What a quaint cottage with A SUPER MARVELOUS VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS! We loved sitting on the deck just looking and looking. The inside facilities were very complete-so we had a super enjoyable stay! Thanks for helping us relax and renew our energies. Perhaps we will see you again. Dan and Ardie, Ames, Iowa

July 28-August 11, 2012

We very much enjoyed our stay here in this lovely cottage. The location was perfect and the views amazing. After a long day of hiking it was so nice to come “home” to such comfortable accommodations. Favorite hikes: Easy-The Pool, Moderate-Deer Mountain Summit, Difficult-Andrews Glacier (so worth it!) We love Estes Park and we’re planning to return as often as possible. Thank you to Jim and Lois for your kindness and hospitality. Joanne and David, Holmes Beach, Florida

What a perfect home away from home. The location is perfect for trips to RMNP and town. Anybody up for a gorgeous yet challenging hike should check out Sky pond. Last night here we went to Sundeck for poached trout since Larry caught seven trout in the catch and release area today. We would definitely stay here again. Someday we would like to try it in the winter for snow shoeing. Right now the elk are bugling and this feels a little bit like heaven. Sandy and Larry

Sept 29-Oct 4 2012

It has been so lovely to have this “home” away from home. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage could not be more perfect, but the best part of it all was the delightful and accommodating Lois and Jim! Thank you ever so much, Monya P.S. The kids are already planning their return!

Oct 8-13, 2012

Wonderful stay in a relaxing and homey cottage. We loved our stay and felt rejuvenated by the mountains, clean air and bubbling streams. We hope to come again. We could not ask for a better vacation. Amy, Phil and Taras, Boston

''This was the perfect location for our first vacation with our 10 month old son. The proximity to RMNP and the downtown were excellent features of the cottage. We enjoyed breakfast at Molly B's, pizza from Poppy's, Sweet Basillico's was excellent (and very close) and the Donut Haus was a perfect sweet start to a morning. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed ours!'' A Family from Detroit.

''We don't want to leave. The snow is on the mountains and we've had a wonderful time hiking, exploring, and relaxing! We'll be back. Thanks for all the suggestions. It has made it really enjoyable. We've felt at home here.'' A Family from Austin

Guest comments from August 2009:

''We could not have had a better place to stay during our visit to Estes Park. Our cottage was warm and homey with everything we needed provided for us. Thank you so much for providing such a clean and lovely place to visit.

We certainly hope to come back.'' Roberts Family

''The cottage was perfect. Thanks to Jim for helping us start the camp fire. The views from the deck were spectacular. We loved the location too- not too close to tge ''busy streets'' and a also a very private feel.'' Chalpala Family

''Thank you for a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. What an incredible setting to wake up to each morning.'' Hendrickson Family

''The setting for your home is wonderful. My family had a fantastic time while visiting Estes Park. Your facilities were very warm and comfortable, much like home. We enjoyed the views of wildflife(bears and deer) and snowcapped mountains while sitting on the deck.'' Davis Family

Guest comment from September 2008:

''We loved the place! It was perfect! Clean, homey and quaint with everything one needs....and a great location. I would have been happy just sitting on that deck staring at the view all day. We cannot wait to come back to your place.

About Jim and Lois Gunlicks

As youngsters both of our families spent vacations in the mountains. I worked in Estes Park one summer in high school and two in college. Because we loved Estes Park so much, Lois and I bought our first vacation home here ten years ago. After spending two summers in a condo, we decided to make the plunge into the bed and breakfast business. Being a career military couple, we knew we enjoyed entertaining people. We bought the adjacent Davis Hill Band B (Davis Hill Historic House), the oldest in Estes Park, in 2006. We are from Nebraska where Lois grew up on a farm with a big family so making breakfasts and beds was a part of life. Davis Hill B and B came with this lovely modern cottage which we recognized as a great rental asset because of the location providing gorgeous views and the design for easy living. Guests often rent the entire B&B and this cottage together for large family reunions and weddings.(When they rent the entire B&B they have have full access to the kitchen to prepare their own meals.) Managing these properties is a wonderful retirement activity for us because of the terrific people we meet and the beautiful surroundings. During the summer season we reside in an owner's suite below the cottage where we act as caretakers of the property and are available to answer questions.

Jim and Lois Gunlicks purchased this cottage in 2006

wonderful place to stay while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. It is very conveniently located, just minutes from the eastern Park entrance. The house is very well equipped, and has wonderful views of the Park and surrounding countryside. The hosts were very helpful, and gave us the information we needed. The place is very well maintained, and easy to stay in. We would highly recommend it.

Home away from home with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful cottage for 2 weeks. We could not have picked a better spot. This must have one of the best views in or around Estes Park and although the cottage is a short walk to downtown, it is quiet and you feel like you are away from the crowds. We found the cottage to be very comfortable and to have everything that we needed. The cottage owners who live across the street could not have been more helpful and friendly. It is less than a 10 minute drive into Rocky Mountain National Park and we found ourselves going in and out easily early in the morning or after dinner to look at the sunset and the stars. We grew up in Colorado and used to live an hour from Estes Park so we are very familiar with the area yet we weren't aware of this great neighborhood so close to town. The unit is not large but was perfect for us and our daughter who visited a few nights. We had friends visit us over the 2 week period and all who came to visit were most impressed with the view and accommodations. We would not hesitate to stay there again for 2 weeks or even longer.

so convenient to to Rocky Mountain National Park

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot to enjoy Rocky Mountain National Park. We had perfect weather, and hiked every day we were here, always returning to our cottage afterwards. The unit had everything we needed: we never went out to dinner: just cooked in. The unit is quiet, convenient to town, and has a great view. We highly recommend it.

Wonderful place right near town

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the cottage was perfect. There was nothing that we needed everything was ready for us. Grilled out, walked to town and was just minutes away from the entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park.

Thank you Jim and Lois for being wonderful host and hostess.

This cottage provided us a serene, relaxing retreat and phenomenal views. Great bed, deck & kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We were disappointed when we had to leave our hide-away to visit friends, eat out or get groceries. LOVED just being up above the world; seemed like we were high in the mountains away from all civilization while we were close to shopping and entertainment IF we wanted that. Gunlicks were close by to respond to any needs and provided a comfortable, clean cottage with all the amenities...even a dishwasher! We definitely plan to spend time in this lovely place again.
