The rates increased drastically from our last stay. Upon our return home we received an email accusing us of smoking in the cabin especially in the bedroom. We smoked on the deck with very strong winds around us. They charged us an additional $150.00 to get rid of the smoke smell. Poor way to make additional money especially from frequent... More

Thank you for your review, but you did miss read your email. First of all I would never charge anyone a fee without speaking to them over the phone. You are a repeat guest so I like to give people the benefit of the bought, which is why I paid the cleaning bill. I did not mean to offend you.... More

My boyfriend and I drove from Minnesota to Rustic River Cabins. This was my favorite vacation yet. The location of the Cabins is perfect. The drive up the mountain to Rustic River was gorgeous and unforgetable. We arrived two hours late for our check in time, so all we had to do when we got to our cabin was relax... More

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary trip during the winter and immediately knew we would be coming back to Rustic River Cabins for the summer. Cute little place to stay with our dog, great hiking and the perfect place to stay right outside of Estes Park. My only complaint is we didn't really get phone service (free... More

Thank you for your review. We were also very upset that once the Domino's moved to the new location, they would deliver to us. However, we do still have Cheesy Lees that will deliver to us. We think they have good pizza and they have a coupon in the Restaurant Guide. Hope to see you back in the future. More

So it's been over a month since our return from Rustic River Cabins, and I have to say that I'm still just as eager to return! I still cannot get over how perfect everything was. We wanted relaxation and found that in cabin 4. The private hot tub, with the Ridge in the background was perfect. Quiet and quaint, I... More

My husband came across this local treat. We were looking for a weekend getaway with a private hot tub. He found the jackpot. We had one of the smaller cabins at the front of the property.

As someone who has burned wood to heat my house over 20 years, I know how to build and maintain an fire and the difference between the quirkiness of an old fireplace and a dangerous situation.

We stayed in Cabin #1 which had a fenced in area for our dog to run around. The cabin was so cozy and the Owners are so friendly and amazing! We had such a beautiful Christmas here and will definitely come back. The only downside was lack of closets so don't bring too many clothes!!!

The cabin was cozy and comfortable and so well stocked and maintained. The owners were friendly and personable and eager to please. The river next to our cabin was right outside our front door with rediculous amounts of fish begging to be caught. We could not have asked for a better vacation or first experience of Colorado.

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
