Glen-Isle Resort Lodge and Cabins Along the Platte River
|Click Here for Reservations & Availability Information|
This National Historic Site on the Platte River offers activities year round with warm, friendly, mountain hospitality -- Welcome to Glen-Isle Resort Lodge and Cabins! An undiscovered mountain hideaway, yet near the big city of Denver at an altitude of 7,750 feet.
There are countless reasons why you would want to stay at one of our cabins in Bailey, Colorado. Our 150 acres in Bailey, Colorado are the perfect vacation spot for friends, family, reunions, or your private get away.
Many of our cabins have fully equipped kitchens and fireplaces; all have private baths, easy chairs, bedding and linens, and gas heat. Pets may accompany you to Glen Isle Resort for a fee.
Escape from the hectic pass of Denver! Once you cross the bridge into the resort, you'll understand why it has served as a peaceful getaway for over a century. If you love to fish, you have a mile of the river to use at your disposal. If hiking is your forte and you desire to explore nature, Glen Isle is surrounded by Pike National Forest, Lost Creek Wilderness, Payne Gulch Trailhead, and the Colorado Trail.
Glen Isle was once used as a Native American campground, and numerous trees still stand today that were culturally modified to mark sacred treasures. If you seek tranquillity, sit on the deck of your private cabin where the hummingbirds and chipmunks are always seeking an audience to entertain.
LOCATION: 45 miles southwest of Denver on US Highway 285, near milepost marker 221.
ADDRESS: 573 Old Stage Coach Road, Bailey CO 80421
