"The Estes Valley Cottage was such a welcoming, cozy home to relax in! The owner was so gracious, the house so beautifully and tastefully decorated. It is located all on one level so easy to pack and unpack into. The wraparound deck was so comfortably furnished, full of beautiful flowers! The gardens so beautiful with perrennials, Aspen, and statuary. All the bedrooms were so special and comfortable, two are walkouts, all with clerestory windows for full viewing, and the master suite was extraordinary with walkin closet, comfortable queen bed, and wall-mounted large, flat screen TV, private walkout to its sitting area on the deck, with its amazing adjoining beautifully decorated large master bath with large shower and spa tub.! One of the other bedrooms has a walkout to the grilling area of the deck, and third guest bedroom has full viewing windows with huge closet. The kitchen was well stocked with nice appliances. The adjacent dining room was so convenient for serving. The large spacious great room was so comfortably and beautifully furnished and had one of two large flat screen TV'sk, with clerestory and full viewing windows, bringing the lake and mountains inside. The guest bath was also decorated beautiful and strategically placed between the two guest bedrooms. There is a large laundry room with stackable washer and dryer, closet, and hanging rod for tenants convenience. The cottage was perfectly located to the RMNP, and yet just minutes from all the shoppes and restaurants and all that Estes Park has to offer. We loved having the Llama and Elk rescue next door. From the lake, we heard elk bugling, owls hooing, and coyotes howling. A perfect outdoorsy experience. But most of all, the owner understood that our dogs are our family, and we would not travel without them. She accommodated them and we enjoyed meeting her dog and could see she felt the same way about her pet that we feel about ours. We will always cherish our stay here and want to stay here on our return visits. Upon returning home, our deposit had been returned. Very professional and a delight to deal with, I can't wait to return!!!"
