We have stayed at Glacier Lodge six times over ten years and have found it to be an excellent value. We have enjoyed every stay and never been disappointed. Our stays have been restful, peaceful and relaxing. Glacier Lodge, located on the Big Thompson River west of Estes Park on CO 66 highway with easy access to RMNP, has nice...

Glacier Lodge in October, ... WOW! Dave makes everyone feel welcomed and special. The lodges are so clean and warm. We've gone in June, September and October, and everyone time it has been special. A Great Place to sit by the fire and relax.

I've stayed here several times with different family members and it is always a great experience. This is the favorite memory of every grandchild I've brought. We come in the fall for the aspen and the elk and usually have an elk one on one on the grounds. We've stayed in several different units and all were clean and comfortable...

We just keep coming back! Great experience for the kids. They have literally grown up coming here every year or two. My kids (and us adults) love the wood burning fireplaces, rustic and comfortable cabins, borrowing a movie from the reception cabin, or a game. Playing tetherball, ping pong and badminton. Games they thought were "new" to them but a...

Spring, summer or fall, Glacier Lodge is the best place to stay. Always comfortable, clean and affordable. Go single, as a couple, with friends; children always welcome. This was my 18th year to stay, this time for a family reunion. It was the perfect location! Buddy and the elk are always there to greet you and make you feel at...

This is my second time staying here and just like last time it was a wonderful experience. Everything you need is included and if you have a problem it is taken care of promptly. Really nice property that makes you feel so far from everything but in reality it's only a few miles from town and about a mile to...

Eight days of fun, rest, and conversation. This stay was the 23rd year staying at Glacier Lodge. We have never had problems of any kind and enjoy everything about the resort and RMNP as well as Estes Park. You can not go wrong with a stay at Glacier Lodge.

We have stayed at Glacier Lodge several times, at a different cabin each time. We've been very happy with every cabin we have stayed in - all have been exceptionally clean and well stocked with the essentials. The location is the best, close to town and the park entrance. The river right in front of the cabins is a great...

Beautiful spacious grounds with about 20 cabins, some single, others duplex or multiple. The property rises on a slope from the river along one side, with wide grassy areas, many big trees, and horse stables at the upper side of one end. During our September visit, a herd of elk dominated by a large bull ambled through every evening. Our...

Our group of 4 adults stayed here for a couple nights in early September while visiting Rocky Mountain NP. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and the location was great. The cabins were very clean and comfortable. We lucked out with warm weather and even got to do some swimming in the pool. Overall this is a great place...
