Pros: Nice cabin, beautiful windows, comfy furniture and beds, working kitchen, nice deck for relaxing, friendly staff, and good location. Cons: Cars park by the bedroom window, weed eater started at 8:00 AM and went for hours on a Saturday morning, trash pickup at 6:00 AM, and no AC.
We were unable to stay due to the property canceled due to the fires. We were not called and were not offended a refund.we live in North Carolina so a credit was not acceptable. Other properties in the Estes park area gave our family members a full refund. Very disappointed 😞
I will start with the pros: the cabin was thoroughly clean when we arrived, which was a plus. The layout was perfect for a family of four, with one king bed upstairs and one downstairs, two bathrooms, and plenty of space. The furnishings were modern and completely functional, and there were board games in the living room which was a nice extra. The kitchen was fully operational and you could seriously cook for your entire stay if you needed, which considering the hit or miss quality of food in Estes, you might want to consider. The location was great in terms of being close enough to grocery stores and restaurants while only needing 10 mins or so to drive to RMNP, and the cabins were directly across from the lake, which was nice. The property had every amenity that we needed, including bathroom/kitchen supplies and toiletries, and there were extra towels in the linen closet. We did not use the washer and dryer, so no comments there, but I am sure they would have worked in a pinch. Beds were comfortable and I did not notice any sort of plastic on the mattress as mentioned by a previous reviewer, not sure what that was about. We had two decks, one larger off of the kitchen and a smaller off the upstairs bedroom. TVs located in every bedroom and in the living room with cable, also wifi. I did have two preteen boys who complained that the wifi was not very good, but they were trying to use multiple gaming devices simultaneously at night, so I wouldn't necessarily say the wifi was weak, just normal perhaps. As for the cons, there was no A/C, and given that it was a crazy hot weekend in Estes, the cabin did become stuffy from 4 to 8 pm each day. Not terrible, but we did notice. We used the attic fan once the sun went down, and it's doable, but if you are extremely sensitive to heat, this might not work for you. The other issue we had was our cabin's specific location in the complex. We were concerned that we would be facing the road and the high school parking lot, and that was (kind of) the case. We did have a view of the mountains, but the high school and buses are a part of that view, so it's not perfect (perhaps nothing is, really). We did not see any wildlife nearby, which was disappointing for our kiddos. I think it was also an extremely busy weekend in town which made the animals shy away, but I feel like being so close to the road made it less likely that we would get the random elk or deer visit as others have mentioned. Lastly, and this is a minor quibble, the owners may want to consider replacing the dishwasher, as it seems to be at the end of its life cycle, and we would have preferred a fridge that dispensed filtered water (though it did have an ice maker). All of the applicances worked though, which is more than I can say for a lot of other rentals out there! Overall, we were really pleased with the cabin and would recommend, especially for those who need more space than a traditional hotel room would provide.…
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend away from S Colorado and we would return here for every vacation! The cabin was so clean and well-stocked. Seeing a mule deer off the deck the first day really put into perspective how quiet and serene the entire property is. The staff was so friendly and more than accommodating, allowing us to check in several hours early which was a pleasant surprise. The location was ideal, not more than ten minutes to get anywhere in Estes Park, but far enough away from the busy downtown. Highly recommend!
We spent 3 nites at Solitude Cabins over the Christmas Holiday. We loved everything about it - it is very conveniently located, very quite, beautiful view from our window of Longs Peak. This is one of the few places that looked exactly like the pics we saw when booking! Honestly, can't say anything but positives about it - hoping to get back to Estes Park and this will be the only place we look to stay!
We rented a cabin for 5 nights and had an amazing stay. It is so peaceful and relaxing. The cabin was spacious and having 2 king size bedrooms are a rare find. I also appreciate having a pet free option-due to allergies. Management were so friendly and helpful with Estes Park area. You will not be disappointed. We will be back!
We spent our anniversary here (again) and every thing was just perfect. Relaxing deck for am coffee, fireplace every night, gas grill if you want to cook burgers or steaks. Hot tub after a day of hiking. Steve in the office is a hiker and his advice is priceless. Kathy and Kay know the restaurants. They make you feel like family. Trust your vacation to them, they are hospitality pros!
The cabin was nice, clean and well maintained. The people were friendly and helpful when we checked in. The location is perfect. It was relaxing. It is in a quiet location but not to far from the town and restaurants. I highly recommend Solitude Cabins and plan to return.
We just stayed 3 nights at Solitude Cabins and loved it! The managers are the friendliest and most helpful people, the cabins are beautiful and the location is perfect. As we are traveling with children we prefer to have a kitchen for some meals and at Solitude the kitchen has everything you could ever need. Everything was perfectly clean, the cabin was beautiful appointed and the views are amazing. Would absolutely stay here again!
We had booked at the Ponderosa, but the owner had failed to process our booking (see separate review). The Solitude Cabins are amazing. Perfect location quite close to town, beautiful views, and superbly equipped. We were so glad to stay there. Two bed, two bath cabin on two floors, with lounge / diner and balcony with BBQ. Really friendly staff - a delightful two day stay - wish it could have been longer
