    We had a wonderful 5 night stay at this rustic resort by the river! We stayed at the cabin that was within 3 feet of the river and went to sleep each night to the nice sound of the rushing water! The cabin was comfortable...More

    Upon arrival we were greeted by managers Deb and Larry. They were so anxious to make sure our stay was as rewarding as possible. Great place to stay! Great place to relax and enjoy the river. Our neighbor was even catching a few small fish.

    My two week stay could not have been better! Convenient location, clean and well maintained cabin, helpful management. Right by the Big Thompson River. Easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park. Highly recommend Idlewilde. We will definitely be back!

    Great location to Estes Park and Rocky Mtn. National Park. Cabins are comfortable and well stocked with the necessary kitchen supplies. Unfortunately, we are used to a king size bed, the cabins have comfortable queens. I like the river sound but it was noticeable.

    If you want a somewhat old timey experience with nice amenities, select Idlewilde. We like the rustic cabins, ours right on the river, but enjoyed the hot tub, modern kitchen, welcoming hosts and horseshoes!
