The Appenzell is a 'private' inn (non-chain) that is a welcome change from the usual chain hotels we stay at. We were in Estes Park to spend a few days hiking and photographing in the nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. The Appenzell is located on the outskirts of Estes Park which is about as IDEAL as you can get. (Estes... More

Thank you for staying with us! We are a family owned business and have not joined a chain so that we are able to keep our own "flare". We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our property, as well as the staff! We look forward to your next stay with us! More

Appenzell has a lot going for it. There's free wifi and satisfying breakfast, snacks and water throughout the day and lots and lots of towels. And there's definitely an effort to provide pleasant service. But there are some basics that made the resort fall short. First the water pressure in the shower was almost non-existent in the morning. There were... More

It is always fun to stay at a private inn. Some of the major chains are great,but inns such as the Appenzell have a little more personality. The exterior of the Inn has a Swiss chalet appearance and the rooms are furnished with pine furniture. Our room was spotless and the sink and shower worked well. Our room was small,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, 2 couples. Our rooms were next to each other and had a lovely patio, chairs, pine trees, trees, chipmunks and hummingbirds. Being able to just open the door and step outside was such a treat--almost felt like home. The room could have used more lighting, and they also had a Murphy bed for extra... More

Our family of two parents and 3 teen girls loved the friendly, comfortable and spotless Appenzell Inn. The staff was friendly and helpful, the lobby water and snacks were appreciated and our suite was spacious and sunny. We drove to town and all of our activities but it was never a problem. We had a great trip.

Stayed in mid August for an anniversary trip with my wife. Room was big clean and comfortable. Had no issues and was an excellent place to come back to after spending the day at RMNP. The staff at the front desk were kind and helpful with directions suggestions etc. We would definitely stay again.
