Grand Lake Colorado Lodging News

Greetings From the Historic Rapids Lodge and Restaurant, Grand Lake’s favorite lodging and fine dinning.
Welcome to the end of the winter season in the Rockies. March is historically the biggest snow month so come and visit The Rapids and enjoy playing in the excellent snow conditions.  Our
Winter Wonderland Special is still running. Snow pack is well above average. A lot of the birds that left Grand County for the coldest part of the Winter are now back and active. We can expect to see see more wildlife as the weather gets warmer. Snowshoe hare tracks are everywhere!
February was a great success with an almost sold out President’s Day Weekend and lots of happy guests.
The Rapids Restaurant has exciting news to announce.  On May 25th, 2011 our staff will be delighted to begin serving
” Nibbles and Sips” on the patio by the Tonahutu Creek from 11am until 6pm, 7 days a week. Keep an eye on our website for the new Lunch Menu! We expect the river to be roaring  after the snowy winter we have had and it will be something to see!
We look forward to having you join us at the river!

February 2011

February is a pleasant month to visit Grand Lake. The days are warmer and longer and the snow is excellent. Come and enjoy our 96 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and ride right to your room. The Grand Lake Nordic Center has groomed trails for cross-country skiers of all skill levels and there are plenty of trails in the Rocky Mountain National Park for snowshoe enthusiasts and skiers. Soak after a workout at Hot Sulphur Springs Resort which has 21 outdoor pools. There is always plenty to do.

Our menu has changed a little so be sure to check out the updated menu online. We have some excellent additions.

Our three pet friendly summer cabins are older than we thought!
We have recently discovered that our cute little cabins were built all the way back in 1925! Don’t worry, they have hot water, heat and have been very cutely and comfortably decorated by our very own Lynne Ludwig! Check them out and book for anytime from Memorial Day Weekend through Mid-October!
