In 2015 Rocky is 100 years old!  Just think of all the families who have enjoyed the park over those years.  Is yours one of them? If this is your first visit or one of many won’t you join us this year to celebrate the Rocky Mountain National Park!  The whole community is joining in the celebration.  If you have not made your reservation for your summer visit now is a good time to do so.  We look forward to welcoming you to join us.   The Big Horn sheep are down on the lodge and on the hillside across from our covered bridge.  That is a sure sign of Spring!  The vegetation greens up first on those sunny hillsides at the lower elevation and the sheep are eager for some fresh green grass after a winter of limited forage.  Come enjoy the Park with us!

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
