I must really like this place because every time I stay here I have to cancel my credit card due to fraudulent charges that appear on my credit card that I use. Because I rarely use the card, the illegal charges stand out. Yes, one was a Walgreens in CA, One was a gas station in Canada and this latest one today is for Amazon Prime for $1.98. I had this happen November 2019, February 2000 and now again for my upcoming stay on 03/07/2021 (couldn't even wait for me to get there). This is getting old and I suspect it is not a fluke. I am going to have to figure out a way to make this a cash transaction.
We stayed in the Ponderosa cabin at Tiny Town Cabins for my husband's birthday! Estes Park has always been our favorite spot and holds a very special spot. The cabins were cute and The little lights on the outside made it feel so magical. It's all no contact, which I appreciated. The price is perfect too! There are plenty of things to do near the cabins and a BBQ restaurant that's petty good practically next door. Everyone was so kind and helpful in the office. The cabins were clean and well stocked. This is our new go to spot when we spend a long weekend in Estes. It's one of a kind!
The previous pictures of this location kind of indicate you are off in the woods along a river. If that is what you are expecting, you will be disappointed. It is in a heavily trafficked area but does sit along a riverbed and the short walk along it is very nice. If you have dogs, they are dog friendly and mine did enjoy the water. Most of the employees were pleasant. That is about as pleasant as I can be about this property. I have stayed at many resorts across the country and this continent. I was not expecting a 5 star resort. I rented the tiny cabins for a reason, to get the experience and see if this was something I could do long-term. However, the experience would have been better had the property been kept up and clean as well as the initial reception been good. When reserving the cabin, we did ask for dog friendly, as not all of them are. We were assigned Cabin 5. You cannot find pictures of this cabin on their website (difficult to find lot on their site) so we were referred to a video of cabin #6. Based on the exterior of those two when we arrived, they are not alike. We were to arrive on Saturday. Check in at 4pm. We were called on Friday afternoon and given contactless check in info and were asked what time we would arrive. We told them approximately 1pm. We were told they would call us then and let us know when our cabin was ready as it did feel like the service would be good. Our arrival was early, about 11:15 AM. We pulled up in front of cabin 5, right next to the office. A young lady immediately came out and asked "Can I help you?" This was not the warm and friendly ask, it was a more of a "what are you doing here attitude". She told us she would call us when the cabin was ready. We were ok with that as we were early. There were no other vehicles at any other cabin so we figured it would be just a short while. We sat by the river and ate lunch for a couple of hours. Still no call. We left and went site seeing. Then we went for an early dinner and around 4:15 we got a call saying the cabin still wasn't ready and could they have a few more minutes. We finally checked in around 5 or just before. My point here is they had an opportunity to accommodate some guest and clean their cabin first and it ended up being the last. I know getting the other ones done couldn't have been a priority because the rest of the cabins were sparsely populated there the rest of our stay. I will say, any interaction with the rest of the employees there during our stay was pleasant and they were nice. The property itself looks decent from the outside. The entrance is very difficult to see from the road however and very easy to miss. The road leading into the Tiny Town area is paved until you get to the bottom. Then it is just a dirt road leading to all cabins. It was dry during our stay so every vehicle that came through there kicked up dust. That did seem to seep into your vehicle and cabin. Hardly any grass in the area, except down closer to the river. Deer did roam in the evening times through the area. Extra Trash bags are provided in the cabin, however there is one commercial trash bin for you to take full ones to and it was not easily opened. The grounds itself is dog friendly as I mentioned. It appears previous guest didn't pick up after their dogs every time or perhaps it was because the doggie poop bin was full and overflowing for our entire stay and no one bothered to empty it. Doggie poop bags were provided, but no where to put them afterwards. The deer roam free. So does their waste so watching where you walk in tiny towns is important. Cabin #5 is not in the pictures you see on their website likely for a reason. It is run down, with a foundation that is tilted and a front porch that needs to be replaced. Nails coming up out of the porch and as you walked across it, the boards sink exposing those nails even more. The screen door hinge was broken and the screen door slammed every time someone went in or out. The bathroom window crank was broken as well. The window was cracked open so I had to shut it from the outside. I can put up with a lot, but I don't put up with cleanliness due to laziness. The floors felt dirty and if something was spilled on them and you wiped it up, you'd realize they weren't clean, which we did. Mold on the shower curtain, dirty and grime under the microwave. It was obvious they skimmed on cleaning. The bed linen was clean, the bed, very soft. If you need a firm mattress, this isn't the bed for you. Ester Park is experiencing a mouse problem this year, a sing posted in the bathroom stated this. So mouse traps are put out. However, the spare towels are underneath the sink next to a mouse trap. Not a good feeling of cleanliness when you think where the mice may be. The area surrounding the park has a good coffee house, restaurant, gift shop, grocery store and gas station. They open at 7. There are some other places in town if you need coffee sooner. Again, I can accept a lot, cleanliness is something I can't compromise on. I have given this a rating of 2 simply because I do not know the condition of other cabins and the area by the river was very nice. You do have a view of the mountains, you also have a view of the RV park on the other side of the river.…
