The week-long vacation is often the right amount of time to feel as if you have taken enough time away from it all, as opposed to a three-day weekend getaway or day trip. Of course, we all would prefer the month-long vacation (which can still be accommodated at Mountain Village at Lake Estes), but unfortunately sometimes a week will have to suffice. There is no need to stress too much however, since the log cabin style weekly rentals in Estes Co. we provide along the shores of Lake Estes have all the comforts and amenities of home. Most of our spacious and elegant two-bedroom, two-bathroom properties at Mountain Village can accommodate up to eight guests, a feature which makes them great for families and groups.
Time to Relax
Since all of our weekly rentals in Estes Co. are designed for comfort, convenience and cohesiveness, every space in the home aims to bring people together. For example, when people are seated in the living room, they can converse with people on the loft floor while at the same time speak to folks in the kitchen and dining area. In terms of amenities, our rentals offer a massive hot tub, gas grill, stone fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, complimentary parking and private balconies.
Weeklong Family Trip
Whether you are visiting in winter or summer, our weekly rentals in Estes Co. can accommodate everyone rain or shine. All of our cabins are spacious, however when the maximum capacity is reached, we also provide neighboring ones to make sure those groups larger than eight never have to go too far to remain close to family and friends. Additionally, a cabin rental reserved through the winter holidays or during the summer offers unparalleled adventures as well as memories that will last a lifetime.
Best Day Trips from Estes Park
While there are plenty of activities available in Estes Park to keep you engaged and entertained throughout your stay, the surrounding area is also full of additional activities and attractions. With a full week to spend in Estes Park, you’ll have plenty of time to take a couple of day trips if desired.
In winter months, Eldora makes a great day trip for skiers and snowboarders. This ski area is located approximately one hour’s drive from Estes Park. With shops in Estes Park offering gear rentals, it’s easy to save time and money and hit the slopes right when you arrive in Eldora. With 680 skiable acres and trails that are suitable for both skiers and snowboarders, Eldora offers an abundance of slopes to explore. From double black diamonds that will challenge the experienced skier to private and group lessons for both children and adults, skiers of every ability level can enjoy a snow day at Eldora. In addition, Eldora also offers opportunities for cross country skiing and snow shoeing.
For a wider variety of shopping, dining, and brewery options, head to the chic towns of Boulder or Fort Collins, each just over an hour’s drive away. In additional to the charming downtown areas, both towns also offer additional options for hiking and biking.
Of course, the most popular day trips from Estes Park head into Rocky Mountain National Park, where the miles of trails and options for exploration are nearly limitless. In summer months, trails meander through fields filled with vibrant wildflowers and lead to pristine alpine lakes, perfect for dipping your toes after a difficult climb. During winter months, snow-covered trails weave their way under branches laced with white and transform into snow shoeing paths. With a week to spend in Estes Park, your schedule will be freed up to tackle some of the park’s longer routes, such as the 5.4-mile trail to Ouzel Falls or the challenging 9-mile trek to Chasm Lake.
Estes Park Entertainment
The town of Estes Park, CO was established in 1859, and since then it has been considered somewhat of a refuge away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Denver. Nevertheless, there are many wonderful attractions to visit around Estes Park, and a week is just about the right amount of time to see them all. An excursion to Rocky Mountain National Park should be at the top of any itinerary, while the Peak-to-Peak Scenic Byway should be a close second. The Estes Park Aerial Tramway is another popular attraction in town, and for those who seek a scarier excursion, make a visit to the Stanley Hotel, the same one where the Stephen King movie The Shining was partially filmed.
