If you want an extraordinary mountain home in Estes Park that is perfect for families and has tons of room (not to mention absolutely stunning views)... look no further. Summer 2011 (may-sept) is booked solid but there are still some spring and fall dates open... so inquire now!
OVERALL HOME: With over 6600sqft in living space, this log style two story home is one of the largest and nicest rental homes in all of Colorado. It is situated on over one acre natural lot with trees, rock outcroppings, and abundant wildlife. It is on a paved street and has a large paved circular driveway. Without the optional master suite, it features 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3 living/sitting areas, 2 fireplaces, a game room, over 2400 sqft in decks, and yes… even a one-of-a-kind indoor basketball court!!!
THE VIEWS: The house is situated right at the base of the continental divide and is surrounded by panoramic views of Twin Sister's (13,000'+), Long's Peak (14'000'+), and the continental divide itself.
Most of the view is of Rocky Mountain National Park peaks.
THE BEDDING SET-UP: Yes... six bedrooms! Everyone could possibly have their own if you used the den and added the master suite (usually not included for non-peak rentals but can be). And they are all very nice size...all larger than the average bedroom and all with larger than average closets. The bedrooms feature the following bedding set-ups all with themed décor that match native animals in the park including elk (king), bear (king), bear cub (2 twins), mountain lion(queen), trout (2 twins), and moose (queen).
THE MAIN LIVING AREA: The huge professional kitchen features granite counters, maple wood cabinets, double oven, professional series separate refrigerator and freezer, desk area with wirless internet, and a unique outdoor kitchen (10’ by 10’ upper deck with built-in 8ft stainless steel grill – just outside the main kitchen through glass French doors).
The main living room features lots of open space with comfortable furniture, a billiards area, a nostalgic winter sports décor, and a large screen TV/fireplace/200+ DVD library all built into a dramatic slate wall.
SPECIAL FEATURES: The over 2400 sqft+ in decks (three upper and two lower connected with a wood bridge) feature an outdoor ping pong table, a large hot tub, wood/log furniture including gliders and swings, and 2 picnic tables. Also outside is a very nice horseshoe court, 1800's rustic trail wagon, and a retired 6 person ski gondola. Other features include a 2.5 story atrium with bear water fountain, a 2nd living room with fireplace, up to 4 bathrooms, and a two car garage.
INCREDIBLE MASTER SUITE: The two-and-a-half story 1000 sqft master suite is usually included for peak season rentals but not usually for non-peak rentals (but sometimes can be). It features the master bedroom (with king bed, built in TV, desk, sitting area, and 2.5 story ceiling), a deluxe wet bar,
(with granite counter, double sink, small fridge, and maple cabinets), an amazing master bathroom (with huge garden tub and large extended tiled area with 4 shower heads), and a private deck (with log swing).
And despite the excellent all around qualities of the home, the best feature may just be the wildlife. Sited on the property have been coyotes, foxes, marmots, ground squirrels, black bears, and literally hundreds of birds and mule deer. And of course too numerous to mention... the herds of elk. As a matter of fact, over 50 elk were counted on the property at one time (actually multiple times!).
