“A lovely place, would stay again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

My husband and I spent two days at Deer Crest Resort during 4th of July long weekend. It was a lovely and beautiful place. The couple who own the place were very nice.

We had a fireplace mini suite. The suite was clean, quite, and had everything we needed, a refrigerator, microwave, ... even kitchen utensils. You can cook if you don't want to eat out.

There's a creek at the back of the hotel. There were some swing chairs and a BBQ area by the creek. Very nice!

I really like this hotel, a nice place to relax. I would definitely recommend this place, especially if you are planning on stay for more than one or two days.

This is a beautiful place but if you like to stay up late while on vacation this is not the place to stay . People are on vacation would like to be able to use the fire pit past 10pm once again on vacation.
Very clean rooms needs to be updated with flat screen tv
Do not need a curfew while on vacation thanks

This place was exactly as the reviews indicated. Loved our private balcony 30' from the river. Older but very clean and maintained. Could not be more pleased and would stay here again. Just far enough from town to be away from the hustle but close enough for easy access to food and shopping.

We visited the Estes Park area (main attraction for us was the RMNP) in late May and this resort is literally within a couple miles to the park entrance. This was number one reason we chose this resort and we were not disappointed in that respect. The number two reason was that it was an adult only resort – we were hoping this would guarantee quiet and the likelihood of enjoying nature at its finest. In this area we were disappointed. Quiet was not advertised, but was our assumption. We do not feel like the resort was misrepresented in anyway. It is a lovely resort, our room was large, included a microwave and refrigerator, outdoor seating was available outside each room as well as in the grassy area between the rooms and the river. Family run and friendly. We were not awakened by noisy children or loud teenagers, but we were awakened each morning of our stay by motorcyclists who felt the need to start their motorcycles and let them “warm up” before taking off. Leaving our windows closed did not muffle the motorcycle engine alarm clock each morning. We learned that an adult only resort does not guarantee quiet evenings nor peaceful mornings and in that we were disappointed.
Even though it is a lovely resort, we will try another next time hoping for more peaceful mornings.

Our room at the Deer Crest Resort was huge! Very comfortable, and far enough out of town to be quiet but still handy for everything - the Rocky Mountain Park and the lively town of Estes Park.

The room had everything we needed, was clean and in good order. Hummingbirds were whizzing around the balcony area which was fun to see, and the river chortled its way just across the grass.

Very nice - would recommend you visit!

We wanted a quick last minute couple night get away and found Deer Crest. What was appealing to us it was adult only and 100% smoke free.....What we found was even greater yet....we had a nice clean room RIGHT on the river....not on the Fall River road. We had a king bed that actually had king size pillows, not a zillion small pillows and a great quiet retreat with access to restaurants and Estes Park. We used the free shuttle service and never used our car the whole time we were there. When it was our morning to leave we found we had picked up a nail in one of our tires and one of the owners even came out and helped....Great people, great place and we will be going back again...

Room Tip: Use the free shuttle just in front of Nicky's and get down town and avoid the parking.
