We stayed 3 nights in the Wapiti Cottage the last weekend of the season (Columbus Day weekend in October). It was the last weekend the shuttles go to the park so the cottage is the perfect location. You can walk down the hill for food and coffee in 10 minutes. (Inkwell and Brew Coffee was super close and was great)....

Thank you for the taking to write a review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our Wapiti Cottage. Glad you found Inkwell and Brew Coffee...it's an awesome place for coffee and to just hang out by the river (really cool greeting cards as well). Good for you in taking advantage of the location and keeping the car parked....

We stayed in the Golden Leaf Cottage. We went to Estes Park for a wedding. The cottage was more than I expected. It was great for our family. It had everything we needed. It was located close to town. If I go to Estes Park in the future I would definitely stay at the River Rock Cottages. I will reccomend...

I needed a place that had a full size refrigerator as I was doing a wedding cake for a friend's wedding at The Stanley. Wapiti cabin was just perfect!! It was clean, comfy and cozy. The price was right too! Will definitely stay at River Rock again!

The Wapiti cottage was much nicer than staying in a hotel; clean, cozy, comfortable. Easily accessible to downtown yet far enough away to be quiet, the view spectacular. What a treat to wake to the sound of elk bugling right next to the cottage. I would highly recommend staying at the River Rock Cottages and would not hesitate staying there...

There's nothing like a visit to Estes Park in the fall and experiencing the elk bulging. They're still at it and will be for a few more weeks! We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay and you found our Wapiti Cottage cozy and clean. Hope you can make it back again soon. ~ Carolyn

My husband and I stayed in Evergreen for 2 nights in mid Sept. This studio cottage is a prize... about the size of a standard hotel room but so much better. Absolutely immaculate and beautifully decorated with nice amenities, a very comfortable bed, and lots of windows with light blocking shades. A second sink located outside the bathroom is a...

My friend and I stayed one night in the Evergreen cottage (the smallest on the property). I chose River Rock, as I had stayed in a larger cottage a few years ago with a larger group of friends. Both experiences were wonderful. The location is great, as we could walk right down the hill to town for shopping and dining....

We were 2 adults staying in the Fern cabin.

We rented The Fern Lake cottage for 3 nights mid September. The cottage has anything/everything you need. Super clean and very quiet. The location is great, just a few minutes drive to the RMNP entrance, and a few minutes walk to the restaurants and shops in town.

Combine a clean and comfortable cottage with a short walk to main street (it is a bit of a hill coming back) and friendly owners and you get an awesome stay in Estes Park. Would certainly return for another stay.

By far the best place to stay in Estes Park. The rooms and the property were all very clean and well thought-out. Booking, checking in/out all top-notch! An easy walk to town. I bumped into one of the hosts and had a great conversation - very friendly!
