We recently stayed at the 'Continental Divide' cabins, using both the upper and lower interconnecting cabins. It was an absolutly perfect solution to housing 11 people including 2 young children for 3 day weekend. We gathered from throughout the US and Australia for our daughters 21st birthday celebration weeknd. Because the accomodation was sourced from internet searches, it can sometimes be an interesting 'adventure' but to our very pleasant surprise the whole experience was just as it was presented on the website.
Because we were feeding so many, I loved the fact that the kitchen in the upstairs cabin was full size, well stocked with 2 sets of pots and pans, had plenty of utensels and included a big refrigerator and dishwasher-and there was a huge dining table that managed to seat us all! As the weather was kind we did get to spill out to the balcony and enjoy some sun as well as have a very short drive to the RMNP for some snow play. The beds were very comfy ( the futons a little less so for adults- but that is always the case) and the cabin well heated /insulated with individual controls for bedrooms. Even though it was chilly outside we found we were turning off the heating most of the time!
We also appreciatd the help that management gave in suggesting several restraunts for the birthday dinner- we chose one just across the road and the staff there were extremely accomodating as well regarding preparations. There was planty of room to park all the cars, and the elk even came right up to visit one afternoon.The free internet access was valuable for connecting with relatives in Australia via Skype so no one really missed out on the weekend! If there was one thing I would let people know about was the hot water can take a very long time to come through in the morning, but it does get there eventually - just relax and wait!
All in all it was a memorable experience for all the right reasons. Would we stay there again? In a heartheat!!!
