“Glad we stayed at Murphy's Resort at Estes”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Murphy's Resort offered a very nice stay with lots of space, views, and a great location next to the boat dock on the Lake. Walking distance to Lake Estes and close enough to town to enjoy all that Estes Park has to offer. We woke up to eight beautiful Elk grazing on the property for a perfect photo opportunity! The staff at Murphy's are very friendly and helpful and responsive. They have done a tremendous job renovating this property and creating quality rooms with very comfortable beds. Breakfast was included and a great start to our day in the area. Clean and bright, this place is a gem and perfect family gatherings! Lots of space, complementary grilling and picnic area, large pool, spa, jucuzzi and shower. We can't wait to see when they are done! The improvements are amazing and the service is excellent!

Room Tip: Wake up early and peak out your window to catch the Elk hanging out on the property!

All new rooms that can connect if wished. Spotlessly clean with all new fixtures, beds, bedding, pillows, TV and WIFI. View out over meadow to lake and mountains is beautiful. Staff helpful. The barbecue area, pool area and children's play area make this a very family friendly place. Prior requests can accommodate pets in some units. Friendly congenial people.We recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Lakeview best, roadside least

We took a road trip from Chicago with our 3 kids (first time road trip!) and found Murphy's River Lodge on Trip Advisor which was sold out.

They told us about a new property very close by that they took over called Murphy's Resort. It was really great! The place is super new and was recently renovated - new beds, linens, breakfast room. Breakfast was great - kids loved it. The staff are super friendly especially - Melissa, Loretta, Bruce, and Bryan! We got a king and queen beds for a great price.

Talk about beautiful!!! I had no idea what to expect having never been to Estes Park before, but once pulling into town and into Murphy's Resort I was in love! The rooms are big, clean and comfy and the staff, let alone the owners, were nothing short of amazing. We will DEFINITELY be back to Murphy's Resort!! Thankyou!

Another successful trip to Estes is in the books, and I did something I said I would never do...stay somewhere other than Murphy's River Lodge. For this trip, we stayed at Murphy's Resort (same owner as Murphy's River Lodge) and it was FABULOUS! We enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere and all the different activities right on site- pool (outdoors and perfect for summer, with indoor hot tub), playground, nice barbeque area with several picnic tables and gas grills, shuffle board, free dvd's to watch, continental breakfast. The rooms are super clean and spacious, furnished with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tv, DVD player, hair dryer. Beds are comfy with down pillows and comforters. It was also nice to see some familiar faces from Murphy's River Lodge as well :) The location is great for fishing or a nice walk around the lake. We really enjoyed Murphy's Resort and are thrilled that we now have two options for lodging in Estes...Murphy's River Lodge and Murphy's Resort are the only lodging options we need :)

Murphy's Resort has breathtaking views of the mountains and lakes. The rooms are spacious, beautiful and extremely clean. Even though they are remodeling, they do not let that get in the way or use it as an excuse. The managers, Bruce and Loretta are very professional and friendly people. They are hardworking and go out of there way to make sure everything runs smoothly. They suggested great restaurants and things you must do while in Estes Park. They made us feel like family instead of someone they just meet. We feel like we made new friends and can't wait to go back to visit. (P.S. Excellent Coffee)
