We stayed in Hummingbird cottage for 2 nights in September and absolutely loved it. From the minute we arrived, Carolyn and John were friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble. Even Dharma the dog greeted us with a waggy tail! Carolyn welcomed us and gave us a map of the area and some useful tips about things to see and do. We went to both the places she recommended to see elk and were lucky enough to see them on both occasions. We took her advice and visited Bear Lake on our first afternoon/eve and did the Fall River Road/Trail Ridge Road to Grand Lake on our full day; both were fantastic. We especially enjoyed seeing the aspen trees which had started to turn a beautiful gold. The park is a really amazing place to visit and the cottages are in such an ideal spot, just minutes from the park entrance. We found the cottage quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to walk to some of the amenities in Estes Park. We walked over the road on both nights to visit "The Other Side" restaurant that Carolyn had recommended which was very good and also to the local shop for supplies. We really found the cottage delightful! I only wish we could have stayed longer. It was nice to be able to have breakfast at the cottage before going out for the day and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. We loved having an open fire too! It made the cottage so warm and cosy. We borrowed a film one night from Carolyn's dvd library and curled up on the comfy sofa with the fire going which was such a treat. They also provide enough matches and logs for a couple of fires which was great. We would recommend the Colorado Cottages to anyone - so if you are hesitating about booking, then don't - book today and go!! It really is a lovely place. Thank you Carolyn and John for a wonderful stay! :)

We so enjoyed our stay in Estes Park at the Colorado Cottages! We enjoyed the town during the day, but in the evening we grabbed groceries for supper and grilled on the patio. The treat for us, because we missed our dog, was when we were greeted by the Colorado Cottages Goodwill Ambassador, Dharma! The cottage was so sweet and clean! It was a great stay.

We stayed in Bluebird cottage, which is a duplex. We were originally concerned about noise from the adjoining cottage but they are very well insulated for both sound and heat. Inevitably, there is some leakage of sound but it was very minor. The hosts, John and Carolyn are the best hosts we have encountered in many years of world travel. They are generous with their knowledge and their time and are just lovely. Their Golden Retriever, Dharma, is also a delight. Just don't mention 'bunnies'! All in all, a wonderful experience - we stayed four nights. A great place to base yourself for the sights and sounds of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Thanks Carolyn and John!

I've stayed in a number of cabin locations, but this place is absolutely the best. Friendly owners, clean comfortable accommodations, quiet location, excellent value for money. The website is very helpful too - aside from an availability feature, it has accurate pictures and floor plans of all the cabins, making it easy to request the one that suits your party best. We stayed Friday and Saturday night for the Long's Peak Scottish / Irish Festival, and have already booked the same cabin for next year's festival. They also have great winter packages, which we're planning to try out soon!

I stayed at Colorado Cottages with my wife and 4 yoa son during the Highland Festival. It was very affordable and the accomodations were better than expected. I can't say enough about how nice the owners are and they even remembered my son's name. My son didn't want to leave.

They had all the conveniences needed i.e., microwave, full size coffee maker, stove/oven(small but still cooks food), refrigerator, flat screen TV, dvd player(and a great selection of dvd's you can borrow for free from the office), they even had a hair dryer in the bathroom for my wife. The dvd's are loaned on the honor system. Who does that? I love this place,

They have pack an plays for children so you don't have to bring your own. Every cottage has it's own charcoal BBQ. If you need a lot of ice you may want to bring a bag of your own and stick it in the freezer(not at all a big deal, just a helpful tip).

A free bundle of wood is provided and if you need extra it's only $3/bundle which is very reasonable. We had two fires and didn't need more that what was provided.

We stayed in "chikadee" and the inside of the cabin has knotty pine on the walls and beams across the ceiling. They main room is your family room, breakfast room, and kitchen. The couch is a futon and my son slept on that. The master bedroom is an add on and is separate from the main room. The bathroom is tiny but it was not at all something that would detract me from this place and these nice people.

There is a hot tub but we didn't use it. The hot tub is next to the small play ground which has a two seater swing set that my son constantly wanted to play on. The free shuttle, into town/RMNP, stops across the street in a convenience store parking. The free wifi was great but the signal was weak in our cabin.

My family loved this place and will book here first whenever we stay in the area.
