We stayed at the Mountain Masterpiece, which was right next door to the wedding site (Wild Basin Lodge). It's also conveniently located across from an entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. On the plus side, it's quite picturesque. It has three bedrooms, which worked out well for our family. It was clean and provided all the necessary accommodations. However, there were major drawbacks. Two of the bedrooms are on the lower level, which is only accessible by exterior stone stairways that are somewhat dangerous even in daylight. These stairways are not lit up at all after dark! Extremely dangerous in the dark. Another problem is that if someone staying in a downstairs bedroom wants to go to the kitchen or watch tv on the main level, there's no way to get there except by these outside stone stairs, and they would need to have a key to the main level in addition to a flashlight! I cannot recommend this location.
