“Thoughtful touches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2005

We stayed in the two new rooms (one with a king, one with a queen) at the Room at the River (used to be called Meister House), which is just down the road from Liar's Lodge. This inn is literally right on the Arkansas River, away from town and the main road. Very quiet. A deck faces along the river, furnished with tables and chairs outside each room. We were served breakfast outside; three courses plus juice, coffee and tea. Delicious. The new rooms are very nice, good beds, every convenience: robes, frig, micro, no TV, cards, magazines, coffee maker and coffee, a bowl of candy, shampoo and conditioner. The king room has a claw-foot tub as well as a shower. I believe there was a TV in the common room, but who needed it? We didn't use the hot tub, but we roasted marshmallows in the firepit, and swung on the swing down by the river. One of our party fished and caught several trout. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Colorado, and a great inn.
