We have stayed at Machin's Cottages three times. Each vacation, we have rented a cabin for two to three weeks. The owner is a fine gentlemen who takes great pride in providing a peaceful place to stay. There are 18 cabins on the property, so there are several to choose from. Some cabins are clustered near each other while others... More

This was our 3rd or 4th stay at Mr. Machin's and our second stay in Cabin #9 which has one bedroom. Nothing fancy but always clean, quiet, and well supplied with everything you need. As others have mentioned, this is not a 5 star resort. Furnishings are dated but, to us, add to the flavor of being in a quiet,... More

We truely felt like we were coming home as this was our second stay at Machin's Cottages and we settled right in to our cabin upon arrival. I knew the kitchen was well stocked which saved us packing many items. Brought some food and moved right in. After a week of exploring Rocky Mountain National Park and enjoying the wildlife... More

we loved this cabin tucked away from the busy road. A fireplace, TV with cable, gas and charcoal grill on back patio with picnic table and folding lawn chairs and an awesome front porch with another table and chairs. Huge bathroom with space to spare. Cabin #11 just right for the three of us and our little dog, too!! Close... More

This is a very special place to spend a quiet, restful period of time. The cottage was excellent with lots of room, very clean, everything you need int the kitchen to cook with, firewood etc. But the best part is the setting-quiet, peaceful, relaxed. From our deck we saw a bear, a huge bugling male elk marking his territory and... More

This is an incredible place to unwind and relax after hiking and visiting in Rocky Mtn NP. We have stayed here over multiple years and always come back for another dose of peace. The nice thing is that the cabins are all different but well furnished, clean, nice kitchens, and quiet. Machin's is actually inside the border of the NP,... More

We stayed in Cabin 8, Everything is immaculately maintained and in pristine condition. We had a deep shaded porch with wonderful views and the trail to RMNP was right outside our back door. Quaint and charming. Secluded and relaxing

The cabin was super clean, the kitchen was equipped to prepare any meal desired, bathroom had a full size tub and shower with good pressure and nice hot water and plenty of forest green towels. Fresh towels and linens are available every morning from 8-11:55.... More

Stayed in cabin #8. There was a weird gas smell every time we walked in. The living room carpet had a ground in dirty walkway path in it, frayed edges in the middle of the room. The couch had to be from the 60's, hard plastic that was extremely uncomfortable after sitting on it for 30 min. And unfortunately, the... More

Our son found this great cabin in the woods. The cabin is clean, well-maintained, quiet, well supplied and in an excellent location for exploring Rocky Mountain National Park. Estes Park has a free shuttle service with a stop about 1/2 mile from the cabin. This allows you to get around Estes Park or take you into RMNP to catch the... More
