Peaceful Grand Lake is beautiful right now. Come stay with us and enjoy this time before the snow flies to hike trails, canoe and fish. The moose are still in rut and can be seen following females around in Rocky Mountain National Park. Coyotes can be heard howling every night.
Our pet-friendly Rapids Suites can accommodate the whole family. Don’t forget our BOGO lodging special!
The Rapids will be closing for our fall break Sunday November 9th through Tuesday December 9th, 2014 so the next 10 days are your last opportunity for a fall vacation at the Rapids Lodge in Grand Lake.
Then it will be time to start thinking about winter vacations and Christmas time. We still have rooms for New Year’s Eve so book today! Christmas lights, snow covered streets and fireworks …..

“The Lodge” has had approximately 30 owners. Our colorful history includes gambling, prostitution and bootleg liquor … perhaps this explains the frequent ghost sightings”. Taken from the Historic Walking Tour Guide of Grand Lake, Colorado (available in local stores).
In the 1950’s The second floor of the historic building was a casino and the 3rd floor was a brothel. There was an emergency buzzer located under the front desk, so that folks upstairs could be alerted when the law stopped in. On hearing the buzzer, staff and guests cleared the building via the back doors. When some remodeling was done the slot machines were buried behind the Rapids Suites Building and are still there today.
Our goal is to maintain the “family owned and operated” Grand Lake Hotel tradition of The Rapids, while offering affordable quality for our guests’ lodging and dining experience, in a unique and inviting atmosphere. ALL staff embrace the philosophy that our number one concern is to make our guests happy.
We hope you will visit us soon!
