Wife and I stayed here for 3 days in October. We chose this primarily on price as they slash their published prices at the end of the season in October. Very much an "Old School" and "Mom and Pop" operation as others have noted, an absolutely lovely property, great peaceful location and delightful on site owner Ken who seems to... More

We enjoyed our stay at this adult only, non-smoking resort. Ideally located for our adventures into RMNP and Estes Park. The room was very clean and maintained. Fresh and spacious. Having the river run through the property added to the appeal of our time visiting.

I knew it was a good sign when we got to the entrance of Deer Crest and a male elk was standing near the sign grazing! The staff at check-in said the elk had been around all day and sleeping on the river side of the property earlier that morning. Deer Crest is a nice change from the big box... More

We found ourselves with a free weekend, glorious Colorado weather and our "regular" Estes Park lodge fully booked. We gave this spot a try and were so impressed! Wonderful, serene accommodations with new mattresses (really comfy). We kept the windows open at night and could hear the river in the distance. The morning coffee on the little patio by our...

The Fall River Suite - Riverfront room was wonderful. We lit the fireplace every evening. The room was clean and big. The bathroom was modern and had nice tile and large showerhead. What a nice location; 4 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park. A quiet place to enjoy nature.

We very much enjoyed this adult only location. Quiet, right on the Fall River. Room was large enough and nice enough. No smoking, no loud music early in the am or late at pm. Location is excellent. Away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to everything, including the National Park. The grounds are beautiful, the owners very helpful... More

The first thing we noticed were how beautiful the grounds were and the peace and quiet, all we could hear was the sound of the river and we left our window open all night to hear it. Also, outside of every room are 2 chairs (bar stool type) and tall table to sit and have a drink or coffee in... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. I would say this place is a small mom and pop resort and the owners were so nice. The resort was nice and quiet. The grounds were pretty down by the stream with beautiful flowers everywhere. The only problem was it's pretty close to the highway. Which wasn't a deal breaker for me. I... More

Deer Crest Resort is the perfect place to stay while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. The resort was very quiet during our stay, and most of the other people we saw were older couples. Our room was spacious with a nice sized fridge, microwave, and two very comfortable queen sized beds. There is a table with four... More
