we booked 2 nights here only because they were full the nights before and after. once we'd checked in and stayed our 2 days we were very much lamenting that we couldn't have called sooner in the year and gotten more nights in this WONDERFUL cottage and town! the cottage is spacious and clean and sweet. the little patio outside it was so enjoyable as well. we had no cell service and only internet in the main building so life slowed way down. so good. the hot tub looked wonderful but we were there on hot days so did not use it - next time! you can make your own meals in the tiny kitchen and use BBQs but we ate in town instead. there are a few neat restaurants, a lake to kayak on and swim in, fun shops to browse, and a bike trail nearby that can't be beat for interesting (galena mountain biking trail). although the price of the cottage was abit higher than our budget for 2 weeks in hotels, we gladly paid the bill and hope we can come back sometime. we LOVED our time in New Denver!
