Ann at the front desk was so nice and so helpful for our first weekend stay in Estes Park. We have been visiting Estes Park for many years, but we always visit for the day. It is much better to spend a weekend and in walking distance to downtown. The weather happened to be awesome for a November weekend, and... More

A couple different things I noticed about this property. Firstly, their check out time is 10:00 rather than the normal 11:00. Secondly, they still use actual keys, not cards like the majority of hotels these days. Thirdly, they require a deposit of $100/night which I find incredible. Fourthly, their pool closes at 11:00 rather than the normal 10:00, but that's... More

Great location. Minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. Wake up to beautiful views. Friendly staff willing to go the extra mile for you. When returning back to Estes Park, this will be home again for us.

This is Diamond Resort property although we are not timeshare owners (no timeshare staff in the vicinity to worry about.

We stayed here 2 nights in late September 2016 to attend a wedding. Our room had a sitting room, bathroom, bedroom. All the rooms were small and 2 people moving around was tight. Because the bedroom was so small, we didn't have room for 2 large suitcases and 1 small one. Therefore we had to keep one big suitcase in... More

We arrived at Estes Park late in the evening. Part of the problem was we had to take a long detour way up north on our way from Steamboat Springs as the Trail Ridge Road was closed due to weather. It was dark when we arrived so we didn't get to walk the property grounds or admire any views. A... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The lodge is ideally located in the heart of Estes Park on the north side of Prospect Mountain and only minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. Breathtaking mountain views surround you making this the prefect location for your mountain wedding.The landscape of Rocky Mountain National Park is the steepest in the United States. Sixty mountain peaks over 12,000 feet high result in world-renown scenery and provide challenges for hikers and climbers. The extreme topography creates an amazing range of ecological zones within a short distance, similar to the changes that would be seen in a drive from Denver to northern Alaska. ... more   less
