Excellent location and very quiet. Spacious and the interior decor is very interesting. It’s a bit difficult to locate all the light switches though

We loved the house. We did have a small issue with how dirty the home is. It could really use a DEEP clean more often. We found someone's dirty socks and the fans and furniture was so dusty it kicked up allergies.
But we did love our stay, location, neighbors and size was all perfect. We loved the short walk to down town and all the unique history of the home! We would probably stay again.

No timely response from the property management, the number they provided on the receipt doesn’t work, you could only leave voicemail.
Fans were very really small, not enough for a room.

Rest everything was okay, Kitchen was well equipped, they had plenty of board games, location was also good.

We stayed at the Clatworthy cabin hosted by Ponderosa Realty. The cabin was located on the side of a hill in an area near other nice cabins. It is just up the hill and walking distance from the Estes Park shops and restaurants. Staying here was like staying in a museum! So much interesting history to this place. It was very cozy with a gas fireplace and sitting area. Some of the beds were more comfortable than others, but we were 6 adult size people and all had a place to sleep. We did a lot of cooking and baking since we were here for Christmas during the pandemic and the kitchen was very well equipped. You will be happy staying at the Clatworthy Cabin. We will definitely be back.
