Our family loved the cottage. The cabin was , rustic and very quaint, not to mention clean and comfortable. It had a well equipped kitchen and cozy furnishings. We even had a great internet connection - which we didn't use much because of all of the nearby activities. But best of all was the deck and the river!! It was...

We look for places to spend together on extended family vacations. Because there are several different age ranges and interests, we need access to a variety of activities. But my husband and I prefer no organized activities. Loveland heights cottages was the perfect answer for us. We were treated like family and I felt comfortable right away. I do highly...

We found our cottage and surrounding area, well kempt. The Big Thompson was beautiful and soothing, and so were the sounds of the birds. All of the people we dealt with were friendly and accommodating. We had a lovely time and remember, "It's meant to be rustic".

You are exactly right, it is meant to be rustic. I cannot remember cell phones, wifi, I pads or for that matter anything but just kicking back and having a good time. We of course have wifi but for the most part our customers just relax and enjoy that beautiful river right outside their back door.

We just left Loveland Heights Cottages after a 4 day visit. We stayed in "The Treehouse". This and two other units are not directly on the site as the original cottages. It is a car drive down the road but still directly on the river. The owner acquired these 3 units a year ago and gutted it to the studs...

We had a recommendation for these from a dear friend -- and she didn't let us down. We had a great stay, enjoyed ourselves. it is not fancy - it is functional. My wife and I enjoyed the deck facing the Big Thompson river - lovely sounds to go to sleep to, and to awake to. The owner was so...

We made reservations for Cottage #18 (the oldest one, built in 1928) back in April with Bev and the communication was great from the start. With all the fires, etc. in the area, I was assured by Bev that all was safe in the area. This is exactly what our family was looking for and needed--a quiet, quaint cottage on...

My husband and I decided to stay on the Big Thompson River in Estes Park to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary, and Loveland Heights Cottages gave us exactly what we were looking for! Our rustic, one-room cabin, with full kitchen, was just perfect for the two of us (Cabin 12, the Honeymoon Cabin), and the deck outside was heaven. Right...

This was our family's first trip here. We were extremely pleased with this cozy lilltle cabin over the river! Such a clean place. Very nice staff. Only minutes from Estes park.

I have always wanted to stay in a cabin in the canyon. This totally was what I was looking for. I didn't want anything fancy. Just a cabin by the water with knotty pine panelling. It sounds corny but it was perfect. My husband and I decided to take this trip at the last minute and had my parents come...
