Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. I enjoyed the creek that runs right by the property. This place had everything I was looking for to have a weekend getaway in the Denver area.

Nice roomy cottage, nice location

  • 4 of 5

Nice cottage with roomy living area. Right on the river, so you can hear the relaxing sound just by opening the window.

Just what we wanted for a girls' weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent a weekend getaway in Colorado and this cottage was the perfect location. We did the zip line adventure just down the road, hiked around Echo Lake and St. Mary's Glacier, shopped and walked around historic Idaho Springs and enjoyed a day spa in Evergreen.

The owner was very responsive starting from my first inquiry. She had the lights on and soft music playing, what a special treat for arrival after a long day of travel! We were busy throughout the days and enjoyed each evening sitting in the swing and enjoying the fire on the patio. Neither of us had cell service beyond texting, which was also a nice treat!

My sister commented several times how comfortable her bed was, and I would agree. Pillows, towels, décor, kitchen supplies - there's attention to detail throughout the house. It's not new and modern, but clean, comfy, and well maintained. We felt like we were staying at grandma's house (which was a good thing to us).

Along with being on a creek, the cottage does sit right on the highway so you hear traffic in the evening and it tapers off at night. It's what we expected looking at the map, and to us it was a tradeoff for convenience in getting to places we wanted to visit.

We definitely recommend!

Comfy cottage by the creek

A comfy and cozy cottage by a swift-flowing which was conducive to great sleeping. Excellent WiFi and good TvV reception with music channels. Swerved my purpose well.

wish we stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay , Was great! Has every thing! TV and WI-FI was nice since phones had no service. Close to every thing in the area. Plenty of HOT water for showers. We liked the out door fire pit, with plenty of dry wood!

House on the creek

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time at this place with some reservations. The inside of the house was fine, soft bedding, a large sectional in the den and a functional kitchen. The little porch overlooking the creek was nice unless the large diesel trucks were grinding past. There was a good bit of work going on above us on the Hiway up to Mt Evans so during the day there was alot of noise coming from the road. The creek is pretty loud and is a nice noise during the mornings and evenings, especially at night. It was much cooler than we figured but the owner told us about a thrift store in town that I found a nice Eddie Bauer long sleeved shirt for $4! Good location in relations to town, and hopefully all that roadwork will stop soon!
