My husband and I wanted a pretty place to spend our first anniversary. We had never stayed at a B&B before and chose Mountain River because of their wonderful reviews. They have really set the bar high for B&B's. No pictures of the rooms or property could do it justice. You just have to be there to experience it. We... More

Everything about the Mountain River Inn was amazing! Erin and Mark could not have made our stay any better. The view of the stars from the hot tub was breath taking.

My husband & I spent 5 nights here in early March & our stay could not have been more perfect.Due to a generous snowfall, everything was layered in white when we arrived. From the 14ers across the road to the river out back, it was incredibly beautiful. The first couple of days were very cold, but not to worry, we... More

From the moment you arrive at Mountain River Inn B&B you will be amazed. The entire package was worth every penny! You will not believe the how lovely the place is along the fast-flowing Arkansas River with its flower-filled deck that runs the entire length of the B&B. You will have your private exit to the back deck where so... More

It's no wonder that the Mountain River Inn is the #1 Bed and Breakfast in Buena Vista. Erin & Mark were such gracious hosts. They are very personable, great conversationalists, and know how to whip up a delicious breakfast. We stayed in the "Gone Fishin'" suite for a night on my wife's birthday while our kids were away with their... More

Thanks, Justin for the great review!! You are our first "Winter" review (we were closed last year for our extensive remodel we did).

This is a fantastic B&B. It sits right on the Arkansas River and has a beautiful deck with walking paths to the water. The house was recently renovated, and the quality of work and effort that Eirin and Mike put into the place really shows. The rooms are spacious, clean, and cozy. The property is quiet, but is only a... More

Thank you, Candide54 - Very happy you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for the outstanding feedback - it means a lot coming from seasoned B&B'ers.

By an incredible stroke of good fortune I found the Mountain River Inn available on Labor Day weekend and quickly snapped up a reservation. Mark & Erin provide not only the most perfectly ideal base camp for hiking local 14'ers (we did Mt Elbert), but also an incredible home. From the hot tub for those post-hike aches and the napping...
