We rented one of their little pet friendly cabins. It was so cute and rustic, it reminded my husband of the bunkhouse that used to be at our farm years ago. Since it had a kitchenette and I didn't know what it included as far as cooking and eating utensils, I called ahead to find out about pots, pans, table...

Great relaxing setting. Property was clean, bright and comfortable. Sat on the patio overlooking the inlet stream. Amazing and relaxing. Loved every minute. The restaurant is a bit pricey but well worth it!! Delicious. Convenient easy walk to town

My husband and I took a very last minute trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. We wanted to spend a night in Grand Lake before driving through the park and chose Rapids Lodge based on Trip Advisor reviews and availability with just one day's notice. We were not disappointed. The creek behind this resort is beautiful and we found it...

I have been visiting Grand Lake every year for the past 56 years. My father and mother always took us to Grand Lake every summer in July for our family vacation while we were growing up and I have continued the tradition ever since. This year I decided to stay at a different place, The Historic Rapids Lodge, and I...

This was a wonderful, clean, unique and such a BEAUTIFUL place to stay. My husband, 2 children (16, 10) and father-in-law stayed a night in one of the cabins. The location is phenomenal. It's away from the small "busy" town which gives you the feel of a real mountain stay. There are a lot of rooms/ cabins and they all...

We stayed in the never summer cabin for four nights. It was nice, quiet and relaxing. Never got to go down to the stream because it rained a lot. The staff was nice and helpful. We did a lot of hiking during the day then came back to the cabin for dinner. We cooked and had everything we needed. Can't...

A girls trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park in June was made better by staying at The Rapids Lodge. The website helped us pick the exact condo that fit our needs. The river outside of our condo provided the sweetest sounds to fall asleep to and the fireplace provided the right amount of warmth each morning. The condo was...

I was the leader of a group of 12 or so people who spent three nights at the Rapids Lodge in Grand Lake. The object of the trip was a birding excursion for the Wichita (Kansas) Audubon Society. We stayed in one of the kitchenette suites. Really enjoyed our stay here. The town itself is far less crowded than the...

We stayed in condo 5B which had two bedrooms, two baths, living room, small kitchen and dining area. The condo was clean, beds were comfortable, and the location on the river was beautiful. Check-in and check-out was easy and the staff was very friendly. We were able to walk to restaurants and shops. We would stay here again.
