Watch a mountain sunset

Sunsets in the Rockies will always be there, no matter what.

Most of our cabins and cottages offer spacious decks with mountain views, perfect for admiring the sunset. It is the perfect way to end the day.

YMCA of the Rockies

Like Rocky Mountain National Park, the YMCA of the Rockies has plans for a phased re-opening – just in time for summer.

All outdoor activities will require face masks and no groups larger than 10 people.

Fishing in Estes Park

A great outdoor activity to enjoy this summer and still maintain social distancing is fishing. From the Big Thompson River to Fall River, Estes Park and the surrounding area offer some of the best fishing in the state. Get outdoors and discover our favorite places to fly fish in Estes Park.

Or fish from right outside your front door when you stay at Rocky Mountain Resorts. The cabins of Fawn Valley Inn sit on the banks of Fall River, offering a premium location for fishing, mountain views, and wildlife watching.

Sit back and relax at Rocky Mountain Resorts

One of our favorite things to do in Estes Park while social distancing is simply sitting back and relaxing with the sights and sounds of Mother Nature around you. And the best place to do just that is at our vacation rentals at Rocky Mountain Resorts.
