Great place to stay between RMNP and Estes Park. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and had several pillow types to choose from. The staff was super friendly and offered suggestions on where I could see elk outside the park.

The entire family loved staying here. It was everything it promised. It is clean, quiet and staff is very nice and helpful. We literally had the beautiful Fall River just outside our door. One morning a huge bull elk walked through the grounds.

We didn't do much in room cooking when we stayed there, but there were pots and pans, dishes, a microwave, small fridge, and toaster. There was also a grill on the deck that guests could use. I thought it was a nice little... More
