The River Retreat is a historic cabin built in 1925 and completely restored with added conveniences you have come to expect but retains a timeless charm.

This classic Colorado Cabin always books very quickly for the summer months. The location is stunning and this part of the river is very beautiful. We expect that you will enjoy the sounds of the river, the beautiful mountain air, blue skies and our historic cabin which is nestled between beautiful rock outcroppings, beautiful Ponderosa pine trees and the Big Thompson River. The River Retreat Cabin is about 5 minutes from Estes Park, Colorado and only about 10 minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park.

We had a wonderfultime. So peaceful and refreshing, the river just out the front door, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, a great place to set and listen to the river or to try your luck for a trout. The cabin was cozy...More

Plenty of space for our family of 4. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable, and our kids loved having their own space in the attic room. Great kitchen with plenty of supplies. Close drive to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, but nice...More

We have been coming to Estes Park for over 20 years. This was our first time staying outside the YMCA of the Rockies. River Retreat was perfect! My son and husband went fly fishing steps from the front door. In prior visits to Estes, we...More

About the neighbourhood
The River Retreat cabin is in Berthoud Dale, first established in 1925 as a fishing retreat on the Big Thompson river for a small group of families from Berthoud, Colorado. These cabins seldom are for sale and all are quite beautiful and are privately owned. Only two cabins are available as vacation rentals a part of the year, Most cabins belong to families and are used only by the immediate family occasionally so your privacy is assured.

This small community is on the far side of the Big Thompson river and has some 'private fishing water' on the river. Rainbow and Brown Trout are abundant in the river and all fishing is classified as 'catch and release'. I have observed that the river insect population and fish are in great condition even after the 2013 flood and...
