Historic Dripping Springs, a Private Resort, is 3 minutes from Estes Park Colorado, and Rocky Mountain National Park, on a beautiful "Gold Medal" trout stream called the Big Thompson River.

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 your own personal private hot tub for each one. This is the B&B, and of course a scrumptious breakfast is included with 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, for very small well behaved lap dogs only, under 20 pounds. The fee is 20 per night per pup. Call for pre approval. 

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 pets under 20 pounds,  with prior arrangements. . The fee is $ 20 per pet per night.  It's also a perfect spot for reunions and corporate retreats.



The "Gold Medal" Big Thompson River runs around us in a circle, which means we have the best trout fishing arounnd, and 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.As you know Colorado is now a 420 friendly state. We remain a non smoking property indoors, but have designated smoking areas for our guests.


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.
