The Aspen cabin was a wonderful place for our father & son weekend. My son loved that we could see mule deer on the property, as well as down the hill, and seeing the mountains out the windows in the morning was an awesome experience for a nine year old from Nebraska! It was a very cozy - NOT small...

Stayed here during the winter to attend a wedding. The location is out of the way from the crowd of town but close enough to run errands and pick up stuff. My son ended up plugging the toilet in the later evening, and the owner responded and helped rather quickly for a weekend evening.

I have been going to River Rock cottages for years now, it is my go to place when visiting Estes. I have stayed in different cottages several times and have found all the cottages to be clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The beds are always comfortable and the cottages warm and cozy. I am a sewing/knitter and I love to...

We stay at River Rock Cottages every Christmas and sometimes in the summer when we can leave our hometown of Los Angeles. There is nothing like a white Christmas! Carolyn and Terry, the owners, always welcome us back with top accommodations and friendly service. There's nothing like a family ran business to enjoy the holidays or as a vacation destination....

Very pretty, beds were comfy, however treated badly by owners. I should have stayed at Brynwood on the river. Oh well, next time! The owner ran off the elk, I was there to see the elk! I hope these people hire staff to host so no one has to experience the rude, fakeness that we saw. :(

It’s disappointing you’ve chosen to handle our encounter with negative reviews of our cottages on various sites. This review is not reflective of the situation. You are a traveling nurse working at the Estes Park Medical Center and needed lodging for about 3 months. It is very difficult to find this type of lodging in Estes Park and we try...

I nearly fell over when we learned these cottages are over 8 years old because they are kept in pristine condition! The owners are lovely and clearly care about their property and the guests experience. This is the perfect location for walking to town too. We'll be back!

Wow! You just made our day! We're so glad you enjoyed our cottage and that we made you feel welcome. That's obviously our goal! Pleased that you took advantage of our location and walked to town. We live in the back of the property and walk everywhere ourselves. Thank you and see you next time! ~Carolyn

This was our second time staying at River Rock Cottages and it did not disappoint. The cabins are clean comfortable and well maintained. There was plenty of room for our family of 4. We also enjoyed watching the resident mule deer. It was convenient to be able to walk into town. We will stay here again!

Great location in Estes Park. We walked to town, unfortunately very little was still open at 7 on a Wednesday, mostly candy shops. We stayed in Fern Lake and it was very cute - equipped with wifi so we could watch netflix. The beds were pretty comfortable although the bedrooms were pretty small. There was a nice little kitchen.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! We're so pleased you enjoyed our location and our Fern Lake Cottage. We are starting to get into our winter months and many of the shops downtown start closing earlier in the evening. It bums me out too as I love to wander through our downtown shops. Hope you come...

I stayed in Chickadee in October. Carolyn & Terry and their son Jess are very nice and immediately made us feel welcome. The cottage was very clean, cute and updated! The furniture was comfortable. I liked the Estes Park guidebook the owners put together. The grounds have picnic tables and a fire pit. It's a short walk to downtown. Will...

The Cabins are very well kept and clean. These cabins have the latest amenities. The Beds were very comfortable. They are within walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants. The owners (Terry) are very nice and respect your privacy. If I could help anyone with a decision, I would say that if your looking for views, do not stay here....
