While staying at the Victorian on the Cottonwood Creek, may we make the following suggestions….
If you would like to use the charcoal grill, remember to bring briquettes and lighter fluid. If there is high fire danger, outdoor grilling may be prohibited. Always attend an open fire in Colorado.
The beautiful Cottonwood Creek is in the back part of your backyard. Never leave children unattended in the yard as the creek is rushing and can be dangerous if anyone accidentally falls in. Do not play on the banks.
Cell service works from most providers & we provide high-speed Internet and cable.
Bringing pets requires prior approval. Base rate includes four guests and the Queen and King beds prepared. If you need additional beds made or have more than four people, please notify us. There is a $10 charge/person for 5 or more due to extra linens and cleaning.
