Pinecone Cottage was such a tranquil, cozy place to relax and kick back after hiking and playing out in the frigid temps! The views of the Rockies are beautiful. Our hosts were very communicative and thoughtful. Special touches like complimentary snacks were very much appreciated. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. Estes is just a few minutes drive away and so is the entrance to RMNP. We cannot wait to come back!
Had a great time!
We had a fabulous trip! The owners were so accessible, the place was sparkling clean, and our kids are ready to abandon their suburban living and move to (this house in) the mountains! Thanks for a great stay!
Such a beautiful, comfortable, breath of fresh air! We treasured every minute and wished we could stay much longer than we did. Thank Janet for providing this cozy, lovely opportunity out in nature. ❤️
We stayed at Janet's cabin for my 30th birthday and the cabin was so clean, cute, and comfortable!! The view is AMAZING. You can see all the mountains, downtown, and wildlife right from the front porch. The cabin is a few minute drive to downtown and the lake. Only a few more minutes to Rocky Mountain national park, which we visited and had a great time. I highly recommend staying here for any of your trips in Estes! Thank you Janet!
Nice views & private, but not too far from restaurants, grocery, gas, etc. Close to the Rocky Mountain National Park where we spent most of our time. Beautiful & we're glad that we beat the crowds even though the highest roads didn't open until Memorial Day. Needed the 4WD as we were there for the biggest snow storm in more than a year at the end of our trip.
This cabin is way better than the photos! My husband and myself spent a long weekend away in Estes Park. The cabin was immaculate when we arrived, everything important is communicated very well by the owners. The directions getting there were well written, we were able to find it even though it’s down a bit of a twisted dirt road. The gate for RMNP is super close, with direct access to the park without having to drive through the town traffic. The cabin has a great deck with fantastic views, we really didn’t want to leave those views. Oh and the night sky from the deck is incredible and totally worth the trip from DC to Colorado. The inside of the cabin is very comfortable and clean. We can be pretty picky about places but this cabin was outstanding in a sweet vintage mountain way. It wasn’t difficult to follow the very reasonable and well communicated directions from the owner, really just common sense stuff. We also didn’t have any trash issues but it was just the two of us. This cabin is the perfect size for two couples, a small family or small friends trip. There are only two bedrooms with two queen beds in each. The top floor bedroom didn’t appear to have a bathroom but there is a full bath off the kitchen they could come downstairs to use. The main floor master had two comfortable queen beds and a very nice master bathroom. There’s also a small laundry room off the master which was convenient for us. There’s no ac in the cabin and we were there during a heat wave, we were totally comfortable with the windows open. We had a really really amazing trip and would definitely come back to this cabin. The only bad part was having to leave.
Beautiful cabin with all the amenities. Spectacular views minutes from downtown.
Very nice cottage that fit our needs very well. 6 of us really enjoyed ourselves. Even had mule deer outside the last night and the next morning. Close to Estes but still secluded.
We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Our only negative comment would be to the number of rules that are asked of guests and the screen door was way to heavy and hard to use. I understand that you must ask a little of your guests but to put a 1.5 bag of trash limit based on number of days as well as some other things was a little excessive. Especially because this was not clearly stated in the rental listing online. Also, the road to the house was not an easy one and that was also not clearly stated. If we had been looking for the house in the dark it would have been extremely frustrating. It was also frustrating that there was a large jacuzzi tub but the hot water heater did not accommodate filling it up in order to use it. That was also disheartening. Other than that it was a wonderful cabin.
This cabin is a wonderful place to stay! We had 6 people that stayed and we had plenty of room. Very clean and has everything you need.
This cottage had everything we needed, including spectacular mountain views. Only a short drive to both the park and downtown, and there is a small grocery store just at the bottom of the hill. Comfortable beds, a cozy loft, fully-equipped kitchen and grill on the deck. We had a wonderful time using this as our base while exploring in the mountains. The owners are very nice and responsive to any questions. Highly recommended!!
I think the thing I was most impressed with staying at Pine Cone Cottage was the view and the serenity that surrounded us. There is no comparison between staying at Pinecone Cottage and staying in the hubbub of downtown Estes Park. Never again would I want to stay any place but Pinecone Cottage. The accommodations were great for us. We had two grandchildren who we're happy to have their own area upstairs to get away from us grown ups and have their own space. Us grown-ups were thankful for that as well 😁�. We ate the majority of our meals at this beautiful Cottage. A full kitchen with a dishwasher and laundry facilities were such a plus. The only thing I wish we would have had access to were a few more towels. When you have three girls Under One Roof and each one needs a towel for their hair and their body 6 towels for four people is not enough. There may have been extra towels on site but I was not able to locate them. A lesson learned, either bring more towels myself or make sure I ask in advance for a few extra towels.
