Our 3rd stay here and it was perfect. It's not on the heavily traveled main road (in fact, it is literally "at the end of the road") so it is truly relaxing. The cabins are older but are VERY well kept and have everything you need. (microwave, coffee maker, oven, stove, refrigerator/ freezer and all pots/pans and cooking utensils you... More

We appreciate very much that these guest stated that the cottages were older, but very kept. We spend much time and money every year to keep the cottages in very good condition. We are proud of of our place, and we spare no effort to have the cottages in tip top condition. We are pleased that these guests recognize this.... More

We spent a family vacation in Estes park over the 4th of July, which is a crazy time in that area. We were quite relieved to arrive at Machins Cabins--on the south side of the city, up a hill and very removed from the busy traffic of Estes park. Check in was quick and easy, and Mr. Machin was very... More

This was our second visit to Machin's Cottages. Off the beaten path, it is quiet, serene, and a wonderful place to escape for a week, away from all the hustle and bustle. The cabins nestled in the tall pines and boulders. Well appointed kitchens with everything you need to cook any meal, just add food. Clean, rustic, with a feel... More

They have 1,2, and 3 bedroom cottages on a side street that is away from the town. The elevation is about 8000' feet above sea level and you are amongst the pine trees and Rocky mountains. Each cabin is fairly secluded and the neighbors are far enough away. This location is within the Rocky Mountain National Park and there are... More

My soul is happier after a week at Machin's Cottages this May. Nestled in Ponderosa Pines, and big boulders, Cabin #5's deck is the perfect vantage point for wildlife viewing and bird-watching. The first morning, a herd of Elk paraded up the Beaver Creek draw- about 100 cows with babies. Throughout the week, groups of elk and deer passed through,... More

We have stayed at Machin's Cottages three times. Each vacation, we have rented a cabin for two to three weeks. The owner is a fine gentlemen who takes great pride in providing a peaceful place to stay. There are 18 cabins on the property, so there are several to choose from. Some cabins are clustered near each other while others... More

This was our 3rd or 4th stay at Mr. Machin's and our second stay in Cabin #9 which has one bedroom. Nothing fancy but always clean, quiet, and well supplied with everything you need. As others have mentioned, this is not a 5 star resort. Furnishings are dated but, to us, add to the flavor of being in a quiet,... More

We truely felt like we were coming home as this was our second stay at Machin's Cottages and we settled right in to our cabin upon arrival. I knew the kitchen was well stocked which saved us packing many items. Brought some food and moved right in. After a week of exploring Rocky Mountain National Park and enjoying the wildlife... More

we loved this cabin tucked away from the busy road. A fireplace, TV with cable, gas and charcoal grill on back patio with picnic table and folding lawn chairs and an awesome front porch with another table and chairs. Huge bathroom with space to spare.

This is a very special place to spend a quiet, restful period of time. The cottage was excellent with lots of room, very clean, everything you need int the kitchen to cook with, firewood etc. But the best part is the setting-quiet, peaceful, relaxed. From our deck we saw a bear, a huge bugling male elk marking his territory and... More
