Our Lodge carries historical significance as the first National Park Service headquarters for RMNP, although the facility has been renovated several times including a major facelift to the main floor in late 2010 so you can fully enjoy your stay.

Our lodge has 16 bunks in three rooms, as well as several bathrooms, hot showers, a full kitchen, a computer with internet (or wireless for your laptop), and a lounge with games and a ping-pong table. Spend your evening socializing with fellow climbers, and enjoy waking up in the morning with no long drive. Located only blocks from downtown Estes, you can easily walk to almost any place in town.
