Bottom Line

Set on 27 wooded acres in Estes Park, on the banks of the picturesque Big Thompson River, the 10-room Romantic RiverSong Bed and Breakfast Inn is a boutique romantic hideaway for couples. In addition to each of the individually decorated rooms and cottages, the inn has plenty of distinctive touches, like an extensive homemade breakfast daily, thoughtful picnics prepared by the chef, and an oversized lawn chessboard, popular with local elk. Some rooms and cottages have fireplaces and patios overlooking the river. Guests complain, however, that rooms do not offer TVs or air-conditioning; if that’s a problem, try the Rams Horn Village Resort, which offers flat-screen TVs.

Scene

A romantic forest retreat, bursting with rustic-luxury charm 

With its 27 picturesquely wooded acres, craftsman main house, individually designed cottages with stunning Rocky Mountain views, free gourmet breakfasts, and romantic atmosphere, it’s easy to see why the Romantic RiverSong Bed and Breakfast Inn was featured in the “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” travel book. The owners' own romantic story has been perpetuated by the many couples who marry and honeymoon here, attracted by the personalized experience -- beginning at check-in with fresh cookies -- and charming interior decor. The main office -- a green and yellow cottage accessed via a stone walkway -- welcomes guests with framed photographs, a stone fireplace, a chessboard, plush leather sofas, a library, and a wooden staircase. There are patio chairs and lounge chairs on a brick terrace, where elk often wander by. Wooden lounge chairs are also positioned along the Big Thompson River.

Location

Tucked away on 27 forested acres along the Big Thompson River, next to Rocky Mountain National Park

Located on 27 forested acres, the Romantic RiverSong Bed and Breakfast Inn sits practically at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, with hiking trails and activities led by the parker ranger. It’s a 12-minute car ride to the Estes Park Golf Course. The closest Starbucks is nine-minutes by car. Driving to the Denver airport takes an hour and 40 minutes. Kirk’s Fly Shop -- located eight minutes by car in downtown -- hosts fishing trips. Glen Haven General Store, with famous cinnamon rolls, is a 23-minute car ride. Eldora Mountain Resort, which is a car trip of an hour and 15 minutes, offers skiing and snowboarding. The owners at RiverSong will happily help you arrange excursions and adventures.

Rooms

Individually decorated rooms and cottages with unique decor, quirky designs, fireplaces, and patios

The Romantic RiverSong Bed and Breakfast Inn offers a truly unique and memorable experience through its rooms and cottages, which have names inspired by wildflowers. Each is filled with hand-picked decor and antique furniture, inspired by the romantic mountain surroundings; for example, the Mountain Rose room has with stunning mountain views from a rooftop shower and the Indian Paintbrush cottage has a swing bed. Most have fireplaces, bathrobes, sofa beds, living rooms, kitchenettes or mini-fridges, modern bathrooms (some have whirlpool tubs), balconies or decks, and all the requisite home conveniences -- aside from TVs and air-conditioning, the latter of which is rarely necessary in the area. Romantic packages and veteran discounts are available. There's also a dog-friendly room.

Features

Free breakfast and afternoon tea, lawn chess games, backpack picnics, and gourmet dinners upon arrangement

Breakfast and free tea, coffee, and cookies are all served in an elegant breakfast room in the main cottage. The room is bright with large windows facing the forest and light-wood decor, including small tables with two chairs apiece and a larger table with eight seats. There are 30 different breakfasts listed on the menu, including the John Wayne Casserole or Happy Trail Muffins. Backpack picnics, five-course meals, or candlelit gourmet dinners can be prepared with some prior arrangement for an additional fee. Outside, there’s a delightful lawn chessboard game with oversized pieces and views of the lush forest. Curious elk can often be found grazing around the board. Note that Wi-Fi is available for a fee.
