When choosing your Estes Park lodging, there are plenty of things to consider including location, hotel amenities, experience, what type of vacation you are looking for, and so much more. Consider these following tips for choosing lodging in Estes Park as you begin to plan your vacation.


Estes Park is a small mountain town located near the east entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and provides easy access to many other outdoor activities in the local area. It also boasts an eclectic downtown with many shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Finding a place that is nicely situated near both is ideal. Enjoy your days at RMNP and spend your evenings wining and dining in downtown – all of this is just a few minutes away when you book your stay at one of our rentals at Rocky Mountain Resort.

Estes Park is in the heart of the Rockies, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, scenic views, and an abundance of wildlife. One of the best ways to experience all the beauty Estes Park has to offer, book your Estes Park lodging at Rocky Mountain Resorts. We offer cabins, cottages, chalets, and vacation rental homes all set within the pristine landscape of the Rockies. Choose from cabins by the river or mountain chalets with scenic views. Our property rentals are just minutes away from both RMNP and downtown Estes Park, making us an ideal location for exploring both in one day.


You want to make sure your accommodations feel like a home away from home. Finding a hotel with the right amenities can help create the experience you are looking for on your vacation. If you want to relax, find a hotel with plush linens and comfortable surroundings. Or, if you like breakfast in bed, maybe a hotel with complimentary breakfast is important to you. Maybe you like to cook your own meals, finding accommodations with a full kitchen would be important to you.

At Rocky Mountain Resorts we offer a wide variety of amenities to make your stay feel like your home away from home. Most of our rentals offer the following amenities:

  • Full kitchen, perfect for meals in
  • Outdoor decks or patio space
  • Private hot tubs
  • Jetted tubs
  • Gas or wood fireplace
  • Seasonal pool
  • Washer/dryer
  • Dog friendly


To help budget for your vacation, look for Estes Park lodging specials. Most will offer off-season discounted rates in the winter and spring. Summer (mostly summer) and fall tend to be busier in Estes Park, so hotel rates tend to be higher. At Rocky Mountain Resorts we offer monthly specials throughout the entire year! So, always be sure to check our website for the most current discount.
