“Great "old" rustic lodge”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

It's too bad that the once-magnificent trees around Grand Lake are practically non-existant now, but despite that fact, Grand Lake Lodge is a wonderful place to stay! From the outside, the cabins don't look like much, but inside, they are cozy and full of amenities like newly-remodeled bathrooms, comfortable beds, tasteful decor, and -- in our cabin, anyway -- a nice sitting room with a fridge and seating. Our large cabin even had two bathrooms!

We stayed too early in the season for the pool to be open, but the views from the patio are absolutely gorgeous. The food in the restaurant is fantastic and the service impeccable -- be sure to sit out on the all-glass patio if you can! The gift shop has some really unique items and souveniers and it was more fun to browse there than at your typical genaric gift shop.

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return!

We stayed overnight on September 14th on our way to Kremmling Co. We had passed this way before and said if we ever came by we would stay. It is an old hotel built at the turn of the century with a big fireplace in main lodge. Dining on the enclosed deck with decent food and decent prices. The rooms/cabins are clean and prices are very reasonable. The view is spectacular which is why we wanted to stay. Cabins are off from the main hotel/lodge. I think you stay for the view and location in Rocky Mt. Nat'l Park

Lodge nice, Food is awesome and bartender could not have done it better! In #13, end unit. large king bed, and most normal hotel amenities. pillows on bed were very small. Bed comfy. Room was cold even with heater on. We had to call desk for iron, (no board), and extra suitcase stand, which they bought right to us. Had to go to the bar to ask for ice, there are no machines but I was given a half bag of Ice which was plenty for the first night. Outside pop machines, 1 can costs $2.50. wow! back in room we find that it is really slanted and have to pace uphill and things roll back toward the window, 2 cup coffee pot, the teeny shower that you cannot turn around in, and a bathroom door that has to be tied up because it NO place to hang clothes, if you want to be unwrinkled bring your own garment rack. TV stand with 2 drawers, and a coat hook for a couple coats. It was a nice time for us but will not pick this one again as is too expensive for what you get.

Room Tip: Bring more pillows, coffee, utensilsl, just like cabin style. ask for Ice, but you dont get a bucket...

Stayed in first cabin on right with separate bedrm from kit/living area. Do not expect a hotel like atmosphere, these are true cabins. They have newer interiors but are cabins. Beds where very comfy,soft and nice. The views from the lodge is spectacular. Maid service slow needed extra pillows & coffee took hours. We attended a family Wedding and it was awesome. One of the best I have been to. The lodge over looks Grand Lake and the town. Only had the breakfast at the lodge was buffet and very good.

Room Tip: All cabins are updated some have one room and bath others 2 rooms and bath.Note that the the second...

Beautiful lodge up above Grand Lake. We stayed in a half cabin...was very clean and updated. Windows that opened with screens and a quality ceiling fan for the warm day and heaters for the night. We heard elks bugling all night long! We had a tv, microwave, and fridge. Shower was clean and new with plenty of hot water.

We enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool.

The only bad part of our visit was the breakfast buffet - would not recommend it. Food was so-so and there were flies all over.

Restored lodge and cabins overlook Grand Lake. Lodge is reminiscent of lodges in national park lodges. Very rustic with unique central fireplace and picture perfect view of Grand Lake. Very good restaurant in lodge with large picture windows facing Grand Lake. Although updated with excellent beds, the cabins are small with modern but very small bathrooms. Plus is parking near cabins

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Grand Lake Lodge to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff could not have been nicer, and our cabin was all we could have asked for. The views from our deck, and the restaurant are world class! We will plan to return to celebrate, decompress, or whatever sometime in the future.
