The views were magnificent -- out of the living room and bedroom windows were spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, and we saw wildlife every morning and evening on the premises. I was told that the prime time to visit the area is summer. I would love to do so, but I'd like to add that the views are splendid in the winter and the trails are great in the snow.

Rocky Mountain National Park: The entrance to RMNP is very close to Rams Horn Village. Little note: It cost us $15 per car to get in RMNP. However, the ticket/receipt doesn't expire until seven days. So, you are able to visit RMNP as much as you want during those seven days.
The Trail Ridge Road: This was absolutely a breathtaking trip, literally!! It was with gorgeous views, but whew!! The wind was something else!! A little advice: definitely take a jacket and don't worry about fixing your hair that day. And men, don't wear your hats/caps. You will lose them to the mountains!! It was so cold and windy. But the views, oh, it was definitely worth the trip up to the top. We even hurried up inside their trading post/snack bar to have some hot chocolate.
Aerial Tramway:The kids loved this!! You get to ride up in a tram car to the top of Prospect Mountain, enjoying the panoramic views of Long's Peak. You are allowed to stay up there all day or return on the tram car whenever you wish. We took up some hiking and feeding the little chipmunks. The chipmunks were so friendly and come right up to you.
Putt-Putt-"Ride the Kart": We did this two different times. They had water bumper boats, go-karts, arcade, two different putt-putt courses, batting cages, water sport game and a Subway right there!! It was definitely fun, challenging, and cheap!!
Downtown Estes Park: Be aware!! You will spend your money in these shops! It is so irresistible, you just can't help yourself. If you want a custom made t-shirt, go to Discount Shirt Savers. We were able to pick out the color and style of the t-shirt and then pick a design that we wanted on our shirt. Definitely our money's worth. Don't forget to visit the Riverwalk while you are in Downtown Estes Park.
Best Things About the Resort:Upon first seeing Rams Horn Village Resort, it was very small, but truly beautiful. The grounds and units were kept up very nice. Our check-in was with ease and took only five minutes to reach the front doors of our "home" away from home.
As we stepped inside our stand alone Peak Unit# 25, our first impression was that it was small. Once we took a look around, the unit became very appealing. Their decorations and furnishings were tastefully done.
Peak Units are 900 sq. ft. They have one full bath and one three quarter bath. The second bathroom only has a stand up shower with no tub. For those of you who needs two full baths, you should try requesting the Divide Units, which are duplexes.
If you want privacy, you will definitely like the Peak Units. They are situated by themselves with a nice front and back porch. Since we had two teenagers with us, we chose the Peak Units. We didn't want to bother anyone. If we ever have the opportunity to visit Rams Horn again, we would definitely choose the Divide Units. Yes, they are duplexes, but they are very spacious and well laid out. Plus, these units had two full baths in them.
Rams Horn Village does not have many amenities. One swimming pool and three hot tubs located right on the resort. Our teenagers enjoyed the pool and hot tub numerous of times. One word of assurance. No matter where you are located at the resort, it is all within walking distance of the clubhouse, pool, playground and hot tubs. Believe me, you'll want to walk around and enjoy the clean mountain fresh air.
They also have a fitness center/tanning salon there. We did not have the chance to visit this. Also, this and as well as the Check-In Registration desk, it closes at 8pm. The Clubhouse is open until 6pm. We were able to check out some videos, which were free. That was also a plus.
Overall, our visit to Estes Park, Colorado and Rams Horn Village Resort was very, very pleasant. We had a great time and definitely would love to visit them again.
Resort Experience:Imagine waking up in the mornings, walking out on the back deck, seeing mountains all around you. Imagine seeing deer walking right up to your unit eating gracefully and fearlessly.
Imagine nature at its very best. Welcome to Ram's Horn Village in beautiful Estes Park, CO.

Each unit has a well stocked kitchen, right down to a crock pot so that you can eat dinner at home and spend the day hiking. The units have gas fireplaces and small but comfortable living rooms. Nearly every window features a view of the surrounding mountain range.
The pool is outdoors and only open in the summer. The hottubs--there are 3--are open all year and are inviting after a hike in the mountains or a day of horseback riding.
The clubhouse has a free lending library of books, VCR tapes and games. In the winter you will find sleds to take out to the slopes.
There is a small playground onsite.
A new fitness room has been added to the 2nd story of the clubhouse. If you make it up the stairs in the high altitude, you can workout with a bicycle, a stairmaster and a treadmill. Small, but really, wouldn't you rather take your hike while smelling pine needles??
The units are either duplex style or free standing single units, built in the style of a mountain cabin. They are well built and I have rarely heard anything from the next door neighbor. Unlike many timeshares, there is no construction going on: the peace and quiet of the resort and the beautiful views of Rocky Mountain National Park are some of the best selling points for the resort.
The staff is very friendly and always willing to help with any questions vistors have about the area.
