Myself and my Fiancee decided that Rustic River Cabins would be a great place to take my parents when they travelled over from England.
They absolutely loved it. The view from the hot tub, the comfort of the bed (cabin 6), the tranquility and the cosiness of the accommodation.
It was so peaceful and quiet, and the stars were so beautiful to look at while relaxing in the hot tub.
We ourselves have camped in Allenspark, and stayed just down the road in other cabins, but seriously, you could not get any more rustic, yet inspirational than this. Amazing.
Cabin had mod cons such as TV, fridgefreezer etc - yet a real fireplace so you get the authenticity of the crackling firewood as you settle down on the comfortable couch - and the shower was super nice too. Plenty of towels provided - and extra comforters for the beds.
The kitchen was nicely stocked too - fig newtons - my fave - although we brought our own food too, so I didn't get the chance to tuck into them ;)
We will certainly be coming back again!!
Very pet friendly and the owners were super nice!!
5/5 for us!
Only one issue was a neighbor who pulled up at 1am and headlamps shone into the bedroom, but besides that - perfect.
Oh - almost forgot - saw the first snowfall of this season (fall 2012) and it was even more beautiful than the previous day!
- 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
