“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We loved our week long stay at River Spruce. The location right on the Big Thompson River is like heaven on earth, the sound of the river and the atmosphere are so relaxing. The ladies who own the retreat are very wholesome and down to earth, always there if you need anything or just for a nice chat, they make you feel like family and the home made muffins and breads delivered every morning are a very special touch. We will definitely return every time we visit Estes Park and will recommend this vacation getaway to everyone we know traveling to the area.

We stayed a few days in the Tom tom cabin. It was clean an comfortable! Awesome customer service! And the baked goods made the mornings feel even more special. Felt like visiting Family!! We will for sure come back and are telling friends and family to stay here!

I loved my stay at River Spruce. I would highly recommend this location for a relaxing weekend getaway. The sound of the river running and the comfort of the hot tub was awesome. The owners were very nice. The fresh baked breakfast treat really gave it the extra special touch of genuinely great customer service. Love it and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Everything was amazing... just not the most comfy beds so that made it hard to get a good nights sle...

This place has it all! Most cabins have a private hot tub outside the front door as well as a firepit. They even thought of gas grills to make cooking easy. All the details are thought of inside and out. This was our second stay and it just keeps getting better. We stayed in a one bedroom (rainbow) in 2013 and this year we stayed in a two bedroom (windwalker) and both were excellent. Very close to the Rocky Mountain National Park and the town. The river is right outside your door and is very relaxing to listen to all day and night. No matter what reason for your stay, you will enjoy it here!

Room Tip: Paying a little more for the 2 bedroom gets you more wiggle room inside the kitchen and den.

Estes Park is one of our favorite places to visit. We live an hour away so we've stayed many places in Estes. This was the Best by far. Definitely will return!!
We went during a snowy weekend and the property was very well cared for. They delivered hot muffins every morning that were yummy. We never left the cabin all weekend. It felt like home. I'm in love with this place. Take groceries with you and you'll never want to leave. Highly recommend!!!

Experience what is really like to be welcomed and pampered...you'll never want to leave!
Jim and Becky are the ultimate hosts. A friendly welcome, warm and delicious baked goods delivered in the morning and when your hosts say, "If you need anything....", they really mean it.

Don't miss out on the lodging specials at River Spruce! Good until April 2014.
Cabins are clean and cozy, with large bedroom, basic kitchen needs, full size refrigerator, flat screen TV, free WiFi, gas furnace fireplace and some with private hot tubs.

It snowed heavily during our 2 night stay at River Spruce. Jim plowed the parking area, shoveled a path to our door, brushed the snow off the private hot tub (right outside our door) as well as our steps, not once, but several times; he even quietly cleared all the snow, early on the morning of our departure, so we could enjoy one last soak!

Since the roads were snow packed and icy, our wonderful hosts even offered us a later check out. Jim let us know to listen for the owls who could be heard in the late afternoon. We were lucky enough to hear them twice...like staying with your favorite aunt and uncle.

So relaxing and quiet, a wonderful location. Large spruce trees, gently flowing river, lots of places to sit and enjoy the scenery. Well away from the downtown area, yet only a 5-10 minute drive to Estes Park, RMNP and trailheads.

A cozy cabin nestled along the Big Thompson River, birds singing, wildlife watching and spectacular star gazing straight from the hot tub! Quiet and relaxing a great place to explore Rocky Mountain National Park and the quaint town of Estes Park. Jim and Becky are incredibly friendly, helpful and kind. A fantastic place to relax, unwind and be.
