Fall in Love with Estes ParkEver dreamed of living in Estes Park?
A Great Place to Visit...A Better Place to Live!
Since those early days, Estes Park's reputation as a resort destination has grown. Millions of people have stayed and enjoyed vacations here since Stanley's days, including Pope John Paul II, the Emperor of Japan and President George W. Bush.
Many years in mid-summer, since about 1974, my parents loaded up the station wagon in our small town of Roscoe, Illinois and we headed West…Colorado bound. Our annual summer vacations at the Estes Park YMCA camp became a tradition. It was easy to fall in love with the Rocky Mountain National Park area. When my parents retired in Estes Park in 1992, my trips became more frequent and longer until in 2007, I realized my dream and came to stay. I have witnessed many visitors fall in love with Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park, so much so that they don't want to go back home. I know this dream first hand and it is my passion to help others find their place in what I consider 'paradise on earth.'
If you can't have fun in Estes Park, then….You probably don't know how to have fun! There is so much to do and see in Estes Park it would take a lifetime to do it all. But I will try! When not showing and selling properties, I spend my time in and around Rocky Mountain National Park hiking, snowshoeing, in-line skating, trail running and Telemark skiing. My love of the mountains is shared with my active Australian Shepherd, Aiko. I also enjoy creating new art pieces with a focus on natural images.

In the Estes Valley and the national park, this typically means sighting regal elk and charismatic mule deer.

The Stanley Hotel, known for its architecture, magnificent setting, and famous visitors, may possibly be best known today for its inspirational role in the Stephen King's novel, "The Shining." This Colorado hotel has been featured as one of America's most haunted hotels and with the numerous stories from visitors and staff, The Stanley Hotel continues to "shine" today, as it did in 1909 when first opened.

Sprague also undoubtedly appreciated the breathtaking views of the Continental Divide, which are best seen from this half-mile-long trail at the far end of the lake. While there are lots of Estes Park cabins you could rent or purchase, an accessible backcountry camping site is located in the area. Walk the scenic Nature Loop, only 0.8 Miles Round-Trip.
