I began this review after arrival the first day at this resort. It was not what we expected but I decided to give it some time before I finished the review. We rented the WIND RIVER COTTAGE B&B ROOM at this resort. This resort is sad and tired and needs renewing, but that would take a lot of effort. And... More

We LOVED our stay at Dripping Springs Resort's Willow cabin! We could hear the river rushing outside all night, and it was heavenly to nap with the breeze blowing by and the dappled sunshine drifting through the trees. The cabin is super cozy and furnished with rustic decor...even a vintage freezer/fridge that makes you feel like a time traveler. I... More

We stayed in the Canopy Room for 3 days for our honeymoon. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and John showed us to our room. It was comfortable and cute and we felt right at home! Janie, Oliver and John were always very friendly and helpful with anything you needed! Plus Janie makes the most incredible breakfast every morning!... More

My wife and I stayed at the Dripping Springs Resort for 2 nights, and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was very comfortable, and the SleepNumber bed along with a private hot tub were perfect for unwinding after a day hiking. This riverside resort provided a delicious breakfast to fuel up for your day, and the owners Janie... More

Staying at Dripping Springs was the best part of our family vacation. The Alamo cabin was perfect for our small family and so relaxing! We used the private fire pit every night, relaxed in the hot tub, and enjoyed the scenery non stop. Yes, you don't get the best wifi reception which was hard to get used to at first,... More

We had a wonderfully quiet, romantic get-away weekend here. The room was charming, impeccably clean, very comfortable, and private. Every possible detail was thought of and available, from a utility knife to a grill with tools. The staff is quite personable and the breakfast is fantastic (and varied). We will definitely come back!

A couple of shortcomings here are you cannot have family or friends over and connectivity. The rules are guests can have no guests. Luckily we had family stay at another place where we could gather. The Wi-Fi is not functional and phone service is limited. Good if you want to be away from technology but bad if you need some... More

Most of our guests don't call us average, although our pricing is about average for Estes Park. I want to address connectivity. We have 3 DSL lines and multiple repeaters on our property. That being said, we are only able to receive 5 megabits out here in the wilderness. And yes phone service is spotty. We do not claim to... More

We have stayed here three times and have always felt so welcome and at home! We stayed in the Alamo cabin and it is now our favorite. It is perfect for a couple's retreat. The cabin is isolated and is enclosed within a wall which surrounds a courtyard with a wood burning fireplace. There is a porch/patio with a hot... More

When we arrived, we were greeted pleasantly and the hospitality never stopped. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about the RMNP and suggested many great hikes. The food was fantastic, and the rooms were pleasant. I cant say enough about how enjoyable the staff made the trip.
