Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of travel it was a wonderful surprise to stay at The Writers Nest in Evergreen CO. We found it to be a refreshing change from hotels. Quiet, clean, and enjoyed meeting Michael when he dropped by to welcome us. Though it rained most of our stay it was still a peaceful relaxing visit. Be sure to only use the directions Michael gives as it is a tricky drive to the property. We'd love to stay again the next time we are there.

Owner's Response: Craig & Susan thank you for your time to write this very gracious review. I enjoyed meeting you both and am so sorry that rain was the dominant weather during your stay. It is rare that we experience daily rain in our dry climate. We do hope you will consider staying with us on your next trip to visit family in the Denver Metro area Sincerely Michael - Owner

Christmas in Evergreen

No joke about needing 4 wheel drive vehicle to enjoy the beautiful Writers Nest. We saw lots of wildlife and incredible sunrises while enjoying coffee every morning. Michael is a dream of a host!

Owner's Response: Clarification You only need a 4 Wheel Drive During Snow storm conditions in Winter. All other times Your 2/front wheel drive is just fine. Respectfully MICHAEL

Beautiful property with views that are absolutely stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Wake up early at least one of your mornings to watch the incredible sunrise over the mountains. We got up early every morning just to watch it. The Writers Nest is a great getaway if you want privacy and a great view with wonderful accommodations. Thank you so much for a perfect weekend!

Quiet, peaceful and relaxing mountain getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very relaxing and you can't beat the beautiful views. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck having our morning coffee and listening to the sound of the stream below. The property was small ,but well organized, clean and instructions for everything. The road getting to the property was steep in spots and pretty rough toward the end. I would recommend a vehicle with a fair amount of ground clearance. Overall we enjoyed our relaxing stay at the writers nest.

Michael makes sure you are comfortable and brings personality into the experience with a friendly greeting and sharing helpful info about the entire region. The writers nest sits almost atop the trees with wonderful views and peace and quiet. All of your needs are at your finger tip and the area is full of hiking and other mountain activities to fit your needs.
