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
Hidden Valley is the one place in Rocky where sledding is allowed. It is a pretty gentle hill, but with no tows. For more information on sledding,go to our Winter Activities page.
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.
