The house was exactly as described. Perfect fit for our two little families.

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! It is a dream mountain get-a-way. Unfortunately for me, I developed elevation sickness. In the future, I'll be sure to ask the exact elevation of a property before renting. My family and grand kids had a wonderful time. The gourmet kitchen, deck overlooking the mountains, patio, and huge master suite are only a few of the amenities. This owner couldn't possibly be kinder or more accommodating. This is it for a true mountain experience.

Fun cabin and great property

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is nice and spacious with a nice mountain ambiance. We had 3 adults and 3 kids sleep comfortably but could have fit 1-2 more people if necessary. For the most part we were pleased with the condition of the cabin. Our biggest critique is that the utility room and appliances were loud to the point of being disruptive. Cable TV worked fine. Internet was hit-or-miss.

The most unexpected benefit was the property itself. My kids and I spent hours wandering around the property looking at the rocks and plants, searching for "treasure". As a side note, it would be helpful to know where the property lines are so we don't trespass on your neighbors' properties. The back deck was great for meals or a morning cup of coffee. We saw several mule deer in the backyard and adjacent properties.

Regarding location, just be aware that it is pretty much a 1/2 hour drive to civilization. It's a nice drive (Hwy 72N to Estes Park is amazing) but that time adds up over the course of a week.

All that taken into consideration, we very much enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. After driving through the more expensive Estes Park area, I was very happy we chose a cabin in a more secluded setting (Estes Park is a zoo!). Our favorite hike was actually near the town of Rollinsville, about 1/2 hour away, at the James Peak Wilderness Area.

Owner's Response: Richard, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and want to come again. I was surprised to hear that you felt the utility room was noisy. That is the first time I have heard about it. I will check into it. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again. Kim

Fabulous property for the price

  • 5 of 5

Great effort to keep the property updated and comfortable - Deck in back was wonderful to have meals, coffee, and relax in the serenity of the mountains. This remote lodge is a wonderful choice located on a winding road to enjoy hiking at the El Dorado Canyon and Roosevelt Nat'l Park. Kim, the owner, was available to help with any immediate questions and concerns. We appreciated her great communication throughout our rental process. We had plenty of space for our family of six adults and a child. A great time was had by all in our family.

Very comfortable for our group (5 guys), and perfect location for Red Rocks to Fort Collins

  • 5 of 5

Everything went smoothly, from reservations to correspondences to accomodations. Plenty of kitchen supplies to do all your cooking, grilling there if you so choose. Never ran out of hot water either! Not only would I recommend this place, I plan on coming back. Great spot.

Perfect stay for our island family!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place had everything we needed to make us feel at home...lots of pillows, blankets, towels. Your kitchen had everything needed for cooking, baking, frying, crock pot, coffee pot, etc...The view was absolutely stunning, and the animals roaming were wonderful. It was a perfect place to celebrate a college graduate and for us Hawaiian islanders to see how nice it is to be way up in the cool mountains! Location was central so we took the opportunity to go to Golden, Black Hawk and Boulder. Thank you for opening your home to us!
