This home was absolutely perfect for our week long family vacation! There were 16 of us, 4 generations, ages 3-66, and there was more than enough room for everyone to spread out. We especially loved that the dining room table had room for us all to eat together! Everything in the house was top quality, and the views were even better than the pictures. The short drive to Estes Park provided additional scenery to enjoy. Everyone had a wonderful time and we're already talking about when we can go back again.
This home is indeed stunning! Usually when you view pictures in brochures or online, they are more flattering than when seen in person. Have to say that this place is every bit as gorgeous and realistic as the pictures depict! Very high quality construction, furnishings, and appointments. It could not have been a more perfect place for our family of 15 to gather. The house is gorgeous and SOOO spacious with its many bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is very large, a cook's dream, and so well appointed -- we cooked every evening and never had to "want" for any utensil, bowl, pan, etc. Even the utensils all matched! LOVED how everything was labeled -- made finding things and returning them to the proper place easy! The two large decks were awesome, and the hot tub was so nice to relax in after a day of hiking. The view and surroundings were absolutely gorgeous. The foosball table was a big hit with the children! The owner was very responsive, quickly responded to any question, and was very friendly and accommodating. We could find nothing wrong with this home except that it wasn't ours!! Would give it 10 stars if I could!!
This home is exactly how it is advertised through VRBO. Julie is very responsive and helpful! A note of caution if you are staying in the winter months the driveway does require four wheel drive when there is snow. The view cannot be beat! We had a lovely time..... I loved that my entire family could be under one roof again! No need to look any further, I promise you this is the one!
Our family of 19 loved the house--that's why we came back to it a second time! We had plenty of space for everyone, were able to seat everyone together for meals at the gigantic dining table, had a great time using the hot tub and hiking around the beautiful property, and had fun sledding down the driveway with the grandkids. Convenient to Estes Park and with beautiful views, the house was perfect for our family Christmas. Julie took good care of us.
Spent an incredible Thanksgiving week in Estes Park. As beautiful as Rocky Mountain park and the surrounding towns are, the highlight of the trip was this beautiful home. Its well stocked (including spices), it has 2 garages, large bedrooms, 2 sets of washer/dryers, etc.. However, what takes your breath away are the incredible views and all the large windows to enjoy those views. The property itself is beautiful and you can spend hours just hiking around the house. Julie did tell us if it snowed, a 4 wheel drive vehicle would be best to use as it's a mountain home and you have to drive uphill. Julie does have a professional snow plow come out to clear the path. However, I would agree that in the snow, someone in the group should have a 4 wheel drive. To recap, if you want lifelong memories, rent this home. I guarantee you'll be happy that you did.
Julie's house was absolutely perfect for our small wedding outside of Estes Park. The setting at the top of the mountain provided the best backdrop we could have asked for. The house was very clean on arrival and had very comfortable beds. We very comfortably slept 12 people in the house and had more than enough room to spread out. I appreciated Julie's communication throughout the whole process - she didn't mind all the small questions I had and was always responsive within hours, even minutes. I highly recommend this house for family vacations, company retreats, and small weddings. Thank you so much for providing such a great experience for my family this past weekend!
Fantastic home! We recently stayed at Julie's place in Estes Park for our wedding. Our immediate family all stayed in the home (10 people). We also used the home for both our welcome dinner and goodbye brunch. The house is beautiful and has plenty of space for large groups. I highly recommend it for anyone planning to host a wedding, anniversary, or extended family getaway. The owner Julie was very easy to work with and they provided great info about the property in advance and during our stay.
The house was everything we had hoped it would be and more. The views were amazing, we were there just in time for the lunar eclipse! I real appreciated the owners calling the night we arrived to check in on us and see if we had any problems or questions. We didn" have any questions because everything had been anticipated and written in the manuel(it was wonderful). Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family
We were so blessed to find Narrow Trail Ranch for our Family Gathering! The home was wonderful in every way. What a joy it was to fill that awesome dining room table for memorable family dinners! Be sure to checkout the virtual tour: https://www.vpix.net/index.php?tour=67520. We've stayed in many vacation rentals, and I can honestly say that owners Julie and Dean were most responsive, caring, and friendly we have ever experienced. They accommodated us in every way. More things we loved: > Simply enjoying the views and sunlight in the awesome great room > How nice to have a separate ice machine machine - great ice too! > Star-gazing from the Hot Tub, shooting stars galore! > Extra refrigerator in the garage > Laundry room was a great staging area for loading up backpacks for our RMNP adventures > Kitchen great to prepare big dinners Things to know: > There is Zero cell service at the house. Make sure all in your party have the home land-line number. We had many nice coordination calls from our group when they had cell service in town. eMails also a good way for communicating to/from the house wifi. > The lower north guest room does have a twin bed inside the walk in closet. You don't want to be claustrophobic though. If you need a beautiful large, new, well-appointed mountain home near Rocky Mountain National Park .... You just found it!!
