We stayed at River Stone Resort during September, 2016, and had a wonderful time. The condo was spacious and clean and had a "mountain lodge" feel. The kitchen was well equipped, the living room was comfortable and the setting right on the river was perfect! Plus, it's location between RMNP and the town of Estes made for easy access either...

This was the best place we stayed on our entire vacation. It was so nice inside and a brook in our back yard. The elk were rutting and came down from the mountains and were in the backyard too. Wish we could have stayed longer

Stayed here because of Trip Advisor reviews. Didn't spend much time in the room, went to RMNP which is why we stayed in Estes Park. Clean small apartment is how I would describe it. Furnishings a bit dated but all work. Not luxury by any means. The buildings are connected to each other and crammed around a parking lot. This... More

We planned well in advance and in August reserved a River Stone Accessible unit for October as an anniversary getaway for two nights.

Cindy was very friendly, allowed us a early check in to drop off our bags. She was very helpful answering all our questions. There were food crumbs on the carpeted areas but she took care of it within a hour. She replaced a quilt that was soiled from one od the beds. The rest of the unit appeared clean.

We stayed in Bear Paw #8 in September 2016. Lovely second-floor condo with full kitchen, living area and king-size bed. Very quiet with the sound of the creek in front.

“The loft design of the unit does not provide for quiet or private time. Because of the noise factor around the building, in the unit, and the highway noise on Fall River Road I would not recommend this location for a getaway. However if your looking for "jumping off place" for all the activities in the area you will be find. The unit we were in is privately own and appears it has not been updated since build. I felt it was over priced. Again the managers were great. Nice people”
