Property description

Glacier lodge is a privately owned 20 acre guest ranch located adjacent to Roosevelt National Forest, and 1.5 miles from the Beaver Meadows entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. The National Park headquarters and backcountry office are even closer. Glacier Lodge is conveniently located 3.5 miles from the town center of Estes Park, Colorado.

Visit us online for information on all our units.

The "Ranch" consists of 30 rustic, well maintained Western-decor units of various sizes, able to sleep two to eight persons, and four large lodges capable of accommodating groups and family reunions up to 30 people.

The units are nestled under towering pines on the banks of the rushing Big Thompson river, with mountains on all sides. At 7,800 feet, the elevation provides cool evenings that invite you to use your fireplace, but the sunny days of summer are hot enough to make the swimming pool inviting.

The Experience...
Glacier Lodge provides many of the amenities of a true Colorado dude ranch, without charging the high prices typical of such horse-centered resorts. It is a good alternative, and a bargain, if your interest in horses is occasional rather than constant. You pay for riding by the hour, and you buy or cook your own meals, unlike the dude ranch deals where horse, housing and gub three times a day come pre package in a very expensive bundle.

Send us an email for complete information on all our units or call for availablity and pricing.

Morain House: 3 bedroom, 3 bath luxury vacation home overlooking the Big Thompson River. Max occupancy is 8 persons. Upstairs master with king and private bath, second bedroom with a queen and shared bath. Third bedroom downstairs has two doubles. Common area has a full bath and laundry room. Large great room with fireplace, den with tv, sun room sitting area, and loft. Full length covered porch overlooking the river, with gas grill.
