JULY 2013 - "Our vacation last week was absolutely amazing! We all loved the cabin and the scenery was beautiful . Our kids Caden 10 and Taylor 6 loved the futons and the patio out back...especially the big rocks to climb on. Rocky Mountain National park is so beautiful and we saw lots of elk,mule deer, a couple of big horn sheep just outside town and 4 moose on the other side of the mountains near Grand Lake. We had a blast hiking and doing lots of fun stuff at Fun City . Would love to come back anytime and would highly recommend Bear Paw to anyone.....much better than a hotel. Also was great to meet you and Marlo while we were there. You were both very nice and helpful with anything we had questions about! Look forward to coming back sometime!"

JULY 2013 - "Keith and I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay over the 4th of July weekend at your beautiful cabin in Estes Park. We loved everything about it. It was so nice in the mornings to sit in the sun room and have coffee and look out over the river. You have it so beautifully decorated which makes it feel so cozy. We felt so relaxed all weekend and thoroughly enjoyed everyday we were there. We look forward to staying at the Bear Paw Cabin again. Thank you for all the information you sent and especially the great directions you provided. We will look forward to spending more time at your cabin in the future."

JUNE 2013 - "Great location, great cabin, outstanding hosts!" "We stayed @ the Mahoney's Bear Paw in June and loved it. The cabin is just a couple miles outside of Estes Park tucked in next to the Big Thompson River. Very convenient to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, with the privacy of your own home. I can't say enough about the communications with our hosts, Conny & Craig. Every question (and we had a lot) was answered quickly and thoroughly. We highly recommend the Bear Paw!"

JULY 2012 - "I
wanted to thank you and Jimmy for making our Colorado vacation
absolutely wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your
adorable Bear Paw Cabin. It was perfect for our family. Our 8
and 4 year old loved sleeping on the futons. The tiled in
playroom was a perfect spot for our 4 year old to play and entertain
himself while we cooked, relaxed, and got things ready for our next
adventure. The mountains, rivers, and wildlife were amazing.
Jimmy of course was fantastic. He was so hospitable, very helpful
with advice on places and things to do, and he made us feel so welcome
with his overwhelming generosity of his time and willingness to let us
borrow his resource books! He was also so kind to offer to take a
picture of our family wearing his own personal cowboy hats."
"We feel so
blessed to have had the experience to spend time admiring the beauty of
God's magnificent creation that is found in Estes Park, Colorado.
We definitely hope to have the opportunity to come back again and
"Thank you again for an awesome experience and wonderful vacation! We wish you and Jimmy the very best!"

JUNE 2012 - "The
cabin was adorable! We enjoyed it very much. Everything we could
possibly need was available. The cabin was neat, clean and comfortable.
Jim was on hand as soon as we arrived with all the information we needed
and was extremely nice. We loved the location. The only thing I
can reccomend as an idea is a couple of small fans. Being backed against
the boulder no circulation seemed to flow as we went to bed. But that
did not stop us from having a great time. Of course as the night
went on the temperture got cooler. I give your cabin a ten and
would definately reccomend it to anyone and use you again." (NOTE: A fan was added)
The Kosiks - TEXAS
"Your cabin is a great deal! My wife, my baby and I had a great time
staying at Bear Paw Cabin on the River while we were taking a vacation
in Rocky Mountain National Park. Even though this cabin is in a small
community of other cabins, it was very peaceful. We certainly had all
the privacy we would want.
The cabin was clean. The cabin
has a great rustic charm. Everything a traveler could need is already
supplied in the cabin and it is very cozy. The kitchen was stocked with
everything we needed, the bed was very comfy.
We would definitely recommend this cabin and stay again.
You do a fantastic job keeping the property in great shape."

OCTOBER 2011 "I have been meaning
to drop you an email and tell you how much we enjoyed the cabin. It
was perfect and we had a great time. Fishing was great in front of the
cabin and really good upstream. RMNP was gorgeous and we hit the weather
just right ….18+ inches the week after we left!! I’ve attached a couple
of pics. Thanks again and we will definitely be back and we will highly
recommend the cabin to our friends and family!"

