Our family has made several trips to Colorado and stayed at Shelly's. We love the accommodations and found the owners to be most hospitable. It is our favorite place to stay. We love the walk to the dam and it is centrally located for going to Boulder or Estes Park. I highly recommend staying here. Gael Keyes

My Husband and I wanted to get away for our anniversary so we came up to Lyons. The location of these cabins is really great, just outside of Lyons on the way to Estes Park. The River is right there and there is easy access to get to the river. There are plenty of places to sit and relax by... More

My husband and I stayed at Shelly's in September 2012 on our first trip to CO. The hot tub and grounds were amazing. The downfalls were the comfort of the cabin and the fact that there was no internet or phone service. Also, it was a little pricey. I'm pretty sure there was someone watching us in the hot tub,...

My wife and I celebrated out 27th wedding anniversary at Shelly's Cottages. What a peaceful environment. Close enough to Boulder, Denver, Ft. Collins, Loveland, if you need to get to the city life, but far enough away to enjoy the stars at night while soaking in the hot tub. Our room was clean and comfortable. We brought food along to...

I laughed when I read the last review. We have been staying at Shelly's for a few years now and love this resort every time we are there. The owners operate the resort and couldn't be a nicer couple. When we need something, they do whatever they can to help. Every cabin is spotless and never had a bad hot... More

Shelly's cottages, We decided to try Shelly's cottages for our 1year anniversary since we had driven by it so many times. We had thought to stay before even though our friends and family kept telling us bad things about the place. Well, we found out the hard way that they were right. We reserved one of their cottages for two... More

We stayed a Fri Sat night and it was wonderfully quiet with no kids around. It is close to Lyons for food and gas and just a short trip to Estes Park. No dishwasher which was fine for us and no hairdryer. The best part for us was how quiet it was. The next best part was the gas fireplace... More

I was disappointed. For the price I expected more. I loved the grounds and the sound of the river could be heard from the porch. We stayed in the Cottonwood. I thought it was way overpriced. You were allowed a certain amount of towels for bathing and the hot tub. There was little room to dry them out. No dishwasher... More

We didn't want to stay in Estes park nor did we want to stay in boulder so this was a good compromise. We were looking for something in 70 to 100 dollar range but this was a few bits over that mark. But looking at the room it was like our own house almost with our own small but walk... More

The Mr and I have been staying at Shelly's regularly for a couple of years now. A serene, perfect getaway - quiet, child-free, tranquil river views (deer spotting guaranteed just about every evening!), comfy cabins w/ simple, clean appointments. We sometimes spend the day in Lyons and get in early eves or start early w/ grill-prep and river walks. Whatever... More
