Built in 1899, opened in 1901, the lodge is the centerpiece of Glen Isle, it is dubbed “the last resort”, because in the early 1900’s there were multiple resorts built along Highway 285, that were serviced exclusively by the railroad. Glen Isle is the only one left. The beautiful, historical resort has eight rentable rooms, with elegant, communal bathrooms. The furniture is close to what you would have found it, had you rented a room in the 1920’s. It is a magical space, and an experience you will never forget.
We went on Tuesday night for the barbecue and fireplace with smores. The guitar performance was awesome. Met some great people from Chicago staying there. Loved the fire and food and music.
Bringing the mystique back to life! Conveniently located for a quick getaway. My husband and I enjoyed a quiet night in one of the restored cabins before gathering our children from camp. For many years we've been drawn to the allure of this property. It is evident that Mary Ruth, Greg, their lead Janet and team have poured their heart into this special spot. Preservation is the focus. Celebrating and sharing the Tripp's collection of native artifacts is truly a testament of their appreciation for the rich history. We will definitely return.
Got to spend the weekend with our group this last weekend. First time I had been on the grounds, while others in the group make a point of staying here as often as possible. Now I understand why. This place is absolutely beautiful. From the cabins to the river to the overhanging cliffs, trails, and animals. We stayed in a large cabin near the river. The highway is on the other side and wasn't really noticable with the sound of the river nor is it very visible. The cabin was very clean with a full kitchen. The nice kitchen, separate large dining room/sunroom, large living room were a very pleasant surprise. Because it being my first time on the grounds and not knowing better, I expected it to be cramped, I was pleasantly surprised this was not the case with 7 adults and one small child. The river was very clean and beautiful, the ice cold water was clear enough to see the rocks, occasional fish and gold dust. If it wasn't so cold with the time of year, a few of us were tempted to go in. There was plenty of shade everywhere with the tall beautiful pine trees on the grounds full of wildlife and a few friendly horses. The entire property seems very well maintained and I didn't experience any trouble pushing my child in their stroller on the roads and some trails. Overall a great experience. My fiance and I, will now be looking into having our wedding here over some other venues. Thank you for the experience
My husband and I camped here a couple of years ago on our honeymoon. Since then, we've camped at many other campsites (in many other states) but nothing has even come close to this site! The site we camped at was situated at the top of a mountain, just yards away from the edge. Every morning and evening we would sit on the edge of the mountain to watch the sunrise/sunsets. The views were spectacular. We adore this campsite and can't wait to go back! 10/10 would recommend!
This review is long overdue. Glen Isle is simply magical. The cabins and scenery are incredible, but the true beauty of Glen Isle is the spirit of the incredible individuals that work and take care of it. We stayed here in August for a long weekend with our families and it was truly incredible. Mary Ruth and Brenda are the most welcoming, warm individuals. If you have stumbled upon this piece of magic, I implore you to take the chance and book a room. You will not be disappointed.
We spent the Christmas holiday at the resort and it was a wonderful experience. The hosts were gracious, helpful, and readily accessible. The cabin was everything we had hoped for from the accommodations to the overall ambience. We are planning a return trip in the Spring.
