The property was beautiful and very convenient to the entrance of the park and downtown EstesPark.
I would rate it a 10 all the way and would recommend it to a family group.
This is our second stay at Fjellheim and it was everything we remembered and more! One of my favorite things about staying here is having my coffee on the deck each morning while looking at the mountains. It is peaceful and relaxing like no other place I've ever been. The house is perfectly appointed to suit all needs. There was plenty of room for 5 people to relax in their own way and not disturb each other.
This was our second year at Fjellheim and it felt like coming back home. Now, we like to pretend this is our second home :) Hosts are simply superb and this also shows up in the way they take care of their beautiful home as well as all the conveniences they provide to their guests. My husband and I were very comfortable in our room, while my parents enjoyed the master room on top floor and our twin girls love, love, love their sweet twin bedroom. We stay out on one of the decks for than half of the time during our stay, the views are breath-taking. We will only stay here on our visits to Estes Park. Thank you Jan and Carolyn, your place is sacred to us!
From the very first email from Jan and Carolyn Evans you know Fjellheim will be something special. They are the consummate hosts - detailed, well organized, and so thoughtful that you will be amazed. Not only is the kitchen the most completely stocked we have ever seen in a rental, they also provide basic supplies like milk, eggs, butter, bread, etc. , sending you a list of what is there ahead of time so you can plan better. The Evans even sent us info on the area ahead of time based on our interests, give great recommendations for dining and activities, and followup with you during your visit to make sure all is well. Their friendliness, great communications and willingness to help you make your trip the best it can be impressed us greatly.
The house itself is immaculate, comfy, and reflects the Evans' Norwegian heritage in beautiful wood floors, clean lines, artwork and tasteful furnishings. The view from each level is gorgeous and a delight to see how different it looks at various times of the day. The lower level has a great tv, plenty of seating, a games table, washer/dryer, a bathroom, and it's deck (yes, there are 3!) has a hammock and woven chair swing to laze about in. The main level again has a tv and comfy seating, with its deck hosting a gas grill and lounge chairs to enjoy. A hummingbird feeder attracts a consistent supply of cuties who will fly right up to you and pay you no mind! Two bedrooms are on the main level, sharing a bath, and the master is on the 3rd level with its own bath and small deck. Everything is fully kitted out, and you will feel truly pampered.
We really cannot say enough praise for Fjellheim or the Evans.....our whole week was absolutely perfect and we can't wait to return. Having visited Estes Park for 25 years, and stayed in a number of rentals, we have finally found a home away from home, and new friends to boot!
We had two families staying at Fjellheim, with three young children. We all felt very comfortable, with plenty of space and everything we needed right in the home. The location was amazing; we were able to go hiking in the morning, come back for nap time, and then go downtown in the afternoon. Jan and Carolyn had so many items in the kitchen, that we barely needed to buy anything; it felt like we were at home. We were able to cook dinner every night, and we also made birthday desserts for a couple of the boys. We would definitely return to Fjellheim and recommend it to anyone staying in Estes Park. On a side note, my husband says he highly recommends Smokin' Dave's BBQ to anyone staying.
This 3 level house, each with its own balcony/patio, in a mountain side community affords a gorgeous view westward overlooking a valley and snow capped mountains beyond. It is located only 5 minutes from RMNP entrance and the village of Estes Park as well as other dining and activity places. It has plenty of room with 3 levels but has a cozy feel to it as well. The reservation process was easy and the hosts were extremely nice and accommodating making sure our family had arrived safely even with our late arrival. I would definitely stay here again when coming to this area!!
This is a truly exceptional property. The views of the Continental Divide are unmatched, and with three decks it is impossible not to have every opportunity to take in these great views. Also, because the neighborhood is very private, it is very quiet. At night all we could hear were the elk bugling and coyotes howling. Inside, the property is immaculate. Very comfortable and spacious. The hosts could not be any more gracious. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in the Estes Park area.
