    The River Retreat is a historic cabin built in 1925 and completely restored with added conveniences you have come to expect but retains a timeless charm.

    This classic Colorado Cabin always books very quickly for the summer months. The location is stunning and this part of the river is very beautiful. We expect that you will enjoy the sounds of the river, the beautiful mountain air, blue skies and our historic cabin which is nestled between beautiful rock outcroppings, beautiful Ponderosa pine trees and the Big Thompson River. The River Retreat Cabin is about 5 minutes from Estes Park, Colorado and only about 10 minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park.

    River Retreat has all the comforts of home yet is in the Roosevelt National Forest with hiking trails just out the door and over...

A nice cottage, well represented by the pictures. Very clean and neat. Two enjoyable outside sitting areas, one right by the river. Easy access and parking - 10 min to Estes Park, 15 to Rocky Mountain National Park. A quiet neighborhood.
One possible negative for some - the stairs to the 2nd level are steep and narrow...unsuitable for the elderly or very young children. But otherwise, a great get away location!

Stayed at the house for 3 nights......wish we could stay longer! Very peaceful, next to the Big Thompson River.....reminded me of Kashmir! Only 5-10 minutes drive to Estes Park was a bonus. The house had all necessary amenities.....linen, towels, pots and pans, kitchen appliances, furniture, TV (which we didn't use!!), wi-fi internet access and heating! Front covered porch was great to sit at night or early in the morning! We took our morning cup of tea and enjoyed walking next to the river.....how could you beat that! A very clean place and surrounded by other well kept properties. Would have loved to see a bear or two visit the house.....or may be not!! more
