The self checkin/checkout procedure was easy and convenient. The decor of the cabin was charming. However, the cabin itself was dusty to the point that it triggered our allergies. Given the later checkin time and earlier checkout time than standard hotel and the fact that we are in the midst of a pandemic in which most places are doubling down on cleaning procedures, this cabin did not meet expectations. We brought wipes to hit all of the high touch areas once upon arrival and were dismayed by how discolored our wipes turned just on surfaces and switches. As we spent more time in the cabin we noticed the heavy layers of dust on the decor, the bathroom fan, window sills, extra kitchen fan stools etc.... The large quantities of dust triggered allergies for our entire family. Honestly, I don't think it had been thoroughly cleaned in over a year. I did report the state of the cabin when we checked out, so that it could be cleaned prior to the next guests, but it shouldn't have been in a state that required reporting. In all of our travels to all sorts of accommodations, I don't remember anything making me feel so uncomfortable that I wanted to check out a night early. (We were only booked for 2 nights). The staff was quick to respond to my notification, but that was too late to help us at all. I would not recommend staying here, at these prices when basic cleaning couldn't be maintained. Especially since they charge a cleaning fee for each booking and don't clean.

Thanks for leaving us a review. We do use a disinfectant mister after cleaning the cabin to ensure all surfaces are sanitized and commonly touched surfaces are also wiped down. The decor and surfaces that are more out of reach aren't always dusted, but we will notify our housekeeping to address that issue more moving forward.

The best thing I can say about this pathetic joke of a cabin motel is that the springs in the mattresses feel to be 20 years old. When management was notified of drunken young men partying all night they did absolutely NOTHING!!! Except to say we can talk about it in the morning. I was forced to confront them personally in order to end all the disturbance that had been going on for hours. GEE nothing could have gone wrong there could it. Who would have been liable then I wonder. I ended up leaving in the middle of the night to find some place to get a decent night rest. the next day when I tried to contact management they refused to talk or return 3 phone calls even though I was told they would. Is that the kind of management in a an establishment you want to stay in? I strongly encourage everyone to avoid this place like the plague!

Dear Mr Collins, Thank you for your response. Your neighbors did apologize for keeping you up, and said they went inside right away once you spoke to them. As well, management is also sleeping aat that time, but apologizes for not being able to get to you in the 14 minutes between your calls at 2:47 and 3:01AM. For reference, the neighbors on the other side were not inconvenienced. We take great pride in our guest care, our tiny-home style cabins, and our establishment in our 4th year of operation, and we are sorry to hear it did not work out for you. We recognize that not every guest is a fit for us, and wish you the best in your future stays elsewhere.

PROS: The staff is super friendly. The chalets are very cute and clean. The adventure courses looked amazing. It’s close to some fabulous restaurants and shops in Idaho Springs. CONS: No air conditioning, so I think it would be better to stay here during cooler months. The place is very close to the highway, so heavy road noice with windows open. The pillows were very thin. Side note: A previous review stated that there weren't any kitchen towels or dish soap, but we had both. The chalet had everything we needed.
