About the Property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath With River And Forest Views

Make a break for the mountains and relax on the river, just a few short hours from Denver!

This riverside mountain cottage was built in 1949 and is located on an acre of land in Riverside/Raymond Colorado not far from Estes Park, elevation 7000 ft.   Your front yard is the Middle St Vrain River...and your back yard is Roosevelt National Forest! Surrounded by pine and aspen, you cannot see the neighbors to the south and you can view the northern log cabin neighbor.

Kids (and adults) will enjoy the upstairs loft complete  with TV movie zone and indoor camping. The rest of the gang can visit and catch up with life on the riverside screened in front porch...while the smell of dinner is not far away when you enjoy cooking and dining together in our cozy kitchen nook.

Arrive to the cottage on a residential road into a rock driveway where you will park (1-2 cars maximum), and then walk across a footbridge over the river, to your vacation cabin.  Recently remodeled, this sweet cottage is appointed with new floors and carpeting.

Make a break for the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and try something new this vacation! Enjoy authentic riverside cottage living as you explore there is to do!

Integrate yourself into the small Colorado mountain community of

Riverside / Raymond elevation 7000ft on this vacation adventure. Our neighborhood rolls along the Middle St Vrain River and is full of other unique cabins and cottages, pine and aspen trees. We are mindful and respect the wildlife that abounds here and shares our neck of the woods.

There is a small "store in town"....hours and offerings vary....perhaps a good spot to grab a cold pop as you head out for the day. Probably a must stop just to soak in the flavor of where you are staying!

Your cottage retreat is about 2 hours north of Denver, 15 miles from Lyons, 20 miles Estes Park and 10 miles from Wild Basin / Rocky Mountain National Park.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: The original portion of this sweet little rock foundation cabin was built in 1940’s by a father for his family. We believe it as added on over the next few years, creating a square shaped cabin. In the 1960’s the family added on the back portion to modernize the cabin and included a bathroom, back bedroom and loft area. In 2012, the daughter of that father sold the cabin to a group of friends making it into what you see today...River Rest. These friends have taken almost a year to completely refurbish everything up to current day standards. This includes new windows, all new flooring, new electrical wiring and a total gut and redo of the bathroom. The remodel allowed us to provide an electric stove as previously there was only an early 20th century wood burning cook stove. It was a beautiful piece but huge and unusable due to the fire hazard and insurance coverage. It was sad to see it go! The floods of September 2013 have proved a huge impact on this little mountain community. Everyone is still restoring and rebuilding and looking forward to the future. We are so grateful and blessed to be able to continue to share this mountain property with guests and friends. We are looking forward to creating more history with our families and yours….. Enjoy River Rest.....

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will never forget waking up to the sights and sounds of the river....what an adventure you will have!
