Amazing - Riversong....Rocky Mountain High!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further, this place is amazing! Stayed her over the July 4th week with my multi-family unit and everything was fantastic. The cleanliness and quality of the accommodations and furnishings is unmatched. Kami the owner has thought of everything, and then some. Something for everyone from kids to adults, right on the beautiful property. The list of amenities is too long to mention here, but do refer to the listing, its all there. This property is unique from others I have stayed at in that it has a very large high ceiling "gathering/play room" which includes comfy couches, table tennis, fooseball table, bench dining table for alot of people, TV, and it opens up to the beautiful outdoors, which makes it great for larger families or groups to hang out. The patio/ firepit area is nice and is right on the river, and you will be able to hear the gentle "riversong" sounds from this location while gazing at the stars above. The decor of the place is mountain/colorado pleasant and interesting in every aspect. Great location and near Grand Lake and Granby, and just minutes to the West entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park entrance. Treat yourself to Riversong, you will not regret it.

Truly Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

RiverSong. I truly cannot put into words how wonderful our stay at RiverSong was. The sound of the river, the quiet comfort, the hospitality, the space, the views, the activities in the party barn, all amazing. Everything we needed and more, was right there. Moose, deer, owl, and ground squirrel even came to enjoy our family gathering.We will definitely be returning to RiverSong.

Wonderful place to have our intimate wedding :)

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous and accomadated our 20 guest. We had our wedding right by the river and it was perfect. We saw moose, birds, elk, and mule deer..... Everyday there was something new. The house was well maintained and everyone had enough space to relax and do their own thing. The party barn was perfect for our reception. The owner was very good at communcating with us...as was the house keeper. We are already planning on a return visit to this wonderful place. I miss Colorado already!

Serene, Beautiful and abundant wild life

  • 5 of 5

This property was built for family time! The party barn was an endless source of fun for our teenagers, the large kitchen was perfectly laid out and stocked for family gatherings and the back yard was perfect for early morning coffee by the river and late night smores by the fire. Thank you so much for a week of fun and relaxation!

The experience couldn’t have been any better!

  • 5 of 5

From the attention to detail, comfort, amenities, and communication from the owner throughout the experience, nothing was less the exceptional. Our group of 16 felt at home at Riversong. I just can’t sing the praises for this property any louder. Probably the finest experience I’ve ever had with VRBO, and I rent a lot of vacation and retreat homes!
