By far the best place to stay in Estes Park. The rooms and the property were all very clean and well thought-out. Booking, checking in/out all top-notch! An easy walk to town. I bumped into one of the hosts and had a great conversation - very friendly!

Stayed for one night last week. The rooms were well maintained. The property is located very close to shops and price was reasonable. Could not stay longer as we had limited time in hand. Will definitely plan for a longer trip next time and will book the same cottage next time.

Our family of five (two adults, three kids) stayed for four nights in August 2016. The Golden Leaf cottage was clean, comfortable, and convenient to both downtown Estes (a short walk) and Rocky Mountain National Park (a short drive). I used to stay at these cottages as a kid when my grandparents owned them, and Carolyn and Terry have done... More

Our little cottage was very cosy, the bed was great. Little things that were available in the kitchen (like plastic wrap and sandwich bags) made the stay comfortable and we loved the garden in the middle of all the cottages that was beautifully arranged. The owner played a game with our 8-year-old in the garden which gave us the rare... More

Aspen Cottage was really clean and nicely furnished with new fixtures and furniture. Maybe my mistake for not clarifying, but I was disappointed to discover that the king bed and queen sofa bed were all in the same room, which was not ideal for us to share with my 20-year old son. The outdoor area was nice, with tables and... More

We appreciate your time in sharing your experience at our Aspen Cottage! Really happy that you found the cottage clean and you enjoyed our new furniture and fixtures. Both the king bed and the queen sleeper sofa are new this year. We're sorry that you didn't realize this was a studio layout prior to booking. Never fun when your experience... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at River Rock Cottages for three nights, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to be for our hiking trip! The cottage was cute, clean, and comfortable. A real home away from home! It's only 4 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park (some of the best hiking we've experienced so far!) and a... More

This was our second stay at River Rock Cottages. The cottages are clean and comfortable. We love being within walking distance of downtown and the grocery store. The fully furnished kitchen and dining room make it simple to enjoy meals or snacks if you choose to stay in. (We enjoyed breakfast in the cabin before heading out for the day).... More

Easy walk to restaurants and shops in town. Great views of the mountains, Longs Peak, the Twin Owls and many more. Spotlessly clean cabin. Friendly but not intrusive host. Saw elk in neighbors yard. Cozy.

Our group of five (father, his wife, self, two sons) stayed here for two nights. Walking in was a pleasant surprise, as the living/dining area was quite spacious, and the cottage was very clean. The bedroom had a walk in closet which was helpful for storing my sons' bags, as they slept on the pull out sofa. We used all... More
