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!
The good: quality for the price; comfortable beds; nice bathrooms; stocked kitchen; great access to family activities including Garden of the Gods, cave dwellings, Woodland Park, disc golf, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, hiking, Helen Hunt Jackson Falls, Eleven-Mile Canyon, The Pantry outdoor brunch spot in GMF
The not-so-good: cabin was semi-clean when we arrived (hair in sinks, floors not mopped); parking (see below); lots of low ceiling spots in bigger cabin (just something to be aware of)
Parking: We filled this 3-bedroom space with 3 couples and 2 babies. Everyone fit comfortably in the cabins, even with pack-and-plays, but parking was an issue. The cabin info specifies to please park only in the designated space, but does not clarify that there is only space for 2 vehicles. We pulled our third vehicle up next to the main cabin in a convenient spot to reach the second cabin, thinking it was nicely tucked out of the way, but a neighbor soon approached us, saying it was "a big problem" to park here, because the car was at the dead end of a road. It was not in anyone's way, he agreed, but it was still "a big problem." We asked where he would recommend to park, and he informed us that we would need to park our third vehicle in the public parking area on the main road of the town. Let me clarify that parking there would then require walking several hundred feet uphill to reach the cabin -- not ideal for this traveling group including babies and an almost 60-year-old man. We called the owner, who was easily available but unhelpful in suggesting a solution. We eventually worked something out with a different neighbor, but really thought this should have been addressed in the cabin description, as we spent our entire first evening in GMF trying to figure out parking. We were disappointed by the owner's lack of assistance; it does not seem unrealistic for a 3-bedroom cabin to host 3 couples/3 vehicles, so we'd be surprised if this was a new issue. ALSO, parking to hike in GMF was difficult, as any public parking is located several blocks from any trail heads. Be aware that if you plan to hike in GMF, you will have to walk uphill a fair piece through all the cabins to get to the trails.
Bottom line: The cabins were rustic but nice (true to description), and we would stay here again, but really wish we had been aware of the parking situation before we arrived. If coming to the area specifically for hiking, we would look for a cabin closer to the trails.
The cabin was nice... The telescope is too hard to figure out---if it worked. We took it outside and tried, but to no avail. Washing machine makes an odd noise. The cabin was very warm at night for us when the front door was shut. 90 degree days are going to make this Cabin very warm at night. Cabin was overall very clean, beds comfortable, property manager very attentive.
Mucky Duck is a Jewel of a reaturant to have in such a small town. GMF is close to everything.
