Very very nice...well kept place. Cabins were clean and modern. The grounds were beautiful The amenities were not really happening since the season ends like Aug 26th. It seems as though in Estes Park, the season ends on August 26 but I thought it should continue until aug 31st at least since some travelers aren't back in school until after...

We loved the stay with all our kids and grand kids. Everybody had a fabulous time between the Horseback ride, Kudos to Judea and Alyssa for that, the swimming pool and all of the fun games. The cabins were clean and comfortable, we needed a few more dishes for our hungry bunch. We have already told many friends and family...

Glacier Lodge is paradise on earth. Our cabins were so clean and beautiful and everyone took care of us like we were royalty. Not one request was too much. This is a place that has more to offer then anywhere we have stayed. Our 30th wedding anniversary was so special, we booked 8 days next year instead of 4 (that...

By far the best trip I have had with my family. Kids loved it more than Disney and that is from their own mouths. What a great property and a great family running it. Can't wait to go back next year. Stayed in the Aspen Glen for three nights and then was moved to the Lazy River for the 4th...

Our family stayed at Glacier Lodges for only two nights but we had such a wonderful time! Our cabin (Shoshone) was perfect for the three of us, it was so clean and very charming. There was tons for our son to do-- we went to the marshmallow roast, the ice cream social, went on a pony ride (onsite), went swimming...

We stayed 6 nights in one of the smaller units (Wildwood) and it couldn't have been more perfect. We have 2 kids (10, 7) and Glacier Lodge provided so many amenities for them to enjoy: ping-pong, basketball, badminton, the campfires, cowboy sing-along, and pool. On Thursday morning, GC provided a wonderfully delicious breakfast, that I bet we would have paid...

We stayed five nights in one of the chalets (Deer Ridge) and loved it. My two sons loved having their own twin beds in the loft. Most of our time was spent hiking and seeing the town, but we enjoyed our down time at Glacier Lodge. There were a ton of activities and best of all was the Big Thompson...

Awesome family-friendly lodge with top notch staff, in a beautiful location on the river, and easy access to Rocky Mnt National Park. I do not think 'no' is in their vocabulary!

Our family reunions have been held at Glacier Lodge every summer for the past 20 years. This is an incredible, family-run, lodge park with excellent service and great rates. From the largest to the smallest cabins, each one has it's own character and charm. The events, stables, and other amenities are also top notch. The Ranglos Family runs an amazing...
