I'm glad I passed on the hotels in Granby which had less to offer and cost more! I loved the look and feel of the lodge and talking with the owner to get a little savings helped out too. She was very friendly, as was her husband I met the next day. I needed a room with a microwave and... More

Not impressed with this place. It really needs an update and a good cleaning. We have stayed in two different rooms at two separate times. One time the room was given to us, but cleaning had not been completed. The second time, the room had problems, including a backed up bathroom sink (which they tried to fix to no avail),... More

We stayed here over Father's Day weekend and really loved it. The owners were so nice. They have coffee and light breakfast in the morning. Our daughter loved the pool and play ground. The rooms were well keep, very clean, and had everything. They were a little small and a little dated, but that was fine with us. This is... More

The owners of Black Bear Lodge were very nice. This is a small, simple place on Highway 34, very near the the Road 66 turnoff to the AA Barn - popular wedding venue. This is why we chose it. Though the continental breakfast was minimal (homemade banana bread, simple engllsh muffins, hard boiled eggs, two kinds of cereal), it met... More

This is a unique lodge with lots of space for friends and family. The lodge keepers, Therese and Robert, devote themselves to making their guests feel welcome and comfortable. Easy distance to Grand Lake village and Rocky Mountain National Park. A great place to begin or end a hiking or skiing adventure.

My wife and I stayed at BBL for three nights as part of a two week Colorado trip celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The owners Robert and Therese took over about a year ago and have been working hard to upgrade and update the property. They are both very anxious to please and helpful to provide recommendations of things to... More

It was a great place to stay. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely. The upgraded room accommodation was a welcome surprise, as my mother was traveling with us and it made it easier. The owners were most hospitable and super friendly. The rooms were clean, quiet, and downright mountain town homey feeling. We would definitely stay her again if... More

The owners were very pleasant.. The room was clean and in good shape. Overall the facility is a great value and our three night stay was a joy.. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, family friendly motel in Grand Lake. It's not the Ritz but for around $100 night it's a great option. Grand Lake is not... More

I stayed at the Black Bear Lodge for a two week vacation in July, with my two children, ages 7, and 14. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Robert, and Therese are exceptional hosts, and always go above, and beyond to make sure their guests have what they need, and to make sure they are comfortable. We had a nice... More

We spent a night at Black Bear Lodge in late June and really wish we'd stayed longer. Co-owner, Therese, is the friendly, helpful face behind the front desk, and even upgraded us to a bigger room for free (before we even got to see the room we booked). Robert is happy to chat about their love and respect for the... More
