5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Loved this lovely 1925 vintage cottage on the Big Thompson River just south of Estes Park. It was close enough to town and major roads into Rocky Mountain National Park, yet far enough away to enjoy wonderful solitude. Sweet retro décor, well-stocked, and the details provided by the owners were appreciated. We would definitely stay there again!

Management response:

We are seligh4ed that you enjoyed our cabin! You can probably see that we just love this cabin and it's grounds. And we greatly appreciate your obvious care and appreciation. RichardandRobin

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed here in august with friend and her two daughters. The cabin had lots of room to spread out. We took advantage of cooking in the kitchen ( very well stocked) and playing board games at dining room table. The two girls loved the upstairs bedroom. Good location... Just a short drive to downtown and park entrance. Nice to have...

Management response:

Thank you and very happy you enjoyed our beautiful authentic Colorado cabin. Please come back again!

A nice cottage, well represented by the pictures. Very clean and neat. Two enjoyable outside sitting areas, one right by the river. Easy access and parking - 10 min to Estes Park, 15 to Rocky Mountain National Park. A quiet neighborhood. One possible negative for some - the stairs to the 2nd level are steep and narrow...unsuitable for the elderly...
