Value
The Ponderosa Lodge is nestled right up on the banks of charming Fall River and has one of the best locations in Estes Park. Located in a small valley with Aspen trees and gorgeous views, you'll feel like you're in a secluded mountain getaway, and yet the shops and dining of Estes Park are only 5 minutes in one direction while the less crowded back entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is 5 minutes in the other. Amenities include a hot tub, outdoor barbecue, children's playground, inviting riverside lawn and patio, warm cookies upon arrival, and of course, free WiFi. All rooms contain a gas or electric fireplace, coffee maker, and microwave, some contain kitchenettes. Larger groups can book multiple rooms with adjoining doors. If we are booked, please consider our sister property the 4 Seasons Inn on Fall River!

I needed a quiet and relaxing place to do some work for the weekend, and am so glad I chose Ponderosa Lodge. Darrell takes great care in treating their guests to the most carefree (and informed) experience. My little room was perfect for my needs, and I was able to enjoy the sound of the river, just outside, and for my entire stay!

Enjoyed the stay. Liked the proprietor (and Aspen the dog who is super chill [in case you don't like dogs]). Clean. Fridge, sink, dishes, and table for four. Balcony by the stream. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed one night and enjoyed it. The room was cozy and warm. Relaxing to hear the creek at night. The area was clean and provided amenities that were not the normal generic products, i.e. shampoo and body wash. First time stay and it was not disappointing. The staff and fur baby, Aspen, were pleasant and accommodating.

Friendly staff, beautiful location, relaxing. I enjoyed the stroll around the area. You will see many peaceful elks even from your balcony. Clean rooms. Close to all Estes attractions. You receive a free bottle of wine if you book directly on their website.

The Ponderosa Lodge is situated just by the Fall River which adds a relaxing ambiance to our stay. Great views, it seems like you're inside the forest but the shops, restaurants are just 5-10 mins. away. It's also near the famous Stanley Hotel from The Shining and it's a very convenient location from the Rocky Mountain National Park. We did a lot of hiking and staying at Ponderosa Lodge is very convenient. We enjoyed the hot tub after hours of hiking and amenities are great. I love that every room has fireplace so you can be warm and cozy while enjoying your privacy. It's a simple lodge but has all you need. Also, I commend having a full pot of coffee in our room. Other lodge and hotels only have single serve coffee machine. Will definitely be back here.
