Wildwood Inn, a 28-key property on seven acres of natural landscape in Estes Park, has entered into a partnership with Life House, a leading independent hotel management and technology company. The hotel’s transition to Life House management took place in March 2024.

This family-friendly destination is located just a five-minute drive from an entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, which is among the United States’ top five most visited national parks. The property’s 14 distinct room types each have deluxe cabin-style interiors with modern amenities. The suites feature private balconies or fireplaces, and some include kitchens and hot tubs, providing ample space for relaxation amidst the natural surroundings.

The previous owners of Wildwood Inn recently retired, passing the reins to new owners Jamie Sutton and Micah Kohls of Sayge Capital, a local Colorado company specializing in the acquisition and management of boutique hotels. In partnership with Life House, the new owners have introduced modern touches to the property. Among the fresh introductions are an improved reservation software, upgraded TVs with streaming platforms, and a self-check in process facilitated by smart door locks. Sayge Capital and Life House are also focused on expanding the hotel amenities to make the property even more family-friendly. New amenities include a guest laundry facility and a recreation room featuring a pool table, video games, and vending machines.

“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Life House to usher in a new era for this remarkable property,” said Jamie Sutton. “We share a commitment to preserving this property’s rich legacy, while integrating technology and hotel management expertise to enhance the overall guest experience.”

The region surrounding Wildwood Inn has a dry, sunny climate and mild winters, making it an appealing year-round destination. Guests at Wildwood Inn can enjoy easy access to hiking, fishing, wildlife spotting, clear stargazing, and scenic drives. Winter activities among the snow-capped peaks include snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The town of Estes Park, located just a few minutes away, offers rock climbing, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The town is also home to a vibrant dining scene and seasonal events and festivals.

“Jamie Sutton and Micah Kohls’ vision for Wildwood aligns perfectly with our commitment to delivering memorable experiences,” said Chris Cave, CEO of Life House. “This property is a true gem that captures the essence of the Rocky Mountains, and we are excited to work with Jamie and Micah to unlock its full potential.”
