Under the proud ownership of Sandra Huerta and Thad Eggen since 2019, the Taharaa Mountain Lodge is the perfect spot for quick weekend getaways and longer sojourns from the world alike. Combining quiet elegance and a relaxed atmosphere with a commitment to service cultivated over the owners' six decades combined experience in the hospitality industry, there is truly no other experience in the Valley like the one you'll have with us. Wake to the majesty of the Rocky Mountains, spend a day wandering the trails of the National Park or the charming streets of Estes Park, and finish your day in luxury and comfort. And, with the addition of the Twin Owls Steakhouse to our space, you won't even need to go looking for the best meal in the Valley, either; it's just a few steps down the hall, every night.
