TravelPod Member ReviewsWildwood Inn Estes Park
This is more of a cottage than a hotel room and so should be reviewed as such. There is no housekeeping and no restaurant. The Internet signal is very very weak (ie useless really!) but there is free WiFi at the Starbucks in Safeways or in the café at the Stanley Hotel, if you really need it.
The large kitchen was well equipped, which made self catering an easy and welcome choice at the end the holiday. A great location and very comfortable - the inside massage hot tub was really lovely. the nearby historic Stanley Hotel would have been a good alternative choice but would have costs around $400 more, all in all, for 3 nights - not worth it, in our view. A washing machine would have been a real bonus!

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.
Rocky mountain high
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.
Our accommodations were in Suite #36, which was clean and very well furnished. The kitchen was fully equipped and clean. The deck offered
breathtaking views of the mountains. We also had cable TV with a VCR.
The living room had a cozy, gas fireplace with controls on the wall. The
King-size bed was comfortable and the dresser was spacious and of good
quality. The best part was the private in-room hot-tub, adjacent to the
The staff was friendly and helpful and each suite had it's own parking space.
A gas grill was available for our use as well.
We paid $175.00 per night, which we felt was a reasonable price for the beautiful surroundings and the spacious suite.
We are already planning on returning to Wildwood Inn on our next visit to
Colorado. It is only a quarter-mile from Rocky Mountain National Park and
four miles from Estes Park. The wildlife viewing of Elk, Mule Deer and Bighorn Sheep is incredible! Everyone should experience the Rocky Mountains at some time in their lives. If you decide to do so, we would highly reccommend Wildwood Inn.
We really enjoyed our stay with you last week, it was very, very relaxing. The accomodations were exactly as pictured on your website and maybe even better. We will be back again and again.
Had a great time
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Wildwood Inn. We stayed in #30. The balcony has a beautiful mountain view. It was clean and nicely decorated in rustic mountain decor. The hot tub in the bathroom was wonderful. As in the above review there is a sign in the kitchen that says to leave the kitchen the way you found it. I don't think that means that you actually have to clean the kitchen yourself or any other part of the house. I'm not willing to pay 200$ 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!

Travel Blogs from Estes Park
We drove back towards Denver, heading for the Rocky Mountain National Park this morning. It was a long but beautiful road with dramatic scenery all the way along. We arrived at the Park Entrance in the early afternoon and drove the Trail Ridge Road up into the Park and across to Estes Park our next - and last - stop.

Can I, can I, can I??? 12:45pm (MT): Denver, Colorado. We stop for a refuel and lunch break at a truck stop just east of Denver. Now it's my turn to drive, it's pretty much hold it straight since the roads run due east and watch your speed. I drove about 250 miles today until a refuel stop just off of I-70 in Kansas as we exited south to Dodge City. After giving up the drivers ...
... a headache. I was mildly annoyed as well that we had taken the park and ride as there was loads of car parking space at the lake. They lied to us. We got there and there was a huge queue for the bus back and this mildly annoyed me as well as we clearly weren’t going to be here long. We had a bit of a walk around it, took a few pictures and then stood in the queue back for the bus where we got chatting to a friendly guy who was asking us ...
... E/W) the park and was finished in 1920. It remains how it was then, very steep and precipitous with many hairpin turns. Soon after it was finished Trail Ridge Road was built, which is a lot wider and straighter. Trail Ridge Road is still today the highest continuously paved road in the US. And it is high. Now, Old Fall River Road is a one-way road up into the mountains. People hike up it and bike up it and you can SLOWLY drive up it. Unfortunately, today it was closed ...
... the long horn sheep continued to graze nonchalantly. This was MY excitement for the day – or so I thought!!!!!
We continued on our way – our destination was to be the Stanley Hotel. As many of you know, the Stanley Hotel has a rather chequered history – but is most well known as being the setting for Stephen King’s novel, 'The Shining’. We arrived and booked ourselves in for the midday ...
