About Curtis Lee Wells

We live and work in Wyoming. Deer Mountain Estate will be our retirement home in a few years but for now you are welcome to enjoy it. It is a great place to entertain our family and friends, walking the 355 miles of park trails, or maybe just a scenic drive on the highest continuously paved highway in the US.

Curtis Lee Wells purchased this estate in 2012

Why Curtis Lee Wells chose Estes Park

For the last a few years, we have been looking for a dream retirement place.Our house has everything. Close to the Park, close to the down town, the privacy of a cul-de-sac, and the best views in Estes Park. Nothing better than having a breakfast on the private patio and enjoying the views into the Park or the sunset from the deck in the evening.

What makes this estate unique

From our back yard you can get on a game trail, walk to the top of the hill and be on the Rocky Mountain National Park trail system. You may go to the Beaver Meadows Entrance (1.5mi) and hop on a bus and ride all day--why not--It's free.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights at Deer Mt. Estate and it was everything we had hoped for. It is "close" to town but not in town. The views were so beautiful, and we felt we had the mountain to ourselves. There even was a view from the kitchen sink!The deck was a favorite hangout morning, noon, & night.

The house has many stairs, so if that is a concern, this is not the house for you. However, we had plenty of space for 6 adults and 2 children to spread out and have privacy when wanted .It also helped to have 3 bathrooms and a laundry area. I'd give this the highest rating.

Owner's Response: Thank You for the great review. We call in "in town" because it is in the city limits and has city water, some homes have their water trucked in. Because it is on a cul-de-sac and the edge of town there is privacy. You were great guests and we hope you stay with us in the future. Curtis

Great mountain views from the house and deck!

  • 4 of 5

A well appointed house off 34 very close to RMNP. Really could sleep 8 and plenty of room to spread out for meals and relaxation. Except for the kitchen, which seemed newly redone with state of the art appliances, the rest of the house was not updated, though it was in good repair and very functional. This house would be perfect for a large family or group. The owner, Mr Wells was very attentive and responded quickly during booking and when I had questions.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The kitchen and the upstairs living area was remodeled last year and the downstairs bedroom was redone this year. We remodel different rooms each year and hope to get two rooms this winter. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Curtis
