Outside, the large deck offers plenty of seating to chill and relax, a picnic table and benches,a round rod iron table with four chairs, a gas grill, and your very own private hot tub. From here you can view the lake, the Town of Estes Park and Prospect Mountain. And that's not it! This charming mountain getaway allows dogs, so don't hesitate to bring the family dog with you.

What's nearby:
Sitting at 7,522 feet above sea level, this town is a favorite Colorado getaway due to its proximity to the Rocky Mountain National Park (you'll be only six and a half miles away), landmarks such as the historic Stanley Hotel, and a variety of galleries and family-friendly museums that are well worth a visit. Less than one mile away is the Estes Park 18-Hole Golf Course and if you or anyone in your group are golf enthusiasts, you'll be thrilled to know that this house offers two sets of basic golf clubs available for renters to use. This includes two bags and golf balls all located in the garage. If you're more of an outdoor person, the Lake Estes Marina is a short three-mile drive where you can find boat rentals, including kayaks and canoes and fishing, paddle, and pontoon boats. It's the perfect place to visit with your family, especially if during summer.

Plenty of toys and beds for the kids! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for Thanksgiving and we loved the hot tub. We had a wonderful time!
Kim G. Nov 2022
Home was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay in Estes Park! We would love to rebook in the future. Thank you!

The home is spacious and cozy at the same time. Clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub.

This dog friendly home was conveniently located to Rocky Mountain National Park. Elk and deer strolled through the yard. Home was well stocked and Vacasa was customer friendly.

Great location. Nicely-sized living room and den gave us two good spaces (6 adults) to gather either to chat or play cards. The kitchen is well equipped, but we felt the need to wash pots and pans before use. No biggie, just saying. The house itself was very clean with comfortable furniture. A bit dated and too much ‘stuff’, around which to navigate. Didn’t understand the ‘no shoes in house’ request. Enjoyed the outdoor space and the hot tub. A mule deer and her fawn were daily visitors which we really enjoyed and view from back porch was lovely. Overall, a good experience.

We were very satisfied with our stay at this property. Not only was the house clean and well-stocked, it is in a great location for sitting out on the porch and taking in the mountain view. We saw deer almost every morning right outside the house. There was more than enough room for our family to spread out and relax. I would definitely recommend this property, and would rent again if returning to Estes Park.

Well-maintained home only a few minutes drive from groceries, downtown Estes, and the National Park entrance.
DeAnna S. Jul 2022
We had a great time here. There was plenty of room, the house is super convenient to Estes Park and RMNP, and we could even see 4th of July fireworks from the back deck.

The house is also super well stocked. All the dishes and cookware you could need, fans, extra blankets. We played ping pong when it rained. And we saw elk, deer, rabbits, and chipmunks every day. Great!

This home is beautifully decorated and has a very homey feel to it. It's situated perfectly, tucked in a quiet neighborhood. My friend and I enjoyed sitting in the jacuzzi every night, just soaking in the star filled sky, and along with the sounds of nature. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation to Estes Park!

If I won the lottery, this would be my mountain dream home. Moving away from Colorado and returning to have quality time with family was important and we could not have asked for a more comfortable, cozy, warm, welcoming home than Elk Ridge Retreat. It checked every box and then some! The attention to detail and special amenities were not overlooked. The ping pong table (which was a forgotten favorite pastime) was a family favorite. It is decorated perfectly, and the layout of the house is impeccable! It is located in a quiet neighborhood away from town but it's close enough that everything is still convenient. I enjoyed an early morning walk through the neighborhood waving to neighbors. This will be our go-to house from now on. And if I ever win the lottery-I will be calling with an offer.

