Recent Estes Park reviews

  • Top Notch

    "Three couples comfortably stayed here at Buffalo Ridge Lodge for a week and never felt "under foot or cramped" at all. The three king-suites each with it's own huge bathroom and walk-in closets are magnificent. The views are incredible. A neighbor on each side, but not too close so privacy is still adequate. What I loved most is that absolutely everything in the home is top-notch... not like a lot of rentals where the furnishings and décor are bare bones and blah. This felt luxury at every moment. The owners are wonderful to deal with. We would definitely recommend to our friends and hope to return again ourselves."

  • You won't be disappointed!!

    "If you are looking for the WOW factor, this property has it! Even better than the pictures, especially the kitchen which is open to the living room and has beautiful appliances. I rented this for my husband's 40th birthday to spend with our family of 6 and our best friend's family of 3-there was more than enough room and we had an awesome time! Our favorite parts were the hot tub with the softest towels we have ever felt and an incredible view of the stars. The gigantic fireplace that made a huge space feel cozy, the fireplace in the master bedroom/bathroom was lovely too. It's so close to town but you feel a million miles away. The gorgeous mountain views with plenty of wildlife- elk, deer and turkeys. The games...which we busted out (the competition was fierce)! They have stocked everything you'll need, even a hand mixer. So, I was able to make a birthday cake :). Grocery store is very close and Smokin' Dave's BBQ (which is a must). Sue and Mark are passionate about their home and providing a high level of service--thank you again for everything!!"

  • Comfortable home , great views

    "Fjellheim was as comfortable as home. This is an outstanding place for relaxing and experiencing the beauty of the Estes area. The kitchen is supplied with all the tools you could need for preparing great meals, The beds are comfortable. The full baths on each level are a plus, we had some family from Longmont stay a couple of nights with us and it is nice that there is no waiting for the bathroom. The view of the Continental Divide from every level of the house is stunning. Was great to enjoy that morning cup of coffee on the deck as the sun lit up the mountains every morning. Jan and Carolyn are very gracious host, very responsive to any question you might have. I'm sure we will return. Fjellhiem was the most comfortable and enjoyable place that we have stayed in the Estes Park area."

Estes Park Travel Tips

At the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in Colorado thanks to stunning mountain vistas and a charming downtown. Situated 7,522 feet above sea level, the entire area is home to breathtaking views, incredible natural scenery and plenty of skiing and hiking adventures to be had. The town itself has the feel of a quaint mountain village yet allows for a range of phenomenal cuisine and culture in the middle of an outdoorsman's paradise. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a memorable family vacation or just isolation from the fast pace of the city for a few days, Estes Park is the perfect destination.

Estes Park Attractions

Known by many as the gate to Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is a veritable treasure trove of activities based around its immense natural beauty. Featuring guided tours, world class camping, great hiking and an absolutely endless supply of beautiful backdrops for family photographs, Estes Park is perfect for those who appreciate the great outdoors. The four trailheads accessible from the town offer fantastic access to the local hiking trails and phenomenal ski slopes, as well.

Within Rocky Mountain National Park alone there are over 100 separate peaks that rise above the height of 11,000 feet. As a result, Estes Park has become a prime destination for climbers and backpackers from across the globe. Strap into a harness, don't forget the crampons and scale some incredible rock faces or, if you're looking for a slightly more tame experience, take some of the winding backpacking trails to the top of these beautiful peaks. Since many of these peaks run directly along the continental divide, climbers can take in the unforgettable sight of watching snow begin its long journey either east to the Atlantic or west to the Pacific.

Estes Park Things to Do

If you're visiting Estes Park in either the spring, summer or autumn, then you'll want to take part in the fantastic trail running scene. While the city does offer a variety of trails that cater to all skill levels, some of the most beautiful scenery is found on two of the more challenging routes, Black Lake Trail and Lumpy Ridge Loop. While the former is an intermediate, 9.6-mile trail, Lumpy Ridge Loop runs for over 10 miles and features a nearly 3-mile change in elevation from start to finish. Black Lake Trail is recommended for those desiring water-centric viewpoints, as it passes by two lakes and a series of waterfalls. Lumpy Ridge, considering its changes in elevation, caters more to those looking to view the world from above as they pass through mountainous ridges and rugged terrain.

Of course, some people will prefer to experience the beauty of Estes Park from the valley below. Since its official sanctioning by the United States government nearly a century ago, Rocky Mountain National Park has served as a habitat to both domesticated and wild horses. A variety of options are available through the park for horseback riders of all levels, including day trips and backcountry horse camping sponsored by the National Parks Office. Those who would prefer to be a bit more independent can set off alone and will find over 260 miles of beautiful wilderness trails for their enjoyment. Both Thunder Lake Trail and Finch Lakes Trail are popular among vacationers and locals. These trails are accessible from the Wild Basin Trailhead, which is easily found from multiple park entrances.
