What a joy to experience this beautiful enclave of hand-built cabins, steps from the Rio Grande river in South Fork, Colorado. Paula and Fritz went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable. They are so welcoming, and love to share their favorite local spots as well as answering any questions about how they constructed their cabins. We chose to spend a day driving the amazing Silver Thread Scenic Byway after exploring the beginning of the Bachelor Loop in Creede, one day spent reading and relaxing by the river, and two days hiking various nearby trails. The property is perfectly situated for a quiet getaway, while still being minutes from outdoor adventures, lots of wildlife, and several restaurants. The town of Creede is only about an hour’s scenic drive and has a super Visitor’s Center, plenty of restaurants, a theater, and the start of the Bachelor Loop historic mining self-guided tour.

We stayed in the charming Guest Cabin and were lulled to sleep by the sound of the river only 10 feet from our window. The cabin had a beautiful wooden sleigh bed, extremely comfortable with high-quality pillows and Egyptian cotton sheets; two leather armchairs great for relaxing and reading by the little gas stove; a mini fridge and coffee maker with creamers and coffee provided; plenty of closet space; a full bathroom with instant-on hot water, nice fixtures, and a hand-crafted tin mirror. There were lovely details everywhere, from the hand-carved colorful masks, to beautiful decorative textiles, and even small sculptures on the window ledges. There is a communal fire pit with views of the river, and a separate seating area with table and chiminea for the Guest Cabin. We enjoyed starting out one cool, crisp Autumn morning with a dip in the hot tub set on a deck surrounded by tall pines. If weather and schedules permit, there are also inflatable kayaks for guests. Paula and Fritz provide so many extras to ensure a fabulous stay--flip a light switch for twinkle lights on the outside eaves of each cabin, there is plenty of wood for the fire pit or chiminea, a hammock, tables and outside seating, even a rope swing on the property! If you're fortunate you might have the pleasure of playing with their pet dog Kenai and pet cat Lucky.

We look forward to returning to Riverside Meadows Cabins and highly recommend this wonderful vacation property.

Found Riverside Meadows on Trip Advisor and was able to secure a last minute weekend reservation and we are very happy we did! The lovely accommodations (studio unit) and setting were only surpassed by the welcome and kindness of the owners Fritz and Paula!!!! The accommodations were comfortable, very clean and met our needs perfectly.

The property is well maintained and lovely. Fritz shuttled us to kayak and provided great insight to the river during this late summer/low water conditions. He even took the time to stop along our route to make sure all was going well! Both Fritz and Paula met us Riverside of their property to help us take out our kayaks - far above and the norm.

Sitting and visiting with our hosts enjoying our picnic lunch was a wonderful ending to our nice weekend. THANK YOU Fritz and Paula - you are wonderful hosts! We highly recommend Riverside Meadows.

Fritz, Paula, and Sadie along with Kenai the dog will work to make sure your stay is restful and pleasant. We stayed in the Master cabin right on the banks of the Rio Grand river. The beautiful cabin is 530 sq feet. Large bathroom with a deep tub makes a cozy
Hideaway.

Room Tip: Ask for the master cabin. No kitchens, but great grilling on the river banks

Thanks for the wonderful comments, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay! I will correct one thing, the Master cabin is about 350 s/f. Thanks again.

Travel safely,

Nice little cabin off the beaten path, the owners were great host. Located on the river, It was enjoyable I wish we would have stayed longer. If you are in to fly fishing this would be a great spot. We have marked this as a place to return to.

This was a great place to stay! We slept so well in the superb bed. Everything was high quality. The Allens were friendly with helpful tips.
Loved the dog.
The sounds of the river was soothing.
We were sad to leave.
