  • Nearby Holiday retreat to the mountains.


    My family was thrilled with our Thanksgiving retreat at the Pinecone Palace. The cabin was spotless and very homey. The kitchen was perfect for preparing and serving our feast. We especially loved the all the live plants, to us that makes like it a home, not a rental.

    Eric was a wonderful host. He communicated everything we needed to know. The first snow of the season was expected and he left us what we needed to keep the beautiful porch clear of snow/ice.

    It was so nice that we only had a short drive yet felt like we were miles away from everything.

    It was apparent this was is their families 2nd home. We felt so lucky they shared it with us.

    We would highly recommend this property and plan to rent again if still available in the future.

    Loved the cabin. Clean and very well stocked. Glad we have all wheel drive though as the road is bad. Need hand towels in the bathrooms.

  • Quiet, cozy stay near the mountains


    We had a wonderful stay at Pinecone Palace. Great space for families. We could watch chipmunks and hummingbirds from the porch. You can easily access Estes Park or Lyons and the Rocky Mountains. The drive to Lyons was my favorite, not a lot of crazy up and down turns, just coasting along with breathtaking views of the rapids and scenery. However, be aware of driving up and down from the house. This Kansan was terrified of going up and down the road to and from the house the first couple of days. By the third day, I was comfortable. The drive to the house is not easily marked, thankfully nearby neighbors helped this Prairie girl out.

    We absolutely loved our stay. Owner was responsive when we had questions. Nice property. We saw alot of wild life. We thought we would more secluded but didnt really see any neighbors outside. House was nice and spacious for us.
