Winter is upon us! It's cold--17 below was reported in Estes last night. We usually have a couple of cold spells during the winter. This one seems a bit colder and lasting longer, 3 or 4 days, than normal. Yes it is a dry cold but still cold. However it is a beautiful sight! The trees are decked in fluffy white, Fall River is gurgling along under the bridge and around the snow covered boulders. So we keep the lobby fire crackling and a jigsaw puzzle on the table near the fire. The coffee is hot and it is time to enjoy our winter season. Come see for yourself!
Cross over Fall River on our Covered Bridge to the peaceful mountain vacation that awaits you. First, nestle into your cozy cabin, suite or room. Then take a walk or fish along the river, hike up our mountainside that leads into Rocky Mountain National Park, sit out on the deck or patio to spot the Elk, Deer, Wild Turkeys, chipmunks, Red Fox or feathered friends who visit us regularly. Lastly, relax in a hot tub, read by a crackling fire and then retire to the rippling waters of Fall River. Your magical experience begins now with a warm “Castle” welcome!
Did you ever wonder how a lodge like Castle Mountain Lodge came into being? You may be surprised to learn not only the original owners and developers, Igor and Irene Polevitzky, but subsequent owners Jim and Gerry Wenger, and current owner Warren (and his late wife Ruth) all started out by vacationing in Estes Park. Sound familiar? In 1947 Igor and Irene Polevitzky came to Estes Park for a vacation. They stayed at Voelkel’s Glacier Lodge, now known as Glacier Lodge. They fell in love with the Estes Park area, begin looking for land to buy, and the rest, as they say, is history
