To help control the traffic in the Park, Timed Entry Permit Reservations are required to enter Rocky Mountain National Park during the peak season which typically starts the last week in May until the third week in October. You can find out how this works by visiting this link: https://www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/timed-entry-permit-system.htm.
It’s 1 mile from the Rustic Acre to the start of the downtown area. There is public parking in town and it’s a walkable and bikeable route to get downtown. It’s about a 20 minute walk.
It’s a 5 mile drive to the Beaver Meadows entrance and a 6 mile drive to the Fall River Entrance. The Rustic Acre’s location makes it very easy to avoid downtown if there is summer traffic. You can take Highway 7 to Mary’s Lake Road or the Moccasin Circle Drive bypass to avoid traffic.
2 of our 7 units have AC. Units with AC include: Mt. Olympus and Prospect Mountain. Estes Park rarely gets very hot and always cools down in the evening. The average high for July is 77°F and average low is 49°F. In the summer, we rely on the natural Rocky Mountain breeze to keep guests cool. We do provide fans in every unit.
We do not offer laundry facilities on site. Village Laundry is located about 0.5 miles away and they offer laundry service (wash and fold) and coin operated washers and dryers.
Golf balls do fly further at higher altitudes due to the thinner air density. This makes golfing in Estes a fun experience. Does it lower your handicap? NO. Does it help your ego? Yes.
There is not a hot tub on the property. However, all of the rooms have Jacuzzi bath tubs and the Estes Valley Community Center is 0.3 miles away. The Community Center has a large outdoor hot tub (and indoor aquatic center) that is open for public use.
Every unit has a dedicated parking space. There are also 8 additional shared parking spots throughout the property. Contact us if you are towing a boat, trailer or RV.
Unfortunately, we can’t allow cats.
Every unit has a fridge or mini-fridge.
