The location and cleanliness of the property were our top concerns, and we were not let down one bit! The lodge is tucked away right off Fall River Road, with the river running right in their backyard. Compared to other properties in the area, we got a fair price and had a great stay. It was a short drive into Rocky Mountain National Park, and extremely close to Estes Park, yet the property itself was very quiet with the sound of the rushing river right outside our room. The room was simple, updated, and very clean. My husband and I chose the smaller room with the pull-down European style bed, and it was actually quite comfortable. We happened to stay during one of the busiest times for the park, and one of the hottest summers in years, but it cooled off at night and was quiet enough to sleep with the windows open. The front desk service was great too, they have recommendations for restaurants, and they even let me use their phone! There is not a phone in the room, and my cell phone didn't work there (I have US Cellular, and it did work in Estes Park). The best points: location was perfect for nature lovers, yet convenient to food in Estes Park! You can grill on the patio or one of the areas on property because there is a grocery store nearby. The room had modern touches including mini-fridge and microwave, so you can save money by going to the store instead of eating out. They do have a hot tub by the river, but we didn't get a chance to try it out because we were so busy with other activities in the area. I didn't have anything that I really disliked about the place, and we would definitely stay there again!!! :-)
