Testimonials

Read what some of our past guests have to say about their experience holding an event at the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa.

Wind River Conference - Annually since 1999

 

The Wind River Conference (WRC) has been around for more than 50 years. Many of the years were at the neighboring ranch (Wind River Ranch, hence the name). Then, the owners sold the WR Ranch and we started looking for place to have our meeting in this locale. At the 25th WRC we had our banquet, because of 125 attendees, at Aspen Lodge next door. My impression was that the Aspen Lodge was a fancier place and probably too expensive for our academic budgets. A lot of us brought students to the meeting and paid for them.

Ryan and Bente - July 2014

Ryan and Bente's wedding at the Aspen Lodge

"The Aspen Lodge is the ideal wedding venue for those looking for the perfect blend of natural beauty, rustic charm, and quality service.  We really enjoyed the venue on its own right, but combined with the exceptional service on our wedding day it will truly be one to remember.  The folks at The Aspen Lodge really bent over backwards to make the inconveniences of inclement weather at our ceremony bearable, to make our reception dinner elegant and refined to our tastes, and to make our party as fun and care-free as we had envisioned.  All and all, a very adaptable and enjoyable staff to work with and we wouldn't have wished for anything different about the whole experience.  Thanks Aspen Lodge for helping us create lasting memories."

Help us restore and rebuild this property

 

Progress Report - February 28, 2014

We have been working very hard over the winter and have successfully restored water service to the Lodge building.  Within a few days, we anticipate restoring water service to the Restaurant and other buildings.  As you can well image this effort has proven to be quite difficult and expensive.  Any additional financial aid that you can give to help restore this historic Colorado lodge property to full operational status will be greatly appreciately.  We will be fully operational on June 1st, 2014 and want to remain one of the premiere mountain lodges in all of North America.

 

Aspen Lodge Resort and Spa hit by a landslide

 

On September 12, 2013 at approximately 10pm, torrential rains from a storm over central Colorado created a massive catastrophic event over Twin Peaks near Estes Park, Colorado. Mud and trees destroyed everything in its path and eventually reached the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa, causing devastating destruction to the infrastructure, cabins, stables and lake.  Many of the employees living on the property have been displaced. Thankfully, no one was injured but the situation remains critical. The Lodge water system was destroyed and those living there are without clean running water, hot water, and a sewage system.


This beautiful property, of over 80 acres, is currently covered with 3 feet of mud and debris. A massive clean up of the property and surrounding areas, as well as rebuilding the road and water systems, is needed as soon as possible.

Please join our efforts to rebuild this community. Each and every donation, regardless of size, will have a profound impact on restoration and preservation of this beautiful area. We are gladly accepting volunteers to help clean up the lodge and the property. Please contact us at 970-586-8133 for volunteering opportunities.

Thank you for any support you can give - whether a donation, a thought, or a prayer.

SITTING HIGH ON THE MOUNTAIN AT 9,200 FEET AT
the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park is Aspen Lodge, a destination resort and wellness spa retreat. It is now oper- ating under new direction with Yun Xiang Tseng—known as Master Chen—a 25th generation Taoist priest from Wudang Mountain in China.

Under Master Chen’s new ownership, the newest addition to the 82-acre wilderness retreat has been the conception, design- ing and building of a world-class Asian wellness spa and retreat.

As a Taoist priest, Master Chen is focused on traditional Chinese medicine as a foundation for the spa, which delivers special wellness programs and advanced Asian therapies.

When Taoist Tai Chi master and entrepreneur Yun Xiang Tseng (known as Chen) took over ownership of the long established Aspen Lodge Resort and Spa in Estes Park, he began refining its facilities and services to reflect a “triple bottom line” approach to business (people, planet and profit), and added a holistic health spa, a new organic restaurant and greened all its operations. The result is an environment perfectly suited to conscious businesses and professionals that combines a remarkable natural setting with thoughtful management and services. It is truly an inspiring location for meetings, whether just one day for 10 people or a weeklong retreat for 150

Since immigrating to the United States from China in 1990, Yun Xiang Tseng -- Chen, as he is known -- has had one goal in mind. He's a little bit closer to that goal since buying the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa this spring. He now has a place to build his goal, but in the meantime he's got a business to run.

Some say Tai Chi is natural, harmonic and organic. Practicing Tai Chi brings people closer to nature emotionally and spiritually. Now, you can do what many practitioners dream of, to go to a mountain sanctuary to practice the art in a wholesome experience. Attend a Tai Chi retreat or organize your own Tai Chi camp at the Aspen Lodge and enjoy the beauty of the Colorado Rockies.

Estes Park is a town in Larimer County, Colorado. It is a popular resort and the location of the headquarters for Rocky Mountain National Park.

One year ago this month, Master Chen purchased the Aspen Lodge, located less than eight miles south of Estes Park off Highway 7. Master Chen sees himself as a vendor of the resort - as a Taoist Priest trained on the sacred Taoist Mountain of Wudang in the HuBei Province of China, he teaches spiritual healing, Tai Chi, and Quigong at the resort and spa; he has more than 8,000 students nationwide. Aspen Lodge is now his base, said Chen, and the classes and seminars he holds there have allowed the resort and spa to stay viable year round. Chen had been practicing in the United States for more than 20 years before purchasing Aspen Lodge, which he describes as a sacred place with unsurpassed beauty.

The Tahosa Valley is a sacred place, located between Longs Peak on the west and Twin Sisters on the east. "It's the unity of 'yin and yang' of the muscular power of Longs Peak and the feminine softness of Twin Sisters," explained Yun Xiang Tseng (Master Chen), the new owner of the Aspen Lodge.

"The Aspen Lodge property is located between the nurturing mountains, on a property that is very mystical, with a history of native ancestors. It is a very sacred land," said Chen.

At a very young age, Master Chen was recognized and chosen by his master to learn the ancient wisdom of Wu Dang Tai Chi, Qi Gong, meditation and healing arts at Wudang mountain. He is a 14th generation Wu Dang Zhang Sanfeng lineage holder and a 25th generation Long Men Daoist Priest.

Practice in the West
In 1990, Master Chen immigrated from the People's Republic of China to the United States at the behest of his master, Master Li. He now resides at the future temple site in Estes Park, Colorado at Aspen Lodge, with his wife and three children. With his gift for making Daoist thought accessible, Master Chen has taught the Wu Dang tradition of Daoism to many thousands of students in America and many people in China.
