My boyfriend and I stayed in the Evergreen Cabin this past weekend. It was perfect for what we needed, and the view was amazing. The cottage was incredibly clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was stocked with towels and even travel shampoo/condition, etc. The Evergreen Cabin is a "stand alone" cabin, so we did not share walls with...

What a wonderful place to celebrate 3 birthdays, 6 of us in this unique cabin. Easily sleeps 6, full kitchen with everything we needed, fireplace, nice living room with plenty of seating. 3 long blocks into the heart of Estes Park, so very walkable to shops, dining and entertainment. Did I mention the whiskey tasting and wine tasting?

Perfect location, very clean and accommodating. River Rock Cottages was able to grant us a late check out of noon which was very helpful. The location is great for walking and driving to any point in Estes Park. There was a nice petite patio to sun on in the morning.

The Aspen cabin was a wonderful place for our father & son weekend. My son loved that we could see mule deer on the property, as well as down the hill, and seeing the mountains out the windows in the morning was an awesome experience for a nine year old from Nebraska! It was a very cozy - NOT small...

Stayed here during the winter to attend a wedding. The location is out of the way from the crowd of town but close enough to run errands and pick up stuff. My son ended up plugging the toilet in the later evening, and the owner responded and helped rather quickly for a weekend evening.

I have been going to River Rock cottages for years now, it is my go to place when visiting Estes.

We stay at River Rock Cottages every Christmas and sometimes in the summer when we can leave our hometown of Los Angeles. There is nothing like a white Christmas! Carolyn and Terry, the owners, always welcome us back with top accommodations and friendly service. There's nothing like a family ran business to enjoy the holidays or as a vacation destination....

Very pretty, beds were comfy, however treated badly by owners. I should have stayed at Brynwood on the river. Oh well, next time! The owner ran off the elk, I was there to see the elk! I hope these people hire staff to host so no one has to experience the rude, fakeness that we saw. :(

It’s disappointing you’ve chosen to handle our encounter with negative reviews of our cottages on various sites. This review is not reflective of the situation. You are a traveling nurse working at the Estes Park Medical Center and needed lodging for about 3 months. It is very difficult to find this type of lodging in Estes Park and we try...

I nearly fell over when we learned these cottages are over 8 years old because they are kept in pristine condition! The owners are lovely and clearly care about their property and the guests experience. This is the perfect location for walking to town too. We'll be back!

Wow! You just made our day! We're so glad you enjoyed our cottage and that we made you feel welcome. That's obviously our goal! Pleased that you took advantage of our location and walked to town. We live in the back of the property and walk everywhere ourselves. Thank you and see you next time! ~Carolyn
