Travel Blogs from Estes Park
... will be an early night again with the alarm scheduled to wake us at 5. I am a little nervous\anxious for the marathon which is normal for me the night before it is a huge under taking and I know what is ahead of me. I am hopeful that I will get some rest tonight. Les seems relatively at east with his pending 21Km run through the hills of Estes I am sure we will both be happy once we cross the finish line.
End day ten. ...
... long. It looked like it had been there for eons! The barbers inside were probably in their late 70s or early 80s and were true gentlemen. The barber chairs were old and authentic. I had to stay and watch the haircut, as it fascinated me, but I realise that this was probably against the rules. In the chair beside Rod a man from California was having his weekly haircut. We found out that this man was to be the rodeo announcer for the Rooftop Rodeo ...
... up on my face too. Lovely. I checked into The Stanley at about 2 and let me just say this is one thing I have so looked forward to. It is the hotel where Stephen King wrote the Shining and its haunted and I managed to get one night and was so excited. They recommended an urgent care facility right in town near the hotel…5 minute drive down the road. In addition to my heath issues I was now also faced with a hotel issue. I did not book ...
... north to the 80. We weren't sure about driving through the rocky mts in a downpour with flash flood warnings, and a leaky money pit. It was looking grim. We decided to press on. The rocky mts were fantastic. We drove the rv up over the highest pass at 12000 ft. Everybody got out at the summit and there was a huge meadow with blooming flowers. The kids just ran through the meadow to stretch their legs and blow off some steam. We went to the visitor center ...
... lakes such as Nymph, Dream, Emerald and Bear. You can also get a look at the Tyndall glacier. The drive in was amazing, we went through typical alpine landscape and ignored all the "car park full" signs.
We arrived at Bear Lake trailhead to be told by a ranger on entry we must park in an assigned parking spot, not stop or wait, or risk being towed. Within the car park there were two other rangers ensuring you either parked legally or your wheels were moving.

Historical Traveler Reviews Boulder Brook on Fall River Estes Park
I wanted to take my fiancee to Estes Park to scout out potential sites for our upcoming wedding. I dealt with Linda, an extremely helpful and very friendly individual! She made all of the arrangements and booked an extra surprise package for my fiancee. We booked the Antlers Suite.
It was beautifully appointed. Everything was spotless. There were 2 televisions with VCR and one had a DVD player. There was a fireplace complete with wood and kindling. All appliances were furnished. The views from our balcony were breathtaking and the Fall River flowed right outside our windows. We had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 days and 2 nights and are looking forward to our next stay! Tim Niederkorn
Right on the river
We just got back from a fabulous trip to Rocky Mountain National Park ... and we enjoyed our stay at Boulder Brook very much. When we arrived, it was obvious that both the front and back decks had been recently swept, the interior had been thoroughly cleaned, and the partial kitchen and bathroom sparkled.
We especially enjoyed the Fall River, not 12 feet from the back deck, rippling over rocks ... and the smell of the pines. We cracked our windows and enjoyed the spa tub, while listening to the falls and watching the stars. It was quite romantic.
The hotel staff that we met were more than accomodating, and seemed eager to help us in any way necessary. We were able to borrow videos from the hotel's collection for our entire stay and the hotel provided aromatherapy products to use in the spa.
It was a great value, we enjoyed our stay immensely, and we will definitely go back. Therefore, we've rated this one 4 stars.
This has been the most relaxing, peaceful place we have ever stayed!

Best anniversary yet!
I would like to take the time to thank Boulder Brook for the wonderful accomodation. My wife and I agreed that this was our best anniversary yet. The beautiful facility and wonderful staff contributed greatly. You can be assured that we are going to be regulars at Boulder Brook. We will also recommend you to all. Thank you again. We look forward to our next trip. Tony G.
Boulder Brook is not all that
I had planned a great vacation and had all the plans postponed due to a happy event...my wife was pregant...unfortunatley the altitude was not conpatible with Colorado. I shared this new with the manager of the Boulder Brook and was promptly told..."all deposits are non-refundable"...needless to say...i wouldnt call them family friendly.
A Rare Treat!
It is seldom you come to a place and it is BETTERthan you expected! Thanks Boulder Brook! Ricky &Julie
Boulder Brook is AWESOME
This was the best! The suite was beautifully decorated,the staff was superior in every way, and the sceneryjust can't be beat. We will be back soon!!! Thank youBoulder Brook.
Boulder Brook Way Overated!
Luxurious?????? NO WAY!!!! Unless you like cob webs on the walls....nasty grout...dirty pans when you arrive.......dirty coffe filter in the coffee pot when you arrive you name it ......this place is way overrated!!! And the Innkeeper is one of the rudest people I have even spoken to when I called about these issues..
WE stayed in one of the rooms with the spa in it. What luxury, romantic and relaxing. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful day as we began our new life together. It was so easy to make the reservation, they are so helpful, the room so cozy, fireplace, spa so relaxing and and the area so senic! I am getting ready to make our reservation for our first anniversary! It is just minutes from Denver, easy to get to yet the setting makes you feel miles from anyone, secluded and private. Thanks Boulder Brook!
Boulder Brook Review
My husband and I honeymooned @ Boulder Brook in Estes Park. We were very pleased w/ our experience there. We rented a jacuzzi suite and were impressed w/ all of the attention to detail in the room. We also liked that the main office will let you borrow movies to watch in your room. They had a pretty good selection of movies. There are stereo's in the suites so you can bring your favorite cd's to listen to. We like to go there in October to hear the elk bugle. At times we've actually had elk right outside our back door. A great time to go is in the winter. The suite rates are lower, and it's nice to pamper yourself. Turn on the fireplace sit in the jacuzzi(which is enclosed by windows facing fall river) and drink champane. There was a wonderful kitchen in our room w/ everything we could have possibly needed. Oh, and the shower was pretty cool also. It was a double headed shower for two, with a bench in it. We love Boulder Brook and will continue to go back because of their wonderful service and great suites.
