About Jay Vetter

We retired to Estes Park in 2013 after living in Nebraska for 40 years.

Jay Vetter purchased this studio in 2009

Why Jay Vetter chose Rocky Mountain National Park

The property includes a home in which we live and garage with a loft apartment above it in addition to the cottage. We bought it as our retirement home because of its location and great mountain views. We have vacationed here regularly since 1970 and have always wanted to spend more time here.

What makes this studio unique

We appreciate that we have extra space for family to visit and are also able to generate a little extra income while welcoming guests who love this area as much as we do.

Perfect Cottage!! Close to downtown and RMNP!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin!! The kitchen had everything I we needed and we loved sitting on the deck and looking at the beautiful mountains. The bed was super comfortable and having the nice deep tub to soak in after hiking all day was so nice! We have stayed in many places and this one was our favorite by far! Super fast return on our deposit. Can't wait to return.

Perfect retreat in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was a genuine 5-star experience for me, who has a tendency to work long hours at an often stressful, non-stop job. I was looking for privacy, quiet, nature and a self-contained place and I feel I got so much more. I especially enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the river passing down below with the constant sound of water, the spacious and clean Cottage living area, the beautiful views, the jacuzzi bathtub, the walk into Rocky Mtn Park access, and being away from the busy town of Estes Park and all its tourists. The wifi was reliable, and the kitchen was amazingly well stocked. Overall very comfortable. The owner Jay was accessible when needed but not overly so.

I would definitely recommend the Cottage to anyone who visits Rocky Mnt Nat'l Park, and plan to come here again.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this little cottage! Was very cozy and had everything we needed. It was cool enough at night so we could use the fireplace. Very nice. We even saw some resident elk in the back yard by the brook. Very close to RMNP. Glad we were there last week as they got 3 feet of snow today!! Thanks, Jay and Marilyn, for sharing your cottage with us!

Wonder little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is just perfect! The views are amazing, and the location can't be beat. We were 5 minutes or less from gate to RMNP. We had deer near the brook right outside the cabin. The Elk were everywhere. The owner is so helpful giving you tips on places to go during your visit and sharing great history of Estes Park. The cabin is a perfect size for 2 and so cozy warm with the propane fire place. We would highly recommend this cabin!
