My husband and I stayed at the Elkhorn Lodge during our honeymoon, and we fell in love with the place! It is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay with a lot of character and very friendly staff. The staff was always friendly and happy to recommend nice restaurants and advice us on nice Rocky Mountain routes.
Looking through the reviews, I realize that the Elkhorn Lodge is not a place everybody would enjoy. If you care for a super luxurious place, the Elkhorn Lodge would probably not be your choice. But if you enjoy a historic, quiet, friendly space with a lot of character, this is your place. If you find yourself in Estes Park, just visit it and see for yourself. We can't wait to get back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Elkhorn Lodge is the oldest continuous operating lodge in the Rocky Mountain region and is the most historical property in Estes park. Dating to 1874 when Reverend McCreary from Ft. Collins built a small summer cabin on what was to become the Elkhorn property, to today's struggles to save and restore this jewel of the West, the Elkhorn Lodge has been and continues to be a major part of Estes Park. With a fully functioning main lodge, cabins galore, and several spacious buildings for large parties, there's accommodations for any and all at the Elkhorn Lodge and Ranch. And Don't forget about the horseback riding! ... more less
