I researched a place to stay around Estes Park for weeks, and finally decided upon Glacier Lodge. We were not disappointed! The staff was friendly, our cabin was clean, comfortable and bug-free (a first for us when staying in cabins anywhere). The grounds were well kept and the pool very clean, although we did not use it. We stayed in the 2-bedroom Wanamingo cabin which we chose because the deck is literally right over the river. It is also in a very quiet area. We chose the week following Labor Day so it would be a quiet, relaxing vacation, which it was. If we took our family during the summer months, there are wonderful planned activities for kids and I know our grandchildren would love the playground, stables, etc. Highly recommend. We also made a mistake on our date of departure - we ended up leaving a day early to get home for a grandson's first birthday party, and fully expected to pay for the extra night. However, when we checked out, Mr. Ranglos did not charge us for that night, even though it was definitely our fault that we did not inform him ahead of time that our plans had changed. I would definitely recommend this as a family destination in the summer, or a quiet getaway after Labor Day. Weather was perfect. We hope to return!
