Reasonable cost for this area, it is an older property with tiny bathroom but the room was clean with fridge. We like the balcony room with mountain views... Worth a bit extra money.
Room had fridge but no coffee maker. Coffee offered in lobby which was in a separate building from where we stayed. No complimentary breakfast, which would be nice.
It's value & setting (& room with a view) will give this a 4 star rating from me.

8:30 AM - Enter Wyoming.
We woke today to snow! It was clearly evident from our room that a light dusting of snow had fallen on the foothills of the mountains, just how much up top we didn't know.

It was cold and refreshing and spotting some elk grazing by the lake was a great way to discovery RMNP. It was nice, but bloody cold, the kind of cold that …
Not to be outdone, again using Butler maps we quickly picked out a couple of great rides to lead us North and up into Boulder. The ride was quite chilly to begin with as we slowly climbed our way up to Leadville (elev 10,200'). The bikes handled the roads really well and we strapped the GoPro Hero camera to Cliffy for a change and he became the film director. Some hilarity ensued as he got the on/off record button ...
... Rocky Mountain National Park in only half an hour. The chalet was beautiful, right next to a small river where we got our first fly-fishing initiation from Eric. While we were fishing, we've seen a black bear, wandering along the riverside. Impressive!
Monday we did a wonderful hike through the national park. The weather was sunny and warm, and we've only had one small shower in between. We were there in the perfect season, since the leafs of the aspen ...
