This is a great little hideaway. It's very close to the entrance of rmnp which is exactly what we were looking for. It's simple, small, and cozy.

I had a great stay. The location is excellent - it is close to downtown without actually being in the middle of the hustle and bustle, and the Fall River entrance to RMNP is just around the corner. The place is well-stocked and had everything I needed. The patio is lovely and is a great place to sit outside in the morning or evening. The grounds are landscaped beautifully, and the flowers and planters were a nice little touch to help make the patio enjoyable. A weird little bonus for me was how soft and cushiony the carpet was - it felt great under my sore feet after long days of hiking!

We absolutely loved staying at the Bunkhouse. It was private and secluded but also within walking distance to town and quick and easy access to RMNP. We loved how quiet it was and it provided a great opportunity to relax and soak in the peaceful atmosphere after long days in the park. The Bunkhouse was great and Denice and Brian were so responsive and attentive to every detail from biscotti in coffee cups to maps for the park and local attractions. Great!

We loved our stay at the Bunkhouse and look forward to our return. It's in a great location, about 4 miles from the Fall River entrance and just a short walk to either the gold or red shuttle lines. You can't beat the view and it was situated away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The cabin has everything you need for the weekend. All spices, cooking supplies, and linens were provided. There's even a washer and dryer if you're staying for an extended visit. The hosts were great! They were so easy to work with as far as when we were going to arrive on the shuttle from the airport and when we would need to check out.

We loved this charming place. The location could not be beat and we enjoyed seeing a doe visit the front porch! The bakery across the street is awesome if you love cinnamon and pecan rolls. Very close to Safeway, Starbucks, and RMNP park entrance where you can see a herd of elk hanging out, owning the place. The cabin had all the supplies you could ask for to cook a meal for two and great internet and cable. We will recommend to our friends!

We visited Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park during the high season. While Estes and the park were crazy busy, the Bunkhouse was quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle. The location was perfect to getting to almost anywhere in the park. While it is in walking distance to town, it seemed like a longer walk than expected. It wasn't a problem as we didn't spend much time in town and when we were there it was at off times so parking wasn't an issue. Check in was easy. The washer/dryer were a great perk. And we made use of the grill for meals. And even though there are 3 units in the bunkhouse, we never heard any of the other guests! The single unit provided everything we needed. Note that the kitchen is more of a kitchenette. Mini-fridge and 2 burner/sink unit combo. Adequate for a preparing simple meals a couple. The bed was VERY comfortable and the carpeting was the softest I've ever walked on! Lots of plugs for charging devices and a nice hutch provides places to put "stuff". The bathroom (toilet and shower) is small but the vanity is large and well-lit. Cinnamon's Bakery is across the street and yes people do get in line at 0700 even though they don't open until 0730. We liked our stay and would recommend it to others.

Denise and Brian have a fantastically located cabin (the bunkhouse). It's close to town and to RMNP. It's furnished with all the amenities (and then some) you might need and you'll find it spotless. Loved the availability of the washer/dryer too.
