We rented a basic, 2 bdrm cabin for a few nights at a lower rate than most hotel rooms in Estes. Rustic, not fancy. Clean, older furnishings. Heat works great. No A/C (none needed). No TV (that's a plus). Very quiet, day and night. We cooked all meals in the kitchen, ate at the dining table or out on the deck. Our 2-year old loved the bunk beds, the forest around the cabin, the playground nearby and the crafts center where she made a necklace and painted a coffee mug, the museum, and especially the abundant elk that milled around the cabin day and night. Lots for kids to do and see, and everything is easy to walk to without dodging traffic. Not very dark at night due to streetlights, so stars are not easy to see. Lounge chairs on the porch are outstanding for mom and dad to read while the kids nap. Coffee shop in the general store is not so great. Downtown Estes and Rocky Mt National Park are both about 10 minutes away. Definitely will stay here again.
