The History of The Estes Park Resort

Welcoming Guests in Estes Park for Years

Opened just in time for the 2000 Memorial Day Weekend, this fifty-five unit resort and conferencing facility located on Lake Estes enjoys premier panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains.  Views including favorites of the Continental Divide, Twin Sisters and Long's Peak make this hotel an extremely popular wedding and group training destination.


Amenities include the Waterfront Grille a full service restaurant with deck dining on the lake, a locals favorite bar, indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, exercise room, and game room. The resort is conveniently located in close proximity to the Lake Estes Trail, an easy 3.8 mile path which circles Lake Estes, and the Lake Estes Marina, which offers bicycle and boat rentals throughout Summer. Designed to handle as many as three hundred participants in a single conference, the facility provides for smaller breakout groups, while offering on-site or teleconferencing technology. The resort provides these state-of-the-art facilities in the relaxed atmosphere of an early 20th Century mountain lodge.


Purchased in 2010 by its current owners the resort was completely renovated including all guest rooms, public spaces, restaurant, and amenities. The owners have continued to improve upon the updates and most recently the Waterfront Grille has been completely refurnished and the fitness room has been equipped with brand new treadmills, free weights, a stair stepper, and a stationary bicycle.

The aesthetics are not the only thing that has been given a makeover; in May of 2013 The Waterfront Grille introduced a new menu featuring items made with locally grown, fresh ingredients to create a unique dining experience. The Waterfront Grille is open year round to hotel guests, locals and visitors alike boasting the best views in town. We invite you to join us for a cocktail on the shores of Lake Estes or a beautifully prepared meal overlooking the majestic Rocky Mountains.

In 2013, the Estes Park property continues its’ tradition of excellence and was voted as one of the “Favorite Resorts” and “Wedding Venues” by the locals in Estes Park!
