About Ella Marolf

Everett and Ella Marolf live in the mountains west of Montrose.

They raised two daughters and have enjoyed their three grandsons at their home every summer.

Everett has been a rancher and heavy equiptment operator and Ella is an artist and well known in the area for her sculptures.

They have been married for over 56years.

Ella Marolf purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Ella Marolf chose Southwestern Colorado

We have just recently completely restored this littlle house. Everything is new and chosen to be cheery and easy to care for.

There is a tiny Patio, that is cool in the evening.

It was created especially to be a home away from home for our guest. We hope you will come and stay, and enjoy our beautiful area.

We have made it a complete home on a small scale. We are sorry wecouldnt squeeze in a washer and dryer into our tiny space, but there are Laundromats close by.

What makes this cottage unique

Rose Haven Cottage is in a quiet neighborhood, and is close to many of Montrose's attractions, and businesses. The Hospital and Cancer Center are only 5 blocks away. It is only 8 blocks from downtown.The Library and Collage and Pool are close by as well. One Movie theater and Local theater are in the area as well.Another movie is only a short drive East .There is even a Drive In Movie if you are nostalgic.

The Cottage has new Hardwood floors and tile.

Trash service every Thursday.

You are only less than an hour from the Colorful towns of Telluride and Ouray and the Scenic San Juan Mountains. Day trips can be included to Black Canyon,Silverton and Durango and Mesa Verde, as well as the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction.

There is wonderful mountain biking, and a club in town who organizes trips. a bike train on our block.

You can stay in the winter and ski , go ice climbing or just watch. Hiking or just sight seeing.

At the present time there is being built a wonderful new Recreation Center.I will include more on that at a later date.

There are Golf courses near by and a walking and bike path. .

Dont forget the Hot Springs Pool in Ouray. See my Photos.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(8 traveler reviews)

Rose Haven Cottage is a small comfortable home. In the Heart of Montrose.
average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews

Clean, comfortable, quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to stay while exploring everything around Montrose! After a long day of hiking Black Canyon, this cottage was a perfect place to come back to to shower off the trail dust, maybe catch a movie at the drive-in, grab a steak at The Stone House, and then get some rest in a comfortable bed.

The location is great, and the neighborhood is quiet.

We celebrated our 20th anniversary here, and had a great time!

Cozy and convenient, for walking around town, and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

From the very beginning we felt at home in this darling cottage. Glass french doors into the bedroom was a charming touch.

Tiny but complete kitchen, easy to work in. Good shower in the bathroom was appreciated.

Rose Haven Cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage on a quiet street. Great location; close to grocery store and downtown Montrose. Everything you need for a short or extended stay is there. We were there in July and even with no AC the house stayed remarkably cool during the day if we closed it up before leaving. Great place to stay while enjoying all the area has to offer!

excellent location, wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Rose Haven Cottage for the month. It was so close to everything . The downtown area had enough cafe's and shops to serve our dining needs. The proximity to the Nat'l Park as well as resort areas made it easy to access. The neighborhood was quiet and secure so no need to worry. The owners have a neighbor who is more than willing to help with any directions or needs that may arise. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Charming cottage in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this darling little cottage.

The neighborhood is quiet and the location is great. There’s a grocery store just 3 blocks away, and the historic downtown is only about a mile away.

We discovered the amazing Black Canyon of the Gunnison about 11 miles from Montrose and the Colorado National Monument is only about an hour’s drive away.

We will definitely return if we are ever in this area again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review of Rose Haven Cottage! We do so appreciate it and tha time you took . We are happy you enjoyed your stay in our lovely friendly town. Glad you were able to see my sculptures on display as well. I have been a member of PAX public art experience for several and it is a great venue for people to view local artist sculptures. Hope you will come again! Ella and Everatt

Sweet Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Rose Haven Cottage is located is about 8 blocks north of downtown Montrose - not far at all from restaurants and stores. Neighborhood was pleasant and quiet - most evening's we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and to the downtown area.

The cottage was the perfect size for my husband and I and was quite clean and very well maintained. The kitchen was not large, but well set up for cooking when we wanted to eat in.

Montrose is located in high desert on the western range and there are many options for day trips - Ouray, Telluride, Grand Mesa, Colorado National Monument, and Gunnison Gorge are just a few of the places we were able to visit. I'd definitely stay at the cottage again ... we stayed 9 days, and there are still many things left for us to see and do!
