Husband and I came to Estes Park the first week of September. It was our first time coming and we had not made any lodging reservations (which actually worked to our advantage as we would have stayed at a motel/hotel). We found no vacancies anywhere in Estes Park. We later found out that there was a Scottish/Irish Festival happening therefore the reason the hotels were all booked. We were just driving around checking out the town when we happened to drive by Rockmount Cottages. The sign out front said "No Vacancy" but we drove in anyway just to see the cottages because the place looked so inviting and like somewhere we would love to stay. We drove back out and then my husband suggested we just talk to someone at the office to see if we could get a cottage for another night because we really wanted to try stay there after checking the place out some more. We drove back in and went to the office where we spoke with Carol. She did not have any vacancies for that night but said that the next 2 nights were available. She took the time to actually find us another place to stay for that night. She called around town for us and ended up finding us a cabin across the street at Valhalla. She went over and beyond to help us out. We feel we even got a great price at Valhalla and Rockmount. We stayed 2 nights in Tumbleweed #14 and we loved it! The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had to wash laundry while there and the laundry room was impeccably clean. I think we were about 1 mile from the entrance to RMNP which we spent as much time as possible in. We were wishing we could stay longer but had to catch a flight back to Florida. We highly recommend this place to anyone that wants the cottage/cabin experience.
