  1. We are going to Estes Park this summer. Where did you stay? Is the Stanley worth it? We are only going to be there for a day and 1/2.

    • We did stay at The Stanley! Definitely worth it. The property is amazing with phenomenal views of Rocky Mountain National Park. I would recommend requesting a room with a view on a higher floor. There is a great big porch that runs along the front of the hotel. So nice for lazy summer afternoons. The food was delicious and there is a great patio in the back for al fresco dining. We didn’t try this, but they also offer “Haunted Tours” if that is something that might interest you.
      We also enjoyed a long walk (or you could take a bike ride) along Lake Estes. It is a beautiful place for an impromptu picnic. Have a great trip!
