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

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
