We had a room on the 2nd floor with a shared balcony overlooking the lawn and a rushing river. There were no stairs involved in getting from the car to the room. Rooms on the 1st floor would require going down a flight. The room had 2 queen beds, a fridge with a separate freezer compartment, a microwave and access... More

This lodge is so convenient to downtown and the Rocky Mountain National Park. The owner is onsite and was wonderful to work with and attentive to all our needs. The grounds are well manicured with beautiful flowers and comfortable seating to enjoy the Fall River. We enjoyed watching the various birds and the visit from the marmot. I also enjoyed... More

I was lucky to find this very well run lodge just outside Estes Park, CO. About 5 minutes from the nice little town of Estes Park this very quiet peaceful get-away is very close to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Every where you look is a National Geographic picture. This is an adults only, no smoking, no frills lodge perfect... More

Great location. Loved the fall river flowing by the property. We saw hummingbirds every night. We loved the property so much, that we would get carry out, so as to sit outside and enjoy the peace and beauty. The kitchenette was nice. We had warm choc chip cookies every night. This place is very convenient to the park and town.... More

We stayed @ the Deer Crest Jul 13-16. Upon arrival our host made us feel welcome and promptly completed the check-in process. Our room (king mini suite) was super clean and comfortable. It included a nice kitchenette with all the conveniences. WiFi service was speedy. We really enjoyed the beautiful location on the Fall River. While relaxing in the lawn... More

Deer Crest is in a great location. A 5 minute drive to the west is the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, and 5 minutes to the east is a grocery store and the main street in Estes Park It's an older facility but very clean and quiet. All rooms have DVD players, and there's a large, free library of... More

We stayed for six nights recently in suite 200... The place is as wonderful as all the other reviewers stay. The staff is so nice. If you need anything at all....just ask. They have smore kits to use at the fire pit and popcorn and hot chocolate and any equipment you need. The landscaping is gorgeous. We saw about six... More

My wife and I stayed at Deer Crest for our anniversary at the end of a camping/hiking trip. When we first saw it from the road, I wondered if I had made the right choice from the many options in Estes Park, as it presents a somewhat basic, unassuming appearance from the front. From the moment we checked in, though,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the view of the river, rock-topped hillside and saw marmots & many hummingbirds. Had 2nd floor room with bistro table & chairs outside (NOT a private balcony but rather a 'bump out' along walkway). Spacious room, comfy bed, coffee maker, fridge & microwave. Enjoyed the fire pit & complimentary s'mores kit one... More

My friend and I stay there once a year for a girls weekend. This place is the best...peaceful, quiet and full of wildlife on the river. We stay in 312 which is about 20' from the Fall River. The resort has been updated and is extremely comfortable. Ken is a great manager and will do whatever is necessary to make... More
