I've stayed in many B & B's but this by far was my favorite. Mark and Erin are lovely hosts and always helpful when seeking out restaurants and fun activities. I almost forgot to mention the breakfasts were fabulous every morning and the beautiful background of the river made the experience complete. Great home away from home.

Thanks soooo much for the feedback, MC! So glad we could help you have a great vacation. Glad you enjoyed the flowers & local fudge too! Also, here is a list of some of the easier herbs to grow (that we used in our breakfasts) that are in our herb garden:

Greek Oregano, Cilantro, Thyme, Rosemary, Stevia, Basal (crabby herb), and Dill. Let some flower out (go-to-seed) and they will pop up again next year :o)

We had an amazing time for our 15th Wedding Anniversary at this B&B. We thought Mark and Erin were delightful. They shared great stories with us and loved our stories too. Breakfast was delicious and we didn't need to eat again until dinner!! So comfortable and relaxing listening to the river!

Room Tip: 3 rooms, so very cozy and quiet. Any room is a winner. Each room has semi private area on deck. All...

My husband and I recently took a week vacation in Colorado and he booked two nights at Mountain River Inn B&B and boy we wish we had more time! The Native Willow suite was just perfect! The room is not only decorated beautifully, the bed was so comfy and the bathroom was spectacular! But above all, Mark and Erin are amazing hosts! They were very accommodating with our schedule and the breakfasts both mornings were delicious! The view of the Arkansas River right outside the room was breathtaking. The most relaxing and comfortable place! We will definitely be back and keep bragging about it to all our friends!!!

Room Tip: Native Willow room was very spacious, comfortable and great balcony and view of the river!

I traveled to Buena Vista to deliver my daughter to a local rafting company to work for the summer. I booked three nights with Erin and Mark at their Mountain River Inn B&B based off of other Tripadvisor reviews and was delighted with my stay. The location is beautifully situated right on the river, with a wonderful deck and terraced walkways equipped with adirondack chairs. There is even a swing right at the edge of the water to dip your toes in. The rooms are really nice, with fun western decor and very comfortable beds. There is a microwave, small refrigerator and coffee pot in the room, along with two fluffy robes to use to head out to the hot tub under the stars. The breakfasts were delicious and Erin and Mark were able to accommodate our gluten free requests with ease. The atmosphere was so laid back and comfortable and I enjoyed the ability to both sit and chat with our hosts like old friends as well as retreat to the solace of the river. My last night did not allow for me to enjoy their wonderful sit down breakfast, but I was blessed with a cooked "togo" breakfast. I'm really looking forward to returning in July and August!

Hey robnkathy - so glad you could send your daughter off to one of our great rafting companies, from our B&B! She is going to have a wonderful summer, and if she ever needs a nice, hot breakfast, send her our way - it's "easy peasy" to set another place. Hope you liked your chocolate treat in your "Breakfast Picnic To Go" bag :o)

We spent a week traveling through Colorado, and choose to stay 2 nights at this B&B. On line, it looked like a perfect place to really relax! This B&B was like coming home! Erin and Mark love hosting folks from everywhere and it shows. They are welcoming, warm and just great people you want to sit and chat with. They are not overbearing, and leave you to enjoy their wonderful piece of paradise. The rooms are more than comfortable, with private bath, comfortable bed, & walk out deck to sit and enjoy the sound of the Arkansas River. When it got cool at night - the hot tub was the perfect place to watch the shooting stars. They serve an amazing breakfast together, as I said, they love what they do. We will be heading back to Colorado, and know without question that we will be booking our stay with them again!

Room Tip: I will try to stay at all of them.

This is a wonderfully situated and maintained B&B, right next to the Arkansas River. It is secluded, but near to town and to the Mt Princeton hot springs. The hosts are warm, welcoming, attentive, and great cooks! Everything about the place is perfect, right down to the variety of birds at the bird feeder. Have already booked our next reservation with them. I feel like I've found "My Place" and I look forward to returning many times!
