Estes Park Cabins

Why can't I find a place for just one night in Estes Park?

Elk at Castle Mountain Lodge

We see lots of Lodging Availability Request Forms for visitors looking for a one night stay in Estes Park during summer.  Frustrated to find that most lodges have a 3 night minimum stay during high season (summer & early fall), what options do visitors have?  Here are some ideas:

Valentine's Day Estes Park Romantic Getaway

With Valentine’s Day coming up, our featured Lodge of the Month is the epitome of  ‘Romantic Getaway’ - a resort offering  upscale spacious cabins, vacation homes, suites, rooms,  or condos on Fall River with fishing access, or up next to the mountains with expansive views into Rocky Mountain National Park.  Wildwood Inn is located just down the road from the Fall River Entrance station and Visitor Center and provides easy access to Trail Ridge Road through Horseshoe Meadows.


Cabin of the Month - River Spruce Cabins

Our featured lodge this month is River Spruce Cabins, a nostalgic cabin resort in Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park where you can relax, reflect on your life, and renew your soul.

Cabin of the Month - Braeside Cabin

Our featured lodge this month is Braeside Cabin, "the best little guest house in Estes."  Located 3 miles from the south entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park,  it is within walking distance to YMCA and a great Italian dinner at Dunraven Inn.

Rock n' River Cabins on the Pond

A recent visitor to the Rock n’ River Resort said, “I’ve been driving past your covered, wooden bridge on Hwy 36 for years, but never stopped in.  I’m so glad I know this is here!”

Lodge of the Month - Castle Mountain Lodge

Our featured lodge this month is Castle Mountain Lodge on Fall River. CML, as it's known by its repeat guests, is famous for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere and well-kept grounds.  Wildlife frequently wanders through CML's property, and you can either fish or pull up a chair and relax along the river.

Pet Friendly?


What is the real meaning of "Pet Friendly"? Will a lodging pet policy that essentially means "your dog can sleep overnight in your room, but you can't leave him alone there when you go out" be what you need for your vacation in Estes Park?

Tips for Finding Last Minute Summer Lodging in Estes Park

With 3 million visitors each year, summers are busy around Rocky Mountain National Park. Many families return year after year because it’s such a special place, and book their lodging a year in advance.

If you find yourself wanting to put together a last minute summer visit to the mountains, you might discover it’s not so easy to find a place to stay because many lodges are already booked during the “high” season, especially during July and August.
