My fiance and I enjoyed our stay here -particularly because our hosts were fabulously warm, helpful, and considerate. The breakfasts were wonderful, the hot tub was heavenly, and the riverside setting was soothing. We went hiking each day and returned to a great place to relax and snuggle.

We stayed in the Alamo cabin. We had a great time relaxing by the river (which was right outside the cabin) and in the private hot tub. We couldn't have asked for a better, more relaxing, quiet, peaceful weekend than what we got. We will definitely go back again for another weekend. Oh, the dog loved it too, he really liked swimming around in the river.

We really enjoyed our stay at Dripping Springs Resort! Janie and Oliver made us feel at home and very welcome! Our cabin was so romantic and surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. It made for an amazing getaway! We definately would stay with Janie and Oliver again! It was very nice to get out of the city and into the rustic country feel of this wonderful place!

My husband and I stayed at the Dripping Springs resort in "The Alamo" during his 2 weeks leave from an Iraq deployment. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend the resort to anyone looking for a quaint location in a beautiful setting. We were extremely busy during our stay, so did not take advantage of the many amenities, but this is the perfect place for someone looking for a relaxing, pampering weekend or on the go as we were. We had an emergency at the end of our trip and everyone was more than helpful-above and beyond. Close to the park and Loveland. The price is only marginally higher than a boring, plain hotel...well worth the price! The hot tub alone makes up for any price difference! Thank you so much for a memorable vacation!

We visited in mid-summer, had never been to the area before. We thought the grounds of the resort were outstanding, it is right next to a mountain stream and nicely wooded. We stayed in the Encantado cabin for 2 nights and the Grandma Lillian's room for another 2. I decided that the word 'rustic' means old and worn out.

The cabin had a great view, a large deck, a super hot tub, the back yard led straight to the river, and there was plenty of interior space. We had a firepit with wood to burn in the evening and saw wildlife out the window several times. On the down side the kitchen crockery and utensils were ancient and chipped, the dishwasher was nonfunctional. All the lights were dim including in the bathroom, had trouble even shaving. It was getting down into the 40's at night and the heater pilots weren't lit. Wireless internet had been promised but it didn't reach our cabin.

Grandma Lillian's is even smaller than a typical hotel room but there is a little private deck with a hot tub and a front porch to sit on. It is one of a row of little rooms lined up next to each other adjacent to the parking lot, I have to think this was all built back in the 50's. The breakfast was adequate and well-prepared if not gourmet in any way; eggs, meats, breads, coffee and tea. Most of the guests gathered at a big campfire by the river every night and swapped stories, very pleasant.

We appreciate all the input we get, and take each one into consideration. We just finished a huge makeover on the Encantado cabin, now the bathroom is sleek and modern with a walkin shower and beautiful tile, and lots of light and heat.
We had a very cold July, down in the 30's which was not typical. One day was warm the next cold, and we continually turned heaters on and off for customers! One review mentioned we had only 1 room with ac, actually we have 3, they were never used this year!
FYI, the Encantado was built in the 40's and the Pinewood was way before that, we think 1911. The B&B rooms were built in the late 30's.
It is true we are not a luxury resort, there are some of those around here, but it is what it is.
I try to express this in our website ,We continually make improvements, large and small and this summer we made many great improvements.
Again, we thank each person who writes a review, and we learn from them all!
