Idlewilde by the River is our favorite vacation place. The location is perfect.....along the
Big Thompson River with lots of animal life - rabbits, chipmunks, beautiful hummingbirds and an occasional elk in August. A river runs through with fish to catch and our grandkids love the tether ball, horseshoes and areas for other games. The cabins are so appealing as they are set amid tall pine trees. Every year when we arrive there are profuse pots of flowers on the office porch and in the surrounding beds. Lloyd and Donna Claypool, the Managers, are are very helpful and cheerful. They help with various requests such as recommendations for dinner, need for extra towels, fix what needs fixing, etc. This is the annual vacation spot for us and our two adult children's families. We all love being here together. There is something for all ages to do. The cabins are so clean, comfy and charming. We look forward to our next visit in 2014.
