I booked a cabin before I read the negative reviews, so I wasn't sure what to think. I'm glad we stayed here.
Very, very clean! There was not even a crumb in the drawers. While we stayed, I saw the cleaning crew spend a couple hours cleaning the cabin next door. They're doing a great job with this.
Very comfortable! The couches, chairs, and beds were great and in good repair. It made for a very cozy experience.
Well-equipped. The kitchen had everything required for full meals for four. The appliances are full-size and in good repair. Everything we needed to take care of the cabin (cleaning supplies, hand towels, extra blankets and pillows) was on hand. The only things I'd like to see are salt and pepper shakers.
Beautiful location. Along the river on the edge of cliffs, it's breath-taking to see. Some folks complained about train noise, which may be true if you're in a tent, but it wasn't a problem in the cabins. We could hear the train, but it wasn't a disturbance.
Convenient location. As remote and peaceful as the location was, we initially thought it'd be far from Glenwood Springs. Not at all. It was a 5 minute drive to the hot springs and downtown Glenwood. We did not bring bikes, but in the future, we make just bike the trail into town and avoid the highway altogether. The best of both worlds, really!
Price. I've seen some complaints about that, too. Considering we'd have to rent two hotel rooms rather than one cabin, then we'd have to pay to eat out every meal, we got a great deal!
This isn't really a con, but it stuck out because the rest of the experience was so good. I didn't get the feeling that the management was really happy to see us there. Everything went fine, but I didn't get the feeling that they were enthusiastic about our stay. Not worth a rating downgrade.
This is a HUGE con for me, but maybe not for everyone, so disregard if not. There is no recycling in this facility. I feel like there's something weird about enjoying nature and then not taking simple steps to protect it.
