Sonnenhof Bed and Breakfast, located in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado, is a perfect place to enjoy a getaway from your busy schedule. Stay with your hosts, Hilde and Rudy. Our Bed and Breakfast is only seven minutes from the town of Estes Park and 10 minutes from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Marvel at the fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding moiuntain ranges and Mary's Lake. Awaken to glistening sunshine in a very quiet and secluded eight-acre forest of ponderosa pines. We offer three different luxurious suites from which to choose: the Golden Aspen Suite, Alpine Flower Suite, and the Romantic Rose Suite, all with in-suite bathrooms. Each morning you will be treated to an unforgettable breakfast in our rustic log room overlooking the garden. In your spare time, enjoy the Alpine Garden backyard, featuring a flowing brook and pond...perhaps with a good book and a glass of wine. We welcome you and await your visit!

Sonnenhof B & B in Estes Park

5 on August 06, 2014

Beautiful B & B and the friendliest owners we've ever met on a trip using a B & B. My only concern is that it will become so popular we'll need reservations 2 years in advance!

Fantastic gem of a place to stay

I can't think of anywhere better to stay in Estes Park. Hilde and Rudy are the perfect hosts and prepare magnificent breakfasts for their guests and are so lovely and interesting to talk to. We had the Alpine suite which was beautiful. The house is full of amazing furniture hand made by Rudy who is such a talented wood craftsman. We loved staying here.

Don't miss this one!

We stayed in the first floor suite and it was spectacular. Rudy made all the furniture and each piece is a work of art. We stayed three nights and were so comfortable we wished we could have stayed longer. The suite is extremely private. Deer and other wildlife could be seen in the woods. Although they were under certain restrictions because of the area's devestating flooding in September we were perfectly happy.

Wonderful B&B

This a magnificent part of America as far as the beauty of the natural surroiundings is concerned, and the Sonnenhof B&B only adds to the experience. The hosts, Rudy and Hilde, are gracious and warm and provided every ammenity to make our stay a perfect one. The breakfasts were delicious and our room was spacious and lovely.There is no other place we would rather stay in Estes Park and we will certainly return.

We spent three nights at Sonnenhof and wish we could have stayed longer! Hilde and Rudy are wonderful hosts. Our rooms exceeded all expectations, one with it's hand made oak furniture and spectacular mountain view from the room and the porch. Our second room, located below the first, features the most beautiful hand painted furniture I have ever seen! It has a private patio overlooking a beautiful flower garden with mountain views beyond. The location is ideal, quiet and peaceful, just a short drive to town but away from the hustle and bustle. The breakfasts were delicious, with lots of variety and quantity. After staying at Sonnenhof, we will not stay anywhere else when we visit Estes Park again!

A Glimpse of Paradise

The entire setting of the Sonnenhof Bed & Breakfast is breathtaking. Listening to the waterfalls in the garden was awesome. As we sat on the balcony one evening, a deer was grazing on the front lawn. The gourmet breakfasts were outstanding with Rudy's homemade waffles and Hilde's homemade crepes. Rudy and Hilde's friendly demeanor make you feel welcome in their beautiful home. We are going back shortly. Pete and Elaine from Greeley

Just a slice of heaven, great all around

As you approach the long drive to this beautiful B&B-overlooking St. Mary's Lake you can't help but feel the calm come over you. The place is immaculate, the owners so very friendly yet not overbearing. Breakfast is picture perfect and tastes even better than it looks. Our room was large and there are so many quiet places to sit and enjoy both Rudy's and natures handiwork. This B&B is perfect

Such a pleasant place to celebrate 25th anniversary.

The setting was idyllic, the room was so clean and comfortable, breakfast was beautifully served and so very yummy. Thanks for the privacy offered, but also the amazing times of conversation.

The Best Bed and Breakfast

We have stayed at Sonnehof on four separate occasions. It is always outstanding. The rooms are soooo nice and breakfast is great. Sonnehof is the high point of our vacation once again.

About the innkeepers

Rudy loves wood working and gardening. Rudy learned the trade of cabinetry and wood working in Austria. He also did the woodwork and the furniture in the Romantic Rose Suite, the Alpine Suite and log room. He also created the chandeliers in the log room. I, Hilde, enjoy cooking, baking, arts and crafts. I painted the furniture in the Alpine Suite. Rudy and I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their unique experiences. We enjoy the outdoors and the activities this area has to offer.
