Our 5-day stay at Deer Crest Resort well exceeded our high expectations. My wife and I had a side-by-side room with my parents on the second floor overlooking the Fall River. The rooms were spacious and beds very comfortable. The setting was serene and peaceful and very relaxed. We all enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool after our early-morning hikes and just sitting out on the deck drinking wine and eating appetizers listening to the river rush by.
The hotel is only 3 miles from the entrance to Rocky Mtn National Park and 1 mile uphill from downtown Estes Park which made it extremely convenient to both areas. Our favorite early morning routine was to walk the 1 2/3 miles to Starbucks downtown and then walk back to Nicky's so we would be hungry for a great big breakfast. What makes Nicky's so exceptional, along with the food, is the fact too that you can choose to eat right over or next to the Fall River. It was quite the ambience! We did have dinner there as well and the food was excellent and not unreasonably priced.
All in all we had an excellent time and will not hestitate to book the same rooms next year if or when we come back. I would recommend Deer Crest to anyone who loves to stay in a tranquil setting with well-appointed accomodations.
