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

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

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

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!

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

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.
Wonderful mountain views, proximity to down town Estes Park, comfortable interior. Commercial grade wireless wi fi and complimentary laundry facilities on site.
