My boyfriend surprised me by planning a getaway for my birthday. We stayed at the little duplex type cabin. The outside didn't look very special but the inside had one of the most comfortable beds and pillows that I think I have ever slept on in a hotel or even resort. The owners were extremely nice. It snowed the morning... More

Absolutely lovely surroundings, wonderful grounds to walk, with a bubbling stream...it was bliss. If you want solitude, this is the place.

I had researched many places on the internet, I was looking for a relaxing, romantic, close, getaway for my boyfriends birthday, I was very skeptical because of some of the reviews I had read. Upon our arrival, I felt very welcomed, the cabin was small but very clean and modern, ours was the Maples cabin. The private hottub was the... More

We've been going to Shelley's for about four years now. We really enjoy it. The cabins are not 5 star luxury, but certainly sufficient and always very clean. The grounds are always very well maintained. The owners are welcoming and accomodating. I think people who stay here have to keep in mind that this property is family owned and operated... More

I think Shelly's was ideal to visit during the winter. My boyfriend and I were looking for a cabin not too far away from Denver where we could relax and do a little hiking. The cabins are located close together, so if all the cabins were full I feel that it would not seem as private. The hot tubs are... More

Shelly's is amazing. You get that rustic feel of being in a cabin in the wilderness, but with modern convenience. Great rooms with amazing beds, private hot tub out back and a great little kitchen. Each cabin also has a grill, which we use on every trip. Right next door to Shellys up the dirt road is a great hiking... More

My girlfriend and I escaped to Shelly's for a scrapbooking weekend. We could not have made a better choice! Just outside of Lyons and located in the canyon-it is very quiet and beautiful, we had no distractions, unless you count the scenery. We were able to check in with no issues, the owners were very informative and extremly kind. The... More

My husband recently surprised me with the most peaceful, relaxing, romantic trip to Shelly's Cottages. Escaping from our fast-paced Fort Lauderdale life, which includes four children, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Shelly's. The moment we stepped out of our vehicle I knew I was in heaven. The owners, Kim and Troy, greeted us at the door and... More

My husband and I went to Shelly's for our honeymoon. We had been looking to stay in CA but the cost went up far too quickly so we decided to look within our own state and we were very pleased to find Shelly's Cottages. We booked it immediately - we stayed in Cottonwood. We loved it so much that we... More
