My mom, dad, daughter (age 11) and I all enjoyed the cabin over Christmas. It was perfect. I enjoyed that it was so close to town (we walked to dinner one night and enjoyed the holiday lights). I also enjoyed the “cabin” feel without having to be out and away too far. But, it was “away” enough that there were plenty of outdoor activities nearby. We snow shoed in Rocky Mt. National Park; and hiked a local Estes park hike on Christmas day, topped of with seeing a small herd of elk up close.
The cabin is warm and the kitchen is fully equipped (we fixed our Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas breakfast and dinner). Our host/owner was wonderful – he expertly matched our physical abilities (range of 60s years to 11 years) to the properly challenging, beautiful, and doable hikes/snowshoe trips.
The youth bed is definitely for a youth. My daughter is pretty tall for a 11 year old, and it was a little small. However, it wasn’t that bad – because she asked me to trade her for one night, so I personally slept in the bed. Wouldn’t recommend it for an adult 🙂 But, our stay was so perfect, that was hardly a problem. Just make sure it is a good fit for your family.
I would return there every Christmas with my little family if I could. Highly, highly recommended.
