We were there this past Friday to Sunday. Friendly staff but hot tub dirty and broken. Fireplace also broken. Cabin old and run down. Not worth the price we payed. Would not recommend, specially with so many options around.

My family and I stayed in the Pow Wow cabin and enjoyed our stay and loved walking the property taking in all the great views of The Big Thompson River. It was great to have a grill, table and fire pit within steps of walking out of the cabin. This was my first experience in an experience with the feel of an Air BNB, but the two people we seen onsite during the day were friendly and helpful. It was 15 minutes feom everything which made navigating easy.

We booked a cabin weekend months in advance, and just 8 days before the start of our trip we received an email advising us that our reservation had been cancelled due to "cabin being out of service". Of course, this left us without a place to stay for the weekend - everything is booked just 8 days out - and the place did not elaborate or offer to help us rebook another weekend or another place the same weekend. Just, "sorry for the inconvenience". I would avoid this place if you want to ensure that your trip will not be cancelled on you at the last minute.

We stayed in the Thunderbird cabin, and , although it was outdated, it worked for us. I will say the bathroom and shower stall is pretty small. Bed was comfortable and it was very clean. The resident caretaker, Winnie, was totally amazing! She was so kind and super sweet, made our stay delightful! The Big Thompson River which is right behind the cabin was a hit for my husband who likes to fly fish! It is close to Estes Park and the entrance to RMNP, but out of all the high busy areas. Small local grocery store and restaurants right up the road. Will definitely be returning!

This small quaint resort was just perfect for our family vacation. We had three individual cabins (Dream Catcher, North Star and Sunshine). The cabins were great, but the outside space was amazing! Each cabin had a private hot tub, fire pit and picnic table right next to The Big Thompson River. We had a wonderful time relaxing and reconnecting. We have already made reservations to return next June!

I have mixed feelings about leaving a review considering all of the stellar reviews I have read here. But I think I owe it to future travelers to tell my experience. We stayed in the Rainbow Cabin. The place is beautiful and well kept… that is for sure. If you stay in some of the end cabins, you have a fairly long walk yo get your gear to your cabin. As it turns out, there are wagons for your use. But… they were no where to be found when we arrived.( kids were riding in them as it turns out. I made 4 trips to get our stuff to our room, including a 70 pound cooler… without a cart or wagon. We never saw anyone who worked there other than a carpenter doing some remodeling. The first night , tried to watch a movie, TV would not turn on. Turns out that the plug is so old that the plug connection was hit or miss. The tv plug would literally just fall out of the receptacle. The heater would sound an alarm ever 20 minutes or so, to check the filter ( where ever the filter was). So we either had to turn the heat off..(38f at night) or, be woke up every few minutes with an alarm. Again, there was no one there to ask about this.The first night when we returned from dinner, there were 2 kids “sword fighting “ with my $1k fly rods that they had taken off of our front porch. (9’ fly rods are difficult to bring inside so I leaned them on our cabin. If you are coming here to fly fish, It’s not the place. This is a great place for family get togethers and such…. NOT if you are looking for a nice quiet mountain get away. The lasts guests partially eaten food was left in the freezer… again, beautiful setting, for sure. We left 2 days before the end of our stay …. We’ve stayed at dozens of places over the last 20 years of visiting Estes 3-4 times per year. This was our “ one and done” here. I hope this helps some travelers with their lodging plans or to at least ask the right questions.

We've been visiting Estes for over 20yrs. it took us that long to find this place. Sure, you might find a fancy VRBO or a famous location like the YMCA, but I dare you to compare. For starters, who else is bringing you fresh baked breakfast breads every morning? Or, how about retiring to your own hot tub 10ft from the Big Thompson? We loved it, and it sits on the edge of Estes closest to RMNP, so getting to all the adventures is easy.

We loved everything about this place. The staff was, helpful and delivered warm coffee cake each morning. The cabin was nice, with an awesome view of the river. We had a private hot tub, river front chairs and fire pit. There was also a grill on site for guest use.

We have stayed her several times over the last 15 years. It is our perfect get away to the mountains. It is remote enough for that true mountain feeling yet quite close to about anything you would want to do in Estes Park or Rocky Mountain National Park. It is quiet, wooded and right next to the Big Thompson River. Fire pits near the river always finish off our days of hiking and exploring. We have seen wild turkeys, deer and this time elk right in our cabin site. The cabins are always clean and comfortable and have everything you need for cooking. Aaron is a wonderful host and is always accommodating. We are returning again next year for a family celebration in July. Great, Great Place!

I had the best time staying at River Spruce and highly recommend this gem to anyone looking for a heaping helping of Mother Nature at her finest. Rocky Mountain National Park is literally a stone’s throw away, and if you’ve never been to Estes Park, CO before then put it on your bucket list immediately. Book your reservation with Aaron now and be sure to ask for the Lil Twig.
