We were not planning on even being in Grand Lake, but because of the flooding in Estes Park we ended up here and are glad we did! We were happy they had a room available for us. We had a great view of the lake and mountains from our room. Beautiful to wake up to and start our day! In the evening you can enjoy a drink out on the deck by a fire and gaze at the mountains and lake. We loved the log furniture since we were originally going to be staying in a cabin. The giant teddy bear right when you walk in makes the place feel cozy! Had to take some pics with this bear! This place is located very close to the park entrance which is great although we never actually got into the park because it was closed, but we left early one morning around 6:30am to go look for wildlife heading towards the park entrance and saw a black bear, moose, elk, and deer very close to this hotel. The staff was very friendly. Our only issue is one night they had a live band playing in the bar area and we heard it from our room until 9pm. We were exhausted and trying to turn in early, but had to wait until the band was done to get some rest. All in all our anniversary trip wouldn't have been the same without this place! Thanks for helping make our trip a memorable one!