My family of 5 stayed in this cozy cottage and loved it! The first night we arrived we saw a deer standing on a rock right behind the house and the next day we saw a young buck eating on the side of the driveway! I like the rustic feeling of the cottage, while having all of the modern amenities that we are used to. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well with plenty of room for everyone. We didn't use the kitchen much except to store a few items in the fridge, but the kitchen was stocked with anything anyone would need to cook and serve a meal if you choose. We really enjoyed all of the extras the owners thought of to make our stay feel like home. The cottage was very well taken care of and clean and you can tell that the owners take great pride in this home! The rustic cabin theme could be seen throughout the home, from the furniture to the style of dishes. This cottage was a great place to stay and truly feel like we got to experience a mountain vacation in this wonderful home!
Pinecone Cottage is the perfect mix between rustic and contemporary, and is nicely situated between fun shopping in the city and adventures in the national park. We enjoyed the updated kitchen and deck with awesome panoramic mountain views.
Owners made it very easy to book this very charming cottage. We had everything that we needed and enjoyed our stay.
Rustic, but very comfortably equipped and very clean, this cabin is a great location--a couple of minutes away from town and about a mile to the National Park entrance. The views from the deck are spectacular; we spent many late afternoons and evenings just watching the sun over the mountains. Great hiking nearby and convenient to all amenities, but you can enjoy the solitude and neighboring wildlife. An elk turned up almost every day and a pack of coyotes one night.
Had a wonderful stay. Our 4 yr old wanted to stay forever.
My family & I stayed at Pinecone Cottage in Estes Park, CO. This immaculate, isolated, & fully furnished cabin met all of our expectations & needs. We would like to stay there again. Janet, cabin owner & manager, was kind, hospitable, helpful, cooperative, & honest.
Estes Park & RMNP had majestic & beautiful landscapes & animals along w/ nice, cool weather.
This was perfect for our vacation! Great cabin with everything we needed. Great views and great location for everything we wanted to do. We saw elk and deer on the property several times in the week we were there. Kids loved exploring the property too-very different from home! RMNP was spectacular, hiked everyday. Was great to come back to the Pinecone Cottage to rest each night. Thank you!!
My wife and I came from Albuquerque, New Mexico to spend the thanksgiving weekend. We had a wonderful stay in PineCone Cottage with picturesque settings. We arrive late after dark and could not see the outside views. We woke up the next day and saw a herd of elk walking and standing outside the driveway carelessly. Views in the morning were spectacular. We were pleased to see very nice setting inside the cottage. Everything was put together in a nice and thoughtful arrangements. It was indeed a nice and warm cozy feelings in the cottage. At the end, thank you and happy thanksgiving.
We felt we were in a story book cabin. Evergreens and Pineones everywhere. A hint of christmas was in the air, no matter what season.
We stayed here for 3 days for a wedding, and it was close to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). We hiked, saw many animals, and had a wonderful time with the family and friends.
Beautiful views, fresh air, and the perfect getaway !!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Pinecone Cottage. Once we arrived, we didn't want to leave! The views are amazing, and the cottage is equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It is close to RMNP and to restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Pine Cone cottage. The proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) and downtown Estes Park can't be beat. The cottage itself was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We saw several deer, rabbits and many birds around the cottage; a neighbour told us that a bear has been seen nearby. We highly recommend staying at Pinecone cottage.
My friends and I had a wonderful time at Pine Cone Cottage. The cottage is located on a hill/mountain side on approximately 2 acres of rustic land. If you are looking for solitude, this is the place. The views, lack of street noise, beautiful sunsets and glorious stars at night were just what these city gals needed. The cabin is close to RMNP and downtown, it is well stocked and very quaint. We enjoyed our stay very much and would stay there again if/when we return to Estes Park.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Your cabin as as beautiful as the nature around it. Sunsets and waking up to these mountains has been very enjoyable. Up here I noticed when you sit still nature opens up to you, and once open she just starts showing off. Thanks again and hope to come back.
Beautiful Location and Views. The "extras" were a wonderful surprise (water, discount card, and toiletries). The cabin is charming and comfortable. We made friends with an injured elk who visited us everyday.
Beautiful View and Wonderful Cabin, So Peaceful. We saw 2 fox passing through one morning. One morning while eating supper our 3rd night, a brown bear, yes you read that right, about 20 yards from the deck walked through the yard, went across the road and up the hill. He then ventured onto a deck and was playing with the feeder on the deck. It was awesome !!
Thanks so much for all the information you left for us visitors. The Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) card was great. We used it often !! Thanks so much for a relaxing vacation !, Love the Cabin.
