“Allenspark Lodge a delightful experience”
Reviewed September 5, 2006

August 27-28th 2006
We were intrigued by the website picture of the outside of this lodge. Could it really look this old? Yes it did but the interior was unique, comfortable and the owners wonderful.
The reason we stay in a B&B is because we like the friendly atmosphere there. These owners made you feel like you were old friends.
Every morning we looked forward to what Juanita would make today and were always pleased.
One day we wanted to go horseback ridding but no wrangler at the stable was available so Juanita took us out. She's quite an accomplished horse person as is her husband. I'm not, to say the least, but we had a great time.
We had a third floor room with a old fashioned tub. When we wanted to take a shower we just went to the second floor and there was an old fashioned shower with lots of towels and all rooms had bathrobes.
On an evening walk we came across two Elk. The next day going toward Estes Park we came acrossed a herd of 25.
There really isn't much of anyplace to eat in Allenspark but Lake Mary is just down the road as is Estes Park with lots of shops and restaurants.
If you like an adventure I think you'd be pleased.

Stayed August 2006

I spent one night at Allenspark Lodge in July 2005. The hosts are remarkably friendly and knowledgable about Rocky Mountain National Park and surrounding areas - they suggested a perfect day hike for me. The lodge itself is clean, quaint and quiet, with nice porches, charming rooms and very comfortable beds. Looks and feels like an old historic lodge should. Nothing fancy - but very homey and welcoming with a nice fireplace in the lobby and a rec room with board games and books. Breakfast was excellent and HUGE; I didn't need to eat again until late afternoon. There's a small hot tub indoors on the main floor - it's a nice place to relax after a day of hiking and driving through the mountains. My room was on the 3rd floor. (I was traveling alone, so I booked the smallest room they had.) It had a sink but it didn't have a private bath or a telephone. However, the lodge's shared bath was clean and conveniently located, and there's an old-fashioned phone booth in the lobby. The village of Allenspark is tiny - no souvenir shops, miniature golf courses or fast food restaurants. Just a couple of sit-down restaurants, a livery and one or two other small inns in the surrounding area. You could drive from one end of town to the next in a minute. Teenagers might find it boring - but really, the drive to the tourist strip in Estes Park is only 15-20 minutes, so it's no big deal. Allenspark is located about 10 minutes from the trailheads for Longs Peak, Chasm Lake and Estes Cone, which are three of the best hikes in the national park. Only downside to this inn is it sits close to the two-lane highway bypass that goes thru Allenspark, and the main porch looks out over it. Not much traffic when I was there - but it would have been nice to have a more secluded, scenic view. Still, I plan on returning next year (2007) for an extended stay with my wife and son. You see great views in this part of Colorado all day long. Having a comfy, immaculate, friendly, moderately priced lodge to "come home to" at the end of the day more than makes up for only having a so-so view at the lodge itself.
