We just spent 5 days with Rudy and Hilde. They are the absolute best hosts and great operators of a bed and breakfast. Excellent maintenance of the property and gracious hosts during our stay. Access to all areas surrounding Estes Park were just a few miles away. The view from our window (Rose Romantic room) was especially nice to wake... More

I have only stayed at one other B & B before and I was a little skeptical about this one being as great as the reviews and pictures made it appear. I had absolutely nothing to worry about. The rooms were as beautiful as... More

Sonnenhof is, essentially, a "Shangri-La" within the Rocky Mountains. The hosts, Rudy and Hilde Farank, are incredible people... helping to make your memory that much more rich and meaningful. In addition to staying here on several occasions, my wife and I have even shared time with Rudy & Hilde outside of this "sanctuary", enjoying a meal, as well as a... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in the Estes Park area. The rooms are clean and the yard is magnificent with a fountain, sitting areas and a bench swing at the top of the yard. If you are looking for peace and quiet or a romantic setting this is the place. We visited Rocky Mountain National Park and found... More

Hilde and Rudy are the incredible welcoming hosts. This is their home also and they make your stay and room feel like you are home. The breakfasts were wonderful and got the day off to a good start. In his earlier life, Rudy was a master wood craftsman and it shows in the finish of the B&B and the unique... More

We spent four nights in the Rose Room at the lovely Sonnenhof B&B. It was perfect in every way! The room is enormous with a sitting area and private deck. Not only are the views from the room fabulous (Mary's Lake) but countless hummingbirds flutter freely to the feeders. Breakfast, prepared and served by the proprietors, is outstanding! ~~ Everything... More
