Rocky Mountain National Park: Plan your Spring and Summer Vacation

Spring is here and Grand Lake, Colorado is a great place to visit in all seasons. The Rapids Lodge and Restaurant is a perfect place to bring your Mom or the special lady in your life, for a terrific get-a-way. A beautifully decorated room and sumptuous dinner will show your appreciation for all they do.

Spring run-off – Tonahutu River at the Rapids Lodge

Memorial Day Weekend is next. The ice on the three lakes will have melted off and the Aspen trees will be painting the hillsides a glowing spring green. This weekend still offers quiet and solitude if you choose, as the crowds have not yet descended on the town of Grand Lake. Start your summer fun with a bang and rent a condo on the roaring Tonahutu River, fully swollen with spring run-off. This is a sight to see!

Summers in Grand Lake and the Rocky Mountains are spectacular. Escape the heat! Days are in the 70’s and nights are cool. The Rocky Mountain wildflowers are astonishing in their variety and in the thick fields of color they lay across the landscape. With water-sports, boat rentals, sailing, water-skiing, horse-riding, hiking, touring by car, wildlife viewing, bird-watching and so much more….this is surely the place to be.

The Rapids Lodge has the most variety in Grand Lake Lodging options: Lodge Guest Rooms for two, pet-friendly cabins and suites sleeping up to 6 people, and condominiums that sleep up to 8 people.

We hope to contribute to making your summer vacation in Colorado a truly memorable trip!

Winter Carnival and Lodging at Rapids Lodge

A recent Trip Advisor Review:
“Wood Do It Again” , Reviewed September 13, 2011
Stayed in one of the smaller rooms which was very nice. Loved the quiet location right next to the mountain stream and enjoyed the one block walk ‘into town.’ Tom and his wife were very accommodating, and so was Carol. Would definitely like to come back. Madison, WI
