We made a last minute reservation at the Amberwood for a couple of days, including New Year's Eve (Dec 31, 2009). The management was so polite to talk to over the phone, easygoing - like talking to a family member! Same when we actually arrived - they weren't in when we got in, so they just left the key for us and allowed us to check in at a time of our convenience later. We came up to spend our anniversary (yup, we flew to Colorado and didn't have a place to stay for our anniversary), and initially thought we might be disappointed in the "Sunday House" as that was the only thing available (versus the individual cabins). We thought, "well, we'll make the best of it and just use it as basecamp for winter hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park anyway!" Wow, did we underestimate this place! It is charming, and I would love to stay again - and definitely want to stay in one of the little cabins. Our Sunday House room wasn't huge, but not bad sized, with a bed and a couch. Wood paneling, small bathroom, but it had a fireplace and the Amberwood provided the fuel! That was such a treat! There was at least one other couple staying in the Sunday House, but we never heard them once we were in our room. Opening the door in the morning was a really cold, but WONDERFUL experience - the view out the front porch (oh yea, there's a cute little porch that runs the length of the house with chairs outside each room) was just gorgeous. While we didn't see them on the property, we saw elk very near the Amberwood and saw pics of elk and other wildlife on the premises. Prices were also really good - and their website shows accurate prices, photos, etc. We've already shared about this place with friends who live in the Denver area. We are heading back to this area in the spring, and would like to stay here again!
