Met up here for a family reunion late June-July. After MUCH looking, chose the property based on past reviews, location to RMNP and Estes Park (walking distance) and ability for all families to be close yet have their own space. We were not disappointed! Cottages were simple but had everything we needed. They were very clean. We enjoyed being able... More

We needed a place to stay for one night in Estes Park on fairly short notice, and River Rock Cottages happened to have one of their cottages available on the night we needed (the only night they still had open in all of July!). So we booked Wapiti Cottage, which is their cottage a little apart, and closer to downtown,... More

Terry and Carolyn take good care of this property. We rented 6 of the units for our family group of two parents, 5 grown and married children with spouses and our grandchildren. The common area worked great to gather and for the kids to play. They had a great time on the property itself. We played lots of cornhole, had... More

The location for the cottages was fantastic for being close to town. If you wanted to be closer to the parks, there may be places more convenient. We spent a lot of time in the times but it was great to be able to just walk to town. We were there for a family reunion so it was great for... More

My husband and I stayed at River Rock Cottages for 3 nights and were really pleased with the cabin. It's clean, homey and very comfortable. The beds are extremely comfortable which was important after long days of hiking. There is a fire pit, corn hole game, and Adirondack chairs centrally located and available for the guests use. The cabins are... More

We spent five nights in the Bighorn cottage with our two teenagers and five year old. We had an amazing week in Estes park and the cabins were awesome! Short walk to picturesque town, all necessities needed to cook meals at cabin, and 180 degree view of mountains from sun porch. Definitely plan to come back again next summer!

My family enjoyed their time at River Rock Cottages. The Chickadee cottage was very clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. The courtyard was great to hang out in and the scenery was very relaxing. We were close to everything. Terry and Carolyn are great people and have helpful hints on places to visit. We'll be returning :)

YAY! So happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and you liked our courtyard area. Our son, Cam, just built the permanent firepit this May and it's working out really well. We appreciate your taking the time to give us feedback and look forward to your next trip! ~ Carolyn More

Our cottage could not have been more perfect. Comfortable beds, large bathroom, kitchen with all that you could need. And an elk in the backyard in the morning! This is an incredible option for any stay, walking distance to the main strip in downtown Estes Park. Quiet, quaint and affordable.

Four of us decided to rent a little cabin near town in Estes Park for Memorial Day and it was such a great idea. We had the Chickadee Cottage which has accommodations for 4 persons, a room with a full bed for 2 and a queen fold out bed in the front room for 2. The place had a nice... More

We had a great stay in the Golden Leaf Cottage. It is a beautiful property and very close to everything Estes Park has to offer. Easy check in/out. Kitchen supplied with everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable. Can't wait to come back!

Thank you so much for your comments! We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our Golden Leaf Cottage and that you appreciated our lock box approach to check-in. The king bed in Golden Leaf is new and it's good to hear that it's comfortable. Looking forward to your next visit! ~ Carolyn More
