“Big Family's Can Too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

When I had the option to rent the "Rockin River" cabin, I was a bit hesitant due to the fact that the units didn't look like they could hold a big family; Boy was I wrong! We have a teenager, a 7 yr old, a 16 month old, and then 8 month old twins and it is almost impossible to find room for us when on vacation in Estes unless we rent a home.

This cabin had 3 big beds, a fold out couch, and then had enough room left for 2 pack-n-plays. The cabin was directly at the river but the porch around the cabin was great for holding in our little eager beaver with little space between slats. The grill was big enough to cook steaks, burgers, hotdogs, and corn at the same time. The kitchen had everything we needed for our meals and everything is in the top drawers so we didn't have to worry when our toddler opened the bottom ones. The flat screen TV was great for those cartoons that typical kids have to have and it came with a Blu-Ray/DVD player. The bathroom was smart as the sink and mirror are closed off from the toilet and bath with a door but you can also close the main door and have access to both.

The manager was very sweet and had no problem lending us some condiments and even coming late at night to change the outside light and even helped us start the grill! I would, without a doubt, stay here again and very glad that my husband insisted that we rent the cabin. We will be back soon!

Room Tip: Try to get the "Rockin River" cabin or another one close to the river. The view is amazing...

After a lot of research, I chose Brynwood on the River for our vacation. The staff was very personable and friendly. The cabin was clean and we enjoyed our time there. The children enjoyed the outside area and the river area. Having a screened porch was an extra touch and it was nice to relax in the evening there. We did not use the gas grill but it was nice to have it there. The place is also close to town so easy access to stores, restaurants, etc. We were there during the Elk Fest. I would recommend to anyone!

I love this place. Yes, it is a bit more pricy than a cabin that is several generations old should be, but it is clean, staff is friendly, and if you stay later in the year, quiet.
I have stayed in the Cuddle Cove and Sleepy Hollow. Both are roomy enough for 2. The Cuddle Cove does slant down towards the bathroom, which can be fun to watch something roll away from you. My partner and I have stayed here two years in a row in early September to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. This is a great location for shuttle service. The shuttle to the park is just next to the cabins on the main road. Did I mention the hot tub? After a long day hike, there is nothing better than to soak your sore limbs in a nice hot tub, even in the rain.
I would recommend this place. I have not stayed in the newer rooms, but the cabins by the pool are clean, comfortable and convenient.

We did not originally choose Brynwood on the River, however we were moved to these accommodations when we had a maintenance problem with the original property we'd booked. Turns out we loved Brynwood! The owners were attentive and caring people who treated us kindly. The kitchen was modern and clean. The living room was small but had comfortable furniture and a welcome fireplace with wood provided at no extra charge. The bedrooms were quite large with comfortable mattresses - we got a very good night's sleep each night. We opened the windows each afternoon to let the cool air in and used the fireplace and heater at night. We had a private hot tub on the deck that was perfect for soaking out those sore muscles from hiking during the day. Although we never had a chance to utilize it, they have an outdoor heated pool for guests as well. The wireless internet worked well once we got the correct passwords.

The river was a short walk from our cabin. It's got a rocky shore so it's not real easy to get down to the water, but it's very peaceful to sit on the rocks near the river. A pack of coyotes ran through the property one evening, howling like crazy! We heard elk bugling in the distance each night. We'd definitely choose Brynwood on the River again.

Room Tip: A room by the river would be preferable but we'd still book here even if the cabin wasn't ri...

We stayed at the Brynwood over Labor Day weekend and the place is spectacular! The views are amazing and the scenery is second to none! The cabins were spotless, and the Managers were overly friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend this place, we will go back each year! This is a romantic hideaway for couples or a great place for families!!

Room Tip: The Raging River cabin was charming, clean and quaint. The River noises are calming and serene!

This property is located out of the busy Estes Park downtown along a pretty river. We stayed in one of the motel rooms for a much more reasonable price than some of the other places in town. The room was very clean, had wifi and good airflow through the unit. There is an a/c unit if you need it, but we used the screen front door and opened a back window and were comfortable. This motel is very close to the entrance to the national park, so you can come and go easily. This is an older property, but well kept up and the managers and employees are very friendly, helpful and approachable. Very nice.

My husband and I recently vacationed in Estes Park and stayed at the Brynwood on the River. It is has cute little cabins that are feet from the river with beautiful views on the mountains. The managers were very nice. We loved the hikes they had recommended. The cabins are decorated with different themes. We picked the Cowboy themed cabin,it had a fireplace, a nice kitchen with all the comforts of home, and the bed was very comfortable. There was also a hotub and pool at the resort as well as a private hottub for us to relax in. We completely loved our time there and are looking forward to our next trip. I highly recommend the Brynwood.

Room Tip: Rooms closest to the river are my favorites
