Spend Christmas with us at the Estes Park Center. Limited cabin inventory moving quickly. We would love to have you: http://ow.ly/FGfWT
Christmas is a wonderful time to be in the Rockies. While snow around Colorado may be limited come Christmas morning, it has been agreed that your best bet for a “White Christmas” is in the mountains. What better way to spend your holiday than in a cabin at YMCA of the Rockies' Estes Park Center ...

We stayed at the 3 bedroom summit vacation home for 4days with 6 young adults total 8 people. We had,a,wonderful time the boys referred to our vacation as the most fun they've ever had on a vacation. We hiked, horseback riding, went visited the national park and saw wildlife everywhere. We visited Estes Park almost everyday. We as parents were very impressed and happy with all the services and staff. Our cabin was perfect, we all fit comfortably and felt like we were home. Special thanks to all the YMCA staff for making it the best Rocky Mountain experience ever!!

I have most fond memory with this place. You'll refresh your mind, spirit. Also food is good too. Definitely visit again. You can do bonfire, just ask for permission from staff.

Why is your web site so unfriendly to anyone trying to make reservations. We have called and either been put on hold forever or disconnected. Your web site is even worse. This will be the ninth year for our family to spend a week at the "Y" camp at Estes park, but making reservations is just as impossible now as it was years ago. It is as if the "Y" is in the previous century. Once we get there and finally are checked in, we all have a wonderful time. but making a reservation is almost impossible.

I love the YMCA for what it is - an opportunity to be in the mountains without the distractions of tv and electronics for a few days. If you cannot go without your modern amenities for a few days then this is not for you. We always stay in the cabins with family, or for a girls weekend out with a group of my daughter and her friends. Pluses are the snowy mountain views (in the winter), activities (craft barn, pool, gymhouse), proximity to town, and the fact we all stay in one big cabin together with a fire going all weekend. We always make meals in the cabins as the cafeteria food is just that. The cabins could definitely use some updating on the interiors. But I still overlook all of that because this experience is unique - a chance to reconnect with other people and nature without the usual distractions. Most of our other vacations involve the hussle-bussle and modern amenities we have all come to be accustomed to - kudos to the YMCA to sticking to their mission for all these years.

Warm, helpful staff, beautiful scenery, lots of fun, family friendly activities. There are always lots of people staying here, but the Y is on such a huge piece of property that it never feels crowded. Wildlife galore. Wranglers are a super fun group to hang with. Cabins were cozy and clean. Best vacation ever!

It is a great and reasonable priced place to stay. If you are a couple, only 2 people, you cannot get a room with just one or two beds. Each room has 5 to 6 beds, some are bunk beds. Still. it is a great place to stay. A very good price, right beside the Rocky Mountain National Park. If you do not go to the park, there is a "park" within the YMCA, with lots of activities and things to do. In the morning, you get a free breakfast and, many times, you see the elks roaming the YMCA location. It is right next to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park city location. My husband and I loved it. We wanted to get a cabin (there are so many cabins at YMCA) but were told we could only get in one of the lodges--which are small hotels. There are several of them and you never know which one you are getting. But--all the ones I saw all had a window looking outside into the park area. It is not what I expected BUT, we loved it and would do it again. In the lodge we got, you do not get room service for cleaning you room daily, but since we were in a lodge, you can turn in your towels and bedding and get new towels and bedding daily, but you will have to take care of it yourself. Still, it is like the past, your are a somewhat pioneer in the park. A good thing to do if you are wanting to got to a park and live in nature. It is much easier than living in nature; you just have to help yourself a little bit. It is a great experience!!

My review is about the meal I had today (June 28, 2014) in the cafeteria. I paid over $10.00 for their lunch buffet (I was a visitor to the YMCA, and not a guest staying there) thinking it would have some healthy and varied choices. I was VERY disappointed when I saw that there was a small salad bar, and a taco bar (chicken, ground beef, canned corn/veggie mix, canned beans, re-fried beans, corn chips, and some runny cheese) and nothing else. Desert included oranges, apples, or some kind of fruit bar. I considered this to be a 'fast food' type of meal which might cost $5.00 elsewhere. I think if I'd been on my own I would have asked for my money back, but I was with a friend and we decided to make the most of it because it was a change from the usual places we went for lunch. When I visited the bathroom afterwards, I found it to be very dirty, and certainly not up to the kind of standards I'd expect. I used to go to this buffet a number of years ago, and I recall there being a variety of food types available that took into account the huge diversity of people that stay at the YMCA, such as vegetarians, and people with different religious beliefs, and those who just wanted to eat healthy. There were very few healthy items on this menu, and vegetarians would have found it hard to get a good meal out of the choices. When I see bathrooms that are not up to par in cleanliness, I have to wonder what the kitchen is like. I haven't been to the YMCA of the Rockies to eat for a long time, and it will be a long time before I try again.

Thank you for spending time with us and for taking time to give us this helpful critique. We are certainly sorry you didn’t enjoy the meal experience, but totally understand that our offerings don’t work for everyone. We have shared your comments with the management team and will be applying what you’ve shared to our planning. We wish you the very best for the rest of the summer.

The facilities are mostly built new. Everything is contemporary and comfortable with a mountain feeling throughout. We had our first visit for Easter Brunch. The selection of food in the buffet was INCREDIBLE and the quality was outstanding! Afterwards we spent some time playing miniature golf. Overall our Easter celebration was very memorable and we will return again! Leanne Goff
