Our Story

Riverside Meadows was built entirely by the owners, Fritz and Paula Allen, along with their daughter Sadi, and we would like to welcome you to our home! This is our primary residence and we will most likely be here for your stay, your private cabin will allow you as much privacy as you like and we will be available to help with any questions and/or problems that inevitably arise.

The idea for our log complex came from old-world Norway and a house we loved from Vail. The master and guest bedrooms are separated from the main house, creating privacy and great outdoor living spaces along the banks of the Rio Grande. Landscaped gardens and pathways leading to each building complete the private and secluded setting. The log complex was built almost entirely by us, starting with the cutting of the dovetail corners on the hand-hewn logs to installing the chinking. We would be happy to share our experiences and knowledge with those interested in building their own log cabin. You would be surprised how easy it is if you are willing to take the time.

Guest Reviews

My wife and I took my two kids and my parents for a ski trip; Riverside Meadows was the perfect place to call "home" during our vacation. The cabins are modern and very clean -- like new. We will return for a summer vacation and enjoy the Rio Grande river more.

My wife and I and our baby enjoyed 5 days at one of the cabins and couldn't have been happier. The cabins were clean and seemed to be very new. The property owner went above and beyond to be accomodating to our needs and never missed an opportunity to ask if we needed anything more. The cabin was right on the river which lulled us to sleep every evening and made it hard to leave. Would definitely recommend these cabins and we hope to be back soon.

Fritz and Paula have created a wonderful place to rest and renew. It far exceeded my expectations in beauty of site, friendliness and helpfulness of hosts, cleanliness and any other category I can think of. We stayed in the studio and brought our 2 dogs while our friends stayed in one of the cabins. We all agreed that we had such a nice time that we plan to go back. With the river running right next to the property, it made the 'trip' to go fishing extremely easy. Just walk a few steps to the bank of the river and there you are! An especially nice aspect of the stay was the great time we had at the fire ring at night. We met wonderful and interesting people and had an excellent time. Thanks Paula and Fritz. We look forward to coming again.

Had a Great time!! Took our 5 children here for a short vacation. Fritz and Paula were very helpful and informative on the area and which places were good to hike. They know the area very well and can help you find whatever you are looking for. The trip down the river on the kayaks and raft was the highlight for all of us. The cabins were very nice with everything you could need available.
