Property's Favourite Review
We happened upon Hillside cottages and we couldn’t have been happier for our restful and authentic Colorado escape. The cabin (Knack for Nature) was just perfect for the two of us and our pooch. The kitchenette was fully stocked and offered all we needed plus a little welcome basket! We arrived in a snowstorm so we weren’t able to make our hike, however exploring Canon City and the gorge along with a drive through Westcliff gave us a pleasant feel for this part of our state. And beautiful it is!!! Looking forward to a return in the spring. And, the Hillside history and how these building have been preserved is incredible. Thanks!!

We stayed only one night and I wish it had been longer. Our quaint little cottage had everything we needed and more, it was really clean and well equipped. Be prepared with your food and beverages as the beauty of this place is that it’s not really close to anything which was just what we wanted. The stars in this dark sky area were amazing! I would love to go back.

We had a really fun time using Splendid Vista as our base for exploring the Sangre de Christo Mountains and the Wet Mountain Valley. Not only did we enjoy the area, but because we stayed in Hillside we enjoyed their beautiful grounds and spent a number of afternoons enjoying the gardens, outdoor games and willow grove. Lucky to have stayed and we would recommend it highly.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Colorado from Oregon and Virginia to spend some time together after many months apart due to COVID-19. We just wanted to be in a quiet place where we could relax and enjoy nature's beauty.  Hillside Cottages was EXACTLY what we were hoping for. This serene and beautiful oasis is nearby the Arkansas River and the drive there along the river was breathtaking. Sunrise and sunset on this property are so lovely but the real gem is the night sky. SO many stars! We lucked out and happened to be there during a meteor shower. What a treat. The adirondack chairs outside our cabin (Mountain Marvel) provided us with the perfect stargazing spot. The bed was surprisingly comfortable as well. We made a few meals in the little kitchenette and one on the grill. We also enjoyed a few meals in the nearby towns. We highly recommend Nirvana Culinary Paradise in Canon City for those who enjoy indian cuisine. If you are looking for peaceful getaway, this is definitely the place for you.

My husband and I stayed two nights to hike in the area. It is very close to the rainbow lakes trail and other trails in Westcliffe. The cabin itself is very tastefully designed And comfortable. The shower is great! Cooking in was very convenient as was the grill outside in the beautiful garden. The stars were strikingly beautiful at night! Cell reception was difficult in the cabin and the road is not far away, but I was not there to use my devices and the setting was set back enough to not really see the cars. I very much enjoyed the stay and would return!!
