Right on the Big Thompson River, Glacier Lodge is a great place to experience Colorado. We stayed in Deer Ridge Cabin and enjoyed a mountain view out of the front picture window. The cabin was clean and accommodated our needs very well. Had a pleasant surprise on an early morning walk when I encountered a ten point elk eating leaves from a bush on the grounds which were well kept and beautiful. Went fishing in the Big Thompson and caught a trout but even without catching any fish, sitting by the rushing river would be a pleasant experience. Even the bridge to enter the property was quaint. Just a few minutes from downtown Estes Park, if you like to shop, yet felt like you were in the country.
