This year marked the 10th consecutive year our family has stayed at Glacier Lodge. The Ranglos family and staff are simply the best. From the moment we arrived to our departing day, we felt so welcome! Glacier Lodge is a very special place. There is something for everyone to do. Exploring, swimming, games or just relaxing by the river they... More

Just got back from a week at Glacier Lodge. Very good place for families, kids, larger groups. We had a two bedroom by the river and enjoyed. My son enjoyed using the basketball court, found some boys around his age to play with 3 days in a row. Very close to the RMNP entrance, we did four different days in... More

Our daughter who had visited Glacier Lodge a couple of times with her family suggested It as a place for our family gathering. We all (39 of us from 6 months to 83) had a great time. Timber Lodge has a fantastic great room that accommodated us all for meals, games, visiting! Plenty of activities on and off the property... More

We just loved our family gathering at the Glacier Lodge! This is our third time for a reunion there! First time was in 1987, then 1997, and now June 2014! We just love this place! The Ranglos family are so very special! Dave's parents, Jim & Penny, started the tradition and now he and Karen are continuing to make this... More

We stayed in the Deer Ridge cabin. Perfect space for our family of 4 to spread out. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the picnic table and chairs on the front porch. Couldn't ask for a better location near RMNP and the shopping in Estes. Kids loved outdoor activities, horseback riding, fishing the Big Thompson and reading books... More

We love Glacier Lodge. A condo just wouldn't be Colorado to us, but Glacier Lodge sure is. We love the cabins with porches on the Big Thompson River. The property is beautiful. I love the cool crisp mornings walking the property with my coffee. The Cowboy Breakfast every Thursday is not to be missed, we schedule our stay so that... More

We decided to stay at Glacier Lodge based upon the reviews from other travelers who rated them on TA. We were very, very happy with Glacier Lodge. We found that Dave and his family have owned and operated the property for 40 years. They really make you feel like part of their extended family. They have approximately 65% of their... More

So glad to have you on property. All of our units offer a bit different floor plan all are unique in character and charm. Half the fun is trying a few different units until you find just the one you are looking for. Please keep us in mind for a return visit! Thanks again! Dave Ranglos More

Best place for family lodging! Reasonable cost. Lots of fun on-property activities. Comfortable rustic lodging, but modern amenities. Close to Rocky Mtn Park, but quiet property. Attentive, gracious hosts. Our favorite place for past 8 yrs! Why go anywhere else?!

We stayed at Glacier Lodge for our first time last week. It is a very family friendly place and the Ranglos family are very hospitable and run a very well kept place. I would recommend this to anyone but especially for families with children/teens because there is plenty to do on site such as: swimming pool, ping pong, basketball hoop,... More

We have been coming to Glacier Lodge for the past 46 years. The Vokels owned it and when they retired they sold it to the Ranglos family! David and his wife Karen took over the business of running Glacier when both of David's parents died within months of each other. This year is their 40th anniversary of running this exceptional...
