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.

This sweet little cottage in montrose is just what is advertised. Very comfortable for two people with great access to black canyon of the gunnison and to telluride. Very friendly owners right next door in case you need anything. Loved the fresh roses on the table!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at Rose Haven Cottage. The house is in an excellent location, in a quiet neighborhood. I made myself at home immediately. The owner is a wonderful person and very friendly and responsive. I travel often for work and it is nice to be able to come back to a home at the end of the day versus staying at a hotel.

Minimalistic but quaint

  • 4 of 5

Great location to be , close to center

Of 'downtown ' Montrose..walking or biking distance to many city locations & amenities..

House is adequate but in need of some attention/repairs

Note: no dishwasher, no washing machine on property; neighbors served as "unofficial "guides & were most helpful..owner not as available.

Owner's Response: You will be happy to know that Saturday, Wes(the neighbor you mentioned here,) and I sat down and went over the list of things you so gratiously left for me. We went over the cottage with a fine tooth comb ,so to speak,and did everything we could to bring the cottage up to your expectations and even several other touches to add to the comfort of our guests. We are sorry you were not as comfortable as you expected to be. Rose Haven is only five years old and we have never had anyone complain before. I probably shouldnt mention, you were not the cleanest guests we have ever had. The kitchen floor was filthy where coffee was spilled down the cupboard and onto the floor and not wiped up but left to dry there. And what was that sticky stuff you sprayed all over my kitchen window, and I needed to use a paint scraper get it off? We are very anxious to please our guests and make them as comfortable as possible in our simple,cozy cottage. Maybe you should choose larger more elaborate accomodations on your next visit. We do want to thank you for being our guests and it was a pleasure to meet you both. Thank you very much, Ella

The cottage is in a quiet area, yet close to the main highway.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time at the cottage. The people next door clean and handle any issues with the property. The cottage is small but was fine for two of us. It met our expectations. Good value for the price.

Excellent accommodation. Good proximity to shopping, well equipped & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was great. The cottage was perfect for our needs, had everything we needed & was very clean. We were able to walk to stores & also had easy access to routes out of town for riding & exploring. The caretaker next door was very helpful & looked after the cottage well. It's in a beautiful setting & we loved it!
