Why Discovery Lodge Staff chose Stanley Hills

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We voted on 4 stars for this property. House was well stocked with cooking utensils, which was essential since we cooked every night. Property is close to the grocery store for all those last minute needs. The children loved running around in the house and the yard. We got to see elk, deer, and lots of bunnies right in the yard. The only issue we had was the dishwasher backed up into the sink when it was ran. They "fixed" it one day, but obviously it was not really fixed since it continued to happen.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. We are very pleased that you and the children had a great vacation. The next time you come maybe you'll see the neighborhood bear! It has knocked over the dumpster a few times, in the driveway! Do visit us again and mention that you've stayed before. Best wishes, Leslie Owner

Very Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my family of 6 adults and 6 children and it worked great for us. One family had the downstairs and the other the upstairs. First night we were there, 3 deer walked through the property! Every day they were down the street under a deck on another property resting. The next night an elk was grazing on our property! Very exciting! Close to everything but very quiet. Clean and well equipped. First time we had lived without air conditioning for years and it didn't bother us at all! Just wish all the windows had screens on them so we could have opened and the patio door didn't have a screen. Wonderful stay though! Thanks Discovery Lodge!

Owner's Response: Hello! Thank you for taking the time to give us this nice feedback. It turns out Otis house IS really great for families with kids! I think the distance between neighbors let the kids yell and just be themselves without worrying about disturbing guests next door. We hope to see you again someday, please let us know that you are a return guest! Leslie Owner

Great rental for great price!

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this house! You can't beat the price for the location and view! You can rent the bottom and top floors separately; however, I don't feel like either floor would have much privacy if you rented with a family you don't know. While mostly separate, the bottom floor is accessible without a code (the code is on an interior door down there...hard to explain). The top floor is good for couples but the bottom floor (because of the bunk room/shared bathroom) is better for a family maybe with kids. Overall it was a great rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words in reviewing the Otis house! It is our pleasure to serve you! One thing I would like to point out is that we do not rent out the two separate floors to two separate families. We either rent out the top floor alone for a lower price or we rent out the whole house for a little more. You will never have to share this house with another family if you are only renting the main level. Once again thank you for taking the time to review our property and we hope to see you again soon!!

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our rental house for our vacation in Estes Park. We were very comfortable and had plenty of room for 5 of us. We would definitely rent this house again.

The only negative were the back deck needs to be refinished. The updating that has been done on the inside was very nice.

Quaint cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our four day stay at this cabin, it suited our party of eight adults brilliantly with enough bedrooms so that my adult children did not need to share. We booked both floors and so had loads of space. We arrived early and were delighted that we were able to book in straight away so that we had time to settle in before my son's pre-wedding evening event began. The cabin is reasonably well equipped although the kitchen lacked some appliances such as a kettle but as we ate out every night it did not matter. When we asked for more towels, the motel management provided them immediately which was much appreciated. Previous reviewers commented on a dirty, stained carpet and I would like to reassure anyone thinking of booking the cabin that all the carpets and work surfaces are brand new and immaculate, it has obviously been refurbished over the winter and looks lovely. There is a road close by but it really is not busy and did not bother us at all. It was delightful to watch the elk graze around the grounds every evening while we sat on the deck with a glass of wine! All in all, a great value for money rental, much cheaper for a large group than staying in hotels with room to relax together in the evenings. I would book it again if ever in the area.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Otis house for a mini family vacation. The vacation was mini but our group wasn't. We had a group of 16, kids and adults. The Otis house was perfect! Plenty of space for the kids to be kids and the adults to get some relax time. The location was ideal, nice and close to town. The remodeling that has been done looked great! Everything was clean, stocked, and ready for us upon arrival!

The entire staff at the Discovery lodge were very friendly and very accommodating! We well definitely be back next year and we'll definitely be staying at the Otis house again!!!
