The location was great- close to everything including RMNP. The room was decent- cozy and good size. However, the smell of chlorine and hot tub chemicals got to us right away. Nice having a hot tub in the room, but the noise and smell were not worth it. Plus it was WAY too hot to even sit in at 106... More

Our stay was from 6/3/15- 6/5/15. We were there to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary. Tina and Rob were more than excellent hosts, they are very accommodating and friendly. The cabins are off the beaten path, which is great so that it is a quiet stay. We enjoyed the wildlife passing through the property. The bed is very comfortable(king size)... More

My husband and I stayed here the weekend of May 29 and 30, 2015 for our 4th anniversary. I'm looking forward to going back! It's set at the base of the mountains, on a very quiet road. The cabins look like they're set in the back yard of the hosts' home. There's 2 rooms per cabin but they're set up... More

The wife and I, along with our dog, choose this place at the last minute, and came away from the weekend experience without regrets. From the beautiful mountain town of Estes Park to the quiet locale of Shadow Mountain Resort, there was nothing for us to complain about on this weekend getaway. We stayed in the Enchanted Cottage room for... More

We absolutely love staying here! Cabins are always clean, and comfortable. We have stayed here 3 years in a row and will be back this year for a 4th. This place is even pet friendly for all of the animal lovers out there. Don't let the fact that the cabins are pet friendly turn you away, they are always smell... More

At the base of the mountain, not on the busy roads, this darling 8-cabin place is clean, decorative, well kept and they are all the same price and as good as each other. you don't have to worry about the 'best' one. GREAT caring owners, available for anything you need. and we took our dog. They allow dogs, because "they... More

Loved, loved, loved it! Cute room set up with Mustang Theme and wonderful comfy bed. Loved having the hot tub in the room. The little things like a towel warmer by the hottub and OJ and muffins for breakfast were great. It's just far enough away from the center of town to be quiet and private, and it's really close...

My wife and I, along with our mixed terrier Macy, stayed here three nights in July. It was cool enough to turn off the a/c, open the windows, and enjoy the fresh mountain air. The room was clean, functional and large, so that we didn’t feel cramped. The TV is okay to catch up on news, but we hardly watched... More

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!

The room was well decorated and the hot tub was great to have. The owners were very friendly. 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
