Grand Spirit

In the past, it was named Spirit Lake by the Ute Tribe because they believed the lake’s cold waters to be the dwelling place of departed souls. We have combined these terms to describe Grand Lake’s premiere accommodations and events venue, retaining the best of our history while providing the modern conveniences that make your stay and event memorable. Grand Spirit® and Western Riviera Lakeside Lodging provides you with the greatest selection of lodging in the locations and price ranges you desire. Grand Spirit® and Western Riviera Lakeside Events provides the perfect backdrop for any gathering year-round.

In every season, our staff is available to answer questions for you and will work hard to earn your business. As you plan your vacation or special event, we hope you choose Grand Lake as your destination and Western Riviera for your events venue, catering and lodging.



The Western Riviera Motel is located on the shore of Grand Lake in the heart of the Village. All 16 rooms face the lake and include phones and color cable TV. In the summer, listen to the hummingbirds from the Western Riviera Motel deck as you revel in the breathtaking view of mountain vistas reflecting on the lake, or enjoy a game of beach volleyball and the picnic area located between the motel and lake. During the winter, the volleyball court becomes an ice skating rink and the view a winter wonderland!



Western Riviera Lakeside Cabins
 are located on Grand Lake directly across the street from the motel with spectacular views of Shadow Mountain and Mt. Baldy. The upper cabins include kitchen efficiencies and walk out onto a shared lakefront deck with chairs, picnic tables and grills. The lower cabins include a small refrigerator, microwave and a coffee pot, and walk out to a shared lakefront deck with chairs. All cabins include color cable TV, but do not have phones.
