Just called at the last minute & George was able to get us in...was wonderful and the Elk came in about 7:30 & munched on the trees then wondered on... loved hearing the River all night long ! Will definately go back - thinking would be great for a family gathering lots to do from the little ones on up ! Area for grilling & big community Hot tub. Childrens play area...

Thank you for your review and accolades. I'm excited you were able to see the majestic elk on the property. Their favorite food is George's flowers and the aspen trees. Thanks again and we will see you next time.

We booked a week away completely relying on the reviews and they were all correct. Each Cabin is personalized...we stayed in Cabin #8 Bear Cabin and it was perfect for my wife and I. Minutes from RMNP entrance and George the owner is onsite to take care of your every need, he even had a gift for us on our anniversary. This place is beautiful and worth your money and time. We will be back for sure.

We've been privileged to be guests of Pine Haven for many years. First as attendees to the Highland Games and then as fall guests photographing the rut in Rocky. In addition, we frequently make off season visits in the spring on photography trips. Our trip in the fall is the highlight of our year. Over the years we've stayed in many of the different cabins and have enjoyed them all. George and the staff have been consistently courteous, friendly and the cabins are always homey and comfortable and JUSt what we are looking for. There is nowhere else in Estes that I would recommend to friends and family. Can't wait until we can book another visit. It's truly our home away from home and if we could afford it, we'd be up there every week.

George and his crew are awesome people. I stayed there last year at the end of September till the first of October and have been wanting to go back since then. We live in Oklahoma CIty so it's not like we can go any time we want but we have decided to make it a yearly destination and The Salazar Family will not stay anywhere else but Pine Haven Resort.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lodge with our family and it was awesome.

Stayed at Pine Haven cabins Sep 9 and 10. Nice little cabin with full kitchenette. Cool, woodsy place to stay with your own deck and grill in addition to community gas grills and hot tub. Does not have amenities of 5 star place (they are log cabins in the woods), but everything they do, they do well. Did have some problems with hot water going out twice during our stay, but the owner was right on top of it both times (offered very late check-out and to use another empty unit if needed - though he didn't need to because he got it going again).

We have been coming here for the past 7 years. We have stayed in a different cabin every time. This year we brought our adult children and they loved it. George and Joan are great, we have gotten to know them. The cabins are awesome, clean, and so much better than a hotel. I love being on the river and in the mountains. Seeing Elk, deer, turkeys, and even bears. I look forward to coming every year. Thanks, George and Joan.

After only a few hours at Pine Haven Resort, the quaint compound of cabins already felt like home. Within that time, we were greeted by residents of several surrounding cabins - all of them repeat guests - and by a small community of chipmunks and squirrels, looking for peanut handouts as is custom at Pine Haven.

Of the cluster of cabins, we had one with an antiques theme, small but comfortable with everything we might need - down to the marshmallow skewers for s'mores! It was very clean and every detail was in keeping with the theme.

The resort backs up to Rocky Mountain National Park, so a steep trail between cabins 4 and 5 takes you to a meadow that provides breathtaking views, and then into the park where you can meet up with well-marked trails. We wished we had explored it earlier, as we got up to the meadow in the late morning and saw recent evidence of deer, elk and more wildlife that we might have been able to spot had we gone earlier in the morning.

If you choose to drive into the park, the location is ideal. It's about a 3 minute drive to the entrance to the park, which we visited each of the three days we were there. And its only about that long the other direction to a shopping center in Estes Park that has a Safeway and liquor store.

After the first day, every member of our family pledged to be back soon, including our almost teenage girl. And that's a pretty strong testament in itself!
