A goos stroll around the shops and found a scrapbook shop... I'm in heaven..... The manager is a keen royal and we talk royal babies and the evil of prince charles. Looked for moose, none, but we were surprised we didn't get bitten.... Found someone with a solheim cup bag...... I asked did they go...... Oh dear yes...poor americans. They did say how good it was and how good europe were. Turned out we could have gone and got tickets for thirty dollars. ...
... decimated 10% of the hotel, a few ghosties stuck around. We were given the tour of the first floor on which room 217 exists This room is haunted to this day and the ghost, Miss Elizabeth Wilson, ‘lives’ in the room. If she likes the occupant, she may unpack one’s suitcases, but if she does not like the occupant, she makes it very difficult for one to stay…. The movie Dumb and Dumber was filmed there ...
... started hearing the "bugling" of the Elks. The fall is mating season for the Elks, and the males "bugle" to tell the other males 'these are my females, stay away!" You can hear the bugling clear across the meadow or the forest. So we began hearing the bugling while still at Sprague Lake, then as we were heading to a different area of the park for stargazing, an Elk crossed the road right in front of us! When we reached the ...
This morning I sat on a boulder looking out at Nymph Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park and cried. It may not seem like much of an accomplishment to hike an uphill trail to a beautiful mountain lake, but to me it was the culmination of a yearlong journey to claim wellness.
My father passed away in June 2010 and I found myself reassessing my life, looking at who I had become and what I wanted. After several months of focusing on my ...
... to say, there are gorgeous views along the way, and beautiful scenery. But it is beyond my ability to describe. You’ll have to go there yourself.
I encounter the first mosquitoes of the trip, and wish I’d brought bug spray. When we finally reach the falls, I’m glad we came and am sorry I don’t have the right lens to capture them. The sun is very hot here, so we hike a bit further up the hill to a shady spot where we eat lunch, and so do the mosquitoes.

Historical Traveler Reviews Wildwood Inn Estes Park
Wildwood was great
I arrived at the Wildwood Inn on April 9, 2004. Upon my arrival I was greeted by a very friendly woman, who was very helpful, especially in giving updates about the weather, which was supposed to turn nasty.
The room was better than expected. Newly renovated and we enjoyed having a fire place with the wood that was provided. The king size bed provided a much needed nights rest.
I would definetly recommend the Wildwood Inn and will be back soon.
Three R's (Restful, Re-energizing and Romantic)
This location was beautifully secluded in the rocky mountains where you can enjoy observing nature from the privacy of your own hot tub located on your deck.
The rooms are very modern / clean with all the extras included. The staff was very helpful and accommodating as well. Additionally, you are only 1/2 mile from the Rocky Mountain National Park as well as 5 miles from town - great restraunts, etc. Had a fantastic romantic weekend and recharged the batteries.
Wildwood Inn - a perfect romantic getaway
The Wildwood Inn is Estes Park, Colorado is a wonderful place. Everything about it was great - the room (#32), the views, the staff, the wildlife. The room was impeccably decorated and comfortable. The 2 person spa tub was delightful. The views of the Rocky Mountains were magnificent and having elk and mule deer within 20 feet of our back door was a thrill. The inn is located about a quarter of a mile from Rocky Mountain National Park which was very convenient. Everything about our stay at Wildwood Inn was great. We will definitely make a return trip.
We have just returned from our visit to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, Colorado. We stayed at Wildwood Inn and had a wonderful time.
We really enjoyed our stay with you last week, it was very, very relaxing. The accomodations were exactly as pictured on your website and maybe even better. We will be back again and again.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Wildwood Inn. We stayed in #30. The balcony has a beautiful mountain view. It was clean and nicely decorated in rustic mountain decor. The hot tub in the bathroom was wonderful. As in the above review there is a sign in the kitchen that says to leave the kitchen the way you found it. I don't think that means that you actually have to clean the kitchen yourself or any other part of the house. I'm not willing to pay 200$ a night for a place I'm going to have to mop and sweep for the next occupant. That is the Inn Keeper's responsibility. However, it does say that if you want daily houskeeping there is a 50$ fee, but I don't think that is for the end of your stay. If I somehow end up with a 50$ housekeeping fee on my next credit card statement, I will write a whole new review.
Screwed up everything
They confirmed and then cancelled my reservation, pretty much telling me "Tough luck." And they seemed wholly unconcerned with how they inconvenienced me.
I think they got a better offer from a wedding party or something from the sounds of it.
Wildwood was wonderful
Stayed at the Wildwood over Thanksgiving weekend and was extremely happy with the room, amenities, and private setting. Everything required for a romantic weekend. No problems with the housekeeping policy...only asked to leave the kitchen the way you found it, and with a DW, that was easy. Especially enjoyed watching the Big Horn Sheep in back of the property and the easy access to town and RMNP. We definitely want to return!
Wildwood was wild!
I was very impressed with the Wildwood Inn at first, nice hot tub and clean quarters but what they don't tell you over the phone is that you have to clean the place yourself after your stay or they will charge you to have someone else clean it. They also charged our credit card an extra $200.00 for "smoke damage", this supposed "smoke damage" happened as a result of the log they provided for the fireplace. We let it burn over 15 hrs. and upon departure we placed our hand over it and it was not exuding heat. Because we trusted them to have enough knowledge of their own property we ended up being charged!! We disputed this for over a month and then finally decided $200 dollars was not worth the headache. I would NEVER return to Wildwood and I find this unfortunate.
Wildwood Inn was very impressive. The most gorgeous views, extremely quiet, very private, and the ultimate for an absolute get-a-way. The room was well decorated, in a rustic, fising decor. Everything was there for us, including linens, dinnerware, silverware, and a cassette/CD player. Of course, there's always the cable TV, fireplace and indoor hottub! Only 4 miles from downtown Estes and just yards from the entrance to the RMNP, Wildwood Inn is definately a place I would like to return to. Oh, and if you DO get Wildwood, make sure you book a massage with Mary. She is awesome! What a wonderful way to either begin or end your adventure!
