Sleep to the sound of the Big Thompson River just outside your door!
The CASA RIO VISTA is a beautifully appointed and decorated 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home is located right on the Big Thompson River in a quiet private, gated community, Blue Spruce Village. The Big Thompson runs just a few feet away from the back deck. Enjoy your morning coffee or happy hour drinks listening to the rushing river from your wrap around, spacious deck. Open the windows and hear the river all day and night! We stock the river with rainbow trout every 2 weeks around late June to late Aug.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, a bay window overlooking the river and a recently renovated bath. The second master has its own bath and a queen size bed. The third bedroom (a new addition to the home)can be a children's retreat....a built in bunk bed...queen on bottom and XL twin on top. This bedroom also has its own bath. Bedrooms are all upstairs. The downstairs leather sofa opens to a queen size bed.
This home has it all. The kitchen is fully equipped with top quality dishware, cookware and utensils. Outside you'll find a Weber gas grill. The living area has a TV/DVR/stereo, DVD library and games. Our home also has WIFI internet access.
Blue Spruce Village is approximately 5 minutes outside Estes Park and two miles from the entrance to the specular Rocky Mountain National Park. Only one quarter mile from the original entrance to the park, you can walk to a park trail that leads to beautiful Moraine Park. You won't be disappointed!
Here are former guest comments:
'We had such a wonderful time here at Casa Rio Vista! Thanks for such a beautifully decorated and comfortable place for us to spend our vacation. Our kids were calling it 'home' after our first night.' G.S., McKinney Texas
'Most of all, your beautiful home made our 15 hour drive so worth it. We definately plan on coming again and recommending your home for a guaranteed pleasurable stay.' D. G., Ft Worth, Texas
'Thank you for such lovely accommodations. Our windows and doors were always open to hear the rushing waters.' J.W., Omaha Neb.
'What a magical retreat you have here! We still can't get over the fact that just outside the back door is such a wild, beautiful piece of nature in the river. We have spent countless hours sitting on the porch gazing at it, listening to it from our bedrooms and fishing in it (Chloe caught a trout!). It's an amazement we can't get over.' T.S., Austin, Texas

About Deb Brand
We purchased this home after visiting Blue Spruce Village for 8 years. We just love having our coffee in the cool crisp mornings while watching the kids feed the fish and chipmunks that visit the area. In July 2013 we purchased another BSV home unit #2 'Pinehenge' just a few doors down. Take a look VRBO #484296.
Deb Brand purchased this House in 2006
Why Deb Brand chose Estes Park
We really strive to have all the comforts of home. We supply coffee, laundry soap, dish soap and many general essentials for cooking. Have your ever been on vacation cooking a meal that needs only 2-3 Tbs of Olive Oil? You just can't believe you have to buy a $8-10 bottle at the local grocery store for a messily 2 Tbs? ... Well we have you covered!

Home was very nice and great location!
We had a great time during our visit in September! Location of this home is great since it’s near an entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park that has access to some of the most beautiful trails! Excellent restaurants nearby too (Smokin Dave’s and Rock Inn). The sound of the river running by the house was very relaxing and the house was comfortable, clean, quiet with plenty of room. Hope to come back again!!
Thanks for taking time to leave this great review! Hope you got to do lots of hiking, rafting and other great things with your kids!
I'ts always fun making new memories with our adult kids!
Look forward to your return!! Make each day count until we see you again!

Mountain Paradise Found
Amazingly beautiful place to stay. We were not wanting to leave. The river offers the perfect sounds for relaxing, amazing views of the local wildlife, I've named the chipmunk Chadwick and wanted to bring him home, and the location couldn't have been easier to enjoy downtown Estes Park. Highly recommend if you are looking for a Mountain Paradise, and working with Donna (owner) has been a joy over the past months of planning. Amenities are fantastic, rooms were very clean and very comfortable. Our group is already planning for next September, hoping Chadwick is still there!!
It was great to welcome you and your friends back again this year! Gosh I hope Chadwick sticks around for your next visit!! I only wish we were the owner!! We only manage it for great owners from Tx.
Be sure to make your reservation before we close this year...Oct. 15th and you will get this years price!
Make each day count until we see you again!

Property is well maintained!
Thanks Mary Ann,
Look forward to your return next month!
Peaceful Home, Great Location
This house provided everything our group of six needed. The kitchen was well stocked, the furnishings were comfortable. Sleeping with the windows cracked open and hearing the river was a special treat! The location is really wonderful for accessing some of the most popular RMNP hikes while avoiding the Estes Park traffic. Great property!
It was great to hear how much you enjoyed Casa Rio with your family and friends!
It is truly wonderful hearing the river sound lull you to sleep at night. Also, our guests love getting to the park with out the traffic!!
We look forward to your return! Make each day count!
Donna & Lloyd
We enjoyed this cozy, charming house. The location was perfect to relax on the back porch and listen to the river with the benefit of being so close to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Thanks for your post....can't wait for your return!
Fly fishing - private portion of river that is stocked with trout annually
