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.

Great place to stay for a Rocky Mountain National Park getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this wonderful home during a seven day visit to Rocky Mountain National Park. Besides a generally great property, additional nice touches included fresh flowers upon our arrival, epsom salts for a daily hot soak in a great whirlpool bathtub, a very well stocked kitchen, a library of DVD's, games,. a riverside patio for end of day relaxation and a very reliable and strong wifi signal. This was a place that truly felt like home at the end of our hiking days.

The location is great - close to RMNP and Estes Park, but removed enough from Estes Park to escape traffic, crowds, and tourism.

Perfect Location in Estes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five days and wish we could've stayed longer! We enjoyed fishing and sitting by the river each day. Getting to town or into the park was very easy from this cabin but it also felt private and secluded. The best part is hearing the river at night! We would love to return someday. The host left flowers and has the house stocked with coffee and teas, an added bonus. Thanks so much!

Wonderful Rocky Mountain visit in a terrific cabin in Estes Park

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this well equipped and spacious cabin. Everything we needed was there and it's location on the river was so peaceful after a day spent visiting the National Park. Wildlife is right there-came back to see an elk walking right up the driveway one afternoon! The location right in Estes Park makes it very convenient to catch the shuttle and to be in Rocky Mountain National Park within minutes. Many thanks to Calle and Brian for a beautiful "vacation home"!!

This is a great vacation home in excellent condition and very well equipped. My family and I loved the home and it added to the overall fun of our vacation. The location is great and we loved being right on the river, with the patio furniture and fire pit. We will stay here again!

We loved Riverbend Retreat! It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was very clean. The deck overlooking the river was wonderful and we ate dinner out there a few nights. Very happy that we chose to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th Anniversary. When we arrived there were fresh flowers, champagne in the fridge, and a thoughtful note of congratulations. Our time at River Bend Retreat was a gift we won't soon forget! I will recommend to anyone looking for a quiet and spacious home in a superb location!
