We are excited to welcome guests back to Boulder Brook and Estes Park. We are clean and shiny and aside from a bit of outdoor river-related repairs, we are open for business starting Tuesday, October 15. The office is open 9 AM to 7 PM to take reservations and our Buy-Two-Get-One-Free Special is available November 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014. http://www.boulderbrook.com/specials-and-promotions/
It is beautiful here! Rocky Mountain National Park is open. Fall colors are rich and wildlife viewing is exceptional. Just a couple of days ago, a beautiful bull moose was spotted at Estes Lake – a rare and special treat for everyone.
Downtown Estes Park has been cleaned up and most shops and restaurants are open. Of course, some businesses sustained more damage than others and will take longer to re-open but there are many wonderful restaurants and shops to enjoy and explore. Please check out www.VisitEstesPark.com/ColoradoFlood for details on what’s open around town!
It is easier to get here! Boulder Canyon (119 between Boulder and Nederland) is open and shortens travel time. Highways 34 from Loveland and 36 from Boulder/Lyons are still closed but steady progress is being made. CDOT is hoping to have temporary access via these routes by December 1 (keep your fingers crossed!) The Peak-to-Peak Highway is a beautiful drive, particularly with all the aspen groves changing color in the fall.
