I've stayed here a number of times over the last few years for business (even when it was called Aspen Lodge). I always enjoy the view of Long's Peak in front of the lodge and the nice, quiet rustic view of the cabins. I've stayed in both the standalone cabins and the main lodge rooms. The cabins are very nice...

We took a sleigh ride here with our family, and it was terrific! We went through the snowy woods to a campfire set up with hot chocolate and marshmallows to roast plus tons of beautiful pristine snow to play in. It was a big hit with our family. The entire staff was so nice and it was easy to book...

Our overnight stay at the Dao House was charming, romantic, and thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were caring and attentive to all the small details that, taken together, created an unforgettable experience. The majestic views of Longs Peak are remarkable—perhaps the best views from any hotel/lodge in the Estes Park area (which is saying a lot). We bought a romantic Valentine's...

I can't speak for the hotel side, but my husband and I scheduled an all-day trail ride during our honeymoon earlier this month. We could not have been happier! Trevor was so accommodating and made the whole experience very enjoyable for us. I highly recommend their stables if you are in the Estes Park area.

So, to set this up, we just did an overnight at the Dao House; quick little family get away. We were housed in the main building on the lower levels. I was hesitant to come here, but it was a last minute option for us. It turned out to work out very well. I ready the review of it being...

Visited the stable for a trail ride. Schedule worked such that I was able to join a couple. So my solo ride did not work as one up on the horse turned out to be four of us on horses. A very nice two hour ride lots of info, good view. I would rate the operation as the best found...

Far from town and totally silent with great views of the mountains. Very friendly staff. Also run down, breakfast like a chain motel. The evening we arrived the staff were sitting around with the owner in the lobby having a meaning of life conversation that made us feel like we were intruding every time we went in or out.

Fantastic facilities in a very quiet surrounding. Friendly staff . Gr8 drives and animal viewings in the surroundings make it a truly irresistable place to take a break. Good food, easy check in and check out , very comfortable room and bed affordable.

I stayed here with 2 other friends for 4 nights in one of the cabins on the property. I was dismayed to find that the grounds (including drives, parking, and cabin exteriors) were in bad shape still from the flood of 2013. I had conversations with staff, and while I appreciate that there is a lot of work to do,...

We stayed 2 nights after a business meeting and appreciated the quiet location out of town. The room was on 1 st floor and average. The bed was good and I had no complaint about the shower. There was a small table and upright chairs but no chair to sit other than the bed. Tv reception not so good. They...
