Yippie! Spring is here! At least we hope so. The mounds of snow are diminishing daily although we will probably have additional snowfall during April. The snow this time of year usually comes in big fluffy flakes that melt quickly. The hint of Spring is everywhere, days are warmer, the chipmunks are scurrying about the lodge competing with the wild turkeys for birdseed that has been kicked out of the feeders by the birds. Elk are wandering about and the Big Horn sheep were out in the road yesterday. Do come join us as winter gives way to Spring! Can Summer be far behind?

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
