Very clean and great location.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I, a Cadet at USAFA , spent Memorial Day weekend here and we both found Jay's cabin clean, affordable and with a great location. The cabin was well stocked with amenities and the washer/dryer was a great bonus. Located within walking distance from the RMNP visitor's center but a drive to downtown. If you rent this cabin, be sure to find the back way around downtown Estes Park or you will be in traffic for awhile during busy times. Overall, five stars. Keep up the good work Jay and we will be seeing you again soon.

P.S. Also very prompt refund of security deposit, thank you Jay.

Exceptional home away from home

  • 5 of 5

After returning home from a nine day stay at Mills Dr cottage, I feel compelled to write my first ever review. From my first inquiry about making reservations and extending throughout my stay, the owners not only were responsive and helpful, but went out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. The cottage, situated next to the owners' residence on a peaceful hillside with the deck facing Longs Peak, is a short scenic drive east into the heart of Estes Park, and equally convenient drive west into RMNP via Beaver Meadow park entrance. The immaculate 500 square ft cottage is well designed for comfort and efficiency. Though it was cold and snowy for most of my stay, the gas fireplace kept the interior comfortably cozy. The washer and dryer, plush linens, jacuzzi tub, and fully equipped kitchen helped ensure a wonderful, hassle-free stay. I highly recommend Mills Dr cottage! (already made reservations for next year!)

Cabin with Great views and location to RMNP

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for a week of being close to Rocky Mountain National Park & Estes. Location was close enough to town & the park entrance without being in the heart of things. We enjoyed the cabin for the views it had on the balcony of Longs Peak. The place was super cleaned when we arrived and had all that one would need while being away. The owner keeps it in shape and was very easy to make arrangements. Provided us with some helpful tips while we were there on hikes, places to eat and even learn some things. "Elk Jam" better know as traffic jam because people love to stop & take pictures of them while driving. Great rental and would highly recommend this property.

Super accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable, spotlessly clean and well-equipped cabin with superb views- ideally situated for access to the Rocky Mountain National Park. The booking process was handled pleasantly and efficiently and lots of useful information was provided once we had arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending this property

We had a wonderful time dating here

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and had a warm feel. Jay was very helpful and made our stay very welcoming. We liked the Other Side for breakfast and the Rock Inn (1 block walk) for dinner. Very close to RMNP. We will be back.

Great little cabin. It had everything we needed. Balcony overlooks a stream, plus a Longs Peak View - Who could ask for more. Thanks Jay for your hospitality. Looking forward to coming back to Estes Park.

Location

From the Owner

The property includes a home in which we live and garage with a loft apartment above it in addition to the cottage. We bought it as our retirement home because of its location and great mountain views. We have vacationed here regularly since 1970 and have always wanted to spend more time here.
