I have stayed many times at River Spruce and it is absolutely AMAZING! We recently stayed in the Sunshine Cabin and it is perfect for a couple. We didn't need the trundle bed that was in the living room. The hot tub is right outside the cabin and close enough to the river that you can sit back and listen... More

We looooooved River Spruce! We stayed in the cabin they call Sunshine. It's very near to the river, has a hot tub, and has a fire ring with Adirondack chairs around the fire pit. There is a trundle bed in the living room (two twin beds) and a larger bed in the bedroom. You do have to go through the... More

We stayed in the TOM TOM cabin. It was very clean. The hot tub is properly maintained and was awesome after a days hike in the mountains. Wendy and Shell are awesome host and they bring fresh baked muffins to the cabin every morning but Sunday. My birthday occurred during our stay and they acknowledged it with a bottle of... More

After researching MANY places in Estes Park, we finally settled on River Spruce. We couldn't have had a better time! The owners were very welcoming and were happy to give recommendations of the best local attractions and trails to hike. Upon check in, we were impressed with how secluded it felt, despite being so close to Estes. The property was... More

I have been to Estes Park at least 7 times in the past 16 years. The River Spruce is, by far, the best place I've stayed while there. It is everything that comes to my mind when I think about cabins in the mountains. The 8 (I believe) cabins are just steps from the beautiful Big Thompson River. The cabins... More

River Spruce is a wonderful place! I will stay there every time I visit Rocky Mountain NP from now on. The cabins are clean and cozy, and right by the river. We had our own fire pit and adirondack chairs on the side of the river -- great for coffee in the morning. Wendye and Shelly are wonderful hosts. The... More

The hosts of River Spruce are very welcoming. You becomes friends, not just a guest. We were overwhelmed with the beauty of this location right on the river. Our cabin, Rainbow was small, but was perfect for the two of us. The sights and sounds of the river will lull you to a relaxed state of mine. Our fire pit... More

This place you can definitely relax, renew, and reflect! Our cabin was right at the river's edge. We loved hearing the water rush past the cabin. Elk came to visit across the river on 2 different days. The beds and pillows are very comfy. The hot tub was perfect after long days of hiking. We loved our stay. Next time... More

We just returned from our second visit to River Spruce. We missed Wendye and Shelly but the caretakers, Jim and Becky were very friendly and saw to our every need. The views are wonderful and our Tom Tom cabin had all the comforts of home PLUS a river, hot tub and fire pit. This property is perfect for couples AND... More

River Spruce Cabins are located right on the river in a beautiful, serene setting. This is our second stay at River Spruce and we will never stay anywhere else while in Estes Park. The owners and staff go above and beyond in making you feel comfortable and welcome. We left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated!
