My husband and I recently stayed at this lovely lodge located just two blocks from the town of Estes Park and a very short drive to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Our room was large with a view of the mountains and the rippling river. It had a balcony over looking the river, a free standing fire place, small refrigerator and microwave, and a coffee pot and coffee set up. Everything in the room seemed new. The bathroom was standard but adequate. The complimentary breakfast was supposed to "continental" but it offered a selection of hot and cold cereal, fresh fruit, juice, and hard boiled eggs in addition to the standard rolls, bagels and muffins.
And best of all was the friendly and helpful staff. From the start the staff went out of its way to be helpful, offering discount coupons to restaraunts. Then in the morning the staff member at breakfast had been a guide in the Rocky Mountain National Park and he wrote out suggestions as to where to go in the park and how to get around in the park; this was extremely helpful. As it was off season, we were also offered the opportunity to stay well beyond check out time. Finally, we were given mugs as a rememberance of our stay.
We would definitely stay there again.
