EV #3584 Experience a fully renovated, expansive, historic log home in the Rockies with exclusive views of Longs Peak! Your perfect vacation awaits from this historic, expansive, old-growth log home literally across the street from the Beaver Meadows Park Entrance. You can beat the crowds into the park, and you are still just a five-minute drive to town! The entire home is built to take in views of Longs Peak that are only available from this neighborhood.
You will find a vaulted ceiling of hand-hewn, old-growth logs, and rustic lighting. There is seating for 10 around the wood dining table, a cozy nook for puzzles and games, and comfy seating space for watching your favorite westerns! The entire second floor is devoted to a romantic Master Suite. Wake up on the four-poster bed and watch the pink-orange morning sun illuminate Longs Peak. Stay refreshed with the help of the jacuzzi tub, double sinks, and shower.
The entire home is built to take in the magnificent views of Longs Peak. An enormous wrap-around deck runs the entire length of the house for grilling and wildlife viewing! The main floor is a long, open connection of the four main living areas: the front foyer, the Roosevelt Living Room, the Kitchen, and the Family Gathering Hall. The two quaint log guest bedrooms are located on the same main level and face Longs Peak as well. The view accompanies you as you stroll from one end of the home to the other through these rooms. The entire upstairs of the home is a Master Suite which has the same amazing views.
Here are just a few highlights of what it is like to tour this home.
Enter into a bright foyer where you can kick off your shoes and take off your coat comfortably. You have arrived in a home with the space to accommodate your family needs. Next, make your way into the Roosevelt Living Room. We gave it this name because you feel as if you were transported to the picturesque National Park lodges of the early 20th century when Theodore Roosevelt first established the National Park program. Here you will find a lofted ceiling of hand-hewn, old-growth logs, rustic lighting, Longs Peak views, and polished wood floors. This is the perfect place to recuperate after a long hike, snowshoe or horseback ride.
The Roosevelt room leads to the Kitchen. Here you can cook to your heart's content with the high-end appliances, custom cabinets, and granite countertops. The granite looks like it came from the granite boulders just outside! Plan a little extra time to prep your meal - you will get distracted by the Longs Peak views from the kitchen sink!
On the other side of the kitchen is the Family Gathering Hall where you will be ready for any special reunion. There is seating for 10 around the rustic wood dining table, a cozy nook for puzzles and games, a comfy seating space for watching your favorite westerns, and big windows to take in the views.
Whenever those views make you want to go outside, just do it! An enormous wrap-around deck runs the entire length of the house. Our favorite moment: early morning coffee when the air is still and sweet and elk pass in front of the house. Later in the day, it is the perfect place to grill some burgers, sit at the picnic table and enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down.
Upstairs is the Master Suite. The entire second floor is devoted to this romantic getaway! Wake up on the four-poster bed and watch the pink-orange morning sun illuminate Longs Peak. There is also a napping alcove built into the dormer window for the perfect afternoon snooze, and a corner reading nook for quiet moments. You are going to stay refreshed with the help of the jacuzzi tub, double sinks, and shower! Also, since you can not relax unless your practical needs are taken care of, the Master Suite also provides a walk-in closet and Laundry Room. Relish in the magnificent views of Longs Peak from your Master Suite!
This special home borders Rocky Mountain National Park. You're located a short five-minute drive to downtown Estes Park or the main entrance to the National Park. A quick trip into RMNP and you are ready for hikes short or long, horseback riding or just exploring through the meadows. You can even drive back in for ranger talks in the amphitheaters in the evenings. Take advantage of the unique and charming Elkhorn Avenue shops and restaurants, the abundance of festivals year-round, the sense of history and spirit through the locals.
Bishops Retreat is your perfect starting place for all your Rocky Mountain adventures!
