Booked this place last minute as we scrambled to find lodging during busy Memorial weekend. Put to ease right off the bat by very friendly owners / hosts answering the phone, who even showed us the different rooms we could stay at when we got to the property. There's a river that runs right along the back of most rooms, and a balcony with tables and chairs outside your room should you choose to admire the view. Depending on your taste, the interior may look a little old, but I thought it was just the typical wooden lodge feel. Our room had two queen beds, overall tidy and clean. Bathroom is on the small-side, but it was perfectly fine for our simple needs.
If you're looking for a luxury property, this definitely isn't it. But given the price, it's a great value choice. It has an intimate feel because it's small. I slept like a baby - no complaint with comfort, amenities, cleanliness. The location is minutes away by drive from downtown Estes Park and the Rocky National Park entrance. They're making some upgrades to the outside facility. If we're ever back in the area, would consider staying here again!
