Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Running Bear very much. The town house was immaculate, roomy and comfortable. It was the best vacation facility I've ever stayed at.

Central location and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Great location for viewing fireworks on the 4th of July. Watched it from the driveway! Town home is a minute drive from grocery, the Stanley, and downtown but extremely quiet and peaceful for being in town. Property management was quick to respond to any questions or issues (which were minor (resetting the WiFi). Spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Nice large garage to park in. Only one minor downside is no air conditioning, which is only problematic for a month to two out of the year. Other than that, great place to stay in Estes Park and easy access to everything.

Nice property. Lack of AC made cabin HOT!

  • 3 of 5

Overall we liked the property. Plenty of space for our family. The only drawback we had was the lack of air conditioning. We came in a week that was very hot and we could never get the temperature even at night to sleep to a comfortable range. It is close to Estes Park amenities and an easy trip to the Rocky Mountain Park.

Wonderful place, better than its pics!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at "Running Bear in the Rockies". It is conveniently located, very comfortable, and a lot better than even its own pics! Would highly recommend it for groups visiting RMNP or Estes Park!

Very nice home. Everything we needed was provided for us.

  • 5 of 5

We had a quick getaway and this was the perfect place. Very nice property with close proximity to everything we wanted to do. Great people to rent from and the process went very well, from the start to finish. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay close to the Rocky Mountain park and the town of Estes park. Wonderful town and beautiful property.

Luxurious ,beautiful three nights stay in Estes Park over Labor Day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four decided to spend this year's Labor Day weekend in Estes Park , Colorado.

We have previously rented condos/town homes off VRBO since we love the concept of a fully

equipped kitchen,with the option of indoor cooking as well as multiple bedrooms and baths.

Running Bear in the Rockies is a very contemporary, well equipped , nicely designed town home

that can actually accommodate 8 people. Kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with everything you

have at home: dishes, pots and pans, basic supplies, dishwasher, full range....

Bedrooms are spacious and nicely decorated, bathrooms are huge . Owner provides plenty of

towels , bedding supplies, and hand soap. The condo was very clean and fully equipped with

paper towels, dishwasher soap, hand soap and other basic supplies.

Condo is very close to Stanley Hotel and to the Main Street.

We will definitely rent this town home next time we decide to visit Estes Park!

Fun at Estes

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Estes. The townhouse was very nice, clean, well maintained and we plan to stay again in the future.

We would recommend this townhouse for anyone wanting easy access to downtown Estes and the National park.

Thank you for making our stay in the Rockies an unforgettable experience!
