Warren Clinton - Owner Ruth Clinton

Ruth Clinton

1943 - 2009

2015 marks Warren’s 35th year in the lodging business in Estes Park.  Ruthie was his partner prior to her passing on in 2009. Warren brings a background in law, real estate development and home building, and banking.  Ruthie was in the computer field and an early advocate of  the internet.  Our company, eMarketing, LLC , which Ruthie ran enabled our lodges and the Estes Park community to be one of the early internet marketing proponents.  Ruthie's influence both at the lodge and in the Estes Park community are still much in evidence today.  Warren and staff would love to welcome you to our peaceful mountain retreat!
LuJean - Manager Wanda - Assistant Manager
I came to Castle Mountain Lodge in 1987 as a resident manager. I moved here from Brush, CO where we owned and operated our own hardware store. Before moving to Brush we were livestock farmers in Nebraska.  For the last 4 years I have worked here part time and the remainder of the year back home in Nebraska. Now I live here year round. After 29 years in banking, I am enjoying my 2nd career in the hospitality business.  I love the mountains, hiking, music and reading.

I have visited Estes Park every summer since I was a baby.  When I turned 18, I moved here from Iowa and never left.  I have worked a variety of jobs in Estes Park over the last 30 years and am also proud to have served the people of Estes Valley as a volunteer fire fighter, just recently retired after 23 years.  I have been married to my beautiful wife Kelly for 23 years and we raised two wonderful daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, bowling and woodworking. I was born and Raised in Kansas. I came to the Estes Valley for a visit in 1995 and then moved here in October 1996. I love it here!
