Overview of Estes Park Bed and Breakfast

Overview  of Estes Park Bed and Breakfasts

To start our tour through Estes Park accommodation, let’s first look at the general features of Bed and Breakfasts here! 

One of the best features of Estes Park Bed and Breakfasts as opposed to motel accommodation or other lodging options are the uniquely decorated rooms.

Your rooms will tend to feel more homely, and those that nestle into the mountain areas will be extra cozy. This can include reading nooks for snow days, fireplaces, and family living areas. 

The creative energy of the area often results in themed decor in B’n’Bs! 

As for hospitality, the service is more personalized and attentive at Bed and Breakfasts. There are fewer guests at B’n’B’s, so you will get to know your host better and receive more personal attention. 

Breakfast is hard to look past when considering a bed and breakfast; after all, it’s half of the deal! 

Complimentary breakfast is served each morning at B’n’Bs. The Estes Park community is very collaborative: you’ll likely enjoy locally sourced specialties or homemade treats for your morning meal.

If you have dietary requirements, most hosts will be able to accommodate this with advanced notice. Amenities vary with your choice, but this often includes: 

  • Complimentary soaps, shampoos and other toiletries
  • Parking areas for guests 
  • Towels, slippers, and bathrobes 
  • Televisions or Smart Televisions in some cases 
  • Free WiFi(guests only).

The Romantic Riversong Inn truly has so much to offer. The complimentary breakfast is exceptional, as are the grounds where the BnB is situated.

I should also mention the private mountain trail to Gianttrack Mountain: If you are all about the dramatic moments, then it is a tradition to share a kiss at each bench along this trail – a true Estes Park right of passage! 

The Big Thompson River nearby offers plentiful fishing opportunities as well. If this all sounds like your cup of Colorado, the Romantic Riversong grounds also accommodate small weddings, which you can find out more about here.

The Inn is not far from any of Estes Park’s main attractions – so if you have personal transport or just a pair of legs, then walking trails, rock climbing, and Estes Lake are a stone’s throw away!

Kids will also enjoy relaxing at the accommodation, swimming in the pool, and making s’mores.
