Charming- Summer Visit
Posted Jul 9, 2013
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!
