8/10 Very good

Great if you know what to expect.
This was a nice relaxing place to stay. Just know what to expect. There is no air conditioning, no tv’s and very limited Wi-Fi. This is very good or very bad depending upon your expectations. We knew this going in, but heard others complaining, which we rolled our eyes at. The rooms were a bit hot at night, but if you crack your windows during the day, it helps tremendously. The staff was very friendly and the views are terrific! It was an overall positive experience.

Amazing little retreat away from the bustle of downtown Estes. The staff is amazing, friendly, and helpful. The setting is spectacular! The 24-hour tea station was my favorite feature.
