This was our first visit to Colorado. Our flight was 2 hrs delayed but we made it to Glacier Lodge & the first thing we saw was a welcome sign at the front office with our name and hometown! A nice personal touch that instantly made us feel welcome. Our stay coincided with a complimentary cowpoke breakfast on Thursdays that was prepared by the Ranglos family & staff. It was just what we needed for our day of hiking. The Ranglos' dog Buddy paid us a visit several times. We booked our stay last minute and the last cabin left was the Arapahoe -- one bedroom with trundle bed in living rm. It was simple, clean and cozy for my husband & me and our two college-aged daughters. The kitchen and bathroom were tiny but we made do. Nice camp feel complete with rambling river, horse corral, outdoor campfires, swimming pool, kids running around and an occasional dog bark. Good location -- felt peaceful but close to Estes town as well as park entrance.
