This was a very convenient location for a wedding we attended at black canyon inn. It was also very close to the downtown.

We had a great stay in Estes Park! The house was very clean and comfortable, perfect for our family of four. We were 4 miles from one entrance of Rocky Mountain NP which was our reason for visiting. We were walking distance to town where there are plenty of shops, restaurants, etc. We had plenty of resources to cook at the house and enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains. We also enjoyed a couple of meals out as well. We absolutely loved the park and hope to come back and stay here again!

The location can't be beat. The cabin was immaculate. (It was the cleanest rental we've been in, and that's important to us.) We loved the kitchen, dining, and living room areas.

We were there over 3 weeks, and Ponderosa Realty was great to work with. We needed a few things, and they were delivered the next day.

The master bedroom bed had a depression on the side I slept on. Ponderosa was going to talk to the owner about it, but I told them not to make any changes while we there. I suspect the issue is taken care of.

The outdoor seating area is very, very nice. However, it is not connected to the barbecuing area. That area is outside the laundry room. The picnic table picture included with the cabin pictures is attached to the building below the cabin. If the weather were amenable to barbecuing, we wouldn't have because of the awkward logistics.

Nice location, can get there without using main road through town. Walkable. Easy access to RMNP and town

The house is clean and very convenient to downtown Estes Park and RMNP entrances. We saw elk and deer in the yard, and enjoyed the views.
The 2 guest bedrooms have sloped floors, making the beds a little unlevel. Not a big deal, but not great either.

Nice place overall. Small to very small bedrooms, and the main bath is tiny! The kitchen was very well equipped though, and the dining and living rooms were large enough for the 4 of us. It was great to wake up to the sight of 2 elks in our yard! The property is pretty centrally located, and has some obstructed views of mountains on every direction. No AC if you need that.

Bear Pause is a great place to stay if you want something quiet, yet still close to all the shops and restaurants. It was the perfect size for 3 adults to spread out and not get in each other’s way when getting ready for the day.

Amazing property. My family and I enjoyed a nice Spring Break vacation here. It snowed while we were there. The Ponderosa Realty was able to rent out the airbnb an extra day because we wanted to wait for the snow to melt. The kitchen had all we needed to make quick lunches and dinners. Great for a family stay. The 3 bedrooms are all cozy and decorated with comfy cabin theme. It is also within walking distance from town, but far enough away to not hear the noise. We will definitely bookmark this property to rent out another time!

Great location!! 5 min walk to downtown and only a short drive to RMNP. Everything you need to make a good meal in the kitchen. A bit tricky to fit 3 cars in the parking spot but possible.

This is a fantastic location!!!! Just a five minute walk down to town. (Maybe a smidgen longer going back up the hill). Bear Pause is amazingly clean and well stocked with bedding & towels. The house is in a quiet area so little traffic. The host for the weekend took great care of us! Thank you, Ponderosa Reality. We would love to use it again!!!

We had a great time staying at Bear Pause. We loved the location of this house! It is less than a 10 minute drive to the entrance of RMNP and a 5 minute walk to town. It has a beautiful view of the mountains and the Stanley hotel. We even had a family of Elk walk through our yard. The house is spacious, clean and had everything we needed including cards and board games. The house does not have A/C but we did not need it even though we stayed in July. Ponderosa Realty was great to work with. From placing our reservation to check in and check out was simple. I loved that the front door had a code instead of keys. They had prompt communication and gave us a phone number to call if we had any emergencies. I would definitely rent again if we are back this way.

It is so close to town and Rocky Mountain National Park. We spotted deer and bunnies from the front yard. It was beyond beautiful and peaceful.
