Flowing water by the lodges was soothing and relaxing
The rooms smelled musty and moldy
Extremely charming and convenient to Estes park and Rocky Mountain NP. We loved being on Fall River, and enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit on site. Staff went over and above welcoming us and providing local recommendations for food and things to do. We will definitely be back.
Close to the road, but this made for convenient and quick access to town and the Park. Couldn't hear much road noise over the sounds of Fall River.
Beautiful location, cozy room, convenient to get to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.
Air conditioning was off already and it was HOT in our room. The porch connects to everyone else's on our floor, and the loud jerks next door decided to smoke marijuana, so we couldn't even leave the windows open.
This place is exactly what we expected! It's nestled right by a beautiful creek & just a short distance to RMNP! We were a bit surprised that the main road was so close, but it ended up being a huge perk because of easy access! The sound of the creek drowned out the noise from the road. Sitting on the deck listening to the creek & smelling the pine was pure bliss. Oh & the comforter & sheets were AMAZING - even far better than any 4-5 star hotel - the BED was super comfy too!
Close to the road, but ended up being a good thing!
With its prime location on the banks of Falls River in Estes Park, Colorado, The Ponderosa Lodge offers a relaxing and exciting getaway. It's situated right on the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, so guests who stay are only minutes from breathtaking views, nature hiking, and many other activities. The hotel offers either rooms in the main lodge, where guests can hear the relaxing rush of water from the river, as well as cabins dotted throughout the forest, which offer a bit more privacy.
Each room at The Ponderosa Lodge offers rustic charm and comfortable amenities. Inside the lodge is a library and fireplaces, where guests can sit and read to unwind. The rooms and cabins feature kitchenettes, so snacking and preparing meals is easy. There's a guest computer, so even though guests are tucked away in the forest, they can still stay connected for business or to keep in touch with family.
For those guests who prefer the adventures of the outdoors, there is a river stocked with trout, and there are outdoor grills and fire pits for roasting marshmallows or cooking camp fare. Plus, there's plenty of wildlife around the property. Additionally, the nearby hiking trails that wind through the national park are very close by.
The Ponderosa Lodge is an environmentally friendly hotel. As the property is located right next to Rocky Mountain National Park, the staff make an effort to lower their ecological footprint. Guests will find recycling bins in each room, so that trash can be properly disposed of, and the cleaning staff use environmentally friendly cleaning products.
