We have stayed here 3 times now. We have always had a wonderful time and the staff, especially Susan are so great. She makes you feel so welcomed. This time we got serenaded by Brat the resident bull Elk (massive antlers!) right in front of our cabin. As he was grazing other Elk in the area were bugling and he... More

Thanks so much for your wonderful and kind remarks. Brat is certainly quite the celebrity here around McGregor Mountain Lodge...and now even town of Estes Park AND across the country. We love that all of you can come and share in his majestic beauty and can first hand witness these animals right from the comfort of your very own cabin.... More

We called McGregor Mountain Lodge after some unfortunate circumstances occurred concerning our accommodations at YMCA of the Rockies (where we had reservations for the week). McGregor Mountain Lodge was busy, but still managed to accommodate us! We were able to transfer over to McGregor for the remaining six days of our vacation. Unbeknownst to us, we booked one of the...

In December 2013, my husband and I got married on Sprague Lake in RMNP and we stayed here for our 5 day trip. It was the first time I had ever been here and we had the most amazing experience.

My boyfriend and I spent a romantic week at this quaint local lodge in Columbine #5 cottage. From our arrival we were greeted by friendly staff to assist with all of our questions.

My mother, sister and I recently spent a week at the McGregor Mountain Lodge in Estes Park. We were there from August 16 - 22. I believe it's a family-run business. My mother and sister are from Iowa, and I moved to Colorado 30 years ago. We wanted to re-live childhood memories. I had been to EP many times but... More

We truly enjoyed staying here for our week in Estes Park. It was cozy, clean and so peaceful. The location was great, we were only a few miles from RMNP entrance and only a few miles from town. This is where we will stay when we come back again!

My wife and I stayed at McGregor Mountain Lodge for 3 days on our August vacation. We wanted to stay someplace outside of the town area, someplace more remote. McGregor is about 4 miles out of town toward Rocky Mountain National Park. Close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough away to be more private. Our stay was... More

My wife and I have spent a total of 20 days at McGregor in the last 3 years. It has never failed to impress. The staff is wonderful, rooms spotless, and the full kitchen is a real money saver.

Stephen, Thanks so much for your review! We certainly appreciate your loyalty to McGregor as well. It feels like fall (maybe even a bit of winter in the air) today as the peaks are socked in and I'm just waiting for the sun to come out and reveal the snow on top! At least, I'm guessing it will do that.... More
