#39--!/2 cabin with queen bed & sofa
This cabin / lodge has been a longtime family favorite. The reason for the title of this
review is that the lodge building and the immediate grounds have the best setting & view of all
Grand Lake's lodging while the actual lodging is in old, mostly small cabins ( but nicely remodeled). In the lodge building (which has no lodging) there is a very nice gift shop, lounging area with great fireplace, bar, & restaurant. Then there is that porch with the swings--one could
easily kill hours enjoying the view from there.
Our very clean cabin had a very good bathroom (shower only)-plenty of toiletries & towels; a good bed,though tucked into a corner which made one side difficult to enter/exit; a mini fridge &
microwave; a ceiling fan; two electric heating units; hair dryer; one bedside lamp; small tv
The main shortcoming of this unit is its smallness--there is very little space to put suitcases,
hang clothes, or keep any extra stuff such as hiking equipment. It is a 2 person unit-max.
This particular unit has a very small front "porch with a bench--shared with attached unit #38
While the setting of the property is great for the views, it is not within easy walking
distance of town or restaurants other than the on-site restaurant.
It proved to be "not a big deal", but the morning of our arrival day we were called and told
that all king cabins were overbooked so we took the offered queen; not clear if the king
1/2 cabin is bigger but it is $50 more per night--probably worth asking about the room size as
a bigger bed in the same size room would be really cramped.
