Here are a couple of pictures we got with Natalie as she pushed the moose one last time! We had a great time and really appreciated the hospitality you showed us. The bread/muffins were very delicious! You should make a cookbook with those recipes! :) Take care, Wendy, Erik, Jaycie, and Natalie Aanonson
Shelley and Wendye, Thank you both so very much for making our first family vacation a special one. It was a week that we'll always remember. We sincerely enjoyed every minute of our stay at River Spruce and we couldn't have asked for a more gracious and hospitable atmosphere. Thunderbird is a wonderfully cozy cabin, and those short seven days we spent there have truly brought us closer as a family. And those muffins... what else can I say? :) Thanks again. We're already counting the days until our next visit. I've attached a few photos for you. Enjoy! Until next year, Aaron, Jennifer and Allison Cooper
It's been some time, but I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you and send you a photo of our stay at River Spruce last summer. The first morning of our stay, Aaron took me out by the river with a basket of your homemade rolls and asked me to marry him. It was the most perfect setting for one of the most unforgettable mornings of my life. We spent the next few days enjoying the quiet, peaceful beauty of Estes Park, watching the hummingbirds who would visit our cabin every afternoon, and taking in the gorgeous river view from our cabin. Thank you for this beautiful place- we will return on many anniversaries to come! Most sincerely, Katie Wilkins and Aaron Berndt Denver, CO

Wendye and Shelley, Our September vacation was fantastic! The atmosphere was so relaxing as our long-standing tradition at River Spruce continues. It was wonderful to meet both of you and we already look forward to our visit in 2009!
My family and I had never been on a vacation, and it was wonderful. We will never forget the experience we had. Shelley and Wendy made us feel right at home, the day we left I cried because I wish we could have stayed there forever. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable.
I visited River Spruce three times. Once as a romantic getaway, once with the whole family and once as a Mommy's getaway with the girls. Three different cabins and three wonderful times. Shelly and Wendy made the experience wonderful each time. I highly recommend this place and the warm breakfast goodies. yum yum :-) Toy
Wendye and Shelley - Our family stayed at River Spruce in June and wanted to let you know what a wonderfully relaxing time we had. The setting was beautiful - right on the banks of the Big Thompson, and the hospitality was refreshing. Thanks so much for a super experience. If we come back to Estes Park we will certainly be contacting you again. I have attached a photo of half of our family (my son and me) on the deck of our cabin. Thanks again! Bernard, Amanda, Mary Grace, and Jed Cassity
We just wanted you to know that we really enjoyed our stay at River Spruce. You made us feel right at home. Sadly we never got to try to build our fire... but that gives us a reason to return. Thanks, The Krstulic's
Wendye and Shelley, We enjoyed our stay at River Spruce. Our cabin was just as we imagined it would be. We really needed a break from work and your place was the right thing. For me, the fishing was great and was the highlight of our vacation. When we head back to Colorado we hope to stay at River Spruce again. (The morning muffins were fantastic!) John, Amy, Ashton and Jesse
Hi Ladies, We had a great time last week- now it is back to the real world. I see on your web site you have a occupancy calendar- great idea !! Keep up the good work. Hope to see you again soon. Take care and good luck, Carey Carey Wyler
Wendy, Shelley, and Millie - Thanks for helping us have a terrific experience on our vacation. The cabin was perfect, and your hospitality made us feel as if it were our second home. We miss it already - we will definitely be heading back in the future! Sincerely, Ryan, Jenny & Jacob
We had a great time and have attached some pictures as proof. We will have to admit that we were leary of coming back to River Spruce as we had grown attached to Jean, Gad and Katherine and were so afraid the "new owners" wouldn't do it justice. I can now say that you have done an awesome job and the changes are great! Well, except for that mean woman in a robe that made us put our fire out.
We just wanted to let you know we had a great time during our recent stay. You have a great location and well kept cabins. Thanks, Jeff & Barb
Hello Ladies. Just a quick note from Cincinnati. I meant to contact you soon after our visit (in Sept, Namaqua) but life took over:} I did get online this a.m. and watched your video just to remind me of how life should be (in my mind anyway:). Thank you again for your hospitality and the wonderful accommodations. We hope your projects are going well and wish you all the best in your new place in life. Peace, Sharon H. and Roger C.
I am savouring the memories. It was such a special trip for us both, as we had not spent a long weekend together in memory. The setting and accommodations could not have been nicer, and I thank you for your kind and gracious hospitality. We felt part of the River Spruce family. How I hated to leave. On the way back to Denver, we both talked about making this an annual event. I wish you both every success in your wonderful new venture.
hank you again for such a pleasant time at River Spruce. We enjoyed visiting, being greeted, and of course, the delicious muffins. We stayed at Salida, Taos, Santa Fe, and Santa Rosa, NM, on the way back- a good trip.
Thank you Wendy and Shelley. I love your beautiful property. The cabin was so comfortable, I'd love to just move in! And the muffin was great! Such a thoughtful touch.
hank you both for a lovely stay at River Spruce! We had a wonderful week in a gorgeous location and we appreciate all of your help and suggestions and attention to detail (not to mention the yummy muffins!).
Thank you for your hospitality. We had a wonderful time.
