We stayed at a family cabin. It was clean and comfortable even thought it was pretty basic. The appliances were in great condition, and bathrooms were clean. Beds were not luxurious but comfortable enough. What's really great about this place are the activities, day camps for kids and proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park. In our week there, we saw a ton of elk and deer roaming around the campus. Our kids loved day camp where they went swimming, hiking, learned archery and rode ponies. We hiked everyday, learned how to fly fish and even spent time at the amazing Craft & Design Center where we painted pottery which they glazed and fired for us. They even helped us pack it up and send it home so we didn't have to lug it on the plane home. The staff is from all over the world, and they were all great with kids. The only thing is the food is not very good, so I recommend going into town - 15 minutes away - where there are a ton of great restaurants or stocking up on groceries and cooking for yourself.
