Wilderness Cottage was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Wilderness Cottage is the place to be! It is a quaint cottage, in a remote location about 15 minutes from the town of Evergreen, near the top of a mountain. The cottage had everything you could need and was exactly as advertised online. It is quiet and peaceful at the Cottage and most every morning/evening we had deer grazing near the cabin!

While staying there we went to a concert at Red Rocks (~30 mi away) and enjoyed some of the local craft breweries (Revival, Lariat Lodge, El Rancho). We also hiked Maxwell Falls, Three Sisters, and Independence Mountain at Pence Park, and biked up Lookout Mountain in Golden.

Michael, the owner, was a great host and provided helpful information about hiking, biking and restaurants nearby. He was always available and was fun to talk to! This is our second year to stay at one of Michael's properties and they were both wonderful - we hope to be back for a return visit next year!

Christmas at Wildeness Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Micheal, Once again thanks for your great hospitality, we enjoyed our stay at the Wilderness Cottage. It was just as enjoyable as our stay in the Sunrise Lodge in Sept. Thanks for spending the evening with us enjoying the hot chocolate and Meghan's Christmas Cookies. It looked like Meghan, our two year old Grand Daughter, really enjoyed sharing her cookies with you. We had a great Christmas there in Evergreen and look forward to coming back. I think were falling in love with the town and it's people. It was nice to come home but we sure miss our Meghan. It's never fun in the airport saying goodbye to her and Tracy even said this time Meghan started crying as they left us. She's getting older now and she realized we were leaving her. She got an Ipad from Santa so now she can Skype with us, that's cool. Thanks again for everything and we really enjoyed decorating the Cottage with Christmas lights. It made it feel homey.

Owner's Response: Rick and Michele, it was so fun to share your families Christmas visit at the Cottage. Your Grandaughter Meghens Invitiation for me to share her cookies and Hot Chocolate was one of the highlights of my 2012 Christmas. Also Enjoyed meeting Tracey and her husband and will be sure to recognize them around town. We posted your photo of the Holiday Decorated Wilderness Cottage on the VRBO listing. Will certainly look forward to seeing you all next year and once again see how much Meghan has grown. All the best for a peaceful and Abundant New Year ... Michael

Perfect, cozy get-a-way to the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Everything was perfectly clean, and very well maintained. It was the perfect cozy get-a-way up in the mountains. We highly recommend staying here to everyone, and hope to be back ourselves one day!

Beautiful, Quiet and Clean Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for my family (3+infant) and my in-laws. It was cozy and peaceful. In my opinion (being from fairly flat Indiana), the drive to the cabin was terrifying (my FWD Traverse handled it perfectly though) but well worth it. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and would absolutely do it again.

We saw wildlife roaming around the cabin and explored a little of the woods. The TV with DVD player was great for my 5 year old to decompress after 4 days in the car.

We didn't use the patio grill but would have if we stayed longer.

Washer and dryer in the cabin was so convenient!

Owner's Response: Jennifer thank you for your time to write this ver gracious review and we are so gratified that you found your experience at the Wilderness Cottage to be everything you expected and more. We certainly understand that being from the flat lands of Indiana how surprising the steep narrow roads of the Rocky Mountains can take midwesterners by surprise. Glad you actually had no problems getting here and navigating your way around during your stay Regards Michael - Owner

The place was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Place is very clean and comfortable. The first day we saw 3 deer walking down the street and the next morning we saw a huge buck in our side yard. Definitely would recommend to all my friends. The owner is very nice and very accommodating to all our needs.
