Guestbook comments from the manager

I loved my stay at River’s Edge and would recommend it to a family for a great vacation. The town of Cuchara is so quaint and the people are very friendly. Two good places to eat in town.

Colorado slice of Heaven

The outdoor space at this home is so welcoming and serene on the Cuchara river !!! The home is well stocked and comfortable for a large group, the owner was on-site and a delight to get to know as well as her dog Riley....and yes the home has pet friendly availability and literally steps away from the renown Dog Bar & Grill....highly highly recommend!

Charming and comfortable for our family group from 2 to 98 years old

  • 4 of 5

The deck and patio area made great play and visiting areas. The house was very clean. We appreciated the cable TV to see some World Cup games. Also we had strong WiFi. The house is a short walk to shops, playground and church. The owner of the house was friendly and kind ,and overall, every thing worked out well for our Cuchara visit.

Family reunion. My sister and I had never gotten all of our children and grandchildren together. Her son & daughter, their spouses, and their 3 children. My two daughters, theirs spouses, and their 5 children. Plenty of room for everyone. A shallow creek where even the smaller children could safely play. Lovely rooms, and plenty of bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen. We hiked, went horseback riding, played miniature golf, fished, and had plenty of time for card games. Loved it.

We could not have had a better Christmas vacation! River's Edge was the perfect place for our family of 15 to spend Christmas together.

Great place for a large family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a good location. In some of the bedrooms, the windows can be opened to hear the sound of the river, and enjoy the cool air, all night. (July vacation) Plenty of room for our large group. The kids had a great time. The little town of Cuchara is so cute, and the older kids were able to go to the stores by themselves with a few dollars, and have fun. Mini-golf right across the street. Very good kitchen. The house is not perfectly wheelchair accessible--if you are concerned about that, you should discuss it with the owner (who was very easy to contact.) Nice firepit outside for S'mores. Pretty easy drive from Texas.
