Very comfortable and well furnished
We stayed there for the month of August 2016. It was clean, comfortable and very well furnished, equipped and updated. It was perfect for my husband and I and our visiting kids and grandkids who live nearby. The location on the rocks above the town of Evergreen made it convenient to shopping and sightseeing. Going "down the hill" into Denver and suburbs was an easy drive. We enjoyed sitting on one of the three decks on Sunday afternoons listening to the music coming from a nearby restaurant's outdoor patio. Evergreen Lake and park are an easy walk from the cottage. There are also many places to hike the beautiful trail systems nearby. If the windows are open there is some traffic noise during the day but we never had an issue with noise at night. We would stay there again in a minute!
extra clean, comfortable and convenient
We spent two weeks at the Stone Cottage in September and all of the positive reviews are spot on. Very clean with all of the comforts of home. The nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Everything was perfect. This is a great place for people who want to truly experience downtown Evergreen - because you are on the rocks above downtown. Excellent people and elk watching. There is considerable traffic noise in the afternoons with the windows open, but that's what you get when you are so close to the action. The downstairs bedroom is very quiet. Overall, we loved this place and would highly recommend it to anyone.
For us Stone Cottage was the perfect location for our Colorado vacation. There's Denver to the east and the higher Rocky Mountain resorts and attractions to the west, plus the lower range attractions to the north and south. Also, the location in Evergreen is perfect – downtown area just below and an easy walk to the lake.You can look up at the cabin from everywhere along the main street. Lots of hiking opportunities around Evergreen, as there are several parks and national forests. An abundance of wildlife around the cabin – we had an elk herd walk by up on the road above the driveway, plus saw deer, squirrels and a fox.
We also share the view of others who have mentioned the owners – Heather is very easy to work with, flexible, and has a lot of good suggestions. Needless to say, we'd like to come back!
Great location, lovely place, loads of luxurious upgrades...
I grew up in Colorado and have spent a lot of time around Evergreen, including perhaps a few too many nights at the Little Bear. Whenever we come back we've usually got people to see in town and stuff we've gotta do, but the last place I want to be is in the city. Evergreen is a great compromise: close enough to Denver to go if necessary and have a reasonable drive to the airport, but most definitely still a Colorado mountain community. This little place couldn't be better located. It provides comfortable walking access to Evergreen proper, including food faves like Beau Jo's and the Wildflower Cafe. And, of course, the Little Bear, one of the state's premier live music joints.
But what REALLY makes this place great is the exceptional taste and luxurious touches the owners have added with their renovations and decor. The kitchen is beautiful - granite and rich woods, with a serious stove and a surprisingly cool black stone sink. The floors are warm, the furniture is comfortable, the beds are great, the bathrooms are light and pleasant, the deck is perfect for hanging out, and the bits of real rock here and there add character. The downstairs bedroom in particular is comfortable and quiet and dark, the perfect place to snuggle down and sleep in. Very relaxing.
The owners were responsive, friendly, flexible and helpful. We've been VRBOing places regularly all over the country for 7 or 8 years, and this was perhaps our finest experience yet. We'll be back. Thanks!
The Best VRBO anywhere
My wife and I have used VRBO both in the USA and abroad. This cottage is the best we have ever rented by far. It is a charming historic stone cottage high above downtown Evergreen. Restored to perfection a few years ago it has some of the finest finish carpentry possible (A man from New England lived in it to renovate it.) Everything you could want or need is furnished, and amply so: towels, dishes, kitchen utensils,soap, T.P., etc. It is like a hotel in many respects.
Evergreen is a not self conscious or to precious place. It is quintessential America. Many places to visit, both on foot with a walk around Lake Evergreen, to easy trips to Denver, Boulder, or the ski communities. Local restaurants' food choices run the gamut from great Asian to burgers.
To be fair, this house requires the ability to walk stairs and tolerate some traffic noise during the afternoons. But the walls of the house are made of old river rocks and by closing the windows the sound is easily evaded. Evenings cool off nicely in summer and there is no need for A/C. It rains a bit every afternoon in August. The neighbors are very friendly and accommodating too.
This is also the best VRBO owner we have ever dealt with too. And that makes a big difference. We highly recommend this rental.
LOVE this cottage!
Love-love-love this cottage! We've been to Evergreen five times and tried to stay at the Stone Cottage each time- now we see why it's always been booked... it's the best! What a cozy haven to enjoy a truly spectacular visit to Evergreen.
