The YMCA of the Rockies is located right next to the Rocky Mountain National Park. We paid about $120 a night for a room in a lodge with a balcony that had an great view of the Rockies. The room was sapcious and clean. It does not have TV or AC (but it gets down into the upper 40s or lower 50s at night). It was very comfortable.
You can hike into the Park or take advantage of many other activites at the property. The activities are mostly aimed at kids or families. Most are included in the cost of the room.
Jackson stables is located on the property. We did a couple three hour rides into the Park. The wranglers are great and so are the horses. This costs extra, but is well worth it.
I highly recommned this for families or couples who are looking for a quiet outdoor centered vacation.
The food is average, so don't expect too much. Estes Park has alot of very good restaurants just a few minutes away.
