PLUSES: Like all the cabins on the grounds, stepping into Cabin # 4 is like going back in time. The view was unobstructed from the large windows and the large private deck was a plus, as was the clean grill. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of dishes. There were pots and pans for cooking just about anything...

I am stunned to read the review titled "A Pit From Hell". I've never written a review before, but am compelled to do so, as we are currently vacationing in cottage # 12 and it is charming. Yes, it is older and rustic, but that adds to the charm. It is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The rooms are nice...

I was very pleased to read the review from the guest who was staying in Cottage 12. I am very glad she liked the cottage, and I was stunned, as she was, to read the review titled " A Pit from Hell". Cottage 12 is one our smaller 2 bedroom cottages, and one of the few cottages that is not...

Cabin # 12 looked nothing like the advertised brochure, period. It was dark, the carpet was dirty and needs to be replaced, the beds were unacceptable and my wife tripped over rolled back carpet entering the cabin. We walked in, looked around, walked out and told Lee the owner we would not stay there. Now, before you judge the writer...

On TripAdvisors home page for Machin's Cottages there is a picture of a living room of a cottage. This is Cottage 12, and is the one this person would not stay in, and says it should be condemned. This picture was sent to TripAdvisor by a guest who was pleased with this cottage. As you can see in the picture...

Our good friend booked us four night here and we loved every minute. From first finding the road and then realising that it just was a collection of cottages at a dead end, the excitement mounted. Mr Machin was delightful. The cabin we had (11) was spotless, but like a trip back in time. We LOVED it. To play with...

We are very pleased that these guests enjoyed Cottage 11. We are glad they had a great time walking to Moraine Park on the Rocky Maintain National Park trail that starts at the edge of our property. Our cottages are located in the Park on the East edge. The same day we got this very nice review, we got a...

This was our first stay here and will not be our last. This is a hidden gem of a place in Estes Park. Mr. Machin has taken great care of this property , from the upkeep of the cabins and grounds to the over all stocking of the kitchens , books and cleanliness. The decor is a throw back to...

Our 3rd stay here and it was perfect. It's not on the heavily traveled main road (in fact, it is literally "at the end of the road") so it is truly relaxing. The cabins are older but are VERY well kept and have everything you need. (microwave, coffee maker, oven, stove, refrigerator/ freezer and all pots/pans and cooking utensils you...

We appreciate very much that these guest stated that the cottages were older, but very kept. We spend much time and money every year to keep the cottages in very good condition. We are proud of of our place, and we spare no effort to have the cottages in tip top condition. We are pleased that these guests recognize this....

We spent a family vacation in Estes park over the 4th of July, which is a crazy time in that area. We were quite relieved to arrive at Machins Cabins--on the south side of the city, up a hill and very removed from the busy traffic of Estes park. Check in was quick and easy, and Mr. Machin was very...

This was our second visit to Machin's Cottages. Off the beaten path, it is quiet, serene, and a wonderful place to escape for a week, away from all the hustle and bustle. The cabins nestled in the tall pines and boulders. Well appointed kitchens with everything you need to cook any meal, just add food. Clean, rustic, with a feel...

We are very sorry that these guests found the beds to be too firm. The beds in all of our cottages are firm. We have found that most guests do not want soft beds, but want firm beds. We have vinyl covers on all of the mattresses, in order they do not get ruined when a child wets a bed....

They have 1,2, and 3 bedroom cottages on a side street that is away from the town. The elevation is about 8000' feet above sea level and you are amongst the pine trees and Rocky mountains. Each cabin is fairly secluded and the neighbors are far enough away. This location is within the Rocky Mountain National Park and there are...

My soul is happier after a week at Machin's Cottages this May. Nestled in Ponderosa Pines, and big boulders, Cabin #5's deck is the perfect vantage point for wildlife viewing and bird-watching. The first morning, a herd of Elk paraded up the Beaver Creek draw- about 100 cows with babies. Throughout the week, groups of elk and deer passed through,...
