Glacier Lodge does not disappoint. Rustic yes, but good family and couples fun can not be beat! This year is 23 years with at least one visit and we do not plan to stop an annual week plus stay anytime soon. The stay is beginning to be a meeting of folks that schedule the same time year after year, join... More

Together with another couple we spent 4 nights in the Ponderosa cabin at Glacier Lodge. The cabin was spacious and had all the facilities that you need for self catering. The people at the reception desk were pleasant and helpful. Swimming pool surrounded by grassed areas provided space for relaxation. Cabins are given firewood daily for the inside fireplace. The...

We loved our stay at Glacier Lodge. We stayed in the River cabin, a one-bedroom with a foldout couch, small kitchen and a deck right on the Big Thompson River. The property is just beautiful and during the summer high season, there are many activities for families and children. Our cabin was spotless and the property location is quiet and... More

We booked the cabin called "Flattop". It was immaculate and had outstanding views. We missed the horseback riding season since it ended the week before we arrived, but we were more than entertained with squirrels, rabbits and elk in the front yard. The cabin had a fireplace and wood was furnished; a very nice and cozy touch in the cool... More

Location is a bit deceptive- right off a busy road. Cabin we were in for most of a week was very dated and needs some handyman work. (windows do not stay up, kitchen appliances and mattresses on par with what is in your local Goodwill, carpet needs good cleaning or replacing). Most irritating was the cool, almost nasty, conversation from... More

We stayed at the Kawuneeche Lodge for 3 nights while we explored RMNP & could not have been more pleased. The lodge was more than enough room for our group of 3 but still affordable. The lodge was well equipped for making our own meals & well maintained. One morning we awoke to a deer with her two fawns feeding... More

Glacier Lodge is comfortable and family friendly. Their rates are affordable. The cabins are nicely furnished and arranged for privacy. The Ranglos family and their staff are friendly and attentive to the needs of their guests. This was our 15th vacation to Estes Park and the past 11 times we have stayed here. We plan to return!

We stayed at this great lodge the first weekend in October, 2015 and it was great. We stayed in the Beaver Creek Cabin which was right on the river. If you are looking for a good base of operations to explore the park that is just enough out of town (Estes Park) to be away from the hustle and bustle... More

My wife and I took my parents to Estes Park to see some elk and enjoy the fall colors. We hoped to find a nice cabin on the Rocky Mountain National Park side of town. I found Glacier Lodge online and reserved the Hallet Peak cabin. I think it may be the best in the resort. After a great day... More

We have stayed at Glacier Lodge twice, and I reviewed it in 2013 as well. Love that it is spread out over several acres, cabins are of different styles and sizes, not all lined up along the river like a motel. We have booked a larger lodge next summer for our whole family, so much to do there, beautiful heated... More
