    I had a room with a Murphy bed that was okay. Men were working right outside my window so it was busy until 4:30pm or so. Nice creek running through the property. Short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park or the town of Estes.

    I'm staying in one of the upper level rooms with two queens and a kitchenette this Summer. Are there cooking utensils, pans, etc. and what appliances? Also, are there grills or anything to use around the property?

    Would like more information on the Homestead cabin. What is it like? There are not really any photos to look at.

    What is your answer?
    Posting guidelines
    How far upward into mountains? We have a 4 cylinder midsize vehicle. Will that make the climb to the cabin without any trouble? Is there a nearby hospital within reasonable mileage? Is the road to the lodge paved? This is presuming that the cabin is at high altitude. Thank you for your time. Ms. Gentry

    The Ponderosa Lodge is in Estes Park just about 3 or 4 miles from downtown. The road is paved, and there must be a hospital within 5me miles or so.
