“We had a delightful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2010

The manager Paul was very helpful and friendly... The cabin was fun and the porch overlooking the lake was breathtaking to look at all day long. My husband and I plus our 2 boys had fun around the cabin and fishing off the Granby banks.

The rentals are cleaned between guest and before each arrival. All the utilities are functioning and are maintained regularly. The building is and to my knowledge has always been up to code, and compliant with state law.

While it is unfortunate that this guest won't be staying with again, I would encourage any future guests, who find something that they feel is not satisfactory, to contact management as soon as possible and we will work to resolve it as quickly as we can.

We were back for our fourth year in a row to North Shore and had another great experience. The water i sup to the property line! What an amazing view. The kids loved fishing from the back yard -- and we loved sitting on the deck watching them.

My husband loved the free wifi (I would have been happy without it) :)

The rooms are super clean - not fancy but, most important to me -- clean! Paul, the manager is making more improvements each year -- keep it up!!! and thanks again!!!!

This was a relaxing place to be. JP and his wife were great anything we needed they supplied. They also recommended a great horse riding place nearby. The cabin which is set up like a motel was nicely decorated as it was redone not to long ago. We had my 6 yr old, and 2yr old with us as well as our dog, she was able to run around out back with others as well.

There are many activities out back like horse shoe pits, volleyball net with balls, fire pit, and grills, as well as a couple swings. There is a boat rental place two doors down. Seriously this was a cool place for the price too. JP even came out a couple evenings and chopped some wood and hung out and chatted with us. I know we are going to be there again, and even try to get a whole group to go there with us.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The views from the back porch were amazing. You could see the lake and mountains, and the sounds of nature were relaxing. The views at night were stellar! The cabin was quaint and cozy, with plenty of room for 2. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city and towns..like Grand Lake...this place is for you. (it's only 10 minutes from everything) Peaceful, serene, and once again the staff was very friendly. If you enjoy camping and nature, this place is perfect. We will be back.

A buddy told me of this place so I went. He had been there three years ago and loved it. I guess in the meantime the new owners forgot how to water the grass or put towels and blankets in each room. There are old boats, cars, trailers all around property. The "artists rendition" is there for a reason. I highly suggest finding another place until the new owner pulls his head out.

  • Liked — that I got to leave a day early
  • Disliked — The arrogant owner and his lack of improving the grounds

This qualifies as the worst property we have ever stayed at.

Where to start? The best description is of an old motel with a common front porch and a nice view of the mountains - tough to mess that part up.

The room was a one bedroom with a 'fully equipped kitchen,' in actuality the one bedroom had a decent queen size bed and a wobbling bunk bed. The bathroom was very small with no fan. When we arrived we found two towels for our family of six and limited silverware so plan on bringing your own.

Driving up to the place will make you wish they hadn't swiped your credit card since it is in a clear state of disrepair or remodel depending on your perspective. The property has a new sign and new roof, other than that it looks like the Bates Motel.

The back door opens onto a full-length four foot deep deck with stairways at either end. The structure itself is the only single resemblance to the deceptive photo on their website. All the 'amenities' referred to are the following: faded benches, a firepit with no wood, standup barecues (3) like at a state park, two rickety swings (no exaggeration), three faded picnic tables, two kids type swings and about a half-acre of mowed weeds.

Don't take my word for it, nor take the photo and descriptions on the website as valid; go to google maps or zillow and pull up and see the actual property for yourself.

  • Liked — We were able to check out a day early and head home.
  • Disliked — This property is a waste of money and should be demoloished in lieu of a group of condos.

My husband Doug and I are the new management team as of 1/26/2011. As seasonal renters here for five winters, we and our children have always appreciated the fabulous location- spectacular views of Lake Granby and the surrounding mountains, abundant wildlife, excellent fishing and proximity to the trail systems and other activities.

During our stays, we often discussed the changes we would like to make if we were the managers. We are thrilled to now be the managers and to be making those changes. North Shore Lodge and Mountain Lakes Lodge (the sister property) have both seen and will continue to see many upgrades and a new attention to detail. We'd love for you see!

Edie Dafoe, manager
