We booked a room here two weeks prior to our visit to Estes Park, drove 5.5 hours from Alamosa to meet family, only to discover that our reservation would not be honored, since the hotel does not "do Expedia." Cindy, the desk manager, said that prior management, had used Expedia, but current management had been trying to get off the site. Although she said this was happening daily, she could offer no help in locating other accommodations (on a weekend, during a festival). She said we should just go down the road and look for vacancies. We called at least a dozen hotels and finally located a ratty room for more money. If you book here, do so directly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Elkhorn Lodge is the oldest continuous operating lodge in the Rocky Mountain region and is the most historical property in Estes park. Dating to 1874 when Reverend McCreary from Ft. Collins built a small summer cabin on what was to become the Elkhorn property, to today's struggles to save and restore this jewel of the West, the Elkhorn Lodge has been and continues to be a major part of Estes Park. With a fully functioning main lodge, cabins galore, and several spacious buildings for large parties, there's accommodations for any and all at the Elkhorn Lodge and Ranch. And Don't forget about the horseback riding! ... more less
