What a quaint cottage with A SUPER MARVELOUS VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS! We loved sitting on the deck just looking and looking. The inside facilities were very complete-so we had a super enjoyable stay! Thanks for helping us relax and renew our energies. Perhaps we will see you again. Dan and Ardie, Ames, Iowa

July 28-August 11, 2012

We very much enjoyed our stay here in this lovely cottage. The location was perfect and the views amazing. After a long day of hiking it was so nice to come “home” to such comfortable accommodations. Favorite hikes: Easy-The Pool, Moderate-Deer Mountain Summit, Difficult-Andrews Glacier (so worth it!) We love Estes Park and we’re planning to return as often as possible. Thank you to Jim and Lois for your kindness and hospitality. Joanne and David, Holmes Beach, Florida

Sept 8-12 2012

What a perfect home away from home. The location is perfect for trips to RMNP and town. Anybody up for a gorgeous yet challenging hike should check out Sky pond. Last night here we went to Sundeck for poached trout since Larry caught seven trout in the catch and release area today. We would definitely stay here again. Someday we would like to try it in the winter for snow shoeing. Right now the elk are bugling and this feels a little bit like heaven. Sandy and Larry

Sept 29-Oct 4 2012

It has been so lovely to have this “home” away from home. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage could not be more perfect, but the best part of it all was the delightful and accommodating Lois and Jim! Thank you ever so much, Monya P.S. The kids are already planning their return!

Oct 8-13, 2012

Wonderful stay in a relaxing and homey cottage. We loved our stay and felt rejuvenated by the mountains, clean air and bubbling streams. We hope to come again. We could not ask for a better vacation. Amy, Phil and Taras, Boston

''This was the perfect location for our first vacation with our 10 month old son. The proximity to RMNP and the downtown were excellent features of the cottage. We enjoyed breakfast at Molly B's, pizza from Poppy's, Sweet Basillico's was excellent (and very close) and the Donut Haus was a perfect sweet start to a morning. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed ours!'' A Family from Detroit.

''We don't want to leave. The snow is on the mountains and we've had a wonderful time hiking, exploring, and relaxing! We'll be back. Thanks for all the suggestions. It has made it really enjoyable. We've felt at home here.'' A Family from Austin

Guest comments from August 2009:

''We could not have had a better place to stay during our visit to Estes Park. Our cottage was warm and homey with everything we needed provided for us. Thank you so much for providing such a clean and lovely place to visit.

We certainly hope to come back.'' Roberts Family

''The cottage was perfect. Thanks to Jim for helping us start the camp fire. The views from the deck were spectacular. We loved the location too- not too close to tge ''busy streets'' and a also a very private feel.'' Chalpala Family

''Thank you for a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. What an incredible setting to wake up to each morning.'' Hendrickson Family

''The setting for your home is wonderful. My family had a fantastic time while visiting Estes Park. Your facilities were very warm and comfortable, much like home. We enjoyed the views of wildflife(bears and deer) and snowcapped mountains while sitting on the deck.'' Davis Family

Guest comment from September 2008:

''We loved the place! It was perfect! Clean, homey and quaint with everything one needs....and a great location. I would have been happy just sitting on that deck staring at the view all day. We cannot wait to come back to your place.

About Jim and Lois Gunlicks

As youngsters both of our families spent vacations in the mountains. I worked in Estes Park one summer in high school and two in college. Because we loved Estes Park so much, Lois and I bought our first vacation home here ten years ago. After spending two summers in a condo, we decided to make the plunge into the bed and breakfast business. Being a career military couple, we knew we enjoyed entertaining people. We bought the adjacent Davis Hill Band B (Davis Hill Historic House), the oldest in Estes Park, in 2006. We are from Nebraska where Lois grew up on a farm with a big family so making breakfasts and beds was a part of life. Davis Hill B and B came with this lovely modern cottage which we recognized as a great rental asset because of the location providing gorgeous views and the design for easy living. Guests often rent the entire B&B and this cottage together for large family reunions and weddings.(When they rent the entire B&B they have have full access to the kitchen to prepare their own meals.) Managing these properties is a wonderful retirement activity for us because of the terrific people we meet and the beautiful surroundings. During the summer season we reside in an owner's suite below the cottage where we act as caretakers of the property and are available to answer questions.

Jim and Lois Gunlicks purchased this cottage in 2006

Excellent cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first VRBO and we were very happy with our choice. We have stayed in other condo communities further west of town several times but this by far was the most convenient. We could walk to town very easily on a daily basis (sometimes more than once a day). We loved the amenities of being "at home" and cooking/grilling when we wanted to. Jim and Lois were wonderful hosts. Super down to earth and were available if we needed them but never intruded upon us. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely consider this cottage again in the future should we find ourselves back in Estes! Thank you Jim & Lois!

Perfect small rental!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at the cottage while in Estes for a wedding. The cottage location was perfect! We walked the few blocks downtown daily and loved not having to find parking in the downtown area. The cottage had all the amenities of home and more. It was well stocked with linen, dishes, washer and dryer access, books and games, T.V., and stunning mountain views. It was so spotless that our young children (ages 2 months and 3 years old) could play on the floor. We loved our time in Colorado and the cottage was perfect for a small family. We will try to stay here again should we return to Estes Park.

Picturesque, quiet, clean, convenient, modern.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage for 3 nights Sept 2013. The cottage was clean, quiet, modern and had every convenience. It also boasted some spectacular mountain views, especially from the deck. Very easy access to the national park and walking distance to down town Estes Park. IMO, very good value. Absolutely no issues. We plan to stay there again on our return in the not-too-distant future!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I stayed in this wonderful cottage with a great view of Logan Peak. It was perfectly located for getting into Rocky Mountain National Park in short order. It was tastefully decorated and the fully stocked kitchen made it easy to prepare the evening meals. We even entertained a couple from Denver, friends of our daughter. It was great to hear that they had no damage from the floods which happened the week after we visited. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone who wants a quiet place but still be close to all the action in downtown Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Quiet, Great Location.

  • 4 of 5
This was our first visit to Estes Park and we loved it. We arrived just before the tourist season. The village was not crowded and there were elk all over the place. It was very cool to sit on the from deck and watch elk grazing several yards away. The cottage itself was clean and comfortable. It was the perfect size for my wife and I. The location was excellent. We were there before the flooding and were happy to hear that the cottage was not damaged and that Estes Park was up and running again. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Great, Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend, and it was wonderful. The owners are really nice and welcoming without being instrusive. It's clean and well kept with everything you may need in the way of kitchen items, linens and towels, and extras like dish soap and paper towels. The cottage is a great place to stay if you want to be within walking distance to downtown Estes Park without all the crowds. We definitely would stay here again on our next trip to Estes Park. Thank you Jim and Lois!!
