Woodland Park Yurt or Estes Park Cabin?

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Colorado with husband and son who will be almost 3. We will have 4 days between June 4-8th. We were thinking of camping but we've nixed that plan. An earlier posting gave me lots of great ideas but due to a variety of reasons we're back to square one. People have directed us towards Estes Park. But I recently found a yurt in Woodland Park that looks nice. Wondering which direction to go.

I am drawn to EP b/c of being able to pass through Boulder from Denver to see the town. The river, the views. We would do easy hikes.

I am drawn to WP b/c of proximity to Garden of the Gods as a day trip and Pike's Peak. But I hear WP is a dreary town. Is that true?

We don't need fancy food. But we like a good charming town with a local coffee shop and a brew pub if we were so to be so lucky!

As an aside, one of the reasons I'm having trouble committing to EP is because I can't find a cabin that has nice furnishings! Unfortunately I'm VERY picky about the furnishing of where I stay. I either want bare bones tent or if I'm paying $$ to stay somewhere I want attractive furnishings. Thus far I'm finding it hard to get excited about paying $200/night for ugly plaid couches and boring rooms. :(

Suggestions much appreciated as always.