Our family loved this beautiful home for our family reunion! Family members came from Oregon, California, Utah, Illinois and Texas. We especially loved the gorgeous views, and were able to get beautiful family photos on the rocks surrounding the home. Our grandkids especially loved the hot tub! We had tons of fun visiting RMNP and Estes Park and then could return to this spacious home for dinners, after which we enjoyed playing games around the huge dining room table or watching movies in the great room. We would love to return again!
What a beautiful home this was for our 50th wedding celebration/family reunion. Four families from Indiana, Nebraska and Arkansas spent a week here having beautiful views of the mountains out of the windows or from the decks attached to the house. The 5000+ square feet gave plenty of room for us to play games or sing with our karaoke machine while having enough bedrooms for everyone to have the privacy they wanted. The hot tub was enjoyed by all but especially our grandchildren. The proximity to hiking trails and Trail Ridge Road was a plus as was the presence of the rodeo that week, a first for many of us. This home was very well-stocked in both the kitchen and the bathrooms and provided for your every need. We loved our stay here and recommend it to anyone traveling to Estes Park. The owners were wonderful to deal with and provided great suggestions for places to eat. We loved our celebration home and would gladly return again.
We found this home to be perfect for our family vacation celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Very private, beautiful views, very clean. We had 4 families, 18 people, ages from 5 months to 68 years. There was plenty of room for all of us. Easy access to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Enjoyed the hot tub, laundry facilities, grill, well supplied kitchen and hiking and wildlife opportunities. We took turns cooking and cleaning up the kitchen and it all worked out great. So glad we found Narrow Trail. It was perfect.
This stunning home was perfect for our family vacation. It was private, well-stocked, clean, and comfortable. Access to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park from this location was easy. The views were gorgeous and we saw plenty of wildlife. Our group consisted of 3 families, including 2 babies and 2 toddlers. We had plenty of room for playtime and privacy for nap time too. It was wonderful to have laundry facilities as well. We ate in-house for most meals and appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and outside grill. Plenty of spices and oils were provided. The outdoor hot tub was a big hit. Communication with the owners was excellent - quick response, thorough, and courteous. We all agreed that we would easily stay here again. You won't be disappointed!!
This property is amazing! Incredibly beautiful and very inviting. We held a small wedding at the house and it was perfect. The owners Dean and Julie are very easy to work with. They are super friendly and try hard to make it a wonderful experience, and they deliver just that! I could not imagine a better place to stay! I highly recommend.
This property was perfect for our team of seven to use for a week-long leadership meeting. We each had a private bedroom and bath. The amenities are far better than most upper-end hotels, but the real advantage is the comfort of this spectacular home and the amazing mountain views! The hosts are extremely accommodating in every respect, from the pre-arrival planning document to the detailed on-premise packet for the house and surrounding area. This is a first-class residence in every respect and the owners go out-of-their way to ensure a memorable, relaxing stay!
Amazing property! We were in Colorado for our sons wedding. We rented this amazing home to not only house our family and the groomsmen, but to also hoast the rehearsal dinner/party. Having not seen the house we were crossing our fingers it was as advertised. It was and more!! What a beautiful setting! Everyone had the same comment walking in the front door, "WOW!!!" Julie had told us there would be no issue absorbing 50 people for the rehersal dinner and that there were plenty of tables and seating for all. It was a fantastic party and there was plenty of room. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. It allowed us to relax and enjoy the wedding and the Rockies. I would love to return.
