“God's hidden place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2010

Over the past year and a half we have stayed in this wonderful hideaway. We have had the pleasure to stay in the Hollyhock House, the Poppy House, and the Honeymoon House. The staff is always ready to fill any need we may have and do it with a smile. Future plans are to stay in the Mountain Home with friends from Fort Worth. Can't Wait!

Our family stayed in the "mountain home" cabin at Amberwood over the elk festival. The property owners were extremely polite and helpful and the cabin was meticulously spotless! If we are ever in the area again we would choose amberwood.

This place is PURE HEAVEN!!! Just 5mins away from the Estes Park hub, it's adequately secluded but quite accessible to the post office, restaurants, gift shops, hiking trails and more. The owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating but they also respect one's privacy as needed. There's a playground for kids but adults can also tap the child in them in the swings, slide and sand box. The cabin is clean and well maintained at no extra charge. Elk roam around freely and the vista is breathtaking! We vow to rent a cabin here every year after such an awesome experience!

After reading so many positive reviews, I was really surprised at the Grand Lodge. I was expecting a cozy, relaxing retreat, and instead, could not wait to go home. It was so disappointing to be in beautiful nature and hear non-stop traffic noise.

Rooms:
-Tiny with barely any room for suitcases (if you have a sleeper sofa, you have to arrange it sideways just to use it and cannot access one side of the room)
-Beds are not comfortable
-Two downstairs bedrooms have no windows
-Upstairs rooms have really small private bathrooms with no place to put a toiletry case besides the top of the toilet.

The grand room has horrible fluorescent lighting and wall-to-wall green carpet that would be so much better if it were wood flooring.

The layout of the bathrooms is strange. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with private bathrooms, so you have to walk through someone's bedroom to access it. Downstairs has three bedrooms without private bathrooms, but two side by side bathrooms instead.

An outside fire pit would be a great addition.

RMNPOK, Manager at Amberwood, responded to this review, 28 September 2010
We did not know this guest was unhappy. The believe the person making the review was not the one who made the reservation but one of the 22 folks attending the gathering. Evidently this person did not research our place like the one who made the reservation.
We have a full description of amenities on our web site including number of bedrooms and number of bathrooms plus pictures of the inside and outside of the Lodge including bedrooms and the 4 bathrooms. We have had Amberwood for 38 years and have had no complaints about the lighting or beds. We upgrade mattresses periodically and we have fan lights across the ceiling with individual slider switches. We also have fluorescent lights built into the ceiling switched separately as we have scrap booking and other folks who require additional lighting. The Lodge is set back about 150 - 200 feet from the highway and we have had no complaints about road noise. I believe this person wanted a lodge with bathrooms in each bedroom and maybe a 5 star place. We are sorry she was not happy staying with us.

My wife and I along with 4 teenagers stayed at the Columbine Cabin for 4 nights and it was a great stay. The place is very well cared for with no unwelcome smells or sights...felt like a friend's cabin rather that a rental. Newly remodeled bathroom was dandy.

The owners were super nice folks and were at the ready to help with anything. This included getting us back in the cabin when we locked ourselves out! After using the charcoal grill one night for dinner, the ashes were magically gone by the next evening. And yes, we also saw the Black Bear getting into the dumpster one evening, the teens thought that was the best thing ever.

The location is a scenic road halfway between RMNP and the somewhat over-busy Estes Park town. Perfect for our daily excursions into the park. I guess my only complaint was the lack of more (or larger windows) int the cabin. This made it hard to bring in the cool night air (after the warm afternoons heated up the place) and you can't see the beautiful outdoors as easily as you might like. But, I would retun since this was a great value and very well run.
