My wife and I stayed at Boulder Brook in April 2012. It was our fourth visit. Previous visits were summer trips in 2009-2011. We are booked for nearly two weeks this coming summer. We stayed this time in the upstairs River Suite. Our first time in that unit. The woodstove came in handy on the cold mornings before we headed out for all day hikes in RMNP. A couple of mornings the temperature was in the 30s, and quite windy, and sitting by the stove with coffee while deciding the route for hiking was great. The views are dramatic, especially the view when looking forward through the huge windows over the kitchen area.
We saw as much variety of big wildlife in the morning, from the suite, as we saw in the Park. Elk (lots), big horn sheep, foxes, mule deer were either on the property or just across the street. We got some of our best photos from inside the suite.
Kimberly and Christopher and their staff were as friendly and helpful as ever. We had one small issue and it was quickly dealt with.
The River Suite was immaculate. The upstairs deck is absolutely private and a great place to relax after a full day of hiking in the Park.
The tub is enormous and while I don't generally rate a place on its tub size, a couple of days, after hiking in windy higher elevations with snow and downed trees for 7 or 8 hours, a soak in that tub was amazingly relaxing. The bathroom, like the rest of the suite, was immaculate when we arrived, and each day upon our return, the bathroom and entire suite was spotless. Even the firewood and starters were replenished.
Coming in the shoulder season, nearly everyone we met on a trail or on the two early morning Ranger led bird watches we participated in, were local residents of Estes Park. We made some nice contacts and had great conversations.
Estes Park and RMNP are wonderful places to spend time in and Boulder Brook is a wonderful place to stay.
