Pros: Clean rooms, friendly helpful hotel staff, horseback riding was fun, great views, couples massage was nice too. Cons: Our dinners were burnt, the restaurant was empty and the dinners should have been perfect. The chef was very unprofessional in blaming his trainee, a good chef would have double checked any meal leaving his kitchen, especially with us and just...

I took my family here to go horseback riding and we had a wonderful time. The trail was absolutely gorgeous! Our trail guide was friendly and informative. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an inexpensive way to enjoy some family time!

One could not ask for a more beautiful location. Just about 15 minutes outside of the congestion and traffic of Estes Park. During my stay, I went horse back riding, which was wonderful, fishing, hiking, and partook in several other outdoor activities. The staff were all very friendly and quick to make my stay comfortable. My only reservation would be...

Held a large family reunion there and all 80 of us had a wonderful time. So much to see and do. Close to Estes Park but still far enough away to be away from the crowds. Food is also great and very reasonably priced. If you're planning an event, Robin deserves 5 stars!!

Had our daughter's wedding here. Gracious and courteous staff, delicious food, great views and location. Swimming, a lake to paddle around in, hot tub. A magical weekend. Both the cabins and the lodge have a phenomenal view of the Rocky Mountains.

If you are looking for a tranquil, adventurous, mountain family resort...your search stops here! I am in my early 40s, my mother in her early 60s and I have 11 year old twin boys.

The Lodge is outside of 'downtown' Estes Park. This is great if you want to be away from the crowds and tourist traps, but it is a bit of a drive to restaurants, shops, gas, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Luckily the friendly staff showed us a 'short cut' to get to RMNP without having to go through Estes Park...

We spent a wonderful week in one of the cabins in Aspen Lodge. It was my boyfriend and four kids and the cabin, "Trailhead" was plenty big. We enjoyed meeting Ricky the cowboy. My daughter was very scared to ride a horse and he took very good care of her. Brian was very attentive and very friendly during our second...

My husband and I were married here in 2011. Our family and friends said it was the best wedding they had ever been too. Granted we had a carnival. We hope that all the issues we had in the planning process are no longer an issue with the new ownership. They were closed all winter and many people's reservations were...
