About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 7) SAT to SAT only in summer

The Twin Owls House offers guests a relaxing and comfortable stay in a classic & immaculate Estes Park home. You will love the spacious outdoor property that is frequented by elk, deer, and the occasional bear, coyote, fox or bobcat.

Whether you enjoy sitting on the front porch, back patio or laying in the hammock, the natural beauty of the area surrounds you. This 1,600 square foot home is on 1.3 acres with mature pines in a quiet neighborhood that offers convenience to downtown Estes Park, grocery and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Twin Owls house is two blocks from downtown Estes Park, three blocks from the historic Stanley Hotel, .25 miles from the Twin Owls Steakhouse and one mile from hiking trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. Close enough to be convenient but away from the hustle and bustle.

The picture windows in the kitchen, dining room and living room provide beautiful views of Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park and other surrounding rock formations. The spacious living room is furnished with a sofa and love seat near the fireplace, two comfortable recliners and an additional pullout queen-size sofa.

There is a game table with chairs, games and books. One bedroom has a queen bed with dresser and mirror. Another bedroom has bunk beds and one twin bed and dresser. The third bedroom has a queen size bed, night stand and dresser.

The two full-size bathrooms are clean and bright with towels provided. The dining area has a large oak dining table with chairs to seat nine. The view from the dining room is always beautiful looking out to the mature Ponderosa pines that grace the property. The fully equipped kitchen is a pleasant place to be with more views! A full size washer and dryer are available for your use in the basement.

This smoke-free, pet-free home is perfect for a family get-together where there's enough room for groups to spread out for various activities or to be together playing games, cooking, eating or watching a movie. This is a child-friendly house. Sorry, no weddings, parties or family reunions.

Perfect home for families. Safe, quiet residential area where you will welcomed and relaxed.

About Margie Hauser

We are a family run business. Mike takes care of the dirty and really hard work! Margie takes care of the booking process, cleaning, maintaining and updating the house. The kids help rake pine needles and contribute to the toy closet. Margie will be the one you most likely talk to. I always like to meet my guests, give a tour and answer any questions about the house, neighborhood, town and Rocky Mountain National Park.

I've lived in Estes Park for 35 years and enjoy sharing my love and knowledge of the area.

Margie Hauser purchased this house in 2004

Why Margie Hauser chose Rocky Mountain National Park

Twin Owls House is adjacent to our family home. Our dear friends used to own the house for 20 years before we bought it. We grew very sentimentally attached to this beautiful home. It is truly a historic Estes Park home that has been cared for so graciously. We take extra good care of this charmer and think it sits on one of the best lots in town. Since we live next door it is easy for us to maintain and to be available for our guests should they need anything.

What makes this house unique

IMMACULATE, QUIET,BRIGHT! This house is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. It's on a large lot with one of the biggest and oldest Ponderosa pine trees in the Estes Valley. There are gorgeous trees, a meadow and nice views of Lumpy Ridge. It's easy to enjoy the outdoors with the front deck, back patio, hammock and comfortable Amish furniture in the yard. There's always wildlife passing through and when indoors, you can see it all with the big picture windows.

Great Estes Home! Super Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic family place in Estes! The house worked great for our family, our two youngest loved the toy closet. Overall, the home is just cozy and comfortable. The grounds are great too! A ton of space for kids to roam around, ride bikes, etc.

The owner is very easy to communicate with, very willing to put all efforts forward to make sure our stay was a great one. We will be back again!

Wonderful time in the mountains, in a perfect home

  • 5 of 5

This was approximately our eighth stay at the Twin Owls House, and it was fantastic as always.

The house is large and clean, and with the owners living right next door, if anything should go wrong, it is quickly dealt with. The location of the house is nearly perfect for our family. It's tucked into a quiet neighborhood, and yet one can walk to downtown Estes Park in about 15 minutes (and thus avoid having to find a place to park). We see elk wondering through the property almost every day. My wife cannot get enough of the shady hammock.

I give the Twin Owls House my highest possible recommendation.

Loved our week at Twin Owls!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the first week in September here and loved it! The house is just a short walk from downtown, yet the property is very large and private. The home is so spacious and comfortable and the toy closet is fabulous! This is a VRBO that we want to visit again.

Great house for kids

  • 4 of 5

We rented twin owl house in May- margin was most helpful prior to us arriving- she gave us loads of information about este park and provided us with up to date weather forecast as well- ensuring that we packed for the anticipated snow! The house was warm, clean and spacious! The kids loved the toys. We loved the place- especially the single level living which meant there was no fear of the kids falling down the stairs- especially for our one year old twins! The property provided easy access to the Rockies which we loved!

A fantastic property a short walk from downtown estes, but far enough away to be quiet and secluded. Elk in the yard daily and a fantastic view of the Twin Owls.Amazingly clean with all the ameneties. We can't wait to get back! Make reservations soon because they fill up quickly, for good reason!
