We wanted to get away from Denver for a couple of days. My husband found this "resort" online. We made the mistake of booking before we looked at TripAdvisor. We knew it was a rustic cabin, and we weren't expecting a 4-star experience. We enjoy small quaint rustic cabins and were looking forward to our trip. However, when we arrived...

We arrived with 14 people, 12 horses and 8 dogs! The "girls" shared a big cabin, couples shared other cabins, my husband and I stayed in the motel, so we experienced most of the accommodations. They are a combination of old, dated and charming, pretty old ranch Colorado. We had a great group dinner at the restaurant (cafe) with an...

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, go somewhere else. However, if you're traveling to see Colorado for what it really is, stay here. While the accomodations are a bit "dated", they are perfectly suitable. The real experience here is the wildlife. While staying, we were fortunate to see plenty of bear, hummingbirds, chipmunks, deer, etc. and rowing on...

If anyone has traveled I-70 by Dotsero you know how desolate this area is. Approxminately 17 North is this wonderful little resort. It's dog friendly, clean, owners are very friendly and relaxed. It has a motel that has 4 units (we stayed in one of these) and about 6 cabins. The motel and cabins are very old and don't look...

We have traveled to Sweetwater lake for weekend getaways for 4 years now. It is very unique in todays life of cell phones and constant noise. At sweetwater lake, you will not find that. Our favorite activity is the row boats. The hummingbirds are very entertaining. And the simplicity makes you not want to leave. My wife has a busy...

We had the best time there and rented the Gregg cabin. There were so many creative touches sewn into the character of this cabin. It was warm and cozy. To me, it felt like my grandmother's home when I was young and it was a very happy place to live in the three days we were there. The kids found...
