Brilliant night skies and breathtaking sunsets are all part of the experience at this mountain home located midway between downtown and Rocky Mountain National Park.
Enjoy the views of Deer Mountain from the solitude of the private, furnished patio, while watching wildlife like elk, big-horn sheep, bobcats, and bears. There are even marmots chirping from the rock outcropping above the private hot tub.
This home features a well-equipped, full kitchen with a dishwasher, a great room with plentiful seating and a large, flatscreen TV over the gas fireplace. There is free WiFi, a private washer/dryer, a screened-in porch with a wood-burning fireplace, and a two-car detached garage.

This was the second time we have stayed at the Buckhead. This time was for a family wedding in Estes. The minute I heard the wedding was going to be in Estes, I went online to book the Buckhead! It is the perfect location. Feels secluded but very close to downtown, the grocery store as well as to RMNP. The decor is beautiful, there is every amenity you could ask for and SO clean! The wildlife was abundant every day right outside the house. Our grandchildren loved it and the four-year-old said “this is amazing!” when he first walked in the door. Will always try to book this property if we return to Estes!
My children my husband and I absolutely love this cabin. It is beautiful. There were tons of elk all around us. We do wish it the hot tub works though as it has had an issue everytime we went. Other than this cabin is amazing and we will be going back!
Perfect. Elk & deer in the yard. Hot tub. Nice walk to town. Near the National Park (back country and sledding). Big open area perfect for family reunion. Wonderful kitchen and kitchen utensils and machines (one stove but it worked fine for Thanksgiving as we did the turkey early). Easy in and out. Quiet.
So why the missing 1/2 star? Internet. It's there, but ... we expected rural speeds (a more than tolerable sacrifice when that close to the outdoors) but we didn't expect the connectivity issue. On my notebook it connected OK but only after I did the push button WPS approach (no IP address returned). Daughter connected just fine. Her husband couldn't connect no matter what he tried. When your kids join you for a week, it's expected that they will work a few of the days. It's something that should be fixed and I'm sure you will hear from the owner when it is. Until that's fixed, there are some nice internet cafes/bars in town (the option my other daughter/husband tried and getting computers away from the "retreat" can be a plus).
Everything else was flawless. Great home. Highly recommend it.
Master is on the main level. Two bedrooms upstairs. And the bed in the open area of the loft was also nice for one of our ealy risers (they can use the guest bathroom so everyone has a bathroom) ... so four sleeping areas with four bathrooms if needed.
There is also an outdoor/indoor roofed area right off the living room that is great in summer (shaded with a breeze) or winter (light a fire and snuggle up).
We appreciate this feedback and wish our guest had reached out regarding the internet. We don't typically have internet issues on this property, and we have verified this since receiving this review. Thank you!
It is a comfortable house with nice finishes. Each of the three bedrooms has an attached bathroom with shower. There are TV’s all over the house, including a large Sony with Bose surround sound in the living room. There is a DVD player and cable but no streaming options. The neighborhood was quiet and spread out. The house is close to downtown and the park, but felt fairly secluded. The kitchen was well equipped except for the knives which are falling apart.
My only complaint is that the door code wouldn’t work so I dialed the provided phone number which called an answering service, not owners. They could reset the lock, but didn’t know how it worked. I had to find the manual online to figure out I needed to press star after entering the number.
I will use this house again if in the area.
The cabin was just as pictured. Fantastically furnished in all rooms. The kitchen is nicely stocked with everything you'd need. Our family loved the fireplace on the screened-in porch. The hot tub was sparkling cleaned and maintenance folks came two of the days to check the chemicals and water level. We will definitely be back.
This house was perfect for our trip to RMNP. It was very clean and well stocked. We loved the wildlife and the neighborhood scenery. It was quiet and comfortable. We were extremely satisfied with our stay.
Place was clean, super spacious. Had everything we needed.
The Buckhead was beautifully adorned with all the amenities our two families needed. The screen enclosed covered patio with fireplace was a huge hit with our teenage kids and us. We were able to hear elk bugling and stay out of the snow with a fire to keep us warm. The kitchen was well thought out and a pleasure to cook in. The house is on the way into Rocky Mountain National Park and right up from Safeway for those few items we forgot .
Fireplace & Jacuzzi
