Ahhhh.... Serenity!!!! This remote original log cabin is delightfully situated in a mountainous valley. A TRUE MOUNTAIN ESCAPE for you and your dear ones.
Come stay awhile in Cabin by the Creek. Located 2.6 miles up Bittercreek Road. This cabin is nestled among other privately owned cabins away from the hustle and bustle of Red River with views indescribable!
With 2 bedrooms, a loft, and one bathroom, the cabin sits on the side of the mountain and has a large beautiful deck that overlooks the creek that runs below. Walk down to the creek and relax on the chairs as you enjoy the sounds in the mountains and the beautiful view. Lay in the hammock as you watch the aspens sway in the breeze in the bluest of skies or eat outside on the picnic bench enjoying the fresh mountain air.
Inside the cabin, decorated with French Country decor, you'll find a really cozy living area with a wood burning fireplace and gas fireplace, a comfy kitchen with more than the basic cookware. Still on the first level you'll find 2 bedrooms, both with full size beds and 1 bath with a 1890's claw foot tub. Upstairs in the adorable loft is a sleeper sofa. And on the large deck there is a gas grill for your use, along with chairs to sit back in so you can rest, read a book, drink your favorite beverage or enjoy the view. The cabin is also a cozy and romantic getaway for a couple to enjoy each other in a peaceful and beautiful setting.
At night time it's great to have a fire in the fire pit by the creek, and roast hot dogs or marshmallows while looking at the many stars. We have a game closet with board games, horseshoes to play outside, movies for the DVD/VCR, toys for young children, and books for all to read.
Don't forget to make time to enjoy Red River! (Although once you escape the real world, it's hard to go back!) Red River is full of joy and laughter, events and entertainment summer and winter. There are many events along with great skiing, tubing and snow boarding in the winter. Be sure to stop by the Visitor Center to find detailed information about what's going on! Or visit the Community House for a list of free activities for you and your dear ones. Or simply walk the mile-long Main St to absorb the sweet mountainous air! Maybe skip over a block and fly fish in the crisp and refreshing Red River.
Whatever your pleasure.... Cabin by the Creek in Red River is an adventure not to miss!

We have 4 children and 8 grandchildren and it is our joy to spend time with our family here...only not all at once!
It is a special hideaway for all of us and we love to see it shared by others so that they can enjoy the peace and joy of it also. It's our little bit of Heaven on earth.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2005
For years Red River was our family vacation spot. We rented a cabin at Bitter Creek Guest Ranch for our family. Each year we would look for a cabin to buy and then we found Cabin by the Creek and knew it was the one.
We love that it is an original log cabin and not a new replica. It has so much character to it, with the beauty of the outdoors surrounding it. We love the location as it is on a creek, looks at the National Forest mountain side without anything to block the view. The tall aspens are beautiful, and especially in the fall when the leaves turn golden.
It is so peaceful and yet fun for the whole family. And with all the family fun in the city of Red River, it's still the best place on earth! And the weather is always a real plus when it is 100 degrees elsewhere. All year round, this is our place to go.
We love feeding the birds, as you will be able to tell with all the bird feeders. We also have hummingbird feeders on each window as there are so many humminbirds in the area.
Other things we enjoy are sitting on the porch and reading a book or sipping our favoirte beverage, napping on the hammock between the aspens, having a fire in the fire pit and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Also watching the grandchildren walking in the creek with their rubber boots on and making small rafts for their army men out of twigs, and running freely while in plain view. Playing horseshoes outside (these provided). Playing board games or watching a movie at night. Going for long walks to see the ducks on the nearby lakes and exploring the area.
In town we love to go up the slopes on the ski lift and then walk the hiking trails to an old mining camp. We also enjoy tubing down the bunny slope, riding bikes, horseback riding, go-carting, shopping, eating an ice cream cone at the ice cream shop, watching the 'shoot-out' in front of Frye's old town, fishing (there is a free children's lake), 4-wheeling, or just touring around the area and the Enchanted Forest. There is so much to do and more and it's all family fun!
If you look at the calendar on the Chamber of Commerce for Red River you will see all the attractions they have during the year such as the Wine and Cheese festival, Mardi Gras, Octoberfest, antique car ralleys, etc. And of course the skiing is great, along with winter tubing and snow boarding.
We are coming back soon. Our experience was heavenly.
The only reason you all didn't five stars is that the water was so very sulfuric smelling and grey, very grey water. Your well might need service and water testing.
Outside of that issue, it was paradise. During our stay, we got 3 inches snow and the fire place roared. Matter of fact, the wood smoke smell that greeted us when we opened the door, was heavenly and brought back fond memories of my childhood. I work abroad a lot and this was a great time for my wife and I to reconnect.
Beds were a bit hard but that maybe a plus to others. Debatable point but one that we worked around and made comfy.
Management company could use some pointers for better service. They were not ready for us to arrive and had no idea we were coming. We had to wait 30 minutes for them to come, unlock their office and then give us keys / info. Kinda of frustrating. But once we were going up the mountain, we quickly forgot about them.
What a blessing your cabin and location was to us. Thank you.
Just wanted to share, the Cabin by the Creek is a piece of heaven. Quiet, cozy, and awesome! The company we leased from where great to work with, turned us loose to enjoy! Will be back.
We loved this sweet cabin. The location outside of town on a dirt road might not be for everyone, but we loved how secluded and private it was. Another feature we loved was the large deck. We befriended birds, chipmunks and squirrels. The inside was exactly what we were hoping for. Comfortable and cozy, but very rustic. We will look forward to coming back in the winter to watch it snow while sitting by the fire. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
I can't tell you how much I enjoy going to Cabin by the Creek. You feel like you are at home when you walk in the door. My son and I enjoy listening to the creek, feeding the birds and chipmunks, going for walks and playing horse shoes. We have been in the spring, fall and winter. You cant beet them all. It is always hard to pick which season we want to see as it is fun to see the trees blossom, leaves fall and going to down the mountain on a sled. We have seen deer, lots of turkeys, rabbits and of course lots of tracks when we are up there. My favorite is sitting on the front porch closing my eyes and listening to the wind blow the trees and wind chimes back and forth. If you are looking for a relaxing place, this would definitely be it.
Many Thanks to the owners for making this place relaxing, peaceful and family friendly!
We stayed in this cabin in October 2012. When we arrived, the cabin had not been cleaned! We had to call the office to ask them to come out and clean it while we waited. The only thing they did was change the sheets and change the bathroom towels. We had to clean the cabin ourselves. Thank goodness we brought cleaning supplies. There were crumbs on the table and the floor was dirty. We complained to the mgmt, but they didn't resolve this issue for us-just said they were "very sorry." The shower in the tub had very little water pressure and it was difficult to adjust the water temperature. There were so many kickbacks that there was not any place to put our belongings.
We did enjoy feeding the birds with the birdseed provided by the owners. The view was beautiful.
The cabin was an absolute delight! The property is even more beautiful than the pictures listed on the website. We celebrated our anniversary there and were impressed by it tranquility and breathtaking beauty. The cabin was very quaint, beautifully decorated and provided all the comforts of home. The fire pit located next to the river was an awesome place to enjoy a campfire while listening to the rushing water. The hammock and bird journal were really a nice touch. It was very apparent that the owners put a great deal of thought into creating ambiance inside the cabin and the way it was laid out gave it a very warm and cozy feeling. The property is located slightly out of town but yet close enough to enjoy Red River and all it has to offer. Looking forward to spending more time there!
