In 2010, my son inspired me to buy my first vacation property. I had my list of requirements and desired locations so we began a search for the right property. We searched a lot of the front range West of Boulder, CO but I kept coming back to Estes Park.  He had experience managing properties and if it wasn't for his confidence in being able to create a system that would support us in managing the property ourselves, I would have steered clear of this undertaking.   Bryan, an operational business consultant at Value Stream Consulting was just completing his MBA in Denver and he helped me create a pro forma to consider certain properties, evaluate risk, and estimate income potential. We found the perfect place in Estes Park. Now was the time to act. 

Our Black Canyon Chalet in Estes Park, Colorado is the result of that decision.  We maintain a 4.9 out of 5.0 rating from over 60 guests demonstrating that it isn't just location but the warmth, cleanliness and thoughtfulness that goes into opening your home to others.
