River Rock Cottages are a nice and clean place to stay, close to town and RMNP. The owners had grills and a fire pit ready for use, which we took full advantage of. Very nice people, I would definitely recommend to anyone making a visit.

The cottage was great, a 1920s recently-renovated charmer. It was nice having the full kitchen, washer-dryer, two beds, two baths. We had cool mornings so it was awesome having a gas fireplace. Convenient location close to town, but that didnt stop the deer, elk, and bunnies from visiting the property! The Virginia House was comfortable, clean, and well maintained. Terry... More

We had a lovely stay during a snowy weekend. Despite all the snow, the driveway and walkways were kept clear, so it was easy to walk downtown or get out to visit the parks. We stayed in Golden Leaf Cabin. Although it is not an ideal setup for two visitors, the cabin is clean, warm, and cozy, and I would... More

The cottages are very clean and the sheets and towels are always fresh and new. The owners are always pleasant and very helpful. It has lovely views of the surrounding mountains.

We have our family reunion at River Rock every year. The cottages are always clean and welcoming, and the owners bend over backwards to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We love the easy walk into downtown. We will definitely book our stay here next year.

We have stayed at many condos and rental homes in Estes Park. Considering the close proximity to downtown Estes, the price is reasonable for a stay in Estes. We were glad to be able to secure a one-night lodging option, especially over Valentines weekend (we frequently go to Estes near Valentines Day, as our Anniversary is Feb. 10 and we... More

We drove up from Denver to spend a quiet weekend in a cottage. Enjoyed every minute of our weekend get-away! Walking to downtown Estes Park was easy and fun, especially on a gorgeous day! We look forward to visiting again in the summer! Thanks for the great weekend!

This couple has great cottages available in Estes. Best part - they are right down town! Just walk up/down the hill & you can explore all the little city has to offer. We stayed in the Wapiti cottage - loved it & saw a huge bull elk stroll through the neighborhood while we were there. The cabin was clean, had... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on our Wapiti Cottage! We appreciate it!

I absolutely am amazed by the costumer service and compassion the owners have. There was quite a loud party going on next door to us and we had a rough night but the owners were so gracious in hearing us out and making my boyfriend and I feel heard. We will be back for a second chance which I'm sure... More

Not only was the cottage lovely and clean, but the owners are fantastic. When we left an item behind, it was immediately found and mailed to us. The owners went out of their way to offer us a wonderful experience. River Rock Cottages are not to be missed!
