This place was awesome and I got it on a groupon deal. I took my teenage children there over New Years last year. The hotel staff were very pleasant and they were gracious enough to upgrade our room to the floor with the most reported activity (for free) since there were many vacant rooms. We had driven 10 hours so were exhausted when we arrived. Laid down on a large, very clean, and comfortable bed with my two daughters. I was lying facing the nightstand and because the bed was crowded, my face was only about six inches away from it. I was just about asleep when I heard something being dragged across the nightstand. I thought a pen had slowly rolled off the nightstand. My eyes popped open and I prayed my daughters were asleep already and didn't hear it, as I knew it would freak them out. I laid there with my eyes open for a couple seconds, and then one of my girls sat straight up. I asked them if they heard it, and they said they did. I looked all over on the floor for what might have rolled off but found nothing. We laid down again, and right away the rolling sound happened again, but quickly this time. Needless to say, we slept with every light on that night. I was more frightened about it than my girls. However, nothing else of this nature occurred the rest of the trip, and we had a fabulous, relaxing time.
There were definite pros and cons to staying there in the winter. The pro is that it is not busy, and it was almost like being the owners of a big, beautiful house, because you could wander around at night without disturbing anyone. We pretty much had free rein of the entire place. The downside is that many businesses in Estes Park are not open in the middle of winter. There really was not much to do in the city itself, but it gave us a great opportunity to hang out in a wonderful historic home.
