Boulder Brook on Fall River
Travel Blogs from Estes Park
We checked out of the Stanley this morning after a ghostless night. I did wake up at 3:45 and stuck the camera out my door and took a picture but no ghosts. Jym woke up early and did some rock climbing behind the hotel. I did not agree with that but hey what could happen? I mean he could plummet to his death…Safe and alive we checked out and …
... All of us took naps for about an hour and when we got up Larry had a headache too.
I started supper because Erin's friend Kerry and her husband Andre were coming to eat with us. Erin worked with Kerry at Expedia until Andre got transferred to Denver a year ago. I made Pizza Casserole and salad. They arrived early at 5:20 because they weren't sure how long it would take to get here on Labor Day Weekend. Kerry made lemon bars ...
... a couple of hundred yards from the end of the snowbound trails I managed to get apex-over-base and slid off the trail. It all get a bit Benny Hill as the more I tried to get up the more I slide off the track until I ended up half way down the slope laughing ridiculously to myself.
After the Cub lake route I travelled up to the head of the park road to Bear Lake to do a few short trails up there. All were snowbound but it was mostly packed down so I only ...
... started the trek up the Old Fall River Road. We saw the Alluvial Fan (an area that was flooded many years ago). Gorgeous waterfall and short hike to see it all. There are 2 parking areas. I think we did the East but the West might be a shorter hike. We also got some good shots from high on the ridge. We stopped at the visitor center at the top and it was quite nice and large and had a café but I think its run by Xanterra which I am not a huge fan of. ...
... and into the hostel. I was feeling a little apathetic, a little lazy, and didn't want to be "that guy" at the hostel that tries to hit on every girl at the hostel, so I just sat contently and continued to play. A few minutes later, she appeared came out to the balcony. I simply said hello and continued playing. She listened for a few moments and then asked, "So is this your first time as the Hostel De Terri?" I chuckled a bit and told her how I had helped start ...

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
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.
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!
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.
