Here at The Refinishing Touch, we have the opportunity to work on a wide range of exciting and unusual projects across the country. There’s always something interesting going on, and we’d like to share some of our experiences with you. Once a month, we’ll spotlight a notable property and give you an insider’s view of the details of the project, the property and the location. For our inaugural spotlight, we’re going to take you to one of the most spectacular locations in the country – the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
One of the perks of working at The Refinishing Touch is that our crews never know where the next job will lead them. Today we have crews operating nationwide, but one particular group is fortunate to experience one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful locations — Estes Park,Colorado. About 90 minutes from Denver and 7,522 feet above sea level, the town of Estes Park stands at the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, Estes Park has a charming downtown area to explore and an abundance of wildlife in the surrounding mountains, rivers and valleys.
Recently, we teamed with the WorldMark Resort, located along the scenic Big Thompson River at 701 Riverside Drive in Estes Park. Accommodations at the resort range from studio units with a kitchenette to three bedroom cabins complete with a full kitchen and a gas fireplace. Our crew is currently working at the resort to refurbish their existing furniture assets, refinishing case goods and re-upholstering furniture to provide the most comfortable stay possible for the guests. The crew completes 10-15 rooms a day: finishes are clean, non-toxic and non-flammable, and emit no harmful fumes. With acute attention to detail and careful planning, guests at the resort never know the crew is working on site, allowing them to experience all the benefits of the resort without interruption.
If you have the chance to visit the WorldMark Resort, there are plenty of attractions to keep you and the family busy. Visit the Estes Park museum, experience the scenery with the Colorado Bicycling Adventure or spend a peaceful day touring the Rocky Mountain National Park. And don’t forget to keep your eyes open for wandering wildlife: Elk are commonly seen around the grounds of the WorldMark Resort, and you wouldn’t want to miss the chance to observe these fascinating creatures.
