Our stay at the Big Horn cottage was a perfect fit for our Thanksgiving week vacation in Estes Park, Colorado. The location was ideal for all of our outdoor excursions and we spent the week hiking, ATV riding, horseback riding, and shopping. Loved the full kitchen and washer

My wife surprised me with a weekend getaway for my birthday to Estes Park. Terry and Carolyn went out of there way to help us out during our stay. The accomodations were well maintained, clean and in a great location. We will be staying with them again.

We loved our stay! Two bedrooms and two baths were perfect. Very clean and comfortable. Complete with deer passing by the front door. Very short walk to everything. The only thing missing was a washer and dryer, which we didn’t need for a short stay.

Nice roomy kitchen with everything we needed
View from our cottage - you can see the Stanley Hotel in the distance.
Clean and comfortable. Serviceable but small.
Do the cottages have air conditioning?
This is Carolyn, one of the owners of River Rock Cottages. I've been traveling and just seeing this question. Thank you to our prior guests for so graciously answering! Actually, none of our cottages have air conditioning and typically it's not needed. We do have ceiling fans and floor fans and opening the windows provides wonderful breezes. It always gets down nice and chilly in the evenings. Thanks for your interest and thanks to our guests for helping out while I was away!

Is there any place where smoking is allowed?
Thank you for your question! While we do not allow smoking on our property, many of our guests take a walk on the residential streets in our neighborhood while they smoke. We're also 2 blocks from downtown where there are no bans on smoking (other than a certain distance from restaurant entrances). Hope this helps! Carolyn

How close is this to the Fall Back Beer Fest?
Hi Carl, We're about 1.5 miles from the Events Center (at the fairgrounds). We walk there from our property but it's also a short drive and they have lots of parking. The event is also sponsoring a free shuttle from downtown to the Beer Fest. You could walk two blocks down the hill from our property and pick up the shuttle to the event. Lots of options! Thanks for your question, Carolyn

How is the view from Wapiti? How close it is to the Stanley?
Beside the info from others, I would add that the cabins are a very short walk from downtown Estes - great location, super clean.

"Check their website for pictures of Green Gables Cottage"
"chickadee cottage was perfect for 2 people. Might also work for a couple with 2 small children since the couch does pull out into a bed"
"Check in at 3pm. Check out at 10am"
"These are cabins not hotel rooms."
"Great access to downtown area!"
