RIVER BEND RETREAT - A Relaxing Home Away From Home On The River!!

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Sleeps 4 (2 Adults, 2 Children)

Spend a week or a few days in our spacious cabin on the Big Thompson River in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado. Imagine falling asleep to the sounds of the river or listening to the wind blow through the towering pines! Chances are you may be treated to seeing elk and deer right outside of the cabin. Enjoy a campfire in the fire pit as you sit and listen to the sounds of the river just steps away. Fish right behind the cabin and grill up your fresh catch on the barbeque grill!

Take a 10 to 15 minute walk into quaint Estes Park from the property where shopping and great restaurants abound or drive the short distance to Rocky Mountain National Park, where the scenery is spectacular, the wildlife abundant and the hiking trails extensive.

While the cabin lists as a '1 Bedroom/1 Bath' there is plenty of space with a separate kitchen, dining room, sitting room, living room, a luxury bathroom, and the separate bedroom, as well as a front and rear deck.

We offer the perfect get-away for everyone... from those seeking a solitude break to the family looking for the 'best vacation ever!' Come and enjoy the rustic atmosphere of a cabin on the river with the comforts of a well equipped home.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we opened the door we knew we were in the right place. Everything was perfect. Very clean. Very spacious for two people. The location was perfect too. We didn't have to negotiate the auto and pedestrian traffic every time we left the house. Only minutes away from RMNP entrance. Would definitely stay here again and will recommend to others.

Graduation Trip

  • 5 of 5

Took my son to Estes Park for 5 days and so glad we stayed at River Bend. We arrived to a large late May snowstorm of more than 2 feet. We weren't sure if we were going to make it to the cabin but the owners had it shoveled out well before we were to arrive. Calle was in constant contact, giving us weather updates and guidance.

The cabin itself was excellent. Perfect location near town but yet you felt nature around you being right on the river. You could walk to town if you wanted to, not far. The cabin was very clean and good instructions for while you were there.

Calle left some hiking guides out for us, as we did that every day. There was also some bottled water for us and some very good coffee. The hike to Emerald Lake in the RMNP was our favorite. BTW, RMNP is very close by, another plus.

We were greeted by deer/elk almost every morning right outside the cabin. One morning we even saw a small coyote scamper down the road.

I would definitely stay here again without hesitation. Hope to make it back to Estes Park some day. Top notch owners and property!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the River Bend Retreat. It was in perfect condition when we arrived. The sound and the view of the stream just off the back deck made for a relaxing time after our hikes. The owner was helpful in many ways. She gave us a list of nice hikes in the area. She had ice and cold water ready for us in the refrigerator. I thought to myself that it would be nice to have a small ice chest to bring with us on some hikes. I found one in the kitchen. This vacation home had anything we wanted or needed. It was very neat and clean. I will stay here again next time we are in Estes Park. I like the location of being on a back street too. We were able to get to and from the home without sitting in traffic. I highly recommend this vacation home.

Just perfect for our family of 4 summer vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was the perfect size and was stocked with everything we needed! We sat outside every morning with our coffee and every afternoon with our drinks after long days of hiking. The fresh flowers were a very nice touch!

Clean updated cabin, great location and great sleep!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! There is very limited parking in downtown Estes and the cabin was a perfect walk to shops and restaurants. On our last night we saw several elk around the cabin as we headed out for our walk to town. The cabin was clean and updated with both heat and AC, although we only used the heat two mornings to take the chill off. When the Windows are open the relaxing sound of the river radiates throughout the house. Also a possible fishing spot, but not ideal. Bring slippers, the beautiful updated tile floor gets cold with the cooler overnight Colorado temperatures. The kitchen had everything a person could possibly need. The bathroom have a jetted tub which we all enjoy! The queen bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable and the bedroom was dark. Expect great sleep at the Riverbend cabin! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Callie and Bryan for sharing your piece of heaven with us!
