Very well appointed with lots of space. Convenient location with quick access to groceries and town

Worked very well for our family of 6. The kitchen was well stocked, 2-car garage was nice, and we had a view of the mountain peaks.

Great place!

The set up was perfect for our family requirements as we needed a handicap accessible place. There were no stairs to get in and out of the condo and a master bed/bath (with walk-in shower) as well as the kitchen, dining room and living room were all on the main floor. Nice wide hallways and doorways were helpful too.
Accommodations were comfortable, 2 large couches, big dining room table, everything we needed in the kitchen.
Location was very convenient, short walk to Lake Estes and less than a mile to Safeway.
Estes Park Central was very helpful in negotiating a 2-night stay during peak period (when 3-night stay was required).
We would definitely stay there again!

Central location and quiet

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.

Wonderful place, better than its pics!

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!

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!

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!