Julie and Dean, Thanks allowing our families to come together to enjoy a special time and place! We have given your property a 5 star rating for the following key items. 1. Location, Location, Location easy access to the Estes Park, Lyons and Pinewood Springs area. We were amazed and how convenient and easy access. 2. Ease of communication and booking! Julie and Dean went out of their way to make it easy and so pleasant to book this property. 3. Best stocked VRBO rental we have stayed at. We have used many VRBO rentals over the years and there was not a thing that we could think of that was not there and easy to find. 4. Private Mountain Hideaway while the location is easy to access when you are at the property there are no neighbors and no noise to bar you from enjoying the Colorado Rocky Mountains. 5. Larger and Nicer than our expectations. The photos are wonderful we just were surprised at how great the home is taken care of and the furnishings were great!
I cannot say enough nice things about this home. They owners Julie and Dean thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and convenient and most of all enjoyable. The house is gorgeous and gave us the perfect space to gather with our families. Everyone could be in one place and you never felt crowded. It is a great getaway for any reason and any time of the year. Stay as long as you can here - it more than worth it. I hope we have a chance to come back. Thank you Julie and Dean for sharing this wonderful home with us and for all your kindness.
We loved staying in this beautiful, spacious home. It accommodated all 26 of us comfortably. One of our grandsons asked if we could just stay there forever. Unlike other vacation homes we have rented this one had very accurate information. During the process of deciding to rent and even after setting a date, the owners were quick to respond to any questions we had. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked. The surroundings absolutely breathtaking. Wildlife was abundant even to having some critter at our front door in the middle of the night making noises that scared the nearby sleepers. Family pictures taken in areas around the house came out great. Not only would we recommend this home to others, we have friends who are looking at it and we, personally, are planning a return trip. To Dean and Julie: Thanks so much!
Our family gathered in this beautiful home to celebrate my Mother's 90th birthday. The photos of the property are fantastic, but, still don't do justice to this wonderful mountain home. Twenty-two people filled the great room with echoes of laughter as we reminisced and visited. Plus, everyone slept very comfortably in their own bed. The kitchen was incredibly stocked for large groups including spices! A visit to Estes allowed souvenir shopping and a trip to RMNP offered beautiful scenery and views of elk! The owner was very helpful and very pleasant to work with. We would definitely recommend this property!
17 writers, one house. This is it! The floor plan was perfect and extremely comfortable, giving us together time as well as our personal space. The house was stocked with everything we needed and then some. We will book this house in the future for all of our retreats.
We were at narrow trail ranch June, 2013. We had 16 staying the cabin. We had a blast! There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space when need be and yet we enjoyed so much family time together. It was great watching the grandkids play the many board games available. The hot tub was the biggest hit. Everyone looked forward to their turn in the hot tub. With it being on the deck, it was fun and a stunning view of the mountains. We enjoyed the huge, modern kitchen with every convenience we needed. The guys loved the big grill. Our kids and grandkids took some great hikes around the cabin. Our family has some wonderful memories and great pictures of our time at your cabin. We definitely will be back as soon as possible. Thank you for sharing your awesome home. Bob and Donna
We had a fantastic trip! Dean and Julie were available whenever we needed to contact them regarding any questions or needs. We saw a bobcat, recieved about 12-14 inches of snow, and loved every minute of it. Already considering booking again next year. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful mountain home!
We stayed at this place for three nights during the new years eve. Everything was perfect... From breath taking views to fully equipped kitchen. Very clean! There is a lot of room in the living area as well as in the kitchen and the basement. The home is decorated nicely... Still maintaining the feel of a mountain home but also with some modern and practical amenities. The owners were very quick to respond to emails, phonecalls and wanted to make sure we had what we needed. I strongly recommend this place.
This house was great! My now husband and I got married at this house just two weeks ago. The property and house are gorgeous. We did a small ceremony with just immediate family and everyone stayed at the house. It was perfect! The house is right off highway 36 making it an easy drive right into the town of Estes Park, but it also sits back far enough from the road that it still seems secluded. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for somewhere to go for family gatherings. And the landlords are amazing people too, they were wonderful to do business with. Our family is already talking about doing another trip up there!
I can't begin to tell you how thrilled we were with our stay at your home in Estes Park. It exceeded all our expectations. Your listing on Home Away does not do this property justice! From the fully stocked kitchen (with plenty of dishes for 30 people!) to the organized bathrooms with plenty of towels and even toilet paper, to the detailed instructions on how to run everything - perfection! We loved how you gave us a call as soon as we arrived to make sure everything was as expected. The beautiful scenery made for a picturesque backdrop for our wedding :) We had the ceremony on the lower level porch. All our guests raved about the property and we can't wait to come back someday! Honestly, your home welcomed us and made us leave wanting more. It helped create wonderful memories that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful space!
