“Perfect!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is great!! Just minutes from the shops. Quiet, clean, and very roomy for two. The hot tub is the best. It is about 8 feet from your bed. Perfect. We just got back home today (July 3) and it was in the mid low 50s at night, which made it perfect for the hot tub and windows open. The owners are VERY friendly. One thing that would make it better is a bigger TV. Its quite small and its hard to see from the bed. When we go to Estes, we will be staying there again!!

Room Tip: Perfect place to relax.

Found this place in the AAA book. I thought it was a little pricey, but I found a special on their website that had stay two nights and get the third night free, so I decided to book it. Each cabin has a different theme. We stayed in the Southwestern one. Very neat and clean. Good location, just above town and close to Mary's Lake. There is a small kitchen--microwave and fridge, coffee maker. The only thing I would say is missing is a place to eat. is no table inside. We went to eat for most dinners. In warmer weather, you could eat on the porch--there was a table and chairs out there. Lots of wildlife visit throughout the day.

Room Tip: I think they're basically all the same, just different themes according to your taste.

my husband and I went for our anniversary, and we are so glad we did!!! The cabin was BEAUTIFUL!!! When we arrived we were early and we were asked to come back at 3 which was fine because it gave us time to find stuff in town. When we came back at 3 our room was ready and perfect!! Our check in was fast and the owner was very friendly and said if we needed anything at all to let her know and she would take care of it. She explained the hot tub and asked us to keep our trash up because there has been bears. The room was exceptional and we were very sad to leave!!! We will for sure go back as often as we can!!!

Room Tip: this is a couples "retreat" get away, therefore bring your own breakfast snacks and coffee...

This was such a great place to stay. My wife and I came for our second anniversary. I planned all of this as a surprise vacation for her. I was looking for something with a hot tub in the room. This place fit the bill... and then some!
The innkeepers were very polite and accomodating and check-in was a breeze. The property is super quiet. I sat on the front deck of my cabin every morning to drink coffee and could hear the elk bugling in the distance. What a treat!
The bed was very comfortable, the hot tub was nice and warm, and the double shower heads were a really nice treat!
We will be back. This was a great 1st time Estes Park experience for us, thanks in part to the Mountain Shadows Resort!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2011

After much research on TripAdvisor I found Mountain Shadows resort and we're glad we did! We were looking for a cabin that allowed pets as we have a 6 month old Aussie and he along with us loved the cabin. The owners are very friendly and when we checked in we even got a little baggie of doggie treats which was a nice touch. We were lucky to have a group of elk right outside our cabin as we checked in and deer show up too which was very cool.We stayed in the Rustic Romance cabin and loved it. It is very well maintained, clean and a cozy. When you first enter you do smell chlorine from the hot tub in the room but having it in the room is a big plus and plus its not that strong and you can always open a window. The cabins are attached and very close together which is unfortunate but we never had any problem with noise. We had a friendly couple staying next to us who also had a pet so that was nice.

One major highlight with these cabins beside the hot tub is the wonderful beds! One of the most comfortable king beds we've ever slept in. The sheets were top quality as was the bed which made for very restful nights. The unit also has a nicely appointed kitchenette and outside two gas grills for use that are not shown on the website.

We highly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Flower Passion room has best view on property
