This is a beautiful property right on the river. We stayed in one of the fireplace suites with a kitchenette. The location is great - close to Estes Park and also near one of the RMNP entrances. The grocery story is just a mile or so down the road on the edge of town; couldn't be easier. After seeing the other resorts in the area we thought this one was particularly well laid out - there's a nice open space for sitting by the river, but none of the rooms are up against the road either.
Our room was very clean and comfortable. The kitchenette had a full size fridge, a microwave, a toaster oven, and an electric range (no stove). There was also an electric skillet - very nice touch. Basic dishes and cooking tools were provided. They had both gas and charcoal grills as well. The room was cleaned every day. You can tell the whole place is kept in good repair.
The owners were very nice, gave us plenty of information leading up to the trip and some good restaurant recommendations once we got there. We saw plenty of wildlife right from our door - elk, hummingbirds, chipmunks, and even a marmot. Very relaxing to sit outside and listen to the river. We'd definitely recommend this resort.
