Upon entering Estes Park either through Hwy 36,34, or 7..........all three highways intersect at ELKHORN AVE (McDonalds on corner). If you are coming in from Hwy 34 (from Loveland) continue straight on Elkhorn Ave. If you are coming in from Hwy 36 or Hwy 7 turn left at the light onto Elkhorn Ave. The fourth stop light will be Moraine Ave. which also turns into Hwy 36 again. Turn left on Moraine, stay in the right hand lane. This lane will take you up the hill, follow the curve around to the right.There is a stop sign on the left hand lane but you dont need to stop. That is only if you were going straight. You will be on Moraine for about 2 miles. You will come upon another stop light which is MARYS LAKE ROAD. Once you pass thru that stop light immediately get into the left hand lane. You will see the Hwy 66 sign and YMCA sign. You are going to veer off the left hand side of the two lane hwy to the stop sign which is about one to two blocks distance from the MARYS LAKE ROAD STOP LIGHT. (You will be turning off of Hwy 36 to the left). The road you will be crossing is the road that takes you from Rocky Mountain National Park. You will be traveling about .6 miles when you will see a wooden sign on the left hand side of the road.........it will say Rock Mount Cottages. Immediately to your right will be a big sign that will say Valhalla Resort and Machins Cottages in the Pines. Turn right on the road which is EAGLE CLIFF ROAD.You will travel approx. .5 miles. You must drive thru Valhalla Resort to get to our place. There is a 10 mile an hour sign and speed bumps by their office. Please obey this speed limit and watch for their guests crossing the road or cars pulling out on either side of the road. You will continue STRAIGHT on this road. DO NOT TURN OFF THIS ROAD! The road will switch from road base to asphalt and our house and Carriage House is on the right hand side of road.There is a circle driveway with our house no. of 2375 on the upper circle drive. During the season when there may be ice or snow on the road you need to accelerate up the road after passing Valhalla's office and do not stop on the hill. Enter thru the upper circle drive in the winter time so you don't have to slow down on the part of the hill that has more of an incline to it.
