If you are planning far enough ahead, you can find much nicer cabins for the price.We have stayed in unit 15 twice because I couldn't plan ahead and most of the nicer cabin resorts were full. It was a popular Fall weekend for viewing Elk and aspen colors. the unit has three beds, two in one bedroom, which is perfect for our family with two teenagers. This weekend was cold, and the cabins do not have a fireplace. The baseboard heaters are only in the bedrooms and bathroom, making the living room cold and the bedrroms too hot. The kitchen is tiny, and though I brought pre-prepared lasagne to heat up and our electric fonu pot for the other dinner, there was no colander, cheese grater, pan appropriate for pancakes, large coffee cups. If the cabin 15 were half the price I would say it was a good value. But for $225/night it is overpriced. The best feature of this cabin is the deck hanging right over the Fall River. If you are going to fly fish, it would be perfect. if you are going during warm weather and can hang out on the deck the whole time, it would be great. But in the Fall...I suggest looking around a little more. Next year I will.
It looked like the cabins that are not duplexed might be cuter. 15 is duplex with 16 which has three...

First, lets address the cold. These are summer cabins that are only open thru the 15th of Oct. because we are not winterized, the weekend that you stayed here it dropped to 17%. We had pipes frozen and broken everywhere. We moved everyone to the west side where you were at as those pipes are more protected, we have stayed open until Oct. 15th for 32 years and have NEVER had a freeze like that. I am truly sorry that it happened BUT it was out of my hands. We have some wonderful eden pure portable heaters that heat 1000 sq feet. We gave out two of those during that time and the customers were very happy and warm. cabin15 is heavily insulated (was totaly remodeled last spring) so I had no idea there was a problem, wish you had come to us and we could have taken care of it.

When people check in to our cabins, we ALWAYS tell them if you need anything at all Please let us know and we will see to it that you have it. The office is about 20 foot from cabin 15 if you needed all these things why didn"t you let us know. We would have gladly gotten them for you.
cheese grater, colander, large coffee cups?????? REALLY????? If you indeed have stayed in that cabin before, you must have known these things. The very last thing we tell our customers as they head to their cabins is, Have a good time and if you need anything Please let us know. I also hope you make your plans earlier next year.
And Last but not Least In order to look at Fall River from my deck you would have to have awfully long arms and binoculars because Fall River is 5 miles from here and on the other side of Estes Park. We are VERY proud to be on the Banks of the Big Thompson River. Makes you wonder, huh?
