I don’t know about you, but I find that a trip to the mountains helps me relax and forget about the busy life waiting for me at home. Just one view of the majestic Rockies is generally all it takes to lower stress levels, but if you need a little more help I have found the perfect spot. Estes Park, Colorado offers an amazing spa and resort called Mary’s Lake Lodge. This lodge offers studios, suites, and condos for accommodations along with a great spa and salon. Since the lodge is located on the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park, visitors see wonderful panoramic views of the mountains and its wildlife. If you’re feeling adventuresome, this setting is perfect for numerous outdoor activities such as hiking, golfing, horseback riding, rock climbing, and mountain biking. Many shops and restaurants are also located nearby in Estes Park. If the accomodations aren’t right for you, you can join many other Estes Park tourists and visit Mary’s Lake Lodge just for the spa treatments, the food, and the live music that is featured nightly at The Tavern, one of two restaurants on site.
