About Murphy's River Lodge
Doug and Annette Ypma relocated to Estes Park Colorado from Chetek Wisconsin to become the Managers of Murphy's River Lodge on June 1st 2013. They moved here with their Pug, "Mr. Rudy the Rude Dude" AKA Rudy. These Packer Fans (Cheese heads) are enjoying the climate and scenery of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, but still love the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, where most of their children still live. When they get a little time off the couple enjoys scenic rides on their Harley and meeting new people.
Oh! If your wondering about Bruce & Loretta Hetke they are now at our newest hotel, Murphy's Resort.
Annette and Loretta are sisters, they enjoy working together and are what we feel, along with their husbands, Bruce & Doug, a perfect team to make your stay a memory that you will never forget.
