We stayed in the crow's nest: 2 rooms with kitchen, dining area, and living room in between. Clean, quiet, right by the rapids, close to town. Great value. Decor is eclectic garage sale and floors slope a bit (but are sturdy) . Overall, fun and a good buy!

We stayed in Rapids Lodge Guest Room #1 “Tonahutu”. I consider this one of the best rooms at the lodge. The window that overlooks the rapids is great. Lots of room, good bed and chaise lounge. Remember, this is an old lodge, so the claw foot bath may not be to everyone's taste. Particularly if you are desiring a shower....

We stayed for 2 nights at the Rapids Lodge Condos. We were in Unit 1B right on the river. We absolutely loved our condo. It was HUGE for 2 people. Big living room with a pull-out couch and a comfy murphy bed. Big dining room table and a kitchen with a regular sized fridge. I suppose I should preface by...

We stayed for two nights in River View Condo #6. The weather was cool and rainy for July, but we left the windows open each night to be lulled to sleep by the sound of rushing water. The condo was reasonably priced, very clean and had a well-appointed kitchen. The location can't be beat, and The Rapids Lodge has an...

Another A+ Week at the Rapids! We just returned a week ago from beautiful Grand Lake, CO and as usual, it was a pleasant and positive regrouping for mind, body and spirit. I have been coming to Grand Lake since 1958 and in the early 80’s introduced my husband, then later our daughters and most recently our son-in-law and daughters’...

We stayed in the RV #8 condo for 2 nights with family. The view from the balcony was beautiful!!! The condo was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The location was great-- very short walk to downtown and short drive to the Rocky Mountain National Park.

We held our family reunion here, and the Rapids hooked us us with great accommodations. Great location and very clean, right on the river. Highly recommend. We'll be back! You can walk into town, so no need to drive anywhere. Much better than other places we used in the past.

My husband and I stayed at Twin Peaks cabin for a week in mid July. We had eight people in our party and everyone stayed on the Rapids property. Our cabin was very clean, well furnished, and perfect for us (and our chocolate lab). We grilled and cooked daily and the kitchen was furnished with plenty of cookware. The Rapids...

after dining at the resturant awhile back, we decided to stay in one of the lodge rooms at the Rapids Lodge this time around.The building is old and rustic and they have done a beautiful job of hanging on to the historic flavor of the place. We stayed in River Song and it was just wonderful. If not for the...

We have enjoyed going to Grand Lake for the past 38 years having honeymooned there. This was our 4 th or 5th rental here. We brought my 84 year old Dad with us and thought that his room would be on the ground floor based on an upstairs loft with a downstairs main bedroom, I didn't realize that the 2...
