Sales Tax: 5.7% (subject to change)
*Note:  this tax is 5% lower than most of the hotels in Estes Park!*

We require a two-night minimum stay May through October. We will book one night stays if 2 nights are not available.

Please call us to see if a one night stay is available for your desired date.

Deposits: When booking online through our website, we require 50% of your reservation total as a deposit.
If you cancel more than 14 days before the day of your stay we will refund you 100% of your deposit.
However, if you cancel less than 14 days before your stay, you will not be refunded the 50% deposit.
If you cancel the day of your stay, we will charge you the full amount of the reservation.

NOTE: If you book through a third-party website, that reservation may be non-refundable in full, depending on the policies of that website. 

Most hotels in Estes Park do not have air conditioning because of the temperate climate in Estes Park.
The weather, for the most time, does not require air conditioning. 
For those really desiring air conditioning, all of the upstairs rooms in Mountainside Lodge (Rooms 7-12) have air conditioning.


Cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and debit cards are accepted for your balance, due upon arrival.

We ask that smokers be considerate of their neighbors and smoke away from any open windows and the lodge rooms, this includes porches or decks.


No pets allowed at Estes Lake Lodge. Anyone in violation of this policy will be asked to leave and you will forfeit the remainder of your stay.

Keep in mind that most of our guests are couples or friends looking to wake up early and hit the trails, so if you are booking
a large group, reunion, or wedding party, you will need to set that up with us. Just give us a call at your earliest convenience.
We want to make sure that you will be comfortable at Estes Lake lodge and that the right rooms to accommodate
your group are available—and that our other guests will also have a great stay!

Any group rentals for weddings, reunions, or larger groups may require additional non-refundable deposits.
