Happy New Year from the Historic Rapids Lodge and Restaurants.

What are your January Vacation Plans? Do they include coming up to Grand Lake?
I hope so, here’s why:

Top 5 Reasons to Come to Grand Lake in January:

Reason # 5 – Escape the Crowds; it’s so quite in Grand Lake in January. Snowshoe on the trails in Rocky Mountain National Park, cross country ski on the Grand Lake golf course. Take a short hike to Adams Falls, located less than a mile from the lodge; the falls are amazing in every season but spectacular in their winter white with ice hanging from rocks. You will have the trails to yourself – soak up the solitude.

Reason #4 – Get the best lodging deal at the Rapids Lodge when you stay in January. Give us a call and we will get you the best rate on a lodge room or condo at The Rapids Lodge.

Reason #3 – Free ice skating in downtown Grand Lake behind the playground.

Reason #2 – January 25-27 is the 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Contest. Come up and practice your ice fishing skills before the contest.

Reason #1 – Grand Lake in January is simply the most beautiful place in the world to be.
