The cabins are simple but contain all the amenities you require especially as free WiFi has now been installed. We were there last month and twice saw a black bear from our cabin plus two coyotes, numerous elk also mule dear plus a a large pine martin. If you enjoy fresh-air, wonderful scenery, the freedom and flexibility of self catering... More

It had been 25 years since our initial visit to Estes Park and were not familiar with any motels. We were looking for "a cabin in the woods" when I ran across Machin's Cottages. What a find! The cottages/cabins were quaint without being out-dated and were clean and comfortable. They are situated well apart from each other , giving you... More

We vacation in Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park on a regular basis. All the places we've stayed have been nice, but this is truly the 'cabin in the woods' we've been looking for. Everything is thought of and provided. Bring some food and you can just stay there the whole time if you want. It's close to everything, yet tucked... More

We live in the Denver metro area so we take 2-3 trips to RMNP per year as a getaway. We tend to try something new each time and move around a bit, and we happened to stay at Machin's Cottages this past trip. I must say that the location is wonderful, and the surroundings are some of the best in... More

The cottages are great - cute and well maintained and comfortable. We loved that it's away from the road, but it's still quick and easy to get into town or the park. We had a great time hiking different trails in and near the park during the day and going out or cooking at night. An extra nice experience was... More

Once again we stayed in cabin #9 at Machin's, this time for a week. How relaxing this stay was. The cabins are exceptionally clean!! The area is away from traffic so it is very quiet and peaceful, but close enough to see and do everything you want. The views and wildlife are a WOW. We had deer right next to... More

This is a wonderful base for exploring the Rocky Mountain National Park. The cabins are superb - spacious, comfortable, comprehensively equipped, well constructed and beautifully located. This is a great place for bird-watchers. The cabins are very quiet and peaceful with a very generous amount of space between them. Everything is very well planned and laid-out and the cabins are...

Our family of 6 has been staying at Machin's for over 10 years. We have stayed in 3 different cabins. Each cabin is very clean, has a well stocking kitchen and outdoor gas grill. Lots of wildlife to watch especially the deer and elk. We like feeding the chipmunks and hummingbird. Machin's is inside the Rocky Mountain National Park and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Machin's. It's quiet and away from the traffic noise, but it's only a few minutes from a convenient store, less than 10 minutes to downtown Estes Park, and 5 minutes from the entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Everyone was friendly and the cabin was very clean. I would recommend anyone to stay... More

I can't add very much to the previous review, except to say that we also have been staying at Machin's nearly every year since 1988. The setting is quiet and secluded, and the other customers, mainly repeat business, are also usually quiet, so it's a very relaxing place to stay, with great views and wildlife outside your window. The cabins... More
