My son and I recently stayed at Glacier Lodge for two nights and absolutely loved it. We stayed in "The Loft" and it was perfect size for the two of us. It had a gorgeous mountain view and we fell asleep listening to the Big Thompson rush past every night. There was a cozy deck where we could sit outside... More

We stayed here for a full week, our first time, in mid July. The location is fantastic, just outside of RMNP, and the cabins were just what we were looking for. Not too fancy with just the right amenities. Staff were great and helpful - it's a family run and owned business and is well looked after. A really special... More

This is our 5th time to stay at Glacier Lodge, and we love it more each time! The grounds are beautiful, with cabins, many of them with the Big Thompson River flowing in front of them, accommodating couples, families, and even large groups! There is a stable located there, along with a heated pool, playground, several firepits, a soda shop,... More

Great hospitality, awesome cabins, great activities for all ages, close to RMNP, close to town, and privacy or socializing either way. Been there for last 25 years. Would go no where else. We tried other resorts but none compared. Colorados best kept secret. Ssssshhhhhhh! don't tell anybody! Can't wait to get back! Home away from home........

We stayed here recently for the second time and we loved every minute of it. The staff is super friendly, the owners are wonderful, and everything was just great. Our cabin was right along the river and hearing the rushing water 24/7 was an incredible experience. If you are looking for a well kept cabin that is very close to... More

We got so lucky booking this amazing cabin. We stayed in the Wildwood cabin that was directly on the river. The gentle sound of the river right outside your door was incredibly relaxing. There is so much to do on the spacious property, like basketball, tether ball, volleyball, ping pong, and more. If it's raining the office has all kinds... More

We stayed at Glacier Lodge for our first time and plan to return next summer! The cabin was clean and updated. The grounds were well kept with a variety of activities to choose from. There are "special events" that bring all the vacationers together such as a pancake breakfast, ice cream social, etc. Our kids loved meeting other kids and... More

Have been to Glacier Lodge multiple times for the last 20 years, most recent in Timber Lodge for a large reunion which was perfect. The Cabins and Lodges are a bit rustic, but have everything you need, and it's really about enjoying the great outdoors in the Rocky Mountain National/Estes Park area anyway. Majority of your time will be spend... More

3 of us stayed over the 4th of July weekend in Woodbridge cabin. This cabin was a duplex with 2 bedroom on the river. It was a great little cabin for us. We did not hear much of the neighbors sharing the duplex. Cabin: has 1 room with queen and 1 room with 2 twins. Has a fireplace which we... More

I chose Glacier Lodge from Trip Advisor and it turned out to be an excellent choice. It's convenient, just outside of town but close, well kept, helpful staff, and very clean. We stayed in the Flattop cabin which was nice, but located right next to the horses. The smell of the horse corral wasn't too bad, we just shut the... More
