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.
In town there is go-carting, tubing summer and winter, ski lift runs summer and winter, horseback riding, an art gallery, library, tandem bikes, 4-wheeling, 'shoot-out' at Frye's old town, activities and festivals in the community park, playground for children, free fishing lake for the children, indoor game house, restaurants, full grocery store, and more
