Guest Reviews

Beautiful lodge. Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was great but portions a little large. Late Check-in process was easy and clear. Definitely a great place to stay while enjoying the National park. We marked the room down to 4 stars only because it lacked Kleenex and cups. We did eventually find cups in a customer service center on the first floor but bought a box...See More

Our stay at Taharaa Mountain Lodge was awesome. The views are amazing. Having coffee delivered to your room first thing in the morning is the best. The made to order breakfast was great The room was cozy, very clean and the gas fireplace makes it’s nice. Having dinner at Twin Owls Steakhouse was the best. The staff at both the lodge and restaurant took very good care of us....See More

If your looking to get away from the Commercial Hotel Chain, this is the spot. Comfortable, Quiet, and Very Relaxing. We had Elk bed down in the field outside our room. Loved our Stay!

We loved our stay here - the breakfast each morning was so good and the room service coffee was such a nice touch. The staff were all so nice. The views are breathtaking no matter where you look. The only downside is the water pressure in the shower was poor and one night the hot tub wasn’t warm - but definitely didn’t ruin our stay!

Taharaa is a friendly, small hotel with a great outlook over Estes Park. We were in town for a family wedding, and Taharaa was just the right base for us: close to town but not too close. Our room was very comfortable; breakfast was simple but tasty; and most of all, the hospitality was excellent. We also enjoyed dinner one night at the Twin Owls steakhouse. Highly recommended.
