When and How Do I Pick Up My Keys?
Key Pick Up Time: 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. MT / Check Out: 10:30 a.m. MT
You can pick up your keys between 3:30 – 6:30 PM MT. Keys may be obtained after 6:30 PM from a lockbox located on the stairway of the building where your condo unit is located. Instructions will be provided upon request. Early check-in may be available for a charge of $100. You must give us at least 24 hours notice, and we are likely to not be able to accommodate any check-in prior to noon. Late checkout is $50 for less than one hour and $100 if more than 1 hour and less than 2 hours late. Checking out later than 2 hours past check out will result in a charge for an extra night stay, however, you will not be allowed to stay for an extra night. Keys: Please return the keys to the office at check out. There is a $5 fee for each missing key. Please drop the keys off in the box outside the office, if it’s before 8 a.m. MT.

Is There Parking?
Fall River Village has very limited parking and therefore for the fairness and convenience of all guests, the parking policy is strictly enforced. ONLY ONE PARKING SPACE IS PROVIDED FOR EACH UNIT AND THERE IS NO VISITOR PARKING ON SITE. Motor homes are also prohibited. Please plan accordingly. Parking in a second space or parking a vehicle too big for the parking spot allotted will leave another guest without a place to park. You will be issued one parking pass per unit upon arrival. Please ensure the parking pass is in plain sight on your vehicle’s driver-side dashboard at all times when on the Property. Vehicles without a parking pass will be towed at owners’ expense.

How Many People Can Stay with Me?
The number of guests occupying a property is limited to the number stated on the rental confirmation with the exception of a child requiring a crib. These limits are strictly enforced. Exceeding the specified occupancy constitutes a breach in the rental agreement and may lead to termination without refund of rent. Note: Children that are 4 years old or younger are not required by the owners to have a bed; all other children and adults do as sleeping on floors, sleeping bags, sofas, airbeds, etc. is not allowed.

Are Pets Allowed?
We do not allow dogs on the premises or in any of the Fall River Village properties.  While we love our pets as much as you do however this policy is in place to ensure all of our guests are comfortable throughout their stay. Please review our Terms and Conditions page.

Is There Air Conditioning?
Few mountain properties in Estes Park have air conditioning because the nights are cool and there is a very brief season when the days get warm enough to need one. Even though some of the thermostats at Fall River Village have a setting for A/C, there is no A/C. Box fans are available upon request. Opening the windows in the morning and evening creates a cross-breeze that easily cools the condo. First floor condos do stay cooler than the second floor.
