Christmas at Wildeness Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Micheal, Once again thanks for your great hospitality, we enjoyed our stay at the Wilderness Cottage. It was just as enjoyable as our stay in the Sunrise Lodge in Sept. Thanks for spending the evening with us enjoying the hot chocolate and Meghan's Christmas Cookies. It looked like Meghan, our two year old Grand Daughter, really enjoyed sharing her cookies with you. We had a great Christmas there in Evergreen and look forward to coming back. I think were falling in love with the town and it's people. It was nice to come home but we sure miss our Meghan. It's never fun in the airport saying goodbye to her and Tracy even said this time Meghan started crying as they left us. She's getting older now and she realized we were leaving her. She got an Ipad from Santa so now she can Skype with us, that's cool. Thanks again for everything and we really enjoyed decorating the Cottage with Christmas lights. It made it feel homey.

Owner's Response: Rick and Michele, it was so fun to share your families Christmas visit at the Cottage. Your Grandaughter Meghens Invitiation for me to share her cookies and Hot Chocolate was one of the highlights of my 2012 Christmas. Also Enjoyed meeting Tracey and her husband and will be sure to recognize them around town. We posted your photo of the Holiday Decorated Wilderness Cottage on the VRBO listing. Will certainly look forward to seeing you all next year and once again see how much Meghan has grown. All the best for a peaceful and Abundant New Year ... Michael

Wonderful retreat!

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed this cabin with my daughters for a memorable weekend getaway. Though a tough drive for arriving at night, once there, we could appreciate the peacefulness of the cabin and the wooded setting. The owner was a pleasure to deal with before arriving with the info he provided and during the stay with everything well marked in the cabin. The two queen beds were very comfortable and we loved the Maxwell Falls hike that he had recommended! The reason I am not giving it another star as it would be even better with some additional outdoor furniture for meals and relaxing on such a great porch. And the kitchen could use some additional glasses and cookware for use with more than 2 people. It was great trip for us!

Owner's Response: To prospective travelers; we appreciate our guest taking the time to write this review. And we are pleased that they found the quality of experience we offer in our Secluded Wilderness Location. There are 5 chairs a gas grill for outdoor Bar B Q, and a table on the patio for outdoor living. We don't understand our guests observation that there is a need for more outdoor furniture when our guest only had 3 staying at the cottage. After receiving this review we inventoried the kitchen utensils and found our generous supply of 6 sets of forks knives and spoons for the Cottage which sleeps 5. Plus every possible utensil and full set of cook ware including Sauce pans, frying pans, 6 quart pasta pan, baking dishes, baking sheets and casserole dishes ( spatulas, serving spoons, 12 drinking glasses, can opener etc) We appreciate our guests writing this complimentary review but take issue with the deficiencies mentioned. We are always on site and always invite our guests to contact us if they have need. We did not receive any messages from our guest requesting additional outdoor furniture or specific missing Kitchen intensils. As to the difficulty of finding the Wilderness Cottage at night it seems that Evan thought it was perceived as difficult it was well directed by our very specific driving directions which our guest used to find the Cottage without getting lost. Using our Driving directions no one has ever gotten lost Day or night. We understand that if you are a city person navigating our rural residential mountain communities is a very unfamiliar experience when seeking lodging in a Secluded Wilderness Location We suggest you please read deep into our many guest reviews for the Wilderness Cottage Sincerely Michael -Owner

Relaxing

Everything was great!!

It is very quiet and peaceful. My only suggestions would be.I would suggest getting a deadbolt on the front door and some brighter light bulbs in the bedrooms and bathroom.

Owner's Response: D'Ann enjoyed meeting you during your stay at the Wilderness Cottage. We always appreciate our guests suggestions and try to implement the ones that are feasible. We will be putting a dead bolt on the front door and increasing the bulb wattage in the bedrooms and bath. Thank you D'Ann Sincerely Michael- Owner

Everything we had expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for our ski trip and it was great! This was our first time in Colorado and we did not get lost or confused since the cabin was so easy to find. It's about an hour drive from the Denver Airport but it's definitely worth it because of all the scenery you see on your way to the cabin. Overall, the cabin was cozy, warm and definitely worth the price! The view from the deck is AMAZING! We just loved everything about this cabin! We will definitely book again when we do go back.
