          The Discovery Lodge is walking distance to Lake Estes Trail, with a nice view of the lake and the Mountains. We had a very clean room, comfortable bed, and the registration desk staff was very friendly and helpful! We would definitely go there again!

          We stayed two nights at discovery lodge which is situated within a 10-15 minute maximum walk to downtown. Lovely grounds adjacent to the golf course where you can see the elk early morning. Our room was clean and spacious. Good value for money.

          Some of our larger suites have microwaves but most of our standard rooms do not. Every room does have a fridge and there's a microwave in the lobby you may use. Leslie

          Is there AC in the Otis House? If not, are there box fans provided?

          There is no A/C and we can make sure there are box fans! Typically, we open all windows at night as the mountain air is very cool and refreshing and then close them in the AM. I'll make sure we have fans! Leslie
