This was our first time to the Rocky Mountain area and we chose Pine Haven for it's charm and proximity to the park. We don't like staying in motels so this gave us a more homey experience. We stayed with our two children (age 5 and 10) in Cabin 10 the Daniel Boone cabin. We had 2 separate bedroom areas, a small living /eating area and a full kitchen. We also had a great deck with table and grill. The cabins are in a nice quiet area back off the street. The Fall River runs trough the property and you hear it rushing by, which is quite relaxing. The property is great for children because it is safely back from the road and there is even a playground for them to play on. I could let them go off and play without worry. A paved bike path runs right in front of the cabins that leads into town. We walked in one day (took about 15-20 minutes to walk it with kids) and it was a nice, scenic walk to the downtown area. We checked out the shops and had lunch. It was a nice break from the park.
We were impressed with the Pine Haven staff. The owner, George, is very accommodating. He really cares about your experience and is very helpful in giving directions, suggestions, etc if needed. He does weekly cotton candy parties which are fun for the kids.
My kids enjoyed their time feeding the small ground squirrels that run all over the grounds. They are very friendly and will eat peanuts right out of you hands! Very cute! There is a nice hiking trail right on the property we did one day. It goes right up to the top of the mountain and has great views of the area.
We plan to return back again next summer and will definitely book at Pine Haven again. It was a great experience!
