Oh yes, and thank you for the delicious muffins every morning. What a nice treat that was. Was perfect with my coffee and the girls tea.
After 10 years of looking at this place, i finally was able to visit River Spruce in Aug-2012 with my daughters. And let me tell you, what a little peace of heaven on earth it was. Thank you Shelly so much for such a wonderful stay at River Spruce.. I loved my morning coffee along the river. The sounds of running water, and chirping birds and wildlife all around, it was so peacful and serene. I couldn't have asked for anything more. It was everything i had hoped for. Shelly, you are so lucky to wake up to your surroundings everyday. A little peace on earth, thank you so much. Hope to be back soon.
Been coming here since 1992 and it's as good , no, "better" than ever each time. Shelly & Wendye have made it a special place. Wouldn't think of staying anyplace else in Estes. Next time we're coming in September for the colors and cooler weather.
My husband Keith, son Connor, and I had a wonderful vacation last week (7/1-7/6/2012) in Estes Park. River Spruce is amazing!!! The homemade muffins, the hummingbirds, the sound of the river....just wonderful! We stayed at the Tom Tom cabin and boy was it perfect! RMNP is a beauty..the elk and moose and big horn sheep!!! I highly recommend River Spruce and I'm sure we will be back again!
My wife and daughter and I had the good fortune of staying at River Spruce back in 2007. My daughter lives in Golden, and we wanted to spend a few days in Estes Park...I had been to Estes several times in the past...however, we had no idea at the time. We happened onto River Spruce by luck, choosing from dozens of resorts...WHAT A FIND...LIKE GOLD! I will be back as soon as issues are resolved in Illinois. I love you Ladies at River Spruce! Thank you.
Had a wonderful stay. Tasty muffins and an inquisitive visitor. -Greg
Shelley and Wendye, Thank you for your awesome hospitality! We enjoyed everything about our stay with you. It was fun to get up and enjoy the warm coffee cake that your mom brought by every morning, and it was relaxing to come back in the evenings and enjoy time by the river with our friends. We're not sure when we'll be back, there's a lot we still have to see, but we will be recommending you to anyone we hear of that is heading your way! Enjoy! And keep doing what you're doing...it works!
Shelley & Wendye, thanks so much for a relaxing, perfect stay!!! We did a lot of sight seeing, but we loved just hanging out at the cabin! Hope all is well with you two! We hope to be back someday! XO Kathy & Paul Mencke
Thank you again for a fantastic 4 days, about 86 days too short for me! We are back to Austin and 100+ degree weather. As I listened to our air conditioner hum all night, I tried to imagine it was the Big Thompson river outside our room. Hope you enjoyed our left over wine! We'll be back next year! This pic is of me and my 7 year old daughter on Trail Ridge Rd - the most snow either kids have ever seen! So many memories...
I am so excited to be coming back again this summer.
Thank you so much for such a beautiful and memorable stay and River Spruce. We will be back to celebrate our "married years".
Wendye and Shelley, I am finally getting around to thanking you for a wonderful visit (June 19-25) to River Spruce. When the world looks a little bleak or life become a bit too much, I close my eyes and think of my reading "spot" on the river. Thank you for making our visit to RMNP such a wonderful experience.

It's been 1 year since our last visit and my soul needs you badly !!!! Just today my son asked for the address and phone number to your place to give to a coworker and I looked it up and guess what??? I got that ... aaahhhhhh feeling that I get when I am there with you both. I hope you are doing well. Just wanted to remind you that The Jackson Family misses you and will see you soon. Take care.... until next visit.
We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at River Spruce recently. The setting was beautiful and relaxing. We loved being so close to the river. The cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable and perfect for our family (We staying in The Pueblo.) We appreciated your hospitality. You were gracious and made us feel at home. And the muffins....absolutely wonderful! We will be back as soon as possible. Thanks for a great stay!
I want to thank you for the wonderful time we spent at River Spruce. It was exactly what I had hoped it would be. Peaceful and restorative. Sitting by the river was calming yet invigorating. You are definitely on my list of places to steal away to. Many Thanks Wanda Clary
Wendye & Shelley, Thank you again for a wonderful stay in the Pueblo. The weather you ordered for us was spectacular and, as nice as the cabins are, we didn´t spend nearly enough time there!! I trust we left everything in good order and didn´t make too much noise packing and leaving before 6am (it was tricky to get the bear-bar off the dumpster in the dark and keep things silent). While we are there, we always look around at lodging options (we like to try new places). But the full kitchens you offer are a real standout, and allow us to bring food with us. Many cabins don´t offer that, or they do at substantial premiums. Some hotels are cheaper, but when one then adds in restaurant costs in Estes Park, well... I guess what I´m saying is that your hospitality, your beautiful location on the Big Thompson, the quality of the cabins, and your pricing all combine to make River Spruce a value that´s impossible for us to beat anywhere else. Thank you again for everything.
ABSOLUTELY a great place to stay...thank you for your hospitality and muffins!!! First time to visit and won´t be the last. Shhhh...be vewy, vewy, qwiet...I´m hunting hummingbirds. ;-)
John and I loved River Spruce so much we are gonna come back every other year and stay longer.We enjoyed our cozy little Cottage and Hot Tub by the River and the Humming Birds are VERY entertaining. On the morning we left was a wonderful River Spruce treat when we saw the bear across the River after eating the delicious Muffins you brought us. I went fishing for the first time at River Spruce and caught a Rainbow Trout on my first try. Your beautiful dogs were very sweet and loving Ill always remember the Border Collies sweet little love cuddle she gave me lol. I miss River Spruce already and its been 3 days. I cant wait to come back.
Greetings! Jesse and I are back in Chicago and still glowing from our wonderful vacation - of which you were a big part! We feel absolutely blessed to have found your establishment, it could not have been a more perfect place to spend our relaxing week. The river, the cozy cabin, the muffins, the hummingbirds, the hot tub, and your friendly hospitality were superb. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a fantastic time - we hope very much that we make it back your way soon. Sincerely, Anna and Jesse
