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.

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 …
... and hospitality of this gigantic country. I will work on posting pictures from all over my trip, and recording their individual stories as captions. In the mean time, I'm not sure what else to write about... :) I will be exploring the national parks of Colorado and Utah over the next week, seeing a friend in Park City, and then heading back to Oregon! If anyone has a question for me about the trip, I'm happy to answer! Thank you for reading!
... to do the next day. We agreed we wanted to see Dream Lake, and Emerald Lake which were on the same path and 1.8 miles one way. We figured that it would take at least 3 hours to do the hike, and we would have to allow for the extra time for the shuttle, so we decided on spending two nights at the park. We filled out the fee envelope, and took it up. We decided that we wanted to have a fire, and Gabe wasn’t sure if we had enough wood, so he went back up to the ...
