This place is a hidden gem! We spent two nights of our vacation in the Old Man Mountain King Loft Suite and wished we had spent the whole week there. The suite was gorgeous -- huge moss rock fireplace, loft bedroom and beautiful decor. It was huge (so big, in fact, when I showed pictures to my mom, she thought she was looking at the hotel lobby!!) The patio overlooks the river - perfect place to relax in the evening after a day in the park & trotting around in town.
We loved the location, too. Away from the hustle & bustle of downtown Estes Park and very close to RMNP entrance.
Ken and Carrie were wonderful hosts, too, Both very nice and pleasant to talk to.
An added bonus was the family of yellow bellied marmots that also seemed to like the property. Hummingbirds were everywhere, as well.
We are hoping to return some day and spend a whole week there.