I won't even go into the quality of the cabins or place. We booked several cabins here for my child's wedding party.We rented a total of 7 cabins and one of the duplexes. Several of us booked back in October of 2019 for a stay last month. They make you pay 1/2 up front. I booked and with in 2 weeks my card number was used at a Walgreens for a small amount. It was a card that I hardly use so I knew it was from booking on their web site. I found out from my son in law and his father that their cards were also used at Walgreens and we all booked with-in a week of each other. I contacted the hotel and talked with the general Manager Adam and the owner of the site they use called bookingcenter It's obviously a small operation since I called the sales line and got the owner. He denied any breach saying it was impossible and more probable that some low paid hotel worker at tiny town was responsible. Adam was receptive about it but the only thing they offered was to let be call directly and send in a check. After that the other father booked another room with a different card for his mother and guess what it was hacked within the week. It was the only transaction he made on the new card. Several calls back and forth to Adam with no compensation or consideration given for our troubles. He did advise that any credit card given even if over the phone would be entered into their system which is maintained by bookingcenter .com Well we stayed there and most paid the other half with cash except another grandmother. Her card was hacked in the last week for several charges at Avon and other places. Most who book there won't know this is where their card is scammed because as most people think it could be anywhere. The right thing to do would be for the company to send a letter to all guests in at least the last 6 months to warn them but at this point when another card is scammed 8 months later maybe they are selling the card numbers. Management was made aware and did nothing to remedy it. If you have stayed here in the last year check your charges for fraudulent transactions.…
These cabins are perfectly placed near RMNP. You cannot get closer to the park entrance. My husband and I spent a week at one of the cabins this summer and it was perfect. The kitchens are small but completely sufficient for cooking basic meals. We did not go out (it is pandemic season!) and being able to feel isolated yet surrounded by other cabins was perfect. The bed was comfortable and the porch was a welcome area to relax. We could hear the Thompson River roll. The property is dark and quiet at night (hoping it stays that way). We stayed in #15 and it was far from the road. The only thing I might suggest would be a pad for a chair. The chairs are all hard, straight-back, and a bit uncomfortable after a day of hiking. In the future I hope they add more comfortable chairs to all the cabins!…
We stayed 3 days, fabulous customer service. We stayed in #1 River Bend, looks like it was just updated. Great fireplace, cute kitchen and nice bed. Wonderful original windows where saw elk every night; always right out the cabin. Also pet friendly. I would highly recommend this property as it sits by the Big Thompson River and you can hear the rushing water. Very quiet as well.
We loved our stay in Cabin 2 at Tiny Town Cabins! Perfect space for the two of us on a quick trip to visit family and Rocky Mountain National Park. There is a market within a quick walk to pick up groceries and a well-stocked kitchen to cook in for our meals when we didn't want to go out to eat at any local restaurant. I cannot recommend enough the choice of staying in Tiny Town! It was an easy drive to get into the park each day as well, and wildlife roams even on the cabin grounds!
Staying a night near Rocky Mt National Park was a dream come true for me- didn’t bring our 30 ft camper but came across this little gem just a mile from the Beaver Meadows entrance. Super comfy queen bed, fireplace and the cutest little kitchen area complete with all the cooking stuff. Outdoor grill and picnic table too. Right along a lovely mountain stream with plenty of privacy between cabins. Really nice grounds with trail along the river. Caught 3 nice Rainbow trout at the adjacent pond and had them for several meals. Check in was very nice with helpful hints. Will definitely plan to stay here again.
I cannot say enough about the cabin we stayed in for our 15th wedding anniversary trip. We stayed in Cabin 6 and LOVED IT! We would move in if they’d let us. When we arrived the cabin was IMMACULATE. The bed was VERY comfortable for us. The real winner is the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Perfect ending to a full day of hiking RMNP. It didn’t feel like a rental at all.
I had the honeymoon cabin. It was really spacious and nice for a sweet little cabin. It's not The Four Seasons, but what do you expect? My cabin was so warm and comfortable with all modern amenities. I have heard that some of the cabins are a little rustic, but mine was just great. I recommend it to friends traveling to Estes Park. It's a very good deal with a convenient location to everything and you can hear the river running by. I like that sound.
