Castle Mountain Lodge in Estes Park, CO


We are a mountain resort with cabins, suites and vacation homes located on the border of Rocky Mountain National Park.  Open all year.


Established in 1955.

We have owned and operated this business since 1983.  The original buildings were developed by a famous Russian architect named Igor Polevitzky. All units have been remodeled and updated while keeping the mountain cabin charm as originally constructed. Some units have private hot tubs, most have full kitchens and wood burning fireplaces.

We arrived at this place after dark, and we left first thing in the morning. So we barely got to know this place, but it sure seemed great. It was expensive, but every place in Estes Park is the same way. You get what you pay for. It's in a great location, on the road that goes into Rocky Mountain National Park. Fall River is just across the road and a mountain shoots up directly behind that. I'm sure there was other neat stuff on the grounds. I'm also sure that you'll be visited by some Rocky Mountain elk or bears if you stand outside long enough. Fine rooms, great location, moderately priced. If you just need a place to sleep near the park, this must be the place.

A little unprepossessing in appearence (though the grounds are nice), but we found our two bedroom cabin to be very clean and comfortable, with a well-stocked kitchenette and unusually good beds.

I really wanted to like this place because it's in such a cool location next to the mountains and the owner is very nice.. but the room had no a/c and hadn't been renovated in a long time.  I appreciate the cool air being from texas but it doesn't justify staying here a 2nd time w/o ac.

We were only staying one night, so we stayed in one of the rooms. It was perfect. Small, but very comfortable with plenty of room, very quiet, comfortable beds and a little porch we could sit out on. The rooms were exceptionally clean and updated, but still have the wonderful cabin feel. The entire staff was friendly and helpfull and the setting was great. You are right off the river, plenty of trees and we even had Wild Turkeys wondering on the lawn. We will definitely go back.

I stayed here 5 years ago so when I had an opportunity to come back toEstes park there was no place I would rather have stayed. In April this town is quiet and I love it.  We had some snow a couple of nights whole there.  This cabin has a fireplace and a private hot tub....so amazing.  When I go back to EP I WILL stay here again.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights around the third week in oct.  We stayed in castle 3 which is one of their rooms.  It had 2 queen beds and joined to another room that was identical.  The guest in that room were friends of ours and we did open the doors between the rooms the last day we were there.  We were staying there with basically an entire wedding party, that included basically all the friends and family from all over the country and Brazil.  The wedding had been planned for over a year and everything booked at a different lodge, Mary's Lake but the Boulder flood and gvt shutdown changed everything.  We were fortunate that Castle Mountain and a neighboring lodge were able to take care of all of us on such short notice.  Our room was made to look like a cabin and did have that feel.  They are perched on the rocks.  The view out the back window is rocks and trees marching straight up and the turkey trail is there also.  I liked to wake up early in the morning and watch them come down to the main area to the bird feeder.  They are accustomed to people and seem not to mind being photographed.  The flock was between 15-20 birds while we were there.  If you have pets you need to leash them because some dogs find turkey poo attractive.  The grounds people keep the area very clean.   We had snow while we were there and the stairs were sanded and then swept clean again when it was gone.  Firewood is brought daily to the cabins with fireplaces.  Lots of places outdoors with grills and places for a campfire.  I did not get a chance to inspect the hot tub area but I know they did have one available.  I did visit one of the cabins that had its own fireplace and hot tub and it was very nice.  The hot tub was ok for 3.   All the accommodations seemed to have parking at the door.  When you arrive you cross the covered bridge over the trout stream and the first cabin is a full size house.  The grooms family had this cabin and it had at least 3 bedrooms, large dining room, kitchen and living room.   We would often have gatherings there for breakfast or coffee and dessert and had 15-20 people or more.  Our room had wifi, TV , a fan, coffee & coffee pot, microwave and little fridge.  Cabins with kitchen areas seemed well supplied.  The lodge office had a large gathering area with a fireplace and seating + info about area attractions.  This is a perfect place to stay if visiting the national park.  Be advised.  The park opens on Memorial Day and closes mid oct.  We went for the afternoon but you are unable to drive the main upper parts of the park.  We did enjoy the lower area, gift shop and saw a herd of elk at the entrance.  We hope to return to castle lodge when the park is open.  Persons with mobility issues need to ask about which cabins work best.  The castle rooms require climbing some stairs.

We have been here more times than I  can count.  It is a great place to retreat to after hiking and picnics. We love the personal hot tub!
Already planning next years trip back.

The best bang for your buck in estes park by far!! Clean rooms, so peaceful, romantic and the staff was nothing short of amazing. Yesterday we were sad to see this place was sold out and tried to stay at another place with 4 stars in Estes and ending up leaving early. This place is AWESOME and whoever got to stay their tonight makes me jealous.
