We hope to exceed your expectations of what a Vacation home can be!

Our home has the best entertaining yard and cutest gazebo in Estes! There are 5 TVs in the home, including one in the bar. These are new HD LED TVs and the smallest is 50”! The home has welcomed guests from all over the world for nearly 100 years! It is a historic, newly restored home, on one of the first homesteads, which extends into the fenced yard with amenities beyond your imagination. It is often described as a place straight out of a fairy tale. This home was re-imaged as the ideal place for couples or families. During the re-imagination, our focus was to create an environment, inside and outside the home, where new shared memories are created. It has three bedrooms and one and one half bathrooms. With a custom Gazebo with fireplace and Hot Tub, you can relax after a long hike. The Master Bedroom is large and luxurious. It has a queen size log bed, fireplace, sitting area, library, large TV with cable, internet and Roku, walk-in closet, and private patio with table and chairs. The two additional bedrooms, which are legal bedrooms, are relatively small, as most bedrooms were 80 years ago, but have full size beds and small walk-in closets. These bedrooms are usually perfect for children but can be relatively small for adult couples. Nevertheless, we have had many couples stay in these smaller bedroom without issue. These bedrooms also have 50” TVs, internet and cable. The living, dinning and kitchen areas are based on an open concept giving you plenty of room to gather as a family or group. The home is one level, is handicap friendly with a ramp, has a fenced yard, a spectacular outdoor entertainment area which includes an Tiki bar, hot tub in a custom gazebo with fireplace, horse shoes and a 14 person picnic table within a fenced yard that actually has grass.

LUXURY - In 2014 and 2015, the home was completely restored with all the modern conveniences of a premium property and many unexpected creature comforts. These extend outside to an entertaining sanctuary with spectacular views.

VALUE - The home is historic, but new to the general public and priced below similarly situated and furnished properties. We provide many of the consumables and convenience items you would normally have to buy.

CONVENIENCE - The home backs directly up to forest, some of which is private and some is part of the Rocky Mountain National Park allowing you to hike or snow shoe right out the door yet it is within walking distance (1 mile) to restaurants, groceries, bars and shopping. The bus stop to town and the RMNP is only 1/2 mile from the Overlook.

Outside there are numerous places to enjoy the view. There is a 14 person custom picnic table, a custom gazebo with fireplace, table and chairs on the hill overlooking the valley, and a private deck with table and chairs off the Master Bedroom. There is a custom fire pit where you can sit, enjoy s'mores, view the stars and overlook the valley. There is even an outdoor bar (summers only) with 60 inch TV that can be watched from nearly any position in the yard. There are also several gliders and chairs on the wrap around deck. There is a horseshoe pit in the fenced yard and a delightful swing suspended between two pines with a fantastic view.

The Master Bedroom has a sitting area, fireplace, and library. There are TVs in all the bedrooms. All three bedrooms have walk-in closets. There is free WiFi and cable TV for your enjoyment. There is a DVD player in the Living Room and a library of DVDs, books and games.

To encourage and simplify caring for our planet, we have a recycle center and compost bin to minimize waste. We collect rain water for our garden. We have super insulated the home to reduce our carbon footprint by over 75% compared to similar properties.

For your safety, we have fire and carbon monoxide detectors in all bedrooms, multiple fire extinguishers, security cameras and flood lights, fenced yard, and fortified doors with deadbolts. We have emergency lights throughout the property and backup power.

We are a licensed vacation rental. Beware of unlicensed vacation rentals operating in the area. A recent survey suggests over 70% of the vacation rentals operating the Estes area are illegal. Legal vacation rentals in the Estes area must meet local building codes, safety requirements, parking requirements, pay taxes and provide commercial insurance. Illegal unlicensed vacation rentals can be shut down anytime, even during your vacation. They usually don't have commercial insurance, so you won't be protected against accidents or catastrophes. They often don't meet local code and can be unsafe for you and your family. Always ask for the license number for any vacation rental you are considering using for your vacation.

VALUE - Save Money and Time

The Overlook is new to the market in 2015. To entice you to choose it for your future vacation, we have priced it below similarly situated and furnished properties. We have nothing but new Energy Star appliances and electronics, super insulated the structure, and installed extremely efficient heating. This allows us to keep our costs down and pass the savings along to you in the form of lower rental rates. We provide complementary coffee, tea, creamer, spices, paper products, shampoo, soap, firewood (limited) and other convenience items. We even have a herb garden (seasonal) with fresh mint for your mint juleps! We challenge you to compare prices and features. We believe once you visit, you will become a frequent returning guest. We have a pac-n-play, child's cot, stroller and high chair available upon request saving you the inconvenience of travelling with these space hogs. We have complementary coolers, travel thermos, shopping bags, freezer bags, etc. for your use during your stay.

CONVENIENCE - Enjoy your stay, not sitting in a car

Once you arrive at the Overlook, you might decide not to get back in your car. Many of our guest do! The home provides a great spot to walk into the RMNP, sit and watch the wildlife, or walk to nearby restaurants and shopping.

There is nothing behind the home except forest. In front of the home is a birds eye view of the valley below. This is the perfect spot for viewing the local wildlife.

The location is between downtown Estes Park and the YMCA of the Rockies. It is right next to the original park entrance. This convenient location allows you to walk directly into the Rocky Mountain National Park, to restaurants, grocery store, shopping and entertainment.

The bus stop for the downtown shopping shuttle and the RMNP shuttle is only a 1/2 mile walk. These shuttles are seasonal and the schedule should be researched before you arrive. However, the nearest restaurant is less than a mile away. Within a mile you can walk to shopping, groceries, restaurants and entertainment.

EXPECTATIONS - Full Disclosure of Important Quirks and Considerations

The property is beautiful and accommodating but due to its age, it dates back to 1911, there are some quirky characteristics we want you to know. It retains the original historic water tank for the farmhouse and surrounding buildings. This water tower is no longer functional. In addition, it was built before there were cars and therefore has limited parking. The parking is directly in front of the home on a private road. We have a well lit parking area for one car. Additional cars must park along the road directly in front of the Overlook. We own the road. However, we must leave room for cars to reach the two cabins next to the Overlook on a dead end road. This is a very well lit and safe place for parking. It also has only 1-1/2 baths. The main bath is gorgeous with a fantastic view. However, it has a combination shower and soaking tub. The shower is a rainfall shower directly out of the ceiling. It is new and luxurious tub with a fantastic view. However, this can be a limiting factor for individuals that have trouble stepping into a tub. However, there is tub seating available and plenty of grab bars. The home is built on the east side of Eagle Cliff Mountain. The property has a level fenced yard but the rest of the property is on a hill. Once you reach the property, there is a wheel chair ramp or you can take a short flight of stairs. The home is all on one level with easy wheel chair access to the deck and yard.
