Fantastically preserved and lovingly tended, this 'modest' home with a stunning view was home base for the Stanleys, a childless couple who did so much to create and promote the beautiful mountain city of Estes Park.

I always love visiting the Stanley Home. The volunteers are all incredible, kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. My mom and I shared tea with them and got a lovely tour. Delicious locally based teas, the best scones I have ever tasted, lovely sandwiches, I felt like a real princess! And the tour was informative and inspiring as well, every thing I learn about the Stanleys makes me love them more. Always highly recommended, and I’ll be back for sure!

I had the most wonderful time at the Stanley Home. We found this place on accident and went to the wrong spot at first and was late for our tour. They then called to make sure we were okay and still coming and that felt so special. The tour ended up being so wonderful and I saw such cool things and learned about the beginning of what would be Estes Park! Highly recommend, we will be back!!

Fran did a great job walking us through the home. Every room had a wow factor from the wallpaper to the antiques. Great way to spend an hour if you enjoy learning about the town and the Stanley's.

We visited this lovely home for a tour last week and very much enjoyed our visit. Our tour guide (Kathy) provided such great stories and information about F.O. and Flora Stanley and gave us time to really enjoy the details of the house. Seeing the house the Stanley's designed and lived in in Estes Park and enjoying their views of the Rocky Mountain National Park gave a perspective of why they loved this place and cared so much about building this community. Highly recommend stopping by and visiting.

This is a story worth hearing and a home worth seeing! I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing time rewinding, imagining how Mr. & Mrs. Stanley lived. Our guide succeeded in inspiring us with the story of Stanley's business success, intelligence, and sacrifices for his community. Highly recommend!

The Story of The Stanley Home Foundation

Not surprisingly, the vision of the 1904 home of F.O. and Flora Stanley being converted to public uses through a non-profit organization has been discussed in the community over many years. After all, it was from this magnificent home that the early 20th century development of Estes Park was greatly hastened by the Father of Estes Park, F.O. Stanley.

In the fall of 2016, a Board of Directors was formed, to found The Historic Stanley Home Foundation, which is a Colorado non-profit corporation and a 501 (c ) (3 ), tax exempt organization.
