5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

Just spent 7 days in a cottage- absolutely amazing! So close to RMNP - the hiking is fabulous - (The Loch was our favourite ) and yet so easy to get to Estes Park for food/restaurants. Cottage was lovely- comfy bed, romantic log fire, large bathroom, had breakfast and dinner outside looking at the mountains and watching the "critters"- the hummingbirds were awesome. We really loved it here -we hope to go back one day real soon.

We were originally booked at another cabin resort and as luck would have it, it wasn't ready for us to use on the dates we needed. We were lucky enough to be referred to this place at the last minute, and what a treat it was!! Very friendly, professional service. They had every thing you needed and then some. The scenery and privacy was worth the price alone. The cabins were very clean and relaxing. We will go back with more of our family for sure. What a piece of heaven in the mountains they have. Thank You for a Wonderful vacation retreat.

Room Tip: Room # 6 has a fabulous view of the mountain right in front of it. Apparently several cabins are do...

We stayed in Columbine Cabin #4 for four nights. I'm so glad we stumbled onto this property! First, the staff was excellent. Susan greeted us - she knew who we were when we walked in the door (I'm guessing our baby gave it away. I had told them we had an infant when I called and booked the room). She made us feel special. Then, she told us all the details about getting more firewood (they bring a new bundle everyday if you use it) and how to avoid delays in traffic and around RMNP.

Each cabin has its own parking spot behind that way your car doesn't block the view. Just know that your cabin does face Highway 36(?) but it is obscured by trees. You can still hear the traffic during the day, but it dies down at night to almost nothing.

Our cabin was clean and comfortable. The bedroom is small with no extra storage. There is a dresser in there but it is filled with extra blankets. The bed itself was comfortable. The bathroom is a good size with a whirlpool tub that was nice after a long hike in the park. We didn't use the stove or oven, but the coffee pot and microwave were just like at home! No hotel sizes here. There is no air conditioning but it's not necessary. We left our windows open all day and closed some of them at night because it got a little chilly.

We enjoyed our porch where chipmunks hovered under the bird feeder waiting for the birds to drop some seeds. And we loved the relaxed, family atmosphere. The McGregor Mountain Lodge is location just about a half mile from one of the entrances to the RMNP or you can walk into the park from the back of the property. Nice!

Room Tip: We enjoyed Columbine Cabin #4, but it is in the middle of a row of cabins. Cabin #3 is on the end of...

Stayed for 5 days at the end of July. This property is well thought/laid out. You park behind your cottage and out your front door are the Rocky Mountains. The bird feeders in front of your picture window are filled daily and in turn you can't imagine the number of birds and chipmunks. I have never seen so many humming birds....and have never seen them dive bomb each like they do there. A black bear walked in front of our cottage yesterday on his way up the mountain. Pretty amazing to say the least. The cottages have everything you need except a washer and dryer. None on the property but this won't stop me coming back. I'll just bring extra underwear and socks next time. They accept pets.

The mattresses are on the soft side so I'll ask the front desk to hook me up next time.

Cottages are about three miles from downtown Estes Park and within two miles to the of Rocky Mountain N.P.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

We just got back from our 5th stay at McGregor and it was amazing again. It is a great place to stay. It has everything nature can offer - wildlife galore, amazing views and the peace of being in the mountains. We were in 11A this time - we usually stay in 16. What an amazing room! It was the nicest place we have ever stayed at. The view from our beds was the Continental Divide. It was unbelievable!! We LOVE the mountains! The rooms, as always, are clean and you feel like you are home away from home. The staff are amazing also. They treat you like friends or family, not a stranger. They always remember us - again you feel like you are home away from home. There are always cookies and coffee or apple cider for you in the office, also some nice conversation with Susan, Michael or Chris. You are literally 3 min away from the Fall River Entrance to RMNP, which is great because you avoid going through downtown Estes Park which can be crowded. McGregor gives us the peace and serenity from nature that we so need in our lives. We very much missed Daisy this year. She was such an amazing dog and is so missed by us. It was a little sad not having her wake us up in the morning this year. We did enjoy the company of Alex and Tanner! You can't go wrong staying here at McGregor. We will be back again and again!

This place has great staff, awesome views, and is very close to one of the entrances to the park. Basically a full kitchen (miniature appliances) and a place outside to grill. We went on a 3 week road trip and they had the best bed of anywhere we stayed.

My wife and I visit Estes park often. Always trying out different hotels and lodges for our birthdays, anniversary, etc. This weekend was her birthday and she mentioned wanting to try out the McGregor Mountain lodge. They were very accomodating with our last minute reservation. we got the off peak rates which are good.
We woke up this morning to a wonderful view and wildlife right out our window. At one point there were two elk 3 feet from our window, a woodpecker, several chipmunks, squirrels and lots of different birds. As my wife loves taking wildlife pictures, this made it very easy.
They have wood burning fire places that they give you a free bundle to burn a day which really allowed me to set her a romantic birthday mood. Especially when it started snowing:)
Some of my favorite spots in Estes have been on the river or lakes but the McGregor will now make that list for my favorite off water location.

Room Tip: They do have a few rooms that are pet friendly which makes it easy for us as we occasionally travel...
