My family and I stayed at the Little Bear Lodge and had one of the most fantastic vacations possible. Not only does this house have fantastic mountain views, but is in perfect walking distance to shopping and dining in Estes Park. On the back side of the house are large windows that allow for the aforementioned amazing view. Everyone morning a herd of deer walked behind the house, and our family had an amazing vantage point to watch them wander by! At night, the twinkle of downtown lights are visible but at no time did we ever feel crowded by the proximity to downtown. This house is perfect for one family, and can easily accommodate two. There are also two really cool gas fireplaces that offer a unique gathering point. This was seriously the best place to end a day of hiking or shopping and I cannot wait to go back!Camille B.
