River Spruce Cabins is the perfect little get away! The cabins are cozy, comfy and clean. The staff is ready and willing to help or chat without being intrusive. Those fresh baked homemade muffins delivered to the cabin in the morning were absolutely scrumptious! The view is spectacular and the sound of the river invigorating! Absolutely coming back! Absolutely recommend... More

We (4 kids, 2 adults) really enjoyed the Tom Tom Cabin at River Spruce! Our hosts were very pleasant and helpful. The muffins were amazing! Perfect location for access to the Rocky Mts and Estes Park, Thank you!

Our first experience in Colorado will not be our last. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Not much more we could have asked for. The rooms were rustics and clean. The location ideal. Located a few miles outside of town on the Big Thompson river (20 feet from our cottage) and only a few miles from Rocky Mountain State... More

River Spruce Cabins were the perfect spot for me while I was in Estes Park. These cabins are secluded yet close to town and all the activities...also close to the Rocky Mountain National Park South entrance. The Big Thompson River rushed and roared past my cabin - only about 15 feet away and the air was scented with pine/spruce. The... More

Imagine warm baked goods delivered fresh each morning, roaring rapids or lazy river, depending on the season, just twenty feet away from your door step and hummingbirds feeding outside your window and you will have a feel for River Spruce Lodge. Shelly and Wendye make you feel at home, which leads to repeat lodgers each year and the moniker "family."... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River Spruce. Our cabin (Rainbow) was well equipped and very clean. The surroundings are beautiful and the way the cabins are set by the river gives it a feeling of being in the woods, even though it is just off a road. We enjoyed the hot tub and the great muffins that were delivered... More

The property itself is magical. The cabins are private, clean, roomy and every detail is attended to. The owners are what make this place truly a paradise. I've never stayed somewhere where the customer is this much of a king. The fresh, hot baked goods delivered most mornings was something we really looked forward to. The private hot tub, fire... More

This is a great place to stay. We were their for 3 nights mid June and were treated great. Quite and private. The private hot tubes are awesome after a long day of hiking. I cant imaging any place better, plus you cant beat the price. FYI the breakfast muffins are the best.

First, let me start by saying that I found the River Spruce and made my decision to stay based on the wonderful reviews here. I chose the Tom Tom because of the patio right on the water and we were not disappointed. Probably the most private cabin on the property. First of all, many places claim to be waterfront and...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I'm glad you got to see the busy hummingbird season and visit our local brews:) They are talking about adding a couple more local breweries and a distillery to Estes Park so there'll be plenty of new places to visit when you return. More

We had a wonderful time in a beautiful setting; we plan to return to the tranquil River Spruce again and again. The pleasure we shared from listening to the river rushing downstream, the humming birds zipping past and the songs sung by other birds perched high in the branches of the many trees provided the escape for which we were...
