    The Ponderosa Lodge was an excellent stop just outside of Estes Park. Excellent and friendly service with overly affordable and fair prices! The host was kind, helpful and informative. Everything was clean and beautiful! We will be back someday without a doubt!

    I had a room with a Murphy bed that was okay. Men were working right outside my window so it was busy until 4:30pm or so. Nice creek running through the property. Short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park or the town of Estes.

    Would like more information on the Homestead cabin. What is it like? There are not really any photos to look at.

    How far upward into mountains? We have a 4 cylinder midsize vehicle. Will that make the climb to the cabin without any trouble? Is there a nearby hospital within reasonable mileage? Is the road to the lodge paved? This is presuming that the cabin is at high altitude. Thank you for your time. Ms. Gentry

    The Ponderosa Lodge is in Estes Park just about 3 or 4 miles from downtown. The road is paved, and there must be a hospital within 5me miles or so.
