Grand Lake, Colorado

  • 4 of 5

We love Grand Lake, Colorado and this was a fabulous location. There is so much to do there. We hiked, went horseback riding, went on a boat ride, played countless matches of croquet in the back, tons of family games inside, and had a great spot for watching the 4th of July fireworks. Tallie, the owners rep on-site was fabulous and there to assist us in numerous ways. We all loved the lodge, although a bit tight for our 4 generation reunion, but it really worked out splendidly. I would highly recommend this lodge.

We LOVE the Lemmon Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

Lemmon Lodge is so unique! Private beach, boat docks, fishing on the lake or inlet and blocks from town. This is our 10th year and we will come as long as we can!

This cabin is extra special. So cozy and sleeps a lot! And, as if the Lemmon Lodge didn't have the best location, this cabin is one of the best in Lemmon Lodge. Thank you!

A little old, but served our family well.

  • 4 of 5

A little creaky upstairs which made sleeping a little difficult when anyone got up. The main living area was very nice for evening family time. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and silverware.

It is in a great spot on the grounds too, close to everything.

Great Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented the Main House for the past two years for a gathering of grandparents, kids, and grandkids. Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed the stays with great access to local activities - particularly the nearby ice cream shop! The owners have been very attentive and accommodating.
