Registration Number 3516

Enjoy sweeping views of Estes Park and the Front Range at this quaint Colorado cottage, a one-bedroom retreat with a private deck and an unbeatable location within walking distance of downtown.

This quaint, single-level cottage sits on a hilltop only one block north of Elkhorn Avenue in downtown Estes Park with a variety of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries.

Make yourself at home after a thrilling day on the trails, and use the free WiFi to look up your next adventure. Curl up with an engrossing novel, set up a board game on the coffee table, or flip through the offerings on the Smart TV with Netflix streaming, a Blu-ray/DVD player, and a selection of DVDs to choose from.

Head outdoors to admire the view on the small tree-lined deck, where you can sip a local microbrew at the patio table and watch the sunset over the Front Range. You'll also catch a glimpse of the Fall River below as you throw a few steaks and vegetable skewers on the gas grill for dinner.

Back inside, the compact kitchen offers all the basic necessities for preparing homemade dinners and tasty trail snacks. You'll have a mini-fridge with a small freezer, a gas stove, an oven, a microwave, a coffee maker, a dining table, and plenty of storage space for groceries and produce from the summer farmers market in Bond Park half a mile east.

With one bedroom and one full bathroom, this Estes Park cottage will accommodate two guests. Sleep soundly in the master bedroom, which features a double bed and sliding doors that open onto the deck.

Thanks to its wonderful location just hree miles east of the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center in Rocky Mountain National Park and one mile from the Stanley Hotel, this home offers an unrivaled blend of convenience and natural scenery. Begin each morning with a hot treat from the Donut Haus and a latte from Coffee on the Rocks, and spend the day perusing Estes Park's main drag. Park your car at Bear Lake 14 miles south and take an unforgettable hike to Nymph and Dream Lakes. You can also make the steady ascent of Deer Mountain or take a drive to Grand Lake on the Trail Ridge Road - one of the most iconic 48-mile stretches in the entire United States.

Come and find your home away from home in the Front Range - book this Estes Park cottage today!

We appreciated how clean this adorable little cabin was!

Close to shops and restaurants.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time here while staying in Estes, this place worked perfectly. The unit is located on a very quiet street/drive and is so close to everything. Aside from driving into RMNP, we walked everywhere in town. We had the windows open the entire time we were there, the light breeze on the top of the hill was wonderful. The house had everything we needed, furnishings were adorable and everything was so clean. They even had paper towels, garbage and dish soap among everything needed to cook a dinner in the kitchen. The one recommendation I have, some extra towels. We were there from Saturday to Weds and only got 1 towel each, rough when you don't have a wash and a dryer. Other than that, perfect getaway rental for a couple.

This quaint little cabin is a great place to stay when visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. It is small, but it has everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. It is also walking distance to the prime downtown areas.

This small house is conveniently located one block from the west end of the main street in Estes Park. We walked to shops and restaurants every day.

Well appointed,nicely updated and centrally located to town. Down side no outside trash receptacle and not big enough frig. for a week. No tv reception i like to watch the news.

This small cottage is secluded yet near downtown and very close to a Rocky Mountain National Park entrance. It's small but has all the kitchen equipment and appliances to cook meals.

Very clean, well kept place! Very secluded and private! In walking distance to almost everything. Everything worked, had no issues with TV or Wi-Fi. We would definitely come back! :)

My wife and I found the location ideal with a short walk to town. We enjoyed seeing deer in the parking area and a raccoon checking things out one night. The most difficult thing we found was the pot hole at the end of the steep driveway.

The cottage is new and lovely inside. It would be so welcoming on the outside with a potted plant or two. Inside we found everything we needed for a romantic get-away. Even though it is quite small, it seemed bigger by the utilization of every nook and cranny. The deck was a great plus (although it rained during most of our stay and the paint started to peel) We loved the quiet seclusion of the place and then when we wanted to be more social and active, we only had a five minute walk to of both worlds!

We enjoyed our stay! Great place for couple and toddler. We were particularly appreciative of the children's amenities-toys, dinnerware, etc. The listing looked bigger online than in reality, but it worked for our small group. The space had been updated recently and was in nice shape inside the rental.

This home is so quaint and was the perfect size for our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. Very convenient location to explore Estes Park and more!
Elizabeth K. Aug 2017
I stayed at this property for 2 nights while visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was located on a hill (overlooking the mountains), and very near to downtown Estes Park (5 min walk). The cottage was fully outfitted with cooking gear, bath supplies and a bunch of fun DVDs. This would be my first choice if visiting RMNP again!

Walking distance to restaurants and local shuttles! Clean, good mattress, a great weekend getaway!

My daughter and I spent a few nights here and we were delighted with the location and decor. It sits above Estes Park so you have views of the brook below along with the mountains surrounding the park. There is a wonderful deck to have coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night and you can take a 3-5 minute walk into town to shop, eat or explore a fabulous little Farmer's Market to buy croissants, pain au chocolate, fruit, etc. The cottage is perfectly appointed with Keurig coffee choices and the furniture, bedding and household items are new and in perfect condition. Loved every second of our stay and would stay here again!

Very nice for two as a honeymoon or vacation would like to take our kids there but will need a bigger cottage
