My husband and I stayed at the Bunkhouse for 5 nights during our honeymoon. The location is great and the walk to town was something we really enjoyed, it is about 15 minutes minutes. The apartment itself was pretty perfect for us. The bed was very comfortable, the outdoor living space and access to a grill was amazing, the full...

This little house had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in the area. It would be about a one mile walk into the heart of town, which is just far enough to be away from the tourist crowds. It's a very easy drive into town or the National Park. The kitchen is small, but it had everything we needed...

Management response:

I booked this property as a surprise weekend getaway for my parents (Mother's Day). Denice was very accommodating and informative for them...they had a fantastic time. It was a nice relief that I could trust her to welcome my parents and she was also flexible with their check in time! I'll have to rebook again in the future, but this...

About the neighborhood
Location ... walk to all the activities of downtown Estes Park, and then retreat away from the busy hub. The Bunkhouse is located on a private one acre lot between downtown Estes Park and the Fall River entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. It is an easy 0.6 mile walk to downtown shopping and restaurants; and just 3 miles to the north entrance of Rocky Mt. National Park. The home is nestled among very large boulders & 200 year old Ponderosa pines. It is a great place to enjoy mountain views, wildlife in the yard, the sound of the Fall River, outdoor grilling, dining and relaxing. It is at the base of Old Man Mountain, one of the oldest spiritual sights for Native Americans; hike to the top or into RMNP! There is plenty of secure onsite parking. The Bunkhouse at Old Man Mo... more