The house is nice and equipped with everything you need for a lovely stay. Everything was very well thought out to make our time spent in the home cozy and homey. Only downfall was the Hot Tub. It's kinda old and worn. Not all the jets work, rubber back rests are missing, and the cover was almost impossible to take on and off and when you do slide it off, it sticks up, blocking the view and prevents you from sitting comfortably on that side. Other than the Hot Tub falling short, everything else about the home was nice, a bit outdated, but nice.
Manager response:
Hi, Linda! We're glad you enjoyed your rental and sincerely apologize for the disappointment you had with the hot tub. We've received quotes for repairs and will be discussing them with the homeowner. Thank you!
Jennifer S. May 2022
The layout of the house was fabulous for everyone to have their own space. Loved the big dining room and the well-stocked kitchen. Ping-pong was a lot of fun and the hot tub was great.
Rachel E. Apr 2022
The view was spectacular from the hot tub. The house had EVERYTHING we needed and more. Spacious, clean and the neighborhood is filled with beautiful nature and wildlife!
Alicia C. Apr 2022
This was a perfect home for the California part of the family to spend time with kids and grandkids who love in Colorado. We loved the house and it was so much fun to have deer in the front yard daily. The kitchen as well-stocked for the eight of us and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more.
Anthony B. Apr 2022
Great mountain neighborhood! Beautiful views and calm surroundings. Easy to get places. Ping Pong in the garage was fun!! Hot tub always wonderful!
Jessica T. Feb 2022
The house was spacious and beautiful. We had everything we needed (and more! the toys and games for the kids were amazing). The hot tub was super relaxing. Check in and check out were incredibly easy. A wonderful experience!
Diane E. Nov 2021
Easy access and close to everything including wildlife. We saw turkeys and elk in the neighborhood. The main area is very welcoming, spacious, open and filled with natural light. Plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub and ping pong table in the garage. There were so many thoughtful touches to make us feel comfortable; extra bedding and towels, fans and throws, My grandkids loved the toy filled bunk room! It was a great place for us to spend quality family time together. Thanks for sharing your home.
Darcy B. Nov 2021
We loved the property, neighbors were nice. The home has everything, the pictures are accurate. The beds are probably original with the home. Our only complaint is old worn out beds and the home was very warm despite turning the thermostat down, the house was 80+ degrees our entire stay.
Manager response:
Darcy, thank you for your review. We regret that the bed was not suitable for your party and appreciate this feedback as an area to improve upon in the future. We hope to host you again soon!
Chuck F. Nov 2021
Fully furnished home. Felt like being at home. Location was fabulous. Birthday girl was very highly impressed as to all the home offered. Updated appliances all around. Comfortable living conditions. Hot tub was very appreciated while snowing. Highly recommended rental.
Dona E. Oct 2021
Our family of 3 generations came for a family wedding at the Stanley. This home was just right for us.. the location made getting to everything. So easy. Grandkids loved the hot tub and all the toys in the bunk room. Had everything we needed and was very clean . We liked sitting around the big table having meals and playing board games provided. Would highly recommend and we would definitely stay again !
Jill W. Aug 2021
perfect setting and house for reunion of extended family attending family wedding. Quiet neighborhood, ping pong table, hot tub, Lots of board games and movies for entertaining all ages, spacious living room for sitting and chatting. Hope to make this an annual reunion destination.
Katie S. Jul 2021
This house exceeded our expectations. It was incredibly clean and had all the touches of home with a beautiful outdoor deck area and beautiful views. We were able to watch the Elk walk by the yard one morning after we were initially greeted by a gorgeous deer or two. We had plenty of space and enjoyed cooking dinner and breakfast together and eating at the large dining table as a family. It was a very short drive to downtown and we were able to explore the area even during our short stay. We thank our hosts and would consider ourselves very lucky to be able to stay again!
Kim L. Jul 2021
This home was perfect for our family of seven. The home was fully stocked with everything we needed for meals in, hiking, games and washer and dryer. We appreciated the high chair and pack-n-play for our grandson and all the toys. We loved the hot tub especially after a day of hiking. It’s close to the Park and near town but we still felt we were in a mountain retreat. The only minor inconvenience was the master bath shower head which was broken and duct taped toward the wall. We also saw deer, chipmunks and hummingbirds. We would definitely book this again . Thank you for a wonderful vacation home!
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments regarding the showerhead along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!
Linnea B. May 2021
The house is great for kids and is well stocked with items. It has beautiful scenery all around. We enjoyed the fireplace and the living space.
Beth R. May 2021
Beautiful home, pictures did not do it justice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. A couple cons were that we had to buy dish soap, a sponge as there was not any, and dishwasher detergent because they only left one pod. There was also some dog poop on the deck. Otherwise everything was great and we would rent this home again.
Nikki A. Apr 2021
Loved this place. In a good area, saw lots if wildlife outside the windows. It was big, clean and loved the decor.
