My husband and I stayed at the Kokopelli Inn from June 27 - June 30, 2011 on the second leg of our Colorado vacation. (We first stayed with family in Denver.) I researched on here for months trying to decide where to stay in Estes Park, and I am SOOO GLAD I picked here!! This was our first B&B experience, and now I'm afraid to try any others because I'll be comparing everything to Kokopelli!
The B&B is spacious and located about 5 miles outside of Estes Park in the mountains. As other reviews have stated, it is off the highway, but definitely not a big deal at all. It's nice being outside of town, not right on top of everyone. We stayed in the Kokopelli Suite on the main floor, and it was WONDERFUL! I would highly recommend this suite. It has a two-person shower and wonderful balcony with tons of hummingbirds flittering around and two resident cats -- Snowball and Boots, who I loved to death! There is a fridge (which they stock every day with drinks) and microwave in the room. They have two rocking chairs, which was nice, and a flat screen TV (with cable) with DVD player (they have tons of DVDs to watch). They also have a hot tub out back for guests to use whenever they want.
June and Butch are so nice and hospitable. They left snacks every day in our room, and if we weren't there to enjoy them, they would wrap them up and leave little notes with them -- so cute! We had chocolate covered strawberries, crackers with homemade cheese dip, and homemade chocolate chip cookies the days we were there! Breakfasts are to die for! They are huge -- usually quiche, or french toast, potatoes, some kind of meat, fruit parfait, etc!, so we often didn't even barely eat a thing for lunch or just packed a small picnic to eat in the mountains. They even let us borrow their small cooler to take with us.
Each night we came home pretty late, sometimes after 10 p.m., from our days out hiking or exploring, and they would always welcome us and ask if we saw any cool animals or asked if we needed anything. You can truly tell they care 120% about this place and are committed to making your stay special. We really didn't want to go. We loved every minute of it.
If I had anything negative to say, it would be that sometimes in the late morning or afternoon it would get a little warm because there is no A/C, but they have a fan in the room and it cools off so much a night, it was never really an issue.
I would highly recommend Kokopelli Inn and can't wait to go back!
