Clean, Cozy, Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed 3 nights at Fawn Trail Cottage. From booking to departure, everything was well organized and taken care of. We loved the very specific information and directions provided prior to arrival, and the easy check in/check out was a dream.

The cabin is not fancy, but it is clean and comfortable and has everything we (3 adults and one child) needed for a fun weekend in the mountains. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

We only have one small suggestion, and it made no difference to us in the slightest because we brought our own anyway, but it may be time to replace the bed pillows, getting a little flat :)

Thank you Michael for allowing us to use your cabin! We hope to book again with you soon!

Owner's Response: Danielle, thank you for your time to Submit this review. We hope Danielle's comments are helpful to prospective travelers as they search for, and make thier Lodging decisions. As to the pillows; it is always a dilemma to provide soft vs firm so we usually provide one of each for each queen bed. We have discussed this topic as a result of Danielle's Comment, and as we frequently replace pillows with new ones, we will be replacing with firm pillows. If you prefer a softer pillow we are always on site during your visit, and can bring you softer ones with a simple text request. If you are a prospective traveler looking for a pristine Wilderness Location Colorado Rocky Mountain Lodging experience, one of our 9 Evergreen Colorado Cabins & Cottages awaits you this year Sincerely Michael Your Evergreen Colorado Lodging Host

High High High @ 9000 ft & BEST OF ALL

  • 5 of 5

We did find drive a bit remote our first trip into the house, but as we ventured out daily it really was not that remote..... quiet, serene & gorgeous. I imagine in winter it is a snowy paradise.

We met friends who flew in from Phoenix & we drove out from San Diego, CA. This proved to be a great place to stay while we went to shows each of three evenings at Red Rocks about a half hour to 40 minute drive each way. Definitely much nicer than staying in Denver.

Beautiful house furnished very comfortable & very clean.

Thank you.

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Fawn Trail Cottage is a fantastic little mountain getaway, located only about 40 minutes outside of our home in downtown Denver. It's a nice balance between forested outpost and creature-comforted destination.

The amenities are nice -- wood-burning stove, rocking chairs, etc. -- and the big picture windows give you a front-row seat to the wildlife you'll often see grazing by outdoors, which our dog both loved and was filled with existential anguish about. You've got your standard kitchen with everything you'll need to cook meals from the groceries you get in town (which is a bit of a hike, but not prohibitively so). And the 3rd night free special/refundable cleaning deposit made it an absolutely fantastic deal.

Michael was super responsive and appreciative when we called to ask questions, and really encourages folks to reach out. One of the first things you'll notice is that there are indeed a LOT of instructional signs around -- it's a bit quirky, until you realize that they're probably there because people have done things to necessitate them (kind of like how McDonald's now has to state the obvious on their coffee cups that 'contents inside are very hot').

One of the things we were a little wary about was the 4WD vehicle disclaimer, but we managed just fine in our 2WD outfitted with new tires. If there was any more than a couple inches of snow or substantial rain I'd probably advise against it, but check the forecast (and if there is precipitation, just plan accordingly). There is a fair amount of driving on a steep grade, a few miles of which is on a (maintained) dirt road; Michael did offer to plow if there had been more snow, which just goes to show his conscientiousness of taking care of guests and the property.

It seems like the scant number of negative reviews were for folks expecting -- I don't know, a Ritz-Carlton white-glove experience or something. Personally, I'm happy to do a little bit of picking up/cleaning after ourselves to get a cleaning deposit credit. For a forested getaway, this definitely exceeded our expectations -- it's in a beautiful location, and was exactly the nature-driven recharge we were looking for. We'll absolutely be back.
