Excellent stay at the end of our fall leaf trip through Colorado. Stayed here our last night after getting to see the Elk Rut in RMNP. Was fortunate to get such a nice cabin for only one night in Estes on a Friday night. Cozy cabin right on the river, not luxury, but what a cabin should be. The morning...

Thanks for the great review! The elk rutting season is truly a spectacular time of year and I'm glad you got to experience it even if for just a short time. Please come back and stay longer when you have the chance and we'll keep making the morning treats:)

My one word description"cozy". My husbands one word "fantastic". The weather was a bit chilly but the cabin was cozy and clean and the hot tub outside the door was fantastic and clean. The sound of the river rushing by was meditative. Easy drive to the RMNP without going thru town traffic. Best bakery in Estes at your door every...

Jim and Becky made us feel like family from the minute we checked in. They are very proud of the area and are constantly working on small improvements to enhance your stay. The cabin was very nice, clean and fairly well stocked. We cooked most of our meals in and there are also BBQ grills on site to use. Each...

The absolutely most relaxing place I have been to. You can be as active as you like, however, the invitation to relax is hard to deny. The inn keepers are available when needed and the service top notch! Fresh baked bread serve to your cabin every morning! YUM!

My wife and I stayed at River Spruce Lodge for a week in September. It turned out to be one of our favorite stays in Estes Park! The owners, Wendye and Shelley, were very friendly and accommodating. There were many nice little touches to the place that made it feel special, including fresh baked strudel cake every morning left by...

This place is incredible. We stayed in Tom-Tom, right on the river. The cabin has everything you'd need - we bought groceries on our way in and cooked a lot of great meals while we were here! From the beautiful views to the homemade baked goods every morning, it is a place of rest and relaxation, and the owners/caretakers are...

This was the find of a lifetime! River Spruce Cottages are the perfect location for so many reasons. We picked this for an annual mother/son camping trip with friends and couldn't be more pleased. They are located right on the Big Thompson River (as in only 15-20 feet from the front door of our cabin, Sunshine) where our teen boys...
