Estes Park Cabin

I was in charge of locating our home-away-from-home in Estes Park. It's hard to find a place - and know the quality of what you're getting - when you move away from hotel/motels/B&B's and start looking into cabins and single-family homes. On our last few trips, I've used TripAdvisor for opinions and reviews and have to say I've been very happy with the results.

After a marathon search (6 hours . . . ) and a lot of nail-biting, I finally settled on Solitude Cabins - and it was wonderful. Everything was super clean and well maintained, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The house we ended up with was two storieswith two bedrooms, two full baths, a great view from the upstairs balcony - rustic living room with fireplace, deck with grill and views of the neighborhood and mountains,

Addy was waving to her mom - we sent this photo to Rachel via cellphone

and plenty of room to stretch out in the evenings and just enjoy.
Such a lively bunch
The kitchen even had room enough for a bowling alley, Addy-style. Why waste time rolling the ball when it's so much faster (and more fun) to knock them down, up close and personal. As you can tell, Addy loves bowling.
