Management Response

We sincerely apologize for any misfortune you may have encountered at the cabin, for this we are truly sorry. It’s unfortunate you did not express any of your concerns when you were staying with us because we always strive to make it right. Even now you are still welcome to give us a call so we can offer you something special.


A Brief Overview for New Guests:
Over the past 10 years we’ve enjoyed sharing our home with guests from around the world. The cabin has two bedrooms along with an added virtual bedroom in the living room. A separate bunkhouse on the property contains a private fourth bedroom.

The cabin is ideally situated on the bend of the Saint Vrain River on the edge of the Roosevelt National Forest. The cabin’s kitchen hosts an antique gas stove from the 50s, which necessitates lighting this old world charm with a match. The stove is especially sought out by the many chefs and foodies who have stayed with us. The cabin also has a modern microwave, gas grill, and charcoal grill to suit various cooking needs and styles indoor and out. 

Yes, some smarter dogs have found ways of escaping the confines of the fenced in property which is constantly under active evaluation to adapt and hopefully outsmart the smartest of dogs upon their return visit.

If a guest calls us with a concern of any kind we are on 24 hour mobile standby except when we travel and then a handyman is on call. Fortunately in a decade shared by many hundreds of guests we’ve only had three occurrences where we needed to carry out repairs while guests occupied the cabin. We otherwise never 'infringe' on the privacy of our guests with the exception of those three times. One time of which included a sudden leaking pipe.

The cabin is continuously being updated. Most recently (right after the carpets got wet from the pipe leak), new natural wool carpeting was promptly installed. Also, newer insulated French double doors, an ergonomic Swedish foam sleeper sofa in the living room, new grills, and fire pit were recently added. If you’re curious call us and ask about our latest improvements. We pride ourselves in the cabin’s upkeep.

Through all the satisfied guests we’ve hosted over the years (evidenced by guest remarks in our visitor book), we know the vast majority of our guests discover our home as a natural unique sanctuary. A special place where they can relax, escape, let their worries go, and enjoy time alone or with their family and friends. Many affectionately express, it's their home away from home, while other guests have offered to buy A River Bend Retreat so they can have it all to themselves. We however prefer our home to be a sharing place to be enjoyed and savored when the spirit calls for adventure, new discoveries and closeness to nature.

A River Bend Retreat, being ideally situated here in Colorado, under the pine tress, directly on the bend of the river with private pajama access to gold panning and fly fishing along with high speed Internet, all within the ‘backyard’ of Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, is fairly priced in the low medium price range.

With warmth from your hosts,

Russell & Rita
