This is our second time staying here. The first time (2014) we stayed in the Cedar Lodge Suite and this visit was the Ponderosa Cottage. Very friendly staff including the 4 legged staff members. This place is pet friendly (Ponderosa Cottage). Make sure to tell owner during reservations that you need a pet friendly room. Great views all around. The... More

My new husband and I have been to Estes Park every year since 2011, this being the first time staying at McGregor. I don't know what took us so long!

We stayed at McGregor Mountain Lodge for the second time. We had a 2 bedroom and 2 bath unit for 4 of us. It was very comfortable. The unit was clean and well maintained. The service was good.

I spent 5 days at McGregor. This location was great for spending most of my time in RMNP; was also close to Estes when I wanted to drive into town. The cabin (room) I stayed in was 11b, very comfortable for 1-2 people. Only suggestion I have is to add a couple TV trays or a small foldable table. I... More

This was our fortieth anniversary trip so we spent maybe a little more $$ than usual. This resort was well worth it. Our cabin (#5) was very nice.

We found this place via tripadvisor and are so glad that we did. Why the five stars? First it is quiet and restful yet still nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. Next, the cabin, while designed as a cabin and not a luxury hotel, was very clean and comfortable and adequately appointed. We actually liked the wood cabin feel of it.... More

One of our favorite places in the world. If you want to get away from it all and still have enough to do, this is a perfect place. Right next to the National Park for a gorgeous drive and photographers dream with beautiful wild life and great hiking trails. Clean rooms, amazing staff. We have got to go back soon!!!
