“Unromantic, feels like you're constantly being watched.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This place was a total let down from start to finish, with a few lovely surprises thrown in. The beginning of our stay was a day later than expected, due to a problem with scheduling (an honest mistake) which was corrected and even though we couldn't stay there we found another great place to go for the first night, The mountain valley home B&B. Because of this mistake, Mary, who is an absolute sweet heart, paid for us to have a romantic candle lit dinner. I highly reccomend this if you get the chance, everything was perfect! You are a wonderful chef and hostess!
My biggest issue with our stay was Dianne, she was very nervous and almost controling and put us on edge just being in the same room as her and other guests we spoke to felt the same way. Dianne, you are definitely in the wrong business...
We asked if she could please make more coffee at about 2:30 in the afternoon and instead of doing so she walked back into the kitchen without saying a word and watched us stand around for 10 minutes waiting for it. When we finally asked she looked shocked and annoyed and told us "well we don't make coffee more than once, so once it's gone it's gone". Seriously how hard is it to make coffee? She also gave us an incomplete room tour which ended with shutting the door on me while I was in the middle of asking you a question, frankly she came across as strange, insecure, and infectiously uncomfortable.
We stayed in two separate rooms due to last minute booking on our part, the first of which was a cabbin off the main house. It was decently romantic other than the small captains bed which doubled as a bookshelf, but being separate from the main house was nice. Our second room was odd, to say the least. The bathroom took up about 2/3 of the whole room and there was no door seperating the bed from the bathroom, not exactly romantic in my opinion. In both of the rooms the beds were uncomfortably small, further discouraging romance, and so uncomfortable neither of us got a good nights sleep and one woke up several times with back pain he is still feeling. While we understand that thin walls come with staying in most B&Bs,but this was a little extreme, you would think "the best place in Estes park" could invest in wall insulation.
Both breakfasts were wonderful, other than the "fruit compote" which was really just warmed up canned fruit salad, yuck. But other than that we had a potato quiche which was delicious and creative, and a huevos rancheros the whole table raved about. The woman cooking breakfast was also very sweet and hospitable.
All in all I would say this is a nice place to stay, but if you're looking for magical go elsewhere, and also if you're easily affected by the negative energy of others make sure Dianne isn't working (although she lives on the property to make sure no extra coffee is made).

Room Tip: Stay out of the mountain rose unless you don't need any privacy in the bathroom.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The service and food were superior. We treated ourselves to the private gourmet romantic dinner for two which was worth every penny. We also enjoyed hiking up the side of the mountain on the property which provided a spectacular view of the area.

We stayed in the "Cowboy's Delight" for three wonderful night. This room has a "Howdy-do" feeling with absolutely everything you need, could ask for, or dream of needing.

The property is divine not in the glitzy sense, but from a John Muir style. But it is the innkeepers and the staff that make Romantic Riversong truly exceptional. Mary, Dianne, Carol, Blanca, and Cynthia made our stay so memorable. This will not be our first and only trip to the inn because of their warm hospitality. This will be the first of many visits to this lovely lovely inn.

Take the time to book a dinner there. It's by far and away the best food in Estes Park and it will be made and served to you with exceptional care and service.

This inn is at the end of the road in its own private multi-acre setting--away from all the commotion of Estes Park, yet close enough to take advantage of restaurants/shopping, and the road in to Rocky Mt Nat'l Park is just around the corner. We saw elk on the drive in, and they wandered all around the inn's property as if tame and just posing for pictures--absolutely amazing! The folks that work at the inn are incredibly warm and welcoming. Our room (Pasque Flower)--though a two-suite cabin--felt very private and was very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts are delicious and wonderfully presented, and the cooks did an excellent job of accommodating my dietary restrictions. I would definitely return to this inn again!

The Romantic Riversong is a great place to stay if you are visiting Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a short drive from downtown Estes Park but secluded enough that you know you are secluded. We stayed there five nights so we had enough time to see and enjoy the Riversong. We stayed in the Shooting Star which was a little dated but very nice; it was over more a more expensive room on the first floor. There was another room opposite us which seemed to have been updated and was a bit larger. Since we were going to be there five nights we rented a room with a less expensive rate. The Shooting Star should have a makeover as the door between the basin and shower/toilet was an old pull door. But.....if you are in Estes to see RMNP.....then this room is perfect. The breakfasts are very enjoyable and the staff is quite capable. When we arrived, we were met by Cynthia........a very charming and outgoing person. She made us feel quite at home! Mary and Diane were also great hosts as well. I think we only met the Innkeeper on the last morning we were there......but it did not matter as the other hosts and staff personnel were quite capable.

Room Tip: If you want the least expensive rooms, pick either The Shooting Star (where we stayed) or The Mornin...

We had a great time at The Romantic Riversong B&B. A much needed trip away from the city to relax and this place didn't disappoint us. The hospitality was great and the breakfast was simply amazing!!! The rooms were nice and the hiking trail was very scenic. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a little escape to nature with the cool little town of Estes Park minutes away.
