It was great staying here. We got more than we expected. Complimentary firewood (1 bundle) and kitchen tools we forgot to bring were available for use. The location was also very close to Beaver Meadows Entrance making it very convenient for hiking. Owners were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here in the Bluebird duplex 2 years ago, and it was great. However, this time we stayed in the Timberline. I expected small, but the carpet was soiled, the bed was uneven, and the shower and bath were so small, I couldnt dry off in the bathroom!! The outside paint was peeling, but the mountain views were amazing.

Hi Donna! Timberline is our oldest and smallest unit. It's from 1914, and it's quite popular with hikers and people looking to "rough it." We tried to keep Timberline in its original form: as an old miner's cabin. It sounds like you had a great experience with the Bluebird duplex. I encourage you to try our other units again since...

Colorado Cottages was a pleasant surprise on our vacation. We found out about it online and made a last-minute reservation. The owners/managers were very sweet and accommodating. We had a wonderful and peaceful stay while we were in Estes Park. I would recommend it to anyone.

The Colorado cottages in Estes Park is one of the areas best value in lodging. The cottages are very clean and very well appointed. They may not be the newest cottages, but they are very well kept and John and Carolyn as well as their golden retriever go out of their way to make your stay the best. I have...

We really enjoyed our stay at Colorado Cottages. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. We were in the Bluebird and it was very clean (very important to me) and comfortable. The cottages are extremely convenient to Rocky Mountain National Park. After a full day in the park, it was nice to come "home" to the cozy cottage where we...

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to a nice stay and we were not disappointed. Even more clean, cozy, and quiet then I imagined. Jarod and Kim are fantastic hosts and we are looking forward to going back there very soon!

We love Colorado Cottages!!! We discovered them a few years ago and have returned often enough to have stayed in 9 of their 11 cottages, some multiple times. We love them all - each is unique and special. Four thumbs way up (five Trip Advisor bubbles)! Great Location #1: Very close to the main gate of Rocky Mtn. N.P. -...

We've stayed several times here, and we love the combination of location, views and cabin features. We're going back in June 2015' and we look forward to meeting the new owners. We very much enjoyed interacting with the previous owners (and Dharma).

The cottage we stayed in"chickadee " is a gem. Fireplace small kitchen and even a smaller bathroom. This all makes sense in a cottage. The elk the coyotes and the deer are all around.
