I nearly fell over when we learned these cottages are over 8 years old because they are kept in pristine condition! The owners are lovely and clearly care about their property and the guests experience. This is the perfect location for walking to town too. We'll be back!

Wow! You just made our day! We're so glad you enjoyed our cottage and that we made you feel welcome. That's obviously our goal! Pleased that you took advantage of our location and walked to town. We live in the back of the property and walk everywhere ourselves. Thank you and see you next time! ~Carolyn

I stayed in Chickadee in October. Carolyn & Terry and their son Jess are very nice and immediately made us feel welcome. The cottage was very clean, cute and updated! The furniture was comfortable. I liked the Estes Park guidebook the owners put together. The grounds have picnic tables and a fire pit. It's a short walk to downtown. Will...

This was our second time staying at River Rock Cottages and it did not disappoint. The cabins are clean comfortable and well maintained. There was plenty of room for our family of 4. We also enjoyed watching the resident mule deer. It was convenient to be able to walk into town. We will stay here again!

Great location in Estes Park. We walked to town, unfortunately very little was still open at 7 on a Wednesday, mostly candy shops. We stayed in Fern Lake and it was very cute - equipped with wifi so we could watch netflix. The beds were pretty comfortable although the bedrooms were pretty small. There was a nice little kitchen.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! We're so pleased you enjoyed our location and our Fern Lake Cottage. We are starting to get into our winter months and many of the shops downtown start closing earlier in the evening. It bums me out too as I love to wander through our downtown shops. Hope you come...

The Cabins are very well kept and clean. These cabins have the latest amenities. The Beds were very comfortable. They are within walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants. The owners (Terry) are very nice and respect your privacy. If I could help anyone with a decision, I would say that if your looking for views, do not stay here....

We stayed at the Wapiti cottage for a wedding reception that was right across the street. The cottage was clean, and a very close walk to downtown restaurants/shops. Check-in was super easy, and we received an email the day before with lock box information, and directions. I would recommend to others.

We stayed 3 nights in the Wapiti Cottage the last weekend of the season (Columbus Day weekend in October). It was the last weekend the shuttles go to the park so the cottage is the perfect location. You can walk down the hill for food and coffee in 10 minutes. (Inkwell and Brew Coffee was super close and was great)....

Thank you for the taking to write a review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our Wapiti Cottage. Glad you found Inkwell and Brew Coffee...it's an awesome place for coffee and to just hang out by the river (really cool greeting cards as well). Good for you in taking advantage of the location and keeping the car parked....

I needed a place that had a full size refrigerator as I was doing a wedding cake for a friend's wedding at The Stanley. Wapiti cabin was just perfect!! It was clean, comfy and cozy. The price was right too! Will definitely stay at River Rock again!

The Wapiti cottage was much nicer than staying in a hotel; clean, cozy, comfortable. Easily accessible to downtown yet far enough away to be quiet, the view spectacular. What a treat to wake to the sound of elk bugling right next to the cottage. I would highly recommend staying at the River Rock Cottages and would not hesitate staying there...

There's nothing like a visit to Estes Park in the fall and experiencing the elk bulging. They're still at it and will be for a few more weeks! We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay and you found our Wapiti Cottage cozy and clean. Hope you can make it back again soon. ~ Carolyn
