    Vista Del Rio provides basic lodging in a small town that's pretty close to the middle of nowhere. It appears to have been built on a rather slender budget, but is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The owners are friendly and helpful. They live on...More

    Clean and friendly. Night person was AWESOME. It is right next to the river and the highway but you couldn't hear the highway noise. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was a wee bit small. All in all, I will definately stay again.

    We don't have cabins, Betty. Sounds like it was the Little Creel Lodge, Spruce Lodge or Elk Horn Lodge. I hope this helps.
