This October enjoy fall fun and discounts on lodging in Grand Lake, Colorado!

Weather and Lodging in Grand Lake Peak fall colors in Grand County were a week or 10 days later than usual this year. The weather forecast remains spectacular. The Rapids Lodge still has some rooms available the first weekend of October, so book now! Also keep in mind that our “Special Winter Offer” rates begin October 5th – stay for just $60 per night for 2 people in select Lodge Guest Rooms or $89 for up to six people in the Rapids Suites (some pet-friendly).
Although lunch is no longer being served (until next summer), dinner will be served nightly this upcoming week. After October 3rd, dinner will be served Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The elk are still bugling and rounding up their harems. You can see a herd right at the West Entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park every night at dusk! The elk will be virtually right next to your car. What a great view and experience. They are creatures of habit and this is a nightly ritual.
Don’t miss out – this fall is absolutely glorious!

What are your plans for Easter…?

Easter Sunday is just 2 weeks away and the Rapids Restaurant offers the perfect spot for you your family and friends to get to together. We will be serving Easter Brunch all day Saturday and Sunday beginning at 8:30am, and the dinner menu starts at 5pm. Soon the winter season will be over so make the most of it and come enjoy our cozy fireplaces overlooking the frozen Tonahutu River and our delicious menu options.

Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park are worth visiting at this time of year. Temperatures are comfortable and some days can be warm enough for T-shirts. Waterbirds are beginning to collect in the open channel between Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Reservoir so if you are a birdwatcher you can definitely check some species off your list. Crossbills and Common Redpolls have been common this winter! Moose are beginning to be active and frequently seen too. Our Grand Lake Lodging offers a great variety of room styles so you can find your perfect room whether it is a Romantic Lodge Guest Room, a Pet-Friendly Rapids Suite or a Condo sleeping up to 8 people!. You can’t beat us for a great Colorado Lodging option!

Grand Lake, Great Snow!

Great snow! Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake and the great snow and groomed snowmobile trails have received between 8-10 inches of great snow at lower elevations and up to 4 feet at higher elevations.

These great snow conditions are the best snow conditions of this winter so far and the Historic Rapids Lodge and Restaurant is the perfect Grand Lake lodging from which to base all your winter adventures.

Enjoy a riverside room (the Tonahutu River is frozen at the moment but absolutely beautiful) and stay warm by enjoying the gas fireplace of a River View Condominium. February weather is warmer with more snow and the days are getting longer. A great time to stay  in Grand Lake, Colorado.
