My husband and I stayed at the cottage house. This was perfect for us. It is closes to the town and yet far enough away from everything to be a true retreat. Annie showed us around and checked us in on our 1st day there.The private hot tube house was wonderful. The hot tube was the perfect temp for cooler...

Thank you for the nice review. You are right about the stairs but I do have the three cabins in the Big Thompson Canyon. For those with bad knees or physical limitations the 12 steps getting up the the Carriage House might be a problem. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you become repeat guests!!...

I've stayed at many places including many in Estes Park, and I meticulously searched maps, travel sights, and virtually everywhere you can think of for the perfect private true cabin getaway. When my wife and I visited the Carriage house and the River Cabin. We were blown away. It was more like home then our actual home. It had absolutely...

This place is GREAT!! The cabin is awesome...private hot tub, fireplace, fuzzy blankets, warm robes, cozy lighting, and more! Annie and Craig have thought of EVERYTHING down to the smallest detail-there is even a frosty mug in the freezer awaiting your favorite beverage:} To top it off their personalized customer service is AMAZING!

We had a fabulous, albeit too short, stay at Annie's Carriage House. It was the perfect spot for a relaxing respite. Were looking forward to the combination of the cozy cottage and the private hot tub, and we took full advantage of both. After a day of snowshoeing, the powerful jets and comfortable seating in the hot tub were most...

LOVED it!!! We lacked for nothing. Fully stocked. Awesome hot tub. Never left after we arrived. Did some hiking but never had to get back in the vehicle. Perfect 3 day escape. Super friendly owners. They were very accommodating. 100% recommend this cabin.

We enjoyed 3 nights here. The cabin is stocked with every thing you need for cooking and decorated perfectly for a mountain get away. We enjoyed the hot tub and looking at the stars in the evening. The beds were confortable and the cabin was clean. Although the fence around the hut tub obstructed the mountain views it was only...

The cabin is absolutely beautiful, right on the river and across from some lovely hiking opportunities. The proprietors thought of everything - a well-stocked kitchen, treats, hygiene products, loads of fresh, fluffy towels, books, and DVDs. The hot tub was delightful and very clean, with a privacy fence so you can enjoy it however you choose.

We stayed two days in the Mountain Cabin and two days in the River Cabin. They were both great and had all the amenities you could ask for. The River Cabin has a little more room. Annie will make sure all your needs are met. We definitely plan on going back as soon as we can.

We are only 3 miles from Estes Park in the Big Thompson Canyon with the Big Thompson River flowing flowing behind the cabins. It is a short 5 minute drive to town.

We have our Carriage House unit on that property which is .6 miles off the Hwy and borders Rocky Mountain National Park. All Cabins have Private Outdoor Hot Tubs and we have been catering to couples since 1999. Be sure and check out our Amenities page as we provide more then most! ... more   less
