About Mike Thomas

Family owned and now family operated; we have lived in Colorado for nearly 40yrs and acquired the Main House at Lemmon Lodge in 1987 when the youngest member of our family was born. We have loved it ever since with many wonderful memories and family outings over the years.

Mike Thomas purchased this Cabin in 1987

Why Mike Thomas chose Grand Lake

This is one of the oldest cabins in Colorado, it was the main homestead in Lemmon Lodge and has a number of families who have been staying and enjoying the cabin for more than 60 years!

                                                        Our family loves being on the lake and the scenery and close to the village.

                                                        Our stay at the Main House

                                                        Keith P.

                                                        As always my family and I had a Great time at our stay in the Main House. It was 2 years where we didn't stay there, but now that we are back we will book it again.

                                                        We LOVE the Lemmon Lodge!

                                                        Tracy K.,

                                                        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.

                                                        Don H.

                                                        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.

                                                        Mark G.

                                                        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.

                                                        Beautiful, nostalgic, rustic and fun

                                                        My husband and I took 8 grandchildren here for a mini vacation this fall. Children were 4yrs to 11 yrs. What great memories we made. The lake was the cold but the grand kids still managed to get in it. Fall was beautiful. We cooked, played games, hiked watched the Broncos and laughed together. Kids loved the rustic cabin. My husband loved all the photos of lakes hanging about the cabin. Owners are delightful and accommodating.
