About Hoch Resorts

The Hochstetler family owns and operates three hotels in Estes Park, Colorado. Each property has unique features that allow us to meet the variety of needs that our guests have. Perhaps the most valued feature of our properties is our seasoned hospitality staff. We welcome you to Hoch Resorts and would like to provide a brief description of each of our properties.

Silver Moon Inn was the first hotel that our family acquired. We bought the Silver Moon Inn in 1998. Perhaps one of Silver Moon Inn's most valued features is its fantastic location. It is one block from the downtown area, and only a 5 minute drive to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Silver Moon Inn is nestled away from the bust of the downtown area, on the banks of the Fall River. Silver Moon Inn has BBQ grills, fire pits, marshmallow roasts, and a small playground by the river. The Silver Moon Inn also features a seasonal outdoor heated pool and 2 hot tubs that are open year round. We have a variety of boutique rooms at the Silver Moon Inn. Some rooms feature wood or gas burning fireplaces, kitchenettes, large family units or private balconies.

We purchased Hotel Estes in March of 2012. Hotel Estes is an affordable, family-friendly hotel. It is located on Big Thompson Ave., only 1 short mile from the downtown area. The hotel offers some of the best views of the Continental Divide that can be seen in Estes Park. Hotel Estes offers a playground area, a seasonal outdoor heated pool, 2 hot tubs open year round, BBQ grills and picnic benches. Come visit with our friendly staff and learn about some of the best hikes and activities in the Estes Park Valley!

The Appenzell Inn is a beautiful Swiss inspired property, only 3 hotels away from Hotel Estes. We purchased Appenzell Inn in June of 2013. The Appenzell Inn features 34 guest rooms and suites. Most of the rooms have in room Jacuzzi tubs and kitchenettes. The Appenzell Inn also features a restaurant, bar, 2 outdoor ponds and an indoor heated pool, open year round.
