Thank you so much for the hospitality! We loved our cabin and you made us all feel so warm and welcomed. Here's a little something for you from our place in the UP of Michigan. Jim told us how he had connections up north in Michigan. Thank you again for everything. We are planning on returning sometime. Hope you enjoy your time off. Sincerely, Mike and Lisa and family.
Jim, Becky, and Lucy: Thank you for the exceptional hospitality this week. We have had a wonderful time. I don't think either of us have been this relaxed in a long time. And oh those great muffins! Jim, thank you for the opportunity of experiencing fly fishing. Please go out and have lunch or dinner on us. Thanks again, Brian and Peggy
Dear Jim and Becky, What special inspirational people you are! We are so blessed to have been pointed here. The beauty, care, and love you show is felt in all that you do. Thank you for helping to make this such a wonderful place and a wonderful vacation. We look forward to meeting again. XOXO, Cathy and Al.
Awesome weekend at River Spruce! Can't say enough about the wonderful accomodations, location and Wendye and Shelley. So relaxed and revived :) Thank you!!!
Another pic proving that there really are fish in the river right outside the cabin front door!
We loved loved loved our stay in Sunshine with Jim and Becky as our hosts! What a great vacation! Jim got us up to speed on the fly fishing- Thank you! We truly could not have been happier with River Spruce. Exceeded our dreams! We've recommended River Spruce to our friends and will be back for sure!
We had such a great time during our stay in early June of 2015. Your property is beautiful and the Windwalker Cabin was the perfect size for our little family. Thank you for being a part of some wonderful memories. The boys can't wait to come back and spend more time with Lucy! - Jeremy, Tracy, Eli & Wyatt
We loved River Spruce for the 2nd year in a row! The cabins are clean, comfortable and well-stocked with anything we needed during our stay. Jim and Becky were great hosts. They were very informative and gave great directions to different places around Colorado. My husband loved the fishing. The morning baked goods were fabulous. Will be back again!
This was mine and Ciana's first time staying in a cabib in Estes Park (4/28/2015 - 4/30/2015) and we are glad we choose River Spruce. The cabin (Tom Tom) was newly re-modeled and was amazing. We are looking forward to going back again someday, we will definately choose River Spruce again!! Wendye and Shelley were excellent hosts, very frindly, and down to earth people. Morning muffins were warm and delicious. Thank you both for what you do to make your guests stay warm and welcome.
We stayed there in August for our anniversary and LOVED IT!!! We can't wait to go back. Thank you for a wonderful time.
9/12/13. Wendye and Shelley, thanks for a wonderful stay at River Spruce. This is a different post than most because our stay was cut short when we were forced out by the flood! We wanted to thank you for your calmness in helping us evacuate safely, including letting us tramp through your house with wet shoes and luggage, and we will definitely check to be sure that our home away from home made it safely through the storm, along with all of you. Can I stil get my morning muffin :-)
We just returned home from a great week at River Spruce, and I'm ready to go back. The location is beautiful, the cabin was great, very clean, loved it. Can't forget to mention the muffins/coffee cake each morning, great way to start the day. I plan on going back next year. Thank you.
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.
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 works!
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. 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
You guys rock!!! Wendy, Shelly and the Moms, you have something very special going and we hope that many more will be able to experience what we had the privelage too. Thank you so much for making our honeymoon everything we could have imagined it to be. love always, the Nilsens Brent and Melissa Nilsen edit
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.
