The Historic Crags Lodge is ideally located in the heart of Estes Park on the north side of Prospect Mountain and only 3 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park. The "Crags" first opened its doors on the fourth of July 1914, making it the third oldest lodge in Estes Park. The founder, Joe Mills and his brother Enos, played a large part in establishing The Rocky Mountain National Park.

Estes Park is known as The Gateway to The Rockies, which is teeming with elk, deer, bighorn sheep, black bear and much more. It is full of culture with plenty of shopping and fun festivals that celebrate each season.

The Historic Crags Lodge is everything you would imagine in a quiet Colorado retreat. Discover The Historic Crags Lodge and become a part of an ongoing family history that began nearly 100 years ago.

This place is gorgeous just like the pictures with such a homey warm feel and extremely kind staff.

  • 5 of 5

I was worried because the price was so great (thought maybe some pictures looked nicer than they would be in person) but it was gorgeous. I got the smallest room available and it's perfect if you want something nice and comfortable and relaxing but not extravagant either. Much more beautiful and nice than any chain hotel room but the room was small like a cute little cottage room. Plenty of room, kitchen with stove, kettle, coffeemaker, toaster, microwave, cookwear, and plates and silverware, good sized bathroom with heat lamps in the ceiling (heaven), good sized couch big bed tv and a door to a gorgeous stone balcony. Plenty of room and even more amenities than a hotel room, just not extra blank floor space, so you get an amazing price. The bigger rooms would have more space if you need it! Fireplaces, tons of places to sit, never crowded, so friendly and peaceful and beautiful views out every window, and quiet people in general (although no one minded us loud folks). Just a great place. It's the first place I ever stayed in Estes Park and I'd never stay anywhere else. Was nicer to stay there than a shiny fancy expensive hotel room. If I was given $500 extra to spend on my vacation, I'd still stay at Crags Lodge and spend it on something else. Or stay longer. Wonderful place to stay!

Historic, classic mountain lodge

  • 5 of 5

If you love old, rustic and don't need everything granite and tile, check out this historic lodge.

Winter visit ..... great place to return to after a day of hiking and snowshoeing!

A couple big roaring fires, hot chocolate, hot tub, great views of Estes Park. Wonderful place to be cozy and hear the wind howling outside.

Excellent meal in the casual dining room. Games and books and videos available in the library.

Lovely front desk lady.

This is a lucky find!

Even though you're just on the outskirts of Estes, you have the feeling of being "away from it all"

Wonderful old lodge!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one night at Crag's Lodge in Estes Park. The lodge is located in a great mountainside spot overlooking the valley and mountains surrounding it. Front desk was knowledgable and helpful. In our one evening there we saw plenty of elk and had a great meal. The room was simple and comfortable. A very pleasant place to stay!

Accommodations meant to be in the mountains, beautiful lodge!

  • 4 of 5

Service was amazing from the start, very accommodating. Heated pool was a hit for our family. Grounds and room clean and well kept. We were placed in a studio on the ground floor with a back patio. The main complaint I have about this locatin is there are about 5 rooms in this hall that are below the lodges restaurant, and with the wood floors and age of this lodge it was very noisy from 7-10pm. We had our 3 year old with us, which means an early bedtime and this noise was an inconvenience. Otherwise recommend checking this place out.

Estes Park Crags Lodge

  • 4 of 5

All the staff was pleasant, friendly and went out of their way to assist with any needs or questions. The first day the desk clerk gave really good restaurant recommendations. None missed the mark. Although you have to eat one night in the lodge, The View. Close to downtown Estes and the park. It is walk-able to downtown if you do no mind the hill back up to the lodge. Really enjoyed our stay.
