Small, tired cabins

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: We loved the lodge, dining room service and food and the swimming pool/hot tub.
Cons: Professionally remodel the cabins.
Location: Grand lake is a beautiful area with many outdoor activities and things to do. We hiked, took the kids go carting and boating.
We loved the setting and the lodge with the wood burning fireplace and historical dining area. The problem is that the cabin are dirty and in need of remodeling. I appreciate the hotel being a historically important property however the owners haven't realized the responsibility of maintaining the property for future visitors.

Amazing view, great main lodge, good restaurant

Posted Aug 5, 2014
One of the best views in the world, and super-nice staff. Restaurant was good if slow. Fun pool. Rooms are half of a cabin, and are quaint and clean, but you must like "quaint"- our floors slanted downward and it was VERY tight for four people. We did love it though and would come back.

"OK" place with a view

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: Great pool area with views.
Cons: Overall cleanliness of the room
Location: Obviously great proximity to RMNP.
We stayed one night in between 2 full days at RMNP. The room was ok, cleanliness was moderate (sheets were clean, window blinds were NOT). The room was definitely cramped, which we didn't mind except that my husband slept on the top bunk and kept hitting his head on the ceiling. The playground and pool area were nice to have with a toddler. Overall, the place was overpriced for what you got.

Random observations: *The lodge is located in one of the most beautiful parts of this world, views are incredible. *Staying here is akin to camping...small room, small bathroom but still fun. *Once we unfolded the fold out bed there was no room left in the room...which is ok as long as you don't need a trip to the restroom. *The Wrangler (named Bob) was a very entertaining, personable and professional character. *Staff were all very pleasent and helpful.

Very nice scenery.

Historical landmark. Very beautiful view. However, the room is quite small for family of 4.

OK...but...

Posted Sep 3, 2013
I stayed here years ago in it's glory days...it's now a shadow of its former grand state....the facility was once isolated by a thick grove of lodge pole pines....these have been significantly reduced and thinned due to drought and Beatle kill....what was once a 'wild and isolated' feel is now gone....given the high price it's just an expensive stop vs. a prior grand destination.

Charming- Summer Visit

Posted Jul 9, 2013
Pros: Beautiful view and wonderful lodge
Cons: Restaurant food and service were average for the price.
Location: Easy drive to town. Sign on property said you could walk to town in 10 mins (20 mins back uphill). Hiking, horseback riding, ATVs, boating, shopping.
Highly recommend staying at Grand Lake Lodge. The cabins and lodge were charming. It fits perfectly with the outdoorsy vibe of RMNP and Grandlake. The views are amazing. The pool was perfect for our kids (11 and 14) after a day of hiking and hottub was perfect for sore muscles, both overlook Grandlake. The main building was a winter lodge, lots of character, big fireplace with swings, wonderful front porch overlooking Grand Lake. The cabins are small but in CO you spend your time in the outdoors, so it did not matter to us. The cabins were quaint, clean and the bathroom was very nicely updated with more high end details. We did horseback riding (ages 11 through 45 yr old) right from the property, Tabitha was a wonderful guide. We ate dinner at the restaurant, food and service were so-so (and pricey), but again the views from where we ate (enclosed porch with windows) were wonderful. Grand Lake itself is a really quaint town, much less touristy and more true west feel than Estes Park. We love it there!

Rustic mountain retreat

Posted Aug 18, 2012
Pros: View
Cons: Small rooms
The view was the best part about this place. The accommodations are best described as rustic. The rooms did not have a lot of space nor many modern amenities, but we weren't there to spend time in our room anyway.

Check out a bigger room.

Posted Jul 26, 2012
Pros: Ver clean.
Cons: Too small room
Location: Breath taking!
Room was ready for early check in. Room was new and very clean. Room was a queen room, but had very little space around the bed, no walking room, or place to put our bags.
