My husband and I decided to spend our 5th wedding anniversary here. We enjoyed our stay until we got home and realized how much we were actually charged. More than DOUBLE what we were expecting!!! We booked online and found a couples package. We first selected the package and then the room. When we put in our credit card information... More

The Jacuzzi Suite was wonderful with gas fireplaces in both the living room and bedroom. The suite we had was a corner room with two decks to look out over Lake Estes. This suite even has 1 1/2 baths. We can truly say that this room exceeding our expectations. It was cold and snowy outside, but nice and cozy inside.... More

Estes Park in all it's snowy glory. This is my favorite time to be here. We got off to a ominous start as my son had the flu. The staff leaped into action.

We stayed her for the first time. It is very beautiful with nice rooms. The best part of the stay was how William and Cassandra made us feel so welcome. They are husband and wife and work in the bar and restaurant. We could have talked to them all night. The resort is lucky to have them.

Checked in to the resort an it was absolutely beautiful. The room (King Lakeview) was well appointed and the view was incredible. The only problem was the front door would not close. That was a concern, so we were offered two choices, a queen suite next door, or a king room on the ground floor. Took the king room and... More

We stayed here on New Year’s Eve 2013. The hotel had a dinner and a band playing to celebrate the New Year. Although we had a great time, there were many frustrating things that started even before we checked in. The good: -This is a beautiful property.

While a great hotel and great location --- I'm not sure I would label it a resort. They feature a full bar/restaurant, good meetings rooms and their hotel rooms are rustic. The front desk was always helpful and attentive. The workout facility is limited --- but their is a great gym down the street (Rocky Mountain Health Club). If you... More

The Waterfront Grill itself is worth the trip. The food is great, and it’s nice to start or finish the meal with a drink on the terrace and maybe a walk around the lake. For the rooms, you get what you pay for. Although the suites are lovely (we were there for a wedding, so we got to see some),... More
