I have been offered the use of a house in Estes Park and would like to visit either the first or second week in May. How is the weather (I know it varies) during that time of year?

Nobody is going to be able to give you a good answer, the swing seasons in Colorado can be so different. I would say it could be anywhere between 0 and 80, and bright/sunny or a blizzard

Wink Spring in Estes Park

The second week of May is just that much safer than the first, but in general you can expect spring-like conditions in Estes Park.

As the first week in May is just this side of April, when it can and does snow, still a bit on the cusp in relation to a month advanced in June, when any snow encountered more likely on the side of the road on the way up to Bear Lake in RMNP. All else being the same, choose the later date, although with the understanding that come about the middle of May the tourists stir from hibernation and begin to reemerge. Not until Memorial Day when the three-ring circus begins, but still something to keep in mind in contemplation of the weather and all other factors.

Basically, if not autumn, it is a fine time to visit. Only expect a good amount of snow in the high country, and maybe weather at times that may deliver it upon your head. Plan in layers for anything from a t-shirt to a jacket, and you'll be ready and fine.
