Our family has been going to the Workshire for more than 20 years. It has been family owned and operated by the Works for 3 generations. We really appreciate that the property has not been exploited as has so much of the others in the area. Cabins are not crowded together, they are well maintained, and there is a variety of sizes from studio to 3 bedroom. Some are the original fishing cabins and some have been built in the last 10 years. The property landscaping is kept native and is a great area for birding and animal watching. It's also only a mile or so away from the quieter entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The rates are kept lower than other resorts by not offering luxury services such as daily maid service, newspapers, or pools. Only the newest duplex cabin has fireplaces. The river is stocked with fish and there is a small children's playground. The owners and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, and respect your privacy. We go back year after year because the cabins are comfortable, clean, reasonably priced and the location is lovely.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Workshire Lodge is a small family style resort on the beautiful Fall River 3 1/2 miles west of Estes Park and 1/2 mile east of the Fall River entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Family-owned & operated since 1946, we offer a quiet setting with cozy, clean cabins from which you may explore the "Park" or just sit on the deck enjoying a good book or watching wildlife. All of our cabins have at least a microwave and mini-fridge, with most having kitchenettes or complete kitchens. Though you're welcome to watch a little bit of TV inside, most guests like to spend as much time as possible on their deck or porch, perhaps grilling something on the gas BBQ grill (every cabin has one). Fall River is known for its trout fishing, so grab your license and bring your gear. Whether your cottage has views of the Rocky Mountain flora, or overlooks Fall River itself, you will be immersed in the beauty that draws thousands of visitors to our town each year (but you'll think you're the only ones here). We do not offer daily maid service, but clean towels and linens are available whenever you like. Pop into the office to borrow a book or game, listen to the chipmunks chattering, the hummingbirds flitting about, watch the deer or elk graze, let the roar of the river lull you to sleep.....and fill your heart with memories to sustain your soul until your next visit. ... more less
