No place we've ever been compares with Rams Horn--fewer than 50 units, and a fantastic laid-back, family atmosphere. The views are breathtaking, only about a mile from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, where we spent a lot of our time, hiking and just taking in the beauty. The units are really nice 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 2-story family "houses" with all the comforts of home. Instead of institutional white towels and acrylic shower surrounds, there are color-coordinated linens and beautifully tiled baths, and Anderson-type wood windows instead of the standard aluminum kind. The trees and landscaping are professionally done and beautifully maintained. There's a very nice exercise facility, but the weather was so great while we were there that we never used it.
The manager, Deborah, has apparently been here since the beginning--about 1990--and everybody, from front desk to housekeeping to maintenance, is super friendly and makes every effort to make guests feel right at home. There's a free wine & cheese (and lots more) reception every Saturday afternoon, and a $3.00 Belgian waffle breakfast every Sunday morning. This is the only place we've ever been where guests (and owners--this is a timeshare property with all developer units sold out) interact with each other on a regular basis. You leave feeling like you've made new friends.
Estes Park is a glorious place, and there's no place else in Estes Park that measures up to Rams Horn. Some places are pretty junky but still rent for quite a wad just because they're in Estes Park. If you come here, you'll definitely want to come back to Rams Horn.
