About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

The place 'Where Memories are Made!'

Historic and cozy getaway. Since the flood we have made some major renovations. We have a new large bathroom and have added an indoor eating area. This comfortable cottage is an ideal getaway for families, or for the couple who would like some privacy and space. You can't get any closer to the river as the back patio looks out over the river, and so does the screened porch. If you want to get a little closer, open the gate and take the few steps over the river. You can fish from the steps or just take in the sound and feeling that only running water can provide.

Enjoy the private master bedroom with oversized log Queen bed.

The 2nd main floor bedroom has a queen size bed with a window that opens to the river.

The loft is a fun place for the kids to be with two twin beds and open playing space.

Extra guests can sleep on the Queen sized sofa sleeper in the living room with a new memory foam matress.

Full kitchen comes complete with eating and cooking utinsels, microwave, oven, stove, and fridge.

We hope you enjoy our 'River Run Cottage' as much as we do and that this spot will leave you with memories that last a lifetime, and the desire to come back year after year!

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Drake, CO, USA:
We love the outdoors! As a family who loves nature and the outdoor adventure, we couldn't ask for a greater spot than this. The river is literally on our doorsteps. It is amazing to be surrounded by the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and the diversity and adventure of Estes Park Surrounded by amazing views of Wildlife, Beautiful scenery and lots of activities to drive to, or to hike through!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We can't say enough about the environment of this cottage and the feeling of history one feels while staying here. Lisa's favorite parts of this property are the feeling of History compete with the old wooden floors, and the single paned windows. Shane loves the outdoor features; the sound of the river, the feeling of nature all around, and the abundant opportunity to experience the outdoors by foot, and car.
