Firstly, we are a military family and traveled via the Military Getaway package. For $159, we were able to stay for 2 nights in any lodge room, have all meals paid for and use all the facilities. GREAT value. The staff is exceptional, and I really have to thank everyone for their fine work. We had folks stop us and... More

My daughter and I drove to the YMCA of the Rockies from our home in Texas to spend a few days over spring break. I had been to the Estes Park Center once before about 10 years ago, and really enjoyed its location, attitude, and amenities, which at the time were rustic but not primitive. This trip, I reserved a... More

I attended a retreat held in one of the Dannen retreat/family union "cabins." It was a gorgeous, lodge-like setting: bright, airy, modern--and its 8 bedrooms could sleep 16 to 32 people. There aren't TVs or phones in the rooms, which are modest but comfy, but the public areas (on two levels) were superb. We sat on sofas and stuffed chairs... More

My friend and I recently spent 8 days on this campus. The scenery was literally breathtaking and the staff was always engaging and wonderful to deal with. It was clean and well maintained. We had a couple of small maintenance glitches, but they were dealt with right away. The food service was pretty disappointing, but you can remedy that easily... More

Some friends and I stayed at the YMCA of the Rockies as a cheap alternative to hotels in the area. The accommodations were as expected in a mountain lodge (i.e. fireplaces, rocking chairs and no tvs). I'd definitely recommend going there if you're looking to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park as the property is adjacent to the park. The... More

We rented a cabin here with another couple for a reasonable price. It was very beautiful and peaceful, and the cabin was recently updated. There are many activities available and great food at the main buildings. They have firepits for rent at night - definitely take advantage! The wildlife here is beautiful and they have some great trails on the... More

My fiancee and I stayed here to review properties in Estes park for our wedding and were surprised (though we shouldn't have been) to find that this property is bustling over the summer with teen/pre-teen groups...go figure. The prices on the cabin's weren't astronomical, but weren't cheap. They have a curfew that is surprisingly early (10pm I believe) and they... More

Nestled in the heart of the majestic Rocky Mountains is a real hellhole. Having had enough time to recover from the miserable week I spent at YMCA of the Rockies, I can finally post my review. I stayed here in June 2014 as a chaperone for a church youth convention. We applied for the most affordable accommodations, which turned out... More

Stopped by and played a couple rounds of disc golf while on vacation. Beautiful place with a panorama of great views. Day passes are reasonably priced. Looks like a decent place to stay with a lot of activities. Had some of our closest encounters with wildlife during our rounds. Would go back anytime.

We live in Colorado at 9,200', so it takes an exceptional place to fulfill our expectations of solitude , beauty, and an escape. The Estes Park Center of YMCA of the Rockies was perfect. We wanted snow, we had it. We hoped for trackless powder for x-country skiing, we found it. We expected sparkly clean, facilities, and were delighted! We... More
