We'll be back...

We fell in love with Idlewilde the first time we found it, by accident, on a prior trip to Estes Park. The setting is perfect - right along the Big Thompson River, among towering, mature Ponderosa Pines. The atmosphere is informal, and the staff is so friendly. We had a group of 10 family members in three different cabins. Everyone had a wonderful time. The evening community campfires, only feet from the stream, were a definite highlight. Cannot find a single negative thing to say. We'll be back

We will return...

After two days of rough camping at the RMNP the cabin by the river was just the medicine we needed to recover. Donna and Tom were awesome. always helpful, kind and informative. Marc, the owner works hard to maintain and improve the place. Everyone there is very friendly. The cabins are clean, peaceful with all the necessary amenities - a place we will sure go back to.

This place IS Colorado to me!

Once more, we drove our way from Kansas City to the most beautiful spot on earth this summer-- Idlewilde by the River. At least it's tops in my humble opinion. Our cabin was its usual guest-friendly abode, the hummingbirds at our kitchen window our constant companions. The river just feet from our door splashed away with a noise that is no less symphonic than the offering of a philharmonic orchestra. Our screened-in porch a haven rain or shine. The new managers were friendly and efficient, the housekeeping just fine. This place IS Colorado to me. Simply divine!

Next time we will stay 10 nights!

The kids, Olga myself really enjoyed our stay at Idlewilde this year. This was our 5th stay at Idlewilde. As usual, we caught a number of trout in the river right in front of our cabin. We also enjoyed the hot tub and the playground. There is so much to do at Idlewilde, in Estes Park and in RMNP. I've decided that 7 nights there is not enough - next time we'll stay for 10 nights.

As usual, our trip was the BEST ever...

Idlewilde is the ONLY place to stay while in Estes Park ....It is hard to get a reservation PLAN EARLY !!! It is so worth it !!! My husband and our children with grandchildren came for a week and stayed in the Linger Longer. It was Perfect except we would have enjoyed more time to Linger Longer !!! The cabin was spotless, the grounds were pristine and we even got a middle of the night company a cub at the cabin next to ours !!! It was awesome to see the cub swipe the hummingbird feeder down and drink the sugar water..... We enjoyed ourselves so much we already booked our 2015 solitude time...... I can hardly wait to June of next year already !!! Thanks to Tom and Donna and of course it was great to see Lloyd and Donna on the property this year too.....You are all part of our extended family now !!!!!!! Again thanks so much !

We love Idlewilde!

We just returned from our annual trip to Estes Park, and as usual, we stayed at Idlewilde. Our first trip to Estes Park was about 26 years ago when our boys were young. We stayed at Idlewilde then and fell in love with it. On our first trip we stayed in the Holiday cabin. We have stayed in several of the other cabins over the years, but last year and this year we stayed in the Holiday again. We also have already reserved the Holiday for our 2015 trip. The river is so soothing and sitting on your screened in porch listening to it is great!! We recommend Idlewilde to anyone we know who is visiting Estes Park. We would never stay anywhere else in Estes. Tom and Donna are great, as were Lloyd and Donna last year. Very friendly and helpful. Best place to stay in Estes Park. Can't wait till next year!!

We just spent one fantastic week at Idlewilde...

We had a large group in two cabins Naughty Pine & Shemara, and the accommodations were great. Tom & Donna were wonderful hosts and we even got to visit with Lloyd & Donna one afternoon. We have been staying at Idlewilde for several years now and our group gets bigger every year. We are already looking forward to our week there next year! Thank you for the peace and serenity of Idlewilde by the River.

Very relaxing quiet place to stay

Donna and Tom bent over backwards to keep us happy. We stayed at the Dun-workin cabin which is very small but very comfortable. We had seen previous posts about this cabin having a bad bed and no hot water. We thought the bed was very comfortable and we never had a problem with hot water even after both of us took long showers. The sound of the river was comforting and there was easy access to shopping and RMNP. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience. Thanks a million Donna!"
