“Long weekend - would return”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Beautiful area, quaint and comfortable amenities. Enjoyed waking up to the running river and having coffee on the deck overlooking it. Loved having a full kitchen with dishwasher. Gas grill for every unit. Fireplace with wood available (for cooler season, we received the last few logs and enjoyed having the screen door open to listen to the river while the fire roared next to us). So much to do/explore between Estes Park and RMNP. Would definitely return.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Overall, we were very happy with our stay at Woodlands. Reception was very friendly, condo nicely cared for and well cleaned on our arrival. Comfortable furnishings and loved being able to sit on the deck (or even just open the porch door) and hear the beautiful rushing stream. The highway is just on the other side of the river, but the water sounds covered most road noise. Loved being near the RMNP entrance and quick trip into main EP town.

A few minor things ...
The cell reception and wifi is very spotty. Not too big of a deal, but we did find it challenging to check in with our kids at home. It would be a problem if you planned to keep up with work in downtimes.

It was very hot during our first few days - unusually hot for EP I think - but even with the porch door open and the bedroom fan on sleeping was a challenge until it cooled off late night.

Planned to watch a movie on last night after several active days in the park, but the DVD player lacked proper video cable. After trying for awhile with the poor picture and 1/2 audio ended up watching on a laptop. Kind of a bummer.

Would have rated Service a "5" because of their friendliness, but went with a "3" because of limited office hours and no call back on the DVD player cable issue.

Our condo on the Fall River was a lovely comfortable place to stay. It was spacious! Nature provided a perfect spot to build! The rushing river, beautiful trees and wildlife, and proximity to the town of Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park made the condo a perfect place to stay. Having a full kitchen was most accommodating. The stove was a little old but workable. Attention to little things like the liquid soap bottle and dishwashing soap plastic container which held the soap but made accessing the contents next to impossible would be nice. Those are little things, but when soap granules spill all over the floor when picking it up, big messes occur. It was nice to have clean towels replaced when needed. The king bed slept comfortably. The deck was fabulous. We were so very pleased that we asked for a top floor condo. Bringing in our suitcases was a breeze for two older folks.

Room Tip: Condos on the upper level make bringing in luggage easy.

The Woodlands on Fall River have the friendliest staff. Betsy is so sweet, informational and I LOVE... LOVE...LOVE the pictures for sale in the lobby. The wildlife is abundant and scenery is gorgeous. They had firewood cut for our use and even a laundry facility! The units were clean, had a great kitchen and contained all the utensils we needed. The Woodlands is Awesome!

Room Tip: Drive slowly on Fall River Road, it is easy to drive right by The Woodlands entrance. Call ahead f...

Cant say enough good things about the Woodlands. Have stayed there twice now and the staff is wonderful and location is great. Love to sit outside by the stream and just relax. Each time we have stayed here, Elk have come and visited the property and once saw a red fox. Top notch! Will stay here again when we come back to Estes.

Not fun to get to in 10 degree snowy weather, but once we did-perfection!! Provided firewood, lots of wildlife there right from the balcony & a beautiful view of the creek. Comfy beds, and very clean. Immensely enjoyed.

River right outside the condo is just a perfect setting. The rooms were super clean, the kitchen accessories were perfect and all the appliances in good state. We went there for a Sunny Spring vacation but it snowed unexpectedly in Estes. Though it snowed, we enjoyed the stay here.We enjoyed the open Jacuzzi tub in light snow. It was a memorable experience for me and my husband. Also, is has advantage for being well connected with the grocery store and the market. We would love to come back again.I have nothing to complain about , it was worth our money.
