Liked the location, hot tub and the view of the creek. Great staff, but the bed was hard.

It was set back off the road right next to the river, lovely. The rooms are dated, but clean. Overall, a decent value for the money.

I loved our stay here! The location was beautiful with a river right outside of our door. Our lodge was so quaint! It had a Murphy bed and a gas fireplace. I would definitely visit again.

It is difficult to understand a marginal review without explination. This guest enjoyed a very quiet environment as the season is slow with the National Park being closed. There was confusion about the type of fireplace in the unit but we showed them the discription on the Expedia website. Some confusion about rates as they called Expedia for the booking and the agent forgot to quote the promotional rate, we adjusted the rate immediately for them. We checked on them a number of times and they explained that they were doing good and needed nothing.We do have a number of room sizes with variable rates they choose the most cost effective although we had a number of options at the promotional discount of 20% off.

Great cabin, great location, good service. Broken jets in hot tub and spotty wifi detracted a little.

Pros: Location, style, balconies, amenities such as fireplace, fridge, microwave.
Location: Very close to rocky Mountain National Park, easy access to the park was our reason for staying here. Cute town with several good places to eat.
Nice place in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed our stay here.
