About the Owner

This craftsman /contemporary one level home was owned and designed by our father, an architect, as a multifamily retreat, with three beautiful and efficient suites. My siblings and I remodeled all the units in 2011 and began sharing our mountain property as a vacation rental.

Our Bunkhouse Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the Bunkhouse (we were running late because of holiday traffic), Brian was right there to welcome us and show us around. We easily found the local grocery, walked downtown and enjoyed a pizza dinner before settling in. We spent our Thanksgiving playing in the snow and elk-spotting at Estes Park with our two young boys and Bassett hound, and found the Bunkhouse to be perfectly situated and very well-stocked. They even had a turkey pan waiting for us! On our last night in town, we drove a short distance the 'back way' to get a good spot for the annual Estes Park Christmas parade. It was so much fun, and while long lines of cars sat at stoplights to get back, we drove back over the hill and were "home" in five minutes. As we got out of the car, our Bunkhouse neighbors were whispering "Look!" There was a small herd of elk right on the lawn! Everything about our stay at the Bunkhouse was magical- from the comfortable beds to the lit Christmas tree outside our front door. We will definitely make the Bunkhouse our home away from home when we visit RMNP and Estes.

It was a loverly home away from home

  • 5 of 5
The unit was lovely and clean with a lot of great touches - like personal artwork. This was a great place to end up at the end of the day of hiking and we were easily able to make it home away from home. Having a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facility available were all very nice. I think it's a stretch that it's a walk to town but we didn't really want to walk to town so that worked for us. The view from the lovely patio makes you feel like you are far from town and we liked that. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at the Bunkhouse. The walk to town is 0.6 miles; if you decide you don't want to walk back... hop on the free town shuttle.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in the smallest unit. At first glance it seems very small, but once we brought our stuff in (and we hike and have lots of stuff) we realized that the size is just right. It's well designed (by the father of the owner) and there is plenty of storage space. Although in this unit the kitchen is small and lacks an oven, there's a gas BBQ on a nice outdoor patio, and we cooked all meals at the condo. The unit was very clean and well maintained.

The location is great, right near a road that bypasses the town, and right near the less busy park entrance. We had something that needed to be fixed, and that was attended to right away. This particular unit is best suited to a couple, but we visited the other 2 units and they're larger and very nice as well. Even though the 3 units are attached, there is plenty of privacy between them, with separate entrances and separate patios. There's also the opportunity to meet your neighbors if so inclined (which we did and that added to the pleasure of our stay).

We spent our time visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, and hiking, and also visited the Estes Park Museum (which is very nice, and free), used the library to check our emails (also free), and visited the Stanley Hotel. I found the town itself to be scenic and a pleasure to walk around. There's a large Safeway nearby that provided all our food needs during our stay.

We would definitely stay here again if we return to Estes Park.

Bunkhouse was Great!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 days at the Bunkhouse (440B Unit #3). It was great. There were just 2 of us but could easily have brought the kids and still had plenty of room. Everything was spotless throughout the place. The appliances were all new and it looked to have been renovated recently and done very well. It had a great covered patio with a grill we used and a nice little deck with table and chairs and an awning that looks out on Old Man Mountain. We had a seperate bedroom from the living/kitchen area so we had tons of room. Was a great location just outside of the main street of Estes Park and on the side of town that made it easy to get to Rocky Mountain National Park. Also, tip for anyone staying there in the future: When you want to get to the grocery store go North on Valley to hwy 34 and take a right. It takes you right to Safeway and bypasses the very slow drive down the main street.

We would definitely stay again in the future. It was certainly not the least expensive place around but we felt it was worth it.

We had a great time and was very comfortable at the Bunkhouse. Hightly recommended!

Relaxing, quiet and clean!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a wedding and really enjoyed ourselves. We stayed in the 1 bedroom unit but this would be a great property for a multi family trip because there is another larger unit connected. We didn't hear the other tenants and it was very peaceful, private and quiet.

The unit was very clean, had nice new bedding, nice clean towels and tasteful decor. The bed was also very comfortable. There's a BBQ, seating outside, kitchen with all the amenities, laundry etc. It's just like living in a small home. The property is about a mile from downtown.

Brian was very nice. It was interesting to learn that the property was built by their father who was an architect who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright and the homes are built to be a part of the nature surrounding them. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.

A Restfull Stay at the Bunkhouse!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and our son just returned to Estes Park to visit after having moved away several months ago. It was suggested to us that we might enjoy staying at the Bunkhouse and it happened to be available at the time so we gave it a shot. We stayed for three nights, I have to say that those three nights and days were absolutely wonderful!!! The condo was well-appointed and had the most exquisite bed!!!! My husband and I slept like babies!!! It was clean and very quiet!!! Our privacy was of the utmost concern with the caretakers of the property, and they made us feel completely at home. We had a GREAT stay! We would recommend it to both families and couples without exception!! Quite Lovely!!!!
