Summer in Rocky Mountain National Park

The peak of summer is here!

The snow has still not fully melted in the high reaches of Rocky Mountain National Park and the contrast of snow fields and wildflowers together is spectacular. Aspens are springing up all over with the moisture, new lodgepoles are growing at a record pace and the colorful splash of flowers brightens every vista.
We were relieved that our Tonahutu Creek never overflowed it’s banks and and many people have thoroughly enjoyed having lunch by the river through the month of June. Our regular guests and many locals are thrilled to have the opportunity to eat outside on our famous patio. We are anticipating high run-off through the month of July.
After being decidedly nervous about flooding every year, we finally built up our stretch of river embankment to make a more permanent barrier. As soon as the river subsides, grass and landscaping will make it more inviting than ever.
So come up and join us on the patio. We would love to serve you!

Did you know…..that Grand Lake’s Water is some of the purest on earth?

Tonahutu River

Our “Tonahutu Blue”  filters through a glacial alluvial field that is thousands of years old. The water is so pure that it will not conduct electricity! So leave your bottled water at home and come drink freely. You can refill your reusable bottles as many times of you want and enjoy being green!

The NEW Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre

Rocky Mountain Repertory TheatreThe opening and early weeks of live performances in the eye-catching and state of the art, Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre, have been a great success. If you have not yet attended one of our summer plays you are really missing out. Come have dinner at the Rapids, see a show and stay the night!

The Theatre used to turn away so many people every night, that they finally started fundraising to build a bigger theatre so everyone could enjoy a show. Five million dollars was raised and the theatre opened it’s doors this June.

The theater has a rich history and some famous names like David Hasselhoff got their start here! Young actors and musicians audition all over the country every season, and many return year after year. This year’s plays are “Beauty and the Beast”, “Chess”, “Guys and Dolls” and “Almost Heaven – The Songs of John Denver”.
