General Information about our Cabins

CABIN GUIDELINES

The cabin you rent is just for your family. You MAY NOT have any other guests at any time. It is a private Resort for guests who have rented the cabin. Each cabin has a specific number of guests who can stay in it. We do allow one or two extra people  if the cabin has a couch, at 10$ per night pp (see the max for each cabin )For your comfort kids only on couches.

Your Responsibilities

All we ask that you do is not leave any of your things behind and tidy up just a bit before you leave, this just takes a few minutes!

Wash your dishes . Don't make the beds you used but do check between the sheets and under the bed for your things. Leave the doors unlocked, bring the key when you come to check out at the office.If it is early we have a key box beside the door. If you have usable leftover foods, you can leave it in the fridge. Because of Bears, never leave any food outside in the trashcans overnight or early morning.

A one time $ 30 cleaning fee is added to your reservation upon booking as we do not require a damage deposit. Extra cleaning and damages may be assesed if the cabin is not found in reasonable condition. That is all we ask you to do, and we thank you for making sure you take all your things with you so you don't have to have them shipped to you.

What is in your cabin?

All Cabins come ready to occupy, ( sheets,blankets,plenty of towels, robes, hair dryers) You provide your own housekeeping, food and cooking during your stay.The kitchens have enough dishes and utensils for the number of people the cabin holds, there may be some things like salt/pepper and condiments, but no food. There are coffee filters for the coffee makers. We provide toilet paper, dish soap, hand soap and shower gel. Anything we don't provide you are responsible for. We are on hand to help with your needs.There are laundry facilities in town. Each day we empty your outside trash barrel and clean your hottub, otherwise we don't bother you. But if you have any problems with your cabin please let us know right away so we can make it right!

All are complete with linens, pots and pans, dishes, soaps, gas grills, picnic tables and ALL have a private Hot Tub on a deck outside of the cabin. You may want to bring beach towels for hot tub and river use.

The Dancing Bear

(was the Oso)

Just another day in Bearadise! What a great cabin, whimsical, and full of bears left by guests. But these are toy bears, not like the real black bears you may see by the river! This 2 story cabin has a distinctive romantic mountain style, and dancing bears are everywhere in its theme. It has a full updated kitchen with a glass top convection oven. The cozy living room/dining room has sat.tv and a camdlelit fireplace .

The master has been transformed into a true retreat, with a king sleep number bed, and an epic lighted headboard made by John from a barn door. Enjoy the wonderful linens and fluffy pillows. Ceiling fans in the LR and master bedroom make our cool nights more comfy. We do not have ac, it is rarely warm here. The sound of the river is amazing in the master and all areas of the cabin. The adorable bath is beside the ground floor master bedroom and has a 3/4 size antique claw foot tub/shower.

Up the spiral staircase is the upper bunk room with a private balcony overlooking the river and forest. It reminds you of a tent, comfortable enough for adults, but lots of fun for kids. There are two full beds and a little reading nook here .

Oso is our pet name for the Dancing Bear!

Enjoy your large outdoor hot tub on the back deck by the river under the stars, where you also have a gas grill for cookouts. Make memories at the firepit and picnic area by the river! Its quiet and beautiful location will make you want to stay here all summer and is the quietest spot on the property. Enormous ponderosa pines tower overhead.
You will just love the Dancing Bear, a romantic retreat for two or four.

The Pinewood Cabin

What makes a cabin so well loved by all our guests? Maybe the huge Aspen Log king bed, the centerpiece of this one room cabin. Maybe it is the twinkle lights on the high ceiling, the rustic feel of the exterior, the location? Maybe all of these. All our return guests who loved the Pinewood, you should see what we did to her! Now the cabin has a beetle kill pine wood plank ceiling and floor, ceiling fan, gas fireplace, plus the small kitchen and bathroom. To give you some ammenities you like, we added a flat screen tv, a comfy lounge chair and a bistro table for two. On the covered porch facing the river is a dining table and chairs, and some comfy antique chairs. A few steps away down the boardwalk is a deck with your private bubbling hot tub under the stars and yet another bistro table and chairs, you will enjoy every inch of this cabin. A firepit by the river is a great place to spend the evening. The kitchen is complete enough for a weeks stay, and if the free wifi does not have a strong signal, come up to the pond patio by the office to do your work online.(or leave your work at home for once, this is a time to renew and relax. Our nights are often cool enough in the summer to use quilts, so only fans are provided. Every inch of this little cabin is meant for romantic encounter!

The Alamo

Alamo is the spanish word for the Aspen trees that cover our riverbanks. When we bought this cabin it's profile reminded us of the Alamo in Texas, hence the new Tex-Mex decor . It was once the home of a spanish priest back in the 1940s, or so the story goes! Now it is a favorite for romantic couples.
The Alamo cabin overlooks the Big Thompson River, and is under a towering rock cliff, giving you a marvelous view of the river and canyon walls with a firepit right on the river. I would say it is the most private of all inside its walled patio. Closest to the road but very well insulated and quiet inside, and night time traffic is very minimal.

The cozy and romantic bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom w/shower. Wrap yourself in our fluffy robes and spa towels and sleep on high quality linens in a comfortable handmade pine bed.

In the living room is a sofa/futon, and a small wood burning fireplace, and satellite TV. The little kitchen is just right for preparing your vacation meals and is fully equipped. The bubbling private hot tub is just out the bedroom door on the covered porch facing the river. A walled private courtyard has lovely natural landscaping and old pavers stepping down to the cabin. You can see interior photos by clicking on the photo tour link below. If you need two beds, the futon pulls out, we will allow a small child for a 3rd person in this cabin.

  • Private hottub
  • Firepit by the river

  • Free Wifi
  • AC although our nights are very cool!

Willow

You are going to love this cottage done in country chic and over the top romance!. This wee little cottage is sweet and rustic. .I think the little people lived here once, their magic is still seen in the twinkle lights on the stick pergola over the hottub and the twinkling twig ceiling in the bedroom where the sound of the river will lull you to sleep.

Lots of outdoor deck space and a green yard make the little cabin feel larger than it is( it is small!). The front looks like a tent cabin, with the covered pergola and tent swags where again you have twinkle lights everywhere!..

A kitchenette to cook your meals with the help of a gas grill on the front deck,simple!. A table for two and umbrella on the front deck are for dining al fresco. There is a table and bar stools with umbrella on the deck in back, by your own private hottub.. where you will spend much of your time viewing the cliffs and the river.

The small bedroom is great for togetherness and has a comfortable plush queen bed!, The adjacent bathroom has a shower. Compact but complete and well equipped, it has just what you need for the most splended romantic stay!. You can view interior photos by clicking on the photo tour link below.

On cool nights stay warm at the firepit by the river, where there is a picnic table and a shelter.If you see the little people dancing by the fire just tip your hat and smile!
