Great retreat in the Colorado foothills!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so warm and cozy with lots of thoughtful touches like lap blankets for if you get cool in the nice Colorado cooler evenings. Judith and Richard are so helpful and this cottage is so well equipped we really enjoyed our stay complete with a lovely deck, birdseed, and a bird identification book. It is tucked away on a hillside so one feels like you have this area all to one's self.

Awesome getaway! We plan to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great getaway for our family, not too far from Denver. Wonderful hosts! The cottage is clean, cozy and the African decor was fun. We enjoyed the deck and the property, with lots of places to hang out. It is just far enough out of town to feel remote, but not a bad drive. Woke up each morning to deer grazing in the yard. Great price too; we plan to stay again someday!

Good... Can easily be made great!

  • 4 of 5

Overall it is a very nice setting. The owners live on the property and are some of the kiddest people I've ever met. Is there room to grow? Yes!

1). More bath towels than two for a four night stay.

2). The wifi was terrible. Might as well have been non-existent.

3). No washer/dryer

4) Bed was small.

These are small fixes that would go a long way to improve the overall stay. With that said it was an amazingly nice cabin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind suggestions. Sorry you didn't see the other 4 sets of towels in the wicker drawers in the bathroom?? The bed is queen size?? You might be referring to the futon which is 3/4 to full size for only one adult or two small children......that is why we limit our guests to only 3. As far as no washer/dryer, our cottage is a summer home and we have stated the absence of these on our website. We do, however, provide information about the laundromat in the nearby town of Bailey (5 mikes away). WIFI can be less than perfect here in the mountains outside city amenities. Tecnology! We will relocate our router to achieve better results. We usually keep our smart phone on 4G for the speed instead of slower wifi. However, we are so happy your stay was fun and you found the cottage amazingly nice. It's truly our labor of love. Looking forward to your return visit. Judith and Richard

Quiet and quaint

  • 5 of 5

Idyllic get away, only an hour from downtown Denver, lovingly decorated, perfectly suited for a few days of rest in privacy in a quiet and cozy atmosphere .

Full kitchen with everything you need. If you don't want to drive 13 miles to the next town for shopping, it's advisable to bring all groceries etc. with you......there is a huge fridge!!

Hidden Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Tucan Cottage exceeded our expectations, beautifully decorated, extremely clean, exactly as advertised.

Our schedule did not allow to spend much time enjoying the cottage, basically was just to sleep this time. Looking forward for the next visit with a more flexible schedule.

This cozy cabin is a fantastic place to getaway for the weekend.

Judith is very friendly and provided all needed details for a nice stay.

beautiful view, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

the pictures can't show how beautiful is this place. you have to be there and see it by your own. we felt like we were the only one on this mountain. the cottage is very clean, nice set up. thanks to Judith and Richard. she surprised us with a small gift for our 10th anniversary. Judith recommended riverbend restaurant. i love the view of this small restaurant. eating and listening to the river. i didnt want to go home. we are planning for the next visit.
