Work has kept me busy and away from writing my review of our Paradise on the River stay in September, 2014, but this unforgettable resort has never left my mind since, and it's easy to fondly reflect on the details of our Colorado vacation even a few months later. This review is about our stay in Elk Crossing Cabin at... More

We've been to Paradise a few times and each time we leave I'm already planning the next visit. This IS paradise! All the cabins are beautiful. We've stayed in Elk Crossing, Riverbend and soon, Brookside and enjoyed every moment. The staff and owners make you feel at home the minute you get there and you truly don't want to leave.... More

Location of campground is convenient to both the National Park, as well as to the town of Estes Park, without being too close to the crowds. Wind River Cabin on... More

My husband and I stayed in the Rivers End cabin for 5 nights. It was amazing. The cabin was immaculate, well stocked and wonderfully decorated. The river runs by it. We sat on the deck and watched the elk come right up to the river and cabin. The location is perfect. Close to downtown Estes and the entrance to the... More

The weather was just perfect to enjoy all the outdoor activities at Paradise on the River: fishing in the brook, coffee on the deck, listening to the babbling brook, watching elk swim and elk bugle from across the river and smores around the fire pit. The hot tub was welcoming after hiking in Rocky Mtn. Park and the cottage was... More

THE place we've been looking for to hang our hat while hiking in Estes Park. Everything is perfect and we can hardly wait to get back! The staff is so helpful and we feel like we are HOME! Paradise on the River is quiet, peaceful and the best seat in Estes Park!

We stayed for 3 days, in the fawn view cabin. The service from staff was excellent, everything was very clean and well cared for in this small and homey place. The cabin was small, but comfortable for a family of 4, with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable furniture. We will definitely be returning. 2 days we enjoyed elk right... More

Wanted to take some friends of ours (from Texas) to see the fall colors and wildlife of Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park. Knew of this park but had never stayed there. Carol Stone arranged for an RV site directly on the river which had a deck, picnic table, and full hook-ups. This is one of the most beautiful RV parks... More

Great location near Trail Ridge Rd going through RMNPark and away from, but not far from busy downtown Estes Park. The cabin has a wonderful deck on the Big Thompson river where we relaxed and enjoyed the view. The living room has two comfy chairs and a full size couch that turns into a bed if needed and a flat... More

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Paradise on the River. Loved the sound of the river flowing by the deck, clean cabins, and friendly service. Our dog loved it too. Thanks for a great vacation. We'll be back!
