Last Minute Spring Break Plans …

If you have left your spring break planning a little late, how about Grand Lake Colorado! It may not be crazy, it may not be crowded but it is simply beautiful with lots to do. The Rapids Lodge property consists of a variety of lodging such as Lodge Guest Rooms, River View Condos, Rapids Condos and Rapids Suites. The condos sleep up to 8 people and the Rapids Suites are one of the best hotel deals out there – just $89 per night for up to 6 people. What an adventure it will be in CO!

The Rapids Lodge is unique among Grand Lake Colorado lodging options. The hotel was built in 1915 and boasts a few ghosts. If haunted hotels are your thing, you might find the Rapids quite interesting. We are just a few blocks from the Western Riviera lakeside lodging and a ½ block from the Grand Escape Cottages Grand Lake Colorado. Walk to the shops in town, walk to the frozen lake, walk everywhere!

So what is there to do? Rocky Mountain National Park of course: cross country skiing, snowshoeing, wildlife watching and more. Then there is ice-fishing to try out (rent your ice fishing gear at Rocky Mountain Outfitters), sleigh rides at Winding River Ranch, a good soak at the Hot Sulphur Springs, tubing and downhill at Granby Ranch, Dog Sled Rides of Winter Park and Grand Adventure Balloon rides (a great experience in winter).

The Grand Lake Colorado Weather in late February and March can bring some awesome fresh snow but the days are longer and warmer making outdoor adventure much more comfortable. We have had good snows this winter and despite a warm spell, our base is good so winter fun will last a long time!

Call us today or book on-line. Spring Break is here.
