Aspen Cottage was really clean and nicely furnished with new fixtures and furniture. Maybe my mistake for not clarifying, but I was disappointed to discover that the king bed and queen sofa bed were all in the same room, which was not ideal for us to share with my 20-year old son. The outdoor area was nice, with tables and...

We appreciate your time in sharing your experience at our Aspen Cottage! Really happy that you found the cottage clean and you enjoyed our new furniture and fixtures. Both the king bed and the queen sleeper sofa are new this year. We're sorry that you didn't realize this was a studio layout prior to booking. Never fun when your experience...

My boyfriend and I stayed at River Rock Cottages for three nights, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to be for our hiking trip! The cottage was cute, clean, and comfortable. A real home away from home! It's only 4 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park (some of the best hiking we've experienced so far!) and a...

This was our second stay at River Rock Cottages. The cottages are clean and comfortable. We love being within walking distance of downtown and the grocery store. The fully furnished kitchen and dining room make it simple to enjoy meals or snacks if you choose to stay in. (We enjoyed breakfast in the cabin before heading out for the day)....

Easy walk to restaurants and shops in town. Great views of the mountains, Longs Peak, the Twin Owls and many more. Spotlessly clean cabin. Friendly but not intrusive host. Saw elk in neighbors yard. Cozy.

Our group of five (father, his wife, self, two sons) stayed here for two nights. Walking in was a pleasant surprise, as the living/dining area was quite spacious, and the cottage was very clean. The bedroom had a walk in closet which was helpful for storing my sons' bags, as they slept on the pull out sofa. We used all...

My friends and I traveled to Estes Park for the Rocky Mountain Half Marathon and were very impressed with our accommodations. The cottage is clean, nicely designed, and just a couple minutes from downtown Estes Park. Great communication from the owners made this a perfect place to stay. Thanks again!

The cabins on this property are very lovely. They are roomy and very clean. However, I found the owners to be a bit uptight and made me and my guests feel uncomfortable and on edge. When we arrived there was a note on the refrigerator which went over the check in and check out - basic policy information. At the...