Our extended family of 16 had a great, relaxing week in this great home! The photos do not tell the complete story. The home is very well-equipped, nicely decorated, clean, comfortable; the owners and caretaker are very responsive and friendly. We were able to easily entertain additional guests, as well. We were close to hiking trails, (Kruger Rock Trail is in Hermit Park, less than 5 minutes away), RMNP, town. We even saw a bobcat in the rocks right outside the kitchen window! We definitely want to return and we highly recommend this home.
Dean & Julie, I honestly don't have enough space to describe how special this place is. Vanessa and I planned on getting married in Estes Park at the Black Cannon Inn in June. Her family and my family had never met so we were looking for a place where we could all spend quality time vacationing and getting to know each other. When we found this house we had this great vision. We envisioned having our reception there too since the property is so spacious. What actually unfolded was a million times better, Dean & Julie are so detailed, organized and extremely helpful. The pictures and description of the house are accurate, but even better when you get there. The kitchen was very well stocked (kiddy plates, sippy cups, to all the spices and condiments imaginable) The entertainment in the house for the kids and adults (movies,cards,board games neatly organized and even a foosball table down stairs) We left an old school Atari system behind for the next group too. They even had cribs for the little ones. Our family consisted of 12 Adults and 6 kids. My family throughout our stay were in constant amazement on how well organized and neatly labeled everything in the house is. The house literally has everything you will need for the perfect vacation or event. The views from the house are incredible, just breath taking when you can walk out and see the snow capped mountains during the summer. I thought having this many family members would start to wear us down after a few days. But the space, comfort, entertainment, TV's, movies, games, hot tub, bathrooms, privacy, laundry rooms and all the little details from extra towels to extra toilet paper helped make this above and beyond what we imagined. They even had extra outdoor tables and chairs for the reception. I wish we could post some pictures of the event so you can see how amazing this place made our event. The house is a 5 min drive to town and 10 minute drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. The property is huge and you can hike around there too.The kids made friends with a couple of chipmunks, Chiplo and Skinny J. The stars at night and the cool mountain were perfect. If you're looking to do a family reunion or a special event in Estes Park, look no further. Thank you again Dean & Julie, words just aren't enough to describe our experience and gratitude for helping bring our families together and helping make this our best vacation ever. In my opinion, best wedding too! Pedro & Vanessa T. Ft. Lauderdale, FL
This location started our two week driving vacation from Illinois to Colorado to Yellowstone. And what a start!!!! Pulling up to the house, we knew it would be everything we saw and read about it. Could not ask for anything better. Plenty of room for our five couples each with their own bedroom and bathroom. A tremendous amount of space and we never even had a need to utilize the huge recreation room in the lower level. Property had all kind of bonuses. The view was impressive, the quietness was really relaxing, and the mountain location provided some great climbing and exploration for half of us adventurous ones. I still wonder how they got those mule deer to wander around the house at daybreak of the first morning. With everything to do in the Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park area, it left us wishing we had an extra day or two to spend enjoying this property. Four days was not nearly enough.
I stayed recently at this home with a group of friends and it was such a great experience. First, the view of hte mountains is absolutely stunning. It's very spacious, well maintained and clean. The kitchen is huge and well-equibbed and the dining area has TWO 8-person tables, which makes it easy to accomodate large groups for meals. I'm looking for the opportunity to go back and I would highly recommended to anybody looking for a large place in the Estes Park area.
Awesome home! Very awesome views! This home is HUGE! Very clean. Very nicely furnished with lots of soft chairs and couches. The kitchen is enormous, well stocked and just wonderful. Great location. Easy to get to. Easy to find the entrance. Very close to Estes Park (within about a 10 minute drive). I would definitely recommend this house to relatives and friends.
This home, and the owners, are absolutely amazing! You will be blown away by the views, by the cleanliness of everything, by the equipment that comes with the home, and with the number of people you can sleep here. We held a conference in Estes Park and a portion of those who came -- one as far away as the Netherlands -- stayed here. We also had most of our meals here at the home. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to host 35+ guests without a hitch. Everyone lavished praise on me for finding this jewel. In fact, the praise all belongs to the owners. They are so kind and cooperative. Everything that weekend ran so smoothly. We are grateful, and will certainly seriously consider holding our next conference here as well. We strongly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the area. You absolutely will not regret it!
