Fantastic cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at the Writers Nest before heading into Denver. We were thoroughly satisfied with every aspect of our stay. The cabin is secluded and in immaculate condition. The location (15 mins. up the mountain from Evergreen) is perfect for adventure seekers, sightseers or couples looking for a quiet getaway. The sunrise over the mountains every morning was absolutely breathtaking and the serenity of sitting on the deck and enjoying the cool Rocky Mountain air every evening at dusk was fabulous. Michael was a great host. He was quick to offer restaurant suggestions and even took the time to map out driving direction (the scenic route) for our journey to Pikes Peak. We also spent a few minutes talking about our shared passion for baseball.
All in all, it was a fantastic 3 day stay and I would strongly recommend the Writers Nest (or any of Michael's other properties) for anyone looking to enjoy the true beauty of the Rocky Mtns. UNFORGETTABLE!

Wonderful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time visiting Colorado, and we came for a concert at Red Rock Amphitheatre. The Writer's Nest was the perfect location as we were centrally located for many sightseeing trips. Michael was more than accomodating, and offered great suggestions for restaurants and points of interest. We loved the charm of the cabin, and marveled at the views, especially the sun peeking over the mountain in the mornings, and the stars at night. This cabin is the perfect getaway for any couple, and the beauty of the surrounding area will leave you wanting to return. Thank you Michael !!!

Not the best choice for us

  • 3 of 5
The cabin is true to its description and the photographs are accurate. It is a cozy retreat with a great view (if you have clear weather). Prior to checking in here we spent several days in a cottage right in the town of Evergreen. We really enjoyed the charming "downtown" area and being able to walk to restaurants, shops and the beautiful lake. So, while at Writer's Nest we missed the proximity to these attractions. We were also hesitant to go out at night since we didn't want to navigate the steep ride up to the cabin in the dark.

Over the years my husband and I have rented numerous cottages in the US and other countries, Often we've paid security deposits and/or cleaning fees. I was, however, unfamiliar with the term cleaning deposit. In fairness the website clearly states that this deposit is refunded if you leave the cabin as you found it. I thought this meant don't spill red wine on the carpet, don't break anything, etc. It wasn't until we arrived and my husband saw the chore list posted on the wall that we understood what was required to get our refund. We are respectful guests and always leave rentals tidy & in good shape -- but we don't clean bathroom fixtures, change bed linens, vacuum, run a load of laundry, etc. The chore list notes that you can forgo cleaning (and your refund) by letting them know in advance. After pondering this for a day or two (not something I want to think about while on vacation) we notified the owner and forfeited our deposit. We had an early flight out of Denver and I just didn't see myself getting up even earlier to scrub the bathtub. I accept responsibility for not requesting more information about the deposit before confirming our reservation. We rely on reviews to help us make travel choices. So, it is in the spirit of being helpful to other travelers that I am sharing our experience.

Owner's Response: Dear Carol, We appreciate your time taken to Compose this thoughtful review. If you are prospective traveler we encourage you to read deep into our many 5 star reviews about the Writers Nest.
We respectfully take issue with the 2 negative observations about this guest's lodging experienced at the Writers Nest.
First-The Optional Housekeeping Deposit; If you have shopped for, or stayed at, VRBO and Homeaway listed Vacation homes you have discovered that most Vacation Homeowners charge a non- negotiable $75 to $150 Cleaning/housekeeping fee. We offer an optional 100% refundable housekeeping deposit that is credited back to your credit card "When the Home is left the Way you found it at Check in" As our guest, you can decide to tidy up behind yourself or choose to have us retain your Housekeeping deposit. To date, during 2014 we have had only 2 guests in our 9 Evergreen Colorado VRBO and Homeaway listed Vacation Homes request that we keep their Housekeeping Deposits. Furthermore our very well accepted optional housekeeping deposit return system is clearly communicated in the VRBO listing, and in the reservation documents that are sent to our guests by email upon reservation confirmation. So we take issue with this guest claiming they knew nothing of our optional housekeeping deposit return agreement until they arrived at the Writers Nest. And guests are not required to do Laundry.
Second-Distance to Downtown Evergreen; The distance to Downtown Evergreen for all of our 9 Evergreen Colorado VRBO and Homeaway listed Vacation homes is 8 miles. This information is clearly described in the VRBO and/or Homeaway listings, clearly depicted on the listing location Google Maps and fully described in detail on the "Driving Directions" provided to all guest in their Reservation Confirmation Documents. Again we take issue with this guests claim that they did not know in advance, the location of the Writers Nest. Our 9 Vacation Homes are in a pristine Wilderness location 8 MILES FROM DOWNTOWN EVERGREEN where guests Cannot.. "WALK TO TO TOWN TO SHOP" We appreciate this guest pointing out this item. If you are a prospective guest who, like this guest, would prefer a more urban, non secluded, vacation home lodging experience our 9 Wilderness Location Evergreen Colorado Vacation Homes would not be for you.
For a complete discussion of these issues or any other topics please call or email us any time
Respectfully Michael

Perfect for a Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Writers Nest after three days of vacationing in Denver. We wanted something in the mountains that was quiet and secluded. We had spent several nights earlier in a hotel in Commerce City (attended a concert at Dicks Sporting Good Arena) and wanted to get away from the city before returning home to Pittsburgh, Pa. This place was perfect for us. Our host, Michael, was very friendly. He stopped by briefly to make sure we were happy and settled in. The house is beautiful. We couldn't have asked for a better place. We hiked during the day, cooked our own meals and relaxed on the porch for sunrise and sunset. Breathtaking view! Supermarket and town only 15-20mins down the mountain and plenty of hiking near by. So much better than a hotel. Would recommend this to anyone that is looking to relax and get away from it all. A good car is recommended as the road is not paved towards the top of the mountain and is very steep. We will be back!

Happy couple

  • 5 of 5
Awesome! Just awesome! Private; quiet; very clean; amazing views; great landlord. My wife and I wanted a few days away from the hustle and bustle, and we found the perfect spot! If you want solitude with all the modern conveniences (including wireless), this is the place! 10 minutes west of Evergreen; we will be back!
