Cabins and Rooms

The majority of our rooms and cabins are right on the lake, giving you a spectacular view!

Whether you are in a room or a cabin, the beauty of Grand Lake will be right in front of you.

The view from any of our rooms in the Lakeside Motel will provide an inspiring vista of lake, mountains, and awe.

The Lakeside Cabins offer a spectacular view of Grand Lake and mountains, and just steps away from the waterfront.

The Tree House provides an uptop view of the lake and mountains. The kitchen, living and dining area, and private balcony all face Grand Lake with spectacular views surrounding.

The Courtyard Cabins are located in the heart of the Village of Grand Lake, only a block and a half from the lake.

Need a lot of space? The Lake House is right on the lake, with a private balcony overlooking it, and will sleep up to 8.

This luxury penthouse includes 3 bedrooms with a living area, fireplace and bathroom in each of the 3 bedrooms, and a common kitchen area in the middle.

 Handicap Accessible

We have handicap accessible rooms for our adventuring friends on wheels!

The wildlife surrounding Western Riviera is absolutely stunning — gorgeous birds, moose, fox, eagles, elk, and much more.
There’s no way we can do it justice in words. You have to see the pictures to believe it.

We are open all year long!

Every season has something remarkable about it here in Grand Lake.
Take a look at our paradise throughout the 4 seasons.

The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing! Spring is the season of renewal and awakening; when you can experience the first sightings of new offspring like moose, deer, and black bears, and welcome the hummingbirds back to their nesting grounds. Come see the wonder and excitement of spring time!

Fall is amazing in colors, sights and sounds. An absolute beauty to behold. The quaking of the bright golden Aspen leaves against the crisp blue Colorado sky and the bugling of the elk truly is spectacular! Hikers, kayakers, canoers, bikers, golfers and fly-fishers enjoy the beauty of the season, and our Fall Festival before the snow begins to fly.

Summer is our high season, when our lake and town are at its busiest – the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre is in full swing, fireworks explode over the lake on the 4th of July, antique wooden boats tie up to the docks, Bingo is being played in the park, and the beach area is filled with families, friends, and fun! 

As the snow begins to fall, Grand Lake becomes a winter wonderland. The wildlife heads for lower elevations, the frozen lakes welcome back the ice fishers, and the skating rink and trails are groomed for skaters, snowshoers, cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. Snow covered trees, snowmobiling, skiing, ice fishing. Need we say more?
