The RIVER and the SOLITUDE are what sets us apart from all the others. We want our guests to have a romantic, magical and delightfully different experience than everyday life while here. Our website is like a book of our lives, a journey thru the last 2 decades. Please enjoy and explore it!
Our Cottage Rooms were built around 1926, they are made for couples only, with private hot tubs for each one. This is the B&B, and of course a scrumptious breakfast is included with just the Cottage Rooms. Come for the Romance, renew your vows with nature and each other by the river under the pines.
Let us make your honeymoon, anniversary, or birthday a wonderful experience.These rooms are also pet friendly by prior appointment, but for very small well behaved lap dogs only!
Do you know that our nights are so cool all summer that AC is a rarity up here, you just don't need it when our nights dip into the 40's in the summer.
Dripping Springs Cabins are for Families, Couples or Singles. Our Family Friendly Cabins are perfect for small family groups or couples, featuring a private hot tub and river views from each cabin.See our cabin descriptions for all the ammenities. We welcome families with children in this section where there is ample room for them to enjoy nature.They are pet friendly with prior arrangements. It's also a perfect spot for reunions and corporate retreats.
The Big Thompson River runs around us in a circle, leaving us on a peninsula, so we have lots of privacy. We are just 1 1/2 miles outside of town, close to dining and shopping and Rocky Mountain National Park. We are high in the Rockies, at 7500 ft, the summers are nice and cool. Wildlife is abundant on our 5 acre property, and fishing is great.
Each summer happy couples come to be married on our riverside dock, or under the big cliffs by the river. We do any type of ceremony you wish, and we design it to fit you. We specialize in elopements, and small weddings. I am a non denominational wedding officiant. I run the resort with my husband, and our wonderful staff. We welcome everyone to share in the beauty that belongs to us all and can be found in this tranquil mountain setting.

Our Inn could be your Inn.... Have you ever wanted to be an Innkeeper?? Are you selling your business, getting ready to semi-retire, tired of the stock market ups and downs? Invest in a proven business that is also a beautiful lifestyle.
The September 13 flood did some damages to our lower cabins, all cosmetic, and we will be ready for the 2014 season, and they are even nicer.
Real Estate is the only safe place left for your investments. If the dollar devalues,or the stock market crashes you will still have your land.
We have the most wonderful lifestyle imaginable. We work about 6 1/2 months each year, then travel the other 5 months. You could work year round or maybe 8 or 9 months and take off on adventures of your own.
If you feel you are a qualified buyer, with substantial cash for a down payment, and would like more information on buying our Inn, please contact our realtor, Jay Harroff with Prudential in Estes Park.
We have owned Dripping Springs for 20 years and our grandchildren and moms are in Texas, so we want to move back there to be with family.
A word to our current guests, who mostly know that we are planning on retiring someday, the new Innkeepers will be trained by us and will probably bring more exuberance and style to this Inn than we do, so please don't worry, you will still love Dripping Springs. Wish us Luck!
