A highlight of our trip, our home away from home!!
Posted Feb 13, 2017
We were in CO to do some winter camping at Moraine Park CG but the February winds literally blew us away so we had to scramble for a Plan B: a bed and hot shower at a decent price. We found so much more!! After a rather exciting ascent up a super cool drive, we came upon The Historic Crag Lodge, our last minute Expedia deal and a little treat to ourselves. As the Lodge came into view, we were chuckling at a sign affixed to the Lodge greeting guests, it said 'Welcome Home' but as we were driving away after our SECOND non-budgeted night, we happily ate those chuckles as we fought back sniffles :) I assure you, friends, you will understand why after your first night, we could have stayed a month!! The building is charming, warm, and inviting with original hardwood floors, a large stone fireplace, old photos & antiques. We stayed in studio rooms with a queen bed, bath, and 'kitchenette' which was fully stocked!! Dishes, pots & pans, wine glasses, you name it.. a 2-burner electric stovetop, a FULL-SIZE coffee pot :) The bathroom was immaculate and there was even a warming light. They had beautiful artwork from hikes we had been on which was very cool. The bed was comfy, there were extra pillows and blankets in the closet. Our basement studio had a walk-out patio overlooking Estes Park sprawled below. The staff was INCREDIBLE, so accommodating, friendly, personable, & helpful!! They made us feel truly welcome!! It was an absolute pleasure & we will definitely be back! <3