SEPTEMBER 2011 "My husband and I
returned from our trip on Saturday, Oct 1, 2011. We had a wonderful
time. John and Jim were wonderful to us and were so hospitable. They
made us laugh and gave us some tips for visiting the area. They insisted
upon taking pictures the day we left, with their hats on. My husband
really enjoyed them because they shared a love of fishing. It is
definitely a trip we will never forget!"
Jackie & Randell - Leesburg, GA
OCTOBER 2011 "Just wanted to say
thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful cabin. We had a really
wonderful time and the weather was just beautiful. Everything was
perfect. Also, neighbor Jim and John were awesome. They had lot of
information and they even helped teach my husband how to flyfish. They
are indeed very nice and very helpful. We really appreciated being able
to stay there on such short notice. (Loved the babbling brook just
outside the door)...Wow! We came home with several hundred
pictures...now the hard part of trying to decide which ones to keep.
Debbie & John - Rockford, IL
AUGUST 2011 "Our stay was GREAT. The cabin is lovely and well located. We always enjoyed coming 'home' at the end of the day's adventures.
We also want you to know how much we appreciated all that Jim and
John did to make our stay special, including getting us a great spot for
an Anniversary dinner. What nice guys! Again, thanks."
The Bermans from PA
AUGUST 2011 "We had a great time.
The cabin was charming, comfortable, and in a great setting. Very
nice rustic decor. Loved the blue ribbon fishing right out the front
door. I fished alot, Jen painted the gorgeous scenery. We really liked
the scenery in the park especially Dream Lake, but an unexpected
highlight, maybe THE highlight of the trip, was our experience with Jim
and John, next door. They helped us with everything. Fishing
pointers, to the extent of going with me and showing where and how to
fish for the conditions found. Very helpful since I'm fairly new to fly
fishing. Information about the town, the festivals going on, the
hiking and sites to see, places to eat.
We thought the park and town experience met expectations, the cabin
exceeded, and Jim and John were an unexpected bonus which made the trip
really standout, with memories to talk of for a long time. Thank you
Bob & Jen - Shawnee, KS

let you know what a great time we had at your cabin! It was very
comfortable and scenic. We really enjoyed Estes Park and RMNP. My
daughter and I ended up hiring a guide for an 8 hour trail ride and fly
fishing trip through Kirk's Fly Shop. We fly fished in Ouzel creek
above Ouzel Falls. Just incredible beauty and so much fun!"

you again for letting us stay at your cabin last week. It is very
comfortable and we felt right at home. We had a GREAT time in Estes.
The weather was perfect mid to upper 70's with 40's at night. My brother
Craig and his foreign exchange student Martin were successful in hiking
to Longs Peak. My sister Laurie and I did a couple of smaller hikes.
We met Kathleen and Dick they were very nice and helpful. Thanks again
for your Hospitality!"

was more than we had anticipated. Upon entering my wife was so taken

APRIL 2009 "We loved the cabin a
lot!!!!! I loved being on the river. Estes Park is just beautiful! We
didn’t get a chance to enjoy the park very much. We were too busy
running here and there. My husband home brews and we went to a lot of
breweries all over. We are thinking of retiring to Colorado. Estes
Park is now in the running!!!."

who takes care of everything just as we were leaving - what a sweet
lady! We had a lovely time, our son loved sleeping on the futon in the
TV room, he said that was his favorite part of the trip. We didn't see
any Bear which we were REALLY hoping to. Lots of Elk, Deer and Big Horn
though! Loved it! Thanks again for everything."

vacation, and had everything we needed at the cabin. We saw a lot of

are hard to fool) It was nice to sit out at night and enjoy the cool
weather, and hear the river. Thanks."

at the Bear Paw Cabin! I hope we get a chance to return sometime in the

white water rafting, and had a fly fishing lesson with the YMCA."

during June, 2008, and really enjoyed the cabin and Estes Park area. The
cabin has everything you could want to enjoy your stay in the Rockies!

natural beauty of RMNP. We would definitely stay again!"
Lezli C. - Sidney, IL

lovely. We watched the fish jumping right outside our cabin door! We

my first time out. We had a GREAT time."

place, we made a Memory!"

out. The large checkerboard and other games were a huge hit!" Next year
we will book for at least one week!"

MAY 2007 "The cabin was great.
It was set up much better than your typical rental. I go out to Estes
once or twice a year to fly fish so the location is the most important
feature that I look for. I thought the cabin was perfect for my needs
and represented a good value."
