We loved river spruce. So friendly, helpful, you felt like family. Fresh baked cake for breakfast,,,mmmm. We are already planning a return next fall. Cabin, dream catcher, clean, cozy, WiFi worked fine. The water pressure was awesome! We didn't utilize the hot tub. Just because it was so cold out. Next time we will! I'd recommend this place to everyone,... More

Not one negative or even luke warm thing can be said about River Spruce in Estes Park, CO. From the instant we arrived, we felt as if we were at our home away from home. The owners, the cabin, the river, the warm pastries baked fresh and delivered every morning (except Sundays if I remember correctly), and so much more!... More

There's nothing more relaxing then a cozy cabin by the river. Wonderful cabin, squeaky clean, and all the amenities you could wish for. Our hosts truly made us feel welcome and it was obvious they care about their property. Kitchen had everything we needed, fridge was a nice size and we even had our own fire pit where we enjoyed...

Our stay at River Spruce was excellent. I have been to Estes Park and stayed at a variety of cabins and condos and River Spruce is by far the best. It has the perfect setting and the staff are the most welcoming and sweet people I've encountered. They delivered fresh muffins every morning with a smile and always made sure... More

Excellent stay at the end of our fall leaf trip through Colorado. Stayed here our last night after getting to see the Elk Rut in RMNP. Was fortunate to get such a nice cabin for only one night in Estes on a Friday night. Cozy cabin right on the river, not luxury, but what a cabin should be. The morning... More

The absolutely most relaxing place I have been to. You can be as active as you like, however, the invitation to relax is hard to deny. The inn keepers are available when needed and the service top notch! Fresh baked bread serve to your cabin every morning! YUM!
