  • Weekend stay


    Good location from Estes with an easy 10 min drive. Property could use some new outdoor furniture. Kitchen was equipped with just the basics and very thin and warped pan. It was warm clean and comfortable and a good place for hiking.

  • Estes Park stay


    It's a cute cozy place nestled at the foot of a mountain. Beautiful setting. However, the place was dim. Not enough lighting. No mirrors in the place other than the one over the vanity with a very dim light. Not enough to do do one's make-up or shave. Also, no hairdryer. Most annoying was the shower water pressure. Barely there. Took 20 minutes to get the soap off. The owner did not respond to my request to adjust it.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Tony, we're glad you enjoyed the location! We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following: We have a water-saver shower head with functional water pressure to conserve water. There is a mirror at the vanity and we will put a mirror on the back of the closet doors. Our cleaner has recently replaced two light bulbs that were out. In regards to the blowdryer, we will buy a hair dryer and keep it in the cabinet in the bathroom. We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Great location, close to Estes


    Property is located in a great area, very convenient to Estes without being in the middle of the crowds. The bedrooms were nice and comfortable. A couple of items need attention: The grill and patio need to be cleaned. Cigarette butts still in the outside ash tray/bucket. A lot of the outlets and several lights didn't work.

    This property is suggested for 6. I'd say 4 max. Posting that theres a state wide fire ban would have been nice. Or responding to my email prior to check in would have solved that. There were tons of nails & screws under the car port. Hoping we dont have a few in our tires...however, the view was priceless & the cabin was clean and cozy.
