We honeymooned in Estes Park 35 years ago and this was a perfect retreat. Beds were great and rooms were pretty. Hot tub was a bonus. It's close to town and we really enjoyed our stay. Nice to find a place that welcomed us and our poodles!

It is far enough away from town that we saw elk just across the street but was only a short drive to downtown and Rocky Mountain National Park. It was the perfect quiet location. The cabin was a nice size. We stayed... More

A great place for a couple to get away. It is away from the noise from town but, not too far away. It is just a five minute drive to downtown Estes Park. Owners are very friendly and easy to get along with. The room is just the right size for a couple. The only thing I wish we would... More

This place is great!! Just minutes from the shops. Quiet, clean, and very roomy for two. The hot tub is the best. It is about 8 feet from your bed. Perfect. We just got back home today (July 3) and it was in the mid low 50s at night, which made it perfect for the hot tub and windows open.... More

Found this place in the AAA book. I thought it was a little pricey, but I found a special on their website that had stay two nights and get the third night free, so I decided to book it. Each cabin has a different theme. We stayed in the Southwestern one. Very neat and clean. Good location, just above town... More

This was such a great place to stay. My wife and I came for our second anniversary. I planned all of this as a surprise vacation for her. I was looking for something with a hot tub in the room. This place fit the bill... and then some! The innkeepers were very polite and accomodating and check-in was a breeze.... More

After much research on TripAdvisor I found Mountain Shadows resort and we're glad we did! We were looking for a cabin that allowed pets as we have a 6 month old Aussie and he along with us loved the cabin. The owners are very friendly and when we checked in we even got a little baggie of doggie treats which... More
