BFF and I stayed here for 2 nights. We rented the Bears Den based on reviews here on TA. Once again, thank you fellow reviewers. Our room was so inviting. Decorated in cabin style with bear accents. Large stone fireplace. Kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook. We didn't, but you surely could. Furniture comfortable for relaxing... More

Very convenient location to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. Rooms are clean, not fancy, but weren't in room much. Ken as the owner is hard to beat. He provided great recommendations! He treats you like you are old friends and they go out of their way to make your stay exceptional.

It's in a great setting, big clean rooms & a smallish footprint of a hotel! And it's less than 10 mins from the entrance to Rocky Mountain! It was perfect!! The river out back is very soothing also in the evening if you sleep with a window cracked open. I'd happily stay here again if we're near Rocky Mountain.

The first time we stayed, we had a room with a kitchen and fireplace. The second time it was just myself and my nearly grown son, so we had two queen beds and mini fridge and microwave (room 102). It was simple but clean, quiet, comfortable, and best of all, we were greeted by a magnificent elk after our long... More

At the last minute the four of us decided to go to Rocky Mountain National forest and we needed a place to stay. I suspect that Deer Crest must have had a cancellation and it was our lucky day! What a gem! Great location away from all of they busy busy in Estes Park, and right outside the entrance to... More

We went to Estes Park for my birthday. We stayed for two nights at the Deer Crest Resort The room was small but comfortable and quiet. It had a little fake fireplace to try and make it cozy.

Family owned, simple, modest resort, was a total delight. Room was clean; I would say average-size; everything worked like it was supposed to. Wonderful babbling brook flowing just steps from the back door. Enjoyed the fridge and microwave. Cushy clean pretty towels and wash cloths. Hi-def quality TV; nice DVD library in the lobby for free borrowing. Only negative: We... More

Very clean room, with daily maid service. Comfortable bed, nice towels. Even though the buildings are old, the rooms are freshly painted, with clean tile, windows, etc. Perfect place to crash after hiking and watching the elk. Patio with chairs outside each room. Fall Creek provides a little "white noise".

Nice, comfortable and clean room. Very charming place right on the river. Very quiet and plenty of privacy. Pleasant staff and free dvd's to borrow. Little fire pit and sitting area to relax as well. Lots of places to relax right along the river.

We enjoyed our stay here, it was fun to be right on the river. The bed was nice and the room well appointed, it even had a DVD player, microwave, fridge and coffee. We enjoyed the rustic setting so close to town.
