This cabin is perfect for a couple. Annie has appointed it perfectly with so many little things. After 7 nights I was still noticing things I hadn't seen before. Wonderful stay, slept like a baby and drinking coffee on the deck first thing in the morning listening to the river is not to be missed. We really enjoyed this cabin...

There are many ways describe Annie's River Cabin. Awesome is the one that comes to mind immediately. My fiance and I spent 3 days in July in the River Cabin and really wish we could have spent many more days there. The cabin is loaded with artistic beauty. The way Annie has decorated it makes everything special. The bed is...

So glad you enjoyed your stay but I am stumped about the privacy fence being in the way of a view. On each deck where we felt someone else could see your hot tub we put up 6 foot privacy fencing but we also have areas of each deck where there is typical deck railing. We take lots of time...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Carriage House at Annie's Mountain Retreat in Estes Park for our honeymoon. We stayed for a full week and absolutely loved every second!

What a hidden gem! We found everything we needed and more in our little cabin. Only a few minutes from busy Estes Park the cabins are perfectly located to explore the many trails of the Rocky Mountain National Park. We truly enjoyed our daily breakfasts on the back porch and homemade dinners on the barbecue grill. Another big plus is...

My husband and I loved the rustic look of the cabin with all the modern conveniences. Our favorite thing was sitting on the swing watching the river go by. Great time, will most definitely return. Nicer to be away from the busy part of Estes Park, and in the quiet canyon.

My wife and I stayed at the Carriage House, located on the west side of Estes Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The second floor apartment was comfortable, contained all the essentials, and was very quiet. The location, right next to Rocky Mountain National Park, was a major plus. We found the owners to be very attentive to our needs....

From the river rock fireplace and tub to the many carved bears, fishing decorations and romantic and festive lightning this cabin is sure to stoke the fire of your relationship. Well equipped.

Awww......what a wonderful review. It reminds us of why we chose to have cabin rentals. We didnt want them to be a typical rental and we always strive to make it Romantic and cozy. I love finding lighting that I can add to the cabins for " Romantic ambiance" We hope to see you back in the near future. Annie

We always try to stay out of sight of our Carriage House guests since we live on the same property.........but some of our guests do like to visit with us and we always love to talk with them and answer any questions they may have but we also know some guests prefer to keep to themselves.
