My best friend and I spent a long weekend at Bear Paw and had a wonderful time! The location is perfect. A beautiful line of trees and a running creek served as a barrier between the buildings and the road (something many other properties lacked). The staff was so sweet and helpful, and we really enjoyed borrowing VHS movies from their library. Yes, DVDs were available, but we were feeling nostalgic! On our first afternoon there, we were greeted by a majestic elk, resting on the hill beside the parking area. A group of 3 or 4 of them were outside by the creek each morning. It was quite a treat. The amenities were great as well. The room was very spacious, and we were glad to be able to open the windows for a mountain breeze. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal, and the outdoor grill was clean and had a full propane tank. I highly recommend Bear Paw to anyone looking for a relaxing place to enjoy the mountains!

Room Tip: If you get a room downstairs, you may wake up with an elk on you patio :)

This was our second visit to Bear Paw in two years. This time we did not get an end unit which we had the first time. But it really didn't matter, we absolutely loved our condo and our backyard! Again the management cared very much about our stay and when our cable went out-during a big football game they were right on it. However, it seemed to only be the station and it came back on within 10 minutes. The condos are clean and very comfortable, updated so you don't feel like you are in the 90's. I would definitely recommend to friends and I have many times! Fall river is so beautiful and to be right on it is just perfect! We did not see any wildlife on property this time but last time we practically stood next to a huge fox before realizing it wasn't a dog!

We recently stayed with another couple. The condo we stayed in was perfect!!!! The unit was clean, very comfortable, and the kitchen was furnished with everything needed. It was a bonus to have a washer/dryer in the unit. We will definitely keep this in mind next time we go to Estes Park.

This was our second stay at River Stone, and it certainly will not be our last. We experienced a perfect personal check-in from owners, who explained the amenities and the rules (all good ones by the way ... we agreed with everything).

Situated perhaps 40' from the river, our unit had two bedrooms, one downstairs and the second upstairs. Each has a full bath. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. The kitchen is complete in every way. A washer and dryer is provided, along with a jacuzzi in the downstairs bedroom.

The living room has two sofas, a large coffee table, and an easy to use gas fireplace. The Wi-Fi was fast, and consistent, during our entire stay. The unit was spotless, obviously carefully maintained and cleaned.

Outside, a butane grill and chairs are provided on the deck overlooking the river.

The property is quiet, and convenient to both downtown Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Highly recommended!!

We stayed at Riverstone this past week and wish we could still be there. To begin with, the property is picturesque-lined with alpine tress and surrounded by Fall River and mountains covered with lavender plants that fill the air at night with a soft scent. At night you can see all the stars you miss living in the city and fall asleep to the relaxing sounds of the river flow. Inside, our unit was nicely decorated with bear accents and wildlife throws. They have all of the comforts of home, including a washer and dryer. If by chance you need anything else, I'm sure you can ask the owners-who are exceptionally pleasant and accommodating. Last but not least, the property is perfectly located-a 3 min. drive to the Fall River entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, Safeway grocery store and downtown Estes Park. You can't ask for anything more!!

We stayed at Bear Paw Suites for the first time on October 21-23,2011. We were definitely impressed and will return. We stayed in #6 - it was bigger than what we needed, only requested the 1 bedroom, but those were all booked when we made our reservation. The condo was wonderfully clean and comfortable - everything we needed and more! Some elk came and welcomed us as we were settling in. Managers were friendly. It was a wonderful weekend that we didn't want to end - so glad I found out about this place on TripAdvisor and was definitely NOT disappointed!

Room Tip: #6 is on the end of the complex - all the rooms are "on the river" - was very quiet and co...

This is our second stay at Bear Paw Suites and we cannot say enough about this place. The people who run it are some of the friendliest people we have met and the facilities are some of the best in Estes Park. We stayed in a two bedroom condo.(we called ahead of time and they even gave us the same one we had on our previous stay. Having a separate room upstairs is great for our kids. They have their own bathroom and tv if they want to relax on their own. Everything you need is in the kitchen and the place in extremely clean. Also it is just minutes from down town and Rocky Mountain National Park. We can't say enough great things about the facilities and we will definitely be staying here again on our next visit.
