Aspen Lodge At Estes Park to Focus On Groups in the Off-Season; Lodge Will Host Meetings, Conferences and Weddings Only January Through May 2001.
ESTES PARK, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 21, 2000
Estes Valley Resorts, the owners of Aspen Lodge at Estes, announced today that beginning in January 2001, the resort will focus its attention on group visitors, taking reservations only for meetings, retreats, conferences, and weddings during the off-season.
This will take effect January 2 through May 10, 2001. The plan will allow groups more privacy and access to the entire property. Individuals and small parties will be catered to at Aspen Lodge's sister properties, Lake Shore Lodge and Lake Estes Inn & Suites.
"We have found that many of our groups are looking for the `run of the property,' making Aspen Lodge a unique private location for their stays with us," said Bob Horner, Director of Operations and Marketing for Estes Valley Resorts. "Since we are so busy during the summer and fall, the only time of year we can offer such an experience is in the off season. It's an experiment that we believe will have rewarding results for our guests as we will be able to customize our facilities and services to truly meet their group needs."
In addition to hosting groups, Aspen Lodge will be open for various special occasions, including the Bridal Fest on February 25, 2001. Other special events and packages for the public will be announced at a later date, or check our web site at www.estesvalleyresorts.com.
It should be noted that the restaurant and bar at Aspen Lodge will only be open to group guests of Aspen Lodge. From January 2 to May 10, 2001, the restaurant and bar will not be accessible to walk-in guests, except for advertised special events.
