Description: Rocky Mountain Rush. Where Family and Adventure Come together!
Welcome to the ultimate Vacation. All Activities except boating are here on the 63 acre property! A Destination location getaway with your on-site entertainment and relaxation carefully thought out. Don't just rent a house when you can find a unique getaway designed with multiple on site activities available to choose from on 63 acres. For total privacy virtually no houses or neighbors can be seen from the cabin!
Estes Park is just seven miles north of the house (a 8 min drive to down town Estes). The house is located off of Highway 7 in the Tahossa Valley just above Lily Lake.
About the House:
Unique, famous and comfortable, mountain log sided home with vaulted ceilings. Featured on Nightline as it was custom designed and built by a former President of the Sierra Club. Passive Solar with a wall of Southern facing windows and a 250 ton rock bed that the house is built upon. We have taken this famous home and completely remodeled it throughout two years go. We even have brand new carpet and new floors the end of Aug 2011. The house now has a new lodge theme throughout with sheepskin rugs, Leather recliner and Leather couch (remodeled in 2009). Our Cabin has 4 Bedrooms all with new bedding mattresses with added topper on each bed for extra comfort and a new log
style king bed.
Room(1) The Bear Room- Small Master Bedroom with King bed with under bed storage and new memory foam topper on top of the mattress and built in book case. (Bathroom attached)
Room(2) The Elk Room- 12X17 Room with King bed, natural log bed and sofa sleeper with views of Twin Sisters Mountain and the valley towards Lily Lake. With a queen size sleeper sofa in the room as well.
Room(3) Queen Upper Bunk with built in bookcase, built in desk and a dresser. This room has an option to convert the desk to a queen bed as well. This would turn the room into a double queen bunk bed room) (we have two toppers to make the extra bed amazing)
Room(4) Queen bed with under bed storage and desk. (This is a bed that can be converted to a single to make enough room for our portable crib that is available, or a dog crate in addition to the bed in the room).
Two additional queen sleepers in main room. #1 is a leather sofa sleeper, #2 is a teak slide out sleeper. Both of these have new memory foam toppers for extra comfort.
The main room has a massive wall of windows on the south side of the home with insulated wood shutters throughout. We have a new 2008 46" Flat screen HD 1080P TV with Phillips Sono Wave Surround Sound with up scaling and a large Video Library. We have approximately 180 movies (DVDs and VHS), we now have Direct TV and a computer with the internet and MS Office. The Kitchen is large and fully equipped with all new kitchen appliances including a dishwasher, easy to use stove, new refrigerator with ice and water in the door. It does include all the dishes, pots, pans, utensils and most anything you will need. In the mud room we have two full size Maytag washers and two dryers. The house has newer Carpet (2008) and Paint throughout. A new Dyson Vacuum cleaner for those that love to clean:) and an Electric Fireplace with remote control for flame and or heat. If you like to read we have Hundreds of books on the bookshelves in each room. We even have new phones with unlimited long distance within US.
Amazing Sundance Hot Tub with 40 jets, rated as one of the best massage therapy spas available.
We even have some fluffy Robes and Slippers.
Off the deck next to the hot tub you will have Incredible Views of Twin Sisters Mountain.
We have a Stainless Steel Outdoor GasGrill.
We even built a large Outdoor Rock Fire Pit with Adirondack chairs and loads of chopped firewood that is located just behind the house that overlooks Estes Valley and Lily Lake. This Fire pit brings the family together while you enjoy hot dogs or smore's with your family.
If you like to take nature walks you can take a hike on the property's sixty-three acres to the top of the hill to see amazing views of Estes and Lily Lake that takes your breath away. If you want we also have a path through our property that you can take to Lily lake or the National forest (it goes all the way to YMCA camp) our property abuts Rocky Mountain National Park..
For activities included that we have available (such as a boat, fishing poles, kids electric buggies etc.) see the activities section for features not available anywhere else!
This mountain retreat offers privacy, great natural beauty and an amazing experience. I have trouble leaving every time I come to the property. You will find the city will leave you within a short time of arriving. Welcome!
