On planning our 2017 vacation, we realised that we had omitted to write our intended review of this property we stayed in, last October.
We went mid October. The weather was just fabulous and all we needed was an extra sweatshirt when going out.
Starry Nights, our cabins, were very nice and had all the amenities needed for a stay. So much better than the confines of a hotel room!
We certainly appreciated the spices and condiments available in the kitchen. That was a nice touch and saved us from having to buy them.
The second cabin was a great place for a couple of friends, who joined us. We all had a great time together, but had the privacy of our own sleeping accommodations.
Each afternoon, we were joined by deer who came surprisingly close. We also saw a fox one evening. A wonderful place for photography!
Although there were other cabins around, we did not feel cramped at all. it was very peaceful.
A concern we had, when deciding to book, was that it was going to be too secluded as it was off a main road. Our concern quickly vanished when we arrived.
The only problem we had, whilst there, was the security light stopped working, making it quite dark between the cabins at night. On phoning the management, they came out straight away and fixed it. The manager was really helpful and friendly.
If you stay here, don't forget to eat at the Mucky Duck, incredible wood decor and a nice meal!
Don't believe everything you see! They've done a great job taking the pictures from just the right angles. The cabins are very close together. There's no privacy at all. The next lot is so close their vehicles are no more than 20 feet from the front porch. It's like a car lot. It wasn't inviting to sit out or use the yard.
The lot is dark. You need a flashlight to get to the second cabin. Once there, it is a great place for extended family.
In the main cabin, beware the sloping ceilings. The one in the second bath is so low a 6' man will hit his head trying to visit the toilet or use the laundry.
The landline phone is hidden behind the tv. We searched assuming one didn't exist. Finally had to contact the management company to find it's location.
The pictures make you think the kitchen is new and wonderful. It's not. It's old and grungy. The dishwasher doesn't work. I wouldn't have rented knowing we'd be washing dishes on vacation.
The location was good for seeing the sights and attractions. It was quiet and the sheets were soft.
Oh, and watch out for the price. It says one thing but ends up being something else. Lots of hidden fees and for some reason it keeps changing.
The experience in Starry Nights was disappointing. Not worth the price. The cabins have potential but lots of things need fixing and cleaning. Sheets smelled musty, closets were stuffed full of things, refrigerator had food left from previous renters, closet doors didn't shut, room heaters didn't work (knobs to adjust the heat fell off of heaters) and it just didn't reflect the photos and description. It was super disappointing for our out of town guests. They had to wash the bedding before they slept in the beds. I would not recommend this holiday rental.
Cabins are in a very convenient location for local attractions (Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, plenty of trails, etc.). There were several loose or broken hinges and hooks and things throughout the rooms but nothing major. Neighbors are close and the lot is a little small with little parking. Great yard for star gazing and the nearby park/playground was great for our young daughter.
The good: price was reasonable; comfortable beds; nice bathrooms; stocked kitchen; great access to family activities including Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Royal Gorge, Seven Falls and LOTS of wildlife!
The not-so-good: cabin was semi-clean when we arrived, trash in dumpster and the DVD player (or lack there of). The DVD player was actually the PlayStation gaming unit which we could not use because the cords to the controller were frayed. Without the controller you can not run the DVD or play the PS4 (and we had PS experts on hand---a 12 and 13 year old)!!
Also, we were told not to put trash outside (housekeeping would take care of it when we departed), however the dumpster had the previous tenants trash in it. So the first night we were there something tipped over the trash cart and spread trash EVERYWHERE. So we spent 15-20 minutes picking up trash (food, dirty diapers, etc---yuck) from our cabin site plus several neighbors. We proceeded to put a couple of stumps on the lid for the second night. The stumps were knocked off by the next morning but must have made enough noise that it scared of the intruders before rummaging through the trash.
Bottom line: The cabins were rustic but nice
We arrived in CO to visit our oldest daughter and were so very excited to see how nice the cabin was for our stay there. The exterior room/bathroom was perfect as my husband and I slept out there and we were able to let our children stay up and watch movies and catch up while us old farts hit the hay at an earlier time. The paper supplies were perfect for the start of our stay and the dinnerware and coffee pot and pans were great for nice home-cooked meals and BBQ time! We had viewed on the website that the cabin was pet friendly and when on the plane I read the contract and it stated no pets allowed. The daughter we came to visit would be bringing her dog and now we didn't know what to do. When I phoned the cabin manager, he said it was no problem....we were very pleased that it wasn't an issue. The cabin location was not far from our adventures of white water rafting, driving to pikes peak, fly fishing at a few locations, garden of the gods, 11 mile canyon. We enjoyed our stay a ton and would recommend to all. Thanks so much for everything!
