Cozy and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. Very close to RMNP. Well equipped for those flying in who can't bring bedding, towels, cooking essentials. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Had everything!

  • 5 of 5

I spent five peaceful days on a personal spiritual retreat. The cabin was ideal for this: from the quiet, the deck, the view, the fireplace and the privacy, I couldn't have asked for more. The herd of elk one morning across the street and the beautiful birds in constant attendance added much to my soulful time. I will be back.

Immaculate cabin, wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Estes Park many times over the years and this was easily the cleanest, quietest, best equipped cabin in which we've stayed.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Immaculate, quiet, great view, convenient to park entrance so you don't have to hassle with town traffic. Great restaurant/tavern within 500 ft.

Jay, the owner, is a class act. Not intrusive but there if you need him.

Highly recommend.

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!)

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.
