All of the people working there were friendly and pleasant to work with. The atmosphere was family friendly in a beautiful location. The buildings were well maintained and very clean. Members of our party caught fish in the river, swam in the pool, and rode horses. It was a great stay and we hope to do it again.

This was a great, family fun location- the kids loved the s'mores campfire night, the cowboy breakfast, and the family friendly atmosphere. Beautiful scenery along the river and minutes to downtown Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park. The family feel and activities made this a fun, relaxing place to stay.

Found Glacier Lodge on the internet and booked based on reviews. Really enjoyed the few days we spent there. Well cared for property and great location, close to Rocky Mountain National Park. Peaceful and comfortable. Nice place to relax in the evening after a day of activities.

We loved the family oriented set-up. We had a 2 bed/1 bath cabin right on the river. It was charming and had everything we needed. They even supply firewood daily. We made a fire each morning! We visited from Georgia in July and the nights and mornings were cold to us-we were loving it! They are very close to Rocky... More

We were recommended to Glacier Lodge by a couple of people for our family vacation and we are so thankful! Wonderful hospitality, gorgeous scenery, comfortable cabin. Close to town, but had activities on the grounds too, so fun!

Glacier Lodge was our favorite lodging out of all of the places we stayed on our recent vacation. It was so nice to sit outside on the deck with coffee or to just relax. The sound of the rushing stream was peaceful. I loved that our kids could explore, and they loved having the pool which they enjoyed every night.... More

Our family stayed at Glacier Lodge a couple decades ago, creating sweet memories that lingered as the kids grew up. This year, we reunited in Estes, and the 4 Glacier Lodge cabins beside the Big Thompson River became the perfect backdrop for a great vacation. The whole experience.... the cow poke breakfast, horseback ride, sparkling swimming pool, the games and... More

This was our first visit to Colorado. Our flight was 2 hrs delayed but we made it to Glacier Lodge & the first thing we saw was a welcome sign at the front office with our name and hometown! A nice personal touch that instantly made us feel welcome. Our stay coincided with a complimentary cowpoke breakfast on Thursdays that... More

Friendly, nice location. More rustic than a condo so a nice Colorado, outdoorsy feel. Plenty of amenities. Super sweet outdoor breakfast once a week. Nice couple that owns it are very friendly. I would go back if not looking for the condo experience.
