From the minute we arrived until we drove away, it felt like home. Staff was great, the condo was roomy and comfy with awesome view and location. We will stay here again and again and...

We just returned from Estes Park and we already want to return and next time we do we'll stay at the Murphy's River Lodge. The staff is amazing - so friendly and accomodating and very knowledgeable about events and restaurants in and around Estes Park. The lodge is about two blocks away from downtown Estes Park - well within walking distance. The indoor pool and hot tub were great. The pool goes to a depth of NINE feet - very unusual for hotel pools.

There were really nice extra touches like a bottle of wine, travel-sized toothpaste and cough drops. Bruce and Loretta were great and we will return as soon as we get the chance.

Our stay at Murphy's River Lodge was wonderful! The owners were extremely gracious and the staff Bruce and Loretta treated us like family. Our room was so comfortable, as well as thoughtfully and beautifully decorated from great furniture, lovely linens, and the flat screen TV. We had everything we needed. The bed and linens were so comfortable it was hard to get used to our own pillows when we returned home!I The lodge couldn't be more conveniently located, just minutes from the quaint stores and restaurants of downtown Estes Park. An added bonus were the majestic elk right there at the lodge! We had forgotten just how beautiful Estes Park is as it has been a few years since our last visit. The breakfast item variety was great and the setting was outstanding with large windows providing a gorgeous view of the mountains. We even had the opportunity to watch the Super Bowl on the large flat screen TV in this same room with the owners, Bruce and Loretta and some of the other guests! Murphy's River Lodge is at the top of our list for lodging in the Estes Park area. We'll be back!!! Barbara and Scott S.

Bruce and Loretta were great. From the time we checked in to check out. We stayed 2 nights in the new condos. Full size fridge, full oven, microwave, dishwasher, king size bed, DVD player, flat screen TV etc. Our room was right on Fall River which was covered in snow! We could still hear the water in the river running even though it's winter and there isn't much runoff this time of year...still it's nice to listen to running water. As other reviews said it's a very short walk to downtown Estes. Bruce was there for breakfast every morning for neighborly conversation. We felt like we were a part of their family. Everyday we saw Elk all over the property. One morning an Elk walked right through the parking lot. They have an indoor pool and a hot tub. In the breakfast loft they have a huge wall mounted flatscreen...it's huge! They also have puzzles and board games for families. Nice place and we will be going back in spring or fall.
