For the most part, we enjoyed our stay in Unit 2.

We loved the private outdoor hot tub, which was so nice at night under the stars. We also appreciated the gas fireplace and basket of hot chocolate and coffee packets.

The location is wonderful. Near town, but very private and close to the national park. We didn't see another property that we would have preferred over Stonebrook.

The sofa in front of the fire was nice. The size of the cabin was plentiful for two people.

The bed was pretty comfortable. Our only complaint was the bedding. The pillows were flat and old, and upon going into the cabin the first time, we noticed a strong odor from the blankets and comforter. Weren't sure if it was because they had been stored for a long time, or if they had been used by previous guests and needed to be washed. The hosts quickly changed the bedding the next morning when we complained and replaced the pillows, but we would have rather not had to smell it and deal with flat pillows the first night. The replacement bedding was just fine and the pillows were fluffy and appeared to be new.

We filled the indoor bathtub once. It was kind of oily and smelled like a previous guest's bath products, so we got out quickly.

All in all, I definitely would recommend the property.

We spent New Years Eve at the Stonebrook Resort! The staff was great and the room could not be beat! Hard to beat an in room jacuzzi and fireplace! The resort is 5 minutes from the Estes business district and 10 from Rocky Mountain National Park. I have no doubt we will be returning the Stonebrook Resort!

What a terrific mountain getaway. We were greeted by Mike (our host) who was helpful and gracious. The #5 cabin was nicely secluded and had a beautiful wooded (snowy) view. We stayed 6 nights. I wanted to buy the couch... it was so comfortable in front of the fireplace. After snow shoeing all day, we were delighted to sink into the corner hot tub and the hot water seemed unlimited. The kitchen had all the tools we needed. The two-burner stovetop was perfect for cooking bacon, eggs and French toast in the morning. The cabin/bungalow was conveniently located to everything Estes Park had to offer. It was a great Christmas!

Wonderful location, condo is great-- quiet. I highly recommend this place. Mike is a fabulous host. We told him we had flown for 2 hours with a screaming 2.5 year old next to us and he gave us a bottle of wine to relax with. Mike recently changed cabin 8 to only 1 bed, and when we said we needed 2 - he graciously moved us to a 2 bed condo. Thanks Mike!!!

I booked the reservation for our room on a Thursday and paid for 1 night as a deposit - $150. Over the weekend, the news in Denver broke a story of a fire closing in on Estes Park. When I called the owner, he said that it was indeed smokey depending on the wind. After talking with my girlfriend, we decided we didn't want to risk using up a vacation day, and spending money to be in smoke all weekend. The owner said he'd refund me back $100. When I asked if that was a mistake, he said that normally cancellations don't get any refund back. Wow!

I can see if this was any other circumstance, but living in Denver, and seeing this fire was all over the news...it really put us in a difficult situation. Instead of good customer service and some understanding, I was met with difficulty, and would have to eat $50 because of this natural disaster. Unacceptable. Of course we decided to go up and just see how things were because we didn't want to lose any part of the deposit. We felt strong armed into this decision though.

Luckily, there was no smoke, and the town of Estes was a nice winter weekend getaway. We stayed in cabin 2, which was pretty great with a King sized bed. It had everything a couple could want, including our own private hot tub. The hot tub was amazing while snow fell down and icy breezes kept the heat from being too much. I thought room 2 had the most private hot tub, even though cabin 1 was closer to the river. Cabins 1 and 2 seemd like the best.

The only complaints I would have on the room is that the walls were pretty thin because we could hear the neighbors easily. If you're stuck next to someone loud who stays up late, or you're a light sleeper, you might get cranky. That wasn't the case with us though.

All in all, I can see why these cabins are rated #1 on Trip Advisor. They are super romantic and very luxurious in a rustic kinda way. There are a lot of river front cabins up there, but I would find it hard to believe any could be better. It was just too bad the original first impression and customer service was severely lacking. I can see why some people have issues with this in some of the other reviews.
