I can't speak for the hotel side, but my husband and I scheduled an all-day trail ride during our honeymoon earlier this month. We could not have been happier! Trevor was so accommodating and made the whole experience very enjoyable for us. I highly recommend their stables if you are in the Estes Park area.

So, to set this up, we just did an overnight at the Dao House; quick little family get away. We were housed in the main building on the lower levels. I was hesitant to come here, but it was a last minute option for us. It turned out to work out very well. I ready the review of it being...

Visited the stable for a trail ride. Schedule worked such that I was able to join a couple. So my solo ride did not work as one up on the horse turned out to be four of us on horses. A very nice two hour ride lots of info, good view. I would rate the operation as the best found...

Far from town and totally silent with great views of the mountains. Very friendly staff. Also run down, breakfast like a chain motel. The evening we arrived the staff were sitting around with the owner in the lobby having a meaning of life conversation that made us feel like we were intruding every time we went in or out.

Fantastic facilities in a very quiet surrounding. Friendly staff . Gr8 drives and animal viewings in the surroundings make it a truly irresistable place to take a break. Good food, easy check in and check out , very comfortable room and bed affordable.

I stayed here with 2 other friends for 4 nights in one of the cabins on the property. I was dismayed to find that the grounds (including drives, parking, and cabin exteriors) were in bad shape still from the flood of 2013. I had conversations with staff, and while I appreciate that there is a lot of work to do,...

We stayed 2 nights after a business meeting and appreciated the quiet location out of town. The room was on 1 st floor and average. The bed was good and I had no complaint about the shower. There was a small table and upright chairs but no chair to sit other than the bed. Tv reception not so good. They...

Comfy beds with great views! Stables with well kept horses. So glad to stay here a bit out of town, away from crowds. A peaceful, welcoming atmosphere. Staff was great!!! Enjoyed the Organic coffee and the basic breakfast which was complimentary. We would love to stay here again.

We attended a rehearsal dinner here over the weekend. The food was a disaster! It was a "Rio" theme with chicken and flank steak entrees on a buffet line. The flank steak was cold and rubbery. The chicken was dry and the mango salsa couldn't help that fact. A "red" rice was served and it was gummy. Frankly, I would...

It was an enjoyable experience overall but more thanks to its location. The front desk staff was friendly but the hotel itself had an odd vibe with a funky smell. Fake plastic logs all over the walls and philosophic quotes everywhere gave the feeling they were trying too hard to achieve an atmosphere of "hippy mountain lodge." There were spider...
