LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED

Chef of the Month

The Holland Inn was the original name of this building and restaurant, which opened in the early 1930's. After a succession of owners, Neil Quirk purchased the building in 1970, did extensive renovation, and renamed the restaurant The Dunraven Inn. Julius Schneid Kraut and family purchased the restaurant in 1979, offering good Italian cuisine until 1994. Dale and Laurel Hatcher purchased the restaurant in 1994 and made several building improvements while also expanding the menu. Spring of 2011 marked the most recent change in ownership. Cindy and Andy Morgan, who grew up in Estes Park, became the new owners bringing their three daughters and adding their own favorite menu items to the ones you already love. We are committed to keeping The Dunraven Inn your favorite place to dine out.

The Dunraven Tradition

DOLLAR BILL WALLS

Chef of the Month

The tradition began in the 70's when a customer at the bar wrote "good luck" to the owner on a bill and hung it on the wall. The tradition has continued to bring luck and memories to those hanging dollars ever since. The first thing you'll notice when you walk through our doors are the dollar bills, floor to ceiling, hanging in the entryway and bar. We estimate that there is approximately $16,000 hanging in the building. From time to time we remove torn, faded and worn dollars and donate them to local charities. Markers and a staple gun are available at the host stand to assist you in creating your own personal memories to leave on our walls.

The restaurant also has a long relationship with Mona Lisa and it began with three pieces of Mona artwork purchased at a garage sale to decorate the walls. Over the years many loyal customers contributed more, and though not all are on display, the number is in the hundreds.
