Spent a weekend here on a family vacation. It was fabulous!
The cabin was absolutely gorgeous, impeccably clean and decorated for a comfortable rustic yet homey feel. The cabin had 2 king sized beds, a pull-out couch in the living room, 2 full baths (one with jacuzzi tub), an awesome propane grill on the patio, a gas fireplace, laundry, and every kitchen appliance and dish you can imagine. My family loves to cook and we could not get over how wonderfully equipped the kitchen was, with everything from and immersion blender, food processor, crock pot, to even a slap chop and an amazing collection of flatware and serving dishes.
The cabins they have are all pretty close together, so I don't know about solitude, but we didn't have any problems with noise. The property is really conveniently located right outside of the downtown Estes Park area, and just a few minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. It's just a stone's throw from a small lake.
My only minor complaints were that 1, the jacuzzi tub spewed weird black particles (lots of them), and 2 you have to make a reservation to use the hot tub.
Otherwise, it was just wonderful, and we all highly recommend the place.

This was our second stay here so we knew, more or less, what to expect. Cabin was very clean and nice. We were delayed in checking in due to the cabin still being cleaned but that was no big deal. Cabin was extremely clean and taken cared for. Overall the complex was very empty and quiet. All cabins are pretty much laid out the same and well stocked. Our only complaints were A) the beds were pretty hard (as were the pillows) and B) the furnace sounded like a jet airplane. Again, small items but for the location and relative quietness, our stay was fairly nice once again..

:: service was friendly and helpful
:: close to a lot of things: the town of Estes Park (couple of miles!), grocery store (Safeway), the Stanley Hotel, gas stations, and more
:: the place was super clean
:: free wifi that also worked great consistently
:: lots of extras in case you run out for toilet paper, tissue, etc
:: fully stocked kitchen was awesome. they had everything you needed to make delicious home-cooked meals: pots, pans, utensils, dining ware, cutting board, strainer, and more
:: full-sized fridge! awesome!
:: full-sized stove! awesome!
:: full-sized washer AND dryer!!! SO awesome!
:: garbage disposal in sink. awesome!
:: downstairs patio and upstairs bedroom balcony, both with dining furniture. nice quality (wood) and well-maintained. love it. great for watching the sunrise and the sunset!
:: flat-panel TV and cable
:: upstairs master bathroom was great...shower stall was huge and awesome, bathroom itself is also huge and awesome
:: comfy downstairs sofa
:: lots of windows throughout the cabin
:: you need reservations for the hot tub. some might think that sucks but i think it's terrific. that way you can have privacy instead of having the awkward moments of sitting with random people and having to make small talk as you are half-naked.
:: no a/c. it got a little warm in there but luckily at night the temperature dropped to cool things down
:: gas fireplace, not wood-burning. not a dealbreaker but it would have been super awesome to have a wood-burning fireplace, because i'd definitely want to go back in the chilly fall and cold winter. nothing beats the crackle of a real fire roaring in your livingroom!
:: the sofabed is awful. awwwwful. the springs are IN the mattress. normally you have a thin mattress over a springed platform. nope. this was a VERY thin mattress with the springs in it and you could feel them. no way in hell would anyone want to sleep on this thing. i ended up sleeping on the sofabed as a sofa, and my nephew ended up sleeping on one of the lazy boy chairs.
:: no recycling. what the?!
:: downstairs bathroom tub flooded every day. blech.
Would I go back? Most certainly. The place is terrific, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of Estes Park without having to be in the craziness of Estes Park.
This place is IN.
