It was wonderful. Owners are very accommodating. We will definitely be back to stay. Hot tub right outside our cabin. Clean as a whistle. Not far from Estes Park. The view was great. Fun wading in th Big Thompson River. Try this place you will like it.

We loved staying in the mountains, near the river, for our anniversary. The hosts were so hospitable and helpful! They even left us a card and some chocolates for our anniversary. Very comfortable bed and great amenities in the kitchen. And we loved the hot tub in the snow! Thank you for a great stay!

Cabin 6 was the PERFECT place for us to stay in CO. We were very happy with the "home" feel. We felt right at home and the cabin had everything we needed. We went in the winter time and the owners worked very hard to make sure we were comfortable and warm. The fireplace in the cabin was awesome. Would...

We had a wonderful visit to Estes Park. Rustic River Cabins were a perfect choice! I was a bit worried about the "rustic" but the cabins were immaculately clean & cozy. I couldn't even find any dust bunnies :) The jacuzzi was a nice addition & at just a few miles outside of Estes, you have plenty of quiet &...

Thank you for your review. You just said my favorite thing, "No dust bunnies". We love our cute little homes and we are very blessed to have people like you take such great care of them while you are here. We work hard on making sure they are clean because they are so rustic.

My husband and I just spend our 1 year anniversary in Cabin 1 and it was perfect. We arrived late on a Friday night and the owners had left a light on and the heater on (which was amazing since it was freezing). The cabin is adorable and just what we were looking for. Nothing extremely fancy but super quaint....

What a perfect place. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. I feel like this is my home away from home. We stayed in cabin 8 Endless Stars. Loved everything about it. To have that deck is like an extra room! I always stayed in the Big Thompson as a kid so have been looking for another cabin....

We only stayed two nights, but we couldn't of been more pleased. The cabins were nice with full kitchens and totally stocked with dishes, utensils, and a full size refrigerator. The facility is right on the Big Thompson River and just a few minutes from Estes Park. Hot tubs and decks over looking the river are awesome. If you want...

This past Memorial Day weekend was our first stay at Rustic River.

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
