This was our 4th trip in 5 years to RMNP and Estes Park. Each year we have stayed at Idlewilde by the River and each year we leave refreshed and rejuvenated. This year we stayed in Cannonball and we liked the upgrades over previous years. Deb and Larry were great hosts…although I’m sure every guest shows off the videos and pictures, they take the time to show their interest as if they are seeing something for the first time. Overall, I would rate this quiet and peaceful little haven a 10 out 10 stars. We will be back because the Mountains is in our blood and we will stay in Idlewilde because it is perfect.

Riverside is our premium 1 bedroom cabin located on the river's edge. With 1 queen and 1 double bed, this cabin is designed to accommodate a maximum of 4 people. The sound of the rushing river is highly audible throughout the entire cabin.

Like all the other single bedroom cabins, it offers cable TV, a fully functional kitchen, dining area, living area, and a screened porch with a swing.

Located at the base of 100 ft pine trees, Riverside is in a heavily shaded area with picnic tables, barbecue grills, and outdoor chairs all just outside the door. Riverside is extremely close to the river's edge, so consider this when traveling with small children.

We have been coming to Estes Park for many years and this was out first stay at Idlewilde. We do not see us staying any place else from now on! Very nice comfortable cabin on the river with everything you need. Deb and Larry are terrific and make you feel very welcome. Can't wait to return to Idlewilde by the River!!!

Just left Riverside today and had a great stay. Have been to Ildewilde each year for 4 years now and the first time with Deb & Larry. What a nice couple, they make you feel right at home. They have already made a few changes and they are lovely, can't wait to see some more. Not that it wasn't great before, just better now!!!! Can't wait to see you next year.

Tim and I chose to get married at Idlewilde cabins, as it held a special spot in my families hearts. The year before, we spent a long weekend with my family; our mom had terminal cancer and we wanted one final special vacation with her. She has since passed, and we are left with wonderful memories, sitting along side the river and just being together. One year later, Tim and I got married along side this same river. We rented 6 cabins for all of our famiies and celebrated with laughter, love, and new and old memories. Deb and Larry were wonderful hosts and were more then accommodating to help make our time here special once again. This is a little piece of heaven and we intend on coming back again! -Karen and Tim
