“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

clean, comfortable, wood burning fireplaces all being walking distance (1-2 blks) to downtown Estes. I have stayed here many times and the owners, who operate the place, are extremely friendly and very accommodating.

I highly recommend the Misty Mountain Lodge.

Just spent Thanksgiving at Misty Mountain Lodge. This was our first stay and we really enjoyed it. The owners were very friendly, helpful and available. We had a cabin with a full kitchen (#14). It was very nicely appointed. The lodge is a short walk to downtown Estes Park. This was a great place to stay if you wanted to go to the Christmas Parade (Friday after Thanksgiving). If you've ever been there you know that the town fills up and if you have to drive to / from it's gridlock. We walked over, had dinner, stepped out to watch the parade and walked back. It was great!

The hot tubs were very inviting; the upper deck one is a great place to watch the stars & town lights at night.

Room Tip: Other than the hot tubs, while there wasn't a 'fitness center', EP is such a walkable to...

We stayed at the Misty Mountain Lodge in mid-October. We had a suite and found it to be just what we wanted. It was open and inviting without being overdone and located just one block off the main area of shops in Estes Park. It was great after a day of hiking to be able to walk somewhere for dinner on the days we did not cook in. The kitchen was minimalist and well worn but in keeping with the very reasonable rate that we paid. The owners were helpful and we also bought eggs from their daughter and firewood for the fireplace from their son. We come back to Estes Park every few years and we will definitely stay at this lodge the next time.

We stopped here for 2 nights on a grand tour of "the West." Misty Mountain Lodge was just lovely! My husband and I had a cute room with a kitchenette that was very clean and nicely decorated. We were in walking distance of all the restaurants downtown for dinner, and there was a Safeway just up the road to grab groceries for breakfast and our national park lunches. The staff here are friendly and great, too! If we go back to Rocky Mountain National Park, we'll definitely be booking a room here!

This is our second stay at Misty Mtn.. The grand kids, son, daughter-in-law & us (grandparents) all were able to have a lot of fun in a fun, safe, friendly & easily accessible place. We had adjoining suites 19 & 20, which were freshly renovated. The family that runs this lodging is really nice. Peter & Ellen & their kids are an added bonus. If you're going to Estes - stay here!

Room Tip: 19 & 20 are freshly renovated & great if you want to join a 2 and 1 bedroom suite - which we...

Misty Mountain is one of the best places to stay in Estes Park - we stayed here this summer for a friends wedding and came back for our anniversary. It is close to town with several bars and restaurants within walking distance, a 5 minute drive to Rocky Mountain national park and the owners are great. It is a perfect place for a romantic getaway or a weekend with the family. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We had a last minute need for a one-nite stay. Thankfully the proprietor could accommodate us! Inexpensive and only a block from Main Street. Room furnished rustic, with the cheap kind of tourist souvenirs you'd find in Estes. Small room, TV and fridge, fireplace ( not gas)' very small bathroom and shower stall. Property had hot/tubs, but weren't appealing enough to try.

Located on side street with limited parking.

This place was very inexpensive, and the owners very home style friendliness. Good for people on a budget!
