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... More

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2016 via mobile

My friends and I traveled to Estes Park for the Rocky Mountain Half Marathon and were very impressed with our accommodations. The cottage is clean, nicely designed, and just a couple minutes from downtown Estes Park. Great communication from the owners made this a perfect place to stay. Thanks again! More

My husband and I stayed in Evergreen for 2 nights in mid Sept. This studio cottage is a prize... about the size of a standard hotel room but so much better. Absolutely immaculate and beautifully decorated with nice amenities, a very comfortable bed, and lots of windows with light blocking shades. A second sink located outside the bathroom is a... More

My friend and I stayed one night in the Evergreen cottage (the smallest on the property). I chose River Rock, as I had stayed in a larger cottage a few years ago with a larger group of friends. Both experiences were wonderful. The location is great, as we could walk right down the hill to town for shopping and dining.... More

We were 2 adults staying in the Fern cabin. Hard to locate since we were unfamiliar with the Estes Park area, but once we found it we were pleased to see how close and convenient it was to the shopping and restaurants. The cabin was very clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was serviceable, but built along... More

We rented The Fern Lake cottage for 3 nights mid September. The cottage has anything/everything you need. Super clean and very quiet. The location is great, just a few minutes drive to the RMNP entrance, and a few minutes walk to the restaurants and shops in town.

Combine a clean and comfortable cottage with a short walk to main street (it is a bit of a hill coming back) and friendly owners and you get an awesome stay in Estes Park. Would certainly return for another stay.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review! We're very glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the cottage clean and comfortable. You are right...it's an easy walk DOWN the hill to downtown, but you're definitely going to feel it coming back UP :-) Thanks again and hope your family comes back soon! ~Carolyn More

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.
