We chose the Columbine Cabin because of its description on the Dao House website. There is no queen pull-out sleeper in the living room. Because of that, we slept on the living room floor on our camping bedding. The living room furniture isn’t at all how it is described. There is a dining table with 4 chairs, a log-framed couch and 2 log-framed chairs, which are rather uncomfortable. Further, there were dirty socks under the cabinet in the living room; a previous guest’s stay information left behind; hairs on the bathroom floor, not from us; there were 4 sets of towels for 6 adults; only one cabin door lock key was available for 6 of us; many spiders and spider webs are in the cabin; the refrigerator was dirty, and the coffee maker didn’t work. Staff brought a different coffee maker, wrapped in plastic, but it was dirty with dried coffee drips in and on it. Also, we didn’t need or use silverware but there were only 5-6 butter knives in the cabinet, no spoons or forks.

The Dao house surprised us. We didn’t anticipate being submerged into a Buddhist atmosphere. If we were traveling with our extended family and children, we wouldn’t pick this lodge. We Needed a one night stay due to a family member running a marathon in Estes. The race started at this property so that’s why we booked it. The rooms are basic, and rustic . The bed was ok. Our room had a thick wooden door that opened to the outside balcony where we could sit on a log bench and enjoy the Mountain View. The rooms windows opened for fresh air which was nice. A couple of the screens didn’t provide a seal to keep insects out though. . We appreciated that they have pet friendly rooms so those of us with allergies would not be in a pet used room.

This place is beautiful. Yes they are still working on improvements, but that doesn’t take away for what this place is. It is tranquility. Our room is clean and the view of Longs Peak is amazing. And it’s away from the busy town. Can’t wait to come back.

I would call it rustic. A lodge in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. What a great feeling. A balcony to relax on. And for me WIFI to connect with. Bring some wine and cheese and a good book to enjoy. Your in heaven. Stay several nights and enjoy the hiking in the area

Loved our stay. We weren't sure what to expect with the Dao beliefs but it was basically a normal lodge and much cheaper than other options. The views of the surrendering mountains were incredible with a pond on site too. The staff were kind and really flexible with our check out time. We picked this location so my husband could hike Long's Peak and it was as close as we could stay to the trail head. My daughter and I explored the vast property and trails all day and they let us check out late. Our room was large and clean and quiet with a nice bathroom. There is no AC but it gets cold at night and the wifi was very helpful since I had no cell signal. I only gave 4 stars because you can tell that parts of the property have really gone downhill. There is an rotting boat dock and unusable pool and hot tub and stables that would be lovely if repaired. My daughter enjoyed the slide and swings and horse shoes. The fire rings looked nice. A quick drive to town too yet very peaceful and quiet and beautiful here!
