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.
