We visited the Estes Park area (main attraction for us was the RMNP) in late May and this resort is literally within a couple miles to the park entrance. This was number one reason we chose this resort and we were not disappointed in that respect. The number two reason was that it was an adult only resort – we were hoping this would guarantee quiet and the likelihood of enjoying nature at its finest. In this area we were disappointed. Quiet was not advertised, but was our assumption. We do not feel like the resort was misrepresented in anyway. It is a lovely resort, our room was large, included a microwave and refrigerator, outdoor seating was available outside each room as well as in the grassy area between the rooms and the river. Family run and friendly. We were not awakened by noisy children or loud teenagers, but we were awakened each morning of our stay by motorcyclists who felt the need to start their motorcycles and let them “warm up” before taking off. Leaving our windows closed did not muffle the motorcycle engine alarm clock each morning. We learned that an adult only resort does not guarantee quiet evenings nor peaceful mornings and in that we were disappointed.
Even though it is a lovely resort, we will try another next time hoping for more peaceful mornings.
