The Mountain River Inn is a Bed & Breakfast that rests on the banks of the famous Arkansas River, at the foot of the Collegiate Mountain Range in central Colorado, U.S.A. This quiet country setting with mountain & river views in all directions, is located 1.5 miles north of the historic downtown district of Buena Vista, Colorado. Your choice of accommodations includes three large lodging rooms, all with private baths, private riverbank deck entrance, and furnished in either willow, pine, or aspen wood furniture. See individual Room Descriptions for more details. Outside your private entrance is a deck with a patio table and chairs, wild flowers in season, and a path to the outdoor hot tub and down to the river's edge. A full and hearty breakfast is served in our dining room when the weather is cooler, or on the deck when things warm up. On the river's edge is an outdoor kiva fire-pit for evening bonfires and storytelling about the day's adventures of hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, fly fishin', horseback riding, jeepin', 4-wheeling the Four Mile Creek Area, and sightseeing in the Rocky Mountain high country.

From start to finish, Erin and Mark put their whole heart into this B&B. The decor, the grounds, the special touches and the off-the-charts breakfast were amazing. Throughout the home the workmanship is meticulous and the appointments are perfect. We loved the Buffalo suite. It

First of all the property is beautiful. The hosts Erin and Mark are overly knowledgeable about the area and things to do as well as their hospitality is second to none. They helped my wife (Margaret) and I plan our daily activities. The breakfasts that were made for us were

We had such a wonderful time. Erin and Mark were so welcoming. It was so peaceful and close to town. It was fun to watch the hummingbirds in the morning overlooking the river. Looking forward to going back.

Hey Debbie! It was so nice meeting you and Mr. G! The humming birds are still wayyyyy nutty. We so enjoy having breakfast with them. Now, that Abert's Squirrel is about to get run off though. Make sure to come back in June/July and go rafting on our great Arkansas River - one of the BEST ways to see our beautiful mountains!

Thank You, Carson for your wonderful words and so glad you had such a great time.. You both made the best of just about every minute! While every spot in our yard is wonderful, forgot to ask if you got to spend time down at the napping beach (my favorite spot). Hope you did! So sorry you didn't get to meet Mark - he'll be back in a couple weeks!

We spent a couple of nights there during our anniversary week in July 2018. We were made to feel more like old friends than simply guests. The food was beyond amazing! We had our anniversary dinner at a high-end restaurant up the road, and I commented to Mark and Erin that the

Hi Mark G - So happy you could spend your anniversary with us! Hope your hiking was good too before you headed to our cabin! We are still sleeping with the doors open and the breezes are wonderful! The flower gardens are really happy with the afternoon rain we are getting. If you come back in the future, try the fall - the Aspen, Pine Trees, and Beautiful Blue Skies are absolutely beautiful!!
