We only stayed two nights, but we couldn't of been more pleased. The cabins were nice with full kitchens and totally stocked with dishes, utensils, and a full size refrigerator. The facility is right on the Big Thompson River and just a few minutes from Estes Park. Hot tubs and decks over looking the river are awesome. If you want... More

This past Memorial Day weekend was our first stay at Rustic River. We chose to stay at Rustic River mostly due to the reviews on TripAdvisor and additional research (we had not been to the Estes Park area previously). We were extremely happy with our visit! We stayed in Cabin #6 - rustic, clean, well kept, quiet and wonderful! Our... More

Enjoyed the stay. Free WiFi and Sat. TV (Dish). Small kitchen, but it was a full size gas stove, frig and microwave. Plates, cups, bowls and pots & pans provided. Cabin did not smell of "old" like some others places do this old. Nice view of the rushing Thompson River. The owners work really hard to provided a great place... More

These cabins were built in the 1940s and they're charming as can be. Nestled up against a mountan along a river, the're quaint, clean, and comfortable. It's super cozy and only a few minutes from Estes Park. Ours had a private hot tub that made for some romantic stargazing 💙 We loved this place and hope to stay again!

The rates increased drastically from our last stay. Upon our return home we received an email accusing us of smoking in the cabin especially in the bedroom. We smoked on the deck with very strong winds around us. They charged us an additional $150.00 to get rid of the smoke smell. Poor way to make additional money especially from frequent... More

Thank you for your review, but you did miss read your email. First of all I would never charge anyone a fee without speaking to them over the phone. You are a repeat guest so I like to give people the benefit of the bought, which is why I paid the cleaning bill. I did not mean to offend you.... More

My boyfriend and I drove from Minnesota to Rustic River Cabins. This was my favorite vacation yet. The location of the Cabins is perfect.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary trip during the winter and immediately knew we would be coming back to Rustic River Cabins for the summer.

Thank you for your review. We were also very upset that once the Domino's moved to the new location, they would deliver to us. However, we do still have Cheesy Lees that will deliver to us. We think they have good pizza and they have a coupon in the Restaurant Guide. Hope to see you back in the future. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rustic River Cabins are tucked away in the Big Thompson Canyon just four miles from the center of the city of Estes Park on the Big Thompson River. We are far enough from town so you don't have to deal with the heavy traffic of Estes Park, but close enough to enjoy all that the city and the Rocky Mountain National Park have to offer. ... more   less
