The lake is still frozen, and Grand Lake is home to some of the largest trout in the West! If you’ve always wondered about ice fishing, stop wondering and come give it a try! We can set you up with a guide, or direct you to all the good spots.

History

If you’re a history buff, we recommend checking out the historic Kauffman House Museum. The Kauffman House Museum was the first hotel in Grand Lake and will be open this coming weekend. Entering the museum is like stepping back in time. While you walk through each of the tiny rooms, you’ll see period dress, furniture, and everyday utensils from the late 1800’s. The historical display of Grand County is fascinating and features the history of Grand County all the way back to when the Utes were attacked on the shores of Grand Lake, and their wives and children who were sent out on rafts to stay safe, capsized and perished in a storm. Since then the lake has been known as, “Spirit Lake.”

Bull Moose in WinterWildlife

Grand Lake is just minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. With warmer days, animals are beginning to move around and migratory birds have started returning to the Rockies. Visit the National Park and keep your eyes peeled for elk, moose, fox, eagles, bighorn sheep, and other amazing animals. Don’t forget your camera!

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