Had an opportunity to stay here with a group of friends and it was fantastic. The views from the grand room are wonderful and the home itself has everything you need for a nice, comfortable stay in the Estes Park area. Unlike some VRBO properties I've stayed at in the past, the place is in top-notch condition. The owners seem to love this property and it clearly shows. Highly recommended.
We stayed at this home for 3 days and was absolutely blown away by the incredible views from the living room window. It is a gorgeous home and fit our needs perfectly. Everything is labeled so you know where things are and where to put them back, it is clean and had everything you need to cook a meal at home. We will stay here again, and plan on doing several other retreats here.
This was the perfect setting for spending time with good friends. The home is warm and inviting. We had plenty of space, and and the kitchen had everything we needed....and we did a lot of cooking!!! Forwarding cell phones worked perfectly, and the owners made themselves available for questions.. We made wonderful memories and had lots of laughs. Thank-you for sharing your home with us.
We had 17 women of various ages do the Retreat. At the end of the weekend there were raves about how well this lovely home met our needs for comfort, kitchen utensils, views and easy access into Estes Park and Rocky Mt. National Park. Loved the touch of fresh flowers in several locations!
We have visited Estes Park for over 25 years with our family, staying at various rental homes. Narrow Trail Ranch home is absolutely beautiful and immaculate!! The best in Estes Park! It has everything! A chef's kitchen. Gorgeous furniture. Attention to detail with all the luxuries possible. Very private and quiet. A must place to stay!!
This is my first time using VRBO, and this house was amazing. It was in a gorgeous and easy to find location, we had some much space inside and outside the house to make the stay for 14 people (7 adults and 7 kids) a blast. Plenty of room for the kids to play and stay downstairs and for the adults to have a clean and comfortable living space upstairs. Saw much wildlife; Mule Deer, Red Tail Hawk, Rabbits, and Chipmunks from the house windows. Elk, Moose, Grey Owls, and tons of other wild life nearby. Highly recommend this house for a stay as well as Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park as places to go. Downsides are there is no AC and no cell service; but there are plenty of windows that open for a great breeze and wifi internet in the whole house to keep you connected. Great rental!
We are so glad your stay was great! Regarding cell service, we offer the option to forward cell phone(s) to our home phone and provide the number to do so prior to arrival. We offer unlimited long distance and the process it very easy.
One will not be disappointed with renting this home. From the minute you walk into the home, you will be in awe ~ of the home itself and the beautiful views. The home is furnished with every item needed to make your stay feel as luxurious as if you were staying at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Drinking coffee on the deck watching the sun come up over snow covered mountains is spectacular. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and truly accommodating to our needs. The location is perfect ~ a short distance from Estes Park and centrally located to multiple trail heads. Our entire party absolutely loved this five-star home and would recommend it to all who want to create that picture-perfect vacation memory.
We had more than enough room for our family of 9. The 2 grandsons each had a room and their parents took the other bedroom downstains giving their family their own den and privacy. The rest of us had great accomodations and private baths. The great room had breath taking views and the long dining table made it great for all to enjoy meals together. It was a wonderful home and far exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and very well maintained. We enjoyed the gas campfire outside and the hottub on the deck. It was a great location - out, but certainly close to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Highly recommend this property.
Our stay at Narrow Trail Ranch was outstanding with every little detail to our liking! Our family of 17 adults and 5 little boys fit well in the large living room and even sat altogether at the dining table. Julie and Dean really furnished their dream home for vacationers like us. From the western and mission style furniture to the well appointed kitchen they really have thought of everything. With laundry facilities on two levels and two decks to relax on, we were well served.The location is convenient to but not too close to town and two of our group were able to be dropped off at the gate by the Estes Park shuttle from Denver . In addition to the six bedrooms, the three other lounge areas provided plenty of sleeping space for our relatives. We were lucky to have the owner just down the road while we were there. He was quick to respond to all our requests. The privacy afforded by the location made it really special and my 60th birthday couldn't have been better celebrated!
We had a family vacation after a wedding and this home exceeded our expectations. It was spacious but private enough to where the adults didn't wake the grandkids, people could take naps, etc. The views were incredible, the location was secluded (which we liked) but close enough to town for shopping and going out. And the owner and support staff were accessible and responsive. Even with the storm that knocked the power out the last night, we'd rate it a 9 or 10.
