We stayed 2 days in a room with a balcony. Staff was friendly and accessible. Loved the sunset views of the lake The large wooden decks of the lounge have built in warmth and we enjoyed a wonderful 2-man concert-- terrific violin. A bit far to walk into town ( about 2 miles). The decor was mountain cabin style with pine and flannel; quite charming. We recommend the Rapids for gourmet dining. We loved the extra towels---not sure the sheets were changed. We wish that we would have received extra shampoo, lotion, etc., as well---but all in all--- a great stay. We will return.

Excellent rooms with unique furntinture. Good sense of humour as indicated by the "Cowboys please scrape the ....." sign as you enter the property. Good bar area serving a variety of beers on tap and complimentary popcorn.
Lovely patio area to have breakfast with scenic views over Grand Lake. My wife was met with slightly apprehensive response when enquiring if the lady at reception was the owner (she was) but all she wanted to say was how much we had enjoyed our stay!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on tripadvisor.com. I feel that I owe you an explanation for the hesitation when asked if I am the owner. My family owns the hotel. My father and brother built it and I recently returned to run it again after being away for 5 years. I do have ownership in the hotel but most of the time it is just easier for me to say that I manage rather than own the property. Because the entire family owns it people get confused when one of us says that we own it and then another family member says that they own it. I hope you understand and will forgive my hesitation. Anyway, I am glad that you had a nice visit and taveled home safe.
Thanks again!
