We just returned from a 12 day trip with another couple through Colorado and to the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Phoenix in Arizona. Our first stop was in Estes Park after flying into Denver and renting a car. What a way to start a trip. We had made reservations at Deer Crest after checking out many resorts on computer. The pictures and other reviews were right on. Pictures shown on computer are just as the resort appears. Deer Crest is a quiet and peaceful little resort. Sitting by the river, visiting with our friends and hearing the water ripple over the rocks was perfect. The owner was helpful in discussing possible hikes in park. Very nice restaurant within easy walking distance if you don't want to head to town which is very close. Be advised that this is an older resort but was very clean and nicely decorated. If you are looking for a flashy upscale big city resort with lots of amenities you would probably not be happy at Deercrest. Actually though this was exactly the type of resort we had expected to find by the Rocky Mountain Natl. Park. Would definitely recommend this resort to anyone wanting a peaceful, lovely,outdoor setting in the Rockies.
