If you are looking for the perfect place for a wedding, an anniversary getaway, a birthday celebration, or family reunion, this is the place for you. The staff at Taharaa Mountain Lodge are all incredible. They are attentive, courteous, and friendly. One of my best friends got married this past weekend, and her family rented out all 18 rooms. It was the perfect place for everyone to spend a few days, and really enjoy celebrating the bride & groom. The rooms are spacious and all include a fireplace. The suite was huge with a sitting room, large bathroom (huge bathtub and shower), and beautiful bedroom. All the rooms face over the beautiful Estes Park valley. The wedding ceremony took place on the outdoor, covered deck. It was a gorgeous backdrop for a beautiful winter wedding. The reception was held inside their great room, which was gorgeous with all its large windows. Each morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast, with the breakfast potato boats being my personal favorite. They also hosted a cocktail hour in the evening. If you want a talented group of people that are sure to make you feel special, regardless of the occasion, and the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Estes Park look no further than Taharaa Mountain Lodge!

We live in Boulder CO so not far from Estes Park and we returned to Taharaa Mountain Lodge because we so enjoyed our first visit. We were very happy with our stay and had such a nice visit with the owners along with snacks and a glass of wine served before dinner. The view is so wonderful of Rocky Mountain National Park especially when enjoying the delicious Gourmet Breakfast. We hope to return again soon.

We visited the Taharaa to celebrate our 19th anniversary. We had been there last February to celerate Valentine's Day. The lodge is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and cozy and provide the perfect atmosphere for a couple wanting to get away from it all. It is in a perfect location for restaurants, hiking, snow shoeing or just staying in your room - reading with the fireplace going! The owners are great people - very friendly and hospitable - while affording you privacy too. The breakfasts are to die for! Always a wonderful surprise to wake up to! I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone! We can't wait to go back!

Taharaa's version of a southwestern eggs benedict, a unique creation. Diane & Ken have attended gourmet cooking classes in St. Remy, Provence, France as well as New Orleans, LA. Being natives of New Orleans lends a "special" international flair and style of cooking and presentation of the gourmet breakfasts. Guests enjoy different breakfasts during their entire stay.
