Colorado Cottages
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We just returned from our stay at the Colorado Cottages. We stayed in the Timberline and it is just a dollhouse! It is cozy, with a fireplace, a very comfortable bed, and just adorable! It is small but had absolutely everything we needed. We spent the day hiking and it was so relaxing to spend the evenings in the cottage relaxing. The owners are so friendly, and willing to help with anything. Dharma, the cottage dog welcomed us whenever we came home.The cottage is extremely clean, and smelled fresh when we walked in. No complaints at all. It is very close to the park, less than 5 minutes away, there is a restaurant next door (great pie!), and if you are lucky you'll see a pica out your window!

We have stayed at Colorado Cottages before but for some reason we never left a review. Maybe part of us wants to keep this wonderful place a secret so we can go anytime we want! Carolyn and John have always made us feel at home. They really do think of everything or will find what you need. The cottages are clean, inviting, and cozy. We will be regulars for years to come!

Colorado Cottages is a honey hole in so many ways. The owners went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. We stayed in the Indian Paintbrush and was so adorable with a small kitchen that allowed us to cook alot of our dinners. Great price, in Estes park yet very close to the entrance of RMNP, with a fireplace, tv with cable and hbo, and a hot tub that came in handy after long hikes and sore muscles. Don't bother staying at the bigger overpriced cabins, me and my husband are picky and we loved this place so much!

I was searching for the proverbial cottage in the woods for a mini vacation in April. Colorado Cottages are perfect. A stone's throw from the RMNP, this property has a small number of cottages, a great outdoor not tub, and a friendly golden retriever on site. I stayed in Iris, and it was comfy, clean, and perfect for my visit. Loved the fireplace. John and Carolyn are helpful, kind, and caring. The prices here are totally reasonable. Thanks to other tripadvisor reviewers for the good info on this property!

Room Tip: They are all good. Don't be afraid of cottages facing road: it's a street for residents, and...

Our family (2 families) enjoyed our stay immensely at Colorado Cottages for Thanksgiving 2011. The owners are welcoming & warm and want to do everything to make your stay comfortable. Our cottage was so nice with new carpeting and furniture in the living room. We loved the quaint kitchen. We had everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen table was large enough for all of us (6). The cottage was extremely clean and beds were comfortable. We loved our stay and will definitely be back! Thank you for providing us with a down-home country Thanksgiving holiday. :)

My son and his wife visited Colorado Cottages in the fall 2011 and for our 42nd wedding anniversary, my husband surprised me with a mini-vacation there. From check-in to check-out, I can't express our total delight with Carolyn, John and, of course, Dharma! (I wanted to take her home with me!). Our cottage was cozy, comfortable, well-appointed and wonderfully maintained. It was fantastic having a fireplace at the foot of our very comfortable bed. We especially got a kick out of the elk herd of 50+ that browsed one morning just outside our window! We didn't get a chance to try out the conveniently located hot tub due to the tremendous winds (70+ mph gusts) that visit but are eagerly looking forward to our next visit. February, maybe for my birthday?

Room Tip: Ask for a pet-friendly room and bring your furry companion along!

Our most recent stay was December 24th - December 30th 2011. We have stayed here many times over the last 7 years and this has become our hideaway when we want to escape from Denver between October and April. We don't ski and love the peace and quiet of the mountains without the hassles of the ski traffic on I70. We have stayed in Iris, Woodlilly, Bluebird, Indian PaintBrush, Columbine and posibly Hummingbird. Immaculate, cozy, very dog friendly and welcoming these cottages have everything we need. John and Carolyn are perfect hosts and have become friends. We have 4 reservations on the calendar made for 2012!

Looking forward to beig back there in February.

Room Tip: Cabins on the east side of the property are quiter during W season.
