Reviewed 16 June 2013

We checked in on June 13th and stayed until June 16th. This was an Anniversary celebration for us, but we were supposed to be at the resort the weekend of the 21st. but because of an upcoming surgery for my husband, Janie was able to fit us in the weekend before.. Thanks so much for this.
We stayed in Pine Canopy room and it was wonderful with a private deck with a hot tub. We had ordered flowers and candles as a nice start to our celebration and could not have been more pleased as they were in our room when we arrived and the roses gave our room a wonderful scent the whole time we were there..
Breakfast each morning is also a pure pleasure, the food is to die for and the conversation is even better.
Friday night John made us a nice campfire down by the river and sat around and told stories and even one couple went for a walk and came back engaged. That is what this place does to u.. it makes u fall in love or in love all over again.
Thank u Janie, Oliver and John for a very wonderful relaxing getaway!.. We will be back for sure and I will tell everyone that wants to go to Estes Park that this resort is a must stay.

My husband and I took our chances and drove up Big Thompson Canyon to find a place for the night. We had been here about 15 years ago and when we found it we were delighted to see that they had a vacancy!
This B&B is just delightful!! Nestled in the woods along the river, there are several rooms - like in the days of the old motels - on ground level. They also have a 2 story buidling with rooms. We stayed in the Pine Canopy room - it was Heaven!! The queen size canopy bed, draped in sheers, is a "Select Comfort Sleep Number Bed", with lots of cushy pillows and twinkle lights in the canopy! There is a small fridge, free Wifi, wine glasses and a tea pot, as well as flat screen tv with cable or satellite.
The covered front porch has 2 old fashioned rocking chairs and a mountain view. The back door leads to a private, outdoor, enclosed deck with a hot tub and twinkle lights overhead. That with a glass of wine was what we needed after a tiring day. We could hear the river as we relaxed. It was wonderful.
Owners Janie and Oliver were delightful! VERY pleasant, personable and accomodating. And their "hired hand", John, is a comic delux. They are all very knowledgable about the history of the area and of this place, built in 1926. It is fascinating!
We love that it is near the river and you can walk down to it and around the property. They have a wonderful cabin near the river for massages. We didnt get to take advantage of that, but will next time!
We didnt see any wildlife while we were there, but stayed for only one night. They do have 3 adorable, rescue dachsunds who are precious.
In the morning you are treated to a complimentary breakfast that was delicious! All homeade items - a full meal for sure. The oatmeal with raisins was to die for as well as polenta, mixed fruit, eggs, hashbrown and sausage casserole, homemade bread, jellies, OJ, coffee, the works! It is served in a great rustic dining room so everyone can meet and talk - we met some great people from Boston and Chicago.
This place is very clean and the rates are extremely reasonable! We hated to leave and will definitely be back soon to spend several days - before Janie and Oliver retire!!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are probably great. We had the Pine Canopy - cozy and comfortable - with a pr...

Janie fit us in last minute with our little dog, Butter. The cabin was perfect for decompressing from East Coast life. We ended up staying an extra day lounging in the mountain air in our private hot tub overlooking the creek. We plan to bring the family back next May for vacation in the family area.

Room Tip: Couples are far away from kids and the landscape and babbling creek keep noise to minimum

My husband and I recently stayed at Dripping Springs. It was incredible. The hospitality was wonderful. The breakfast was excellent, cabins very clean. The hot tubs on the decks were definitely and added bonus as well as the massage cabin near the water. The grounds were very well kept and on the river. Beautiful views & private fishing. It is like they pretty much give you the place to yourself. We would go back every time. Owners were very accomodating and friendly. I cannot say enough great things about the place! Janie offered a military discount. This was so appreciated.

We called last minute on our way up, and they fit us in their last room. It was a very nice room with a very comfortable king size bed. They are right on the creek, so its so peaceful on their property. Also, a great breakfast in the morning!

Our visit to first trip Dripping springs was for our honeymoon! We stayed several nights in the fishing room! We both loved the private deck with hot tub. It had a nice view of the river! We hope to make a 2nd trip back soon!

My husband and I have stayed at Dripping Springs twice. The first time we went we loved the experience from beginning to end. The grounds are beautiful, the river is peaceful, the rooms are adorable and comfortable, and breakfast is delicious. Janie and her family are wonderful people.

We enjoyed our time at Dripping Spring so much that when my husband proposed we planned our wedding in Colorado and had our entire family stay at the B&B. Janie married us which was particularly special to us. She did an amazing job of making all of our guests feel comfortable and she wrote a wedding ceremony that was absolutely perfect for us. I can't say enough good things about her or the resort.

We have stayed in two different rooms, but have seen most of them due to our family staying there together. All of the rooms are great and the private hot tub is a wonderful perk. You can't go wrong.

We will definitely go back. In fact, we're already discussing returning for the 3rd time to celebrate our one year anniversary at the same place where we fell in love, and then later spent the first part of our honeymoon.

Love, love, love it there. The only complaint I can come up with is that the showers in many of the rooms are sort of small, but it most certainly would not stop me from going back again and again. Dripping Springs is a little piece of heaven.
