                                                              Recent Estes Park Reviews

                                                              Wonderful Venue for Family Get Togethers

                                                              We stayed here over Mother's Day weekend to celebrate our Dad's 80th birthday. Upon arriving we were immediately in love with this place. The home was larger than expected and the bedrooms were spread out so we could each have our privacy and quiet time when needed. Beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and appreciated the extra seating available on the main floor living room for when those staying in town came out to visit. (Not even a ten minute drive to Estes Park.) We loved the wildlife viewing right from the living room. The deck is wonderful but too cold for us to enjoy this time; but we got good use out of the large bbq. For us, having the main level be accessible was ideal, and worked great for those with limited mobility. If you are looking for a vacation rental, this is it! One tip for renters, if you would like to have a fire in the fireplace, bring firewood. You can always buy in town though if needed. A suggestion for Greg and Kara....keep everything the same....except maybe put risers on the furniture legs so those with mobility issues can get up easier. The furniture was so comfy, but was a little work to get off of. Also.....love your quilts! Is there a website that you sell them through?

                                                              Great property - Beautiful and relaxing

                                                              This is a great property with plenty of room for big family or groups. The house was furnished was everything we needed. Only minutes away from Loveland and Estes Park, providing easy access to grocery stores and things to do. Loved sitting on the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee listening to the river and relaxing in the hot tub after a long day of activities. Kent and Janie were great to work with and always responded quickly to emails. Will definitely stay here again. Gary & Elaine S.

                                                              Great Cabin

                                                              We had a great stay at Pine Cone Cabin! Linda was very accommodating. It's a little secluded from the downtown (A good thing) but only a 10 minute walk from the heart of downtown. Easy access to RMNP because you don't have to drive through town to get to the Beaver Meadows entrance. The neighborhood was very quiet. Elk and deer visited Moccassin St. three out of the five days we were there. We would definitely visit again.
