My wife and I started coming to Estes every few years back in the early 2000's. I like what James and Jeanine have done to bring the place back from the floods. The cabins are comfortable and , as the name implies, rustic. The cabins blend with the touch of mountain spirit all around you, and the simplicity is homey... More

My husband and I stayed here years ago and we loved it, this time we came back with our 2 dogs and had to leave early. We stayed in Cabin 8, within 15 minutes my eyes started itching and my nose was very stuffy, it just didnt feel clean. Every dish and pot we used we had to wash first... More

We always take all of the reviews to heart. What you forgot to mention was that Estes Park and the surrounding area does not have any snow. So the 50-60 mile an hour winds were blowing from the time you arrived until you left, kicking up dirt. We clean every cabin thoroughly between each guest. When we purchased the property... More

Deb and I wanted a different kind of Christmas without the yearly hassle of trying to get everyone in one place for at least Christmas day and presents and all the trimmings. It was also our wedding anniversary. What a pain? This year we did something different for our selves, we ran away to Rustic River Cabins and had a... More

Me and my husband came from St. Louis at the beginning of October. I had done my research online and found a few options near Estes Park, and the location is just perfect. About a 5 minute drive from downtown, actually. The campfire was the icing on the cake, especially next to such a pretty view. 5/5 stars, would recommend... More

We had a wonderful time around Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, and our cabin was the perfect resting spot. Cozy and comfortable, great hospitality - what more could we ask for in a cabin? Great for pets - our Shih Tzu was comfortable and had plenty of space for his walks. He loved going down near the river.... More

The wife and I wanted a little getaway. We wanted to get into the mountains of the National parks and see the views. We stayed in one of the cabins with a private hot tub. This was one of the major reasons we picked rustic river cabins. Our cabin overlooked the river, and while relaxing in the hot tub the... More

We rented a cabin for 7 wonderful and relaxing days, the cabins are older but well equipped, nice sheets and towels and the hot tub was wonderful, we could touch the mountain side from the hot tub. The cabin was just what I was looking for, very clean and comfortable. The cabins are close to town (3 1/2 miles) and... More

We were out with my brother and sister in law and stopped in to see if there were any cabins available as we didn't feel like driving back in to Denver. We had been to Rocky Mountain National Park and did some hiking. Luckily they had a cancellation. The cabins are so cute and cozy we ended up spending 3... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time. Estes Park is just up the road and we could zip in and out of town to go to the Safeway for grilling fixings and to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Very quiet and clean. Hot tub overlooking the river and the cliffs is just what you need after a day in the national park.... More
