We stayed four nights last October and can hardly wait to stay here again. The first night my husband and I stayed in the Night Owl. It was great to see and hear the river right outside the kitchen window and screen door. We used the screened porch area to place luggage and coats out of our way, and it was nice to have the little desk out there for looking over the amenities of the area. The bathroom was a pleasant surprise as it was roomy, updated, and very clean (as are all of them) The next 3 nights we stayed in the Blue Spruce. Like the Night Owl (and every other cabin) the Large cast iron farm house sink harkened us back to simpler times and the large stone fireplace cranked out the heat for our s'mores. We found this cabin somehow cozier than the Night Owl. The Blue Spruce doesn't have an enclosed front porch off the living room, but who would want one in that cabin? It's right next to the river with incredible mountain views! My son and brother stayed in the Eagle's Plume and it was very roomy and nice. They LOVED it! We have also stayed at the YMCA of the Rockies which was nice, but if you want a more quaint setting on the water .... WOW, this place can't be beat for the value and feel. If you're looking for a resort with luxury keep looking, but if you want to feel like you are part of the local environment and history of the area, look no further. LOVE his place and hope it never goes away.
