In 1909, Enos Mills led the campaign to establish a National Park in the Estes Park area. That same year, the famous Stanley Hotel began construction. Also that same year, a home was built by the Grubb Family on Virginia Drive. That home is now the Bristlecone Inn.
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, yet steps away from downtown Estes Park, the Bristlecone Inn has been restored to its former grandeur. The Inn features craftsman style architecture and modern amenities. A family friendly inn, yet perfect for a romantic getaway.
The guest room on the main level features a private bath, queen sized bed and stunning views of the mountains. Don’t be surprised to look out your window and see elk grazing in the yard! The two rooms upstairs share a luxury bathroom and feature a full sized bed in one room and a queen sized bed in the other.
At the end of your day, relax on our porch or sit in front of the outdoor fireplace. Reminisce about the days adventures. Gather in the great room to play board games or cards. Dining choices are abundant in Estes Park and summer concerts fill the air almost nightly.
Looking for the quintessential log cabin?
Adjacent to the inn is a one bedroom log cabin which sleeps 4 and features a fully equipped kitchen, TV and outdoor patio. The cabin, a former National Park Service Cabin also built in 1909, was moved to its’ present location from Rocky Mountain National in 1966. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into the Wild West with the authentic log interior and exterior, pine cabinets and wood floors. The queen sized bed and sleeper sofa and modern amenities will keep you firmly in the 21st century!
In addition to the guest rooms, the inn also features both outdoor and inside areas for private parties. A perfect spot for family reunions, rehearsal dinners and small weddings. Click on the “Weddings and Events” tab on the website for additional information.
