So we had booked our wedding at Mary's Lake Lodge. Due to flooding in the area we were in a panic on what to do because they could no longer accommodate us. Mary's Lake did an excellent job in setting us up with the Historic Crags Lodge. We had not originally looked here because it was a bit out of our price range but it is a very beautiful location overlooking Estes Park and Lumpy Ridge to the north. The rustic setting was just as good as Mary's Lake and they were able to accommodate us at the same price so we didn't have to worry about coming up with extra money.
While I was really impressed with the organization and helpfulness of the staff for our event, given the short notice, the rooms are fairly nice as well. Keeping in mind that you can't do major remodeling without removing the historical nature of the building I think they've done well in maintaining that while keeping the rooms modern and comfortable.
Generally rustic suggests run down but here it seems that they are able to keep the rustic look but everything is well maintained. The staff were amazingly helpful and everything ended up working out for the best.

Breathtaking mountain views surround you making this the prefect location for your mountain wedding.The landscape of Rocky Mountain National Park is the steepest in the United States. Sixty mountain peaks over 12,000 feet high result in world-renown scenery and provide challenges for hikers and climbers.
