“Sonnenhof...a phenomenal Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I've stayed in Estes many times but none compare to my recent stay at the Sonnenhof. Rudy and Hilde Frank make you feel right at home. The property is immaculate and the location is just up the road about five minutes from the Riverside Plaza in downtown Estes.
We're looking forward to heading back there in March for more good times and a great breakfast. I feel blessed to have found such a great place to rest my head in Estes Park.
Thank you again,
Shannon & Tammy

When September's flooding destroyed Highway 34 (the road we would normally take to get to Estes Park), we thought it would be impossible to come up before the end of the year. Wrong! The road repair crews have created a workaround: via Hwy 119 through Boulder Canyon, then on to Hwy 72, then Hwy 7. This route took about one hour more than usual, but it was well worth the drive. Rudy and Hilde have worked extremely hard to ensure that their business is able to continue to run smoothly despite the daunting challenges that come about when a community is recovering from a natural disaster. Their home, perched high above Mary's Lake, was thankfully undamaged and is a mere five minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park. We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a blissfully quiet weekend in our spacious room. Great views, great hospitality, great food -- we will be back.

Room Tip: The Aspen Room was great -- so many thoughtful touches. We could make our own meals in the kitchenet...

We loved our suite on the first floor...large and secluded...wish we could have used the private patio but it was cold and snowy ...beautiful weather. Deer and other wildlife seen daily in the woods. Rudy's furniture! Each one a work of art. The bed is so comfortable. We stayed for three nights and wished for more! Although we stayed during a time of certain restrictions because of area flooding they were of minor inconvenience ...we so look forward to a return visit.

This was an excellent B&B. We stayed in the front room on the top floor (Rose Suite) -- it had a great view out over the valley south of Estes Park. The room was spectacular in furnishing, size, appointment, atmosphere. The breakfast was also excellent -- both in food quality and in the conversation with the hosts and other guests. I'll stay here again when back in the area.

We have stayed in a lot of B&B's over the last 20 yrs, but this one is by far the best one ever! Rudy and Hilde are beautiful and kind hosts. The accomodations are awesome and Rudy made most of the furniture himself. What a talenteled craftsman. And Hilde, well you will not go away from the breakfast table hungry as she is an awesome cook with everything fresh, hot and homemade! What a true blessing to become aquainted with such wonderful people.

My husband and I came to stay at
Rudy and Hilde's Bed and Breakfast the 9th, 10th, & 11th of Sept...it started raining just about the same time we arrived on the 9th, and it continued to rain day and night through out are stay!
We didn't let a little rain stop us from having a good time and a wonderful stay....we went on hike's and did everything that we had planned on doing. The rain didn't let up, but it was time for us to go home to Kansas....we packed up early and started for home on the 12th, we almost got to Lyons and was turned away because the road and several roads were now closed....we headed right back to Rudy and Hilde's they took us right back in with a loving smile, and fed us another wonderful breakfast.....what a wonderful place to get stranded at. Their home is BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY!!!! Rudy and Hilde are very kind with loving hearts in everything they say and do....we also got to meet two other lovely couples who were staying at their B&B. to make a long story short everything you read about Rudy and Hilde, their B&B is all so very true.....and let me add wait till you taste Rudy's apple pancakes, and
Hilde's crape's they are out of this world!!! We are headed back to Kansas! Thank's again Rudy and Hilde...

What a lovely place! Our hosts, Rudy and Hilde, were welcoming, cheerful, informative, kind and completely charming. Breakfasts, on both mornings we were there, were absolutely delicious! Our suite was very comfortable, and offered every convenience anyone could possibly need. Lovely patio and garden right outside of our room, complete with a running stream and a black bear who came down from the mountain to visit the humming bird feeders! I would be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that the wood work around the house - including almost all of the furniture - was hand crafted by Rudy himself. Completely amazing! Our bed was a work of art. Anyway, I can only think of positive things to say about this B&B. We had a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The Golden Aspen suite was wonderful!
