It gets windy frequently in Estes Park and the wind blew out the pilot light in the fireplace. I told a staff person at the front desk and he was in...

Looking for a nice romantic night away with the wifey without breaking the bank I stumbled on to the Appenzell Inn. It's not the fanciest or biggest hotel but has nice reasonable rooms. It has decent sized indoor pool with small outdoor hot tub. They provide towels. The other thing I liked was a nice BBQ area with tables for...
