Live the life of leisure in our brand new second floor loft, situated in a fun neighborhood just blocks from downtown. This apartment was specifically built for vacationing guests in mind, and construction finished in mid-2020.

+ Walk to 2 awesome breweries
+ Best tacos in town are 1 block away
+ Downtown is 3 blocks away

Perfect for couples!

The space
Real quick -- some house rules:

No early check in or late checkouts. Check in is 4pm or later; check out is 10am or earlier. No smoking inside or outside; no fire pits; no parties; no pets. 1 car & 4 guests max. Guests must do dishes at checkout (we have negotiated a lower cleaning fee based on this). Accurate guest count is mandatory and the platform will not otherwise generate a correct price for your date. We live in the main house, but the studio is a private and separate space. Also no cable -- bring your own streaming accounts for the smart TV.

Onward!

Thanks for checking out our brand new loft, which my husband and I designed ourselves. Construction just finished in mid-2020, so it's sparkly clean and in awesome shape. It's a perfect spot for couples who are excited to explore the National Park or the downtown district, and our immediate neighborhood has everything you need for a fun visit.

Within blocks of our home are the best street tacos in town, a great Thai restaurant, and our two favorite breweries. You can also walk a block and a half to Lake Estes to fish or just hang out. The convenience can't be beat.

When we decided to add on to our home, we wanted to create an inviting space that makes you feel like you're high up in the air. We are avid rock climbers, after all! The massive second-floor picture windows offer commanding views over our neighborhood to the mountains of Lumpy Ridge and the twinkly lights of the Stanley Hotel.

The space features an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, so it feels big for its 600-ish square feet. The kitchen/dining/living area encourages socialization and it's got a funky, modern vibe. At the same time, the cozy bedroom in the rear of the building is quiet as can be.

While our neighborhood is residential, it's frequently overrun with elk, deer and other wildlife that venture over after drinking from Lake Estes, about a block away. Animal sightings are common, so be ready.

All access is plowed and flat, so, you will be fine year round with whatever car you choose. We do recommend AWD however.

We are new hosts, but we are happy to have our good friend of 10 years managing our home. Nathan and his house manager Nancy have hosted 8000+ guests since 2016 and we know you will be in great hands. Their past guests have raved about their prompt replies, attention to detail, and ability to make you feel totally at home.

***** IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES *****

This is a private guest suite in an accessory unit above our garage. It's attached to our home, and we live there year round. We give our guests privacy but you may see us coming and going.

We live in a residential neighborhood; if you are looking for isolation in the woods, this isn't your best bet. For that you'll need to search 10 miles or more out of Estes Park.

The fully stocked kitchenette has a 2 burner cooktop but no stove.

Like nearly all homes in Estes, there is no a/c. Mountain breezes and fans cool things fast.

Last, check in is 4PM and check out is 10AM. We can't accommodate early check ins and late check outs due to my cleaners' schedule and the extra time needed for coronavirus precautions.

*****

SLEEPING - Our home offers 1 bedroom with a super comfortable queen bed and huge closet, plus a pull-out sofa bed in the living room that's larger than a full and ever so slightly smaller than a queen.

LIVING & ENTERTAINMENT - There's a 4K smart television with Roku. Log into your favorite streaming service: Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sling, Hulu, etc.

WiFi - Our loft employs a speedy fiber-based WiFi network.

COOKING - The kitchenette has everything you need to cook: a two burner stove, microwave, fridge and freezer, and assortment of pots and pans, cooking utensils, glasses, cutlery and plates. Note that there is no oven!!

Guest access
Guests have access to 1 parking spot in our driveway (far left side of the garage) plus our loft apartment. Guests do not have access to our backyard, garage or home. Our loft includes 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and an open kitchen/dining/living area.

Other things to note
WE LIVE HERE

Note that we live in the home. You will have access to a guest suite with no interior shared spaces/overlap. It's totally private.

NOISE

Events, loud music and noises, and parties are strictly prohibited. Please be respectful of your noise level so I can maintain good relationships with my neighbors.

NONPAYING GUESTS

Insurance requires that nonpaying and non-registered guests are not allowed on property. There is an exterior security camera to deter parties and nonpaying guests.

ADDITIONAL GUEST FEE

There is an additional charge per person for your stay after the first two guests. The platform will automatically calculate the total when you input your dates and guest count.

AIR CONDITIONER

Estes has a mild mountain climate in the summers but from time to time it can get hot. Like nearly every other home in town, there’s no A/C. The cool evening breeze plus fans will cool the home down quickly.

BEARS

Do NOT leave food in your car! Bears frequent this area and can break in!

Location

Estes Park, Colorado, United States

Our neighborhood is fun and convenient. Situated in a residential zone, our home is a block and a half from Lake Estes. It's also just blocks from our two favorite breweries (Avant Garde Aleworks and Lumpy Ridge Brewing), both with great outdoor seating. The best street tacos in town are at either La Cocina de Mama or an incredible Mexican grocery store, both about a block away. You can also walk over to the fairgrounds for Estes' biggest events, to our favorite Thai restaurant, to a liquor store, laundry mat, and other restaurants and bars. Downtown is close by too.
