Our Story, The Lodge, Vacations

Growing up at Glen Isle

Anyone who has set foot on Glen Isle’s property can feel the lodge’s rich history. The fresh mountain air, flowing river, and wildlife flourishing in the pine forest have attracted visitors since 1901. The rustic cabins have offered cool breezes for guests escaping the heat of the city for generations. While the world around us has changed, the lodge continues to host friends and family for campfires, yard games, and fellowship. 

The magic of Glen Isle is not by accident, it is because of the legacy of families who have owned and operated the lodge. It started with a group of investors, then was purchased by the Baldwins who handed it down to their granddaughter Barbara Tripp until it was purchased by the Vincents. There have been updates and renovations, but each owner has respected the character that makes this mountain retreat special.

Perhaps no one knows the history of Glen Isle better than Heather East. The youngest of five Tripp children and great-granddaughter to the Baldwins, Glen Isle has been in her family since 1923. 


Winter Activities for Your Next Colorado Vacation

The Rocky Mountains of Colorado offer adventure and fun throughout the year. While some visitors plan an annual summer trip to the Glen Isle Resort, others appreciate the beauty of winter even more. The mountains feel incredibly majestic when the temperature drops and the snow falls. 

Just because it gets cold doesn’t mean you have to stay inside. Colorado winters include great outdoor adventures and the small town of Bailey has access to some of the best options in the state. Let’s review some favorite winter activities guests can enjoy.
