Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and were so happy with our stay! Joe was absolutely the best host, and even had sparkling wine waiting for us when we got to the cabin! He took time to show us around the cabin and gave us great recommendations for town! The Cabin was the most cozy and homey place. It's in a quiet spot on the river and let me tell you there is nothing more peaceful than falling asleep to the sound of the soft flowing river. There is even a porch overlooking the river which is such a perfect spot for morning coffee. This place is in a great spot right by town, only took us a couple of minutes to drive into downtown. We had the best time here and will definitely stay here again next time we visit Estes Park!

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Curtins Hitching Post to celebrate his 40th birthday! We loved it! The cabin was very clean and furnished with everything we needed. We really enjoyed staying in the beautiful Big Thompson Canyon. We had a great time fishing and hiking. The cabin was in a perfect location...very close to town, but still felt secluded in the canyon. Joe was a great host! We would definitely stay here again.

We rented this cabin for our kids when they came to visit. They LOVED it. Cool mornings and evenings by the river and so quiet. They said the bed was so comfortable and the place was very clean. Joe was such a great host. They even had a port-a-crib for the baby. We will definitely reserve this cabin again as we plan on having the kids out yearly. Also, the decor was just charming and rates were very reasonable. Highly recommend this cabin for a great stay.

Curtins Hitching Post a real find!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! We checked in with a very gracious Joe on Sunday for our 4 day stay in Estes Park. The cabin is just a 5 minute drive out of town, right on the Big Thompson River. The cabin was immaculately clean and well presented. The kitchen was recently remodeled and all the appliances appeared brand new. We stocked up the refrigerator with our supplies and enjoyed every meal out on the deck, watching and listening to the river flow by. The whole time we were there we saw maybe two or three other people walk by on the road in front and only one other car. Perfect solitude and still only 5 minutes from town and about 15-20 minutes to the RMNP entrance. There were just the two of us, which was just perfect for the cabin.

All in all, it was just what we needed and I would definitely stay here again.
