Be careful when you see the owners dogs

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

My family and I used this lodging option related to the "pet friendly" policy. The lodge we stayed was outdated, but the rugged feel felt good with the approximation the Rocky Mountain National Park. With the rugged feel, you also had the rugged temperature. These units are not air conditioned. Keep this in mind, while you are higher in elevation, during our time in Colorado it was near 98 degrees.

We did have a nice view of the wildlife; in all we saw one bear and many birds. There was also a trail behind the lodges, which was rugged but a nice 20 min hike round trip.

Now to touch on my headline. Please be cautions of the owners dogs. We read reviews prior to going to this lodge but it was worse then what we expected. The owners dogs roam freely about on the grounds, and often approach the guests. We found that during our time of grilling the dogs would gather around our table and beg, we were also told by other guests that they'd jump on the table and take your food. We attempted to divert them away, however, we didn't have any success. During our last day at the lodge one of the resident dogs approached our dog and attacked him, biting him. We were accompanying our dog and had him on a lease, following the rules of the lodge for animals. When the owner was approached about the attack he responded, "sometimes they go after the dogs on leashes." No apology, we asked for shot records of their dog. Now you know why they post the distance to the nearest vet on their website. We will by submitting the bill to McGregor Mountain Lodge.

Final comments, great views, "rugged" accommodations, not customer focused. I think they are content on not having repeat customers. They charge extra for firewood, rental movies, and for room service.

They no longer offer: free cookies, room service, or coffee.

I truly cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay at McGregor Mountain Lodge was. I suppose that it helps to have spent the 2 nights before staying there in a tent, but it really is a wonderfully charming place.

The lodge is owned by Chris and Lori Wood, and Michael Hodges, who are kind and extremely helpful. Just to give you an idea of how special the lodge is: when we arrived, Michael had just baked homemade chocolate cookies for the guests stopping by the front desk. The owners made us feel at home and provided us with games, hiking resources, warm cookies, and fresh coffee in the morning!

The lodge consists of 19 units, which range from single rooms to 2 bedroom retreats. We stayed in the Heather Cottage, #12. It was described to me in a email as a secluded one bedroom cottage which honeymooners love. Though I wouldn't exactly call it a honeymoon suite, it was very suitable to our needs. It is as secluded as you can get at the lodge, though the front door does face the playground. It was very quiet for our three-night stay. We were away during the days and it was mid-September, so we never saw any children.

The cottage had a full kitchen with microwave, coffee pot and all necessary utencils. We had a fireplace and a fresh bundle of firewood for every night. Since the temperatures were fairly cool in the evenings, we took full advantage of this feature. The bathroom was of average size and had a jetted bathtub and shower. The outside of the cottage has a deck with a very good view of the surrounding mountains. Wildlife do find their way onto the lodge grounds! We heard something with hooves on our deck one early morning and we were told that a bear had climbed up on a dumpster the last day we were there.

Depending on the season and the length of your stay, the cost of Heather Cottage is from $85.00-185.00. We paid $135 per night for 3 nights in the fall.

Directions: From their website
From Estes Park:
Go through the first stoplight. At the second stoplight, go STRAIGHT. You will now be on Hwy 34. Stay on this road for about 5 miles. We will be on the right side of the road.
