Rainbow Lake Resort
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

We were passing through on our motorcycle and stayed in an extremely clean rustic cabin on a beautiful wooded lake. We saw deer and hummingbirds galore. Fishing was amazing and decided to try. A big thank you to manager Rocky for making it happen. His friendly and helpful ways will be our best memory along with our tasty trout dinner. Planning a family gathering soon.

Stayed: July 2014, traveled as a couple

We were first introduced to this place in 1984, and we've been back about 26 years since then. It's great for fishing, although we enjoy our time there even with only minimal time with a line in the water. Good hiking opportunities for all, from a hike around the beautiful lake, to climbing to the Teepee, to hiking the Colorado Trail and even summiting one of the several 14'ers within a short drive. Even a commercial hot springs five minutes down the road. We already have reservations for next year.

Room Tip: Call early if you want a reservation.

The cabin was very comfortable and very clean. We had everything we needed including sugar for mixing sugar water for the hummingbird feeder on the deck. Loved hiking around the lake, fishing, watching the hummingbirds, the bon fires in the evenings and actually relaxing!

Rainbow Lake is a haven for fishermen as it is stocked with trout. The quiet, scenic resort is a jewell near Cottonwood Pass. The lakeshore is sprinkled with quaint cabins that vary in size and occupancy. No special amenities here, including TV or WiFi in the cabins, so that it is truly a get away place. Each cabin has serviceable kitchen. This is an ideal spot for either a family reunion or a quiet get away. And of course, the area which includes the Collegiate Peaks is prime for gorgeous hiking, nearby hot springs and river rafting.

Room Tip: If you have a family with children, we recommend "Big Cozy". Large living room with firepl...
