“wonderful place to stay. Terrific owners and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

When I read some of the reviews I wonder if we are all talking about the same place. Too many rules? What? Don't smoke and Please leave the kitchen as you found it. Wow. Terrible.

We initially booked out of all the choices because they enforce a strict No Smoking policy. We return because its a well run place with great people.

Chris and Kim didnt build the place. They bought it used. Each year that we have stayed we have seen renovations and repairs.

My family and I have been coming here from Maine since August 2009. We stay for 10-12 days on our summer stays. My wife and I will be making our fourth visit in April 2012 and returning for nearly two weeks for our 5th visit in August 2012.

We come for the hiking and mountain climbing. The hotel is just downhill from the Fall River entrance of the National Park. Just a few minutes from downtown Estes. The location couldnt be more covenient. Except for the upcoming April visit, we have always stayed in the same Lodge accomodations.

After hiking for 7-10 hours in the Rockies we love returning to the welcoming and very comfortable home style furniture in "our suite." And the bedding is very comfortable. Obviously we love that suite and always feel very at home in it.

Chris and Kimberly are very thoughtful people and jump to help. Last summer, we took a side trip to Utah to replicate a 2001 photo of myself and my then 6 y.o. son in a canyon. He was 16 last summer. Chris told us exactly what time we should get up and go and suggested a route. The route took us directly into Vernal, Utah and we were there by late morning!! The drive was stunningly beautiful.

Chris made some hiking suggestions to a part of the Park we'd not been to. We had incredible hikes in there.

As I said, great location and great owners.

The housekeeping staff is also wonderful and very friendly. Our experience has been highly responsive to any request.

Counting the days until the next stay. We hope they never sell.

Room Tip: look at their site. call/email and ask questions. decide what you really want.

The hotel its self was nice. We felt very uptight and were ready to leave. We left a day earlier as we had probelms with house keeping and her kids that lived on the property. They were loud and noisy. Her kids kept peaking in the window. We felt like any little thing we did would get us thrown off the property. We went two days without tp as housekeeping never filled it. They just threw some of our food and drink stuff away. We were still charged our full rate. Even when we did talk to the front desk and emailed them about these problems they never replied. We wont be staying there again. They are not pet friendly, kid friendly, or friendly at all. Tons of rules and polices.

Room Tip: For couples its great but not a family trip

We stayed for only a night while visiting family nearby. What a gem! The bed was very comfortable, accommodations were very good. The view was amazing! I am looking forward to coming back and staying much longer. The staff members were all very pleasant and made the experience that much better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a deck over the river :)

My husband and I stayed in a Spa Suite for two nights over the Valentine's Day weekend. The room was cozy and relaxing, with a nice view of the Evergreen trees. We lit a fire in the fireplace and filled the spa with warm bubbles. The spa is right by the windows and it was romantic watching it snow outside. One thing I would recommend is that they invest in a larger HD TV - they are not that expensive these days. The TV they had was pretty small and it was hard to see from the couch. There are lots of house "rules" posted throughout the room and the bathroom was a little "tight". But, overall, it was a nice relaxing room and yes, we would stay there again. There are also movies and music cd's you can rent from the front office.

Room Tip: I would recommend a spa suite nestled away in the trees, away from the main office.

Excellent service, great attention to detail, friendly staff and excellent suite. The winter was a wonderland and the town of Estes Park has all anyone could want as far as shopping, restaurants and sights.
