc). Far enough from the town's downtown but close enough for practical purposes (5 mins away). The combination of buying groceries from Safeway (an HEB like grocery store) and ability to cook at home optimized the overall cost structure of the vacation.

Kids enjoyed playing outside, there is a fire pit for lovely camp fires and marshmallows. There is even free beer in a keg! (unlike overpriced bar in a hotel).

The host Miller family is very welcoming, and very responsive to all additional requests. They are nice, hard working people, and were dedicated for us to have a wonderful vacation. Which we did!

Well located, very clean, and nice accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well located to all of Estes Park, and in close proximity to RMNP. We were easily able to get to all the sights and local spots we desired, and the views from the property were fantastic.

The cabin was spacious for our family of 6, was very clean, nicely furnished, and the kitchen well equipped. We definitely felt more at home than at a rental.

The owners were onsite and very welcoming. They obviously take pride in their property and it shows. They were quick to respond if we had questions, concerns, or needed any additional supplies.

We were very pleased with our stay, and will look to stay here again on our next visit to Estes Park.

Awesome Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably our 5th stay at Rustic Acres and each time it has been wonderful! We stayed at the Twin Owls this time and the cabin is beautifully decorated and beds are very comfortable! Beautiful views as well. Jason has always been such a great host and he's always there when you need anything. We will continue to stay there when we return to Estes Park.

Great place for families as well!

Great property and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by Jason and Joanne. Their property is beautiful, with plenty of space, and everything we needed for our family of six. The beds were very comfortable, and our boys loved staying in the loft. Mornings were beautiful in Estes, and we already miss being up there. We could not have asked for a better Father's Day weekend, and definitely hope to visit again! Thank you, Jason and Joanne.
