We are from flatland Illinois & had never been to Colorado....we visited Estes Park & stayed in Chickadee Cottage from July 21-26, 2018...WE HAD THE BEST VACATION EVER ! We loved Chickadee Cottage and the BEAUTIFUL views of the surrounding mountains...it was our "home away from home" to explore Estes Park & Rocky Mtn. National Park...we appreciated all of the amenities the cabin had...and especially liked that we could cook meals in the kitchen area....the Cottage has a touch of home: complete with dishes/silverware/cups/cooking utensils, & even a hair dryer/iron, if you forgot those....the cabin was a little tight for 4 of us girls, but we weren't in the cabin that much....on the go to see the sights! Terry, the co-owner, was so welcoming when we were there--was always available if we needed something....the flower baskets at each cottage are BEAUTIFUL--& Hummingbirds come around early in the morning....nothing we didn't like about our stay at Chickadee Cottage.....we plan to stay there in the future, as a stopping point for a future trip to the West Coast, maybe next summer....P.S. We saw Moose at Sprague Lake one morning while hiking....what a awesome experience!
