We just returned from the most beautiful, relaxing weekend at Idlewilde. It could not have been more perfect for what we were looking for - peace, relaxation, rustic, mountain-feel. The original cabins were impeccably clean and cute! We loved sleeping with our bedroom door to our screened porch open and listening to the roar of the Big Thompson River just steps away and smelling the pine of the trees that surrounded our little home away from home. We enjoyed visiting on our porch swing, reading by the river and fishing right outside of our cabin. Lloyd and Donna couldn't have been more hospitable - so kind, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The resort has the BEST location as well - just minutes away from town and from the entrance to the national park. We look forward to our next visit with Idlewilde!
