My 90-year-old Mom and I enjoyed a fantastic 4-day get-away at Mountain River Inn. The river, the flowers, the hummingbirds, the cool breeze and warm sun, all created a beautiful sense of relaxation, peace and well-being. Erin and Mark were so kind and accommodating with my Mother's dietary needs. Excellent gourmet breakfasts served on the outside deck began each wonderful...

Hi Gloria Ann - Finally responding to our feedback we have received after our very crazy and busy summer! Really glad your and your mom enjoyed your stay here. Our flowers were absolutely beautiful this year (partly because that Mountain Lion kept the dang deer away). The flowers are pretty much done for the year. Come back any time!

What a fantastic place. The river is literally right out the back door. Between the spa and the sound of the river, I could have relaxed and/or slept a lot. However, too many outdoor activities to sit still. The food was fabulous. Sweet one morning, savory the next. Did I mention the hosts - Erin and Mark? Wonderful, friendly people....

What a beautiful and relaxing bed and breakfast in a charming setting! Everything about our stay was perfect and our hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home. Breakfast was unbelievably delicious and homemade, served on the outdoor deck, truly a 5 STAR! We will definitely return, hopefully for multiple nights.

This was absolutely one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in during our vacation. We were on our way to Utah and, unfortunately, only stayed for a night. The room was decorated nicely, the bed was very comfortable, and the view was unbelievable, right by the Arkansas River. There are spots to sit right by the river or you...

The Mountain River Inn is absolutely stunning. You have gorgeous views of the mountains and the beautiful Arkansas River right in the backyard. The accommodations were very personal with lots of extras. Mark and Erin were the best hosts and provided lots of helpful information about the Buena Vista area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mountain River Inn is a Bed & Breakfast that rests on the banks of the famous Arkansas River, at the foot of the Collegiate Mountain Range in central Colorado, U.S.A. This quiet country setting with mountain & river views in all directions, is located 1.5 miles north of the historic downtown district of Buena Vista, Colorado. Your choice of accommodations includes three large lodging rooms, all with private baths, private riverbank deck entrance, and furnished in either willow, pine, or aspen wood furniture. See individual Room Descriptions for more details. Outside your private entrance is a deck with a patio table and chairs, wild flowers in season, and a path to the outdoor hot tub and down to the river's edge. A full and hearty breakfast is served in our dining room when the weather is cooler, or on the deck when things warm up. On the river's edge is an outdoor kiva fire-pit for evening bonfires and storytelling about the day's adventures of hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, fly fishin', horseback riding, jeepin', 4-wheeling the Four Mile Creek Area, and sightseeing in the Rocky Mountain high country. ... more   less
