Great location and accommodations for a family trip to Rocky Mountain National Park

We recently stayed in one of the cabins on a family vacation with our pre-teen children during our recent trip to Estes Park and Rocky National Park. The cabin was clean, unique, charming and contained everything we needed for our stay. It was rustic, yet had all of the modern conveniences desired by “non-campers.” The private hot tub was perfect after a day of hiking. Convenient location and helpful, accommodating staff.

Great place to stay

This is our favorite place to stay. We have stayed in the motel, in a rental house, but this time we chose one of the cabins. It was clean and just the right size for us. We saw elk on the property the last two days of our visit, with a bull showing up the last day. My grand daughter loved it
